Nice coverage but lightest color is too dark for fair skin.

when i bought this foundation, the store's lightest shade was sand at the time and i wasn't sure if it would match my skin tone and i generally have a hard time finding a foundation that matches my pale face. because of this, it looks slightly orange on me but i won't be saying anything else about it because that's not e.l.f.'s fault i chose a slightly darker foundation. (plus, i found that it helps to mix some lotion with the foundation to make it look slightly lighter.)i really like how it's covered up my acne! it does a great job of covering any zits i have. plus, i really enjoy the pump! it makes it very easy to get out of the bottle which is always great!

I've been experimenting with many foundations lately. I've worn MUFE HD foundation for a few years, but recently, the foundation was looking cakey and just not right. Skin changes and I guess as I age my skin keeps changing. The only drug store foundation I've ever worn is L'Oreal's Perfect Match in C3 ten years ago it worked for me but now I'll only use it from time to time. The two foundations I've been using at present are Marc Jacobs and Givenchy Tient Couture. Both are very pricey and I'm trying to use them sparingly. I had this idea to mix high end with low end....On a whim, I purchased E.L.F. Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain. To tell you the truth, there is not a large spectrum of foundation colors with this foundation and porcelain looked slightly yellow but for six bucks I figured what the heck.The next day, I decided to do a bit of a comparison with the Givenchy. Although the Givenchy Tient was slightly more pink--and very slightly, I did notice that the E.L.F. foundation was a bit thicker and creamier. I decided against mixing the two and instead wore the E.L.F. on it's own--I really needed to see if this would oxidize on me. Mind you, before I applied the foundation, I applied primer first. I proceeded to wait ten minutes for the primer to "set" then went about applying the E.L.F. foundation with my Beauty Blender. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the results after applying. The foundation did not appear "chalky" on my "mature" skin, nor did it "settle" in the fine lines. All in all--it looked pretty darn nice. I did a bit of highlighting, contouring, added blush, swiped on Meteorites and went about my day. This was at 7:15 in the morning.At 5:30 PM, when I got home, I noticed that the foundation never oxidized. I was thrilled because I AM the original Jackie-O-Lantern when it comes to oxidation! When I cleaned my face, the foundation came off in the cloth--proving the foundation did the job of staying put all day.Next day I mixed the E.L.F. with the Givenchy. Again, I was pleased but I have to tell you, for the pricing of the E.L.F. foundation, I'm shocked that it is this good. I will definitely purchase again. I will also be using this as my "travel" foundation because if I leave it behind, it'll only be a six buck loss. I'm telling you--this foundation proved itself and for me to travel with it says a lot.Thank you for reading my review and I hoped that it helped a bit. Oh. I gave it four lipsticks because I'm now of the mindset that it'll be a very, very incredible foundation that I will give five lippies to in the future!

I purchased the E.L.F. Flawless Finish Foundation on a whim at a Target store while on a business trip in Bellingham. I am very fair and always have a hard time finding foundations light enough for me; my standard operating procedure is to buy the lightest shade and hope it's light enough, so I purchased this in the shade Porcelain. It's still just a tad too dark for me, which is my only complaint about this product. I bought this in August, so if I blend well it's close enough to my "summer complexion" to not be noticeable, we'll see what winter brings. Anyway, I do really like this foundation. The coverage is light, which is what I like, and it can be built up to medium if you want more coverage in certain areas. I apply it with an ordinary cosmetic wedge, which works well for me. The finish is dewy but very natural looking, people don't notice that I'm wearing foundation. I am not sure what the other shades are like, but if you are fair and have cool undertones, Porcelain will be too yellowy for you, I have warm tones so it works for me, it also helps even out some areas of redness on my face. It does not hide freckles or spots, but I like being able to see my freckles, and if I have blemishes I want to hide I just use concealer on them. It has a good consistency, not too thick or runny, and it feels good on the face. I have combination skin (mostly dry but my nose and chin get oily), and this keeps my dry areas hydrated without making my oily areas too oily, and if I'm having a particularly oily day I'll just blot and powder my nose. I love that it has a pump, you can control how much product you dispense at a time, it's not messy and you don't waste any. I've seen other reviewers mention their pumps breaking right away or being otherwise defective, but I've had mine for 2 months of daily usage and it still works great, so either I lucked out or they happened to get duds. I've seen a lot of people complaining about the smell, but honestly, I love the smell, it reminds me of lemon meringue pie for some reason. My skin is quite sensitive and I haven't had any problems with irritation or breakouts. When I bought this I also bought another foundation at the same time, the other one (Pixi flawless vitamin veil, see my review) turned out to be a complete disappointment, so I was very glad that this one was a winner!If you have dry, warm toned skin and want light coverage with a dewy finish, give this stuff a try! I recommend this product and would certainly purchase it again.

