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.

Perfect

This kit is perfect. I purchased this with my points for a steal. The bb cream is light on my face and blends great. The primer is amazing , really works with hiding pores before makeup application. The powder is awesome and big! It will last a VERY long time , I brush it on over my makeup to give more a finished look. This is a perfect set for someone who wants to try products from the company. Overall completely satisfied and impressed with quality .

Replaced my foundation with this!
Purchased

I have used other bb creams, this is the best! I love how light it feels on your face, but still gives you plenty of coverage without looking oily. Stays on all day!

love love love the powder
Purchased

Was super excited about this kit. I have received a sample of the foundation primer once before and was one of the main reason y I purchases this kit. It applies so well and feels like velvet! I must say I was expecting more out of the bb cream. I smells like sunscreen which is understandable since it does protect from UV rays. Wish it had a bit more coverage and it doesn't bland as well as other bb creams. The powder is what I love. Love how when u turn it that it shaves the powder so u don't have a loose powder floating in ur makeup bag which is always a mess waiting to happen. The powder sets the bb cream nicely while at the same time doesn't feel cakey. Also the brush feels great and blends the powder very nicely. Great kit to try for a natural look!

Great!

This set makes my skin look amazing. I think I might have chosen the wrong color of powder so it looks a bit yellow on me but that's my own fault.

The perfect gift from my girlfriend

My girlfriend and co-makeup junkie sent this set to me and it's awesome. The Photo finish primer leaves your face feeling literally like silk. It's better than DHC's velvet skin coat and I thought that was the best before I tried this one. The powder is light--which I like because I cant' stand a heavy powder that makes my face feel hot and cakey. this doesn't do that! They also put out one of the best BB creams I've ever tried. I'm not usually a fan of BB creams because they are too heavy, but this one was light enough for me to wear. And the little brush is just a nice bonus. It's very thick and high quality. It helps blend everything in together and it's also small enough to fit inside my makeup bag that goes in my purse. I hightly recommend. It's on my wish list to buy for myself eventually but there's still some items ahead of it on my list. Sooner or later I'll get around to purchasing one for myself. Thank you, Suzie for the great gift! Love you!

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

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.
