I'm not exactly sure why this category came up as "foundation". The product I'm reviewing is Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Poweder in Light. Anyway, this is from the website first. I'm printing this as part of the review because this is a unique product in many ways and the description is worth sharing:

I do agree that this powder is different, but I really don't need a poweder to do anything accept keep my foundation and m/u application in place.

A powder that reduces fine lines & wrinkles in 10 minutes? It's not magic, it's new HALO HYDRATING PERFECTING POWDER. HALO is the first anti-aging powder with the science of skin care built in. It's advanced formulation of pure gold, 48 minerals, 11 amino acids and a powerful peptide deliver powerful anti-aging benefits while the patented hydration system continuously revitalizes skin for a brighter, more radiant complexion all day.

Okay, this I will agree with! The shaver is genious for sure. I feel like each time I use this (daily right now) that I'm getting a nice, fresh dose of powder that I can actually control and keep the compact nice and clean in the process. THIS makes me happy. It just seems hygenic and neat.

HALO’s innovative built in shaver gives you the perfect amount of luminous loose powder every time with no mess. Finally, a powder that multi-tasks as much as you do.

Other info that (IMO) I have no way of tracking, as I already use an anti-wrinkle product as part of my skin care regimen....

Clinical studies show:
-After 10 minutes there is a 33% decrease in the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes.
-After 6 weeks of use, there is a 67% decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles overall.
-Includes a custom KABUKI BRUSH for flawless application. Oil-free, Talc-free, and Paraben-free. Winner of the HBA Award for Best Prestige Packaging. .75 oz size - compare to the leading mineral makeup brands and save.

At $60.00 is SHOULD do all of this. I was very fortunate to be gifted with this product and am happy to have it as my budget would not allow for such an expensive powder. I'm looking forward to using this come winter when my skin is drier and can use the add'l benefits that the website claims.
