Foundation Review: e.l.f. Acne Fighting Foundation

4  out of 5 stars
I have been testing this out off and on for about 4 months now.  Now that my face isn't such a bipolar mess of dryness and acne I can actually give it a fair review.

Best uses: medium coverage foundation great for everyday use and for special occasions.

This before and after is to show you the coverage.  The pictures were taken minutes apart in the same spot and I did not use any filters on either photo.

What I love: this foundation has a very thin, spreadable consistency, but it delivers great coverage.  This bottle will last a loong time. I got the shade porcelain and it is the closest match to my skin that I have found in quite a while. I also love how it does not irritate my skin at all, itch at all or feel heavy.

What I don't love: this can crease a bit or settle into lines. Also it did really weird things with my skin before I switched from my St. Ives moisturizer it would almost separate or have a really odd uneven finish.

I bought this for $3 on their half off sale and now I am really glad that I did :)

Thanks for reading!

  1. $3 foundation can't be beat! Looks great!

    1. Thanks Becky! I'm glad I waited to review it because it did not play well with my skin and moisturizer before.
