High Definition Powder is rated 4.3345 out of 5 by 1,396.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic mattifying powder I have used this for ages, bit messy if you don't use it carefully. GREAT TIP! put a powder compact pad on the grid then shake with the lid on, when you open in turn the compact pad over and use a brush to take off the excess then tap it on the lid and close it up. Hardly any mess at all this way.Amazing on the T zone to take away shine all day. I have only ever used the white one but going to order the shimmer next.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Messy ok to get product you need to shake the jar with the lid on to get the product out and accessible. well once you do that and re open the lid product goes everywhere! it looks like a smoke bomb went off! Good setting powder just done go over board, it can leave a white glow behind...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hint Of Tint shade I bought this in the shade hint of tint in stores. The only thing I didn't like about it is how messy it is. But, it is amazing! It adds the perfect tint to my skin, it makes it look like i've been tanning! It is so lovely especially if you're a paler lady!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to bake! I use this powder to 'bake' my face. I apply heavy amounts to my cheeks and to sharpen up my contour and I brush it off after I've done my eyebrows and my eye makeup. It gives a great matte highlight when you use it for this makeup technique. The only con is that in photos using flash it is WHITE and harsh using the Sheer shade. So if you don't want to take any photos using flash I'd definitely recommend it! I also love the fact that if you get any on your hands (which you will do, its VERY messy), it makes the skin super smooth and doesn't transfer off your hands onto any black clothing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh It's ok for the price. I am neither impressed or overly disappointed with this product though, I got it in the white and if I split too much out died lighten my skin a bit, but my main concern is the fact that it's do cake-y. Add with most cheap powders, it's really noticeable your wearing one, especially up close. So all and all not my favorite elf product but it's a pretty good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin! I bought this in "Sheer" a few days ago and I'm pretty impressed with it! I applied over my foundation (liquid and powder) and it did give my face a nice, finished look. The product is very fine and silky and doesn't look powdery on the skin. It also makes my skin feel very soft! I did a good job keeping my face from looking shiny or oily for most of the day. Because I'm very fair, I was able to apply it pretty liberally without looking like a ghost. However, the whiteness of the powder might be an issue for people with darker skin. Also the packaging can get a bit messy but isn't too much of a problem it you're careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fresh Look This works well with my oily skin. I do use a matte primer under my fondation & use this to set it. Does a great job. Also, for a mother of 2 this is ALWAYS in my budget!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible - minimal coverage I'm a big fan of ELF, but this is a huge disappointment! Barely stays on the face, no coverage at all...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Night Use Only! I found out the hard way that I should not be using this during the day. It makes you look a bit washed-out under brighter lights. Works very well in the evening, but it is a bit messy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good on its own, not for use with a primer This is just about the softest powder I have ever used. It does a nice job blurring imperfections and creating a soft look, but unless I blend it really well with a brush, not the pad it comes with, I get a sort of ghosty effect. I would not recommend this to anyone who regularly uses a primer, even elf's primers, because they clump together and flake off when used together, rendering them both useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First and Only Finishing Powder I absolutely love this finishing powder, it gives my a nice natural matte finish and my makeup lasts all day. I used to just use a powder base as a finishing powder but I still had a bit of shine or it would look unnatural, but this goes on flawlessly (I have this in sheer) and blends very easily. I don't use the poof that comes with it, instead I use the e.l.f. Powder Brush. I Just dab it into the powder, tap into lid, swirl, and apply, that way I don't use too much product. This product has lasted me since last June and I just recently had to order more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Makes my skin appear brighter with just concealer. I don't need to wear foundation, it lasts all day and looks so natural.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I got this powder in the "sheer" finish and it's great! It really does give a soft focus effect on your skin, it made my pores basically disappear and got rid of all the shine on my face. The only problem is it leaves a kind of white cast on your face when you apply it, but that goes away after a little while. 10/10 I will be repurchasing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from PLEASE DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!! I bought this today and I was so excited that it could be used for a great setting powder to bake with, a cheaper version of a loose banana powder.I WAS WRONG. This is has shimmer in it, and looks horrible in flash photography because is leaves a white cast. This doesn't reduce redness whatsoever.Please don't get this product im saving you $6!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Went from several touch ups a day to none Im immensely happy with this product. It has worked wonders for me. The only question I have is how to avoid white appearance with flash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice powder! I really like how this powder fells on the skin. I purchased the translucent powder and it does a really good job of taking away any shininess or oil from my foundation. I found you have to be careful not to apply too much as it can leave a white cast over the face, so I tend to use it across the T - zone and other areas as needed instead of all over the face!