So a little while ago I was sent the new Flawless Finish Foundation from E.L.F to try out and here is what I thought of it…
Before – So sorry I had to inflict this picture on you guys!
After – No powder, just popped a bit of mascara on as my lashes looked non existent!
Now I love the bottle of this foundation, its a nice frosted glass with a pump so its easy for dispensing the foundation and not wasting any but the foundation itself I am not sure if I am too keen on.
When I first used it I used my fingers as I like to feel how a foundation feels, to me it felt a tad sticky and I noticed that the more I blended with my fingers the shade got lighter and lighter to a point where it no longer resembled the shade in the bottle but one of about 2 or 3 shades lighter which I found odd. I then tried it with my Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki and it was a different story, the shade seemed to remain the same so I am thinking maybe it had something to do with the warmth of my fingers?.
I would say the foundation itself is a medium coverage foundation and as you can see from my before and after pictures it does quite a good job, but my face still felt very sticky afterwards and damp if that makes any sense. After applying a powder over the top the damp sticky feeling did go but it still felt a bit uncomfortable for a little while, but I held out and the feeling went within about 20-30 minutes.
It lasted between 4-6 hours which isn’t the greatest but also isn’t the worst I have tried, the smell is also really nice. I don’t think I would personally buy this foundation but I think that’s personally down to the way I like my foundation to look and feel on my skin, plus I like to have foundations that I don’t have to powder if I am in a hurry etc.
Have you tried this yet? Do you like it?
Love to hear what you think
