Hello guys! Today I have a beauty bargain to share with you. I’ve been using this powder for a while and I wanted to do a review on it!
- Price: $4
- Cruelty free and 100% vegan!
- Translucent pressed powder
Promise: Create a balanced and radiant complexion that is beautiful and healthy. The lightweight formula evens out skin tone and absorbs excess oil, and sheer formula brightens, mattes and neutralizes the skin.
I thought that this product really did live up to the promises. I love this for setting my foundation, I use a dewy finish foundation (I have drier skin) and once I layer this over it, it becomes a satiny – matte finish and I love how it looks. It is sheer and the colors don’t show up, the powder becomes translucent on your skin. It is very finely milled and feels very smooth and silky on your skin. It will absorb excess oil, but it won’t keep you exceptionally matte all day. If you do have oily skin, be cautious about purchasing, it won’t keep you matte all day but it might be a good touch up powder.
The packaging is sleek and compact, it also has a huge mirror which I love for travel or touching up during the day. I really love this powder because I have fair skin so it doesn’t look ashy on me, if you have warmer toned skin I would recommend you try the Elf tone correcting powder in warm which will work a lot better for your skin.
I would swatch this but it is just a translucent powder and doesn’t really show up!
- Sets foundation well
- leaves a matte to satin finish
- very cheap/cruelty free/vegan
- finely milled and very smooth
- doesn’t get cakey
- fills in smaller pores for a nice finish
- This won’t keep you super matte all day if you have oily skin
- This shade will show up ashy on deeper skin tones, get the warmer toned version instead if you have tan skin.
Those are my thoughts on this little drugstore gem. I really like this powder and I use it every day. Let me know down in the comments if you have tried ELF and if you like any of their products!
