Do not get what you paid for

Pros

  • Easy To Apply

Cons

  • Doesn't last
  • Poor Coverage

Best Uses

  • Normal Skin

Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

I tried this for three days before I returned it. After a few hours, my face was greasy, the coverage appeared uneven, and it looked like I hadn't washed in a week. This might work well over a tinted moisurizer or additional foundation, but for the money anything would work better for much cheaper.

            I no longer wear foundation thanks to Halo powder and Smashbox photo finish primer. Which is saying something, given that I have been wearing foundation since I was 12. It's wonderful!

                Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

                I've tried a lot of powders and this one doesn't make my dry skin look even drier. I buff my face with it with a big kabuki brush after foundation and I look airbrushed. So incredibly happy with it and even though it's pricey, I will never be without it again. Love the grinder so I'm not wasting powder. That takes a little to get used to but now I know exactly how much to grind.

                I love this powder. It gives me plenty of coverage and looks natural. It is messy, as most mineral powders are but I just put it on a paper towel. I'll never go back to liquid foundation!

                  Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

                  I used to stay loyal to certain brands, but lately I've been venturing out to find more cluck for my buck. This Smashbox concealer hits the mark! I have never used Smashbox products, but was intrigued with the clicking-up to dispense the pressed powder. I have acne-prone/combination skin and wanted something lightweight. I wear it over a BB cream, using a little more on the spots I want more coverage. I can't think of anything not great about it - although it was a little daunting to me at first to kind of "sharpen" to dispense the product, but a small turn will do you!

                    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

                    I use the product in the morning and maybe re apply in the afternoon. This product is very gentle on the skin and over time I've notice the color of my skin balance out and become a bit smoother. I doesn't clog up my pores either. It's easy to use and I like the idea of clean powder on my face with every application. I will say this is not ideal for oily skin. It doesn't cover shine well and it doesn't cover blemishes well.
