This powder blends well and doesn't settle into creases or wrinkles, it also reflects light so that your skin has a luminous look that is fabulous! If I had to say anything negative it would be the packaging, it is messy and causes you to lose significant amounts of the product. I will definitely keep this in my make-up bag....it is a must when there are photos to be taken!

I decided to give this powder a try and I'm glad I did. The powder itself is pretty good; I apply it with a brush instead of the puff that comes with it and it feels nice going on and stays in place. It's sheer and doesn't provide strong coverage, so it works just fine for a minimal makeup routine. The downside is, the packaging for this powder is terrible. It's a nice looking box that does not close very tightly. There is a sifter insert inside and when you turn the box upside down to sift out some more powder, it leaks out through the gap that remains even when the box is closed as tight as it will go and sends powder clouds everywhere. I pried the sifter out of the box and dip my brush lightly into the powder to use it. (I have a large powder brush and the opening is big enough to accommodate my brush) I like the powder well enough but the packaging/mess really bothers me, so I haven't decided if I'll keep using this or not.

    Comments about e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder, .28 oz:

    I've always had trouble finding a powder that didn't look too dark/orange on my skin. When I saw this, it is so white in the container I was afraid that it would look too theatrical. It goes on great, though, and looks natural. I love it!

      Comments about e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder, .28 oz:

      I decided to try this, I love it, and I just ordered another as backup. For me, this will replace an expensive, high-end, invisible setting powder. This E.L.F. power isn't just a so-so substitute -- it's as good as any high-end powder I've used, and it costs a tiny fraction of the price. My skin is very oily and I have some fine lines, and this powder blurs the lines and keeps me from getting oily for about four hours. And I love the screw-on lid for travel!

        I use this over my under eye concealer to set it. It is amazing. It does not settle in fine lines and does not look powdery. I just bought this after my usual powder was discontinued. I thought it would be too light - but it isn't. I will definitely buy it again.

            Performs just like the MakeUp Forever translucent powder but for a fraction of the cost. A little goes a long way and it mattifies any oily areas. It is finely milled and lightweight, you really have to overdo it to look powdery.

                  I use a tapered face brush to apply it to my t-zone and under eyes. I have combination skin and this prevents my oily areas from getting shiny. It's so lightweight and does not leave a white cast like MakeUp Forever's HD powder. Also, it's a STEAL. You get tons of product and it's great quality. Everyone should have this in their collection.

                      I can't rave highly enough for this product. The E.L.F. HD powder is now my holy grail. I put it over Palladio Rice Powder and the finish is flawless! It gives you a soft glow like no other. This powder is seriously amazing! Some people say it's messy. I don't have that problem because I didn't peel the plastic off all the holes. I did on about a third of them. That way too much doesn't come out. I find it best to put the powder on with the puff that comes with it and buff it into the skin. Best money I've spent!

                        I'm a fair to medium skinned older gal and I've found this powder to really work well for me. I got tired of unscrewing the lid all the time so I glued an acrylic gemstone to the top of the lid and just lift-off-the-lid to use the puff & powder.

                          I read this was a good dup for the Makeup Forever HD powder, having yet to purchase that product I can't compare. I use this to set my foundation and it does a nice job keeping the shine at bay for awhile. I apply it with a puff, then use a powder brush to blend it in. I have yet to find any powder that keeps me shine free all day but this powder is nice and light and doesn't look cakey if I touch up during the day.

                            I really liked this powder gave me a clean matte finish. Before this I used Bareminerals mineral veil they both work as well, but this gave it more of an airbrushed look then the mineral veil.
