Recently I picked up the ELF High Definition Powder in Soft Luminance. I have used the original ELF High Definition Powder before, but had never seen the Soft Luminance shade. I was curious if it would work similar to one of the Hourglass ambient lighting powders and how it would differ from the ELF Illuminating Palette.
Claims: “The e.l.f. High Definition Powder is a translucent, versatile loose powder that creates a flawless, ‘soft focus’ effect to the skin. Masks fine lines and imperfections for a glowing, radiant complexion. This incredibly soft and invisible powder is ideal for everyday wear, either alone or over your favorite e.l.f. foundation.”

Ingredients: Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Red 40 Lake (CI 16035)
Pros: Sets makeup with a subtle shimmer. Doesn’t crease foundation or concealer. Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula.
Cons: The shimmer isn’t really enough to reflect light to make my skin look luminous. Settled into dry spots.
The Verdict: The ELF High Definition Powder in Soft Luminance is a product that I will continue to use, but will probably not buy again. I love their ELF High Definition Powder formula and have used the translucent powder before with great results. The ELF High Definition Powder in Soft Luminance has some of the great qualities of the original. It set my liquid products very well and without any creasing. Unfortunately, the added perks just weren’t there for me. If you are looking for some added luminance, the ELF Illumating Palette is a good option.
