      I am 50 years old and it is hard enough trying to get concealer not to settle in creases, but this actually smooth's the wrinkles and sets the concealer perfectly!

                Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

                So I ended up in Ulta the other night to buy my old mineral makeup for $28 and ended up leaving with the Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder instead. Along with that they also talked me into the Smashbox Hydrating Primer. I used both of these products the next morning and I am so impressed. I don't know how I used my old foundation and primer for so long. This product glides onto your skin and gives great coverage with just a kubuki or if you want a more medium/full coverage I'm sure you could do a denser brush. I am beyond impressed and it was nice that the brush wasn't pulling my skin at all. Would definitely recommend! The packaging is also really great for control of how much product you want coming out. If the price tag scares you this product does give you .5 and other mineral products give around .25. So you're realistically getting twice the product for a little less money!

                      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.

                          Hi There! We suggest Light/Neutral as the closest match to shade 4 in the Photo Filter Foundation. Pair it with our Photo Finish Primer for a look that will last all day.
