ELF HD Powder

This is probably the hardest review ever. This product is such a good product but you could say its invisible.  If I tell you what ELF claims it does and I'll go from there as its so hard to review!

ELF's store description:

The high definition loose powder creates a "soft focus" effect to the skin. Masks fine lines and imperfections for a radiant complexion. The incredibly soft and invisible powder is great for on-screen and everyday wear.

The microfine particles are designed to be used with high-definition camera technology or for everyday wear. Apply powder all over the face for a professional and youthful look of perfection.

I definately agree with the claims it describes, It makes the skin look calm and soft, no area looks more prominately better or worse than another area and although I don't have any fine lines.
I have one area on my nose that is a crease I got when I whacked my nose on a windowsill when I was younger and sometimes foundation can show this up but if I blend a big of the HD powder on it, it is masked and looks more soft.
I use a small tapered highlighter brush to apply this as I can make it more precise where I want to apply.

The powder itself is pure white yet goes completely transparent when applied to the face. It feels velvet to the touch and when applied to the face it makes your skin look and feel soft and silky.  It works well at making my makeup last and helps redness and blending out harsh lines. It lasts quite a long time and doesnt sink it too much but I wouldn't recommend using a makeup set after this, use it before as it would make the powder go weird if you did. This does hide shine, however it makes it more of a dewy look rather than matte.

Overall this is a strange product, I love it loads but I cant tell you why. It just sets my makeup perfectly with a lovely finish, it prolongs how lasting my makeup is aswell as making my face look perfect in pictures. I love it but am unsure if I would repurchase just because I could see there complexion perfection doing the same job. This product holds 8g, which is quite a lot but for £6 you expect to receive this amount anyway.

Hope you liked this review, sorry its not brilliant but it is a hard product to review as it isn't an obvious enhancement like a foundation or pressed powder. 

Let me know if you need any more answers to this product,
