Most Helpful Positive Review Great for undereyes
I bought this powder to use on my under-eyes only, as i don't like using HD powders on my entire face. Under my eyes, this product is amazing! It is silky smooth, and sets my under eye concealer perfectly, my concealer NEVER creases. This is basically a pressed version of the studio hd powder in sheer. I love this for travel. The studio hd loose powder used to be my holy grail for my undereyes, and this is a more compact version of it, it even gives that soft focus effect. new favourite!
Most Helpful Critical Review OK
I bought this to used as an on the go touch-up powder and it didn't work for me. I use the loose version of this powder to set my t-zone and under eye and love it. I thought this would be perfect to dim the shine than sometimes peeks out throughout the day. I does that but it leaves too much of a white cast behind. The included sponge deposists too much powder and I need to sheer it out with a fluffy brush. I don't plan to carry another tool around all day to make this product work. I will continue to use this product when I travel because it does apply like I want it to with a fluffy brush and this formulation is a little more travel friendly than the loose powder but I won't repurchase. This might be perfect for those that find the loose powder too messy to work with.

Use this daily, love the silky feeling, the staying power even with a mask and that it still looks good at the end of the day. Glad I gave it a try.

Left a white cask over my face!! Took a picture with the flash on and looked like Casper the ghost! No, thanks 😳
Wear test comparison with Higher end brands
Cat from Las Vegas, NV
I have oily skin with dry patches; large pores. I use Milk Hydro primer and IT Cosmetics oil free Bye Bye Foundation in Medium tone.
I did over the course of a few days, a wear test, with the ELF powder on my left side whilst trying on: Clinique setting powder, Lancome long time no shine powder, Giorgio Armani Luminous pressed powder, and IT Cosmetics bye bye pores powder on my right side.
To my surprise, the ELF either did better or the same as those higher priced powders. So if ELF did that much to combat my oiliness and setting my makeup, then it is a keeper and I returned all the other higher brands.
It didn't make me look like a ghost, it blurred my pores, took away unwanted shine, set my makeup for a little longer than it would without a powder and it didn't look cakey for me. It didn't come with an applicator, but I prefer to use a brush or my damp beauty blender any way, so I'm not bummed about the applicator missing.
I wanted to favor the high end brands solely because sometimes when I pay more, i feel like it works better, but they didn't. I ended up loving this ELF powder instead.
affordable and a must have in your bag!
Mimi from Texas
Wow. First off the price is great I was about to purchase the nars compact powder but I'm so glad i gave this one a try first. I love using this with a brush and apply it where I see my face getting oily. The best part is that it has a mirror so you can carry it anywhere you go and you know you are covered to look matte all day.
Best finishing powder!
Krysta13 from Woodbury NJ
I LOVE this finishing powder! Keeps the oils under control all day so I never look shiny. I do also spray on e.l.f. finishing spray after applying the powder.
Best Drugstore Setting Powder
MoxiRox from St. Louis
I wore this powder all day for a wedding along with setting spray. My makeup DID NOT BUDGE and there is no white cast in flash photography. It's my favorite to use during the fall/winter when I can't use UD's all nighter waterproof powder.
Remember going back for more
itselainesworld from Brooklyn
I remmeber really liking this product when I first bought it, at a great price point and went back for more! I will say that once it gets close to PAN, it can break though. Still a good value for what it is, so I just bought another.
Maritzarod from Riverside, RI
It has a poor texture, it is dry and not worth it!
LauraT04 from undisclosed
I bought this powder specifically to carry in my purse so that I could use it throughout the day for my oily spots. I was disappointed that it had a compartment for a sponge or puff, but there was not one included. No big deal, I'll just buy some extra puffs. So I bought some very small standard size compact puffs (just like the ones that come in a Cover Girl compact), but they did not fit so the compact doesn't close. They are too thick. So now I cannot carry it in my purse which is frustrating because that's the reason I bought it. I put a heavy book on top top of it to try to make the powder puff smaller. Maybe it will work. I shouldn't have to go through all of this trouble to use this product though.
Wonderful for daily use!

I bought this powder for daily use, and I'm so glad I did! It's perfect for any occasion and lasts all day. Definitely worth the purchase!
Best HD on the market!!!
MurseXander from undisclosed
As a guy, I never thought I would need/use finishing powder, but as my makeup kit has gotten bigger, this is THE must have product! Fills in my pores and sets everything FLAWLESSLY. A little goes a LONG way, so this should last. I had a few other brands I wanted to try, but for how well this works - and the price - I'll never use anything else!
Tcool from Cincinnati ohio
I love this product because there is no color when putting it on my face so it goes on clear. I have a defined color so really hard to match up. I like that it helps keep my make up and my foundation from clumping up underneath my eyes
Very translucent and blots oil well < 3
nl611 from Montreal, Canada
I bought this powder about 2 years ago and have used it a LOT ever since. I am a competitive dancer, so I had to use a lot of foundation and heavy products every week during competition seasons. I have a foundation powder from Bare Minerals that suits my skin tone well, but I didn't want to keep using an expensive product for competition makeup, so I tried this out. I was shocked when I first put this powder over my foundation because it really did not look white AT ALL (I'm Indian and have a cool, medium brown skin tone). It set the makeup well and I use it for basic, daily makeup as well! I use it to touch up during the day too since my face gets real oily.
Berry123 from Manchester
This powder is great for setting make up, doesn't give that dull appearance that other setting powders do, however I would suggest applying this lightly with a damp beauty blender, as I found a brush can make it a bit thick especially under the eyes
great quality for affordable price
nicki from ceres
Ive been using this for years now my skin is oily and this literally lasts up to 7 hours of making my skin look matt
I would fine a better quality powder
Raven from Illinois
It's does the job but when you but it on it leaves your skin really dry and the concealer starts to crack.. mine didn't come with the powder brush it suppose to come with... runs out easily... make sure to but extra mostrizor so it doesn't crack....
Tas from San Francisco
I love it for my oily-combo skin! Helps to last my make up whole day. Rediscovered the product in this summer again and It's a favorite again!
Cakey and splotchy
Abbie from Missouri
I had my boyfriend grab this for me while he was out because I was completely out of my KVD setting powder. I thought I could try a cheaper option. I assumed there couldn't be that much difference between brands of translucent powders. I was so very wrong. This product separates my makeup horribly especially on my nose. It turns my whole face cakey and dry looking. I will spend the extra money for a better brand ASAP.
Yarly from Puerto Rico
In love with this product, blends perfectly with my foundation. Also long wearing, my skin is oily and did not get greasy nor shiny.
Neuneu from California
Ive never really used powder when doing my makeup before, but this is amazing. I highly recommend it. I have oily skin and this helps stop the shine and set my makeup. Will definitely buy again.
MrsDeLaSol from Georgia
This is the BEST translucent power that I've ever used. It smoothes over everything and makes my skin tan look near flawless! A while ago I had something similar from another high end brand, I loved it too, but it was way too expensive. I found this and I use it everyday and I even buy two when reordering. Was asked by an associate in Old Navy who had her face done beautifully, what I used on my skin. I told her ELF, and I showed her this product, and she asked me if it made your skin look white and powdery I told her that I was wearing it now, and she had to admin it looked great! That's all the proof i needed to keep using it.
vberk from Tennessee
Really love this powder for baking my face! Doesn't leave me looking dried out or with an ashy cast on my face.
