I was excited to see this line come out from elf. I like to wear a more natural light coverage face since i dont have acne but i do get redness on my cheeks when i get an eczema flare up. This stuff is so great for the summer because its light and breathable and last all day. The only con is the shade selection, no surprise from elf. But i have snow white skin and i can only make the lightest shade work if i mix in a little of my shapetape, which is whiite. But overall if your within the shade range this is great.
This is one of my favorite sheer coverage foundations. It is the most natural that I have found. What I love most about this foundation is it sits nicely on top of your primer - going for a “natural” look. This isn’t a full coverage foundation by any means, but it doesn’t claim to be. I use this when I am having a minimal makeup day and want a little bit of coverage to cover up some redness. This is a good alternative to a tinted moisturizer.
Love this foundation if i want to just even out my skin, it has light coverage with spf 23, so it is very good for summer foundation and fresh looking make up look,. It held up to 7hrs without getting oily,. But after 8 hrs it began to oil up just a lil bit so it is good for its longevity,.but the only cons i saw was it had a blotchiness after 8hrs, it has little circles like a pores size goin on my side of the nose and inner cheeks,. Maybe because of the spf 23..
Foundation Serum in the shade “Fair/Light” which was a wonderful match for my skin tone and this was definitely more of a serum foundation than anything because the consistency was very thin and had more of a watery consistency. As far as coverage goes, I’d say it was medium coverage which for me is perfect on a day where I’m not wearing much makeup, seeing as my skin has hyperpigmentation. I really enjoyed this foundation and I feel like it will last me a long time because of the amount of coverage you get for very little product, and I applied this using a buffing brush. The result of this is a beautiful, natural-looking finish and I really enjoyed it. 5/5 for me.
While I wasn't expecting a whole lot of coverage beforehand, this is just so sheer! Despite this, it did help my skin look more even. It in no way helped reduce the appearance of pores or fine lines, and actually made my skin feel very dried out. I would highly recommend using this product with a moisturizer if you have combination skin, because my dry areas were very dry. (I plan on trying this out with moisturizer as well as primer, instead of just primer). I do not recommend if you have dry skin though, save your money - even though this is still a cheap product. The foundation serum applied easily enough, though I had to use 4 pumps to cover my face. The formula is very thin, almost water-like. Dry time isn't excessive, it stays wet long enough for you to cover your face, and is buildable. When it dries down it leaves a matte finish. I personally would not buy this again.
I’m definitely no makeup pro, but I bought this because I just wanted light coverage. It is very liquidy, which is fine, except that means it takes a lot to cover my face evenly. It’s very sheer once on (as in more like no coverage), except for the fact that it leaves my skin looking very greasy.. it also has a very sticky texture that I didn’t care for at all.
This is my all time favorite foundation. I purchased it from their 50% off sale and haven’t looked back since. I particularly love how little of a coverage it gives, simply because I am working on my complexion and this compliments it and doesn’t cover it up. It’s very light weight and comfortable to wear.
I feel bad because I love a lot of this brands products but I absolutely hated this one. It has no coverage at all and it’s too thin in consistency. I understand it’s a “serum” foundation, but I did expect a lot more pigmentation. I don’t see any difference after applying to my face. The only thing I liked was the added spf but so many products offer that already that this is not necessary.
So not my favorite elf product. There truly isn’t much coverage as compared to other serums I’ve used. It doesn’t give me that slight color change I’m looking for. I have red tones but nice skin so all I’m looking for is slight coverage I didn’t feel this provided. I love elf. But I guess not for face.!
