E.L.F. has finally won me over! Review of Loose Translucent Powder


If you follow my blog then you understand my relationship with E.L.F. products.  I have finally found a translucent powder that works well, heck, even better than my high end translucent powders and I must say I am surprisingly pleased.  For a product that only costs six dollars I was not expecting these kinds of results.  As you can tell from my last FOTD this product left my face seeming poreless!  I LOVE THAT! One of the things that I found to be different in this product in comparison to other loose translucent powders is how finely milled it is, sure other brands tell you that there's is also finely milled but not like E.L.F.'s!  It's almost like a powder and water mixture, literally.  It doesn't take a lot of product to get a desired finish but I tend to use a hefty amount because I am a very oily girl and I need to look matte in these streets! LOL!

It lasted all day on me without the need to touch up and when I got home my face was just as fresh as when I left home (just a tad oily on my nose but that's a good thing!).  Others may think that the packaging is bulky and inconvenient but I don't mind because I don't plan to haul it around with me in my purse.  It also comes with a cute powder puff inside to apply the powder.  I'm not a huge fan of powder puffs so I put mine away.

Another thing you must know is the amount of product release that comes out of the container.  Product comes out of the sifter and if you're not careful you can have a mess on your hands.  So in order to prevent that mess only cut the clear tape over the sifter half way, that way powder only comes out in a reasonable amount and not all over the packaging.  :)

I was able to score mine off a whim on the E.L.F. website for 6 bucks but I also know that these can be found at your local Target stores.  The shipping was prompt and the shipping costs were reasonable. 

I also purchased a few other products that will be coming up in a post soon, so be on the look out!  :)

What do you think about E.L.F.?  Have you tried this product before?  Thoughts?


  1. I need to try this! I've liked all the ELF products I've tried so far.

  2. I've heard so many great things about this product. *Funny thing* I was just in Target, in the ELF section, and I bought everything else, except for this powder SMH. Definitely gonna go back to pick it up.
