              I love the pressed to loose powder idea! That's the main reason I bought it. But I ended up returning it. It seemed heavier than I wanted and made my combination skin very greasy. So sad.

                  I currently use Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream, and am looking for a powder to help set it. How closely do the colors in the Halo match the BB cream? I wear light/neutral in the BB.

                    We'd suggest the Light/Neutral in the Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, as well! The shades are designed to correspond between the products. Enjoy! :-)

                • Q:

                  I've been wanting to try the smashbox powder and foundation and I was wondering which shade would be closest to my skin tone. I'm currently using Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Santa Fe.

                • Q:

                  Can I use this product as a setting powder for a foundation or BB cream, or is it more of a foundation itself?

                  I am looking for something hydrating to set foundation for my dry skin that adds a small amount of coverage, but I don't want to have essentially two layers of foundation looking heavy on the face (like using BareMinerals medium-full coverage powder over a medium-full cover liquid).

                    A:

                    Smashbox does not use the claim non-comedogenic on any of their products. Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder is non-acnegenic, meaning it has been clinically tested by a board certified dermatologist and determined that it does not increase acne lesions on acne-prone patients.
