ELF High Definition Powder in Translucent *Review*

The ELF High Definition Loose Powder is a white silca powder meant for setting foundation and creating a HD base. It retails for £6 on the ELF website, and is hyped up as a dupe for the Makeup Forever HD Powder.

The packaging is really chunky, and quite impractical. The black is really nice and sleek, and the shape is interesting and something quite unique but it's not something you can throw in your bag and it doesn't travel well. 

The puff is a nice addition, and it helps keep the powder from flying every where if you keep it in the jar. It does get horribly dirty if you use it to set foundation, and does look gross but it's decent quality, and works if you don't have a brush. I preferred to use the real techniques buffing brush or powder brush with the powder though. 

The powder is really nice. It sets foundation really nicely, knocking out the shine and keeping the liquid in place. It is translucent, at least on my skin tone, and doesn't leave a white cast. I haven't tested it with flash photography, so I can't tell you anything about flash back. It lasted such a long time, like most loose powders, and because it's a nice finely milled powder it doesn't cake up foundation to easily. 

Overall, I think the ELF HD Powder is so worth it. I would say try it if you want something that keeps foundation in place, gives you a more perfected look and it is really affordable.
