I love trying out new foundations, and in my last Elf haul I bought Elf’s Flawless Finish foundation to try out. I thought I’d review this foundation, as some of you wanted me to review the products I purchased. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical when ordering this foundation, after trying Elf’s tinted moisturizer which I hated! But this foundation was such a suprise.
Elf’s Flawless Finish Foundation is a full coverage foundation. I only needed one pump for my entire face and using a concealer to cover my blemishes was not needed, this foundation covered everything! I have combination skin, and I tend to get oily in my T-zone area. Since this foundation is oil-free it gave my face a matte and flawless finish, just how I prefer my face to be. I didn’t need to touch up my makeup throughout the day with powder etc.
Due to it’s full coverage, the foundation has a very thick texture, which can be a problem for some. This also makes it hard to blend in to the skin. ( By adding lotion to the foundation will make the texture slightly lighter. This, however, will make the foundation have less coverage) I didn’t experience the texture nor the blend ability as a problem. Since this foundation is oil-free and has a thick texture, I wouldn’t recommend this foundation to people with dry skin. The Flawless Finish Foundation is more suitable for combination to oily skin.
This foundation is scented, which I didn’t like. But after applying it to my face, the scent disappeared. Another thing that I didn’t like about this foundation, was the colour. I’m a MAC NC44 girl and this foundation is in the shade Buff, which is to light for me now during summer. So adding a darker powder/bronzer to match my skintone was definitely needed.
The price for the Flawless Finish Foundation only retails for £6 on Elf’s website, which is a really affordable price for this amazing foundation. All in all, I would definitely recommend this foundation, if you want a foundation that will give you a full coverage and a great finish!
Pros: Full coverage, inexpenisve, flawless finish, oil-free, SPF 15
Cons: The texture, scented, hard to blend
Would I repurchase this foundation? YES!
