Rated 4 out of 5 by from WARNING CONTAINS PARABENS! I got this a long, long time ago. I still have it and use it. It doesn't make me breakout. (AMAZINGLY). But I found out it has, (drum roll please) PARABENS. Parabens are in most makeup brands you buy and can also cause breakouts. Parabens are terrible for skin! I recommend this to people who aren't prone to breakout.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for dry skin. I wasn't too excited with this purchase to begin with because my skin type isn't good with pressed powders. Alas, the result is exactly what I expected. First off, yes, it was bad on dry skin. Like...really bad. I've been able to wear mineral foundation for weeks and it hasn't showed my dry skin, but this product showed it all no problem. Second, being really pale I was afraid of this but it does turn a bit darker and orange-y, but I guess that's to be expected when you're pale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better I would most definitely recommend this is you have very oily skin & are looking for a quick touch-up during the day. Me personally, I have very dry skin and i don't normally need to set my liquid foundation. But the color match is spot on. I'm mixed and have a very olive skin tone so it can be hard to find something to match me. I bought this in the shade Honey & it is perfect. The only thing negative about this is that after i had opened it one time, the lid wont close & the overall quality of the packaging sucks. If you really want or need a pressed powder for a higher quality product i would recommend the ELF Studio pressed powder it has better packaging and is only $3.00. But i would say with this you get what you pay for and its only $1.00. Also it has a very weird powdery smell that filled up my sisters room with a nasty smell. BUT being a dollar it didn't quite bother me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dry skin, or for finished look on oily This is the type of powder that I think is great on everyone, except if you're sensitive(as this has fragrance).  On my mother's dry skin, this makes her look smoother and polished all by itself and she also uses it to set her foundations.  This is by no means an "oil control" powder, so you may have to look elsewhere if that's a problem.  I have a very oily t-zone and normal to dry skin everywhere else.  Usually I look for a powder that helps me feel and look matte, so I gave it to my mom.  Even with very matte foundations, I like to set it with a powder just to be sure.  For a very special occasion, a wedding where I was bride's maid, I forgot my powder, so my mom loaned me hers.  I looked human again!  If you've ever wondered about finishing powders from mid-range to high end lines, then look no further.  This gives a satiny-matte, lit-from-within natural glow that looks beautiful on top of matte foundation, or by itself if you have a regular to drier skin type. The only cons is that it is pretty powdery, so use a light touch.  It does have a sheer coverage, so you look enhanced rather than made up.  By itself, on my oily skin, it did get shiny very quickly and that was enhanced by the glowiness of the product.  Also, while this doesn't clog pores, it certainly doesn't exfoliate the skin and cure acne.  The Studio Pressed Powder(to dry for drier skin types but good for regular to oily skin), or the Studio Translucent Mattifying(though not translucent, it comes in other shades) Powder are the way to go if you want affordable, but effective oil controlling powders

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was Skeptical at First... I'm not typically one for pressed powders, but was in a pinch and needed to do my makeup. At first, I thought I wasn't going to like it, because it almost had a chalky texture, but once it set into my skin, I was pleasantly surprised at the finish. I loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Oily Skin! I have had this for a long time and i love it! Some of Elf's foundations and concealers are more on the orange toned side, so i got a lighter color and it works great! I love using the Elf Studio Kabuki Brush with this! My skin type is changing a lot, but I have figured out that i am very combination skin so i have been setting only my "T" Zone with this and i love it! Total a product you should at least try! It's so cheap and great I think you'll love it like me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it Ive been using this a little over a week now and love it. I apply it with a bronzer brush and when I use this I do not need foundation. Its so fast and easy to brush this on and go. I have acne prone skin and this hasnt made me break out and covers well!!
