I really wanted to like this because I would love to be able to get away with a light dusting of Mineral Foundation rather than having to apply liquid foundation every morning. Unfortunately, this product just didn't give me the coverage required. I have quite clear skin but a bit of ruddiness around my nose and I had to keep going over the same area quite a few times in order to get the coverage I wanted. The finish is very natural, and almost semi-matte on my skin, but the coverage just isn't enough to sway me into using it instead of my liquid foundation. As usual, with ELF this is a great value product at only £5, so even if you don't like it, at least you haven't wasted a huge amount of money. My biggest bugbear with most mineral foundations is the packaging. I hate the sifters that come with them and wish they had a twist cover so you could prevent the product from escaping. All in all, a good product, just not right for my skin type.

I LOVE this product. I have extremely sensitive skin and my skin is intolerant to most products. I also have extremely pale but yellow toned skin. On top of this I have oily skin but has a tendency to get patchy and scaly in the sensitive areas (oily and dry). If you have this sort of skin then this product is fabulous and affordable. It doesn't irritate my skin, the colour porcelain is the FIRST affordable foundation that actually matches my colour (white pale but slightly cream) and it really suits my irritated skin type. Most liquid foundation pick up my scaly patches but run off my oily skin and melt into my fine lines. This does neither and looks 100% natural on me. Because my skin is oily it lasts a long time for me but if I set it with a mist spray it will last all day. The coverage is good enough to tone down my permenant redness but not so heavy that it looks fake so that my natural skin glow comes through. I have zero complaints with this product and that is a complete first for me and my skin which hates 90% of skincare.

I got this in Warm and it's a decent match for my NC20/25 skintone, albeit a hair too dark. It's a lightweight mineral foundation that applies nicely, but it doesn't last long. I've found that after about 4 or 5 hours it looks like I have no foundation on at all. Doesn't control oil that well either.
Would only recommend to someone in a pinch or one who isn't looking for alot of coverage.

I have been using this as my daily foundation for months. I use the Warm shade which is a good match for my Asian skintone. I use a Body Shop kabuki brush to apply it and it's really quick for everyday wear. Coverage is fairly light, I use a cream concealer for blemishes on top. The packaging is fairly tiny which is good for portability but I use a separate dish to swirl the brush. I find the small pot lasts for ages so it's amazing value.

It felt light but didn't provide any coverage at all.

I wish E.L.F would stop sending me all these coupons. It's bad enough that I love so many of their products and they are inexpensive, but to add a coupon on top of it all?! This is another product I picked out and tested out. FYI- this is my initial review...
The color I tried is Warm.
(With Bare Minerals, I am Medium and Everyday Mineral Jojoba is Sesame.)
The mineral foundation is a little clumpy, but once on a brush it doesn't make a difference. Other mineral foundations tend to be more finely milled. It goes on very smoothly and buffs nicely. The foundation is not cakey looking and looks very natural on the skin. I made sure to get a good look at it in natural light and so far I like it. I will keep using to see if anything changes.
UPDATE: While the foundation goes on very nicely, it oxidizes and turns orangey. Ewww. I am not using this stuff ever again.

This is my everyday foundation and has been for several months now. I have very fair combination skin. The new color porcelain is an excellent match! I can use this with a foundation brush to cover my splotchy areas and I wouldn't need anything elsewhere except for the fact that it is my sunscreen, too. It doesn't settle into my lines/wrinkles. I use E.L.F. Studio High Definition Powder after and it stays fairly well throughout the day. I get a little oily in my t-zone but use a blotting sheet. Would need to touch up for evening, but am very happy with the wear, price and color of this foundation. I've even converted one co-worker and my daughter!
I would give it 5 Lippies if it had a larger size choice.

I bought this at Target last year and loved it. My only complaint is that it doesn't last long. But hey, it was cheap and even included a brush to apply it. I haven't been able to find it in store since then, which really bums me out, but oh well. It doesn't last long when applied, which is something I need it to do. I often don't have the time to reapply with a 2 month old. I wouldn't repurchase for this reason.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I think the product is really good, I got it on offer in target (im on my holidays) and I have been using my bare minerals brush to apply it. I feel like it needs a fair ammount of swirling and two layers but I think it gives nice coverage, I dont find many foundations or powders last very long on my skin anyway (and I am a make up snob - happy to buy expensive products!) so its not a bad buy I think I paid $5 so I would buy this again

This was an okay loose powder. I really expected this to be close to bare essentials since my mom swears by it. I really didn't like it though. Bad packaging, product fell out every where and the powder sometimes was hard to get loose from the inside so I had to shake it to get the powder out. The coverage is terrible, I had to wear a lot of this to just cover. Did not last at all. Skin looked oily in the matter of 3 hours. I gave this to my mom and I would not repurchase. But for girls on a budget, this is a pretty nice loose powder.

