High Definition Powder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1594.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it like my other ELF products but.. I bought this a couple of months ago and have tested it almost every day since. Conclusion: I hate it. When I use the powder in sheer it pulls off the product I used underneath it such as concealer or foundation. I look like a splotchy alligator. Skip this one and get the NYC loose powder. Better and cheaper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product little size I recently purchased this and loved it so much! I found a multitude of uses for it and all fantastic results! However the packaging is miss leading and there is very little. It only lasted a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really love this I bought this hoping it would be slightly better than my previous powder and its a lot better. It doesn't leave your face with any white patches, and I found that it really helped my makeup to last even in my oily zones. Only problem it is a little messy, but thats to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the sheer loose powder, It doesn't leave any white cast and gives you a smooth, airbrushed effect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soft Luminance = Glitter Face Bought this product based on the raving rewiews. Unfortunately, I am not satisfied with it. I bought the powder named soft luminance and after applying it my face I looked liked I took a glitter pot and painted my face! I literally look like a vampire whose skin sparkles in the light ! I reallly wanted to like this product ! Giving it 2 stars as you can wear this glitter powder at a party event . But for a everyday use ... don't bother!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Oily Faces! This great setting powder helps to off-set any oil or shine giving you that great matte finish. I have the white High Definition Powder and you can even use this powder as a substitute for coloured powder foundation. I use a simple blending blush. Super light and wears for a full day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Doubles as dry shampoo (preventative) This provides wonderful oil & shine control... so much so that I find that if I use it lightly around my hairline twice a day, I can avoid using the dreaded spray dry shampoo products altogether. It always looks and feels natural to me (I used the natural shade (nude). I hope ELF always offers this product it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is different This product seemed odd to me at first, but once I tried it it made so much sense to give your face a matter finish. I bought the Kabuki brush to use with this. This product is a mess and the package mine came in looks a lot different than what the picture shows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome finish to makeup, but needs to be blended! This setting powder regardless of shades have gotten my compliments on my makeup out in public, which immediately told me this powder was a steal! However, my first time with it I got flashback like nothing! I found a solution that worked for me to fix this and it was to blend the powder in with a kabuki brush in circular motions until the powder disappeared. Once you do that, you'll really have a flawless face! One of my favorite setting powders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVEE One of the best translucent setting powders in the drugstore side! I really like how it makes my skin look, it doesn't feel cakey or anything, so lightweight and it sets my makeup flawlessly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Setting Powder! I have tried numerous setting powders. I bought this one for the first time in an makeup emergency situation while on vacation in California. Once I came back home and ran out I panicked! Because of the new packaging, I kept thinking "I dont think this is the same one..." so I never bought it and tried others with no success of liking them. Then I saw in big letters "new packaging, same product" and I got so excited! I bought all the ones available at Target. This is MY FAVORITE SETTING POWDER! It's light, doesn't crease, and it gives you a photo ready finish. My makeup looks flawless at the end of my routine and does an excellent job of staying that way while I go about my day. I couldn't recommend this product enough.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE FLASHBACK do NOT wear if there is any possibility of flash photography because there is white cast left behind and it just ruins your photos.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok I got this in the translucent shade. As far as coverage...It's not as great as I'd hoped it would be but it's not bad. It gives a smooth, shine free finish but it's not flawless or "soft focus" as described.