This product would be prefect if I had normal to dry skin. However it does an okay job controlling oil but I would not recommend it for super oily skin types like myself.

    Worth the Price

    Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: Primer Authority:

    I have very oily and acne prone skin. I've been using these products for a week now and love it. After applying my moisturizer, I spray on the primer spray and let dry. I then dab on the primer on my checks, nose and forehead (where my pores are huge). I then apply my liquid foundation and the rest of my make up. My make up lasts through my 9 hour work day without the need of dabbing with oil blotting sheets.

      Great Starter Kit

      from St Louis MO

      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.

          from Anaheim

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

            Cons

            • Irritated my skin
            • Not effective
            • Smells bad

            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.
