weight

lightweight

my oily areas (nose, cheeks, chin) don't look cakey or greasy at all after a long, hot 8 hour day

- Elfcosmetics User

my favorite elf product, it makes my foundation last all day, even through 90 degree weather, i use it underneath the elf color correcting cream pallet to keep it from sliding off my face and above my foundation, it doesn't make my face look cakey at all, it actually makes my face super soft and flawless looking, and added bonus it hasn't made me break out, i could rave about this product all day

- Elfcosmetics User

staying power

longlasting

it helped my foundation stay put and fresh all day

under eye

good for under eye

i use is as a primer, finisher, under my eyes to erase my bake and alone for a natural matte look

- Elfcosmetics User

i have medium deep skin and i use light/medium to set my undereyes and medium/dark for all over my face

- Elfcosmetics User

blendability

blends well

it went on smooth, is lightweight and blended beautifully

- Walgreens User

pros: smooth, some coverage, easy to blend, does set makeup

- Elfcosmetics User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

it also covers my fine lines (mature skin has lots of fine lines) and covers my dilated pore scars better then any liquid primer and foundation techniques

- Elfcosmetics User

it takes your pores away completely and sets your makeup beautifully

- Ulta User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

so i bought this powder under major skepticism since it's a $2 elf powder and i've had elf powders oxidize on me before

- Elfcosmetics User

and, best of all there's no ashiness that i have experienced with both shades that i own, plus you don't have to worry about this powder oxidizing either

- Elfcosmetics User

texture

smooth

i use it after applying all my make up and it leaves my skin smooth and oil free all day long

- Walgreens User

this powder has a very silky texture, it has great oil control properties, has no smell, goes on like silk, and gives your face an absolutely airbrushed finish

- Elfcosmetics User

brightness

brightening

hands down this powder is so cheap yet so good it blurs my horrible pores and brighten up under eyes its the perfect color match for my skin my skin is oily but this powder tamed my facial oils overall good and cheapest drugstore powder to set face especially under eyes yes i would recommend it to others

- Elfcosmetics User

most of the time my makeup, naturally, seems to wear off as the day goes on, leaving those embarrassing pimples to shine brightly and my highlight/contour long gone

- Walgreens User

flashback

no flashback

it does not make a dark-skinned person look ashy

- Elfcosmetics User

it also does not give that flashback if a picture with flash was taken unlike other setting powders i've tried

- Walgreens User

coverage

low coverage

it's basically sheer/light coverage so this powder works well for setting your foundation or even just using it on a bare face to take away shine

- Elfcosmetics User

light to medium coverage looks natural

Best Powder E.L.F. Offers!

I have a ton of these in the shades Fair/Light (Sheer) and Light/Medium. I know that they don't come with a huge amount of powder, so that's why, i like staying stocked up on them, because they are truly amazing and i definitely don't want to ever run out of them. This powder has a very silky texture, it has great oil control properties, has no smell, goes on like silk, and gives your face an absolutely airbrushed finish. I use E.L.F.'s Mineral Powder brush to apply it with, and it does an excellent job. And, best of all there's no ashiness that i have experienced with both shades that i own, plus you don't have to worry about this powder oxidizing either. No matter what type of skin you have, or shade, i highly recommend giving this powder a try for sure.

Awesome!!!!

This product is long lasting and affordable. It was my shade too. wore it over my foundation and it definitely gave my skin a finished matt photo ready look. Will be buying more of their products for my everyday skincare needs. I wanna mention the free gift that I received which was the baked eyeshadow trio. Beautiful colors ! The colors blended really well and it made my eyes pop. I love love love the eyeshadow shadow. It complimented my skin tone. Pictures below.

Better Then Ordinary TRANSLUCENT Powders!

I bought this many many many months ago when it was first released. I immediately fell in love with it. I could've kicked myself for waiting to order back-ups and then found it gone from the website. Assuming it wasn't coming back. This is by far one of the best translucent powders in the drugstore market. I'm in my mid 40's, have fair/porcelain/ghost white skin, beyond dry T-zone area skin problem with my rest of mu skin semi sensitive but normal and with very nasty dilated pore scars and acne scars from a 8 year battle with Rosecea(sp?) that even shocked my dermatologist. My holy grail summer foundation is this used as a primer powder and the foundation serum. Using this as a PRIMER makes my foundation stick/last longer and makes it just about sweat proof (learned this trick from MUA Wayne Goss). It also covers my fine lines (mature skin has lots of fine lines) and covers my dilated pore scars better then ANY liquid primer and foundation techniques. It even gives me a flawless no make-up make-up look when I use this and a little concealer. No cakey look. When it was brought back, I immediately stocked up. I've even started seeing it in stock at my local Wal-mart. This truly is like miraculous wonder powder and not some basic translucent powder. I hope ELF never retires it, Never! « less

Fell off- not long lasting

So in the summer I have oilier skin then normal and like to use light products so I don't like using a heavy powder. Thought I would try this and put it on. After finishing the rest of my makeup I felt like it oxidized on me and looked somewhat cakey. Then went on my day and after 2 hours I noticed that the powder basically melted off my skin. So no I didn't like this product I felt atleast for 2 dollars it should be worth something and it could've atleast looked nice on the skin.
