    I love this product! I have been using this over 3 years now. Love this, blends perfectly with my skin, I have olive tone skin and not a lot of redness and this product works beautifully. I don't need heavy coverage and this works well for me. If you need heavy coverage, this may not work for you. I use it everyday and cannot live without it. I definitely recommend this product.

                    A:

                    Hi There! You can increase the coverage of your Halo perfecting powder by using a blush/powder brush to apply it. If you already do this and are willing to try a new formula we suggest our CC cream in Light. It's a gorgeous formulation that will leave your skin looking flawless.

                    Hi There! The Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder works well as a foundation. We suggest applying it with a medium size brush to buff away imperfections and even out skin tone. Apply this over a Smashbox Foundation Primer for a finish that will last and last.

                    A:

                    Smashbox does not use the claim non-comedogenic on any of their products. Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder is non-acnegenic, meaning it has been clinically tested by a board certified dermatologist and determined that it does not increase acne lesions on acne-prone patients.
