elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review today for you to enjoy because I went on a wild shopping spree on the e.l.f website recently and saved 50% off everything with free shipping. I purchased a couple elf foundations, concealer palette, some HD setting powders, and lipsticks to try. The price was so low I couldn’t help it! The E.L.F Studio Flawless Finish Foundation I’ll be reviewing can be found on the elf website here: e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation

 Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review – Bottle Design

I’m amazed at the beautiful packaging this E.L.F Studio Flawless Finish Foundation came in! It’s a sheer frosted glass 0.8 oz bottle with a pump. I don’t know about you, but I’m a HUGE fan of a pump for my foundation! First of all, a pump just makes everything more sanitary and I don’t have to worry about liquid foundation running down the sides of the bottle or accidentally pouring too much out. I think we’ve all been there. (oops! Spilled foundation on the carpet or table…) The overall design of this flawless finish foundation bottle is sleek and looks like it would be VERY expensive and reminds me of a fancy department store bottle of foundation. The design has an overall sophisticated appeal and the feel of it in my hands screams quality not “cheapness” The only thing I could ask for would be, I wish the bottle was bigger or just taller! Oh that would be elegant! Oh and it would cost more too lol. Now there’s a pretty penny. More about the cost… icon wink Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review E.L.F. Cosmetics

 Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review – The price $6.00 USD

I recommend using the elf powder here to set the foundation. The elf HD powder is the messiest powder I’ve ever used. You can’t help but make a mess with the powder because of the design of the packaging design.

Lets dish about the price tag in this Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review shall we?! I can’t complain about the price at all! This foundation is only $6.00 on the E.L.F website and sometimes you can get a nice discount if you sign up with your email icon wink Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review E.L.F. Cosmetics Basically I purchased it for only $3 when I took advantage of their sale! Lets think marketing… I don’t know many women that would think a $6 foundation could possibly be any good and nothing but a waste of time and money to try. I’m not one of “those” women. I’ll try something especially if the price is low or I can get it on sale! I’ve had good luck with the E.L.F. brand especially for their colorful eye shadows and lipsticks. <3 I‘m looking at their website and this e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation is only $6 and it’s their most expensive foundation! I would recommend this for anyone on a tight beauty budget, especially young high school or college women. BTW I’ve already reordered because I don’t want to be “without” this foundation in the morning!

 Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review – Quality Coverage

This has a medium build-able coverage that feels refreshing on my skin.. I’m soooo happy with this Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation! It’s my new “go to” foundation. I like this better than my fancy and super expensive MAC foundations. The quality is there baby! The Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation has a noticeable lightweight feel on the face, not at all heavy or cake-like feeling. I feel like the coverage is there but I feel light and airy as if I’m not wearing ANY makeup what so ever! I’d pay money for that right there! When I glide my hand over my cheek, it feels powdery soft and matte. Elf describes it as silky smooth and YES, confirmed! It’s also a semi-matte finish. I’m in LOVE with this finish because it looks luminous yet matte if that makes sense. The application feels like a breeze using a makeup sponge or beauty blender. Wow! My skin looks so flawless and healthy with this foundation! I’m happy with it! Not to mention it’s oil free and has SPF 15! The finish has lasted all day and still looks luminous! Yay! I highly recommend using a dampened makeup sponge or beauty blender for best application.

Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation review

The best advice I can recommend for you in choosing the perfect shade for your skin, is to get a color one shade lighter than it appears in the bottle! OMG so glad I followed this good advice because the colors run darker than they appear! I bought the lightest shade: Porcelain and I usually get a light-medium shade. Hard to believe I’m rocking porcelain with my yellow undertones and olive skin. My skin is fair but I never expected the colors to be so masked through the frosted bottle design! icon smile Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review E.L.F. Cosmetics There’s only 6 shades! Good luck! You might need to buy to for mixing your perfect color.

Swatches:

Porcelain #83111
Sand #83112
Buff #83113
Caramel #83114
Almond #83115

No makeup, clean face, moisturized and ready for elf!

Start with a clean moisturized face and before your apply any makeup, be sure to apply a makeup primer. I’m using the e.l.f. studio mineral infused face primer in brightening lavender. I love the funky color! Purple rain! I also reviewed the elf studio mineral face primer here.

elf mineral primer applied. My skin is glowing with the undertones neutralized.

 

Next, get your makeup sponge ready by lightly dampening it. This will help give a nice soft finish and keep less makeup from absorbing into the sponge just onto it so it can stick onto your face evenly!

Get your sponge applicator ready! Slightly damp.

I like to pump tiny pea sized amounts of this foundation directly onto my face and then blend it with my makeup sponge.

Next feel free to apply extra coverage on any blemish spots and gradually build up the coverage.

Close up shots are the best! Pat gently now and blend. Take your time!

I feel that this foundation looks great on its own without any setting powder, but I enjoy knowing everything stays put by setting this Elf Studio Flawless Finish Foundation with another elf product, the sheer e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder. It feels wonderful without any dryness. Skin looks luminous and fresh all day!

As an authoritative of skin care and beauty products, my goal is to inspire and educate women providing them honest reviews of beauty products and sharing my own personal results. I am inspired by Estée Lauder and her quote, "Beauty is an attitude. There's no secret. Why are all brides beautiful? Because on their wedding day they care about how they look. There are no ugly women - only women who don't care or who don't believe they're attractive."

  1. Could you please do a post on your diet and exercise routine? You have such great ideas for skincare, I figure your diet is pretty awesome too. Thanks!

    • Thanks Whitney,
      I’ll have to blog about that soon! Thanks, I’m always wondering which topics I should blog about next!

  2. Hi Jen! Very nice review. I was searching for reviews on this foundation and came upon this lovely post. Thanks to your review, I think I should give this a try. You have beautiful skin!

    I was just thinking what amazing quality pix you have put up here when I saw you are a photographer in your profile on the right. No wonder its looking pretty awesome. I just subscribed to your Youtube channel. Its awesome to have found you.

    By the way, I don’t know if you have heard of a site called iHerb. Over there this foundation is sold for 3 dollars!. So, like you dont even have to wait for a sale.. Here is the link to the site http://www.iherb.com/?rcode=SCZ695. That includes my referral code which gives you either $5 or $10 off depending on your bill total. Their shipping is ultra fast too and they ship worldwide!..

    • Naznin, Thanks for sharing the website. It reminds me of products I see at the whole food store. I would like to try some of those items because they’re so unique and lots of organic goodies.

      • Hi again!. Yes, it’s a site with organic products.. Even the cosmetic products over there are organic, paraben free, cruelty free and such. It’s a really great site.

        Btw, forgot to mention in my last comment that that elf primer looks pretty awesome. I like what it did to your skin. Such a funky color too!. I have never seen it before. I just checked on iHerb for it.. There is a clear one and a tone adjusting green one there for $6 each. I have dark skin. In most brands, I go for caramel colored foundation. You think going for the clear primer is a good option for me?. Thanks for replying!
