Birchbox Breakdown

This longwearing foundation combines the best of both pressed and loose setting powders to deliver sheer to medium buildable coverage with a soft, satin finish. The lightweight formula is infused with a Mineral Boost Complex, amino acids, peptides, and minerals that give skin a filter effect and impart a halo-like radiance while also controlling shine. In fact, over 90% of women surveyed said that it enhanced their luminosity while smoothing the texture and look of skin. And so you never have to worry about looking too cakey, the built-in Powderizer allows you to freshly grind the perfect amount for each application—no mess.

Perfect Coverage

I was hesitant to try a powder (as opposed to a liquid foundation) because I'm middle-aged and have dry skin. I hate when powder settles into my lines... ugh. But this product was well-reviewed and I had some points so I thought I'd give it a try.

SO happy I did! It's my new go-to makeup. For just running to the market on a weekend, I swipe on a light veil to even out my middle-aged complexion. For work I use it after moisturizer and primer, and I get a beautiful non-cakey coverage that lasts all day. And for a (rare!) big event, I use it over foundation/blush, as a setting powder. I love it.

Also, the dispenser mechanism actually does what it says. Love. Worth the $$.

Best powder there is

I've used a lot of face powders over the years from drugstore to high end. Nothing compares to Smashbox Halo! I'm on my 2nd compact and will never use anything else again . I have wrinkles at 42 and combination skin. This is the only product that doesn't settle in my lines and doesn't cake or crease. Can't say enough

I love this stuff! I am of a certain genetic composition that lends itself to some unholy forehead wrinkles, but like many, I like powder. Usually, it settles into those forehead lines, making a little wrinkle more like a "crevasse". Not Halo! It's lovely, the texture is nice on my skin, lasts forever, and doesn't enhance those lines!

Great Powder

I love this powder. I used on top of my primer foundation and it gives me that photo finish with out looking like I caked on the make up. Great coverage and didn't make my skin itch like some powders do.

Finishing powder

Absolutely love this product! Really gives the skin a natural photofinish look without being able to really tell you have any makeup on in the first place. Also has a really nice soft lightweight feeling so your skin doesn't feel weighed down with tons of powder on it. Love it use it everyday !
