This is my go-to setting powder. I tried the original (colorless) formula and I liked it, but I prefer this one, since it looks more natural on the face. It has a slightly peachy/pink tint and some very fine shimmery particles that you can see when you look at the powder in the jar, but on the skin it doesn't really show up at all (at least on my very fair skin.) Recently ELF changed the …Read more

I wanted to like the product because I have The translucent one & went with this one since they didn't have their translucent powder which I liked a lot and I was hoping the formula & effect would be the same but it wasn't!. Hated it! The glitter is awful & I think it's more for fair toned ppl. It does make my skin look soft but it's not practical cause it …Read more

I wanted to like this, I really did. But it has glitter flecks in it. NOT what I want in loose powder. I prefer a glow. However I mixed a tiny bit of this into my HD powder and it added a nice effect. But I tossed most of it. Skip this and buy the Illuminating palette

This is a fantastic powder. The name says it all. It blurs fine lines and pores and makes skin look and feel insanely soft. On days I don't wear foundation or concealed, I use this powder and it makes my skin look perfect. The only complaint I've got is the messy packaging. The lid doesn't like to close all the way without a fight, so powder escapes when I don't want it to …Read more

I'm a little confused by my experience with this in comparison to the other reviews. On me, it was quite glittery. I could even see the individual flecks of sparkle.

As there's no way I could use this on my face, I tried applying a bit on my upper chest and shoulder area to see if it might be useful to use as a sort of highlighter there. But nope, it still screamed glitter …

I think this powder is labeled "Shimmer", just to be clear.

This powder is the BEST. For $6, you cannot go wrong. It adds a beautiful soft finish with a hint of a glow; the shimmer is very subtle, although not at all "sparkly". The powder is very finely milled and I use an Ecotools brush to apply it. I am never displeased at the finish it provides, even if …

Picked this up when I ran out of my Laura Mercier loose powder as the $38 price was starting to be a bit much. This is a very pale pink powder with a very subtle glow/luminosity. E.L.F. seems to mill their powders very finely, this is on par w/ MU Forever's HD powder in terms of consistency. Doesn't add an sparkle or glitter, just a nice glow to the face. Comes in a square, black …Read more

This is my hg powder! I use this with a mixture of foundation and moisturizer, and I apply this with my Ecotools angled kabuki brush or with a damp beauty blender. I actually purchased this by accident, I was trying to get the translucent powder, but this powder really does add luminescence! I originally applied it with a Sonia kashuk powder brush, but that one was falling to pieces and I started …Read more
