Review: e.l.f Acne Fighting Foundation- Day 10

IMG_5764

Lately I have been all about using products to help fight my acne. I have revisited my dermatologist and I’m on three different types medication to help eliminate my acne. I try and be as gentle with my skin as possible and my acne has been very persistant. I have very sensitive/ oily skin and I get eczema spots all around my eye lids, cheeks and neck. With that being out in the open take this review with a grain of salt. This is my own experience with the product and my own thoughts.

(I have been having a pretty good time with my skin, a few less breakouts, but more dry spots from the acne medication I’ve been using aka a normal thing when you have eczema)

Let’s start off with what the website states about this foundation.

This lightweight acne fighting foundation works to disguise redness, blemishes and uneven skintone. The flawless coverage foundation formula is infused with acne fighting key ingredients Salicylic Acid (0.5%), Witch Hazel, Camphor, Tea Tree and soothing Aloe, to help prevent and treat acne blemishes.

This retails for $6 on the eyeslipsface website.
SIZE 1.0 fl oz. (30mL)
Total Shades- 6
My current Shade: Buff

Let’s start off by talking about the packaging. The bottle is very sleek with a black screw off lid. You dispense the product by squeezing it out. I absolutely love the bottle it makes it for the most sanitary dispense possible. I can see myself putting the bottle upside down trying to get the last little bit of product out.

The foundation it’s self has great coverage! It is easily comparable to my revlon Color stay in the pigmentation. I applied it with my beautyblender and it performed just as good as my colorstay which is a first for me. I normally have bad luck with any other foundations that aren’t my Revlon Colorstay.

Here are a couple of things I did not particularly enjoy about this foundation. First off the color stay of this product seems to disappear the longer you wear it. If you tend to touch your face (whoops!) or blow your nose the product will disappear on you. I would say I have about 65% of my foundation at the end of the night. Keep in mind I did set it with powder at the beginning of the day. The second thing is that it tends to cling onto dry patches. Through out the day I found that this foundation excentuated more and more of my dry areas. Nothing too bad from a far but up close you could tell I was wearing foundation.

If you have oily skin this foundation will allow shine to pass through within a few hours, but that happens with most foundations I have tried even with the Revlon Colorstay foundation in oily to combo skin. If you have red active blemishes you will still need a concelar.

This is my skin completely bare no touch ups!

This is my skin after one layer of the foundation, no concealer.

& This was my finished look without a setting powder.

Overall I would say that for $6 it’s not a complete waste of money. Maybe once my skin becomes a bit healthier, I will be able to get a different result while using this foundation. I would give this foundation a 6.5/10. Keep in mind that my revlon color stay only gets a 8/10 so it’s a pretty good contender in my book.

Have a great Thursday!
See you all Tomorrow.

      I would have to say that it hasn’t clogged my pores up yet. I have been usuing it for a month and no problems so far. What I do is use my clarisonic to really clean my face so that may be why I haven’t had that issue.
