I use a few layers of a very emollient concealer under my eyes everyday. I am huge fan of powders created especially to set concealer under the eyes, my favorite was Benefit Powderfage, but that has long since been discontinued. It was very pricey, but I could not live without it. Thank goodness for LM Secret Brightening Powder, I don't know what I would have done if it hadn't existed at the time. But, LMSBP has never been as good as the Benefit product. The Benefit powder had a pink undertone, which brightened my undereyes as well as setting my concealer all day.
The LMSBP does do a great job of keeping my concealer from creasing or smudging, but the shades leave a lot to be desired. #1 is very white, and #2 too yellow, though I am sure they work beautifully for people with skin tones other than mine. I am happy to have discovered this E.L.F. product, which has a nice pink undertone to it, so it does not appear too stark or dark underneath my eyes. In terms of performance, I can definitely say that this product is on par with all of the undereye setting powders I have tried. The only drawback is the few chunky glitter particles they decided to add. Honestly, they are very easy to knock off with your brush, but I wish they hadn't added them in the first place. They do nothing but make you look like you have glitter under your eyes. :P
You do get much less product compared to LMSBP, but even if you bought three of these you would be saving a ton of money. If I lived neared to an E.L.F. retailer, I would buy this product over LMSBP, but I am in an area where the E.L.F. is not widely sold.
Stops my concealer from creasing for the most part and makes my under eyes look brighter, really good, especially for the price.
I love this product for setting my undereye concealer because it brightens the area further. The teeny tiny sparkly flecks of powder helps camouflage the dark areas like it says in their description on their website. I'm very impressed with it that sometimes I apply a little on my cupid's bow too. It is very affordable and long lasting. I would repurchase and absolutely recommend it!
I love this stuff! After I apply my cream/liquid concealer I shake some of this on top of a lighter powder foundation (one I use for under my eyes) I blend the two powders together with a 'beauty blender', spritz until saturated (toner/fix+/setting spray) and tap under my eyes. Gives you that 'refreshed and well slept' look. Not matte but not chunky and glittery or frosty either. Packaging is nice and sleek and the holes are kept small enough where it doesn't get super messy if you store it right. I use it like a salt shaker and the perfect amount comes out every time.
I really like this powder! It sets my under eye concealer really well and adds some brightness to my under eye area.
This powder does have some sparkle in it. It's very iridescent, but the glitter particles are large. I apply this using a fluffy eye blending brush. I dip my brush into the powder, swirl it into the cap, and tap the powder off on my hand to get off some of the glitter. When I do this, I find that most of the glitter comes out of the powder and doesn't transfer to my under eye area.
This keeps my concealer set longer than if I didn't set it, but I wish that it lasted all day. This did not make my under eye concealer crease, so I can appreciate that!
I will definitely buy this again. The glitter isn't a problem for me as most of it comes off of the brush. It's a must have!
Fantastic!! I use all high end products so I bought a few elf things just to try them but not expecting to love them, but I fell inlove with this!! Only like $5 and works fantastic, one of my holy grail products
This is a billion times better than the Well Rested powder, by Bare Minerals. It spreads evenly, sets the concealer and has a little bit of blurry effect. Don't let the sparkles scare you away: they are unnoticeable once applied :) And it costed 3 freaking dollars.
I would definitely repurchase this. It sets my concealer and it doesn't cake up or look too light. I'm pretty tan (MAC NC42 / C5, Nars Barcelona) and this is undetectable on me. It blends in seamlessly.
There is a little shimmer in this but you don't see it once it's applied. It helps subtly brighten the under eye without looking sparkly.
I was planning to buy the Bare Minerals Well Rested powder but I don't think I'll need to w/ this. Cheap and good quality. Can't beat it.
