Review: ELF Studio Translucent Matifying Powder

Friday, 15 July 2011
Hiya,

I have bought so may products from the E.L.F website in the last year or so but always gave the Translucent Matifying Powder a miss. The reason is, that I always felt like it wouldn't do the job that well or that it would be too powdery/heavy/just wouldn't look right.

When there was an offer on the site, I picked up quite a few products and on a whim, decided to pick this up too.
This is a very finely milled powder that is really soft and smooth in texture. It blends in with the skin very easily.

I used it for the first time around three days ago when my face was getting a little bit oily during the day. I applied it using the sponge that comes in the compact and lightly patted some on to my T-zone and a little on my cheeks. I did think it would create a white-ish cast on my face but was glad to know it doesn't! It left my face matte and without a trace of oiliness!

The best thing about it is that although it gets rid of oil on the skin, it doesn't give it a dry, completely matte look. My skin still looks like it is glowing and that is how I like my make up to look. I have been using it every day since and don't have any complaints about it. It was definitely worth the money and I would repurchase if I run out.

Have you tried this powder? What did you think of it?
