Translucent Mattifying Powder is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 490.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not terrible Not great but not that bad. It did mattify as any powder will but it did not control oil. It also is not very translucent. it will leave a light cast on the skin that does not look natural. I think it would be best for light skin tones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great setting power I wear this product everyday to set my makeup. I like the matte effect and it is also has a good setting power. I like the fact that it can be use to correct a heavyhand in contouring or blushing It can also be used to set cream eyeshadow!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not in love I think you might see a better effect with this product if you have oily skin. I have dry skin and I don't see much difference when I use the product. I have used it with the sponge and with a kabuki brush and either way I didn't find it very impressive. It could definitely be because of my skin complexion though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok It's a great powder. It's similar to the Rimmel Stay Matte. It's perfect but mine came broken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trash I dont know how but after I started getting a little bit oily it got super cakey and it made my make up just slide off my face. It also broke me out very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I order 3 extra just to keep them on hand so I don't run out for a while. Last a good amount of time. Instantly matte finish wherever you put it. Worth it and more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in a compact I am enjoying using this product at the end of my makeup regime for work. I have a lot of fine lines and wrinkles and it does not highlight them at all. It gives my face a lovely finish before I head out the door to work. I do not apply it with the sponge, I use a large brush for the perfect look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like Chalk I bought like two weeks ago and it's very chalky. It litterly feels like transparent chalk. It sets nice but it looks chalky and cakey. Would recomment the stay matte by rimmel london instead. Couple dollars more and it's my ride or die.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really quite good I got this because I have oily skin, and none of the seven (!) stores I checked carried the mattifying balm I'd heard so much about. Being desperate for anything that would fix the oil slick that is my forehead, I grabbed this. After all, I reasoned, it's mattifying, I've heard that translucent powder is a good thing (I'm fairly new at this whole makeup thing), and it's half the price of the balm, so I bought it. The first time I tested it out, I wasn't happy. It had color to it, and it showed up on my face. Not cool. However, I tried it again (applying it with a brush instead of the sponge thingie this time, so it wasn't visible), and I love it! I did have to reapply, but Great Scot, this stuff worked! I'm quite happy that I bought this.Note: I just bought mine from Walmart a within the last month, and it isn't shimmery at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was a long time buyer of this product, but recently the formulation changed. It has a shimmer to it and leaves a white residue. If you have oily skin, do not even think about reapplying this as it leaves a very cakey appearance on the skin. I am so disappointed because I loved the old version!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke Skin Out Immediately I was so excited to use this and was extremely disappointed because it made me break out all over my entire face. Literally formed what looked and felt like hundreds of tiny white heads. So disappointed because I love elf products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why glitter? I have fair skin so this doesn't look ashy on me but I don't like using it because it is shimmery. The shimmer was noticeable when I swatched it on my hand and when it was on my face. If they took the glitter out I might buy it again, but until then I think I'll pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This product made my skin look so soft! I love how little product you have to use in order to make your skin look flawless. I highly recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FLAWLESS!! I have probably the most oily skin and have been trying everything to mattify my face. This product works so well, especially if you use it with a powder brush to apply it on your t zone after putting on your makeup (I sometimes wear it without make up too) Although you have to reapply throughout the day, it's worth it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok the sponge sucks, I would recommend using a brush instead. It's not really that good for darker skinned people because it does leave a white shadow however I do still use it very lightly all over my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect finishing touch! I've tried so many different finishing powders and when I finally found this one at Walgreens, I couldn't go back to any others! After I apply my liquid or cream foundation I finish off my face with this powder, and it leaves a smooth pore-less finish that I absolutely love! I have pretty fair skin with yellow undertones and this worked PERFECTLY for me, I don't have any issues with it leaving a pink/peach tone like someone had stated in their review, but maybe thats just me. I love this product so much, I use it almost every day and it lasts me at least 2 months!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's Alright I bought this a while ago & rediscovered it. While I liked it in the past, this powder has issues. It claims to be translucent but if you use the included puff, it packs on the powder and turns my skin peachy pink. If you don't mind the color, I do think it's one of the best mattifying powders out there that doesn't mess up my foundation. It also fills in my pores, which is nice. I don't break out from this powder and it has lasted a long time. The compact is portable and the mirror is large, perfect for touch ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes. Just yes. I could write sonnets about this product, it's truly amazing. !But!... It works so much better when you don't use the provided sponge (the white part in the picture) and instead use a good brush, I love it with most elf brushes. It does have some pigment, as is expected with the term translucent, but just enough that it isn't overbearing. It does what it says, and I find it's best use is for setting under eye concealer. ♥ It's safe to say that I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I have been using this powder for years and I love it. I have only good things to say about this. The color and coverage is great. It sets my foundation and covers shiny skin. If I need a quick touch up, I use this instead of adding more foundation. It is light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oily Skin Must Have When I got this I completely expected it to break me out/ not be effective. This has been an every day product that I absolutely love for oily skin. It keeps me from looking shiny all day. The only thing I don't like is it can look super powdery/ chalky on the skin without a lot of blending.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not translucent I have had this powder for a while and let me just say that for my pale skin, this is not translucent! Before I bought it I was under the impression that the right side was a white powder. However, when I opened it up for the first time I realized it was a sponge. Anyway, this made me look cakey and powdery. Now I used rimmel stay matte powder in translucent, which works wonders compared to this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder ever I am writing this to plead with ELF to never, ever stop making this powder!! I used to hate using powders because they leave that powdery look on your skin and leave me looking old, dry and wrinkled. I usually buy two at a time, one for home and one for my purse. Can't beat this kind of quality for 3 bucks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this product for 2 years and its perfect! It's high quality and for a great price. It's good for putting it over foundation or just for baking. If you want a matt finish to your makeup this is perfect. 10/10 do recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not translucent at all but I use it when I put some concealer on blemishes and then this powder and it's awesome! It really leaves my skin very matte and it stays on for a long time if you don't touch your face very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This stuff is a MIRACLE! I use it daily. My face can sometime be oily, and it totally hides it! It's definitely matte and works so well. So worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I re-purchase this every time I run out, I love this product. Perfect to use alone or over foundation. This is an essential in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really nice powder BUT.......... If you are looking for a true translucent powder, this is not for you. I just happened to be extremely lucky to be the same skin tone as the powder so it works great for me. However if you have medium to dark skin, I would stay far away. Also it only took me 8 days to start hitting pan... only EIGHT. The sponge is pretty weak and just gets in the way. I wish they would have just gotten rid of the sponge and made the whole pan of the powder. Long story short: great powder for me, but tons of flaws.
