Most Helpful Positive
This powder is amazing value and have found it to be just as good as lot of high end products that do the same thing. I have semi dry skin, but I don't find that it accentuates these areas and I also haven't experienced any flashback in photos when I've been wearing it. It lasts a long time and I never have to use much of it to see a difference. The only negative aspect is the packaging because it is very easy to spill the powder and make a mess.

I only use this to set where I have used concealer and this is very drying. yes, it sets the concealer but also dries the skin.
Great valuePowder is super finely milled and you only need to use the smallest amount to take away some shine and set your make up in place.
Almost perfectThis is the first setting powder I've ever bought! I was looking for something to set my foundation and concealer under my eyes & also keep my makeup on for longer. I was really surprised this give the finish on my face a really soft texture. Although it does accentuate wrinkles. I also find I have to apply a few layers to get the finish I want, the coverage isn't fantastic. For those reasons I'm ...Read More

So fine!Very finely milled powder, feels luxurious quality and lasts nicely throughout day!
Slight flashback under eye area, rest of face okay.
Amazing ValueThis powder is fantastic value for money, is very much like a high end version for just a fraction of the price. Highly recommend!
Decent for the priceThis is a good powder for the price, I use it to set my under eyes and to slightly carve my cheekbones. The downside, it gives FLASHBACK! You have been warned, I learnt the hard way. Other than that, this is great but there are better powders out there
Just like a high end productThis powder is amazing value and have found it to be just as good as lot of high end products that do the same thing.

