Product Review-Makeup: Smashbox Halo Powder – The Face Perfecting Powder for Selfie Addicts

But first, let me take a #selfie…

I’m guilty. I must confess, I filter almost all of my selfies. I usually use filters because the lighting is odd, but 90% of the time I filter my selfies because my skin looks weird to me. I’m always oily, shiny, dry or a combination for all three. I’ve used so many powders and primers, but not all of them last all day. Most recently I used Smashbox Halo powder and I love it!!

Here are the details for Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder $49

smashbox HALO Hydrating Perfecting Powder darkWhat it is:
A luminous powder that gives a lit-from-within glow.

What it does:
This skin-perfecting powder creates a radiant, healthy complexion with patented hydration technology. It is the first antiaging powder with the science of skincare built in, using an advanced formulation of pure gold, 48 minerals, 11 amino acids, and a powerful peptide to deliver antiaging benefits. The patented hydration system continuously revitalizes skin and provides a hydration that won’t accentuate lines and wrinkles. The built-in shaver allows for the convenience of a pressed powder combined with the radiant finish of a loose powder for a sophisticated, blended, look that is never over-powdered or cakey.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
This powder is suitable for all skin types and is free of oil and talc.

Here is why I love it:
Product effectiveness-
This powder absorbs shine and oil. It does not make dry areas look drier and lasts pretty much all day. My skin looks incredible in pictures, and it does an excellent job setting foundation and concealer. For example, my allergies launched a massive attack on my eyes; itching, burning, watering, the works. Fortunately I already set my makeup with the halo powder, and my concealer did not budge!

I always love simplistic, iconic packaging and Smashbox always delivers this. The one thing I really love about this package is that there is a grinder inside. That way you can get an exact amount of powder, and not waste anything. The compact is also durable. I’ve dropped it twice already and it’s still in perfect condition.

I give this powder 5 blings. It’s nothing short of perfect. I look airbrushed and flawless while wearing this powder and my selfies are always amazing. Plus the  color match for my deep skin is spot-on —  I used “Dark.”
