e.l.f. Mineral founation review

Hey guys
so as you know a couple of weeks ago I made my first e.l.f. purchase I've already told you all about how much I love the blush I got here so now I'm going to tell you all how much I love the mineral foundation. 

I got the fair one because I am so pale a the moment, I'm hoping this weather we're having will sort that out soon though. It cost £3.50 which I think is amazing for a mineral foundatio and it came in a little box. I wasn't quire sure how to apply this foundation at first as I've only ever used liquid before, in the end I settled for my No7 foundation brush and it worked relly well. 

The main problem I have with my skin is that it's very oily, actually very is an understatement it produces so much oil I could probably run a car off it, gross I know. Anyway because of this I find foundation always sits so heavy on my skin and doesn't last long. The elf one however being a powder just feels so light on my skin I love the feeling of it and you can put as much on as you need to to build up the coverage. 

However I would say it doesn't have anymore staying power than the other foundations I've tried. I especially love it as a concealer under my eyes the 
way you can build it up makes it so useful for hiding bags.

Now as you can see the pores on my nose and face are massive and very dark. Now I don't know if it's because of something I'm doing or what but if any of you have any tips to reduce them or make them go away please share!! 

I don't get a massive amount of spots anymore so my nose is the main area that a foundation needs to fix for me and as you can see it does. It works very well at covering up my large pores. 

I'm sorry about the photo of me without any makeup on I know my nose is so disgusting but I really wanted to show you what it did.

I will definitely be purchasing this product again when I next do an e.l.f. order. for £3.50 it's amazing!

  2. Wow! I'm always sceptical of the cheaper brand products but this looks really effective.. Does it last very long or did you find yourself re-applying? x

    1. Well I was only at home revising but it lasted well, I had to put a bit a powder on my nose a couple of times however I think that was probably due to my oily skin x

  3. Found you through the blog hop - I've actually heard really great things about e.l.f. products, and after this I'm pretty sure I'm convinced I need to try some myself. Great post!
