If you’re surprised to see a beauty blog by me, it’s because I don’t wear a lot of make-up. Preferring a low-maintenance, natural look, I stumbled through the Smashbox website looking for some quality products for a special occasion and found the Try It Kit!

With five fun products to play with, this not-so mini kit includes the following:

 
• Photo Finish Foundation Primer
• Photo Finish Lid Primer
• Hyperlash Mascara in Blackout
• Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume
• Limitless Eye Liner in Onyx
 
My Favorite by Far: The compact little mascara really only takes a touch to boost my Italian lashes into bright black perfection. Oh, and it doesn’t smear and give me raccoon eyes halfway through the day which is always a plus. (I actually bought a tube of mascara that did that one time and ended up looking like part of the Thriller video, yikes!)
 
Runner Up: The eyelid primer. You know how your eye shadow never seems to stay on past lunch? Well, a little smear of this lid primer will totally help your favorite shimmer stick around for a while!
 
Why did I choose Smashbox?: Because most of the products used on the models here at LuLu*s are Smashbox, and every time I have gotten to dabble with them I’ve never been disappointed.
 
Results?: Overall I am totally impressed with the quality of everything that came in this exciting little box, and definitely found it worth the money. What do you think, would you try it?
