I love how affordable E.L.F products are and when I saw that their site was having a 50% off sale, I knew that I had to pick up some products. One of the products that I picked up was their Moisturizing Foundation Stick which normally retails for $6 but I got it for $3! Although, I am not a huge fan of foundations, since I find them too thick and usually I feel like they make my skin look super dry even though I do put on moisturizer underneath. The color that I picked up this product in was Honey.
This is what the product looks like. I actually really like the packaging since I find that it is so easy to carry around and it’s pretty light.
It is a twist up packing, and the color seems alright for my skin. (I find that selecting the perfect foundation color is pretty hard, especially when I’m buying a foundation online.)
Here is what the foundation looks like on my hand. I find that it has some pink undertones in it.
Here is a picture of a part of my cheek, I only put moisturizer on underneath (since my skin is super dry since it is winter). I want to cover up the redness near my nose and the spider-y veins that are on my cheeks.
Here is what my cheek looks like with the product on, I find that it does cover the redness pretty well, but I do not find that it is especially moisturizing.
Here is a side by side comparision. I do like how it makes my skin looks, since it does cover up most of my skin’s imperfections. I always find that it feels pretty lightweight. I would say that the foundation is light-medium coverage, which I like since it still makes my skin look pretty natural, but covers up my main imperfections.
- Extremely lightweight
- Blends out pretty smoothly (I blended with my fingers)
- Extremely affordable (Only ($6)
- A pretty good color range (8 different colors)
- Covers up pretty well
- Is not super moisturizing (I still see dry spots)
- A weird plastic/clay smell
Overall, I am very happy with this foundation. I would definitely repurchase this in the future. It is so affordable and I love how it makes my skin look!.
