The lovely Oxford Jasmine kindly sent me some ELF products to try as I had never tried anything from the brand before. She picked some really great products for me, I was really chuffed when I saw this in the parcel.
This comes sheer, shimmer and tinted, I have the shimmer version. With vitamins A, B and E to promote healthier smooth skin, with a "photo finishing touch" all whilst absorbing oil and minimizing fine line and pores. Sounds like a all round wonder product, but does it work? Yes. When I opened this I didn't even realise this was the 'shimmer' versions, it is so finely milled that there isn't any visible shimmer/glitter particles it's just there. I don't think I could call it shimmer, it's more a glow, I'm finding this hard to describe.. It's one of those powders that just had that illuminating like quality within the particles instead of them mixing in the powder and then mixing in the shimmer too. Does that make sense? I hope so.
As for controlling oil this works a dream, it has become my HG powder and I haven't used another products since I opened this. It leaves my skin shine free, smooth and silky. Some powders can leave my pores visible but this seems to mask them
I have been so impressed with what I have tried from ELF so far, and will be placing an order for some more of their studio line soon.
