        Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

        I don't use this as a setting powder. I use it to finish off my face this has a little close more color than my setting powder. The fair/light is perfect for me. I tried light and I feel that it's a lot darker than most powders labeled as light. I use it to touch up my face throughout the day it is not cakey.

                Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

                originally i was looking for a finishing powder and was delighted to know i could use this as a foundation, too. I use the smashbox primer and get a really smooth result! I do reapply about 4 hours later because my natural oils show up in the T zone. The color / shade matching, lightweight feel, buildable coverage ability (heavy or light), packaging of the powder and ease of use earns a 5 star rating in my book.

                        Hi There! Yes, Smashbox Halo Foundation can be used as a light to medium coverage foundation. Apply it with a brush after you've applied your Photo Finish Foundation Primer for a look that will last all day.

                        Hi There! We don't have a shade like Banana, but we do recommend Light for similar purposes. We use it for baking and highlighting. The Halo Perfecting Powders are awesome because they also hydrate the skin leaving you with a unique finish.

                      Hi, I have light medium skin with pink undertones. Out of the shades light, light neutral, light/medium, and medium, which one has the most pink undertones? I am less concerned with how light or dark it is against my skin and more concerned with matching my it to my pink undertone. Please advise me on which shades/or shades have pink undertones. Difficult to tell through pictures.
