    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting 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!

              Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

              I used this along with Smashbox's foundation. Together both products did nothing for my skin type. The powder would clump onto the dry patches on my skin and highlight my problem areas rather than diminishing them.
              If you have normal skin this may work for you, but it does not work well with dry skin

              The powder can settle a bit on your face if you don't prime correctly, but if it's not for everyday wear it's fine. I like that it has a twist thing that lets you only release a little powder at a time. Great for traveleling that way! Overall a good powder

                    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.

                  Hi, I have light medium skin with pink undertones. Out of the shades light, light neutral, light/medium, and medium, which one has the most pink undertones? 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.