Soft and GlowSuper soft textured powder that applies effortlessly. Doesn't seem to shift foundation and or concealer. Once applied, you will notice a slight soft, matte glow upon your face that looks very natural. It is a forgiving product as any excess powder becomes invisible. A single touch up during the day can be beneficial but not essential, if you want to keep that nice gloss look. For $16, you can not ...Read More
Nice when I need itI don’t often wear liquid foundation but this is my go to when I do. Fine and light enough it sits on the skin nicely and helps make my make up go the distance.
Value for moneyThis product sets my makeup well and controls shine on my oily forehead for hours. I do find that you need to spend a bit of time blending it or it can look a little white. As others have said this product is not suitable for flash photography but overall I think it’s great value for money.
set to go!This product has saved my makeup game. I apply it lightly all over my face in the morning and when I hit the gym at 5pm - my make up is still there!!! It’s so lightweight and soft, doesn’t clump and dissolves/sets your makeup perfectly. I can’t live without it now.
Better than high end productI have dry skin so I don't often use powder. However when i do this powder is so fine and great on my skin. it doesn't clog my pores settles nicely once applied with a powder brush. For me its better than high end product I've used in the past.
Great everyday product.A really nice powder for everyday setting and baking. Light weight and very finely milled. It does have flash back when using flash photography. Affordable for an everyday translucent powder.
flashback centralan alright powder for setting the face. super finely milled and really bad flashback so would avoid for flash photography
Ok for the priceThis is good for the price however the container is very messy, product gets everywhere. Powder itself is very light and translucent
Great!Very fine powder, doesn’t create flashback and is great for baking! Also doesn’t have a strong smell which is a win in my book
Very fineFinely milled so it’s got a nice consistency, didn’t notice any flashback. It’s really soft on the skin, it’s affordable. Really nice to bake in also!
AffordableI have purchased countless brands of translucent powders over the years, each one promising to stretch out the longevity of my makeup and stop it creasing etc.. The majority do what they claim and the Elf translucent powder is no exception.
Don’t think that because it’s cheaper than the others that it doesn’t do the same...it’s perfect. It’s a nice fine powder.
I do all...Read More
Great setting powderVery nice, so fine and leaves skin super smooth. I don’t get white flashback with this one as I have with others.
Can get a little messy in the packaging unfortunately
Not badThis is good for a cheap powder. It’s very silky and fine and goes on translucent
Sets well, but gives flashbackThis powder works to set and bake under eyes, however if you have dry skin, this will probably leave your skin feeling very crusty. This powder also gives you flashback!
flashbackI bought this as a beginner with high hopes. I'd been warned about the dangers of flashback and knew that the moment I put this on, I had to take a picture with flash. I was SHOCKED at how white and powdery I looked, and I even took a second photo after brushing away the powder as much as I could. Do NOT wear this if you are going out to a party with flash photos.
I’ve repurchased this countless timesI have combination skin that’s also a bit sensitive and this does a great job of setting my makeup and giving my skin a smoother look that lasts much longer than if I don’t use it. I use this every day after my powder foundation (I use a BB cream instead of liquid foundation) and before bronzer, blush and highlighter (although I’ve used it after these steps too and that was fine). You only need to...Read More
AmazingThis high def powder is a lovely quality and glides on perfectly to give an amazing finish . Highly recommend.
So smooth and silky!This makes my face so smooth... it's like silky and feels so fresh! I used the pad that's included a few times but found that it would pick up the foundation I had put on my face so instead of using the pad, I just swipe the powder with a brush. I love that the turning lid thing inside, allows you to easily control the amount that comes through the holes. It's such a great product and I highly rec...Read More
SIZE OF PRODUCT REDUCED!At the time of writing this (Dec 2018) the picture above of this product has a squarish lid - this is NOT the product you will receive. I ordered this and got a re-vamped item with a totally round lid - which is WAY SMALLER. I took a comparison photo but there is no facility on this review page to post it - but you will definitely get much less product. NOT HAPPY. I feel ripped off.
Good alternative to Laura MercierI bought this on a whim to see if the hype was real and it so is! I actually prefer it for setting the undereyes than the LM Secret Brightening powder, and it’s really cheap. A little goes a long way.
Works WellSuper cheap and works very well under my eyes to prevent creasing. Doesn't help with my oily combo skin so I don't generally set my face with this. It looks great on my pale skin but when my tan friend borrowed some she needed to buff it a little with her own powder as it looked a little pasty on her skin tone.
Already Recommended to most friendsHaving combination skin being really oily on my Tzone and dry on my cheeks. This product helped set my face soooo well during the day and lasting all night. Super affordable and allowing now sweat to melt my makeup off.
Good but doesnt last longThis is a really good powder especially at its price!! the downfall is that it doesn't last very long and after a few hours my face is oily again and I need to re apply it.
Loved itSuper cheap and worked really good!
Sets my under eyes better than anything!So far this is the only setting product I have tried that has kept my under eyes set for hours, they normally crease and look yuck straight away and I’m so happy I took a chance on this product! Sets my whole face just as well too. Smooth
SO GOOD!I have combination/dry skin. I purchased this because I was after a cheaper setting powder and I was blown away! This works really really well and makes my skin look absolutely flawless. This setting powder makes my makeup last all day and is also really good for baking under the eyes. Honestly cannot recommend this enough.
Great valueFor the price, this is actually a great powder for baking. It does not leave a white cast and leaves a really nice finish on the skin. Highly recommend it.
Great for the price pointI have combination skin and the product works well for the price! If you're prone to dry spots try not to apply too much product as it can be drying. Sets the face well and is good for any oily areas. Would absolutely recommend given the price.
One of the bestFor such a cheap powder this really packs a punch. Great for setting makeup and toning down a shiny face.
LOVE THIS FOR BAKING!I love to bake with this powder! it is so SMOOTH and makes your skin looks airbrushed and flawless. It is pretty finely milled and very cheap compared to other raved about loose translucent powders
Great valueA good price-point if you're clumsy like me and accidentally tip out a lot! The product works, but I'm going back to pressed setting powders.
Really goodThis powder is great and was my go to before the RCMA No Colour Powder. So finely milled and really good for toning down powder face products when you've been a bit too heavy handed. It is also excellent for setting the under eye area and a little goes a long way.
flashbacknot sure how other people have had such a great experience but i found it had flashback and didnt set my makeup on my oily skin. might just be me as i have very oily skin but i personally dont recommend this
Excellent PowderExcellent powder especially for the price. Finely milled, so melts into the skin. No flashback in photos. A+++
Comparable to the Laura Mercier powderThis is a really fine translucent powder, so it works perfectly for baking and preventing under eye creases.
I have heard someone compare it to the Laura Mercier powder and I totally agree. This is amazing quality for the price.
I have combination skin, and usually use this on top of Too Faced foundation and it works beautifully - does not leave a cakey look or that slight white ting...Read More
Perfect for bakingThis is a fantastic powder which lives up to all of it's claims and more. It is also incredibly affordable. The powder does leave a very slight white cast which is easily managed by setting spray and it amazing at blurring out skin imperfections.
Great setting powder at a reasonable priceI love elf products and have used the under eye setting powder for ages. This is a thicker grain powder but works great for everyday use. Doesn't seem to have flashback either which is a plus.
amazing for the price - better than you expecti used to use this everyday, especially when i was very fair. now i use it in place of my laura mercier powder if im not down to use the good stuff. it is like velvet! make sure you dust off properly though or flashback will get you
Amazing!I have oily skin and this stuff leaves my face looking soft & matte for the whole day.
It's so reasonably priced too! Definitely one I would recommend for the Makeup bag!
SoftThis leaves my skin feeling so soft unfortunately I get some flash back
GreatLeft my skin nice and soft and also matte, don't leave without it!
Okay for beginnersI love how silky my face felt after application, it was good for setting my foundation but not for baking!
No comparisonI haven't used loose setting powder before as I've never really felt the need to however since having children, my skin type has changed dramatically. I am now oily in places I didn't realise I ever would be!
As I have no comparison in terms of using loose powder to judge this by, I cannot confidently say it's better than 'brand name'. I do have to say that it's pretty decent for the ...Read More
Cheap substituteThis powder did it job but not too great because it didn’t last for too long. Also the product’s design is a bit funny so you’d get too much powder out the first time you used it.
As good as high end productsThis is a great setting powder, so soft and silky. It leaves my pores looking smaller and I don't look chalky. Will definitely try it again.
Wow!This product is amazing it can compete with the high end brands, I’ve got the Laura Mercier power and this elf powder i think is way better is feels like silk, it matifys it’s so finally milled and the price is unbeatable I love it
