This is a great finishing powder. I like how smooth it goes on , and you don’t need to put a ton on to get good coverage. It matches my skin tone perfectly, and lasts all day for me. This also helps with my under eye dark circles that I get. Another thing I love about the product , is that it looks natural in the light as well.The price is absolutely awesome, and love the quality. I would highly recommend.

You can't best the price. This powder operated as an on the go option for me. If I'm going to happy hour I'll touch up with this at work. If your in a budget you this is a good product, and if you're staying out in the world of makeup this is a good starting point

It's really good and it doesn't feel like my face is dry when I apply it after foundation and concealer. It's soo super soft and I use it everyday when I'm just trying to look decent☺ it gets the job done and I love the packaging, it's not big and bulky like the the mabelline fit me powder. I use the shade fair/light☺ and I love it!😍

When I think of E.L.F. finishing powder, I think of value and beauty! Available at any Walmart, you can get this sheer powder to perfectly bake your face! I recommend this powder over the many other expensive products that would give you the same result this product can give.

I turn to this brand if I’m unsure about adding or changing a step in my routine and need to ply around a bit, mostly because it’s so cheap. I actually like this powder though. I brush this on over a tinted moisturizer and it lightly adds to the color, sets the tint well and dulls the unwanted shine. I plan to purchase this again.

This is a very affordable setting powder that has two purposes. It primes and also sets your skin. The best part of this product is it’s only a couple of dollars. I would recommend this product to others.

It stays on all day and night, crying your tears out because your boyfriend dumped you over text..? This powder will help you find another(and better) one! Lol.

pros- stays on all day and night smooth, matte look
cons- 0.001% of it being cakey

I have the Translucent Fair/Light and it is actually really nice for setting any liquid or cream foundations. The price is also very nice and you actually get a lot of product in the pan which is great. I highly recommend this product for anyone on a budget.

I'm really a fan of this considering how cheap it is. I put on my lancome foundation and then use this as my setting/finishing powder. I swirl my brush in it and dab it all over my face. It sets everything quite well and lasts pretty much throughout the whole day, as long as you don't touch your face too much!

I was very pleased with this product and would buy again. My makeup stayed in place and it gave a great matte finish. The only issue I had was even though I applied very little it made my makeup a bit cakey. Other than that I recommend this!
Does it make you get breakouts? I'm really curious about this powder.
