When I had oily skin this was such an amazing powder. It’s nice and matte, yet doesn’t look chalky and thick on the skin. You get plenty in the tub and it lasted me a good 4 months of daily use!
The only slight down side is that it’s a loose powder so it isn’t always ideal to travel about with

Seriously the best setting/HD powder I've used and the price! Goes on smooth with full coverage, set my face for the whole day. Great for a matte finish! You get a lot of product in this package. Would definitely buy again and again and again!

Lots of product for the price and actual amount needed for each application. It definitely "conver up" signs of pores and makes your skin appears smoothr. If over applied will make your face looks like its been powdered up with white powder.

Best way to use it is to use the sponge/puff that comes with the product. With hand pressing the puff firmly on the sieve of the product, ensure all holes where product can spill out Is covered by puff, flip the tub upside down while hand still firmly pressing puff in place. flip it back to how it usually is and remove the puff. puff is now covered with powder that came out of the sieve holes which is just the right amount for each application. Pat the puff onto ur face and with a press and smothing out motion, spread the powder over the area where you wan it smoothn. Try not to exeed 3 applications of this powder to avoid white cast.

to set liquid/cream products,pour the powder onto the upturn lid and use a kabuki or fluffy face powder brush to pick up the powder before brushing it all over your face.

very good powder, kept me matte all day and my makeup didnt shift at all. the packaging is very bulky and messy, they need to slim down the packaging and make it less messy. good value for the amount of powder you receive. i would definitely buy it again

This is good for the pricepoint - I like to use it on my under-eye concealer and sometimes for baking. If you use it all over your face you'll get little fibres and bits of powder everywhere that don't seem to want to come off. Just use a little bit.

This powder is perfect for final powder and setting all the make up in your face. It maoes your skin look HD. For real. It seals all the make up and lock it to its place making it also last longer. I love this.

i've recently started using this and i'd love to say it's like a dupe for the laura mercier powder, it's compleletly matte and wonderful for baking your under eyes with !! it's more for oily skin because it tends to cling to dryness , but over all i recommend this product to all my friends !

very cheap alternative for beginners, does a good job at setting concealer and this actually brightens your under eye area significantly! I don’t typically reach for this anymore because I have other powders that I use frequently but this is definitely a good option for those who are looking for affordable drugstore powders! I also recommend the COVERGIRL Professional Loose Powder

The elf high definition powder is one of my personal favourite products. Its great for a combination of oily skin as well as dry skin. It keep your makeup on all day and gives you a matte finish. I would definitely buy this again as it is a very good product and comes at a really good price

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.