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but you have to know your skin I bought the translucent shade a few months ago & I must say it took a while to make it work best for me, but it's overall a really good product. If you're of a darker complexion (I use Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless shade 355 for reference) or even don't want a white cast with your foundation, I wouldn't suggest using this powder alone on top of anything because there will be a white cast. If you do use this on top of your foundation to set or bake, I highly recommend using a face powder the same color as your skin to dust of the excess translucent powder & mute the white cast. If you do use all those powders, I would also suggest using the Elf Set & Mist spray because it further sets everything and keeps your foundation from looking & feeling cakey. I mainly use this powder underneath my liquid foundation since it keeps oils & creasing at a minimum while having practically no flashback.How I use the product (**disclaimer - this is what works best for me**):I use a color corrector & concealer (to restore my skin color after correcting & to highlight) underneath my foundation, so I apply the powder with the powder puff to the areas I applied concealer & my smile lines (since I get a lot of creasing) before my foundation. I let it set for no more than a minute or 2 before I dust of the excess with a clean , fluffy brush and proceed to apply my foundation. Sometimes, I do use a little bit of the translucent powder after my foundation just in case I add a little more concealer if didn't highlight as much as I wanted, but I apply it very lightly & almost immediately dust it off with a face powder that's my skin tone. These methods keep everything in place and keeps my skin looking flawless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs different packaging. The product itself is awesome. However, the container is awful, half of it gets in the edge of the container and spilling everywhere when twisting the top off and causes a lot wasted product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok I have this in the white/translucent color. It is good for steering and baking, but can leave a white cast on your face. For the price it's good, but it could be better

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have uses this powder for 4 years now and I'm so in love .I recently bought the Laura mercier translucent powder which I payed 40 bucks for it and it didn't look as good as my elf powder I was shocked . I used the shade soft luminance but I do wished it can last longer that would make it better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good for the price. I use sheer, and even though most see the white glow in pictures I'm so pale it's normal for me. I'm a 42N in the Kat Von D Foundation and this sets it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I freaking love this powder. I have extremely dry skin so I use quite a bit of moisturizer. Most setting powders leave my skin still tacky, which I hate because I prefer a matte finish. This powder leaves me very matte without being too drying, and makes my skin feel soft. On top of this, I use it everyday and I only just ran out after 6 months! Definitely would recommend!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was Really Looking Forward to Trying This As far as loose powder goes, you don't need much. But it's patchy and gives a weird look to the skin. As someone who goes as pale as possible, one would think that the white cast to the skin would be desirable, but it doesn't give a "soft focus". It settles into pores and lines and doesn't help reduce shine. It just makes my skin look chalky. I use it more as a highlighter now, but I won't let people take my photo when I'm wearing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The flashback on the white powder is horrible!! Its great for the daytime: stops oils, smooths and creates a silky textureBut WATCH OUT. It was by birthday, and I decided to give this a try.The photos with the flash were absolutely dreadful!!!!It can also look cakey if you apply it for too long (I recommend only 3-4 minutes , and I have combo skin which is also very sensitive)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives your skin a soft glow. I like this product and it definitely gives your skin a soft glow. It's not as good as everyone else is making it out to be, very over-hyped. But I do think it's a good product. It's quite messy, but the container has been designed so there is minimal spillage. It comes with a make up puff to apply the powder too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT FOR EXTREMELY OILY SKIN!! If you have very oily skin, BUY THIS NOW!!! I typically have to blot and repowder every 30 minutes before my face is so greasy/oily. I have been using this product for a few months and this week purchased the new packaged version from Target and I am in love!!! I will never buy another powder again!! I was out for 9+ hours tonight, dancing, and I only had to blot and repowder my face once! I applied the powder using a damp beauty blender. I'm telling you this HD powder is a miracle for oily skin! Don't even bother purchasing more expensive brand powders - this is all you need

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HD powder I have the translucent and tan color one. I really like them both. I did buy the translucent one in the pressed version and I like it better than the loose powder. The loose is too messy and gets everywhere. I wish you all would make the other colors in a pressed form as well. Especially the yellow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Favorite Undereye Setting Powder I've been using this for a long time, and I pretty much cannot live without it. I had previously been using the tiny undereye setting powder, which I loved, but my undertone is neutral to yellow, so I switched over to the Corrective Yellow High Def powder. I use it with a tiny, damp undereye sponge, and it absorbs beautifully. I had to give it only four stars, though, because it's not as perfectly and finely milled as it could be. There are pieces that are not ground down completely, so what I do is I pour some powder into the lid, dip my damp sponge into it, and then scrape it gently on the edge of the lid to remove those larger particles. If any end up on my face, they're easy to remove with a brush, but sometimes they get into my eye, and that's obviously lame. Other than that, though, I love it!!
