I really like this product. It is kind of similar to the HD powder. I honestly do prefer the HD powder, but this is pressed and has a much less bulky packaging. Its a very finely milled, matte powder.

I own this in the shade Warm, and as far as "tone correcting" this really does nothing. It's white.

Like a lot of people have mentioned this is kind of chalky and gives a sort of white cast (maybe not the best for darker skin tones), however not really the same way the HD powder gives a white cast. This really gives me a vintage feeling if that makes any sense. It gives a matte, powdered finish like what you would see in the 40s and 50s. This might make it sound like horrible quality, but I really like this finish for a vintage look and will use this alone or as my setting powder (with a heavy hand) if that is what I'm going for. This "cast" powdery finish will however disappear quickly if applied with a light hand.

I'm going to give this 3 lippies because I prefer the HD powder so I don't really reach for this unless I'm going for a certain look, or if I'm traveling.

I have this in the cool version.

I really like the fact that all the colors are in quadrants. You can pick a color you want to use or swirl them all together. The colors are very pale so I don't think they do anything in terms of color correcting. It does brighten my skin though when used with a light hand. If you apply too much, this does make your skin look chalky.

Unfortunately, this maybe be breaking me out :(

I mean it's definitely not the best powder in terms of quality. It does appear chalky and it will emphasize dryness but for $3??? I'm don't regret purchasing at all.

Very chalky looking on the skin.
Did not blend well.
Product felt very cheap and of low quality.
Did not do anything as far as correcting.
Tried both shades and both were a fail.

i use this every time i do my face.

i notice a lot of the reviews mention it being too white, or leaving a chalky finish - i haven't noticed that but then i'm very pale, and like a matte finish, so i find this to be perfect.

i use a huge fluffy brush to swirl around and mix all the colours and dust it all over my face after using foundation (i use this on top of both mineral/powder foundation and traditional liquid, or tinted moisturizer types). whether or not the green does anything to help my perpetually-pink cheeks (why, yes, i have been known to use mineral concealer powder as "blush" to hide the pinkness...), i like the way the overall presence of the powder makes my skin look.

i pick up another one or two of these every time i place an e.l.f. order.

HG status for me I love this stuff I've used the physicians formula tone correcting powder which I like as well but lets be real it's around $12-$15 compared to $3 and this works just as well for me I typically use loose powder to set my makeup but when traveling I carry this instead since its pressed and won't end up all over everything and has the same effect I'd recommend anyone to give it a try for sure

I use this powder every and it works great. It doesn't irritate my sensitive and acne prone skin! I will absolutely repurchase!

(This is a review on the cool-toned powder as I have not tried the warm one.)

I keep buying this powder again and again. The quality is amazing and it's super cheap. I use all of the colors swirled together to set my face makeup and I love it. I feel like I look brighter and more alive when I wear it and my overall skin tone appears more even. The powder itself is finely milled which makes my skin look flawless. It smooths over my imperfections (especially large pores) and leaves an airbrushed look. I've used it on it's own for a long time, but I recently have started using a setting spray and now it's even better.

Something to keep in mind is that though it's not a very pigmented powder, it can sometimes give a white cast or chalky look when applied all over. This is no problem for me, as I'm ghostly white, but it might be better to use the colors individually if you aren't so fair. The setting spray really helps cut down on the white cast.

I bought this when I was unsuccessfully looking for the NYX color correcting palette, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. I originally wanted an affordable color corrector to deal with redness on my nose (my nose is pretty big so I get uneven sun!) and under eye circles.

The website states the colors should be blended together, but I think it makes more sense to use individual colors on areas you want to correct. I apply my concealer and foundation, then use a concealer brush to set problem areas with one or two colors of powder. The yellow tone worked great for my purple under eye darkness. My eyes have never looked so bright. The green still left me with some noticeable redness, but it was a definite improvement.

Overall, I was able to get much better results with less product. I didn't have to build up concealer like I normally do, which is the biggest benefit for me because I prefer very light facial coverage. While this wasn't a problem under my eyes, the powder was slightly more chalky than I prefer for my nose.

This is a decent setting powder, but it doesn't do what it's supposed to. I like the fact that it doesn't look valet or chalky, and it does help to set my foundation, but it does absolutely nothing in terms of color correction. Will not repurchase.

I use this everyday and I it really is nice I use the yellow shade to set my under eyes and on days that I'm looking extra shiny I use it on my whole face and it does leave a a white powdery layer on top but I use the elf setting spray and the powderyness goes away
