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.

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 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.

A word to the wise: don’t use the scratchy kabuki brush that comes with it for free – instead get your own powder brush and fluff it on, or for more coverage, use a foundation brush.

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

    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?

    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.
