Not for me

By Cindy

from Dallas

Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: BB + Halo:

The brush sucks, and feels cheap. I have very acne prone sensitive oily skin, and the bb cream caused me breakouts. The shades also suck. They have an orange color and did not make my face look natural. Same with the powder: shade is very orangy. The primer did it's job, but not the best.

Good for daily makeup

By Arise

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: BB + Halo:

I didn't expect to like this BB because I haven't had the best experiences with the others ice tried. I had also seen reviews that said it was drying for those with normal to dryer skin. The Halo powder is why I bought this because it doesn't have talc or bismuth. Well, the BB goes on beautifully. While it doesn't do a thing for under eye darkness or other discoloration it does even things out enough for the powder to provide moderate coverage. I use moisturizing primer and haven't noticed any flaking or dryness. I don't use the included primer only because I prefer my anti-aging one.

    Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: BB + Halo:

    The primer, bb cream and powder all work so well together. My pores were gone for the first time just with the bb cream. Of course they don't do the job of a concealer, so don't expect that. Also, amazed at how it stays on ALL. DAY with good oil control.

                    I bought this for a trip. I love the BB cream and hydrating powder. The primer isn't my favorite but it was create to have in cold dry weather.

                        The products within this set should last approximately (with average use):

                        Photo Finish Primer = 7 days
                        Travel BB = 30 days
                        Halo To Go = 3 months

                        A:

                        We recommend testing the BB Cream and Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder at your nearest ULTA store to find the best match: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                        These products are suitable for all skin types including sensitive, acne prone skin. For those with rosacea, we recommend spot testing the products on an inconspicuous area of your skin to ensure you experience no irritation before applying as directed.

                        BB Cream does feature a built-in primer. Use alone, or apply over Photo Finish Foundation Primer - it's up to you!
