I love love love this. Cannot live without it! The colours can be used individually but i just swirl them all with the ELF studio complexion brush and sweep all over my face when i want to mattify my oily skin! It really works and for £3.50 there is now way you can go wrong. If you have oily/combination skin then you should give this a go :-)
Ill keep this review short. OF NO USE. Rubbbbbbish.
At first I wasn't all that impressed--I was using it over tinted moisturizer and it acted like a normal powder (which is fine just not what I wanted it to do). This morning though, I was tired, skipped the TM and just used this. Hours later my skin tone still looks nice and even! I'm considering skipping TM more often!
This was one of my first E.L.F purchases and I really do not know what made me buy it but I am really HAPPY I did. This works as a great setting powder and controls oil extremely well! Most other long wearing powders don't really do much to controls my oil but this one does and I rarely have to touch up!! AMAZING. Also to me this makes my foundation (even full coverage formulas) look natural on my skin!! BUT I only use the green and yellow colors and buff it all over my skin. Because I have warm undertones the pink and blue shades (even though they come off mostly white) make me look weird and ghostly looking. I find it funny that only the yellow and green shades are used up. So half of the product is halfway used and the other half is barely touched. This is my HG for powders and will continue to repurchase...I only wish I had the option of buying only the green and yellow colors.
I picked this up on a whim, didn't really know what to expect. I swatched each color individually when I got home. Each color came off as white so I didn't really see how it would be a corrector. I was having one of those "too lazy to put on make up" days and so I just wore moisturizer and this powder over my face. I swirled all the colors together and lightly dusted it on my face and it gave me a ghostly white appearance. Luckily, I wasn't going out that day. I didn't have any concealer on, thinking the green would neutralize my redness. Nope, not one bit. I thought it could also serve as a mattifying powder. It was okay. Not that great either. Felt like I had to touch up quite a bit. Oh, and this product caused me to break out. ): I got a a few humungojungo pimples around my nose after being clear for like 2 months. T_T the packaging is nice, but can easily slip from your hands if you're not careful. really nice big mirror.
for 3 dollar, its a pretty good product. but didn't work for me besides break me out some and make me look ghostly.
I bought this from an Australian company who resells ELF products. I didn't think that this could be used as a skin tone corrector from all the reviews that I had seen from youtube. Fortunately for my NW20 skin, not only did it even out my skin tone, it was also a fanatastic finishing powder. I've ditched my old powder and this one has taken over for my everyday look.
Pros: Good as a skin tone corrector for those with pale skin, doesn't make you feel cakey, big mirror, sleek packaging and sets makeup well
Cons: Can be a bit powdery, lots of fall out, fades quite quickly throughout the day, wouldn't recommend it for people with dry skin and it might look white or really light on darker skin tones.
My main gripe with this is the packaging. It is in a sleek black compact but opens tooooo easily.
Other than that I like this stuff to keep my oily shine at bay. I have to be careful not to overapply because I look kind of gray-cast. The price is good, and I actually like that there's a lot of fall-out. I like that for translucent powders because it means the product is actually nice and loose for setting.
A lot of product for the retail price of $3, I will most likely purchase again.
My face tends to have a lot of redness in it, especially on the cheeks. This year money has been tight so I had to find an alternative to MakeupForever's green color-correcting primer and I came across this product. For only $3, I was very surprised to how well it works. I swirl all 4 colors together and apply with a large brush over my entire face after my creme foundation. It sets the makeup, mattifies my shiny areas, and evens out my complexion. The only downfall is that if my face is particularly dry that day or I don't properly moisturize, the powder brings out the little dry flakes on my nose and chin. Would definitely buy again, it's too cheap to pass up.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!! Totally love the Studio range of ELF and have only found one thing I wasn't overly fond of and that was the mineral primer but I've not given up on it yet - perhaps it was the foundation...if not I'm not going to worry about it - £6?...bargain!!!
Anyway...Complexion perfection...fantastic... Fine soft powder...doesn't drastically alter the shade of my skin ie ghostly or anything, controls oil, cheap as chips, fantastic packaging - looks so expensive!! What more can a girl ask for?!
I am very fair and I very much like this product. It controls oil very well and I actually think it corrects my redness too. Overall I will buy again.
