Review of Smashbox Cosmetics Try it kit

Hello My BA Beauties and welcome to another installment of my POV :) ( insert giggle here)

I treated my self to a buying craze at Smashbox Cosmetics and bought great items to add to my Makeup collection. Part of my Vday gift to myself was purchasing the Smashbox Try it Kit. The kit cost only $19 though the value of it stated is $52 and I can see why.

 You receive .25 fl oz of Photo finish foundation primer, .02 fl ox of the Photo Finish Lid primer, .13fl oz of Hyperlash mascara in Black, Limitless eye liner in Onyx and Smashbox Lip Enhancing Lip Gloss in Illume .14fl oz. Now since you guys know I am about finding products for those just starting out or getting back into makeup, this is a fabulous kit to purchase.

The primers feel amazing and so light on my skin. Since I have never used a foundation primer before I was not sure exactly what is was for. Smashbox's foundation primer has a lightweight blend of vitamins A and E, Grape Seed extract and Green Tea. It is said to create a great canvas for you to put your foundation on and it can me worn alone or under your foundation. It said to help reduce fine line and reduce pore size.  All I can tell you is it feels amazing on the skin.

Since I already own some of Smashbox's eyeliners, I was already impressed with those so the limitless eye liner was no exception. I am however getting to have more eyeliner in various colors. There is just something creating eye lines is colors just fabulous to me.

The Lip enhancing gloss is gorgeous and so not sticky which I am overjoyed with. It can either be worn alone or used over your fav lipstick.

Now, unfortunately, I did have a bit of an issue with the hyper lash mascara. While the mascara itself is amazing, the applicator is plastic and flexible which wasn't the problem. The problem is how wet the mascara goes on initially. I know most beauties want their mascara to go one and dry quickly. But that's really my only issue.

So lovelies, I submit to you for consideration the Try it kit from smashbox. Great starter kit.
