Coming Soon: Smashbox Halo Hydrating Eye Shadow w/ Brushes 3 & 10

August 16, 2009

Launching soon at QVC is Smashbox’s Halo Eyeshadow Hydrating Eye Shadow w/Brushes 3 & 10 (with an advance order price of $39.54, a regular QVC price of $46, and a retail value of $91). Thanks to reader Jen for turning me onto this very cool new product!

Smashbox introduces Halo Hydrating Eye Shadow Duos. These innovative shadows are perfectly coordinated & wearable duos include a base& lid shade to create beautiful, natural eye looks effortlessly. Choose: SOFT PEACH/COCOA (soft/warm brown) PEWTER/SMOKE (platinum/deep slate), BISQUE/ALMOND (warm beige/soft nude) PETAL/PLUM (soft pink/heather). Receive:(1)HALO HYDRATING PERFECTING DUO, .15 oz., BLENDING BRUSH #3, CREASE BRUSH #10.

These shadows are a spin on Smashbox’s Halo Hydrating face powder which in turn is similar to the YSL Semi-Loose Powder that I own (see how the shaver works in my review HERE). I’m loving that Smashbox has decided to extend this concept to eyeshadows, but my two concerns are (1) that it may be pretty messy/cumbersome to use, and (2) that the colors will be really sheer. None of the shades are really calling my name either as they’re all pretty basic/boring, but if I were to go with anything I’d choose petal/plum I think, although the pewter/smoke sounds nice too.

Are you a fan of Smashbox’s Halo Hydrating powder? Excited for these?
