Review of E.L.F. Cosmetics: Studio Complexion Perfection

E.L.F. Cosmetics: Studio Complexion Perfection

This is one of my favourite ELF products because it is super affordable ($3.00 USD). I also like the case; it is sleek, durable, and sophisticated.  :P

My Evaluation: Complexion Perfection (CP) is a translucent lightweight powder that is easy to apply, and it is matifying and it absorbs excess oils. Sometimes I like to wear the product alone, and other times I use it over my foundation.

Some people have complained that CP "washes" them out or that it looks like they are wearing a white mask... Luckily I don't share those kinds of experience. I find that the versatile product has a natural feel and look on my skin. CP evens out my skin's imperfections (i.e. redness from my acne scars), neutralises other facial discolouration (like dark circles under my eyes), and brightens my face.

How-to-use: I take my kabuki brush and swirl it around the four colors then gently sweep it across my face. If I have redness on my checks, I load my powder brush with the green formula and apply it to that problematic area. I find that the pink formula can serve as a subtle blush.

Final words: I think this product will work well for people with normal to oily skin. People with dry skin may experience flakiness with this product; be sure to moisturize well before use. I recommend CP because it doesn't clog pores, and it gentle on the skin.

Overall grade: B+

What is the shelf life of ELF make-up? I still have a lot of products at home and still need to be used...but I'm very tempted to get this product.....
