I haven't used the ELF mineral booster yet but I do use a loose finishing powder over my foundation. But I guess I've been using it the wrong way b/c I'd sweep it across all over my face to set my foundation. After watching the video, I'm going to try to just do a really light sweeping over my face to set the foundation, and do an extra step over my t-zone b/c I have an oily t-zone. Thanks for the tip!!! I hope that there will be more videos after this series for the fall/winter too.

Mineral Booster is my absolute favorite... it's my "can't leave home without it" item. I love E.L.F. and their great prices. Can't beat their professional brushes or prices. I recommend to everyone I know!

I got the ELF Mineral Booster a few weeks ago and since then have tried it several times. This powder takes away the oiliness on my T-Zone and it lasts almost throughout the day without any reapplication. It makes my skin looks smoother and silkier. I think the Mineral Booster is a very useful product for the summer time when my skin tends to be a bit oilier. I'd like to see how it will work during the winter though.

I love to wear makeup in the summer to keep my face from shining, but I hate the heavy feel of most makeup. This mineral makeup sounds like something I could wear when it is warm. It is lightweight and keeps the shine away.

wow! Thats what I've been doing wrong all along! I have combination skin... so its oily in T-zone and dry elsewhere & I would always look parched when I put powder on my dry cheeks... so I did away with powder and would remain having an oily Tzone. Great advice! Now I need the right brush like you guys have! cool!
