Most Helpful Positive Review only powder i'll use!
This is the only finishing powder that I have repurchased again and again. It's soooo silky soft and sets my makeup to death. I don't always wear a full face of foundation, so I especially love setting my concealer on any problem areas/acne with this. It lasts all day and I don't have to worry about caking or fading. It doesn't make my skin look washed out, just soft and silky. Keeps my oil at bay as well!
My only complaint is the packaging- I love that this comes in a pressed form, but the lid broke off the day I got it. I honestly can't complain though, considering the price point and quality of the powder. It's the best option on earth for beauty on a budget.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wow (and not in a good way)
I am a makeup and skincare fanatic and love trying new products. I usually buy middle of the range products but splurge on good skin care and am always up for good budget dupes. I didn't expect much from this powder given the low price but thought I'd give it a try because of the generally positive reviews. Wow. This is the worst product I think I've ever tried of any type. To start with, I couldn't even get powder to come out with the applicator sponge (included) or my own powder brush. I actually checked to see if it was sealed with plastic over the compact - nope, just practically glued in there. Once I got it out, I couldn't believe the result. It clumped up so badly upon application that it looked like I had strips of skin peeling off my face, and I don't have dry skin. I use the lightest shade of foundation in every brand - some don't even make a shade light enough for my skin - and this color was pure white against my skin. I'm a teacher, and it looked like I had rubbed chalk on my face. That actually would have had better results as I was going to take a photo for comedic value, but my face started burning so badly within minutes that I had to take it off completely. I don't have sensitive skin either. I honestly am speechless. I've tried hundreds of products, and I can't think of one in any category that is as profoundly bad as this powder. I still don't know if this is a joke or what, but I can't recommend it. 😬

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
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.
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.
Chels from Birmingham
Love this finishing powder mattefying and lasts all day
She from Washington
This stuff works so great. Have only used it twice now and this is a must have
As good as high end
Kristie from Oh
This HD powder works great and I see no difference between it and high end, expensive powders!
I would buy this product again
Carina from Sacramento
I really like this setting powder. I previously used to use the Urban Decay All Night setting spray, but thought I would try this out and I am such a fan. I found that I like the feel of this powder more than spray. I have gotten many compliments about how smooth, glowy, and nice my skin looks (combination of too faced foundation and this setting powder) with this on. SInce it is still cold out my face has been dry. I will update this review when summer comes to see how it works when I get sweaty and oily.
Pris from Herriman UT
it worked great!! my only complain is that it didnt come with the white circle pad, that you apply the product with.. even though it shows in the picture & has a spot underneath for it, but didnt have it in there.. Also, that it made my undereyes look white in pics although it didnt in person.
i am actually pleasantly surprised how well this works!!
Pris from Utah
i use this to set my concealer. actually works really well. my only con, is that i feel like even though i didnt use much, i feel like when pictures were taken.. it made my under eyes look way white. ( even though they didnt look white in person)
Great product, Missing applicator
Maria júlia from naugatuck
I loved the product, really good but if you are going to say to put something there, then do it did NOT come with a sponge.But over all the product is really good.
My 2nd one
LH from San Diego

I Love it.!!
S H A Y from Seattle, Washington
So I was so excited to try this powder but once I opened it there isn't no sponge as it Written in the description but overall it definitely work for me.!
Val from Harlingen
Really smoothes the skin and covers pores.
I would not buy again didn't even come with a applicator.
Liberty from WA
This product is pigmented but comes on cakey. No applicator inside like most powders have.
Not a smooth finish
Pdxagogo from portland, Oregon
Is isn't one of elf's stars. It was grainy and applied uneven. I am still grappling with the purpose of a this type of product and question its benefits.
It makes it stay
Ali from Sarasota FL
My Foundation inever stayed like it does with this finishing powder
My go-to powder! Saves oily skin!
Becca from Albany, NY
I love this powder! I had it in a pressed form first then repurchased the loose version which I like a bit better. I tried this against the Fenty powder and other expensive ones such as the one from Tarte. Absolutely amazing it is a great dupe for the Fenty one and doesn't leave my under eyes dry. I have oily-combo skin and it kept my face mattified and smooth throughout a crazy day at pride. Love it! Will be repurchasing!
Great product for the money!
Kendra from Loveland, CO
I love this setting powder. It's my favorite "drugstore" type setting powder! It does have tendency to leave a white cast over the skin so I have to be careful about the amount I use. But it truly helps my makeup stay put on my oily skin!
Broke as soon as I opened it but it does set my concealer
KayaPapaya from Huntsville, AL
It broke as soon as I opened it but yeah it does set my concealer I wouldn't recommend anyone buying it because there are ones you can buy that won't break
Sam from Austin
i received this without the little puff. a little disappointed because its so hard looking for a single puff, good quality within a product. but the powder is amazing.
sets under eye without creasing
If X Equals Why from United States
I LOVE this for setting under my eyes. It is the best setting powder I've ever used for the under eye area. It blurs the creases and 'fine lines' on my 50+ skin which is huge. It also doesn't add any color or sparkle. I use it mostly to set Benefit Boi-ing (use that to hide dark circles). Have also used with IT Bye Bye Under Eye and numerous other concealers. Only powder I've been able to use that doesn't cause creasing or caking, or doesn't accentuate the crepiness I already have. And I have tried A LOT of high end setting powders. None of them beat this one under my eyes.
