e. l. f. Tone Correcting Powder: Photographs and Review

Hello gentle readers.

I was in my local Target a few weeks ago and I happened to find myself in the general area of an e.l.f. cosmetics display. Now, e.l.f. is a brand I haven't had any experience with. No reason, really. Up until fairly recently, e.l.f. wasn't very easy to get in my area but my local Target is now stocking a lot of the line and it is easier for me to pick up on a whim, instead of having to order online. For my first e.l.f. experience, I decided to purchase the Tone Correcting Powder. I recalled that quite a few of the gals I watch on YouTube regularly rave about that powder, particularly for setting their under eye area and I thought, hey, for three clams, why not give it a whirl?



The e.l.f. Tone Correcting Powder comes in a large, rectangular, lightweight black plastic compact. The contents is a pressed powder cake weighing 13.5 g,  0.4762oz. There is a large mirror in the lid of the compact. The packaging looks nice. It feels smooth, rounded and lightweight and inexpensive in the hand. My compact has a small defect on the top; several small darker splotches that aren't visible in this photograph.

My camera killed the colours of this powder. It is more pastel than this. 

Tone Correcting Powder Claims:


  • Creates a balanced and radiant complexion that is radiant and healthy.
  • The lightweight formula evens out the skin tone and absorbs excess oil.
  • The sheer formula brightens and neutralizes the skin.
Directions: Blend the powder over the face to brighten and even out the the skin tone as well as neutralize any redness.

This powder is lightweight, finely milled and lightly pigmented. The pastel tones of yellow, blue, pink and green blend together to create the perfect setting powder for my under eye area. I swirl a small, very soft brush in all four quadrants, tap of any excess powder in the brush then lightly sweep it on over my corrector, concealer and brightener to set and lock them in place for hours.

I haven't used this all over my face. I prefer a translucent powder when I want to set my foundation.

I have to say, I like this powder. I like it a lot. I am really surprised at how well it performs and I love the price tag. If you are on the hunt for a lightweight tone correcting powder for your face/under eye area, I recommend that you swing by your local Target or hit e.l.f.'s website and pick this baby up and give it a try.

Have you tried the e.l.f. Tone Correcting Powder? What do you think of it? Are there other e.l.f. products that you absolutely love and recommend I try? I saw a blush/bronzer combo that looks kind of promising...

Thank you so much for taking a little time to come by. Stay cool and have a great day!
