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 and antiaging Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, plus a deluxe sample of the antioxidant-rich Photo Finish Foundation Primer. There’s also a Baby Buki Brush small enough to take on the go for any touchups.

Not a great color
Purchased

I love the powder and brush. Like, looove! I like how you twist and get just the amount you need so there's no wasting, plus the brush is super soft. The color is perfect and stays on long.

The primer is pretty good, nothing spectacular. It does make my skin feel soft.

The BB cream is useless to me. The coloring is all wrong. It's too dark for my skin. It doesn't blend well. You can see it in my eyebrows and streaks on my face.

Wow. My new favorite powder!
Purchased

This was my very first time trying a Smashbox product and boy, oh boy am I happy I decided to buy this? The powder is out of this world. I've always had this shine on my forehead that I constantly have to hide by reapplying powder many times throughout the day. With this powder, I only had to apply ONCE and the shine that I hate so much was GONE! Don't get me wrong, it is nice to have a glow on your face, but not when it is an oily glow. This powder takes care of it! My new favorite piece of makeup!!!

Great kit, loved the halo powder
Purchased

I have been eying this kit for awhile. I use this plus smashbox bb cream for eyes for a complete look. I like the primer but don't think it is necessary under the bb cream for my skin. Without the powder the bb cream doesn't stay matte on my combination skin, but with the powder it is perfect. I will definitely consider purchasing full size.

Two months strong

I've been using the powder for two months, and I've still got plenty left! It's always tricky when buying sample sizes to know how long it will last. It alone is worth the price of the sample box, but the primer and BB cream are great to give Smashbox a try when you're on the fence.
Careful with the baby buki brush- it feels lovely, but when it starts shedding, black hairs on your face are hard to get rid of.
4 stars, only bc I mainly use the one product from the kit.

I really like the Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder. I bought the large size after trying to product. I think this is a great line and it is a good way to get to know the products.

Excellent
Purchased

This trio is great for my skin, which is sensitive and prone to break-outs. The BB cream is better than others I've tried. It provides decent coverage and doesn't feel oily. I was also really pleased with how many applications I got for the size of the products.

LOVE Smashbox!
Purchased

This "Try It" kit was great! Just what I needed. I also bought a sample size of the green-tinted primer to use with this stuff, and I really like it a lot. And the loose powder is the best.
