Smashbox Try it Kit Review

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

Iv been wanting to try Smashbox makeup for a long time now so i was happy to get this as a present for Christmas. You basically get 5 tester size products of their bestsellers. It includes a primer, eye shadow primer, eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss. I wanted this kit so i could try the products before buying the full size ones as they are expensive its a great way to see if i like them first.

Iv seen alot of people rave about this primer so i was excited to try it out. I'm quite disappointed to say that i didn't love this primer like i thought i would. The texture is very much like Maybelline's Baby Skin Primer a gel like consistency. Maybe its just these types of primers i don't like? I have oily skin and found this to feel a little greasy on my skin and just wasn't for me. I'm glad i tried it so now i know i wont go purchasing the full size product.

After trying the face primer i wasn't too excited on trying this one. I have to say i was wrong! I love this, its completely different to the face primer. The texture is more creamy and has a beige colour to it. I applied this before applying my eye shadow and it felt very smooth on the skin. Iv had my eye shadow on all day and it has definitely helped my eye shadows last longer. It says it can also be used under the eyes to highlight. I will be looking into buying the full size for £15.00.

Im so impressed by this crayon. Usually i buy pencils so i didn't know what to expect using a crayon. Its black and applies so easily. Below you can see where i tried to wipe it off using a baby wipe and it is really hard to get off which is amazing for a liner.

When im looking for a mascara i always look for one that has a thicker wand as i like my eyelashes to look fuller and longer. When i tried this for the first time i loved it. It makes my lashes fuller without clumping. 

I used to be a big fan of lipgloss until this year when iv started wearing more lipsticks. I was willing to try this gloss as it does look stunning. I found it looks gorgeous applied on top of a nude lipstick or worn on its own. It doesn't feel sticky and lasts quite a long time.

  1. I have tried the photo finish primer and I really liked it I didn't re purchase it though just because I'm not into high end brands

  3. It's a shame the primer didn't work for you, I use it and think it's absolutely brilliant! I guess it's just what skin type you have/what suits your skin though x

  6. Totally agree with you about the primer I was underwhelmed by it but loved the eye primer which I hadn't been excited to try! I'm glad i tried this kit before buying full size it's such a great way to find out what you actually want and more brands should do kits like this!
