Translucent Mattifying Powder is rated 4.2771 out of 5 by 350.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from it works great without the sponge! I bought this for my sister originally but she didn't care for it, She's pale and it turned her orange. I have a slightly darker skin tone than her so I figured I'd try it out so it didn't go to waste. I tried applying it with the sponge a couple times because I really wanted to like it but it turned me orange if I wore it over foundation. I need a bit more coverage so I wasn't about to ditch my foundation to make this translucent powder work. I was experimenting with some new makeup (maybelline, Revlon, physicians formula, and e.l.f. of course) and brushes and figured I'd try out the powder one more time But With A Brush! The difference was night and day! I applied twice with a different foundation/concealer and switched between my e.l.f. complexion brush & my e.l.f. angled foundation brush. This powder feels amazing on and actually brightened my skin up without making me look like a ghost or getting cakey. Do yourselves a favor and ditch the sponge applicator and apply with a brush before you ditch the (translucent) powder!! 4 out of 5 because the sponge shouldn't be anywhere near this amazing powder!P.S. I just bought my sister some e.l.f. mineral foundation/booster so I don't feel bad about keeping this. She's already in love with the e.l.f. mineral line :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Allergic reaction This gave me an allergic reaction after 2 days. Do not recommend if you have sensitive skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quantity I bought this product to use instead of my translucent power and it didn't work the way I wanted to and then I stared using it under my foundation and it was great the only problem it's not lasting as long as I wanted it too and I have to apply quite a bit to cover as much as I could before I applied my foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my e.l.f. faves! <3 I bought this product about a month ago and I just ran out. It is one of my favorite e.l.f. products! The formula is super-light and gets rid of shine quickly. Sometimes I used this product by itself and it still looked good. The best part about it is that it lasted all day. Instead of using the little sponge included, I just used my e.l.f. Studio Complexion Brush, which helped blend it out better. If you don't already have this product, I definitely recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick I use this during the day with a face brush to remove some shine off my face. I bought it in translucent. I like it. I don't like the sponge that it comes with but it's good to remove shine as the day goes by

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product - but could use some updating! I know many of us (including myself) are confused as to what the white half of this product is. It's actually a SPONGE APPLICATORIn my personal opinion, the sponge could go bye bye (or even moved to the bottom of a compact or just places in the box?) and that space could be used for more actual product. Since only half of the man in actual product, it does run out fairly quickly. I think this lasted me a couple weeks.GOOD shine control, though! ELF never fails there :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favourite! I bought this out of curiosity as well as for a photoshoot I was doing makeup for and was so pleased with the results, I didn't find it pigmented at all. I use it everyday! Whenever I wanted a bit of powder to set my look, I use this with a stippling brush and it seamlessly softened any look. Anytime throughout the day I have a second to touch up my own makeup, I always use a smidge of this to get rid of any greasiness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yikes, ELF. I'm not sure if you know what "translucent" means. Like previous reviewers have said, it's flat out orange in the pan. I should have known better than to apply it to my face after seeing the color, but I wanted to give it a fair shot. A couple of hours later, I looked in a mirror at work and was horrified. It looked like I piled a cheap bronzer on my entire face. I had high hopes for this powder, as I needed something compact and cheap for quick touch ups at work - but this is NOT it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT Translucent I got this product in translucent, or so I thought. When I opened it for the first time, I was shocked. It's ORANGE! I gave it a try anyway to see if it wasn't as orange blended over foundation, and it turned more translucent and gave slight coverage (but was slightly cakey), so I calmed down a bit. Until I took a picture in it- my skin looked white! I don't know what's up with this product, but it's weird and I will not be repurchasing. Orange in the pan, white in pictures... Do not recommend if you have fair skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORTH IT. I've been using this translucent powder over a month now and it's definitely one of my favorite setting powder. It's light on my skin, doesn't dry out my skin and gives me a matte finish look. The only thing that I would change about this powder is that, I wish it would last a tad bit longer, but usually I don't have to re-apply because by the time is wears off, I'm really at the end of my day anyway. Other than that it's my go-to powder, I use it on the daily so it runs out pretty quick but for the price, I really don't mind buying this over and over again. It's definitely worth a shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Holy Grail Product!(: I buy this in translucent every time I shop for e.l.f makeup online or even in the store -- it's truly a holy grail for me. This powder makes my face very matte throughout the day, and I use both liquid concealer and liquid foundation, so I'm happy it gets the job done!(:The packaging is also very sleek and it is easy to keep clean. The sponge it comes with is alright and I use it on the go, but I regularly use the e.l.f. powder brush with it.I seriously recommend this to anyone; powder is a must for any who wear makeup!(:

