e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder
Gives off a flashback and has you looking like a clown. Idk if it’s maybe it’s to bright for my complexion which played a part but still it has you with the four big White blotches on your face. However The pros are that powder is cheap and you can get it from Walmart for about $6 dollars. So it definitely makes you want to by it because of the price. I just don’t like it.
Great powder, great price, great amount for $6.00! I purchased this to enter a contest that elf had recently, and I built a beach scene using salt and the translucent powder. I pocketed the leftover powder into my kit for my clients, and I love the finish. As long as you set with a spray, and dust off the powder thoroughly beforehand, you get no flashback.
I did not like this powder at all. It was so white on my face that I could see it (which is saying a lot because I am very pale). It also left terrible flashback, which I know is pretty standard with all HD powders. I could honestly get passed that, but it didn't do anything for my skin and it actually emphasized dry skin that I didn't even know I had.
Girl, the setting powder is so worth it. I have the world oiliest T-zone. When I tell you I looked photo ready as soon as i pat it it on my face! It’s only six dollars you guys go out and buy this not playing LOL. I’m so excited to use this on my clients for future photo shoots!
I use a loose HD silica powder daily over my foundation - a very thin layer buffed in, and then top it with my regular loose powder. I live in Texas where the climate can be quite warm & humid, and I find that this helps keep my makeup longwearing, as well as gives some nice optical blurring effects. I've previously used Make Up For Ever, NYX, and Maybelline's HD powders, and I find that the ELF powder is the same ingredients, but a lower price for a larger amount of product. The tub lasts me well over a year for the tiny amount I use, and I honestly find that the performance for me personally is identical to the other brands I mentioned. I have repurchased this multiple times and will continue to do so!
This is a good loose powder for everyday wear. It helps to keep my naturally oily skin to have a almost matte finish. It also helped my makeup to stay in place for a while. The problem is that if your picture is taken with the flash on you completely look as white as ghost. James Charles would definitely say it causes a “Flashback Mary effect.”
This is my go-to powder! I’ve been using it for almost a year and I haven’t switched to anything else. It makes my concealer and foundation stay on, and gives my skin such an airbrushed look. It also helps combat oiliness because I have very oily skin. I haven’t noticed any flashback either. For this price, it’s amazing and absolutely worth it!
I heard great things about this and grabbed it while I was out one day. The price point on it is great, but you get what you pay for. This pruduct clung to every fine line and dry spot. Also, the pruduct student last very long. After about a week or two of use, only using once a day and not every day the product was gone. Would not but again.
Q & A
Whats is this used for?
Does this make your foundation lighter or is it translusant
Does the product create a weird look on camera?
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.
Where can i buy it?
