    I bought the sample to see if it did what it said and worked well. It does so I will buy the full size when this runs out. My only complaint is the smell of the BB Cream, not awful but not great.

      I love this set! I don't wear make up a ton, but the coverage is absolutely perfect. It doesn't look overdone, but still covers and blends amazingly.

      Hands down, my favorite foundation kit!

      "Try Me" size great for travel. I love the swivel mechanism that controls the amount dispensed. I will definitely purchase full size. I have an oily T zone and was already using Smashbox BB cream ---this is perfect to use with. I am 60 and love the Smashbox products.

                      PERFECTS: Tinted formula evens out skin for a flawless finish..
                      HYDRATES: Improves skin moisture in 4 weeks. Guaranteed..
                      PROTECTS: SPF 35 guards against UVA/UVB rays.
                      CONTROLS OIL: Minimizes shine with no chalky finish.

                      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.
