I have been using this powder for years! At less than $3 this product comes straight from heaven! It is a finely milled powder that mattifies the face without adding an extra thick layer of makeupy weight. This powder also helps to control oils without drying out the face. The translucent shade works great for all skin colors.
It comes with a circular cosmetic makeup sponge over an opaque white sifter. I don’t use the sponge, but instead use a large fluffy brush like the e.l.f. Studio Complexion Brush ($3) or the e.l.f. Essential Total Face Brush ($2). I tip the container over and use whatever powder is in the cover to dust lightly over my face. I generally first start by applying to my chin, the nose, the forehead and cheeks. Of course whichever order you choose to apply the powder onto your face is up to you.
As the day goes on, after blotting any excess oil off of my face, I will often reapply a light dusting of powder to my T-Zone. Even after adding this extra layer of powder to my face it doesn’t look built up or cakey.
