Try out (for free, they also pay shipping and handling from the Netherlands, so it's totally no-risk) their foundations in a cute little packet that gives you about 2 days' worth. They send you several foundations so you can try out darker or lighter shades. They go from alabaster white to deep brown, so you should be able to find something that suits you color-wise! Hint: I have a light olive complexion which matches EF 3 (Fair-medium) in the winter, but I match better to EF 3.5 or EF 4 in the summer, because I tan very easily. They have samples of every colour, but last time I checked they did not have samples of the 3.5. NB ELLIS FAAS FOUNDATION IS NOT FOR OILY OR VERY OILY SKIN. You will only be unhappy if you buy it. But if you have combination, normal or dry skin, you may find that it suits you very well. NB #2 ELLIS FAAS FOUNDATION HAS LIGHT TO MEDIUM COVERAGE. If you have serious discolorations, red, brown or purple, it will not cover them. The foundation is ideal for veiling (not hiding) areas of slight redness, mild pigmentation, and freckling to give you a very natural, slightly dewy look. Great for mature ladies, but looks fantastic on people of all ages. NB #3 The current formulation has no SPF, so it will not give you flashback in picture (good) but will not protect you against the sun (bad). So I use it at night, or if I am indoors all day, and I love it! See my positive reviews (and those of many other happy users). If I am in the sun, I use Missha SPF 42 which gives slightly more coverage (medium light to medium full, depending on how you apply it) but has a similar texture.

I had no intention of purchasing this product but it caught my eye after seeing it on sale on beauty bay's clearance section and the sale was pretty good so I thought what the heck. It actually does a pretty good job and I'm impressed! I don't take much issue with getting the product out as others have, as I feel that it's still pretty quick to dispense it even if it's struggling to, I have run into issues where dried up product blocks up product but this issue is easily solved by using a bit of water. The brush tip surprised me in it's quality, it's soft and can do well in blending, it's quality is much better than to something like Clinique's airbrush concealer. It does a pretty neat job in concealing blemishes and the under-eye with its medium coverage. The product is amazing in battling creasing, even with powder it does not crease at all. It looks beautiful and natural but lasting power is where I feel this product doesn't do a great job in. Maybe a prerequisite is to powder but I feel on it's own it should still do its job in lasting. I really took issue with this problem when I would use it every day while on vacation in Japan, after the middle of the day most of the product would have virtually disappeared on blemishes. I don't know if this is a defect but the concealer tends to leak terribly around the black part when I haven't used all the product that is dispensed and I always find myself having to clean it up which is a bit annoying. There is also a scent that is noticeable especially when I apply it around my nose and it's definitely not pleasant, like a sour wood scent.

I actually bought this foundation on a whim after seeing it have a pretty good sale on beautybay, and I've actually been loving this foundation! The application of this foundation is perfect, it applies like a dream and is soo creamy but I do feel that it's better applied with a brush due to its consistency, which is like a cream. It is a very dewy foundation and it looks really natural, and I have no issues with its longevity as it's lasted pretty good and looked the same after a whole day. I think my colour (S103.5L) is darker than my skin tone as I feel when I put on more layers my face finish starts to look weird, like tan but not in a good way?
