Additional Information

Prime & Stay Finishing Powder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely Worth It! I bought this two months ago, and I was in complete shock when I used it. It blended easily, mattified my face, and I sometimes use it as a concealer because it has such great coverage. I ordered the medium/dark powder. This is my go-to powder and costs next to nothing! Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this back in November and haven't stopped using it since. It is really fantastic for me. I use it after applying all my make up and it leaves my skin smooth and Oil free all day long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not true to color I bought the light to medium just looking without opening it's way way too dark. a yellowish tan. I'm a brunette with medium toned skin this color does not look right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh This doesn't improve or degrade my make-up, key word is "translucent". I would not say that it helps make-up to stay longer, and is basically useless. I do like elf products overall, and since it was cheap no big loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives in my purse I bring this with me to address any shiny spots that appear throughout the day. Nice and thin package that fits in any makeup bag. With my light skin, the translucent shade is perfect. (But e.l.f.? Add more shades!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Go To Powder! I bought a couple of these back over the summer with the intention to use them to set my liquid makeup. I usually wore a very sheer base by mixing the liquid with my moisturizer but then I realized I could get great sheer coverage by just dusting on a couple layers of this powder with a large fluffy brush. It still gives good coverage, hides imperfections and blurs the few small lines I have. I just touch up with a bit more throughout the day if needed. I've never liked the feel of liquid makeup on my skin and this gives me the polished look I want, but it feels like I'm not wearing makeup. I've been using the medium/light one and I bought the sheer as well but wish there was a Fair/Light type version as the sheer doesn't have much coverage. As we move into winter my skin gets a bit paler. They are small but the price is great and I like that it take up so little room in my purse. Just please make a lighter non-sheer version!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for touch ups I use it mostly for touch-ups on the go, it’s a perfect size for the purpose and it never makes my makeup look caky, just removes the shine. I also use it for under eyes and it works well. I apply it with the brush

Does this come with any type of applicator puff or brush?

Asked by: rocky068
No. It comes by itself but ELF makes puffs, sponges and *great* brushes

Does the prime & stay finishing powder have to be lighter or the same shade as your foundation.

Asked by: McWhite72
Unless it's translucent it should be the same shade as your foundation. Hope this helps :)

I am 67 yrs old and currently use your translucent powder. If I use the Prime and Stay powder, will it make the lines in aging skin underneath my eyes look better? The translucent seems to accentuate them?

Ive found that this powder does very little it will only set makeup you have on

same questions as others- but not when, but why is this not available? I have never seen this offered, and all reviewers have given it 5 stars- are these a test panel?

Asked by: chellee
This product is often sold out. I doubt elf anticipated how well it would sell. They are very savvy so I am betting that they will remedy the shortfall by increasing the amount of product that they make available. They have already expanded from one to four shades. Hope you are listening  elf..!

Is this powder truly too light for dark (NC50) skin? I ask because I like to be heavy-handed with my finishing powder.

Asked by: Ms Oily Acne
I don't think your question was out of the ordinary. A lot of translucent powders leave a cast/Grey look on women of color!  So just because it's "translucent " doesn't mean it CAN'T LEAVE a unordinary finish on dark skin tones ..for the people that keep replying  (as says in description ) ! Just like the Cody airspun powder

Is this powder useful on any skin tone?

Asked by: Sharon8605
It is a translucent powder (as described in the product detail/info) so just like other translucent powders, it can be used for just about all skin tones.

does it have glitter in it?

Asked by: ts3190
NO! It's a matte/satin finish translucent powder, as product details/info, states. It is really good a a "primer powder" making your foundation stick/last longer (a neat trick by MAU Wayne Goss is to prime your face with a translucent powder THEN foundation for the summer time making it almost/just about sweat proof) and is also great for those light/no make-up makeup days.
