I purchased the E.L.F. Studio Pressed Powder from iHerb in the shade porcelain. The packaging for this product is quite sleek for such a budget-friendly purchase (I paid about AU$4). It comes with a small puff applicator which I think is quite reasonable for touch-ups and a decent mirror making it a handbag friendly product.
The powder itself is very soft to the touch and quite finely milled. It doesn’t keep me as matte as other powders in my collections and I found that it can look a little cakey if you aren’t sparing in your application.
This is one of those products that is certainly reasonable, but just didn’t work for me due to it being a poor colour match. The porcelain shade is very yellow-toned and is generally too dark for my skin tone. If you are a pale princess like me I don’t think you will find a colour match in this particular range.
Overall, this is a pretty ‘meh’ kind of a product for me. Aside from the fact that it isn’t a colour match, the formula neither wowed me nor overly disappointed. There are certainly other budget-friendly, cruelty-free brands that make powders that I prefer (Australis makes a great one!), and even within the E.L.F. range, I prefer the formula of their Studio Translucent Matifying Powder. Saying that, if you are looking to try something new the E.L.F. Studio Pressed Powder is cheap enough that you can give it a go without risking any great financial loss if it doesn’t work for you.
Have a great day!
