ELF High Definition Powder
Thursday, 12 July 2012
I always have to use a powder to set my foundation as I do have oily skin and I prefer a matte look. This ELF High Definition Powder pretty much instantly mattifies my skin and I love that I can use it throughout the day without it being cakey. It's a very finely milled white powder which I find gives a "soft focus" effect to my skin. You do have to apply it with a light hand, or you risk ending up with a white face - not a good look! I've also heard that it can sometimes give a "ghost face" appearance when used in flash photography, but I haven't found that at all.
The one negative thing that I have found with this product is the packaging. It's bulky and messy. It comes with a powder puff but I prefer to apply it with ELF Studio Powder Brush so that I can better control how much product I'm using.
If you're looking for a powder to set your make-up, provide a soft-focus finish and mattify without cakiness - this is it. ELF's prices are super affordable, this costs £6 but since the tiniest bit of product goes a long way, I think it's great value for money. It also comes in a shimmer variety and a corrective yellow powder.
ELF are currently having a huge 50% off everything with the code INDEMAND50 for orders over £30 and with most products being between £1.50 and £3, I'd get stocking up now and take advantage of this great offer!
