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!

Loved some of this!
Purchased

I was not a fan of the primers, but I loved the lip gloss and mascara. I don't think I'd buy these items separately, besides the mascara.

Underwhelmed

I love being able to try multiple products in one inexpensive kit, but after a few tries I can't say anything here has become a regular in my makeup routine. The pencil liner is probably the best bet here.

Great little variety pack!
Purchased

The clear primer gel gives you a flawless finish. It looks really great and has this softness to it. The lip gloss is a great, convenient, all-occasion item when you need to make your lips shiny and pretty! Mascara gives you very dramatic lashes. The eye primer is OK - not great, not terrible, just didn't do much for me either way. I'm not entirely sure how "smudge-proof" the pencil liner is - I can usually manage to smudge my eye makeup pretty effectively.

Nice sample box
Purchased

Lipgloss and highliter great. Did not like mascara found it drying. Primer not good for normal to dry skin. The lipgloss taste good and has lasting power. Moisterizing.

Such a fun way to try out some of the Smashbox fav's! The primer was my absolute favorite; it was so smooth and light on my skin and made my foundation apply like a dream!

Great way to try the best

I love smashbox, but I didn't want to try full size products until I knew I loved what I was gonna purchase. The key products in this for me was the primer and mascara. The mascara defines your lashes, and the primer truly does smooth out imperfections. I recommend all.
