Smashbox Halo Perfecting Powder


Smashbox’s Halo Perfecting Powder is said to perfect your perfection and does so with the addition of gold and antioxidants in its formula.  What’s kind of cool is that you twist the top of the compact to freshly grind the powder for you.  I love it because you get the airy feel of a loose powder with the portability of a compact.  You can easily use your kabuki brush to swirl the powder around and then buff it on to your skin.

It wasn’t overly sparkly or glittery on my skin, and I didn’t notice any gold shimmer, but what I did think was that it’s a great powder for those days that you don’t feel like wearing a lot of makeup.  It’s not very pigmented, but it has just enough pigment to kind of even out your skin which is just what I need. I put it on top of sunscreen and it’s absolutely perfect.

It does perfect your skin, and the results last for most of the day, with the powder absorbing any excess oil and impurities that the skin might produce.

I use my own powder brush with this foundation and it just works so well.  I have it in the colour medium, but I could probably use a light/medium too.

All in all, probably one of the best powder/foundation that I’ve ever used and it’s a hard one to beat.

$55 at Sephora, or The Bay.

    I agree totally! I use this on days when I don’t want to wear a foundation, and on work day I use it on top of my tinted moisturizer. I love it! My skin has a subtle glow after a few minutes. I have Smashbox’s Face and Body Brush #19 and it works great with my Halo.

    Great powder-Henna, do you find the colours darker than most?

  4. Henna says:

    Hi Barb, yes, I did find that the medium was a little too dark for me, but on the whole not so much that I can’t get away with it. I think that Smashbox was trying to combat the problem of having the powder be too light.

    Agreed. It lasts a while though and makes your skin look amazing.

    Do you think if you’re normally a light you should order a fair shade. It’s also available at shoppers drug Mart now

    Hi Kathy

    I think it depends on your undertones! The Light has golden undertones and the Fair has neutral ones. I hope that helps!
