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…!

Let’s take a look!

Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder Review & Swatches

Ahh Almay they LOVE all that Smart Shade technology. Surprised they haven’t released a Smart Shade of lipgloss yet because they pretty much have all the other Smart Shade categories cornered.
