Acne Fighting Foundation is rated 4.127753303964758 out of 5 by 908.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Foundation! Bought this with very low hopes that it would actually match my skin tone, I purchased porcelain which I believe is the lightest shade. To my surprise it wasn't too dark like some foundations can be and it also didn't make my face look orange or cakey. The product took a little bit of effort to blend in but looks and feels good on the skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not enough color diversity, but still good! This foundation would be incredible if not for the fact that the lightest shade available makes me look orange! You would think a shade called "porcelain" would be good for someone with relatively pale skin, but it is still a shade or two too dark for me, and I am FAR from the palest person I know. The darkest available shade doesnt't look like it would be good for several darker skin tones either. Another con is that it creases very easily so keep it far away from your eye area! Other than the color and the creasing, this foundation is wonderful. It has surprisingly good coverage without feeling too cakey, and it has a nice dewy finish. I have also found that it is pretty water-resistant, too, which is always nice! All-in-all, I would definitely recommend this foundation to people with more mid-toned skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good foundation This is a new foundation to me. What an amazing price. Good coverage, however the shades are lighter than they may appear online. I just use bronzer to darken mine up if needed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love !! I just started doing my makeup. I love this foundation it's really great. I have bad acne and it has been making it a little better. Most foundations have made me break out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coverage I bought this a while ago in hopes it would help cure my acne, I dont know if it will but it defiantly doesn't make me break out worse (thank god) it has pretty good coverage and I only need about 3 layers to cover my acne and scars which is a lot better compared to other foundations I've tried. I bought 2 different colors because I wasn't sure if porcelain would be to light for me or not, it is the PERFECT color for my skin tone. ..until it dries and turns pretty dark and pinkish..so that was pretty upsetting lol but it's still great if I mix it with a green/yellow concealer, so I don't know maybe I'll go get a tan so my foundation works better for me hahaha

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love! I bought this on a whim because my skin tone started to get tanner with the summer and OMG I wa shocked at how much I love it! I have *very* oily, acne prone skin and it's hard for me to find foundation that not only stays in place all day but doesn't make me look more oily than I naturally am. I usually used Becca's ultimate coverage complexion creme and I truly prefer Elf to that foundation. I am so happy I found this and I will definitely stick with it as my tan fades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the best!! This is the best foundation that I have ever used. I tend to break out a lot and it hides all of my acne and acne scars. It makes my skin look flawless even if I just use a little bit and noticeably prevents new breakouts really well. I can build the coverage as much as I want without sacrificing quality. Such a great product at such a low price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of parabens :( I wanted to like this, but should have checked the ingredients list first!!! Its chock full of parabens, and with all the new research coming out about how they degrade proteins, I'm not thrilled to put this anywhere near my face :((

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed! I have to admit that when I was looking at this product it wasn't on my priority list. I was very pleased with my previous foundation and thought the price for this one was kind of ehh for the size. I WAS ABSOLUTELY WRONG! I love this product SO much words can not even explain!!! This is by far the BEST coverage I have ever gotten from ANY of the many foundations I have used. If you want a foundation that makes your skin look flawless, covers up about every imperfection, and lasts throughout the entire day: this foundation is for you!! I will definitely be buying again! Absolutely the best I have EVER used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fights & Covers Blemishes This shade beige was a great match with my skin tone. I was really happy with this because I had been having difficulty finding a foundation that matched my skin tone well. Great for the price and did clear up pimples as well as cover them until they were completely gone. It has salicylic acid which is in many acne fighting products and does a great job in this foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I have very sensitive skin and liquid foundation tends to make it itchy, however this one does not. I have seen a decrease in acne breakout since use. I would give it a five but i wish they had a lighter shade. I am very pale and I have the lightest shade, porcelain, and when first applied it looks very dark and a little orange next to my skin tone. I have found that their powder helps lighten it up a bit though. Overall a great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love! The foundation color I bought was too dark! Is the Porcelain color comparable to the "Light" color in the BB cream?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I don't know how I feel about it I recently bought this foundation at Target. It was $6 in the store, as well. I tried it out this morning, and let's just say that I was disappointed. I had to try four different ways of applying this product to my face. I used my Beaty blender, and brush, and my finger. The first time I put it on, there was MINIMAL coverage on my blemishes (they were still very prominent on my face). Every time that I took the foundation off, and found a new way of applying it, the coverage would get slightly better. Once I got to a coverage level that I was okay with, I looked at the overall appearance. The product looked cakey and shiny. You could definitely tell that I was wearing it. It felt heavy and sticky on my face. After all of that, I would not buy this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this foundation so much. HOWEVER I am really pale and I got Ivory before and it was a little dark. But now the lightest shade is Porcelain and it's DEFINITELY too dark. I really want to continue buying this sooo bad, ELF please make some shades better for the very pale girls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Which is darker? Is buff or beige darker? I have beige and it's a little too light now since I've got some sun. Don't know which one to move to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this make-up, a friend of mine had recommended it to me. And at first i was like ehh its to cheap which must mean its not good. But its actually the best foundation I have found so far, I have very oily like really oily and acne prone skin. I had been using Make up Forever foundation and powder and id literally wear it for a couple hours and it would just melt of my face But this Foundation stays on all day and it looks really good and I haven't broken out once since using it. Im seriously in love! Also the baked blushes are great too(:

