I terribly wanted to like this product so much but alas, after a week of continued use, my skin's condition just went from bad to worse. This was my very first Ellana purchase and I had such high hopes that this would be my HG loose powder because for one it has awesome claims and two, it's a better option in terms of sustainability. I wasn't so sure which shade suited me best so I sought the help of one of the Elllana SAs at their stalls. The SA recommended the shade Radiant which I found to be a tad too light for my medium skin tone. I trusted her anyway and ended up buying a refill pack, a brush and a jar. When i got home I immediately tried it out (with Quick FX No Shine Mattifier as a primer) and still felt that Radiant was a bit too light (it really didn't match the shade on rest of my body like on my arms and neck). I decided to roll with it anyway. A few hours after I applied the powder, to my horror, it started caking up like crazyyy! What's even worse was that my skin also started to breakout as well! By the end of the day, my face was a mess but since it was the first day of use, I decided to still give it a chance. A week after, it didn't get any better at all (I've never had any issues with my Quick FX Primer before when I would pair it with Maybelline's Superfresh pressed powder). My skin now resembles a really bumpy road with its fresh crop of zits and accentuated pores. The horror! To this day, in my stubborness I still use the product with the hope that somehow it will miraculously redeem itself. Dear Ellana, I hope you guys see this because I REALLY want to make this work :(about 2 months ago
My favorite foundation! Very pigmented and the coverage is superb! I'm using it for my everyday make up. It doesn't oxidize on my face unlike other foundations I've used. One refill pack is good for a little over a month. I'm definitely buying this again! Cons: can't use cheek tint since it's a powdered formabout 2 months ago
I tried this with the mineral pressed foundation. It definitely has more coverage, but the shades are limited. So I used this on top of the foundation. It really helps conceal my pimple marks, my large pores, and even my dark eye bags which I really loved!! It also feels soft. All in all, it is worth the price!2 months ago
I bought this as an alternative to the discontinued L'Oreal Bare Naturale Mineral Concealer. It was my go-to concealer for when I don't want a lot of make up on but want instant coverage for dark circles. I got the Ellana concealer on sale, and at free shipping so it was an incredibly good deal (Not that it was expensive to begin with. Ellana products are super affordable already!) The coverage is excellent! I got mine in the shade Cheer. It looks quite dark in the container but matches my skin tone pretty well when applied. I use a fluffy round brush to blend. Use sparingly though. It can look cakey when you put on too much. You also get a LOT of product which is great. This will definitely last me a long time. I also love the concept of refillable packaging. I'm not sure if it cuts down waste, but it certainly cuts down cost!4 months ago

When I first saw this in an FB live video by Project Vanity, I knew I had to try it. I always have dark spots and blemishes, and with my usually oily skin, I constantly struggle with cream concealers and foundations. This one really does a good job of hiding my skin’s imperfections with only a small amount of powder that it always gets me ready in no time. Its easily buildable coverage is long lasting too, something I did not really expect from a powder. Its being skin-friendly, cruelty-free, affordable, local and concealer-and-foundation-in-one, all sealed the deal for me. It just never ceases to amaze me every time I use it. Got this in Smile and it is the perfect concealer and foundation for medium with warm tone skin like me.7 months ago
