Smashbox Try It Kit
Purchased

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!

A great value
Purchased

This is a wonderful way to try a number of products at a great value. I bought this last summer and used it all season. I especially enjoyed the eyeshadow primer and the lipgloss. The eyeliner is great too--very smooth and easy to handle.

Found new products & a new travel kit!
Purchased

I took this kit with me on study abroad to use for fun nights out and special events.

Having never used a primer before, I was VERY impressed with both the lid & skin primers. My eyeshadow never creased with the lid primer. A new favorite!

The lipgloss is great for a neutral lip, not too sticky.

LOVE the mascara. Stays all day with little to no fallout and removes easily at end of day with a makeup wipe or micellar water.

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.
