E.L.F. Studio Line HD Powder

I hardly ever use powder for setting my own make-up as I have normal/dry skin and find that powders only make it look more dull and dehydrated.
Nonetheless, I was very keen on giving E.L.F.'s High Definition powder a go having heard many good things about it - and disappointed I'm not!

The powder is white, fine and feels light and silky. A word of caution - do not apply it with the powder puff included as you'll end up applying way too much product which will leave a white residue on the skin. I like to apply it with either a powder or kabuki brush, buffing it gently into the skin.

I use it to set my foundation, undereye concealer and cream blush. The powder blends well, disappearing into the skin and evening out the skin texture. It doesn't look cakey nor heavy.

I've been reaching for it on a daily basis and have incorporated it into my make-up routine as I find that it makes my skin look soft and fresh. It really does give a smooth and flawless finish to the skin. I've noticed that my face still looks "polished" at the end of the day and I reckon that it's down to the powder.

Have you tried it and what are your thoughts?
