I wouldn't buy this product again EVER!

By Petra

Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

After using this product for a little over a week, I was unimpressed, but thought I may grow to like it. After over a month I can't stand it, it doesn't give me good coverage at all, I use it just like the rep said with products used to go with it but it still didn't work for me. I have pretty normal skin just some freckles and this product seemed to hide my freckles but not any blemish that would appear. It also made me look like I had bags under my eyes when I didn't.

    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

    This product is great for me. I am pale and have red/blue undertones and the "light" shade works perfectly to help even out my tone.

      I use this product every day and it lasts quite a long time!! I have dry fair skin. This product doesn't irritate or cause breakouts. It feels like your not even wearing makeup but makes your skin look perfect! To me it's totally worth the money :)

        I used this to set my foundation (Smashbox Studio Skin), I couldn't believe all the compliments I got when I went out that night. Also, when I looked back at the pictures my skin looked FLAWLESS. No filters necessary, I looked like a porcelain doll.

            I love this stuff. I received it as a sample and fell in love with how it goes on very easily and covers the spots I want covered. I have had a lot of compliments since using this. Its a bit pricey but what I have will last for a long time and to me is well worth it.

              I currently use philosophy foundation and
              Minerals powder. I would like longer coverage. I also have a tendancy to get red in my cheeks mid afternoon sometimes causing a burning sensation. Would this powder be similar to minerals.

                This product is similar to minerals and features a luminous talc-free formula that can be worn alone or over foundation as a finishing powder.

                Halo applies to sheerly that either Light/Medium or Medium may work well for you. We recommend testing both shades at your nearest ULTA store to determine your best match:
