Elf Cosmetics Beauty Shield Setting Powder Review:

Happy Saturday glamour babes! What do you do when you go through your entire stash of setting powders like they have gone out of style? You don’t walk, you run or drive like a mad women to the nearest Elf Cosmetics Store and try their new Beauty Shield Setting Powder ($8.00 for 0.28 Ounces).

I always gotta have a setting powder on hand. I’m pretty co-dependent on them if you can’t tell. Lol. My skin is super oily/acne prone and this one has been keeping my t-zone and blemishes under wraps quite well.


This loose powder provides sheer, lightweight coverage and can be worn alone for a natural look, or used as a makeup setting powder. The velvety soft texture helps even skin tone, and minimize the appearance of pores for a flawless finish. Formulated with key antioxidants, Licorice Extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin C to help protect your skin against everyday environmental aggressors.

Formulated without:





***Cruelty free and VEGAN!!!!*** Yippie!

Elf’s Beauty Shield Setting Powder comes in two shades-Sheer Natural or Sheer Golden. I bought Sheer Natural. Sheer Golden looked like it was more for medium to deep complexions.

The powder is really nice. Its super smooth, finely milled, lightweight, sheer, has a silky texture. It’s easy to apply, easy to blend, comfortable to wear, sets in a natural/matte finish, does not cake, crack or settle into fine lines, and is suitable for all skin types.

Good thinking Elf with the dial design for less product waste. I like that I can control the amount of powder I need to create a flawless face, while blurring some skin imperfections in the process.

I love how it melts right into the skin after application. It doesn’t come off as chalky or powdery, nor does it leave you looking Casperish.

I do happen to use this setting powder both ways-alone and on top of my makeup to lock everything in place, followed by a setting spray. My complexion is perfection afterwards.

I get about 8 hours of wear time, and my skin stays intact most of the day. Towards the end I start to notice oil peeking through the t-zone area, but that’s fixable.

Definitely check this setting powder out. It’s completely affordable and gets the job done nicely.

Elf’s Beauty Shield Setting Powder is available at Elf Stores and elfcosmetics.com

Stay beautiful! Xo
