Additional Information

Prime & Stay Finishing Powder is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job This powder is great for setting light makeup, but I think its main virtue is how good it is at creating an even, matte finish to my skin. I have very dry skin because of an acne medication I'm taking, so I often have to spot-treat with some Aquaphor to stop my face from getting all flaky. Obviously, this makes areas of my skin weirdly shiny and oily-looking, but a quick dusting of this powder makes my face look perfectly even for hours. And at two dollars, it's an absolute steal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... Good quality for the price, but runs out very quickly. Also can create a "powder in the wrinkles" or "old grandma with too much makeup" effect. I don't think it made a difference on my face. Good for the price, though.

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!)

Looking for a setting powder - I don't want it to look cakey, just super lightweight, something to set my liquid foundation/concealer with. Do all translucent/sheer powders give flashback? Would the lightest shade of this powder give flashback?

Asked by: apriljoy
I have the lightest shade and is very cakey. It gets stuck in all of your creases. I don't really recommend this product.

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?

Asked by: Clem
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: Loving ELF
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
