Lara Says:: 

I do think that this powder helps to matteify however I’m sure that it does not “erase” pores.  First off I’ve never tried a product that “erased pores”  maybe filled them in and made them less noticeable but not erased.  Second,  I don’t think for the price of this drugstore powder I will be repurchasing.  I think that the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder works just as well for less then $5.  The only advantage to this product is the packaging.  It is in a compact with a mirror and sponge but that is not a selling point for me personally.  Overall this is a good product but I have used other powders that are just as good and not as expensive.

Products I’ve Hit Pan On— e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder in Cool

I bought this powder at Target about 6 months ago and I used it a few times and didn’t think it was anything special so it was put in the back of the drawer.  For whatever reason about a month ago I pulled it out and used it and asked myself why I ever shoved it in the back of the drawer!  This is a great powder for mattifying and I honestly do think that it does help slightly with color correcting.  After checking the e.l.f. website I realize that there are three different types of this powder.  There is a ‘cool toned powder’ (which is what I have), a ‘warm toned powder’ and a ‘shimmer powder’.

This is what e.l.f. has to say about their powder…

Create a balanced and radiant complexion that is beautiful and healthy. The lightweight formula evens out skin tone and absorbs excess oil, and sheer formula brightens, mattes and neutralizes the skin. The colors are meant to be blended together as the Blue neutralizes orange, the Green neutralizes red, the Pink neutralizes grey and the Yellow brightens and neutralizes red.

As you hit pan on this product it does become difficult to use as it starts to crumple.  I think I will pry the rest of this out of the compact, put it in a old powder foundation container and crush it up to use as a loose powder.  I will be repurchasing this product in the future, but first I want to use up at least one more powder in my collection.