Even tough it looks good on my skin, I alwas get an headache when wearing this product, so i definitely would not recommend this to anyone.

I recently decided to switch to powder foundation after getting a really intense facial and I felt that the foundations I had been using were to heavy and would damage my skin. I bought the e.l.f. foundation on a whim despite the mediocre reviews on here. I figured 3 bucks wasn't a huge sacrifice!Seeing as how this is my first powder I can't really give a comparative review but I really love this foundation and the routine I have discovered with e.l.f. products. Luckily I ordered the right shade (golden honey). I use the mineral primer, then the foundation and then the hd powder and Iove the way my face looks after, It looks like I'm not wearing foundation at all, gives better coverage then I thought it would, and matches my skin tone! The packaging is a but sucky however. It comes in a small container and its kind of hard to pick up a decent amount of product on your brush. It's a bit messy but nothing to stress about. All in all, I'm really happy with the quality of the product and my appearance. It feels really lightweight, and I have been using it for about a week and have not noticed anymore breaking out than usually (acne-prone skin) Maybe one day i will upgrade to a "better" foundation but for now I am completely satisfied!

I have used several brands of mineral makeup but I finally settled on L'Oreal Bare Minerals. I used it for a few years because I thought it was the best. I was wrong! I wanted to make an E.L.F. purchase and on a whim, I added this foundation to the order. I avoided purchasing this foundation for over a year because I did not think that such an inexpensive product could give me the coverage that I need. I was wrong. This foundation works pretty much the same as L'Oreal except for one thing, it matches my skin tone better. Porcelain is my PERFECT match. I am so happy I tried this foundation. It works great and will save me $$.

I love this foundation! I've got a very fair skin tone and the porcelain shade matches perfectly. it leaves skin looking matte and fresh with medium coverage. My skin has never felt dry or irritated after use. The packaging is horrible simply because it's impossible to get it through the top plastic part. it's also pretty small but hey it's 5$, take something flat and pry that top off! I use daily and one jar lasts 2 - 3 weeks! overall great product for the price :)

Aside from me being allergic to the ingredient bismuth oxychloride within it, I really liked this as a foundation. I would have stayed with it if it wasn't for my sensitive skin. It's cheap and has decent enough coverage. I won't be buying again due to skin allergies though.

I LOVE this product! It makes my skin look even and bright. It looks warm and flawless with this on. I'm very pale with dark hair and I purchased this in fair and it work for me.

This isn't as good as Bare Minerals, but it is far better than the drug store brands (Loreal, etc) I've tried. I bought "Warm" and I don't think the color match is that great so that could be why I'm on the fence about this. I've been wearing it over my liquid foundation and it looks nice. It's something I'll keep in my collection, bu my Bare Minerals will be my go to Mineral Foundation. If you are on a budget, I would say go for it, ,maybe buy 2 shades so you can mix them together, its hard to choose a shade when buying on-line. The reviews on the ELF website all said the same thing as well. I would buy this again, its a bargain.

I am pleasantly surprised by this product, at first I was usinng it as a powder to go over my foundation. Then I realized it was good enough to use alone. I get great coverage from it, but it doesnt do so well for absorbing oil. You get a good amount for the price and the deepest shade suits me just fine. And since its mineral I dont feel so bad if I accidentally fall asleep in it.

It can get very dry unless I work it 100% into the skin on a good moistured face, but other than that? I LOVE IT. I have the "Light" one and because I got so annoyed with the small package I decided to put it into my BareMinerals-one and mix it with the remaining mineral foundation there. Lo and behold, it worked magic with my skin from the first time I used it on the moistured face. It's also great as a "fixating" powder over a lightweight liquid foundation to give a light but covering base. I am not too sure the ingredients in this mineral foundation are all "clean", meaning that they have no bad chemicals etc at all in it, but I have never broken out in this and it stays a long time on my skin with a good coverage remaining until the very end.
The only thing not very recommended would be to try to wear powder on top of it - it just gets too dry and not very natural. Other than that, blush and bronzer has a perfect base on this matte foundation. VERY recommended, considering the price.

I tried the Personal Blend, a kind of quad of mineral powder foundation, in light and medium. The light I bought first, and as it a bit too light, I got the med. The pking just OK; you have a punch-out cap you can turn to select a color, but I like to blend them. Applies very well with the e.l.f. kabuki brush. I thought of powder as something for old ladies but I like the look of this on me. I apply moisturiser first (maybe with a little tint), and then brush this on. Gives a smooth, even finish and covers more than I thought it would. Has a sunscreen too.I think anyone would be able to get a good color match with this, any time of year. Will buy again.
