    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

    I normally use BareEssentials and have used that for about 7 yrs, so i was a bit skeptical, however, I'll see how cost effective it is since it is more than double the price of BareEssentials. I like the feel of it so, for now, its a keeper.

          I have used Bare Minerals before and this covers better AND is light weight! It stays on without a retouch all day. You can layer this and it doesn't clump on your face. The case is designed to shave off just what you need.

                This powder is the best I have ever experienced in my life and believe me, I have tried them all. It goes over bare skin or any foundation like silk. It makes your skin look beautiful and flawless. Never heavy or cakey. I am 62 but have been blessed with great genetics. My coworkers all thought I was in my 40's and I have to give a lot of credit to Smashbox Halo Perfecting Powder. It's perfect, perfect, perfect!!!

                        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.
