Smashbox Cosmetics Try It Kit: BB+Halo

Thanks to the BB trend, we’'ve come to expect all our makeup to contain ingredients once reserved for the fanciest of moisturizers. This sampler of Smashbox best sellers has just what we need: It features travel-size versions of the brand’'s signature Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35, which keeps oil in check while delivering UV protection, and antiaging Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, made with 11 amino acids and a potent peptide to reverse the look of fine lines. Plus, it has a deluxe sample of the antioxidant-rich Photo Finish Foundation Primer, with vitamins and emollients to smooth out skin, and a Baby Buki Brush small enough to take on the go for any touchups.

Not bad but not for me
Purchased

This was a great starter kit but I usually don't wear much else other than a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. While the Halo powder is super light, my skin is really dry so you can almost always see my dry skin more with any kind of powder use. The BB cream I will say is really great, but I'm still loyal to my korean one.

Love this kit!!!
Purchased

I've always heard really great things about Smashbox, but couldn't really afford their make up, UNTIL Birchbox started carrying the line. I was mega excited to grab this try it kit when it came out. You get 4 good sized products. You get their AWESOME Primer. It alone, is worth it's weight in gold. Excellent velvety finish. The powder is a great size, comes with a baby buki brush for applying and the Camera Ready BB cream is awesome! !! If you like Smashbox, this kit is for you! !!

Great for acne prone skin
Purchased

I love this kit! I never wore make up because it would cause break outs, but this kits stop, heals and prevents break outs! Love it!

Love the primer and BB, not the powder.
Purchased

The powder is definitely not meant for oily skin. It goes on smoothly and gives a beautiful finish but once it sets, my face turns into a shiny messy. The primer and Bb cream are awesome.

It's okay
Purchased

I loved the set because it wasn't too expensive which means I could buy it before I buy the full size. I tried it out and it wasn't for me. I feel like I have tried other products that fit my preference more but I have heard really good reviews about this. The only thing I really liked was the compact buki brush and the powder.

Smashbox halo hydrating perfecting powder
Purchased

Bought this to check out the bb cream and I really do like the texture and the color it leaves on my skin. The powder on top of the bb cream is really a bit drying for my mature skin. I do like the accompanying baby buki brush, it is very soft.

Fabulous
Purchased

I loved all of this,my only wish that the samples were bigger. But I will definitely be ordering all the products so I guess that's the point of the box.

Love it
Purchased

These products work so well together; I highly recommend the kit. I've used Smashbox's BB and CC creams in the past and am impressed by their coverage. I decided to get the kit so I could try the primer and powder together with the BB cream. I was pleasantly surprised that after a long day, the BB cream stayed put on my face and my skin still looked flawless.

Great kit
Purchased

This is a wonderful kit to sample all these items. The sample sizes are pretty good size and more on the deluxe side. While not all the items worked for me it was fun to try them all before purchasing full size and being disappointed.

Great way to try the Camera Ready BB and Halo Powder!
Purchased

I am loving both the Camera Ready BB cream (SPF 35, awesome) and the Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, which is amazing for coverage, setting the BB cream and hiding undereye lines and crepiness. I'm afraid I'm going to need this as a staple. This is a BB cream that amazingly, WORKS and isn't too oily with my oily skin. Love the SFP factor too. I got light/Medium in this kit and I'm NC30-35, it's a great match. The Baby Buki brush is just the right size for the Halo powder, and it's soft. Can't go wrong with another Photo Finish Foundation powder either!
