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.
I was really looking forward to recieving this package since I love BB and CC creams and I usually love smashbox products, but this one was aweful! I always get the light/med and all the other creams fit my color nicely but not only was this one too dark it was a fake orangy color..not at all attractive. The powder was the same with the fake orangy tint. The only redeeming quality of this kit was the primer which I liked and the only thing I actually used.2
I got the Fair/Medium set and it might have been a shade too dark even though that's usually what I get. The primer is great, not too thick or greasy at all. The bb cream isn't my favorite, it was a little cakey and on the orange side but its light enough coverage that it isn't too noticeable. The powder and brush are the BEST part of it! It gives you nice even coverage and is very blendable so you aren't left with streaks. It's pretty long lasting as well, overall a good little kit to keep in an every day cosmetic bag!4
I really like the primer it leaves my skin smooth for application. However, since I have freckles the BB Cream and the powder makes my face look chalky.3
Really liking this small kit. I'm loving the Halo Powder. I love how you can turn the packaging to only allow the amount you want/need to come out. Definitely helps with saving your product. The BB cream is nice, but I've had better luck with drug store products. The prime seems to be working really well so far, it makes my foundation go on a lot smoother and doesnt give you that greasy feeling.4
I've spent years trying to find a BB cream that I truly love and this one is one of the bests. I always have this in my makeup kit now. It's an excellent product and when I wear it, my face doesn't feel heavy which is important to me.5
I loved everything in this set, but just the Photo Finish Foundation Primer made it worth every scent! My face never felt so good!5
I love this set! I didn't use the brush because I already have some I like for powder. The bb cream blends so well and the powder is very light. I feel well covered, without feeling too heavy. I will be purchasing the the components in full size.5
I love getting to sample products without having to commit to a bigger size. I love the dispenser of this hydrating perfecting power- it's main selling point. It twists up to dispense the perfect amount. Great for travel because it doesn't spill everywhere causing you to loose product. Quality of powder is above average- I've used better powders but it works and I"d consider buying again. LOVED the baby buki brush- have a lot of these but this has loose bristles which allow me to get a lighter more natural look with the power which I really like. Did NOT like the BB cream- flaked on my combination skin and didn't absorb well or feel good. Photo finish was fine but couldn't tell a difference- would but the photo finish alone.4
I LOVE these products! I have never been able to wear makeup that actually stayed put all day. I highly recommend!5
I likes all of this. The brush would be better with a handle. I may buy some of the bb cream.3
