I have the shade Porcelain. I feel that my selection is just a little bit too light for my skin, but the creaminess of the foundation is so nice. It goes on very heavy and thick, but blends very very well. I really like using a beauty blender with the base to get a seamless finish. It dries down matte, but does not dry out the skin and stays for all day wear. I like the larger pan for ease of application and it covers fully. Very little settling into fine lines and easy to use with other products.

I absolutely love this foundation! It goes on heavy and thick, but doesn’t continually say that way. I have very oily and acne prone skin and this doesn’t break me out - but it lasts all day long! It does dry more of a matte, but if you are looking for a foundation that has an extremely matte finish, I would suggest putting setting powder over it.

One of the down sides are, I have some redness that surrounds my nose, and sometimes, in that area, the redness shows through. Which isn’t a huge deal to reapply considering it has a mirror built into it.

Another down side is the sponge that comes with it, I don’t think it picks up product as well as it should and it falls apart easily.

Other than that, I absolutely LOVE this product! Would suggest it to everyone, especially if you’re on a budget like I am!

This foundation is probably the best 6$ I’ve ever spent. It’s easy to apply when I’m rushing on the go. It’s very lightweight, less is definitely more. It does come with a pad to apply but I would definitely use a regular foundation brush for better coverage. I get compliments on the way my skin looks with it on and when I tell people it’s elf they are so shocked!

I didn’t like this as much as their full coverage liquid foundation but for the money it was pretty decent. It wasn’t as full coverage as their liquid and that was what I was looking for.

This matte foundation is good, but there is a fine line between too little and too much. It definitely needs to be paired with a primer, and I usually only use this in the winter as any sweat makes it a little tar-y

HD MATTIFYING CREAM FOUNDATION of ELF brand excellent product for mixed skins to fat since it is free of fat its duration is not high but if we put a good prime and sealed with powder it can be useful for the day to day its coverage is average se Can work and diffuse very easy personally apply it with a brush so that its coverage is a little higher it leaves your skin quite natural and the best its affordable price

I purchase this cream foundation because all my powder products fall in my creases now nand make them look worse. My skin color is getting sun blotches and my old acne holes, big pours and new menopause acne sucks. This product is so fast an easy to apply w/sponge it comes with. It does not make my creases worse, fills my big pour and Old acne area great. It matches my color great and gives me an almost purfect solid natural palette to add color to. I LOVE IT. Can't find in stores though, only on line Who would have thought something so reasonable would work so well. Washes off easily.

This Elf's Mattifying Cream Foundation is awesome! Firstly , because is oil free and doesn't let your face look greasy (which I honestly hate plus it ruined my pictures lol) , it has a good coverage and is very soft and concentrated product, a small amount will be enough!

The quality of elf products never cease to amaze me! Their formulas definitely rival that of the higher end expensive makeup! You are getting quality without paying the brand name price. This product was perfect For days I don't want to do a full face or for the gym I always try to just use a powered to cover up minor imperfections and this product did just that! Without feeling too heavy or pore clogging.

Does this really make your look matte? Does it leave behind color? Do I have to blend this? Is it worth it?

I have combination oily/dry skin (depends on facial area) and I've been looking for new oily skin friendly foundations. I'm wondering what the lasting power is like in this foundation for oily girls! I've seen that it's a dupe for a couple different high end brands so I'm really looking to find out how this foundation combats oil and how long it lasts especially for long wear?
