Most Helpful Positive Review Glowing Skin
I really liked this new Smashbox "Halo Tinted Moisturizer". I received the shade "Light Medium" and was kind of scared because it looked almost to dark and orange for me. I'm usually light but since it's the summer got somewhat of a tan, nothing crazy. Product was easy to squeeze out just the right amount that you would want to use. Seemed thick at first but as I applied with my fingers it blended into my skin nicely and the color buffed right into my skin with out looking to dark or orange. The best part is the "glow" it gives your skin!!! Really impressed with the glow factor! The only thing I felt I had a problem with was the application. I had to go in with a beauty blender sprayed with setting spray because after using my fingers it left like streak marks. I didn't mind going over it and setting it with the beauty blender. I felt I got a light, natural coverage ..which is what I prefer with the glow factor of course! Definitely felt nice and hydrated on my skin and didn't cause any breakouts throughout the day and taking off at night. I could see how they say it's primer infused because it does act like a primer in blurring imperfections and pores. You definitely can build up the coverage I feel. This tinted moisturizer give my healthy looking glowing skin and I would recommend it if u are looking for something not to heavy and natural looking plus quick and easy to apply. It did last all day. It did however transfer on to the inside of my mask 😷 I like that it has Hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide and gold & peptides in it too!!Plus it's vegan, cruelty-free and has SPF 25! I did receive this complementary to try from Influenster for my honest review. #complementary #influencer @smashboxcosmetics #haloskin ￼￼￼
Most Helpful Critical Review Great coverage, but emphasizes textured skin
I want to preface this by saying that I have dry skin and have a full skincare routine that includes exfoliation, and moisturizing is a huge part of my routine as well. Generally speaking, foundations I own don't emphasize my textured areas.
I exfoliated and moisturized my skin for this tinted moisturizer. It goes on very nice, not too liquid and not too sheer. I absolutely love how it dries down to feel skin like. You can't even tell it's there! This is great for wearing under a mask, as it is essentially transfer proof.
The coverage is more than that of most other tinted moisturizers, say, Laura Mercier's. However, I'm sad to say it emphasizes my textured skin. It gathered around areas of my nose, mouth, and eyebrows. Areas I didn't realize were textured. I don't have perfect skin by any means, and it's quite dry year round. This tinted moisturizer seemed to make my skin drier than usual after I washed it off at night, though.
Maybe if you have oilier skin it would be a great fit for you, but for my dry skin, it unfortunately doesn't work.

This is by far the best tinted moisturizer for dry skin! It's super blendable and has amazing coverage. It is perfect for everyday. Would love to see a better shade range but overall amazing
Smashbox Halo Healthy Glow.
haleywork from Mansfield, OH
This product blended out really nicely but as far as I'm concerned, I found this too thick and a little cakey for being claimed as a "tinted moisturizer." I feel a lot of these tinted moisturizers coming out are just light coverage foundations. The color was also a little orange. Just not really for me.
good but won't repurchase
kaseyr5 from San Tan Vly, AZ
Decent for a tinted moisturizer but not worth the price in my opinion. This does leave the skin looking fresh, pretty and glowy but there are products that work very similarly that cost half of what this costs.
Best I ever used
Patricia from New Mexico
This product I recommend last all day very happy
Love this tinted moisturizer
alexandriak15 from West Warwick, RI
This is my current favorite tinted moisturizer! Gives great sheer buildable coverage to even out my skintone and melts nicely into the skin so it's never splotchy or streaky. It stays in place all day long and just makes my skin overall even, luminous and healthy looking
Burns eyes - octinoxate
Melissa H from MA
I love this product so much but the octinoxate burns my eyes like you wouldn't believe. Even if I avoid my eye area and use concealer it ends up bleeding in my eyes after about an hour or two. Please take octinoxate out of the formula, there's already great mineral filters in it there's no need for chemical sunscreens that a lot of people are allergic to. So sad I can't use this.
New go to!
