I can't remember where I saw this, but I'm so glad I did. I picked mine up from Target a couple weeks ago and could not wait to try it out. I bought the cool toned compact to help tone down the redness that I often get due to having acne-prone skin.
How I use it:
I use my eco-tools fluffy powder brush and swirl it around in all four colors, then lightly dab it all over my face to set my foundation and concealer. Once I'm done appying my blush and bronzer, I apply it again using light sweeping motions with my e.l.f. Kabuki brush.
Pros: I haven't noticed it settling into my pores, which is always nice because I have HUGE pores, and it seems to help tone down some of the discoloration in my skin. I might try to use the colors individually to also see how that works out. I love the packaging of this because it's so sturdy and sleek. It comes with a good sized mirror which is nice for traveling, and the powder itself is good too. Not to mention that the price for this is only $3. Can't beat that!
Cons: I have found that if I accidentally go too harsh with the powder, it cane make me look washed out and powdery, however, once I got the hang of it, everything seemed fine. Even with the second application.
Overall I really like this product and would buy it again.
Love this powder. I have it in cool, and I use the yellow and pink shades under my eyes and the blue green shades on my face where I have redness. Doesn`t look too white if you use it lightly and doesn`t look chalky either. Great price ($3.00) great sturdy packaging and lasts a long time!
I found this by accident, and I'm really glad I did. I don't think it corrects any tone, but it's an excellent setting powder. It doesn't settle into fine lines and I can't see it on my skin. I thought the colors would oxidize or look odd on my pale skin, but it's invisible. And cheap. And doesn't break me out.
HG powder right here. I have crazy oily skin and this product with one swipe eliminates that. It never looks like I actually have powder on my face, but it soaks up the oil like a champ. For $3 I am in love. The packaging is sleek and even has a mirror included which makes it good to carry with you. If you are searching for a day powder, DO NOT HESITATE TO TRY THIS.
So I bought this because (besides the incredibly cheap price) I have a lot of blotchy red areas on my face and was hoping this would help even out my skin if layered on top of my foundation. It is a decent sized compact with large mirror and has four colored sections of powder: yellow, pale blue, pale green and pink.
This product worked as a good setter for my foundation and did get rid of any sleek areas on my face when applied with a fluffy brush. However I just didn't feel like it did any tonal correcting. Maybe I should try it with a kabuki brush swirled around, but I tried to swirl it around with my powder brush and I didn't really notice any differences in the tone of my skin.
Great product with outstanding shine control at a super low price. If ELF disclosed all the ingredients on their website, then this is also a quite healthy product.
This works great and I couldn't believe it was only $3.00! Comes in a good sized compact with full mirror. Glad I found this!
I really love elf products. this was only 3$ and it's amazing! I bought it as an impulse buy, it looked nice because I have redness problems and for only three bucks it was so worth it. I put it on after my foundation and concealer, and i see a difference immediately. it stays all day too. I usually top that with a mineral veil too.
This stuff is great, I always use it to set my foundation. I just swipe my kabuki brush in the entire thing and mix all of the colours together on my face in a swirling motion. I have it in the colour "cool". My skin is pretty oily and I feel like this helps absorb the oil and it keeps me less oily throughout the day. I used to use loose white powder to set my foundation but I switched to this because its just soo much easier. The packaging is also great, I keep it in my makeup bag and it never opens. If my skin starts looking oily, I just touch up with this and it gives me a nice refreshed look. For $3 you can't go wrong!
I purchased this in my search for a cheaper alternative to UD De-slick mattifying powder.
It's okay as a setting powder but the colors aren't really tone correcting. The pan has squares of yellow, blue, pink and green tinged powder. Maybe I'm just not using it correctly but I think the colors are too pigmented.
The compact is really, really nice though. It is sturdy plastic and it's a really good size, considering the price especially.
