e.l.f.’s Clairfying Powder Is Not My New Favorite Thing

By Sheila Arkee

In my continuing efforts  attempts to expand my product horizons I turned to e.l.f. to try some new things. At the low, low, low prices of either $1, $3, and occasionally $6, I figure they’re all worth the try.

Containing Salicylic Acid, e.l.f.’s Clairfying Pressed Powder promises to smooth your skin while fighting acne at the same time. Part of e.l.f.’s $1 line, the packaging is extremely unassuming with an added powder puff. I chose Tone 3 which was a perfect match for my olive skin.

In terms of the coverage I have to say it’s impressive. Definitely not a translucent powder, this has some heft to it and would be great on top of concealer for every day wear. My disappointment with this lies with the amount of oil control this powder provides. ne of the main ingredients is kaolin, aka clay, which is a commonly used ingredient for controlling oil prodution.

Being normal to oily I expect having a little bit of a “glow” at the end of the day, but when I say I was greasy after a couple of hours it is the understatement of theyear. As soon as I put on the powder I was starting to experience oil breakthrough, which is the last thing I want to see. Disappointment!

With every single makeup line in existance you will find both winners and losers. I’ve found some true winners with e.l.f. in the past, but unfortunately this powder is not one of them.

You can find e.l.f. products at Target and eyeslipsface.com.