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I really like this product it is great to keep your makeup lasting all day. However it is messy if you take the cover off completely, so I recommend taking a toothpick or something sharp and poking little holes in the cover that comes inside of the product. This will make sure that too much does not come out and it makes it a whole lot less messy. There is also a pressed version of this, or something very similar to it, so if you aren't really wanting the loose version there is a very similar if not the same, product called the e.l.f Perfect Finish HD Powder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this setting powder. I have combination skin, I use this BEFORE my foundation. Yes, I said it. After I go through my skin care routine, I moisturize, prime, then use the clear powder. I then apply my foundation, and then I apply a little bit more on my nose and T-zone (because those areas of my face are so oily). By doing this, I use less foundation, and my makeup stays on longer. Don't waste your money on buying a fancy schmancy setting powder. This is just as good!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin! This powder has literally changed my life. It's the only product I've found so far that controls my oil enough that I don't have to blot or touch up 5x a day. I haven't found that it makes me look ghostly, but I haven't taken any photos since I've been using it. Please don't ever discontinue it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I originally got this for my Halloween makeup (I did a sugar skull) I needed it to not look oily and to stay in place. I have a horrible habit of touching my face. It worked perfectly. Now I use it after I put my foundation on to set it and holy cow.... I never knew my makeup could look so good. Lol. I don't use the little pad that it comes with because I have a hard time getting the powder on it. I use a very large brush and sprinkle some in the lid and roll my brush around in it. Works much better. I also have the colorless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lightweight coverage I was looking for something that would give me lightweight coverage, and this is exactly what I was looking for. The one I purchased was the Shimmer color, and I would compare this product to the BareMinerals Mineral Veil. Also, I was a little concerned that the "shimmer" would be too sparkly, but that is not at all the case. The shimmer is not noticeable and the overall color is perfect. Even though this comes with a pouf, I use a brush and it works well for me. I am so happy with this product and use it on a daily basis. My only wish is that there would be a larger size option (perhaps twice as much product for $10).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice. I bought the colourless powder and I love it. I have normal skin but can tend to get shiny later in the day. I work 12 hr night shifts and after using this I don't even have to touch up. Makes skin look flawless and the fine texture doesn't make u looked caked, just gives a nice natural finish. Will buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin I have super oily t zone & usually have to powder every hour. I used this powder on top of my matte foundation & I only had to touch up twice during the day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this powder. $6? Can't beat it. I don't take a lot of photos so I never really noticed ghost face from a flash, I guess just be mindful of wearing this powder when you know you'll be photographed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for oily skin! I was really looking forward to trying this product. I have really oily skin and I normally use a dozen products a day to keep it matte and I still have to blot and reapply as the day progresses. I tried this powder one day with no other makeup on and it kept my skin matte all day without having to reapply! It makes my face look so clean and fresh without drowning my face in a pile of cosmetics. I would absolutely recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! (When I'm not taking pictures) This powder is great if you don't plan on taking any flash photos all day. Keeps your makeup in place and prevents shine for a few hours, not all day though. Only horrible thing is that when you take a photo, you look like a ghost. I'm a medium olive skin tone and in photos I look fair-light because of this powder, which makes me look like I picked a foundation too light for my face! So be careful with this product, but great other than that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome value I was going back and forth on if I needed to add an HD powder to my routine - I noticed in some pics that my makeup just looked dull - first off I am 32 light completed with combo skin. Recently I have been trying different things to get my makeup to set and stay put. I use the white powder (yes if you use too much you will look like Olaf off frozen) I use a kubuki (in a pinch the included puff does fine) and apply in an upward swirling motion and I have to say my selfies or surprise pics look tons better! Recently I have also added the mist and set and the two paired work like a charm. This was a good buy (but if you want on the go portability then opt for the compact) this is as pictured - a bit bulky and I am sure none of use would want an explosion in our purses!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I just bought mine yesterday and realized that there was barley and product so I took off the little strainer thing and sure enough the container wasn't even filled up half way so your pretty much paying for packaging this is ridiculous

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as the discontinued Mineral Booster! Nice powder. It give a soft focus effect. The only problem with it is that the transcendent leaves a white cast and the tinted one is glittery and has a lot of shimmer. I wish they made it in a sheer (slightly tinted) that had NO shimmer . The mineral booster powder was the best but it has been discontinued! Bring it back!
