    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

    I love that depending on what brush I use I can go light with a kabuki for day time coverage (sheer-light) or with a denser brush and have all over medium-plus coverage when needed. I love the feel of the powder on, it smooths me out, and evens my tone. I go 8 hours before getting any hint of shine and a little touch up gets me through the night. It lasts and doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin. I use the fair/light and it's the first powder I think really matches my skin tone.

                A:

                Hi There! Yes, this powder will hydrate and give coverage to your under eye. For added hydration we also suggest the Under Eye Hydrating Primer. This will reduce texture and add additional hydration.
