    Love it. I bought the foundation knowing I was working a trade show and needed something to last. I put it on in the morning and wore only needing to apply lipstick through out the day. I did think it was a bit pricey however would use it again.

      I wanted to love this but it caused the worse breakout I've ever had! The sales girl acted like it was the best of the best and I was highly disappointed. The price is ridiculous considering you onky get a super tiny container. My search for a great bb cream continues....

          I purchased this product last minute the evening before a beach sunrise photo shoot.
          The sizes were perfect given I didn't want to purchase full sized product for infrequent use. Easy to apply and stayed on well even in humid beach conditions. I really liked the photo ready primer.

            I have already used Smashbox's BB cream, which I love, but never their primer or powder. This kit gave me the opportunity to try them out without spending a fortune. All the products are winners, and a nice bonus is that they're the perfect size for carrying in my cosmetics bag. The kit is a good value for the price, and I definitely recommend it.

                I did favor this product at first. I do have acne prone skin and this has pretty good coverage for not being a foundation. The lady matched the color more to my body and neck color compared to my face color, at first it worked but then it does come off easily and i had orange looking areas on my face throughout the day. It does not come off completely even after washing my face twice. If it washed out well i would have kept it or just bought my right color.

                    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!
