Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect color and finish with a brush I love love love this product, but I am looking for the "Buff" color which they are temporarily out of - 3 to 5 weeks. Bummer. I find that the powder works best with a fluffy brush, and you can pinch down on the bristles to make a firmer brush for contouring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as powder foundation This is a total dupe for Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation for me. Love it for those laid back days!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too dark I bought this little guy in Porcelain and it's just yellow. I'm sure it's a nice product in your own skin colour but this was like jaundice powder for me haha.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! The colors online look pretty light, and when I first got it I thought it was going to be too light, but it turned out to be a perfect match! I did watch some YouTube videos to determine which color would be best for me before ordering though. I have light/medium skin and ordered "sand" despite how I was gravitating towards "buff." Like the other pressed products I have from elf (I have a couple of the pressed mineral blushes), there is a lot of fallout, but the application is smooth and easy (I use the mineral powder brush), and the coverage is great despite the mess. I use this over the Flawless Finish foundation (the shades in the foundation match the shades of the powder; they are meant to be used together), and it really does look flawless and not as though I have a lot of makeup on my face. This would have definitely been a 5 star product if not for the fallout--it is pretty extreme, but I can overlook that for the payoff of the coverage and consistency of the product. I wouldn't recommend this for "on-the-go" since it is messy, but still well worth the $3. Perhaps I will use the felt pad that it comes with it underneath the pan and maybe there will be less fallout.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super crumbly I ordered this powder after I had read a few reviews on it comparing it to Mac studio fix powders. Personally I've never tried any Mac powders so I thought I'd give it a try. On my first attempt the powder gets so messy and the coverage is blotchy. Second attempt was similsr . overall I disliked this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use a brush!!! I bought this powder in the shade almond as the was the colour that matched my skin tone the most but when I used it with the powder puff it came with it went waayy too dark and looked really bad but I didn't want to give up on it just yet. When I next used the powder, now with a big fluffy blush brush, it was perfect! The powder went on so smoothly and matched my yellow toned skin amazingly. I usually can't find a powder that matches my skin colour unless it's overly priced but this was honestly perfect. I can use it on it's own with just a little concealer underneath or over foundation and it's still great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice powder, but odd color reaction I have to agree with another reviewer about this product changing color. I too buy the sand color, and it looks like a perfect match from the pan to my skin. However, when I apply it with a very high quality, clean puff, it changes to a darker orange on my face and the puff. The powder itself appears to be high quality, finely milled, and has no aluminum or parabens (a deal breaker for me), so I had high hopes. But my face goes progressively darker as I wear it. I can get away with applying with a brush very lightly, but that reduces the coverage, so I recommend it, but with restrictions. I have combo, mature skin. Why do you suppose this product is so unstable?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good experience I bought this hoping for a cheap powder to wear for everyday but this one is just not for me. I have light yellow toned skin and often I get makeup that is light tan or light/medium. I though caramel might be a good pick especially when I get really tan. When I first saw it I thought yes this is a good match but once I put it on things went bad. It started oxidizing immediately. I was only wearing lotion and no primer. I put pictures to show one side of the sponge was the color of the powder and on the side that I used the color turned several shades darker. It also had an orange red color when it was on my face. This is the first time I used a powder from elf and I'm not sure I want to again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird colours I have very pale skin, pink/blue undertones, so I bought a couple of different colours to try: porcelain and sand. They're both VERY yellow. In fact I'd call the porcelain orange. And they're too dark. REALLY miss the Pressed Mineral Foundation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ehh I ordered this product in the light shade and it looks orange on my face and when I got it, it was already a little broke. That didn't bother me much, but I was disappointed about it making a face appear orange.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The color is pretty off, I bought it in porcelain and it is a little too dark. Plus it is unnaturally yellow, I have to blend it a lot into my usual foundation- which i use this powder over- in order for it to look more natural. It does, however, have great coverage over my usual foundation and concealer to further hide blemishes, again it just has to be layered and blended quite a bit to look natural and not yellow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color is a little "off" The product is just ok. I tried this because Flawless Face Powder ($2) was out of stock in my color. Even though I purchased the lightest shade, it was still too gold and heavy on my face. I used a powder face brush instead of the pad that came with the product and that worked better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this a month ago and within a week of using it the applicator pad fell apart and there isn't a lot of powder in it. It's already almost empty but for $3 I guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Powder Ok I really like this powder, it is a good shade for me- I got porcelain. The only problem is that when you try to apply it with a brush it powders everywhere and is messy. It comes with a little pad thing so I use that instead because it doesn't go everywhere with that and applies well. overall this is a good product for its price and the colour range is good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In the beginning of the year I used the porcelain and it was slightly darker than my skin tone and after the summer I got a tan and almond works well for me now. It's a little powdery and the applicator it comes with isnt the best but the coverage of it is good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Coverage I love love love this stuff. I used to use Sephora's brand of compact foundation until I switched to cruelty free cosmetics. This is absolutely comparable to Sephora's brand of foundation, as well as BareMinerals. I have a "spongy" round applicator that I use, instead of the one they provided. If you just use the foundation, it does leave an orange-yellow kinda tint by itself. I use "Porcelain", but if you put their Sunkissed? (cant remember the name, its a round compact powder) skin bronzer on over it and blend, it works perfectly and looks really nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome amazing and applies THE BEST with a damp beauty blender Omggg !

Going to buy lots more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in Love! I fell in love with the idea of using a pressed power on top of my foundation from Mac Cosmetics; however their product is about 30+ dollars. Wayyyyy too much for something that is not necessarily needed per-say. I google to see if I could find a similar product, and I found this! It works amazing!!!! Just as good as Mac, if not better due to the low price. I love this product and will continue to purchase it. The only suggestion I would make is if you do not know your color, buy a couple that you believe would match because the color descriptions are a little off. I have a skin I would consider caramel by pictures, but that one was extremely too bright. I'm glad I bought almond to fall back on, which matched me perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This powder is amazing, I apply it with the elf kabuki brush and it leaves a beautiful airbrush finish. I'm very fair and the color sand worked well for me. I have to brag on the packaging too it's really nice and sleek, nice size mirror too. This will stay in my makeup bag for as long as they make it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dilemma or Not a Dilemma Ordered this last week, came in the mail today. I got it in Almond and unfortunately, it's barely too light for my skin. Fortunately, I can use it as a softer contour, for days where I'm not going all out on my makeup. The one downside to this is that if I move my brush too much in the product, there's a lot of flaking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This is an okay item. The applicator really bad however, also the amount of powder is rediculous. My powder arrived broken, however that was fine, but i got to see the amount in it. Indeed very little. I have one by revlon which is quite similar, but it contains more. Wayyyyy more about the same price.

I definitely recommend this powder as I mentioned the coverage is awesome it coverrd up every blemish I have on my face , it give me an even skin tone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes down shine fast. I enjoy the shine control of this powder and like it's packaging.... The powder puff stores under the powder tray instead of just resting in direct contact with the powder. That way, the puff is less likely to fall out if you open the compact hurriedly.
