Absolutely amazing setting powder. I looked into one of these white HD powders when I was struggling with my skin; I am truly so pale that most translucent powders are too dark for me. This powder is a godsend for my oily skin. It keeps me matte all day long, applies very easily, adds just a touch of lightness to my skin tone after foundation that only helps (I do add a good bit though, I imagine if you used a lighter hand that it wouldn't do this), and it presses seamlessly into my foundation.

This is a perfect dupe for Make Up Forever's HD powder. It has the same ingredients and looks and feels exactly the same. It works really well and doesn't sink into fine lines and pores. It also smooths and blurs little imperfections. I use it over my foundation (Dior Forever Flawless) and it gives me a beautiful finish. However, if you use too much, you run the risk of looking very pale because the powder itself is white although if you use the correct amount, it's invisible on the skin. So be sparing when applying it. I can't believe I ever spent $30 for the MUF powder when for $6, the ELF powder does the same exact thing! Who knew? I'm so glad I found a makeup guru's tutorial on youtube that recommended the ELF product. And I could swear that there's actually more product in the ELF package. So good benefits all around. I definitely recommend this powder. You don't need to spend more for the same thing:)

I have both the regular white one and the Shimmer shade. Yes I know, shimmer and by choice:)
Since the white one is well covered here as a very good alternative for the price to other HD powders, I will write about the shimmer shade.
Yes, it does have the sparkles but not as bad as you think. You want to have a good laugh, I try the extent of sprinkles by seeing my face in car's side window mirror in the sun.
If you use it over a matte foundation, it will give you some dewiness.
It did not add any oiliness look to my face. And the sprinkles did not last long either.
It is very similar to the Hard Candy Tiki highlighter (which I have and it's hard to find at the store shelf) if you use it on your cheekbones.
I place tape on little more than half of the box and it does not pour out ( just like the white one).
Would I buy it again, I can't, it's a lot of product!

First I put on my foundation...
Then a foundation pressed poweder
Then I put of of this on with a fluffy brush

and it helps a TONNNN!

I'm less shiny and greasy after a 12 Hr Day.

It's cheap and works great. Just tap some powder into the lid and take a fluffy brush and swirl...tap and swipe it all over your face.

Best loose setting powder i've ever used. I tried the «makeupforever HD loose powder» thinking it would be better quality since it's almost 4X more expensive, but I still prefer the E.L.F one. It keeps my skin matte longer!

-It keeps my oily skin matte all day long without looking cakey or drying it.
-It's translucent so it doesnt change the color of your liquid fondation.
-Leave a silky finish on skin that make the application of my blush, bronzer & highlight much easier.
- Super affordable

* TRICKS : I PUT A LITTLE BIT OF POWDER ON THE CAP OF THE PACKAGE, THEN TAKE A LITTLE AMOUNT OF PRODUCT ON MY SIGMA F80 BRUSH, AND I TAP OFF THE EXCESS BEFORE PUTTING IT TO MY FACE TO AVOID USING TOO MUCH. *

This powder is amaZing it left my skin nice and matte not dull or cakey you have to be light handed with it though or it will leave a white cast the only thing I hate is the packing it's bulky and you definey have to be careful with it or it gets messy but I love and btw the price was $6 you can't beat

I originally saw this when my younger sister was looking for a bb cream and powder to help with her oily skin and breakouts, since shes at the age where shes too young for foundation but she wants to be able to cover some breakouts. I showed her this powder since it was cheap and she could get it with her own money. I tried it out one day and HOLY MOLY I love it! I have always had trouble with using pressed powders to set my foundation, they kinda just sat ontop and looked like powder. I have used the MUFE HD loose powder (I cant remember the exact name) and I paid $22 CAD for a small travel size of it. This e.l.f one is exactly the same thing except with a much better price tag. Once you get near the end it isn't as finely milled (may see some small white balls) but for how little it cost I can definitely deal with that. It sets my makeup and makes it look like skin, it helps my foundation last a lot longer.

I don't understand the hype over this product. Sure it's a good dupe for MUFE, but it's just not doing anything for me.

Pros:
cheap
doesn't leave a white cast

Cons:
Messy
No staying powder
Makes me oily
