|ELF Mineral Foundation in Fair and ELF's Kabuki Brush|
I've never really been big into mineral make up, I found that with my oily, less than perfect acne prone skin it hasn't ever really worked. For the most part, it has made my skin irritable and break out so bad it's crazy, I had just decided that maybe mineral make up wasn't for me, when I decided to take a chance on ELF's mineral foundation, and I have to say i'm pretty happy that I did, because it changed my mind about mineral make up.
ELF Website Product Description - Our weightless mineral foundation will help get you on your way to healthier illuminating skin. All our powders blend naturally into the skin, and are so light that they work with your skin color to create a perfect color match. All of our foundations contain sun protection factor (spf) 15 and are 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.
So I got this from the ELF UK website a while back, and I have been loving it so much! It is €4, and I think it's pretty great!

Just like your normal mineral foundation, this is a loose powder, that comes in a little container with a screw off lid, there was also one of those plastic sifters that are really annoying, I took the sifter out, as it was pushing down on the powder too much and making it all stick together and nothing was coming out. If you're accident prone like me, be careful if you're taking the sifter out, as I knocked it over and half of the powder fell out!
I wore this on it's own, with just a bit of primer underneath, and it lasted really well, only had to touch it up once or twice where my skin was starting to get oily. As for coverage on it's own - it isn't great. It dosen't cover up much, so if your skin is very bad, I wouldn't wear this alone.
What I usually do is wear this over my foundation, as an alternative for a pressed powder, and it works a treat! It really just finishes off my foundation, and makes me look a little more natural looking. It gives a bit of extra coverage, without making my face look cakey the way most pressed powders do. The shade is also so light that it dosen't make me look orange the way pressed powders can do.
The best bit about this particular foundation is that it didn't irritate my skin the way other mineral foundation has, so if you have sensitive skin, this is one to try! I do think this is a very good quality foundation for the cheaper than chips price! So I will definatley be getting more when it has run out, and am also thinking of trying some of ELF's other mineral make-up.
Another thing worth mentioning is that the ELF kabuki brush works so good with this! It picks up the right amount of powder and it's so easy to just buff this into your skin with the kabuki brush, so i'd say it's worth getting the brush if you're getting this foundation. The Kabuki brush is also €4, and is on the website where all the mineral make up is.
Thanks for reading and take care!
