Review E.L.F. Cosmetics: Studio HD Powder

E.L.F. Cosmetics: Studio HD Powder

My Evaluation: The high definition loose powder (HDLP) sells for $6 USD. As you can tell it is a white powered, but once applied to the skin it is translucent. It’s a fantastic product that  is light weight, minimizes large pores, and makes my skin look soft and silky. I like to use the HDLP to set my foundation and eye makeup. The powder enhances my appearance in photographs, matifies my skin, and controls shine.  The formula does not “wash” one out or give one a geisha appearance.  The container is beautiful, but a bit bulky. 

How-to-use: I find that the brush a better tool than the powder puff. I use my Studio kabuki face brush to apply the HDLP.  I lightly dust the powder on  my cheeks and eyelids, and buff the formula into my T-zone. A little bit of the product goes a long way; don’t over apply the HDLP. I use the puff  as a "lid" to keep the powder from spilling out when I'm not using it.

Final words: People with sensitive skin should be cautious of using HDLP since silicon may irritate the skin. People with dry skin be sure to moisturize well before using this product.  I recommend this product to people who have normal to oily skin. 

Overall grade: A-

I think I suffer brain damage from the loudness of the song. XD

Tip...I guess it's a little late to be telling you this but don't pull off the entire tab of the tape. You should have pulled half of it off then you can control the amount of powder that comes out. Oh well better luck next time.
