I purchased this in Sheer and love how beautifully it dusts across the skin. If you like the matte look, but don't want to pay a small fortune for higher end powders, then this one is totally for you. You also get a good amount of the product. I love that the sifter in the container doesn't let a huge amount escape. I hate powder messes! It also comes with a little puff which is nice if you use puffs. Some higher priced powders don't even come with one. So it's a great value for the money. It's also a nice dupe for the Makeup Forever HD powder, both are super fine and give very similar results. It keeps shine away for most of the day and gives you a nice smooth flawless look. I have fair skin, and this powder does really well for me. It's translucent, so I never notice it changing the look of my makeup. My only complaint is because of the shape of the container, the lid is sometimes awkward to remove. Still, I highly recommend it!

Review for: Sheer more...
I feel like this works better than Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder , especially under the eyes. It does mattify your look , so probably avoid using with a dewy foundation. I think it does well for the price, but it's no magic wand. I don't know if it gives my skin that soft focus finished look that I was really hoping for (but neither did the Airspun). However, it does set down your makeup so you can put powders on top without sucking the life out of your skin. And I think it does help keep creasing at bay somewhat ( although it's not perfect at that either ). The thing is, with powder price is so important because you swipe half of it away so I'm willing to make compromises for price in this arena. Feels like a waste of money to use a more expensive one, so I think this one does the job enough that I would repurchase.

Review for: Sheer more...
I bought this product before going to Disney world and couple months ago because i didn’t want to wear heavy foundation but wanted my face to not look shiny. I liked that it gave my face a matte finish and was very light weight after applying. My t-zone would look a little shiny periodically but that’s normal for me and could easily be blotted away with a napkin or something of the sort. I just don’t like how my skin looked ashy. I mean i had never used a translucent powder before and thought it would be a good idea since i wasn’t going to really be packing it on my face or anything. With my regular colored face powder i get a foundation look but i didn’t want that which is why i got this. Overall it’s a good product, i normally use it over my under eye concealer to help brighten more.

Review for: Sheer more...
I purchased this product at Kroger’s (I get most of my stuff there! lol) when I was just getting into trying out different beauty products. I had heard many people going on about finishing powders so I decided to try a cheap one which is how I ended up with the e.l.f. brand. Let me just say that I started of with e.l.f. brand because they’re cheap and you can get it almost anywhere. Even though they’re cheap, their products are still fantastic so I still purchase their products among other high end products. Anyways, I decided to try this finishing powder and I didn’t regret it, I still use it today! It gives a great finishing look so I absolutely love it!

Review for: Corrective Yellow more...
I didn’t think I was going to like this powder at first since is it a really bright shade of yellow, but I found that using a really light hand and tapping the brush to remove any excess powder is key. I use it under my eyes after applying concealer, but only on the warmer months since my skin is really dry and if I use any kind of powder in the winter it will crease. It sets my concealer very nicely and lasts for several hours. It is a good powder overall and for the price it comes with a lot of product. Definitely recommend to check it out if you’re in the hunt for an affordable yet reliable setting powder.

I did not like this product one bit. I use many elf products and am pleased with the ones i do use. I find it's a great value for a quality product. So when I saw they made a high definition powder, I figured I would try it. It was supposed to be translucent but even after applying it lightly and using my powder brush to knock off the excess. It still gave me this Casper the ghost style white tint to my face. I tried using it multiple ways and didn't find an effect way to use it. It didn't set my makeup and made me have this white washed out look. I ended up giving it to my friend and she hasn't tried yet so maybe she will have better results than me. I hate to give any product a negative review. Typically I find a positive or alternative use or something that makes it good. I couldn't do that with this product and I'm sorry. Also I think makeup product reviews are biased based on your own skin tone and type so I'll clarify that I am a very pale toned skin that is combination type

I purchased this with a bunch of other ELF products. I don’t hate it.... it does what it says it does and leaves my face flawless. At the same time, I use this in conjunction with NYC Dewy Finishing spray because I tend to be drier skinned so this just brings that out. It’s lightweight and doesn’t show up powdery. I will buy this again because in the summer I bet it will be exactly what I need to help hide my giant pores and set my makeup. Oh and the price is fantastic.

Review for: Sheer more...
This left my skin with a really, really white glittery hue no matter how much I used. Even the most sparse amount will give that effect. I was disappointed that it didn't last past two hrs max no matter the season. My skin is combination so I originally thought that was a factor but it wasn't. My skin did look great in pictures during the initial two hours though. Given how big the container is and how messy it can be, I don't recommend taking it on-the-go.

I use this in the pressed compact rather than the loose powder. I like it a lot. It sets my makeup nicely, doesn't have any white cast to it and creates a nice matte finish. BUT.... And I don't think it's this product, I think it's always going to be an issue when I use powders, but it dries me out. Especially under my eyes. My dry, aging skin just doesn't like powders of any kind. I see they make a setting balm now too and can't wait to give it a try.

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.
