      Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: Primer Authority:

      I love these primers! This Smashbox set is my go-to purchase (when it's not sold out) for everyday and any day priming! I tend to buy in sets because I have different needs in different seasons and I love to try various brands, but this all time fav. I have combination skin and the foundation primer works great on both dry and oily areas. I sweat a lot too but this primer stays with me all day! The eyeshadow primer makes a huge difference in the longevity of my makeup and keeps my smoky eyes looking blended and smoky, no creasing or fading! The undereye primer is great for moisturizing and helps cool and calm puffy under eyes when I wake up late and gotta go! It also keeps my makeup from creasing and caking when I plaster it over my dark circles. ( I work late hours and have early toddler mornings so I basically look like a member of Fight Club) Untill I bought this kit, I thought "primer water" was a farcical way of exploiting my wallet but this stuff is for real! I use it to set my finalized face, and after long sweaty hours, I'll spritz again, puff on some powder and I look fresh and put-together (which I'm totally not). I'm prone to breakouts since I'm oily and sweaty and lazy ( I DEFN don't always wash my face before plopping into bed) and this primer is so forgiving when it comes to my skin. Beware, once you get a taste of the items in this kit, you'll be addicted for life!

            There were absolutely no directions or anything provided with these products. I know how to use all but one of them. Even though these are samples or travel size, they should come with directions. Why would I continue to buy these products in larger sizes when I don't know how to use one of them????

                    I was hesitant to pay full price for the Smashbox primer, and then found this testing box and I love it! It comes with 4 various primers and I end up using them all each day! This is a good way to see which products work best with your skin type, and also if you want to make a long term purchase. I love them all!
