One thing I learnt in my makeup journey is that I need a different setting powder for my under eyes than what I use for the rest of my face. My regular setting powder would make my under eye skin feel tight and dry and sips into all my wrinkles and fine lines.
Then, I noticed that most of MUAs are using a different product for under eye. A loose powder!
I did my own research and one of the best under eye setting powder is the one by Laura Mercier. But what’s even better, a lot of people would say it is very comparable to the one by e.l.f. And price wise… it is $25 (Laura Mercier) vs $3 !!!
My choice was obvious :) I may be getting the one by Laura Mercier one day since everyone is so madly in love with that powder, but I’ll stick with the one by e.l.f. for right now cause I really loved it.
This light-diffusing powder camouflages fine lines, dark circles and imperfections, perfect for on camera or everyday wear. The silky powder adds a velvety finish ideal for wearing alone or setting in cream concealer. The Vitamin C & K infused formula helps to restore and strengthen skin for a revitalized appearance.
Plastic jar. I find it quite bulky for just 0.04oz / 1.2g of product. I love that it comes with a sifter. This way I don’t get the powder all over the place. I just tap a little powder into the lid, swirl the brush in there and apply it.
It is so lightweight! Feels like nothing on. Very silky and applies smoothly. You might notice some glitter in it, but once you apply it on the skin you don’t see nothing. I guess that sparkling dust works like a light diffuser.
This setting powder has no color. It is sheer. Translucent. Call it however you prefer more. You need just a very thin layer of it to make it work.
Keeps my under eye area crease free for the whole day. It’s a miracle for me. It does such a good job on setting my concealer and at the same time it’s not drying. Also it works as a fine lines eraser.
This setting powder is definitely a keeper in my makeup stash.
And what I love the most about this powder I don’t have troubles with dark eye shadows fall out!!! It just brushes off so easily. The eye shadows don’t stick to it.
I think e.l.f. high definition setting powder is totally worth trying! It may become one of your must-have’s too :)
Have you already tried it? Please let me know :)
