I love the e.l.f sheer powder. It's a great go-to setting powder if you're on a budget. It goes on so smooth and stays all day! I would consider this a dupe to the Laura mercier setting powder.

I do love ELF products and every time I'm buying cosmetics from this company I am impressed with their quality. The ELF Studio High Definition Powder follows this quality trend. I have been using this product for about 4 months now and I am pleased how it works on my skin. I have combination skin and I am applying this to set up my foundation, I have a fresh face every day without any shine. I received many compliments since I'm using this product, trust me. I love the formula, it feels very gently on the skin, blends very well, my only complaint would be that on my very fair skin tone it makes me even whiter. Luckly, I know how to fix it, pairing a bold lipstick along.

It's okay. Good for baking and setting the undereyes. It does have terrible flash back, so you probably don't wanna take any flash photos with it. But, it keeps Makeup in place and it's cheap.

I like the setting powder a lot because it is not pricey and it gets the job done. It doesn’t have flashback and makes my face less oily especially on my nose, it also controls my smile lines.

This powder is a little chalky and creates a white cast on my skin. It also will cling to any dry patches that I get. I don’t really like this powder that much. It’s not horrible but it’s not the best

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVD THIS PRODUCT. Let me first start by saying that this is my holy grail product for makeup that looks flawless all day long. I have oily skin, and while I know that this is not what it’s purpose is, it certainly works perfectly fine for me. I like to put this on before I apply my foundation and concealer so it kind of makes my makeup look smooth and not cakey—kind I’d like a powder primer.. and then I apply a few swipes with my stippling brush on my T-zone because that is where I get the oiliest. And let me tell you... it does wonders. I’ve gotten many compliments on how my makeup looks very flawless, and almost as if I’m not wearing makeup at all!! As I go throughout the day, if I feel as though my face is looking a little shiny, then I’ll just do some touch ups, but for the most part, this is what makes my makeup stay in tact and looking fresh as if I had just put it on! I have bought this three times, and will continue to buy this for as long as I live!

Use this product to set your makeup. This is not a product where you'll see a big difference after applying but it performs beautifully. HD powders help to give a smooth air brushed look, absorbs oil and helps to hide fine lines. Do not use the puff to apply this product! Use either a fan brush or a big fluffy brush for a light application - you don't need a lot. This powder is very finely milled so it's excellent quality but for the same reason be careful when opening package as the product tends to go everywhere. This is very comparable to the hd powder from Makeup Forever but it is much much more affordable. MUF is $32 for 9.9 grams and ELF is $6 for 8 grams and you can always find a sale or promo code for the ELF website. Comes in a couple of different shades - translucent, shimmer & a corrective yellow. (I have the translucent). Also don't use this if you will be in flash photography (any professional pictures) as it will give your skin a white cast in the pictures.

I wanted to like this because it’s affordable and ELF is usually pretty good. It leaves weird tiny while balls on your face and looks super powdery even after setting spray. Not a fan at all.

Really like this for daily use over my foundation. I have to be careful not to use too much because it can be a bit too white. However, it’s great for baking under eye concealer and setting foundation.

This high definition powder from e.l.f leaves a great finish. It’s soft and matte. I use it for my under eye area to prevent creasing. It’s a great value, for sure! I’ll definitely buy again!

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.
