E.L.F.'s Studio High Definition Powder Review

I've been wanting to try E.L.F.'s HD powder for awhile now, but didn't buy it until recently.  I was with my brother in law at Target awhile back and asked him if I should get the Hd Powder.  He asked me what it does and I replied, "It's an invisible powder that supposedly masks fine lines and blemishes"...  He then proceeded with a different perspective saying something along the lines of how ridiculous it was that I wanted to buy an "INVISIBLE" powder.  If you think about it, it is so funny how we are paying money for products that don't even show up LOL.  BUT, in defense:
eyes lips face

"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. Our HD Powder is a makeup artist and e.l.f. customer favorite, and at only $6, it can be yours at a fraction of the cost of the competition!  

The microfine particles are designed to be used with high-definition camera technology or for everyday wear. Apply powder all over the face for a professional and youthful look of perfection.  "

So I decided to put it to the test and see if it actually makes a difference.  I applied the Hd Powder with E.L.F.'s studio Kabuki brush.  In my opinion, you shouldn't go crazy with this powder because if you put too much I personally noticed it starts looking like you put white powder on your face... not cute.  If you do this lightly though, it does blend in and is unnoticeable.  I actually really enjoy this product.  It seems so silky and soft and I notice a difference from the get go.  I used the powder to set my foundation.  As you can see from the picture below, it does mask pores, bumps and fine lines.  Yes, the first picture is actually kind of embarassing....It says that it's supposed to leave a glowing, radiant complexion but I didn't really notice that.  Instead, it "mattified" (is that a word....well it is now) my face and made it look smoother.  I seriously did not use photoshop or any editing to blur my skin in these pictures.  I was genuinely surprised at the outcome and I would recommend this product !  

Hope this was helpful!  Do you plan on purchasing this product or a similar one?  Let me know what you guys think! :) Thanks for reading.
