              I love this product, I work it a few times and each time I fell in love with it. The only problem I have with it the long lasting part of it ,it's not. About 3 -4 hours you have to keep touching up . I kept touching up my t zone .not a huge problem but something to think about. Great with photography love all my wedding pictures looked like my actual skin

                The primer goes on easily and you don't know you have it on. It keeps you from feeling the BB cream on you skin as well. Love that the BB cream is SPF 35! The powder is light weight. The brush, tho' tiny, works beautifully!

                    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.

                    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.

                        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

                        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.
