Ever buy something purely because someone on YouTube told you to? Welcome to my world.

livloveshermakeup here and on Instagram has been extolling the virtues of this elf color correcting powder for quite some time now. I have pretty dry skin so I generally don’t wear too much powder but I’ve been looking for different things to add into my daily routine and this $4 product seemed like a good fit.

It’s light, it’s airy, it gives a matte but natural appearance and sinks into my skin instead of just sitting on top. I’ve used it right before setting spray to blend in my blush and light contour and I’ve used it first before applying any face products, either way it seems to work the same.

I don’t feel that this powder did anything to tone down any of my redness and uneven skin tone but I’m OK with that. I’ll be using this daily as an all over face powder.

Did I mention it was $4? Did I? $4.

  1. Please. Don’t even go there with the products purchased due to YouTubers. I just purchased a Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Eye Shadow Palette. Tarte is one of those brands that, for me, either the product is a complete hit or a complete miss. This palette is a miss for me. I’ll give the palette to my daughter.
    Same with e.l.f. cosmetics–it’s either hit or miss. I DO love the cream contours by e.l.f. and I have this exact corrector palette but the powder doesn’t work for me nor does it correct any of my redness.
    Ya win some. Ya lose some!!!! I’m off to tour your concealers.

    1. I know what you mean, I’ve got to lay off the Youtubers.

      I have the same experience with Tarte. Their packaging is so cute but the actual products… you just never know. At least your daughter will benefit from it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Aww, sorry I psych’d you out with that. It definitely does NOT do anything for color correcting that I saw. Stilla great finishing or setting powder though ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I had never tried anything from elf! But I heard great things about them! Great post ๐Ÿ’ž maybe I’ll pick this up on my next shopping hunt hehe๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ
