I must admit i was quite shocked with this packaging.
In this your are getting 0.8oz which is a wee bit smaller than your normal foundation which is normally about 1oz.........
Your also getting a pump dispenser which is great as it gives you control of how much product you want which means not wastage........its also more cleaner and more hygienic that way
Whats best about these is they look more expensive than the price you have paid for them as you are getting a slightly frosted glass container for your foundation which mean no mess........The ld is also very secure because when you place it back on the bottle it *Clicks* so you know this is not going to fall off in your make up bag.......
There is only 6 shades to choose from which is quite disappointing in some sense as there is alot of people out there with alot of different skin tones and types........
e.l.f should make more choices of shades i do find these shades are more on the neutral side.....there is no shades on the cold or warm side....thankfully these shades are ok for me but for anyone who is on the warm/cool side will find it hard to work with these.......
as i said i got my shade wrong the first time with "Buff" and had to buy a shade lighter which is "Sand"..I was sure this would do me but when i applied it was a shade too light so i mixed the two to get my perfect shade but that ment i spend £13 to get my proper shade ??????? see what i mean e.l.f really needs to make more shades.........
This foundation is medium to full coverage.....also when you apply it it feels very moisturising so if you suffer with dry skin you will find the benefits of this for sure....I dont care too much about the scent tough it kind of reminds me a little of sun lotion but it wears off after a while.....i have normal/dry skin and i personally found that this foundation was a little oily and the fact it says its oil free kind of shocked me....When i looked at the ingredients the first ingredient says Mineral oil??? Seeminly Mineral oil is good for you YES IF YOU TAKEN IT IN A MEDICINE FORM but not on your skin if you are prone to breaking out Mineral oil will make you break out!!!!!! Click here for information that i have found about Mineral Oil so you can make your own mind up . Below im going to post a before and after picture of me wearing the foundation. Dont Laugh at my before picture lol keep in mind im a full time mum of 5 young kiddies hahahahaha
|As you can see it does give the flawless look but at what price ?????|
I like the coverage it gives and for anyone who suffers alot from blemishes acne etc will benefit from this coverage but i have to say to me this is not my favourite foundation. I just found it sticky and dont put powder over it unless you blot your face first.....otherwise you will end up with patches and and dry powder patches all over your face
My overall opinion
To be honest i wont be purchasing this foundation again....I will use up the ones i have but i just doesnt tick the boxes for me....Its not all that bad...It can be suitable for alot of people but just not for me.......For the price its no harm trying it out yourself and at the moment eyeslipsface.co.uk is having a 50% off sale until monday 29th the Code is "CARNIVAL" so take advantage to try this foundation out for 1/2 price
I am in no way recommending this foundation to anyone and i am not telling you not to buy it but if you are prone to breakouts or oily skin i would give this a miss to be honest. Me???? I will be sticking to my current favourite foundation click here to read about it I really hope this review was helpful to you and let me know what you think .
Until next time girls
