E.L.F Studio Flawless Finish Foundation * a review *

Hey lovelies,

I am here today with a liquid foundation review, the elf's studio Flawless finish foundation.
This is what it looks like:

Product description: ( from elf's website )
Achieve a flawless complexion with the silky smooth e.l.f studio flawless finish foundation. The lightweight and oil-free formula blends in naturally for a beautiful semi-matte finish. This liquid foundation applies easily and lasts all day for visibly brighter and radiant looking skin. Using our flawless finish foundation not only restores uneven skin textures and tones, but msot importantly, the SPF 15 protects your skin against harmful sun damage!

Elf studio flawless finish foundation is available on elf's website ( ). In Canada, some elf products can be found at various Zellers and winners locations.

Shade / price:
Elf's studio flawless finish foundation comes in 6 different shades and retails for $6 (USD) per 0.8oz.

- Shade: Sand,
- Foundation: liquid,
- Size: 0.8oz,
- Pump bottle.

Efl's studio flawless finish foundation is very liquid (runny) and dries quickly which makes it very difficult to apply evenly.
I found that using a stipple brush is the best way to apply this foundation.

The lasting power of this foundation is very remarkable, it stays in place all day without the help of a primer. ( Althought I don't use it without a powder finish so maybe on it's own it won't last as long. ) The foundation felt heavy and left my skin feeling oily which is odd because my skin is more on the dry side.

- Budget friendly,
- Pump bottle,
- Decent coverage,
- long lasting,
- SPF 15.

- Not many shades to choose from,
- left my skin feeling oily,
- Hard to blend,
- felt heavy,
- strong smell,
- Swatches from elf's website are extremely OFF.

Overall review:
Overall , this is an OK foundation. This liquid foundation offers a decent coverage and comes with a pump. I dislike how hard it is to achieve an even look and it dries on blotchy. I picked out the wrong shade from e.l.f's website :( I decided to go with "sand" which is the second lightest shade to choose from. I don't have fair skin but my skin is light so I opted for the second lightest, turns out "sand" is way too dark for my skin tone, I should have choosen "porcelain" instead. :( The swatches on elf's website are always extremely Off, a swatch google search before I purchase is always a must.
I will not re-purchase this foundation, I didn't do anything good for my skin.
I give Elf's Studio flawless finish foundation 2,5 out of 5.

That is all for today,
Thanks for stopping,
Kisses and fireworks,
