      Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

      If you are iffy about buying this don't be! This is the perfect compact!! I've always used pressed powder because the loose was so messy to carry with me. Now I have the best of both worlds. You twist once you open it and it will 'shave' off just enough pressed powder to make it loose powder. It's the best thing ever.

        Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

        First time using Smashbox, and I LOVE it! Recommended by a sales associate in the store, and she was SO RIGHT! She was very helpful, and I don't think I've ever loved a powder more! The way the product is packaged and used is SO much easier than Bare Minerals. Don't get me wrong, I love Bare Minerals too, but I like the way you can "shave" off what you need by twisting the cap! Beautiful coverage too! Wish I knew that sales associate's name so I could rave about her! Perhaps I will go back! I really like the Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes and the Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation! If you are on the fence, try it!

          I love this powder for light coverage. I can wear a little if i want to look like im not wearing makeup, or apply more for a smoother look. Also, the dial keeps the powder fresh and gives me control over how much the brush picks up. If im looking for full coverage, it makes a great finishing powder

                  I was looking for a bit of coverage for summer, but I didn't want a liquid. This powder was perfect, and it lasted the entire summer! I have warm skin tones, and this powder didn't turn pink or orange on my skin. I also have very (VERY) oily skin, and this didn't change colors when I got shiny later in the day. Actually, it controlled the oil pretty well also, maybe because I used the Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer with it. Very happy with this product!
