okay, i’m going to be real. to start the packaging is very cheap & plastic. however the powder is actually pretty good for face set but it doesn’t last very long & usually need retouching. but it’s only 2 bucks which is super cheap. from my personal experience the powder didn’t last long & once it started getting empty the entire powder tray just broke into tiny pieces & wasn’t very useful after that. i would purchase again just because of the price!

I am going to begin by saying that I started by using Laura Mercier setting powder and I needed a cheaper alternative. First, for the price of $2, you get a really good powder and it looks really nice on the face. The only con is that you do have to reapply in the middle of the day because it does wear off. If you want an inexpensive finishing powder, I recommend E.L.F.

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.

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.

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'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!

The price is right on this one. Prime and stay is the perfect name for this product. I am first aid beauty coconut primer and then use this product for a natural polished look for the summer months. I even have a dewey look with this primer and stay powder.

I use this daily over my liquid foundation. It works beautifully, and is a great powder to take with you on the go. It works beautifully over liquid foundation, just doesn’t give great coverage by itself. All in all, though, it is a great powder for its low, easily affordable price.

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.
