    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder:

    This product while it did set my under eye concealer was very drying and not hydrating as stated. I applied this after moisturizing my under eye area & using a stippling brush and even a damp beauty blunder and it still caked I guess my wyest of finding an illuminating setting powder continues.

          This powder gives a nice smooth finish and keeps your makeup where it belongs, on your face, not rubbing off onto your clothes. I usually look for any bargain, and this is no bargain, but it works so well that I buy it anyway. It's well worth the price.

              • Q:

                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.