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pigmentation I used this foundation for a little while, and to be honest I didn't pay attention to my acne, nor did I wear it enough to have the desired effect. I'm not saying that it doesn't fight acne, I'm just saying I can't tell you if it does. I can say though that it is a nice thick formula with great build-able coverage. I bought the palest shade, and its a tad orange for me, nothing my setting powder couldn't correct for me though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good, smooth foundation I love the formula, something that actually stays on my oily skin. Unfortunately, the lightest shade is a smidge to dark for my skin, even with a tan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love I bought this based on reviewsas far as coverage went and I am so happy I got this. Along with the Poreless face primer, my face looks so natural and like I barely have any make up on. If also is so lightweight that I feel like I have no makeup on my face compared to other brands primers and foundations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have been buying Ateliar makeup for years and years. Professional makeup and VERY expensive. I have never come across anything good enough until my mum accidentally bought too many of the buff acne fighting foundations. It is the best foundation I have ever come across! I use it EVERY day

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan I bought this a month ago and have used it several times. I have oily skin and the shine came through about an hour or two after wear. I'm not sure if it helps acne because I could not keep wearing it. I did try different setting powders as well as by itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that good The smell was nice thick consistency meaning you did not need much for a whone face, but it felt heavy and stick throughout th day and not recommending for normal to dry skin type

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this foundation! But need more shades! I love the mousse like text when apply this foundation. It also looks great as the day goes on! Also love that its acne fighting, and doesn't cause me to break out at all. I just wish this came in a lighter shade, I purchased the lightest shade porcelain, but its still a little to dark for me. Please make this in a lighter shade!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it I bought the shade Sand, the darkest shade I found in store. I'm in between nc42- nc45 right now and this foundation is quite a bit too light. I'd say sand is for nc35-37. I think nc40 can get away with it also. its not REALLY a big deal cuz I can bronze but I wish they sold darker shades in store. This foundation is verrrrrrry thick. I squeezed a little tiny bit on my hand and it does not move on your hand. That's one of my favorite things about it. You only need a little bit for your whole face, I literally put 2 pea sized drops and it was too much. It applied smoothly and applies very matte. I have very very oily skin so I was rejoiced. It was so matte I decided to wear some highlight since I never do. I didn't wear powder either which I almost never do. Thefinish is that matte. When I left the house it was pouring rain and had to run to my car, I checked my makeup and it was perfect still (and my face definitely got wet) I was indoors and out for the next six hours. As I checked thru the day my face got kinda shiny and the makeup was more obvious on my face. When I went to take it off (remember I had no primer powder spray or touch ups!) My face was shiny but it still looked good intact & it was a bit cakey even tho I didn't apply a lot. That being said with a powder & setting spray I probably won't get oily til 9 or ten hours. The way it wore on my skin makes me very happy. I don't know about the acne treatment but I like how it has those ingredients as a bonus. I give it 4 stars because the bad shade selection in store. But for $6 & more than one ounce I will definitely repurchase over and over

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really dark. I bought this and I was really excited to try it, but since I am super fair the lightest shade was not so light. It looked really bad on my skin and I can't say much about it since it is so dark. I wish it was a a couple more shades lighter then it would seem amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation I have tried lots of different foundations and this by far is the best. Does not leave my skin greasy. Matches my skin tone and helps cover scars and any blemishes I may have. Hoping it also helps clear my skin more as well. Will definitely buy again. Great price also

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well, but not for pale skin It works pretty well, not too liquid and blends well. Will not cause breakouts, clog your pores, or irritate acne. I bought the lightest shade (porcelain), but it was not pale enough for me, so I end up having to blot a corrector stick over it to lighten it up. If there were more available shades, it would be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pros and Cons I haven't noticed any improvement on acne. However, this has been the best foundation I've tried in the last couple of months. It is slightly less than full coverage, but doesn't feel heavy or thick. It stays damp for long enough to sponge it on with no streaking, but dries mattish. I have worn it without powder with no oiliness or issues with creasing. I'm definitely purchasing again
