Hello gorgeous ladies,
When it comes to makeup, I certainly feel the urge to get a look and feel of the product before spending my hard-earned money on it 😉 But when I want to purchase from a super affordable brand like ELF, I don’t have to think twice. I decided to try out the ELF Perfect Finish HD Powder. Let’s find out how it turned out.
This versatile translucent pressed finishing powder sets makeup, reduces shine, and mattifies skin. The micro-fine particles fill in fine lines and blur imperfections to create a soft focus effect on the skin. This powder is designed to be used with high-definition camera technology but is also perfect for everyday wear. Includes a sponge and mirror for on-the-go touch-ups!
CAD 8 (approximately INR 420).
My Experience with ELF Perfect Finish HD Powder:
Packaging: This HD Powder comes in a black cardboard paper box which has all the details of the product and the brand name mentioned on it in white.
The actual product is a white-colored powder compact. Surprisingly enough, this baby also comes with a mirror and sponge or puff!!
The lid shuts securely and is by no means flimsy. A+ for packaging! It’s like any high-end product.
Color: The shade that is mentioned on the packaging is “clear or transparent, but when you look at the powder pan, it’s an opaque white-colored powder. Also, when I swatched it, the powder first appeared quite opaque white and looked un-wearable and scary! But once blended, it does not leave a white cast on the face and sets well.
Pigmentation and Texture: There is no pigmentation as such, which is a good thing as this is supposed to be a setting powder which is clear. The texture of the compact is super finely milled and is extremely smooth on application. It does not feel powdery or chalky by any means. In fact, when I first touched it, I thought it was a smooth and soft cream which gave a powder finish after setting, but it sure is a powder which blends like a dream and turns clear after blending.
Longevity: The staying power of this HD powder is commendable! It lasts all on the skin and keeps the foundation and under-eye concealer in place all day. The wear time extends when set with a setting spray. Even if you have super oily skin, you need not worry about any touch ups.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase ELF Perfect Finish HD Powder?
I would say the quality of this compact powder is fantastic. No wonder it has quickly become one of the best-selling products from ELF. The quality is just like a high-end powder is not better. If given a choice between the Makeup Forever HD Powder and this baby, I would recommend the ELF Perfect Finish Powder taking into consideration the price and the performance. As this baby is super affordable, I would definitely repurchase this and I sure can recommend you to try it out once.
