          DISCLAIMER: I have combination/normal skin that sometimes gets oily.
          I really love this set, I bought it for summer use so that I would have something light to have on my skin, and fell in love! the bb alone evens my skin tone without looking unnatural, though it can get greasy if left without the powder after a few hours. When I use all three together, I get fantastic coverage that looks amazing on camera. For flights, I throw this in my carryon bag and put apply it mid-flight (normally just the bb or primer with powder). I cannot say enough about it! I think the bb would be best for someone with dryer skin than mine, and the powder alone for someone with oily skin.

            I bought the sample to see if it did what it said and worked well. It does so I will buy the full size when this runs out. My only complaint is the smell of the BB Cream, not awful but not great.

              I love this set! I don't wear make up a ton, but the coverage is absolutely perfect. It doesn't look overdone, but still covers and blends amazingly.

              Hands down, my favorite foundation kit!

                          PERFECTS: Tinted formula evens out skin for a flawless finish..
                          HYDRATES: Improves skin moisture in 4 weeks. Guaranteed..
                          PROTECTS: SPF 35 guards against UVA/UVB rays.
                          CONTROLS OIL: Minimizes shine with no chalky finish.

                          We recommend testing the BB Cream and Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder at your nearest ULTA store to find the best match: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                          These products are suitable for all skin types including sensitive, acne prone skin. For those with rosacea, we recommend spot testing the products on an inconspicuous area of your skin to ensure you experience no irritation before applying as directed.
