I liked this product enough to buy a backup, but I have very sensitive skin (rosacea?) that gets red and irritated if I'm not careful. And I was using this to cover up those areas. I just decided that a talc-based product was probably not the best thing for my sensitive areas, so I gave the backup I had bought to my mother. People with normal skin can probably use this however they want to with no problems, it is a nice versatile powder, and the packaging is especially good for the price.

When i saw this on elf website i was like, i have to have this and at 3.50 i was like why not! ive used it 3 or 4 times and i just dont even know if it works, im pale and but im quite pinkish but all it seems to do is come off just white and it certainly doesnt work by using the colours individually. I wouldnt buy it again but why not try it as its dirt cheap!

I wouldn't buy this again and would give it away to a friend in a heartbeat. This is definitely a product for fair-skinned ladies. I have medium skin tone and this is truly like white powder on me. In addition to the powdery whiteness, I didnt notice any brightening effect or toning down of redness...

I really like this compact. I have only ever used one correcting powder before (Lily Lolo's peep-o yellow undereye concealer. Which I would say is probably slighty better at covering undereye circles) But having this in a compact is really useful, as it means I can carry it around easilly.

I use the green colour on its own all over my cheeks to reduce redness, then the yellow underneath my eyes, but then I mix the others together and brush lightly over my skin, and it just makes my skin look bright and awake :)

I got this a few days ago and I really do like it.I agree with the reviewer below that the colours are very pale but they do work on me.I have very slight red cheeks but after using this over my loose powder,my skin looks neutral and ready for blush.I've not tried the colours on their own yet but I will.I like the compact too,very posh :o)

When I first saw this on the website, I fell in love! It's so cute - pressed powder in four different cheery pastel hues in a sleek black compact. when I received it in the mail, however, I was very disappointed. The bright pastel colors on the website translated into pale, barely-there colors in real life. When applied they look nearly white. I'm VERY pale and no matter how I apply this, I look like a ghost. I've heard of people using the powders individually for color correction but I can't see how that would work, even when applied by themselves the colors look white. The powder is also hard to blend, no matter what I do the powder just sits on top of my skin and look chalky.

Not to mention the packaging is poor. The large mirror, which I liked at first, fell out when I accidentally dropped the compact on my soft, carpeted floor. When I picked it up I saw the mirror is held on by a thin strip of double-sided tape. I love E.L.F. and I wanted to love this, but, this is one product I won't be buying again.
