Rapid Dark Circle Repair eye cream by Neutrogena is a great product. It was different than other products I have tried in the past because it was specifically targeting one problem area of the eyes. It was easy to apply, I was able to use it under my everyday makeup and I saw results within a week! The dark circles faded and my eyes looked brighter. The product kept that very sensitive area under the eyes well moisturized without feeling greasy or sticky. Neutrogena is a brand I have trusted for years and I would recommend this product to anyone with this problem. I received this product free from Crowdtap and Neutrogena to try. All opinions are 100% my own. Rapid Dark Circle Repair eye cream by Neutrogena is a great product.

I feel like this works better than Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder , especially under the eyes. It does mattify your look , so probably avoid using with a dewy foundation. I think it does well for the price, but it's no magic wand. I don't know if it gives my skin that soft focus finished look that I was really hoping for (but neither did the Airspun). However, it does set down your makeup so you can put powders on top without sucking the life out of your skin. And I think it does help keep creasing at bay somewhat ( although it's not perfect at that either ). The thing is, with powder price is so important because you swipe half of it away so I'm willing to make compromises for price in this arena. Feels like a waste of money to use a more expensive one, so I think this one does the job enough that I would repurchase.

Review for: Soft Luminance more...
I’ve tried a lot of different setting powders and this is my favorite one. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I usually wouldn’t get a setting powder if it wasn’t just translucent.. but when I saw this one and saw how soft and luminous it looked, I had to try it. Plus, I was starting to feel my old translucent setting powder just made my face look and feel flat. I use this also to bake my concealer underneath my eyes as well and it does a beautiful job at that too! Totally extends the wear of my makeup... I could get away with no touching up throughout the day (I’m mostly only oily in my t-zone but, nothing that I’d call oily skin). This powder is so finely milled, it seriously feels like velvet. It doesn’t make your overall face any lighter in pictures and doesn’t create a white cast like some others do either. And for under $6?!??! WHY wouldn’t you just try this, just to say that you at least did!? E.L.F has been coming out with some pretty amazing products, skincare included. I’m actually obsessed with a few of their skincare products right now too. They have totally stepped their game up, while still remaining at extremely affordable pricing! Although, it is a bummer that stores don’t carry nearly half of what they sell on their website. And they always have deals going on online and you can sign up for free (just with email) and become a beauty point member and start getting free makeup too! So I highly suggest everyone check their website out! Also.. if I could compare this setting powder to a more expensive one, I’d say it’s a lot like urban decay’s velvetizer setting powder... in the sense of how it feels when applying to your skin, the texture of the powder, and the natural sheen finish it leaves. Just pure beauty

I love this powder. Its literally so great. And so affordable. I got it from walmart for like 6$ and it was so worth it. You really get a lot of product so it lasts a while. I use it on my under eye and the bridge of my nose and it really brightens my face. It doesn't make my skin too dry so your skin gets dry like mines don't worry this will work for you. And it doesn't make my makeup look cakey it actually makes it look more natural and brought together. I really recommend this its one of my favorite products.

This was the first time I've used an e.l.f setting powder. I found it easy to use. I also thought it worked well with my skin. I didn't find it too be too chalky or light. Being that it's sheer it blended well with my liquid foundation. The container is a bit tricky and the powder is a bit dusty. Besides that, it worked well. I found that it help up this week for nearly 12 hours. My makeup looked good. When i tested it the first time I didn't seem to have any flashback when i took a photo. When I used it this week (Last picture) I didn't seem to have any uneven or light patches.

I purchased this product at Kroger’s (I get most of my stuff there! lol) when I was just getting into trying out different beauty products. I had heard many people going on about finishing powders so I decided to try a cheap one which is how I ended up with the e.l.f. brand. Let me just say that I started of with e.l.f. brand because they’re cheap and you can get it almost anywhere. Even though they’re cheap, their products are still fantastic so I still purchase their products among other high end products. Anyways, I decided to try this finishing powder and I didn’t regret it, I still use it today! It gives a great finishing look so I absolutely love it!

Not the first time an Eyes,Lips & Face product has upset me, but well this is one of them.This formula has like..little pieces of something..but i don't know what to call it, imagine miniature white rocks broken in a thousand pieces and mixed in with the translucent powder.That's exactly what it would look like.It is extremely bothering because it makes my makeup look cakey and streaky and it is just disgusting.It is hard to look good when your makeup looks "badly" done.

Recommend?NO!
R.O.D?NEVER!
Matches it's price?OF COURSE!

(The product is cheap and i mean that it matches its price because its not only really cheap it feels cheap on the skin too).

I was blown away by this product! I’ve had some hit or misses with ELF products, but this was most definitely a HIT. The texture of this powder is unbelievable and its ability to mattify even the oilest of skins is incredible. I get very very oily in my T zone so I set my whole face with this while giving extra attention to the oily areas. I use a brush to set my face and it works amazingly. Also, if I get oily throughout the day/night I just have to take that same brush and dab it onto the oily areas! I don’t even have to pick up more product, it mattifies the oily areas with just the excess product left on the brush. With the super cheap price point, I 100% recommend this product to everyone.

This powder is okay for setting/baking my under eye concealer. I have found, though, that it tends to clump up if I spray my blender with a setting spray first. When I wipe it off I have to be very careful to make sure there are no clumps on my face (which sometimes happens). If I'm not extremely careful, this stuff can sometimes set into my creases and makes the situation worse and I would have been better off not setting the under eye at all. I do like the packaging (with the top that spins so you can covers the holes) to prevent the powder from spilling into the cover if you're traveling. However, the product typically gets everywhere no matter how careful I am. Also, if i dip my lightly damp blender into the lid with powder, it's almost like the powder doesn't want to go on the sponge. It moves away from it and makes it very hard to get on the sponge and to apply under the eye. I would not recommend this and I won't repurchase. Maybe it's the setting spray that's the problem, but that's the only way I will set my under eye concealer. I find that it makes it last the longest.

Review for: Sheer more...
I bought this product before going to Disney world and couple months ago because i didn’t want to wear heavy foundation but wanted my face to not look shiny. I liked that it gave my face a matte finish and was very light weight after applying. My t-zone would look a little shiny periodically but that’s normal for me and could easily be blotted away with a napkin or something of the sort. I just don’t like how my skin looked ashy. I mean i had never used a translucent powder before and thought it would be a good idea since i wasn’t going to really be packing it on my face or anything. With my regular colored face powder i get a foundation look but i didn’t want that which is why i got this. Overall it’s a good product, i normally use it over my under eye concealer to help brighten more.

How much can I expect to pay for this? I know prices vary, though an average would be nice. It has good reviews, and I have known the elf brand to be quite cost effective.
