E.L.F. Clarifying Pressed Powder Review


Wise She Mega NYX Giveaway Entry 1 by Shilpa,


This is my first product review on Wise She πŸ™‚

I will be  reviewing  E.L.F. clarifying pressed powder. This is a compact powder good for touch ups during the day. It comes in a small pack, the size of a marie biscuit :P. I got a shade called light beige.

There is a small puff in the packaging which fits well inside the case.

My experience with E.L.F. clarifying pressed powder.

The powder gives good coverage with the puff. I also tried using it with an all over face brush but did not achieve the same look as with the puff. Coverage is better with the supplied puff.

I have acne scars so I applied it over my foundation. I have tried this on top of moisturizer as well but it gives me longer results when applied on foundation. I think people with clear skin can use it on top of moisturizer for an even skin tone with no shine. The staying power on my super oily skin is about five  hours.

This did not break me out but did not do anything to improve my skin either. I have large pores and I feel this does nothing to help hide the pores.

Price – The price is ONLY 1$ (yes only Rs 46) and for that price this is a must have item in your kitty  πŸ™‚

    • i got it for 650or 690 about 5mts back…its there now also on ebay…just type in smashbox contouring and ul get it…sooo many options r there…there is a contouring duo also but i liked the trio coz its like an all in one…contour wala shade, blush and highlighter….infact m wearing that tday πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • its also available in alotta H&G outlets…also if u have any cosmetics only stores in ur cuty they shud also have it..but ofcourse they dont carry the entire line…especially the studio line of ELF hasnt entered india at all…baaki alotta stuff is available here..

        • yaa i wonder why such brands do not find a place in India..so many brands are selling such expensive stuff then why not ELF and NYX enter into the market 😐

          • true..i guess nyx has started but alot of girls who know how cheap it is abroad prefer to buy online or thru relatives who r there..

            ELF has a gud chance..infact in blore when I was there, they had alotta stuff…glosses, the e/s quads..but they dint expand.. πŸ™

              • yes…but gals shud try them out..i dunno whether its fear of the unknown but ELF e/s kits r sooo gud t start with..in pune the halat is even worse..can u imagine in my usual store, they have elf nail polish remover pads and manicure sets…but no cosmetics from them…can u beat that?!?!?!

            • NYX unfortunately dosent always have wat i wanted..till i got hooked on to the chambor and MAC concealers i was pretty desperate for their pot concealers..though i finally found a store that sold NYX, the concealers were never in stock..i was looking for the orange one actually..but having said that me very happy with my MAC concealer..the garnier ones are also nice

  1. i like ELF too. I bought their lipglosses recently..paid $3.99 for 5 of them..less than $1 each..and the colors were quite nice too. missed buying the compact though πŸ™ even if i didnt need it, for $1 it wud have been a steal

    • yeps..its pointless buying ELF online..infact buying most drugstore products on ebay is not worth it coz along with shipping charges it comes to too much…once in a while u do get awesome deals tho..
