Smashbox Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder

Oh Smashbox Halo Glow how do I love thee. Let me count the ways.

Seriously, my love for this product knows no end and with that in mind let me introduce you to the most amazing bronzer... ever

It is no secret that Snow White ain't got nothin' on my milky whiteness. It is true that when I am au naturale my skin is as white as snow. So, what is a pale girl like me to do?
Options Include:
A. Color inside the lines with permanent marker
B. Slather myself in butter and bake in a tanning bed
C. Use self tanner in day-glo orange
D. Use bronzer as part of a well balanced makeup routine

So I think D is clearly the winner here folks. Only problem (and I am sure I am not the only one) is to find a bronzer that doesn't turn me into an orange or a discoball. The oompa loompa look just isn't cute

Fortunately, trial and error and lots of experimentation has led me to the ultimate bronzer:

Say Hello to my little friend, isn't she cute?











Available only on QVC for the time being (item A87107), Smashbox's newest product in the Halo series is an amazing allover face powder designed to moisturize, enhance, sculpt, and glow. Gone is my need for bronzer, blush, and highlight powder as this product does all that for me and then some.


























Like the original Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Face Powder, this bronzer comes housed in a sleek but sturdy black compact of pressed powder that you "shave" off by rotating the top of the lip as needed.



























I apply this to my cheekbones, under the jawline, and on my temple as I would any other bronzer. Immediately after application my skin is glowing and radiant, moisturized and healthy looking. With the baby buki included, application is goof proof. The results last all day without fading, caking, or pilling. The look is all natural and flawless.


































All in all, I highly recommend this bronzer for all you ladies looking for that natural sunkissed glow. What are you all waiting for, try it and see for yourselves ;)

Haha, I think you definitely might need this. I would love your thoughts on this if you do get it since I am not sure how this would look on a darker skintone. I would imagine it would be lovely.

Try out the regular halo and if you like the finish then go for this one for sure ;)

I really need to try this! Every bronzer I use turns me orange. I'm NW15. My high school nickname was Snow White.

Jessica, I hear ya! I am also a NW15 (since I have apparently become paler!)

Do let me know if you try this ;)
