Super creamy! I love the consistency of this foundation. But before you get a chance to obsess over the texture you will notice the smell...
Oh e.l.f. why do you do this to yourselves and us
It has the overwhelming strong scent of soap and/or febreeze. Luckily the smell fades quickly but it makes me wonder why they thought this was necessary. Like, what would this smell without their stinky soap...? Something to wonder about I guess. I don't have a hard time dealing with the smell because it goes away but I know that right there will be a deal breaker for some.
I have a hard time capturing foundation once it has been blended so I enlisted the help of a pen in my purse.
The foundation is only about half way blended here
It turns out the best to find out how well a product is working for you is to take pictures for a review. Before I started swatching and taking pictures and really thinking a lot about how this product is working for me I actually really liked it. I was reaching for this foundation almost every single day. I love the creamy consistency and I was able to get decent coverage very quickly (which is a must for me because I am always running late for work!) with just a small amount of product. I think the reason I didn't realize how yellow this foundation is would be because I layered concealer, powder foundation, blush and bronzer on top... but I'm wondering if it's not a very good match for my face. I do have really red skin though... maybe that's why I was so drawn to this foundation every morning because it neutralizes the red in my skin! Ah hah! I'm not completely crazy!
it's a bit on the heavy side,
potential to get cakey although it doesn't always,
temporary stinky soap smell,
small shade selection,
beautiful dewy finish.
I do plan on finishing this bottle because I'm able to work out the cons with other products but I don't think I will be re-purchasing. Especially since summer is coming up and this foundation would be way too heavy in the warm summer temperatures. I've got two words for you: oil slick!
Hope you enjoyed. Please let me know in the comments what your thoughts are on this product. I'd love to hear your opinions!
