Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

Ever since I started using this product it has been great! I do not recommend it if you have quite dry skin unless you have done everything for your face to keep it from being flakey with your foundation. It would be perfect after that for anyone. It does has a tendency to move with certain foundations but that is something for everyone as trial and error its hard to say if it will move on others with the same foundations it has with me.

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

    This powder is fantastic BUT be aware- it will flash back at you. I look like a ghost in pictures taken with flash at night while i was wearing this. Really good powder for every day but definitely not a night out kinda thing. Wears well throughout the day, but you need to be careful about which concealers/other products you mix it well. Doesnt seem to want to play nice with colourpop's concealers, but works wonderfully with tarte shape tape. needs some trial and error to figure out how it works for you personally but its so cheap its worth it!!

    Use to bake undereye and oily areas. Still get a little shiny but then again I am still trying different primers and setting sprays. Just wish I could get it in my town instead of having to buy online.

      Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

      I searched everywhere for a yellow powder concealer to cover dark circles. I've tried creams, but they always seem to magnify wrinkles under the eye. I've been using the yellow powder in my Anastasia and Nyx contour kits, but I used them up and the coverage wasn't that great.

      Although this powder can be quite messy, I use a Real Techniques setting brush to apply the powder by dipping it in the top of the container. It covers my dark circles completely. I love this stuff. It doesn't settle in the creases either.

      Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

      i was super hesitant and scared to buy this product because setting powders aren't something i'll settle for. i've used laura mercier, kat von d, cover fx, RCMA and they're all really good. this one was just as amazing! i have a hard time finding setting powders that will actually be long lasting and tonight i wore this for 6 hours and when i got home i went straight to the mirror to see if it had done its job and it tooootally did! the ooonly thing i'll say negative about this is that it is slightly shimmery but definitely nothing over powering. i personally don't mind it for go to because i like to look luminous and glowy on my natural days. i also love how finely milled this powder is it feels luxurious. love it and love elf ❤️

      Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

      I hate splurging on Powder because I'm a makeup artist with Oily skin, so I use powder daily to set my liquid foundation, it's a must, I don't go without it. The technique I've found that works best for me is to use a damp beauty blender and heavily apply powder to my entire face, beginning with areas that crease to prevent creasing. Then I go back and swirl what ever's leftover in the lid onto my face and blend onto my neck. Then I take a clean brush and dust off any excess. I use A LOT of powder, but this is the only method that keeps me as oily free as possible. Because of this routine I go through powder like crazy and refuse to pay over $10 for it (unless it's Ben Nye Banana Powder!). I previously used elf's high definition powder in translucent, but as of lately while it's still been effective I've definitely noticed that it hasn't been as finely milled as previously and unfortunately the bottom of my last 4 containers have contained little balls of product, like powder solids. For whatever reason, I could never find elf's yellow powder in stores, so I never tried it. I gave up on elf, tried other brands, found a few that worked ok, but hated paying the more expensive price for a lesser product. One day at Ulta, low and behold they had the yellow elf powder. It's definitely brighter than Ben Nye's Banana Powder, and despite being just as finely milled, I feel like its a dryer powder, whereas ben nye was soft and luxurious. Nonetheless, it works incredibly well. It camouflages my pores, brightens my skin tone and helps neutralize pink based foundations. My undertone is yellow, but i find that pink based shades are more accurately matched to my actual skin color and look less muddy., but the tone is off. The powder fixed that completely. As long as the formula stays the same, I'll be buying only this from now on.

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

        Translucent - I am not crazy about the texture of this product. I find lots of particles are way too big and not as powdery as I would like. After applying, I have to dust the larger particles off my face, which is disappointing because I love the undereye setting powder so much. I know this is a budget product but the consistency seems very low quality. Since it's more of a setting powder there is not much coverage, so I won't comment on that. It does do a good job at mattifying and does not clog pores. I will not buy this again.

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics High Definition Powder:

        This product is fantastic. Great price point. I used to use it all over the face, and it worked fine for that in the translucent shade. Now I just use it for baking under the eyes and other key points. Keeps makeup fresh all day long, even in hot summer weather. Doesn't cake up. I will continue to purchase. The only thing is that the new package redesign isn't my favorite, and it no longer includes a powder puff which is disappointing.
