I have an acne prone combination to oily complexion and found this powder fantastic. It is definitely too sheer to be used by itself if you want coverage but it is a great foundation setter. I use it over my foundation daily and found that my face looks less oily all day. You can either use all the colours at once all over the face as a face poweder or use the specific colours on different problem areas of the face over your concealer before applying foundation. I already bought my second one! Would definitely recommend!

I don't know how other people use this, but I use it as a finishing powder on my tinted moisturizer.

It keeps me oil-free as well as evening out my complexion (hence the name). You could even use the individual colors on your problem areas.

Worth every penny but it really didn't do anything spectacular.

I was surprised to see that people were wearing this as a powder foundation, on me it makes my skin look practically translucent! I wear it as a finishing powder to give my blush, foundation, highlight, and contour a natural finish but it can be too powdery, I have to spray setting spray after applying and it's a perfect natural look.

This one is really not good for dry skin, and acne prone skin.
It doesnt work at all on my dry skin, it just gets everywhere, and piles up, and makes my face look even more dry..

Great packaging, huge mirror, super cheap, but not for my kind of skin

I think of this more for ladies who want the porcelain skin look. I did, however, use a bit of bronzer after this to just warm up my face a little around the jaw and hairline. It did cover some permanent redness on my cheeks, and made my fact look smoother, pores smaller.

The only real downside is that it doesn't last but a few hours and u need to reapply. I myself wasn't wearing foundation at the time. I am having trouble finding the exact match for my skin and have almost given up.

I absolutely love this powder! It was only $3 which makes it even better. However, I don't like applying this all over my face. I'll take the ELF complexion brush, get a little bit of powder on the brush, and set my under eye concealer. Also, I will dab a little bit of the blue and green powder on any red spots and hides them very well.

I am in love with ELF in general, I always stock up on their products when I go to Target. Their products tend to be hits and misses though; some are absolutely amazing for the price, and others aren't amazing at all. But this one in particular has become a stand-by for me. I have a huge problem with shine on my nose, and this powder mattifies my face like a dream. Just a sweep of it over my face and my face just looks better somehow. I can't say much about the lasting powder as I have never put it to the test but it's like $3 so for the price it's pretty dang nifty. I keep this in my purse with a cute powder puff as an alternative to oil blotting sheets. I personally don't like using oil blotting sheets because for some reason to me it's embarassing when rubbing it on in a public bathroom and you can see all the oil coming off. Eeeew! So I would definately recommend this to ANYONE, cause hey it's only $3! If you don't like it than you can just keep it around for emergencies.

i love this product!! it goes on great before and after my foundation!!! But i honestly do my concelear than set my whole face with this powder and then put on my foundation and it works great...My face is matte!!! I only think that the powder can come off a lil too white...I am already as light as it is and if i just use this without some bronzer i look even lighter!!! But i definately love it and i hit pan!! I will definately return for more!

The packaging is nice and sturdy, with a really big mirror.

The powder is very chalky and is very messy. When I put my brush into it, it just goes everywhere.

For setting my foundation this powder is okay, but it doesn't keep my t-zone matte all day, I definitely have to touch up!

On bare skin it evens out my skintone, but it doesn't get rid of all the discolourations. And it leaves a white-ish cast if too much powder is used.

The idea of a "coloured" powder is nice, but it can only work one way: Only if you use the green powder on skin that shows redness, the pink and yellow powder on you undereye circles, and the blue powder on yellow-ish areas of the skin, it can work, because the colour of the poweder will counteract the discolourations of the skin.
But if you mix them all together, obviously that won't do anything because the colours of the powder cancel each other out! Makes sense, right?

So - Good idea, rubbish execution.

Wow, I love this powder! It makes my skin glow, hiding the MAJORITY of my imperfections. A lot of the time i just use this without foundation to even out my skin (only when I don't have breakouts) and it works just fine. I can tell that the powder will last a while.. I have used it everyday since mid Nov and have made no dent in it whatsoever. The only issue I have it that it can get messy... sometimes the powder goes everywhere in the compact but it is easily fixable. I would definately repurchase.
