    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder:

    I have used Smashbox' HALO for some time ...but it has dreadful yellow undertones. I saw this NYX product in the same container on a BOGO so I decided to give it a go. And I love this stuff. It delivers the exact amount of coverage I want AND the colour is much more realistic than HALO. Very happily surprised with this, I shall be buying more!

      Have used Smashbox's Halo powder for years, but the price is a killer. This is by far the best lower price dupe that I have found...

      I wasn't sure about this product since I typically use much more expensive brand covers but I was amazed at the great coverage! It's dispenser is unique and that is a nice feature! Luv it!

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder:

            Was looking for a new powder that would keep me matte throughout the work day with little to no touch-ups. I had tried Nyx's Stay Matte but Not Flat & really liked it, but hated how fast you would go through the powder. I liked the idea of the grinder with this powder, but that was about it. I couldn't make it past lunch without my face getting oily. If this product was more matte & had better coverage, I would definitely try it again.

              Absolutely love the way you have to twist this to get the powder out- not messy and doesn't get everywhere so it is not wasted!

                Love this powder, especially when traveling. There's no mess because you only grind a little at a time. It has nice coverage and doesn't leave me looking shiny like some mineral foundations seem to do. I live in Florida and it seems to stand up well against the humid climate.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder:

                  I used this product because of all the great reviews ,but I was not impressed by it at all. When used alone the powder had poor coverage and only lasted a couple of hours before I had to reapply. I bought thinking it would be a great alternative to Smashbox's halo ,but honestly next time I'd rather spend the money on the expensive name brand and know it works then waste my time on a cheap knock off. On the upside it works great as a settling powder and the minerals in the powder are great so you don have to worry about the powder breaking you out.
