Welcome back to the ‘Things I Don’t Love’ series where I discuss products that I just don’t love, or didn’t work for me. Today I want to discuss the E.L.F. High Definition Powder in the Banana shade.
There are two reasons why this product didn’t work for me and neither of them have to do with the formula of the powder itself. This powder is very finely milled and super soft. It applies really nicely to the skin and feels silky. I haven’t tried the translucent shade of this product, but I think I would enjoy it very much and have it on my wish list.
So after all those positives, why has this appeared in my ‘things I don’t love’ series?? Well, because of this….
The tone of this powder is so bright yellow and it is really pigmented. I imagine that for someone out there with a different skin tone to mine, that makes this a perfect product but for me, there is no way I can use this where it doesn’t leave me looking yellow. The effect actually makes my skin look kind of sallow and sickly rather than having the desired brightening effect.
The other con about this product for me is that the packaging of this powder is uber bulky. I believe that E.L.F. has recently repackaged these powders so that may no longer be an issue but I’m just putting it out there.
So, if you are looking for a very pigmented banana powder then I can recommend this one from E.L.F. but if you are a pale girl, you will probably find this to be too pigmented and therefore too yellow to be practical.
Have a wonderful day!
