e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder

Yay for the long weekend! :D

Labor Day usually marks the unofficial end of summer -- it's September, school will start soon (if it hasn't already), and we're all gearing up for fall fashion.

In honor of the unofficial end of summer, I just wanted to share with you guys one product that has been on my summer staples list:

e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder


Create a balanced and radiant complexion that is beautiful and healthy. The lightweight formula evens out the skin tone and absorbs excess oil. The 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.

Blend the powder over the entire face to brighten and even out the skin tone as well as neutralize any redness.

Price: $3


This has been a lifesaver especially because these past couple of weeks (months, even!), I've spent a lot of time under the sun -- by the pool, running errands, or just going on an afternoon walk. And because of that, my nose and forehead are almost always shiny and red.

This definitely helps neutralize and decrease the redness in my face. It evens out my skin tone, and I also noticed that my face doesn't get as oily as it did before.

I use it as a setting powder - I apply it on top of my foundation or tinted moisturizer. It gives my face a matte finish, and helps my foundation or tinted moisturizer stay on longer.

The packaging is very sleek! The compact comes with a good-sized mirror - definitely way better than the mirror e.l.f. eyeshadow quads have. And come on, how cool are those colors?!

Complexion Perfection

At $3, you cannot go wrong!
It is an excellent product sold at a really affordable price. :)

Have you used e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder?
How did it work for you?

I wish all of you a wonderful weekend ahead!
And for my blogger friends here in America, have a happy Labor Day weekend! :D

    looking for something to even out my skin tone without
    having to apply on any type of light foundation.

    I need some fw tips. :-)

  15. Peiji-- this could be it for you too! :)

  24. good by summer helloooo fall!

    whaaaat $3?!!! I dont think we could get make up for that price over here in London!

  25. I know that powder gets a bad reputation, sometimes, but it's all in the application. I use it to set my cream and foundation -- like a top coat. It really helps the makeup last longer!
