Review: ELF Studio Complexion Perfection

Before I decide to purchase this, I've googled over the net and read many hypes and raves about this. I was so excited about thus but unfortunately is was a downturn to me. ELF Studio Complexion Perfection 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. All you need to do is just blend the powder over the entire face to brighten and even out the skin tone as well as neutralize any redness.
As you can see, the product come with a black sleek and sophisticated style compact which a big mirror. The 4 colors pastel containing yellow to correct the dark eye circles, blue for highlighting, green for correcting redness and neutralising red acne scars an pink to cover the green veins and give your face a perfect radiant glow.I've tried to swatch the colors but the colors is too sheer to show up. Thus this proved that the powder is very light and sheer. I've tried using a big buffer brush to swirl the powder on my face but it did nothing. This probably works better by using the color individually.

I used the yellow shade to set my under-eye concealer and it does great. But if you expect to use the powder to cover your dark eye circles, then it might disappoint you. For the blue shade, I never try it as I'm unsure about the purpose. The pink shade is said to give a radiant glow to my face but I guess it does not show up on my NC30 skin. Do let me know if it works for fairer skin?

I used the green shade with a tapered crease brush to blend on my nose and my red acne scars.
As the color is too sheer, I have to use surprisingly a large amount to neutralise the redness. Yet, the coverage is still blah for me.

Rating: 2/5

Overall, it was quite a disappointment to me. I reckon that this is just not suitable for acne-prone skin and darker skin. But if you have a fair and good skin, this might helps you a bit in correcting the little redness and dark-eye circles. If you expect higher coverage from this, you might as well look for another concealers.
