E.L.F Flawless Finish Foundation || REVIEW


When i qualified as a make-up artist, which was around June last year, i was excited to start on my kit and this was when E.L.F came out with this Flawless foundation range and i just couldn't resist. I picked the two lightest shade because the swatches of the colours online made them look quite natural and more universal. Well, when it came, i added them to my collection and i know as bad as it sounds, i forgot about them and they just sat in my drawer hidden away.

Recently, i returned home from university back to my hometime for a night out with my friends and silly me, i forgot to bring my beloved Lancome Teint idole ultra foundation back home, and in a panic i started digging in my drawers hoping to find something that could save me from going out barefaced and this was when i rediscovered the ELF foundation.

I quite like the look of the frosted bottle, although you have to be careful when choosing the shade because the glass distorts the actual colour but allows you to observe how much product remains in the bottle. I was so lucky in the sense that the shade 'porcelain' is a perfect match for me and it had a pleasant clean fresh scent to it. The foundation itself was quite thick but easily blended out and it also delivered a medium to full coverage. The finish was very dewy actually but i used a loose powder on top due to the nature of my oily skin. 

I would say that the foundation lasted fairly well on my skin which i was quite surprised about because it initially seemed so dewy looking. One thing which you definitely have to be aware of is it's high SPF properties which gave quite abit of flashback in photos you take during the night. I am aware that my Lancome foundation has high SPF too, but it always photographs very nicely, but this ELF foundation just makes me look a tad too light in colour compared with usual.

For the price of this foundation, i would recommend this for the daytime wear. Longevity is good and there is a nice range of colours to choose from. Another downside to this is that it is only available online which makes it difficult to pick a perfect shade for you therefore i recommend you looking at swatches on the internet.
Have you tried E.L.F products?

  1. I have this foundation too, in the same shade I think, if porcelain is the lightest one? I like the coverage, but I'd say it's a little too dark for me. I'm extremely pale and struggle to find a foundation to match.
    I agree, it smells nice and I like the packaging!

  5. Thanks for the review. I like E.L.F's price too. Because of its sheerness, I would agree with day time use. Regardless, it's cheap enough to try, right?
