Just like a high end product

Alex

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.

flashback central

monique

an alright powder for setting the face. super finely milled and really bad flashback so would avoid for flash photography
  1. So fine!

    Ari

    Very finely milled powder, feels luxurious quality and lasts nicely throughout day!
    Slight flashback under eye area, rest of face okay.
  2. Amazing Value

    Sophie

    This powder is fantastic value for money, is very much like a high end version for just a fraction of the price. Highly recommend!
  3. Decent for the price

    Lina

    This 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

  5. Soft and Glow

    Michael

    Super 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 ...

  6. Nice when I need it

    Kat

    I 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.
  7. Value for money

    Becky

    This 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.
  8. set to go!

    Jessica

    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.
  9. Better than high end product

    Huyen

    I 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.
  10. Great everyday product.

    Stace

    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.

  12. Ok for the price

    Bee

    This is good for the price however the container is very messy, product gets everywhere. Powder itself is very light and translucent
  13. Great!

    Toni

    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
  14. Very fine

    Jasmine

    Finely 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!
  15. Affordable

    Stef

    I 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...

  16. Great setting powder

    Emma

    Very 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
  17. Not bad

    Emma

    This is good for a cheap powder. It’s very silky and fine and goes on translucent
  18. Sets well, but gives flashback

    Olivia

    This 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!
  19. flashback

    Peter

    I 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.
  20. I’ve repurchased this countless times

    Rhia

    I 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...

  21. Amazing

    CL

    This high def powder is a lovely quality and glides on perfectly to give an amazing finish . Highly recommend.
  22. So smooth and silky!

    Tiffany

    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...

  23. SIZE OF PRODUCT REDUCED!

    Alison

    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.
  24. Good alternative to Laura Mercier

    Leah

    I 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.
  25. Works Well

    Ashley

    Super 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.
  26. Already Recommended to most friends

    Tiffennie

    Having 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.
  27. Good but doesnt last long

    Catherine

    This 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.
  28. Sets my under eyes better than anything!

    Faith

    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
  29. SO GOOD!

    bella

    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.
  30. Great value

    Ammy

    For 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.
  31. Great for the price point

    Aimee

    I 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.
  32. One of the best

    Kaylah

    For such a cheap powder this really packs a punch. Great for setting makeup and toning down a shiny face.
  33. LOVE THIS FOR BAKING!

    Tanya

    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
  34. Great value

    Simone

    A 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.
  35. Really good

    Jess

    This 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.
  36. flashback

    Mya

    not 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
  37. Excellent Powder

    Emily

    Excellent powder especially for the price. Finely milled, so melts into the skin. No flashback in photos. A+++
  38. Comparable to the Laura Mercier powder

    Mary

    This 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...

  39. Perfect for baking

    Tanya

    This 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.
  40. Great setting powder at a reasonable price

    Julia

    I 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.
  41. amazing for the price - better than you expect

    Laura

    i 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
  42. Amazing!

    Char

    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!
  43. Soft

    Green

    This leaves my skin feeling so soft unfortunately I get some flash back
  44. Great

    L

    Left my skin nice and soft and also matte, don't leave without it!
  45. Okay for beginners

    Tenisha

    I love how silky my face felt after application, it was good for setting my foundation but not for baking!
  46. No comparison

    fyfie

    I 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 ...

  47. Cheap substitute

    Ai Lin

    This 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.
  48. As good as high end products

    Samantha

    This 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.
  49. Wow!

    Katrina

    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
