      Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

      I've been using this powder for multiple years now. Lately, I've noticed that it doesn't last as long as it used to. There is also no indication of when you will run out. My last container, I barely had enough to cover my face. The time before last, I had no reason to believe that I would run out anytime soon. It comes as a complete surprise. I only use this once, maybe twice a week because I go bare-faced most of the time and it only lasted 8 months. I would understand if I used it daily, but i don't. I feel like it should last for longer since I only use it 8-10 times a month. I don't cake it on either because I like to put it on lightly. Ive grown used to this product and I like how it goes on smoothly and not heavy like other brands. It covers what I need it to (with the help of some concealer of course) and feels lightweight on my skin. Sometimes it doesn't even feel like i have anything on. I'd just like it a bit more if there were some type of indicator on there that would provide insight as to how much product is left in the container so that you can plan when to purchase a new one.

                          Hi There! We don't have a shade like Banana, but we do recommend Light for similar purposes. We use it for baking and highlighting. The Halo Perfecting Powders are awesome because they also hydrate the skin leaving you with a unique finish.

I am less concerned with how light or dark it is against my skin and more concerned with matching my it to my pink undertone. Please advise me on which shades/or shades have pink undertones. Difficult to tell through pictures.
