This product is so-so. It generally doesn't last and I can do without all the sparkle. If it weren't for the sparkle look I would buy again, but I won't.
This is one of the best discoveries I have made for my make-up bag. Since I suffer from severe dark under eye circles, I use a lot of color correctors and concealers and need to use a powder to set these products so that they won't creep into my fine lines. This powder is amazing, it sets the concealers without drying or caking my under eye area. I use the E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush to apply and really like that it has a fluffy head more like a blending brush or a small powder brush than a concealer brush. Whatever it is, it coupled with the HD powder is an integral part of my daily make-up routine.
Ick! This would be a nice product if it weren't for the horrendous chunky glitter! I guess this is ELF's attempt at 'light diffusing'. I was expecting a subtle sheen, but the glitter is super chunky and very obvious. I really can't use this on my undereye area as it just looks silly. It's pretty much the same as ELF's standard HD powder so just use that instead - does the same job and no horrid glitter.
I bought this product and im happy I did! I have The under eye Concealer and highlighter by e.l.f. And these two products go hand in hand.
The powder itself is fine, but I'm just confused on why they would put glitter in it!
If it was just the powder, I'd definitely love this product, but honestly, with all that shimmer going on, I just can't use it on my undereye area. I just use it on my brow bone so I wont waste the product, but yeah, too much sparkle for me.
This is a fine, pale pink silica powder with a small hint of shimmer. I use it under my eyes, and I find it definitely brightens the area, as well as gives a slight "soft focus" effect, which helps hide fine lines. The shimmer is very light and not glittery at all - just luminous. I am very fair (NW15), and this works well for me, but if your skintone is darker, I can see where it might not work as well and could possibly even look chalky or grey. I mostly purchase & wear higher-end makeup, but there are some ELF products I love (obsessed with all their high-end dupes) and this is one of them. This easily performs as well as a product from Sephora. It comes in a cute little clear plastic jar with a screw-on black square lid. I really like this powder and I will definitely repurchase it. continued >>
I have been using this to set my concealer under my eyes and LOVE IT! You do not need very much to make it work.
-great at setting undereye concealer
-brightens the undereye
-doesn't live up to product expectations
Overall, this product as OK. I think it's great for setting undereye concealer, but it doesn't do much on it's own. There are chunks of glitter in this, as well as shimmer, but it isn't very noticeable, and the shimmer reflects light, which makes your undereye appear brighter. I don't think it lives up to my expectations of what this product should do, but it's not a bad product.
I REALLY like this. The difference isn't much but I can tell that it blends out my undereye concealor nicely, buffing/blurring my dark undereye circles.
The brush that came with it is also nice & soft. However, the transparent stopper doesn't pop back in as well as it pops out, so I've had issues of powder flying everywhere. :( continued >>
Ever since Benefit discontinued Powerflague, I've been looking for a replacement. When I first got this I thought it may be similar, because it is pink in color, then I swatched it and it has straight up glitters in it! If anyone knows a good dupe for Powderflague, please message me.I've tried other silica powders, which I like, but they cast a white shadow and have a reverse racoon effect in flash photos. I want to avoid that, because it ages you like nobody's business. I had that white cast under my eyes in my work ID picture and it's embarrassing.
