Smashbox Try It Kit – Lash Primer + Mascara

Smashbox Try It Kit - Lash Primer + Mascara

I’ve mentioned countless times on here before how much I love Mascara. The longer and thicker it makes my lashes, the better! I am always on the hunt for the perfect Mascara, however my favourites are changing constantly. I had never seen this Smashbox Try It Mascara Kit before, but my mum mentioned it and once I saw it, I knew I needed to try it out.

The kit itself is made up of 3 different travel sized Mascaras and a Lash primer. Each mascara has a completely different style of brush and aims to either lengthen the lashes, volumise or both. As you can imagine I took quite a few photo’s so just to warn you that this post is very picture heavy!

Photo Finish Lash Primer
I don’t normally bother with a Lash Primer, I like to let the mascara do all of the hard work/I always get up late and don’t have enough time to apply one. I have used this a good few times lately and I must say the mascara does look a lot bolder after this is used first. I apply 2 coats of this before I pop my mascara on and it lifts my lashes up perfectly.

Full Exposure Mascara
This is a bit of an all round mascara. You can see that it adds both length and volume to the lashes and I have started to use this as my ‘everyday’ mascara. I love a chunky wand and this one is perfect for capturing each lash and separating them.

X-Rated Mascara
I think that this may be my favourite of the three in the set. The volume this creates is amazing, and the lashes get a lot bolder, the more layers that you add. This is a perfect day to night mascara as you can just keep layering up until you get the thickness that you want.

Indecent Exposure Mascara
This is another good all round mascara. It is very similar to X-Rated but provides a little more length.

All in all this set is perfect if you want to try out all of the Mascara’s before deciding which big version to get. All of the Mascara’s lasted all day on me without budging at all, this is probably down to the Primer’s hard work but I couldn’t say if it was completely down to this alone. I honestly think that it has something for everyone, whether you are looking for length or volume for your lashes, there is something here for you.

    I haven't used a lash primer in FOREVER. The last time was probably that double ended Maybelline mascara from YEARS ago!! You have beautiful lashes 🙂
