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've bought this for gifts for several friends/family members. The sampler has good sizes of the primers, mascara, gloss and black liner. This also makes a great kit of travel-sized essentials. Their primer is one of my favorites. I don't always use makeup, but when I do, I put the primer under my foundation and my foundation glides on smoother and I don't need to use as much. I recommend this for anyone wanting to try some of their basic favorites - or wanting to put together a cosmetic travel bag. I have a separate cosmetic travel bag already loaded with my favorite items, which includes these - so I'm ready whenever - I just grab the bag and go! These sizes are a good value.4
I absolutely loved everything in this kit. I even went on to purchase full size products. You can't go wrong with this purchase!5
Loved everything in this kit. I'm new to some of the fancier makeup innovations, so this kit was an awesome starter kit.5
I love this set and will likely be purchasing again! The foundation primer lasted forever and I love the mascara! Great find!4
I really liked the smashbox primer samples, especially the eye shadow primer. Went on smooth, and had a great lasting feeling all day. The gloss looks amazing over all colors of lipsticks and lasts.5
I'm reordering this sample pack today!! I use all the items often and smash box is one of my favorite lines of makeup products. I promise the finishing primer makes my wrinkles on my forehead disappear...who doesn't want that!! High recommendation!!5
Primer: I don't think this primer really works. It feels kind of dry and it is hard to spread. there's not much product in it either. My eyeshadows still crease, and sweat, which never happens with the lorac primer.
Mascara: Not a big fan, there's lenght, not volume, and I find that it transfers to the bottom of my eyes and makes me look like a panda.
Lip gloss: I really like the lip gloss, it's kind of thick, and sparkly, so it's something you only put in the middle of the lips to make them appear bigger and plumper and juicy. Really great color too.
Primer: Not the best, I honestly don't get why people think it's that great. My face still get shiny with this, but it does create a more smooth surface for application
eyeliner: I did not use this, I gave it to my mom, but she says she loves it. It doesn't transfer and it's long lasting.
Mascara: The mascara is long lasting and does not smudge easily. It also gives good lash extension.
Lip gloss: Love the lip gloss! It does not last as long as I would like, but I love the neutral color and shine.
Eye primer: Did not notice much of a difference with this product.
Black Liner: Last throughout the day and goes on nicely. I'm not sure if the full size comes with a smudger, but it needs one.
Let's face it, who doesn't LOVE Smashbox? Right? So on a whim I decided to purchase the Cosmetics Try It Kit to sample some different Smashbox products. I particularly liked the eyelid primer and the nude gloss. Sadly, the eyelid primer sample provided only two days worth of product and the eyeliner pencil broke off on day three because the amount of product actually "in" the pencil was miniscule. Common, Smashbox, you can do better.3
I really enjoyed every single product in this kit. I felt like all of the items were of a high quality. The colors they sent were very basic but that is perfect for everyday use.5
