Smashbox have launched quite a few new products in the last couple of weeks, and the new Smashbox Halo Glow Highlighter Duo is another. If you like a pretty highlighter, these duos look so pretty, and they’ve just launched at Ulta. If you’d like to know more about these new highlighter duos, keep on reading.
Smashbox Halo Glow Highlighter Duo
The Smashbox Halo Glow Highlighter Duo is a versatile highlighter duo with two highlighter shades, with two different textures and finishes allowing you to create a custom glow.
With a radiant putty offering a subtle luminosity, whilst the silky powder gleams with an intense pearl shimmer. Both sides of the product have a velvety and blendable formula, which go onto the skin without emphasising skin texture.

The Smashbox Halo Glow Highlighter Duo is quite unique, as it features two complementary tones of highlighter but in two different formulas. One side of the pan features a powder highlighter, and the other is a putty highlighter.
Smashbox have created a genius plastic lid that protects the putty formula from getting any powder fall out into it, and it helps to keep them separate. The Smashbox Halo Glow Highlighter Duo has been created so you can use either highlighter individually, or layer them for a super intense glow.
The Smashbox Halo Glow Highlighter Duo is available in two shades; Golden Bronze and Golden Pearl, and each duo retails for $35. That price feels kinda high as you’re not getting a lot of product for your money, and the packaging is cardboard.
For $35 you’d expect at least a proper, plastic compact but instead it’s a magnetised cardboard compact. The two duos do look very pretty, but I feel like you could pay an extra $10-$15 dollars and purchase a whole highlighter palette for the price of just one of these duos.
