Review for: Light Ivory more...
This is my favorite foundation of all time. I use the lightest shade, but I do still have to use a bit of white foundation mixer (I use the LA Girl one) because the shade is still a bit too dark for my extremely light skin, but I absolutely love it. My skin truly looks airbrushed and I get an insane amount of compliments about how clear my skin looks when I wear this product. I'd say it's medium coverage but can be built up to full coverage or applied very lightly and blended out well if you want to make it light coverage. I have normal/combination skin but it gets quite oily in the summer and quite dry in December/January. I've used this foundation during both of my skin-type moments and found that it wore beautifully with oily and dry skin alike.

Review for: Light Ivory more...
This foundation has medium coverage along my acne & covers some things but not a lot. It never will dry down by itself so use only if using a setting powder over it. It does look good on the skin without flakes or double applications throughout the day. The price is very good for the coverage & shade range I have seen. I use this product everyday almost on clients & myself. There are looks @glam.of.life on Instagram of me using this foundation. I do keep this product in my to-go makeup bag & never leave without it. I did however get the wrong shade so I do have to mix foundations to create my matte finish color. I do agree this foundation if you are using a powder over the dewiness of the product.

Review for: Sand more...
I managed to scoop my shade up at TJ MAxx for half the price so for the $3 this was well worth it! This is a matte finish, full-coverage foundation. Does not take much to get full coverage. I have applied with a beauty blender only and have had great results. No creasing and no oxidizing so get your true shade when ordering. I like to wear it during the summer when my skin is more oily and needs the matte finish. I would not recommend this for dry skin. I would definitely purchase again. I would rank it up there with my other high end foundations.

Review for: Caramel (Previously Almond) more...
Love this brand. They are incredibly affordable and cruelty free. I have honestly had a hard time finding a foundation that I like as much as this...especially at the price point. I also love that there is spf 15 in this, as I have a hard time using spf on my face without it breaking me out. I do not have that problem with this product. This formula goes on more of a medium coverage, but is fairly buildable. It holds up pretty well throughout a normal day. It does tend to crease a bit under the eyes after a couple hours though. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a decent all around inexpensive foundation. I really think it should work well with all skin types.

Review for: Natural (Previously Porcelain) more...
I'm in love with this foundation, truly. It's my favorite drugstore foundation, and I highly recommend it. As someone with sensitive, combination (oily with dry patches) skin, I can say this foundation is acne prone, sensitive, combination skin friendly. When you first apply it, it goes on medium coverage, but it is buildable and covers pimples very well. The finish is so beautiful (it's not matte, it's more of a dewy finish, but it also doesn't look greasy). With a mattifying powder it looks amazing too. The price is so cheap for such an amazing product, I can't rave about this enough. THE ONLY problem I have with this product is that it oxidizes a good bit.

Review for: Porcelain more...
I have acne, oily skin, scars and this actually covers it all!

So I’ve been looking for a cheap foundation that could cover my skin issues and not cause any irritation or cling to dry patches etc. this goes on beautifully and looks very smooth and skin like, not cakey at all!
I do notice I get oily and a heavy feeling on my skin 4-5 hours in of wearing it but it still looks pretty and doesn’t separate. I only have to use about a pump of this foundation for my whole face.

The packaging is very simple and pretty for something only $6, it has a weight to it and a smooth lid, there is a pump!

I’m pretty happy with this elf product.

I am OBSESSED with this foundation. For the price point, the coverage is amazing. There is a bit of a perfumey smell when you first apply it, but it does fade. It’s thick and dries down into the skin and I find this to be non drying on my skin. This doesn’t emphasize my dry areas and covers and blemishes well. I can’t get over the fact that this is only $6. The pump on the top is also very easy to use. LOVE. e.l.f. Cosmetics Flawless Finish Foundation

For the price, this is honestly a pretty darn good foundation. It goes on smoothly, doesn't break me out, and offers pretty good (I'd say medium-high) coverage. It has also lasted me a surprisingly long time. My only qualms with it are that it never seems to fully set, and will smudge off on anything with the slightest touch. If you gently itch your face, you'll have product on your fingers and if you have to blow your nose, all the foundation there will come off on the tissue. It also gets pretty slick and shiny with moderate activity and doesn't stay matte at all.

Review for: Caramel (Previously Almond) more...
This is a great foundation for anyone strapped for cash or looking to try out new makeup techniques! I recommend this a lot to people who don’t have a lot of experience with color correcting their face before applying other makeup and so it’s a great product for the price to start out on! I still use this exact foundation weekly to provide a nice, semi-matte base for my concealer. I really like how I can depend on this product and the look it provides because it is also affordable enough to keep buying!

Review for: Sand, Natural (Previously Porcelain) more...
My skin type is oily for the most part and combo around my nose region. I love this foundation for not accentuating my oiliness! I'm always skeptical when buying drugstore foundations because they're notorious for breaking my skin out and for being overly oily throughout a days wear. This foundation completes with some of my top high end foundations and has never oxidized on me. It sits at a $8 price tag so I would definitely recommend buying it to at least give it a shot.

What is your favorite liquid foundation? Looking for matte, mid-range coverage, and not super pricey. Right now my favorite is e.l.f. Cosmetics Flawless Finish Foundation but I'm looking for things I don't need to order, and aren't oily.
