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)

I like this for the most part... Soft.. nicely milled... Not drying... But definitely a DAY WEAR powder! Beware of this and their HALO setting powders having flashback.. especially at night.. think you can see some of the sparkle in powder pic below 😊

First of all, anyone who doesn't know already, elf is one of the very best discount cosmetic lines out there. Actually, I'd say because of they're price point, they rank #1 in my book with NYX following in close second. NYX also holds a special place in my heart, but is slightly more expensive than elf. I initially bought this powder a few years ago when I was first discovering elf and starting to get into makeup more. I HATED it at first! I thought it was too light, and you could see it all over my face and it just looked terrible. The problem was not with the makeup itself but with how i was applying it. I did find other uses for it at the time though. I have pretty oily skin naturally and didn't want to shell out lots of money for the good foundations that cater to oily skin, so I began mixing a bit of this powder in with my foundation. It worked pretty well, though it didn't totally help the oilyness. Also this stuff works great if you run out of dry shampoo and need some in a pinch! Fast forward a few years and I'd like to think I am much better and more knowledgeable of makeup application. Knowing the correct way to apply this, it is now one of my must have products! It actually rivals the Makeup Forever translucent powder, and for this price, I'd say it wins. The best way I've found to apply this is: - I lightly dust it with a fluffy brush over the areas on my face that I use concealer to highlight. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. Your makeup will not move if you do this. - I also use this to "bake" my face. This is literally the only thing I can to to fight the oil on my skin! I always had an issue with it and as soon as I baked for the first time, it totally solved the problem! To do this, you use concealer and then a THICK layer of powder on your trouble areas. You let that set for about 10 minutes and then dust it off with a fluffy brush. Voila! Shine free :) 100% the best powder you can get at this price point.

A little goes a long way and gives a soft focused look when used as finishing powder. Seems to reduce look of fine lines and pores. Overuse could come out a bit powdery but has never gone cakey on me. Seemed the same as MUFE HD Powder at a fraction of the price. Uses: -Buff small amount with kabuki brush over bbcream/tinted moisturizer/foundation to cut shine. -With a small round brush I sweep a tiny amount on top of my eye concealer. Keeps it in place without sinking into lines. -After applying lipstick/lipliner/gloss, with small brush sweep powder just above lip-line/lipstick to sharpen the line and keep lip products from traveling. -If foundation seems a tad dark this helps lighten a bit. -Sets foundation on legs. Seems to keep foundation on legs without transfer better than other powders. Very useful for back of knees. ------------------------------ Problems: -Use with caution in photographs. -Can be too drying for some skin types. I can't use on flakey skin days. -Might give white cast to darker skin tones. -Too much looks ghastly. -Not great with bronzed looks. As others said, leave sticker on sifter and poke a few holes through the tape/sifter so product doesn't come out too rapidly. Apply clear tape and poke holes through it, if you've already removed sticker. I turn container over with top on and use the little bit of product left behind in the top to avoid using too much.

Review for: Sheer
This powder makes your face feel velvety smooth. I personally like laura mercier but its on the more expensive side. Elf hd powder is Very similar to that but is super affordable. I recommend this powder for setting your makeup or baking your face. Its sheer so it works with many skin tones and looks great in person or on camera. It now has a spot on my top shelf.

So I know I just received all my elf products but I've used them a few times so here I go!! This definition powder is wonderful it really evens out the skin prepping it for a great even look. It also has a great new cap so you waste less product! Its super affordable everyday but right now they are having a MAJOR super sale! I posted it on my IG with an extra code to get more money off. @Beauty.is.everyone

This is a nice finishing powder. Very fine powder that blurs and softens without drying. I like this much more than products 5x the cost!
