In this article I thought I might tell you not only about one of my favorite makeup brands, but also my favorite product from them. I love ELF, so much. If you are as addicted to buying makeup as I am, then you know how very expensive it tends to get. At ELF, pretty much everything they sell is either $1, $3, or $5 and they constantly have coupon codes going. The only downside to ordering online is their shipping, which is about $6.95 I believe, and they almost never have coupons for shipping. Our local target sells some of the products they have available, but not all of them. All of their products are of a nice quality, except for maybe some of those $1 brushes. The $3 and $5 brushes are really nice though.
I suppose I need to tell you about the actual powder now, haha. I have it in "porcelain" which works almost as a translucent powder for me, but they have other colors. I don't know how well some of these might work on anyone with darker skin tones, but for $3 you may as well give it a shot. I don't have oily skin so I can't really say how well it will keep you matte in that case. I use this primarily to set my tinted moisturizer, so that my face doesn't look all shiny. The packaging is really nice, and it's a bit similar to NARS packaging if you've ever bought anything from them.
Overall I think you should really check out both ELF and this powder, because you really can't beat those prices. (:
