I recently purchased the Halo Illuminating powder and immediately fell in love with it, so I bought this one as well. As someone who has tried dozens of powders and is very picky, I was a little skeptical before I tried it, even though I've heard such rave reviews. I absolutely love it! It makes my skin look smooth and radiant, and evens out my skin tone. It does go on pretty heavily, so use a light hand while applying. I highly recommend using Smashbox's brush 29, which is a fluffy brush that won't pack the powder on your face. This powder would be good as a finishing powder and/or a touch-up powder. My only complaint is that it isn't very long-lasting on me. I love the twist-to-shave technology of the Halo powders and will definitely continue to purchase them.

The actual powder is great. For how lightweight it is, I am always amazed at how well it evens out my blotchy skin and tones down redness-- not enough coverage to hide my permanent dark undereye circles, though. And it lasts a long time because just a little bit goes a long way.
HOWEVER. The brush that comes with is poor quality, the bristles fall out all over your face and it's best to just scrap it for a better kabuki brush. I would rather pay less for the product and not have the brush included. While I like the twist-up packaging, it's totally opaque so it's impossible to tell how much powder is left. Also, at some point I dropped it on the bathroom floor and now the lid won't close anymore, so I can't throw it in my bag without powder getting everywhere. But really, the biggest drawback for me is the PRICE... ouch.

Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, Light, .75 oz:

I SO wanted this product to work. I had such high hopes for it. I read a lot of great reviews, and I was willing to pay the high price if it worked like it said it would. Unfortuneatly, it's no better than Bare Minerals for me- and might even be worse.
I was an avid fan of BM for years, but lately- since hitting 35, I noticed that it made me look older- my skin always looked dry with it on and it seemed to settle into fine lines, and my HUGE pores and acne scars.
I switched to a cream foundation, but then read about this. It sounded like the answer to my problems- a powder foundation made for more mature skin.
However, after trying it, it did exactly the same thing as BM. Settled right into my pores, provided very little coverage of my acne scars, basically accentuated all my problems and didn't give the "glow" I kept hearing about. In fact, my skin looked dry and sickly- and I really don't have dry skin to begin with.
Not to mention the color choices are terrible- the light was too light and ghostly for me and the medium too dark.
At least with Bare Minerals I found a color that matched my skin tone perfectly and didn't look bizzare on me.
Bottom line- I am returning it. The cheap little cream foundation I bought at the drugstore works much better in my opinion. For a fraction of the price no less.
Bear in mind I have horrible skin- pores the size of craters, red patches- far from flawless.
I was just hoping for a miracle from this product and it sadly did not deliver.

    Comments about Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, Light, .75 oz:

    I like the ease of applying mineral powder makeup but previous brands looked too powdery on my mature skin. HALO makes my skin look luminous and feel soft. It lasts all day. It is a little pricey but I don't use much so it should last. The end result is worth the cost!

    I think it's a little heavy going on, but it may just be the brush. I'm using the small brush it came with - I should probably switch to a bigger one. I LOVE the container and how you can click it to get the right amount of powder you need instead of a loose mess like other powders.

          I have completely gave up on mineral make-up. I tried this thinking it would be hydrateing, but it was not. I want my skin to glow and powders just don't do it for me.
