I was deliciously surprised about how much I loved this powder. I am quite fair in complexion, so this left no cast on my face. It did, however, make my face feel baby soft. Paired this with my rounded kabuki brush and it was like facegasms. :0
I used this on my wedding day and I loved it. It didn't feel like I had anything on my face. If your not careful though, it will fly everywhere. A little goes a long way!
this powder if you apply to much leaves a white cast this will keep your foundation from being oily. a brush is not the best tool this aplies better with a sponge or powder puffs. to me this is not the awesomest elf product but its all my option.
I LOOK LIKE CASPER
Unfortunately this added a white caste to my olive-medium complexion...it made my skin itch and I don't have sensitive skin, I broke out, I wouldn't recommend it for deeper skin tones ... for paler skin tones it may work wonders though...it helped with photos but I still had an unnatural caste/tint to my skin...trust me I tried several ways of applying this , brush, buffing, stippling, sponging, less/more but in the end after really trying to believe in this I had to let it sit in my drawer ...
PROS : better on paler skin, good for HD pics, lhas lots of product & will last you a while, finely milled
CONS: may not suit a variety of skin tpnes, has a whitish caste, may irritate some acne prone skin or sensitive skin types , extremely messy to use the product; guaranteed it will fall everywhere even when you try and be neat!!
Makes me greasy faster.
I think it's just my skintype, but this powder did not really make a difference in the overall appearance of my face. It made me feel really greasy, so I tried applying less product, but did not work. It also made me more oily than usual. So I don't think it's good for oily skin. Or maybe my skin is just strange.
It's not good for travel as you will get powder everywhere when you open it.
I tend to steer clear of products with a silicone feel, and this one has that smooth silicone feel to it wich does not agree with my skin.
Pulls everything together on the cheap!
I LOVE this powder.
I apply it after foundation, blush, and bronzer and it pulls everything together and makes it look matte and almost airbrushed! It's completely translucent, super fine and goes on really smooth. I apply it with the puff and then blend it out with a fluffy powder blush. Great product! And it's only $3! Def going to repurchase.
I call this my Jesus product. I was looking for an HD powder that was cheaper than the one from Makeup Forever, so I thought I would try this out since it was only $6 at Target. I love love love it. To apply it I dab it on my face with the puff that it came with, and then I blend it out with a powder brush. It doesn't look cakey at all! & It "blurs" imperfections on my face so well. I highly recommend this to everyone.
Great quality and money saver!
This has been a very popular powder for the past year or so in the beauty community on blogs and in YouTube videos, and I can honestly say it's been a very popular powder in my personal beauty routines. I won't jump into it too much, as I'm sure you can find a million reviews on this product by now. I will say that this powder is smooth, translucent, perfect for setting mineral and liquid foundations, doesn't leave a white cast, doesn't reflect light during photography AND it's crazy affordable! At $6.00, you get 8 grams of product, and it lasts for what seems like forever. I've owned mine for a little over a year and it's still got a lot left. It comes with a puff applicator, which I used at first, but since you can't clean it or even buy a replacement from ELF, I just use a powder brush or short handled kabuki brush to apply it now. ELF does sell thinner puff-like pads, but they are a bit too thin for my liking - at least for this product anyways.
I am in Love...
With this powder! Bought it last Friday after reading about it here and all the great reviews. I found it at my local Target for $6 and wore it Saturday morning over my foundation. After a long day out I usually have to blot the oil off my face and apply powder but not after using this. It kept me looking fresh and polished and I could't be happier with it. I did use the puff it came with and really like it. I read on here to pierce some of the holes with a needle to prevent too much powder to come out, did it and works great. So happy I found this before the yucky summer months.
Gives a Flawless Look in Pictures!
Love the price and love the product. I use this with the puff it came with because I have oily skin and I find if I apply my powder (any powder that is) with a puff it keeps my skin matte and buff off any excess with a powder brush. I use this Anytime I go to karaoke cause my friends like to take pictures and I have noticed a huge difference in how they turn out since I started using this.
