Translucent Mattifying Powder is rated 4.1503 out of 5 by 479.
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 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 3 out of 5 by from NOT translucent It says it's translucent but it is NOT. It is noticeably tinted!

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice. I guess This is great by it self. but when wearing foundation it darkens it a little. I think it has to do with my skin tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for setting makeup I have used this product for years, because it's light enough to set foundation without adding any heaviness to the finished look. There's nothing worse than looking like you're wearing a kabuki mask. Eww.That's why I love this translucent powder. It gives a simple, soft look that can be used to set makeup, or even just used by itself to look fresh faced. But be careful; if you apply this in order to cover imperfections, you WILL get that dreaded mask face.There's really no way around it. So if you're looking for more coverage from a pressed powder, E.L.F. has some really great ones, so go for those instead of picking up this one.*Note: Don't be alarmed by the light look of the translucent powder. I'm an NC35, and this is perfectly fine and blends great, as long as it's used in moderation and for its intended purpose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh I used this over the BB cream to create a more matte effect. Granted, I have fairly oily skin, but I felt it just wore off after an hour. I prefer to use the blending brush instead of the sponge so maybe it doesn't have the same effect. The translucent is a good color for fair skin tones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing ! I just got this in the mail today and was so excited until I opened it... It was all crumbled :(. But the product overall is fantastic. I have really oily skin and this stuff makes me look not so oily and flawless all day ! I really love it and will be repurchasing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice texture but not great I bought this about 2 weeks ago and honestly wasn't as happy with the results as I thought. Overall I have pretty oily skin so thought this would be a good idea. But I have a couple blemishes and this just clings like crazy. With the cold weather my jaw also tends to get dry (doesn't make a lot of sense but) this just clings to ever little piece of dry skin ever. The coverage isn't translucent but I actually like it. So if you have blemish free oily to regular skin this may work alright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oily skin? Can't tell! I bought this last week and I can already see improvements! I have REALLY oily skin, and I apply this on a couple times a day and my face doesn't look that oily at all! The only things are that it's not totally transparent (I bought the darker set), but it's not even a whole shade darker and blends well, and it doesn't last as long as I'd like, but it works! Reapplying is super easy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color Is VERY MISLEADING I bought 4 of the Translucent Mattifying Powders - Corrective, because the photo on the website LOOKS JUST like the TINTED I used to buy...that is... before it was discontinued. When I received my package I was shocked to discover what I actually ordered was actually YELLOW! It looks NOTHING like the photo on the website!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GIVES A HIGH DEF LOOK!!!!! I HAVE BEEN USING THIS FOR YEARS AND I LOVE IT!!!! I USE THE TRANSPARENT ONE. I USUALLY USE A CONCEALER IF I HAVE A MARK ON MY SKIN, I PUT THE BLUSH ON AND THEN I APPLY THIS ALL OVER MY FACE. IT GIVES A VERY NATURAL MATTE LOOK, AND I TEND TO SWEAT IN THE SUMMER AND THERE'S NO STREAKING. AND WHEN I COOL OFF IT STILL GIVES ME THAT GREAT LOOK!!! FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS I ADD A FONDATION AND PUT THIS ON TOP LASTS ALL NIGHT & DAY WHEN USED ALONE!!!!TRY IT.......YOU'LL LOVE THIS PRODUCT. ALWAYS HAVE SEVERAL ON HAND!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Agree to disagree on what translucent means I am very fair and always have to use a translucent powder because anything else is too dark. This is not translucent. It's very tan-y pink. It's an odd shade. I don't know if it's a nice powder or not because i cannot wear it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice! Rubs off easily but works well otherwise. Definitely would recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO! There are two colors. Translucent and Corrective. They are VERY different in color! Girls who are SUPER fair can use the translucent, while the Corrective powder is literally white like chalk. The picture makes the corrective look natural - so I tried it, but it is really, really light . More than porcelain. I can't.
