ELF came to UK, FINALLY! And I decided to try everything. Much to my surprise the flawless finish foundation really went beyond my expectations.
You get a 25 ml bottle (smaller than most bottles) but you don’t have to worry as the price is small too. I got the shade porcelain (although it says Nude on the packaging!)
It’s a glass frosted bottle which I wouldn’t expect from a budget brand and it’s got a lid and a pump (it really reminds me of NARS packaging).
The texture of foundation is thicker than I normally use but it’s got a lovely cooling effect and it smooths on to the skin beautifully. To be quite frank it does what it says on the box (not the bottle as it doesn’t say, annoyingly) it’s FLAWLESS!
I used a blending sponge and it’s the best way to use this I think.
They don’t have a massive shade range but this was fair and I think it’s actually a really good colour match for me.
The lasting time on this is about 4 hours but lasts well with powder and setting spray.
I actually have to admit I was shocked at how great this was. I didn’t have high expectations. How good can it be for under £10? Well extremely fantastically good I can tell you.
I would go as far as to say that this is comparable to many high end foundations. The closest dupe to the Illamasqua skin finish I can find (if you like that!).
I have normal to dry skin so I don’t know how this would work for someone with oily skin but it would be great to know if anyone has had the same experience as me.
Would you try this foundation? Have you tried this? Do you have a different skin type to me? Did you know that ELF was stocked at Superdrug now?