I have combination skin with dry patches on cheeks & forehead but extremely oily nose. Red skin issues but no pimples, acne or anything else i need to cover.OK I love love love this foundation for its application, colour & wearability BUT I personally can't wear it because it is so scented that it makes my eyes constantly run between drying up or watering and than in turn my nose will run and that effects my problem area, oily nose.I wish so hard that i could wear it but i just can't.Im going to try the HD Matte Cream whatever that E.L.F has... hopefully thats not scented?Ive been on a long adventure of late trying to my my new HG foundation from expensive to drugstore to super cheap E.LF, $12 in Australia, and finding my colour match has been the hardest part of this adventure.I got this in sand. I feel like it goes on a bit dark but settles into a lighter shade.I also find its best applied with fingers because my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush blends too much away.Its very glowy so you will need a powder just to calm that down.I feel like this foundation is more like a really great covering BB cream because of the way it blends into skin so well instead of sitting on top. Im sure with a Beauty Blender you could build coverage easily but thats not my style so I can't really comment on that.It doesn't cake, doesn't sit harshly on dry patches.... its just like so....(crying through my frustration)...great..Pump is a joke though since it works once and than breaks which i keep reading so i mustn't have just had a dud.Buy this if you don't have sensitive eyes!

Not to sound elitist, but I haven't worn foundation from the drugstore for a long time. There was either a smell I couldn't stand or the colors just didn't match my hard to match south asian skin tone. The colors would either be too brown or too pink. I found MAC products blended with my skintone, so I stuck with that brand for years. On a whim, I decided to try ELF. I'm so glad I did. The foundation is inexpensive. You pay less than $7 for a frosted bottle with a pump dispenser. You can tell when the foundation is running low. That's something I appreciate. I don't want to be caught off guard without foundation when I need it. The color matches quite well. I would say it gives medium coverage with an airbrushed appearance. It honestly looks better than most drugstore brands I've tried. It's buildable. You can add more products to get additional coverage. I'd say this gives medium coverage without leaving a cakey finish. You can still see your skin underneath. I don't like it when foundation removes your skin's appearance. It has an SPF, but I don't rely on sun protection from my foundation. I put a separate sunblock before I put on foundation. I would definitely buy this again when I run out of it. For the record, I bought the ELF in the almond shade. Pros - no animal testing, great price, medium coverage, airbrushed appearance, pretty frosted bottle with pump dispenser, easily found at Target and other storesCons - has parabens, may not be good for those with very oily skin

Hands down, this is the best foundation I have tried in a VERY long time. I had high hopes for many high-end foundations, spend a fortune, and the results are mediocre. I bought this foundation randomly when I had placed an online order for a few brushes I needed. Paid $6 for it and it was the best $6 spent. It is a thicker consistency... Almost whipped. I use a beauty blender to even it out and set it with powder. WOW. Longevity: I put makeup on around 5:30am and leave for work at 6:30 AM. I don't take my makeup off until 4:30 Pm when I get home and sometimes longer than that if I have dinner plans. It stays on well. I have a habit of touching up with every foundation I use so I do touch up but it doesn't become splotchy rub off. It doesn't transfer and feels weightless.

I really like this foundation! PACKAGING: Clear, frosted glass container (love it lol) with a black cap and a pump. Yay for pumps!FORMULA: Not too runny, not too thick, it's pretty much right in the middle. Has SPF 15 which is great. Provides medium, buildable coverage, and feels good on the skin. Not lightweight, but like a slightly tacky cream. Not heavy, slightly oily, but a powder fixes that really quick. Easy to apply as well. (fingers, brush, etc.)LONGEVITY: I get a good 6 hours of wear before I notice some creasing around my nose and a few faded spots. SCENT: I don't usually include the scent on foundations, because it's either very subtle or unscented, but this one...omg. It has a strong paint scent that can be off putting and overpowering. The worst part is, is that the scent lingers while it's on your face. It doesn't bother me too badly, but it's not the most pleasant scent.Overall, I like this foundation a lot, especially for the price. (I have the shade Sand)

Let me start by saying that I have very pale skin and it's hard for me to find any foundations that match. I usually get by with "it's close enough" shades.I have this in the lightest shade (Porcelain, I believe) and when I bought it, I had a feeling it would be too dark. But, in the weird lighting inside, it was hard to tell. It is too dark in the winter, but it's close-ish in the summer. The problem is the serious orange tone this stuff has going on. I don't know what it is about super cheap foundations, but every kind I've tried has been very orange, like bad fake tanner.Pros:-It has SPF (only 15, though)-Other than the weird orange tone, it actually looks ok on my skin-It's pretty cheap ($6 or so, I think)-Isn't oily and doesn't dry out my skinCons:-Very limited shade selection (I only saw 6)-Orange tint-The SMELL! It's so strong, like super cheap sunscreen and melting plastic-It feels super heavy on my skin (but doesn't look that way), like I have on three layers of foundation and powder, even though I applied a very light layer of this-I get itchy within a few minutes of applying this stuff (I think it's the sunscreen, but I'm not sure)
