If our beauty routines are any indication, history truly has a tendency to repeat itself. This sampler set from Smashbox has inspired us to seek out some novelty in our makeup regimen. It’s packed with the brand’s best sellers in portable travel sizes. There are two lightweight primers for your face and lids, a double-duty mascara, a smudge-proof black pencil liner, and a nude gloss.
I got this kit because I tried the Photo-Ready primer through a sample in my Birchbox a while back, and wanted to check out the other things before purchasing. The price can't be beat, really, the "sample" sizes are generous, and should last at least a few weeks with 'normal' use--some of them even longer, like the lip gloss and eyeliner.
>The primer is awesome, a chick-pea sized amount is good for the face and neck. It goes on like silk and really gives your BB cream or foundation a smooth, matte surface... not to mention the staying power.
>The eyes shadow primer is also good, though really catered to fairer-skinned ladies. I had to dab a bit with my fingers to "blend" it onto my lids so that its presence wasn't so obvious.
>The eyeliner is decent, probably one of the better pencil liners I've used. It goes on dark and smooth... and doesn't tug. Its staying power isn't as impressive as some liquid liners.
>The mascara is not for me, unfortunately, but that's ok, that's what this kit is for. It went on a little too thick, a little clumpy, but boy is it ever waterproof... you'll definitely need make-up remover for this guy.
>The lip gloss is nice. It goes on pretty sheer, peachy/sparkly and just gives your lips a little bit of color and shine without looking like you ate a glazed doughnut. It looked especially nice over some red lip stain.
All in all, this kit is great, even if you just use the stuff for travel, it's all pretty solid, quality stuff. You won't regret this buy at all!
I love combo sets and this one didn't disappoint.
Lots of fun things to try (all of which were useful and of good quality).
Would recommend to anyone wanting to try out Smashbox products.
This month I recieved all the things I was willing to try and enjoyed them so far it would be nice to receive something for puffy uner eyes.5
Great if you want to try the products included. I loved every piece the kit contains. Each option seems worth the money.5
Great way to get introduced to Smashbox. My first purchase at Birchbox and was definitely worth it. The primer is great, the mascara is great and the eyelid primer is good (I don't wear a lot of shadow to need). Didn't like the color of the gloss. I just like a little more pigment. But it's nice and not sticky if you just want something sheer.5
Products were dry and the lid primer was especially light on content. Wouldn't buy this again. Mascara ran easily and was gummy.2
I loved this box of samples. Every thing works great. Thank you very much. The primer supersedes Mac's make up primer.5
Threre's so much to like! I really like the lid liner, and it's great to have the small mascara for my make-up repair bag in my purse. My daughter snagged the liner immediately.5
I wasn't impressed with this. I like the mascara and that's really it. Not a fan of everything else in the kit.3
overall great products - the primer is awesome, the mascara is great. not crazy about the sample size of the concealer but pleased overall.5
