E.L.F. is a brand known for it's amazing quality and low cost. So for me, this was a product where brand reputation really 'sold' it to me. I've tried and loved many translucent finishing powders from much better names, like Laura Mercier, which cost upwards towards $40. This was only around $6 and I knew it would be a quality powder, so I would be crazy not to have tried it out.

This product like any other finishing powder, versatile, light, beautifully natural on skin. You can use it to brighten bags under your eyes, highlight the 'T' zone on your face to get this wonderful glow, use it very lightly to minimize oily shine. The list goes on and on. But it tops all other products in the same quality line when it comes to the price tag. I mean, $6 is an unbelievably low price to pay to look prefect.

For that low cost you get quality product, but cheap packaging. I carefully took the powder package apart and tipped all of the powder into a cute small glass jar, and I use a fan make-up brush to apply it very sparingly to areas on my face. If you use too much, you'll walk outside looking very pale (in a very bad way) ...read more

Other than Laura Mercier, this is my go to setting powder, and this one is way more affordable. I have actually already hit pan on this, and I am known for not finishing makeup products ever, so that's how much I use this (and I have a backup on hand). I use this to set my undereyes and it works well and prevents any creasing. It brightens my undereye area without being too yellow. I also use it with a big fluffy brush to set my whole face if I'm using a foundation/concealer that needs a little more help staying put. I am fair-skinned though, so I don't know how this performs on darker skin tones. ...read more

This product is great for under the eye highlight! You can use this all over the face to keep makeup in place, or use on targeted areas for brightening effect. I suggest after applying under the eyes, spray some mac prep and prime, it makes a big difference. Looks amazing in photos! ...read more

I loved Ben Nye and thought it didn't get any better until I purchased this buttercup powder! It's finely milled and has just the right amount of yellow for my skintone. I do recommend this product for deeper skintones. It may have too much yellow for lighter skin tones. I purchased mine from Amazon. I didn't want to buy it directly from the website because I didn't want to wait about a week to purchase it when I could get it the next day. I watched many YT reviews on this and it was worth the try. There's nothing against Ben Nye because I'll still use it but Sacha buttercup gives me off a better color. ...read more

I like this setting powder and it really does help brighten under my eyes. I put a lot on and then sweep off the excess. For the price I think it is good. It does tend to have a lot of fall out though. I also really like the packaging and being able to see what's inside since it is a clear cover. ...read more

If I could give this powder more than 5 stars I would. I use the banana powder normally in the summer when I've got a tan going on. Winter time and fall I use Cameo. These powders are SO legit. They go on so smoothly and completely erase all my fine lines and wrinkles. I feel like a supermodel when I wear my Ben Nye! I gave my 62 yr old mother a makeup one day for fun and she said Nooo don't use powder on me!!! But I reassured her... and she was amazed!! It literally looked so flawless and took years off her face. I like to "bake" my face with these powders. They stay on all day and don't feel too heavy. Buy. This. Now! ...read more
