    Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: Primer Authority:

    Bought this for the eyeshadow primer, for a fee dollars more and a little less product, I bought this kit. I have used each product now and love it. My makeup stays ALL DAY even through my sweaty workouts, but still comes off easy with basic makeup remover.

        Pros

          • Irritated my skin
          • Not effective

          Best Uses

            Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: Primer Authority:

            I went into Ulta only to buy a face cleanser and ending up buying more than that. When I was paying I saw this try me kit and thought to give it a try. When I got home I was excited to try it out but I didn't see any difference on the application of my makeup. It also made my face red and bumpy. Bottom line is that I would not recommend this to anyone.

                So Ive never been a smashbox products owner, I decided to try out this little kit to just make sure the things are worth the money. Primers are great size and fulfill my demands. Set my makeup perfectly and last very long. Will definitely try some single products from smashbox!

                  Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: Primer Authority:

                  I was really impressed with the deluxe sized primers in this kit for such a low price. I loved every one of the products. I had used the regular photofinish primer in the past but had never tried the shadow primer or water primer. I have to say it has edged out the Urban Decay shadow primer in my book.
