E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder Review & Swatches
E.L.F. when you do things right you do things right and your new Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder is all kinds of right.
At some point in my makeup life I avoided powder under my eyes in a major way. It was aging me terribly and just wasn’t a good idea all around. I discovered Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and proceeded to hate all over it. At the time I was just starting to have issues with dryness under my eyes and was really struggling with how to treat the issue. Needless to say after I started moisturizing my eyes properly I enjoyed Laura’s powder and later discovered even nicer products for settling my concealer like Skin Food’s Salmon Powder and Benefit Powderflage.
Needless to say when E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder launched I was curious. Three dollar setting powder? Mmmm…!
Take a look!
Although smaller than Laura’s own version this setting powder is still a value. Laura’s Setting Powder is $22 for 0.14 oz where as E.L.F.’s version is $3 for 0.04 oz. Even if you buy four E.L.F. High Definition Undereye Setting Powders at three dollars each you’ll STILL saving money as it would only set you back $12 which would be the equivalent in size of purchasing one Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for $22.
E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder kinds reminds me of a cross between Laura’s version and Benefit’s. This is a translucent pinkish powder with a hint of shimmer. The texture of the powder mimics that of any silica powder in the fact it’s silky, applies transparent with a bit of brightening, and has a thinner consistency.
Since the powder is so thin it applies perfectly under eyes and sets concealer without creasing into finer lines or wrinkles. It creates the illusion of brighter eyes as it blurs imperfections and sets concealer for longer wear. I find setting concealer with powder does indeed allow it to wear long and strong all day.
One rant…it comes with a brush for application but I find it useless. It would be a more suitable eyeliner brush rather than one for buffing powder under eyes.
Overall, I can’t rave this one enough! Granted, I still love my Skin Food version and nothing can take the place of it in my heart but this is a cheap, inexpensive way to set concealer, brighten eyes, and create a smooth canvas under eyes for so much less. Look out Laura, E.L.F. finally has something they can taunt you with! A cheap thrill that’s worth picking up!
