I got this product because of shaaanxo on youtube because she raves about it and I love shaaanxo. I have issues with pretty much every concealer I have tried, they will always crease in my undereye fine lines. And I'm only 22, so I can't imagine what it's going to look like in ten or twenty years lol. I really hoped this was going to be the solution to my problem.
This powder is super light and fine, so it blends out to nothing and you definitely cannot detect it on the skin. It does not look powdery or cakey whatsoever, which is a great bonus.
This powder does have shimmer. You can see it in the jar, and once it's on the skin, you can see a couple particles in the right lighting, but it's nothing crazy and it doesn't bother me.
After watching this video showing one of my favorite YouTubers tarababyz foundation technique, I realized what I had been screwing up the entire time. I started applying my concealer not directly up to the lower lash line, but just before it gets to my undereye fine lines, and using the setting powder to blend out and set the entire undereye area. This has saved me and makes me super happy. I no longer get stupid creasing in my concealer, plus this ELF setting powder actually really does cover enough that you can't even notice that I didn't apply concealer all the way to the lower lashes line.
This powder has a blurring effect that, when applied as I described, makes the undereye area look flawless. I haven't noticed a white cast under my eyes in photos and I think it has something to do with how fine the powder is, it doesn't cake up to make that area reflective in flash photos. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product especially for lighter skin girls like myself, I'm not sure how it would turn out on medium or deep skin tones. Also, try applying concealer a little lower and let me know how it works out, I am loving the results. I don't find that this powder prevents creasing when I use it in the old fashion, but once I've started using this technique, I love this powder.
Thanks for reading.
