My Favorite Powder!
I bought this powder months ago because I was curious about it. I was placing an order online and was getting it for half off so why not try it! Well, I love it! It's affordable and I love the packaging! I'm on my second one already. =) I really love this powder! I use this powder to set my foundation. Blends very well and it really does make my face matte and takes away any shine that I don't want. I however don't use the sponge applicator it comes with. I use my powder brush or blending brush to apply this. I do use the sponge when I am on the go whenever I feel like I need to touch up though. But then again I am not super oily so I don't need much touching up. The sponge applicator isn't bad either. This product last long and goes on very smoothly without looking chalky!
Cons - May not be good for those who have extremely dry skin because it can accentuate dry flaky skin. May not work for all skin tones.
My go-to blot powder!
The ELF Studio Translucent Matifying Powder has been my go-to blot powder for over a year now. I've repurchased this twice already, and even bought an extra for my professional kit. I love that this powder is translucent because it never adds more coverage than I need, which means when I'm touching up my makeup, it won't make my face look cakey. I don't use the sponge applicator that it comes with because I don't find it works very well on me. I tend to use either a puff applicator or a tiny kabuki brush to dust my skin when I need to reduce some shine. The packaging is very sleek and the large mirror inside is very useful. I would recommend this to everyone because we all could use a little matifying sometime in our day. I've also used this on BF in the past when we take photos, men don't care if they are shiny, but if we're taking a nice photo, I want him to look fresh too :)