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not translucent I was excited to get this product because I needed something to replace my Urban Decay HD Pressed Powder since I'm a student and can't afford to buy a $40 product. So I thought, why not try elf? I bought this in Translucent hoping it would look great on my skin (medium with yellow undertones), but no, it made me look orangey instead. I have tried this product three times with different foundations and still got the same result. I had to use a powder that's a shade lighter to tone down orangeness. It did do a good job matifying my face and worked well through out the day. For $3, I mean, I can't complain too much since I can easily fix it. It just sucks that I have to do two steps instead of one. This is definitely not the product I would put in my purse to do touch ups.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Setting Powder This is a nice setting powder, and compares to several high end brands.  Wearing one half a $38 powder and one half this $3 powder, you couldn't see any difference.  This is less finely milled, and you have to be careful as it is very easy to pick up a lot of product on your brush.  Typically, with application around 8am, I need blotting sheets by around 2-3pm.  For my oily skin, that's a result I'm happy with.  I also like the finish on this powder; it's mattifying, but not flat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like this product, it adds a finishing touch that you don't realize you're missing until you put it on. One disappointing thing is that I thought both pans contained makeup, one side has a sponge applicator. Maybe it says that somewhere but I missed it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Powder! Translucent. I bought this as an all-over quick fix to oily spots I may have throughout the day and I love it. I use it initially to set my under-eye concealer and it instantly mattifies any shine. It's like a mini corrector if my foundation brush streaked a bit, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this. I bought this in the tinted colour and I love it. My skin tone is medium and sometimes I don't bother with foundation and just use this powder. It takes the shininess away from my skin and gives me full coverage. Sometimes I don't need blush or anything else because it kind of gives me a summer, natural glow/look. The only con to this product is that there is not enough of it. It is unnecessarily huge because of the added compartment for the sponge. I think they should get rid of the sponge all together and make the whole thing the powder itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only ELF Product I Use So, honestly, I kinda really don't like this brand. But, when I was younger (just a few years ago), I had a very strict budget and not a lot of money. But, I had an interest in makeup and even drugstore was too expensive. So, I turned to ELF and loved it, not realizing that 9/10 times, the product was terrible. But, even to this day I still use this product. It gives good coverage, even without foundation (or in my case, tinted moisturizer). It stays on basically all day, and depending on your skin type, can be sweat-proof. Overall, I think ELF needs more products like this instead of the cheapo stuff they currently make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this! I recently received this powder in an order I placed online. I placed another order and made sure I ordered an extra so I can have one in my bathroom and one in my purse. I love this powder. It takes down the shine without looking powdery like some of my other powders. I like to set my under eye concealer with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ITS A MUST!!! I have repurchased this product several times.. and I love it! Not only is the packaging adorable, but the product is amazing. I contstaly purchased this product in the TRANSLUCENT shade and its perfect on the go. I always carry is product to retouch my face whenever I feel like its getting a little oily and it works amazing. The only downfall is the little applicator that comes along with it. It easily gets dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite cosmetics I am extremely fair. I've been on a kick lately to find makeup that really works for my light coloring. This powder is wonderful. I put it on as my last step as a highlight on the tops of cheeks, nose. It has a little bit of coverage so I hit the area under my eyes and on my chin that have a little darkness and redness. It brightens and lightens. I really love this - not sure how well it'd work for someone with a different complexion but for me it is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect powder for your purse I keep this in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. I love the compact it comes it. It is so sleek, has the sponge inside and has a huge mirror. I don't think I would use this to set my makeup in the morning but love using it in the afternoon to touch up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I bought this recently and all I can say is WOW what a great $3 investment. I keep it by my desk at work and midday, when I ALWAYS get oily, I put some on my forehead. All of my makeup remains unaffected, but now I just don't have an oily forehead anymore! PERFECT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I bought this about 2wks ago and am in love! I have very oily skin and it has taken all of the oily shine away, a complete matte finish until I wash it off hours later. I am complerely satisfied! I am no means a make-up person, it is easy to apply and use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again what does translucent mean? semitransparent right? well this was not that. I am a shade NC 42 or Urban Decay Naked 6 or Garnier oil free bb cream in medium deep and this powder went on porcelain. If you ever buy a foundation that is to dark for you buy this it will lighten it up.
