This worked alright for me, but I found it aggravating to use because of the small shape & size of the product/packaging itself, especially being a person who's used to using larger, round compact powders, so I've never been a huge fan of square & rectangular pressed powders. The actual product was in fact sheer, but a little too sheer for me/my skin. I do like that it didn't have a strong scent to it like some powders do, and also appreciated that it didn't cause my skin any irritation or breakouts; so this would be great for someone just starting out with makeup or a person that just doesn't like to wear a lot of makeup in general, because of its lightweight & sheer properties, it doesn't look or feel like you've got makeup on at all. So it's a good product; it's just not my personal preference.

I like how this powder applies and it definitely blends into my skin tone and is translucent, which I was a bit skeptical of. I have pretty oily skin and it does a fire job of helping to keep me from shining after 20 minutes. You can't beat the price of ELF products either.

The product works very well to mattify the skin and is quite soft and blendable. Only be careful when you use the provided sponge, it picks up too much product if you're not careful, which may be good for some, but isn't a personal preference of my own. I would also request that they make a more diverse shade range, because this would most likely only would work for someone with a pale skin tone like mine.

It's an alright powder. I think it's great to pick up if you're in need of a powder because you forgot yours or something like that consider it's sold at such an affordable price. It'll do the job but nothing spectacular. I'm not a fan of the little sponge it comes with to apply the powder but I do enjoy the compact it comes in as well as the mirror it has.

I use this powder to mattify and set my lipstick, as with the sponge it is just perfect for that. I’ve used it on my face as well, but I just don’t really like being matte. It did do a good job setting my makeup in place, although without a great foundation and primer this powder isn’t going to lock it in all day.

This was my go to holy grail product in middle school! It worked as a replacement when I didn’t have concealer with me, especially covering up dark circles. This isn’t just a finishing powder, since it’s colored you can do so much more. The finish is a little thicker but it’s very matte.

This is actually one of my favorite ELF products, I'm a huge fan of ELF though so that might not be saying much! I usually grab this over my more expensive ones, it goes on smooth & is the perfect shade! I absolutely love it & most of ELF products! I'd recommend everyone trying this or at least an ELF product. Elf products are usually super cheap (I consider them cheap), so you don't have to put alot of money into trying something you're not sure of. I promise once you try this or any elf products, you'll fall in love! Cheap & amazing, I'd recommend to all.

This powder is amazing! I wish I could find it at Kroger. It’s so matte it does a great job setting any kind of concealer or cover up & touching up. I like the sponge. It’s profile is slim so it won’t be bulky in your bag. You don’t get a lot of product & this should be $1 not $3 what happened to all of the $1 products from elf ev1 loved? 💔 now they are $2 and $3 .a $1 to $3 product that’s a 300% increase on the same size product no bueno. It’s still cheap & still good. This product is better than the major ds brands like cover girl, revlon, L’Oréal, maybelline......

I think this is a great setting powder. It is translucent and does what it's supposed to. Mattifies and increases wear time. Wish they did away with the sponge and just made the pan bigger, as I use a powder brush to apply this. Sponges are too rough and I feel take off the foundation underneath.
