    I have used other powders before and the packaging is awkward - the way it dispenses from the container is messy and wasteful - this is the best designed ever.

        This product is amazing, and helps finish cover up the flaws that foundation and cover up left behind. Makes your skin look flawless but not fake. I used a sponge to apply.

        Great for oily/acne prone skin

        By Kat

        from Houston, Tx

        Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

        I have used this stuff for years and it is great! I have very oily and sensitive skin and it has a nice, natural matte finish that lasts throughout the day. I recently switched over to Tarte's Airbrush Powder foundation though because I'm transitioning all of my beauty and health products to cruelty free ones. If it wasn't for that, I'd still be using this, but it's still a great product!

              Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

              I do not remember EVER getting excited about powder...until the day I happened upon this at Ulta. First: The packaging. I love that it has a tab to actually snap the powder closed. I also love the silver plate thing that shaves off just the right amount of fresh powder for your face. This powder is not messy. With three kids and a job, many days I apply this powder at 630 am, and when I finally get home in the evening, my powder is still flawless.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.
