Flawless Finish Foundation is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1481.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO MEDIUM SHADE FOR ME :( I bought this foundation a couple of months ago in the shades sand and buff. I tested both out and I really like the finish and the way it feels on my skin; it doesn't feel like it's on my skin. I have sensitive combination-oily skin, with some dry patches/spots at the moment and this foundation hasn't broke me out yet which is a plus. It does have quite a strong perfume-y/ baby powder kind of fragrance to it but once it's on it doesn't bother me but if you're someone who doesn't like that kind of scent or scented things bother you then maybe this foundation is not for you but you can try it out if you want to. Another thing to note is that there's no true shade match for me sadly. I would consider myself a medium with yellow/olive/neutral undertone(s). For reference, I'm in the shade Medium 1-Sandy Beige in the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mouse foundation.The E.L.F. foundation shade in sand is a couple of shades too light for me; I would consider it a light-medium with a neutral/yellow undertone while the shade buff is a few shades too dark for me; it's a tan/medium-tan/medium-deep with orange/warm undertone. THERE IS NO MEDIUM SHADE FOR ME. I had to mix both shades together and they still don't have the right match in undertone when mixed together(either comes out a shade or two too light for me and a bit ashy or comes out too dark and orange). I might buy the shade nude in hopes that it match me better than either of the previous two but I kind of doubt that it will...E.L.F. I hope you're reading this, please make a true medium shade and not to mention better shades for the deep girls as well! I hope review was helpful for you all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product,wrong color I wish E.L.F did returns considering their foundation shades are a little tricky. I guess one day I'll have to find my shade in store instead of ever buying online again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like how it covers, However BUT..I am very disappointed in the amount that actually comes in this bottle and the other foundations.The packaging makes it look like a fairly good size however there is actually very little in theses bottles. Disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a shade for pale skin! I just recieved my ordered, I haven't tried it on my face yet to know how it wears but the color was amazing! I ordered light ivory. I am very pale with a cool pink tone to my skin. The foundation does still lean more toward a yellow undertone but once on my hand and blended out it matched very well. Also, just from the feel and consistancy from swatching it I believe it will do very well on my combination skin, it did not feel greasy or oily but it also did not feel too thick or cakey and or blended out very nice. I am going to order the alabaster and see how they look mixed as well since from the picture it seems more pink. But I am so pleased! Thank you for expanding your colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved the coverage of this product; however, it smells like baby powder which was a no go for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its good The price point is great and the coverage is also pretty good. But even light ivory isn't light enough for me. So maybe make a couple even more fair shades of this foundation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not my favorite Received this foundation as a gift. Gave me an awful break out. The foundation itself made my skin look patchy and crepe-y. Would not recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am really surprised about how good this foundation is! I have a lot of issues trying to find my shade, but it seems like elf has been able to find the perfect tone for me. I really like the coverage and the feel of this foundation too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! I bought this because I didn't want to spend a lot of cash on a foundation. I usually wear Chanel. I love it. I wear moisturizer under it and it works great with my skin. Definitely worth the six bucks. The only thing I don't like, it looks a little dry at the end if the day. But my skin gets super dry in the colder months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome wear and finish, horrible transfer This foundation is my go to! It is affordable, and really does leave a flawless finish since it blends so well with other makeup products! The only reason I took off a star is because no matter what I do, this foundation still transfers a little. I may just need to use more powder, so this is a con that can be looked over. Overall great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and value. I purchased this recently in Porcelain at my local Target. The coverage is excellent on this product, the pump is great. The product itself is a bit thick, so if you like a more liquid product you might not like this. I use a face oil under this, then elf's primer as well. Lasts all day, doesn't turn, and while it's a bit drying for me (I turn 60 this year), I think it will be a great summer foundation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I really like how this foundation look on my skin, I have dry skin and I apply it with a sponge, and under neath I apply the ELF Pore less Primer and the Prep & Hydrate Balm and it looks beautiful!, It doesn't sink on my pores either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. I'm shook. I tried this foundation today as a repurchase (the first time I couldn't find the right shade but I recently found the perfect shade) and I absolutely love it. I was worried because I have oily skin but it stayed really beautiful on my skin and it dried down so nicely. I will say that it took a long time to feel dry even after using powder (beautifully bare finishing power) but once it finally did it had a beautiful finish. New favorite for my makeup kit for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too dark for pale skin I have fair skin and this is much too dark for me. I am never usually the fairest shade in foundations and so thought this would be ok but unfortunately it makes me look orange. I like the finish - it isn't cakey on the skin yet I wouldn't really say it gave a 'studio' finish - it is more natural. Please cater for paler girls elf!