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.

I wear this powder every day. It leaves the nicest finish on my skin and never looks cakey. I've repurchased three times in the last year, because it is so great!

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 :)

Just Picked it up today

I use to hate powders but I guess I can try them again and I've heard good stuff about this product in videos I watch on youtube , I'm not much of a makeup person but I don't mind trying new things to make my self pretty here and there

I love this powder. I use it over top of my ELF Flawless Finish Foundation to set it and it helps my face look less oily/dewy. It doesn't look chalky or cakey. I don't like the sponge that comes with it though, I use a brush instead. But overall, I like this powder

I really like this product. I use it for setting my foundation as well as setting my under eye concealer for days when I'm not wearing foundation. It doesn't come show up cakey and works great to reduce shine. I carry it with me for touch ups throughout the day.

love it

I use this for setting my foundation and love it! It goes on evenly, and doesnt look chalky or anything.

I dont really like the sponge so I dont use it. I wish the powder covered the entire pan, like the complexion perfection.

Nice for the price and good for everyday wear.. I use this over my bb cream for a nice matte finish. May have to re apply and won't be good for darker skin tones as it may show up a bit chalky looking.. Oh and if u have drier skin may want to go with the Elf hi def powder

Gets Rid of Shine!

I have oily skin that no matter what I do gets shine half way threw the day. I love this compact because I can just throw it in my purse and go! It doesn't keep the oil from coming back but I can live with that.
