REVIEW: Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder Brush Set

Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder Brush Set
Product 411:
  • a face perfecting mineral powder and brush duo
  • comes in 4 shades: fair, light, medium, and dark
  • contains Gogi berry - a powerful antioxidant
  • formula contains gold, 48 minerals, 11 amino acids, and powerful peptide
  • made for all skin types
  • oil/talc/paraben free
  • contains anti-aging formula
  • hydrates skin all day
  • lightweight on skin
  • decreases the appearance of wrinkles
  • "built-in shaver" design makes the product easier to dispense thus less messy
  • brush that came with it could be better - it's kinda scratchy on skin
  • sheer coverage - i suggest using a liquid foundation/concealer underneath for better coverage (unless you have naturally flawless skin)
  • expensive
  • not sure if safe for acne-prone skin
VERDICT: This product replaced my MAC Mineralize loose foundation. I've been using it for almost a month now and im lovin it! I specifically like the idea of grinding my own foundation. Makes it easier for me to carry it around + more sanitary + less product wasted. The design is truly a winner. Good job, Smashbox! I also like that it doesn't feel heavy on my skin. i still see wrinkles visible on pictures up close, but I am not expecting a miracle. I'll still continue to use it and hopefully my wrinkles decrease in time.