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didnt cover up zits, pimples or any blemishes. I had bought this a couple months ago because of how inexpensive it was but it had no coverage on my skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Even the lightest shade isn't meant for fair skin I have very fair skin and even the lightest shade is way too dark. Waste of $6.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Say's it Oil Free but doesn't feel like it I bought this a month ago, it felt thick and oily. tried to rinse off and water beaded on skin. Did not cover well, shows imperfections like pores or scars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coverage! I bought this foundation to give it a try as I am currently trying all ELF makeup and I have completely fallen In love! And the price this is the best foundation ever!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I. LOVE. THIS. FOUNDATION. I have spent years trying to find a foundation that gives me full coverage but doesn't feel heavy and look cakey. I finally found it! The Flawless Finish Foundation makes my skin look amazing - even tone, smooth texture - and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup. And I barely have to use any - two small pumps on a brush gave me perfect, beautiful coverage that felt light and breathable. I'm so happy with this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised For 6 bucks, I was not expecting much but this foundation is quite nice. It dries to a powdery matte finish which I like. It gives me an airbrushed look that lasts all day. My oils breakthrough a little on my forehead and cheeks, but Ive used more expensive foundations that allow much more breakthrough. I will definitely repurchase.The darkest shade matches me well but there are people much darker than me who ELF should make shades for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this foundation! I LOVE this foundation! I just started using this a few months ago and I'm very happy with the result. It gives great coverage and I LOVE the smell, too. This is now my NEW favorite foundation. Thanks ELF!! <3

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coverage I like the texture, coverage, and application. It didn't dry too quickly during application, and it stays put fairly well. I would love to see a wider shade range (specifically, a lighter shade with less orange tone), and I'm sure darker-skinned folks would really appreciate more range on their end as well. It'd also be great to be able to get it in a larger container, because I've been going through it quickly, and feeling bad about the waste from packaging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice match, good coverage, but does not last After using Bare Minerals for years, I decided to give this a try, since I had an e.l.f. gift card. I haven't had any problems with the cakiness others have described. I actually find it goes on smooth and offers nice coverage--but only for a couple hours at most. By the time my work day is over, I barely have anything on my face. I always follow my makeup with the e.l.f. Prime & Stay Finishing Powder, so there's no reason my makeup should be wearing away so quickly. For that I can't give this more than three stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NEED A LIGHTER PORCELAIN SHADE Okay so the porcelain shade is VERY yellow toned, the one I bought almost looked like ivory. I don't know if it was just mine but it was very yellow toned. Wish it was more the shade of Maybelline's Fit Me Matte + Poreless porcelain because I'm very white. Didn't even need to try it on the face because I knew from the test on my hand it was too yellow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I have to say this is the best foundation that I have ever used! It's lightweight, you don't feel like you have anything on. I am really happy with the shade as well. I usually have a hard time finding just the right shade because my skin color is kind of in between shades, I am Indian and Russian, I have like a tan-ish,l light brown, olive mix.I got the Caramel and it is perfect, it looks so natural and really gives a smooth appearance. I have a couple of little blemishes and it covers them completely as well. I am so happy that I finally the perfect foundation! Hallelujah! Thank you E.L.F. ! Please do not ever discontinue!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy With This Product If you have dry skin, clogged pores, or a decent amount of acne (so, pretty much any imperfections on your face whatsoever), this product is probably NOT for you. When I applied it, it looked super cakey and not at all like a "flawless finish." It clung to all of my dead skin, clogged pores, and whiteheads. Also, I have quite pale skin and the lightest shade was way too dark for my skin and it looked orange.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Go To Very happy with the coverage and how well it blends, but after 2 weeks I couldn't pump it out of the bottle. It's very thick (I like thick foundations and concelears) and you can't beat the price. I've tried a lot of foundations but I always go back to this one.