Sid from California
I have dry skin with diffuse redness and this worked really well for covering the red without being super heavy. The product is super light and almost watery but still gives good/natural coverage for a tinted moisturizer. It is VERY dewy so it may not work well for oily skin types but it works for my dry skin. Does transfer a bit but I want to play around with different ways to set it
I would not buy this product
Boymom from Idaho
I recently purchased this product and was so excited to use it! I have used it for two days now and it has my face so dry I have dry patches on my face I am NOT getting the glowing look at all!
Michigan Mom from Michigan
Michigan winters leave a girl very pale! I don't wear foundation, but wanted something light with a hint of color. Halo is perfect. It's not heavy, goes on smooth, and gives a nice hint of color that looks natural.
i am really happy
rosennyr from Brooklyn, NY
i am really happy with this product. it is a little too dark for use as a base so i use it as a bronzer and it is stunning!
BRING BACK BB Cream!
Kate from Virginia Beach
I purchased this after learning the camera ready bb cream I'd been using for years was discontinued. The shades are not the same and it looked cakeyand orange.
Nice coverage. Dewy look
Becki from Atlanta, GA
Nice coverage. Covers more than typical tinted moisturizer . Closer to Liquid foundation than most tinted moisturizers. Quick to apply. Easy to blend. Great everyday skincare. Doesn't feel heavy
This is a great
gabbss_nicole from Lees Summit, MO
This is a great product. It goes on kind of thick but leaves a glowy dewy finish on my skin. I think it looks very natural. I will buy again!
During 2020 because I
tracys3be5 from Wilson, NC
During 2020 because I wasn't going out very often I decided to start using a lighter foundation. Smashbox halo provided a very light coverage but gave me a healthy glow. I've enjoyed it so much I continue to use it. I highly recommend this product!! ￼
Tinted Med Tan
Make-up Maven from NY
Very light coverage. Nothing special. Color Med tab was too gold. Would not buy again.
I am not sure right now. I have only used it three times
PJ from Sarasota, Fl
Use it after my bath in the am Refresh if going out at night.
I love this product.
mabijalit from San Diego, CA
I love this product. It goes on a bit thick so I have to make sure to blend it into my skin but it leaves a beautiful dewy finish. I was used to using the Beautycounter Tinted moisturizer and this is comparable with a bit more coverage. Not scented.
simplymisstonya from Colorado
I was so disappointed when Urban Decay discontinued their Naked Skin One and Done Hybrid Complextion Perfector. I used it for years and I had to find something very similar. I tried so so many different types of skin tints and light coverage products. I do not like heavy fully coverage products. I prefer light and airy with a natural look. I am soooooo happy I found Smashbox Halo. This is about as close as it gets to what I was using before. It's light and wears well all day long. My skin feels naked and I don't break out. The color match is also perfect! I found my next product to use for years....hopefully!!
krutip4 from Fayetteville, NC
Very light weight with medium coverage. If you want full coverage it takes a lot of product. For everyday use it's great
Really like it!
audreyd42 from Kansas City, MO
I really like this product! I feel like it has more coverage that other tinted moisturizers. I have dry skin in the winter and haven't had an issue with this showing my dry skin. It does have a subtle dewy finish which I like! I recommend for a lighter make up day
rubzz404 from Chicago, IL
I rarely ever use a bb cream or tinted moisturizer, but after receiving this from Influenster complementary, I've been sold. This makes my skin look like better skin. I have recommended and will definitely repurchase when I run out.
Good for no makeup days
M < 3 from El Segundo
This is so good for both oily and dry skin types. I have combination skin and put powder over my t zone and it looked so good and flawless. I didn't get much transfer onto my face mask. This tinted moisturizer looks so beautiful with highlight as well. Definitely recommend purchasing it and will purchase again when I run out 10/10.
Perfect for everyday !
Mayra from Los Angeles, Ca
I Iove this for everyday use ! It has good coverage and it's lightweight, so it feels like I don't have anything on.
I do have dry skin and it doesn't dry out my skin or emphasize texture.
Min from New England
I use this product as my daily foundation. Because it is also a moisturizer, I eliminate my final daily moisturizer. When applying the "light" shade to my fair skin, it appears a bit yellowy, but I blend it out and continue with the rest of my cosmetics and it seems to blend right in. I like the light coverage vs the older product Smashbox Photo Finish.
Jenn from Florida
This product give you a naturally flawless finish
