I really like this foundation a lot. It has good coverage and you can build it up to be full coverage if that's what you're looking for. The only complaint I have is the packaging because The first one I had fell on my kitchen floor and broke because the packaging is glass.

elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review
elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Achieve a flawless complexion with the silky smooth e.l.f. Foundation. The lightweight and oil-free formula blends in naturally for a beautiful semi-matte finish. Applies easily and lasts all day for radiant looking skin. Provides SPF-15 to protect your skin against sun damage.
Tips: I apply this foundation using a beauty blender or a foundation brush, I do find that I have to use a powder to set it.
I was given this foundation in Porcelain by my extremely pale sister, it was too dark for her.
I am actually in love with this foundation.
The best way to apply it is with a damp flat top or foundation brush or even one better for a more flawless finish is with a damp blender sponge.
I found it gives such an amazing coverage for such a cheap cheap product. I also love that it's very illuminating and dewy.
It wears well. It hasn't settled into my pores but can crack if you have dry skin. So bare that in mind.\
I will definitely repurchase. As I have maybe 2 applications left out of my bottle.
I really love the pump bottle, who has time not to use a pump?? Smells pleasant is not sticky or heavy feeling.
I also found it is buildable and my concealer for my under eyes does not crack on top :)
I'm sold :) P.s I love that this is VEGAN! No animal Cruelty :D
Tips: Try a damp brush or sponge ;) Not a dry brush.
Yes I know e.l.f is a cheap brand, and they honestly do have alot of great products, but this just isnt one of them. Coverage is below average and the foundation is very oily and only lasts an hour or so on my face. It has the scent of an ordinary foundation, which seems to be the only positive anout it. Also application with this one is extremely tricky because the foundation is extremely thin (not quite watery) means that sponges just absorb it and when you try to apply it using a brush it just ends up looking odd when you apply it.
I recently purchased this product as I heard a lot of good things about and it's super affordable too, I really liked it, it has average coverage and is really easy to apply only thing I found was it made my dry spots stand out at the end of the day, it didn't for the start of the day though ?? But apart from that I really like this product and I really like the packaging simple but pretty
I am still on the search for my 'holy grail' foundation, but at the moment I am more than content with this one.
The packaging doesn't reflect the price at all, in fact it mimics high end packaging. It comes in a frosted bottle, with a pump and a sleek black lid.
The consistency is on the thicker side - but I like that in a foundation, so that got the thumbs up from me. It is incredibly easy to blend, and goes on like an absolute dream with a flat-top brush.
I would say the coverage is light - medium. I feel it does a decent job at covering my redness, which makes it a great day wear foundation.
I usually use a powder and setting spray over top, so I probably can't truthfully comment on how long lasting it is - With a powder though I would say it should definitely last an entire work day.
The finish is definitely on the dewey side - which is what I prefer. It leaves a healthy glow.
I would say this is a fantastic day time foundation - perfect for when you are going for the lighter side of coverage.
Before I started to experiment with purchasing higher end foundations, this was my holy grail. The price and the way this product performed were what made me buy this over and over. After using more expensive foundations my opinion has changed on this but it is still a decent foundation.
The price is insane. You really can't beat it and even though this isn't my favourite foundation, if I needed something budget friendly I would buy this. The packaging mimics a lot of higher end foundation - this comes in a heavy frosted glass bottle and it has a pump.
The consistency for this is quite thick but it isn't like cement or anything. It just isn't liquidy. The coverage is medium and I found that - on my skin at least, it didn't really like to be built up. My skin is dry so this may have something to do with it.
Although the description claims this is a semi matte finish, on my skin this came off as slightly dewy. This could be down to the primers I used, but this is definitely dewy on my skin. In saying that - if you don't like a dewy look then setting powder would eliminate that.
This is easy to blend either with a brush or beauty blender. If my skin wasn't hydrated I found this did cling to dry patches, so if you have dry skin make sure it is moisturised. The wear time on this was ok, I would manage about 6 hours before it started to break down a little bit. Even though it started to break down on my skin this wasn't super obvious and even by the end of a 12hour day it wasn't glaringly obvious, although it had faded a bit.
As I mentioned above, I would purchase this if I needed an inexpensive foundation. It is excellent quality for the price. Whilst this isn't my favourite foundation, I still have a bottle of this in case I run out of my Nars Sheer Glow and need something. If you are on a budget I definitely recommend giving it a go, and this would be perfect for teenagers or those who are new to makeup.
