A while back I had brought my first elf product that happened to be the satin eyeliner. My experience with the eyeliner was great overall so this led me to purchase another elf product, it happened to be the elf smooth and set eye powder.
Of course I didn’t just randomly pick it up as firstly I needed an eye powder and secondly there were some features that really spoke to me when reading the description.
And it’s those features that I’m going to be going through to see how true they are and obviously the aspects that I think would make the product even better in my opinion if they were improved.
This eye powders main aim is to ‘help camouflage fine lines and wrinkles‘ and any other under eye imperfections.

- Affordable pricing
- Smooth and soft formula
- Good to use for under eye
- Small packaging
- Could do with better coverage
What’s best about it?
My first impression without opening it was how small the product was. It was tiny! This made me hope, my slightly first bad impression would change when I try it. And I can tell you it did for the good.
What happens when you don’t get enough sleep or as you age? Dark circles and other under eye imperfections start to appear. And that’s when products like this are here to help.
So what was good about this product?
Okay so I don’t have visible dark circles yet. But on the corners of my eye just below. I have noticeably dark patch for some reason (I think it’s from the way I rest my face on my arm) so that’s where I decided to apply the powder.
At first I was wondering if it’s even possible to cover the small mark due to its sheer powder look but as I continued dabbing it on I was able to thankfully hide my problem. It actually hid away the spludge or whatever it is.
From my experience it’s best applied using a small brush or your fingers.
If you’re having similar problems and are looking for a affordable price worthy product then go for it this definitely did the job for me.
What about wrinkles?
If your wanting to use this on your wrinkles, it’s also still quite an effective item to have(obviously it’s made for that reason).
I used this on my auntie, under her eye and a little above and it nicely settled it, banishing the wrinkles.
One thing I can tell you not to do is if you have wrinkles don’t add too much powder as I’ve noticed it does start to crease especially if using concealer.
A little goes a long way with this one. No wonder it’s packed small!
I did try it on the upper lid to set eyeshadow but it didn’t work as good for me as it did with the under eye.
The eyeshadow just didn’t come out smoothly, there were patches,So I think I’ll stick with the under eye.
Another thing I like about it is the smoothness it leaves when you’ve applied it. It feels smooth and soft to the touch.
I’ve read a few reviews where people are complaining about the sparkle, it may look like a significant amount but if you apply the right amount and blend it, it’s not as noticeable as you’d expect. Adds a nice shine to the face.
Once you’ve applied it the product is visible in a good way. In the way that it brightens your eye, definitely concealing imperfections that your not happy with.
The product itself lasted a good few hours and after only required a few touch ups but nothing major.
Worth buying again?
I most certainly would buy this again but what would make this even more pleasing is if it was available in a bigger size. It’s a great product and does exactly as it says, hiding imperfections.
This powder is superb for oily to combination skin, that’s not to say dry skin peeps won’t benefit from this. If you don’t try, you won’t know.
Although the size is small, if you are using a gentle amount you’d be pleased to know it doesn’t run out as fast. The price is explainable even with the amount of product thanks to the quality.
