    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

    I'm new to the beauty brands and have noticed the best color on me by far is smashbox I use their liquid foundation in 2.0 and like a medium in my powder. I notice I can apply the liquid separately and let it dry and go on about my day but this powder does make a difference immediately when I apply it to my face. The only downfall of this product is I can not see how much powder is left until I run out however I do like how I can apply the perfect amount of powder that I am needing

      I am 65 and I take very good care of my skin. I wanted something light to give me a matte finish. I loved the look and feel of this so much the first time I used it I immediately bought a second one so I could keep it in my purse /gym bag.

          Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

          First off I am usually too lazy to write reviews but I had to make an exception with this product. When it comes to any foundation, concealer, primer etc.. I have found that smashbox is the best for my skin and have been hesitant to buy this product because I don't like shiny skin and I felt like this would add on to my 15 minute make up routine in the morning. I had someone help me try it on at Ulta and I realized that this powder was what I had been missing to get that beautiful airbrushed but natural skin effect. It is also perfect for the winter when the skin is on the dry side because it helps hydrate but not in an overwhelming way. It is on the expensive side but definitely worth the investment.

            I have acne prone skin so I have avoided foundation for a large portion of my life. In the last year I've decided to try some powder foundations and this is by far the best I've tried. I have the Murad acne spot treatment and put that on before I apply the foundation and I have not had any breakouts. And I've been getting so many compliments since using it. It makes my skin look great.

            • Q:

              I have this powder and used it over the Smashbox original primer and each and every time after about 3 hours max it separates on my face and looks all patchy. Why is this? Is it not compatible with that primer and it's having an oil in water effect? Pls let me know and if you have any thoughts or suggestions that would be great.

                A:

                Hi There! Halo Powder should not separate - especially when it's placed over our Photo Finish Foundation Primer. We suggest using our Primer Stick for touch-ups. It can be used under/over makeup and will help control oil for up to 12 Hours.

                A:

                Hi Gorgeous! Choosing a brush depends on the coverage you're looking for. If you want a full coverage look, choose a powder brush with more density and a shorter hair. If you want a sheer coverage look, choose a powder brush with less density and a longer hair.

            • Q:

              I am looking for a setting powder that won't emphasize my dry patches and I was a sort of 'second skin' look. Will this be a good product for me because my ideal foundation is something that is light coverage and looks very natural, as if i'm not wearing anything. Will this work for me? I was also wondering if this works well to set makeup and the under eyes. Does this work well for setting the BB camera ready cream eyes?

                Hi There! Halo powder is a lightweight foundation, so it will look like a 'second skin.' It's also hydrating and shouldn't emphasize dry patches. You can also use it to set your makeup under the eyes. For smoother looking skin we suggest using a foundation primer and an under eye hydrating primer for a flawless look that will last all day.
