HD Mattifying Cream Foundation is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 353.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More colors for us dark skin girls I bought the Caramel Color when it was still available, i was going to re-order some BUT, i see that this color has been discontinued. I'm going to try the Buff and see how light it is on my skin tone. It's so hard to find the right foundation color for my skin tone and i don't like mixing shades. Any ladies out there who use to order Caramel, have you tried the Buff?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Coverage ever! I used to spend way too much money on Mac for a similar product. This one is more affordable and works just as good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hated it I could not get this product to agree with my skin at all. It was super greasy looking. I tried to set it with a powder, which helped to bring down the shine. But that made it cake up really badly. Used a high end setting spray, but it still would not work. Can wipe it completely off with just my finger. I have mostly normal skin, so I can't quite determine who to recommend this for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Bit Too Dry I bought this for myself in order to find a good go-to foundation. My skin is usually pretty dry, so I was a little bit hesitant to get a matte foundation. It has great pigmentation and lasted for quite a while, but I don't think it's for me. Maybe once I get my skin under control I'll be able to handle it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatness I have sensitive and oily skin, I have used many different foundations, powders, concealers in the past. This one Elf has put out is one of my favorites!!!! It slides and glides on to your skin. When I first used it, I used to much of it so it looked caked, when I use it again the next day I used less and it looked great, blending and spreading it out makes a huge difference. I feel that this foundation will last a longer time then other foundations. The price you really can not beat either!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Foundation Ever I discovered this foundation within this past year. Of all the foundations I have ever used I love this the most! It goes on smooth and light, it evens out my skin tone without feeling heavy or greasy, it looks natural and it lasts all day. I don't even need to follow up with a powder to set it. Most of all it does all this without irritating my skin which is very sensitive to makeup products. I will keep using it as long as it continues to be available, which I hope is always!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from showcases my flaws and then melts off When I put it on, it looks okay for about 2 seconds before it starts to slide "off" my face. Except it's not really off, more like into my pores, around my scars, etc. so that all the flaws I wanted to hide seem to stand out (at least to me). It creases very badly and comes off at the slightest touch. I noticed today that it was running off my face while I was out in the sun even though I wasn't even sweating. It claims to be mattifying, but even in the compact, it looks oily.That said, there is a good amount of product for the cost.Overall, a disappointment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very greasy and cakey I hated this product. It applies pretty smoothly but immediately looks cakey. It also, oddly, is very shiny. I had to put powder over it, which did NOT apply well over the foundation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too pink If you have a light olive skin like me and usually turn a pale greenish-yellow in the winter then I would avoid this. The foundation ended up looking more like a cream blush on my face. Granted my skin is literally what would happen if the grinch and a snowman had a lovechild. If you have a neutral to cool undertone you should be great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The only foundation Ive used and continued using. My face breaks out to almost any kind of foundation. This one is the only one so far that my skin loves. Too bad, the stores here don't carry it anymore....I've been searching.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matches my skin perfectly. Lately I've having issues finding the perfect foundation to match my skin. I usually wear 355 with Fit by maybelline. My skin complexion tends to change with the weather making 355 too light with an ashy look. I was a little worried about the coco being to dark for my skin. After putting on and contouring with a light conceal I was so happy with the finishing look. Also matte which is great because my skin is oily. So happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from smooth love this foundation so far goes on smooth and very buildable (i used a brush instead of the sponge included)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good feel however, I can use this without it smearing and feeling like it's about to come off. the pigment is beautiful onto my skin which is what I am looking for.would someone help me in telling me what is a good primer to make sure that this make doesn't come off

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great coverage I bought this product about a month ago. I'm fair skinned and this product was too light for me. I probably should have bought the sand color. But I put this over my primer, then I finish with elf's ivory powder. It gives me the coverage I need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color range is very lacking for darker skin tones I got this in Coco because it was the only deep color offered, but it was too dark. The next lighter color is way too light, need something in between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This foundation is smooth and creamy and dries within a few minutes to a fine, soft finish that looks very natural. With this foundation, I had a very even-looking skin tone and lost a bit of pinkness in my skin which really made my blush pop. It lasted for hours on my oily skin, but it didn't migrate into any creases or valleys on my face. It's creamy enough that somewhat dry skin would also work well with this product. If your skin is somewhat rough or occasionally flaky, I would probably skip this product for a liquid as I think the powder finish wouldn't be flattering to skin that needs a more moisturizing product. But this worked very well for me! A light application of this product is all you need for a natural, fresh face. I just lightly swirled the included sponge pad in the foundation to load the product, dabbed my face on my cheeks, forehead, and chin, and blended until it was even. I couldn't feel it on my face throughout the day, but occasional mirror checks showed me that my foundation was still in place. The sponge is enclosed in a separate compartment underneath the foundation so it isn't constantly swirling around in the product. The compact is fairly heavy duty and sturdy, giving this the appearance of a much more expensive product. It's also paraben-free (as of now), and it didn't irritate my eyes or skin and didn't break me out. If I could give this a sixth star, I would.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made my skin look extremely oily I bought this because it said it was mattifying but it's the complete opposite. I have oily skin but I can usually control it pretty well with finishing powder. But when I put this on, it made my face SO oily, I've never seen it so oily before. And it didn't really soak into my skin, it kind of just sat on top of my skin so anytime I accidentally bumped my face the foundation would come right off. I was so disappointed with this product because I like elf products. I threw it away that same day because I did not want to have to deal with that again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation! I like the texture and it applies and blends nicely. Covers what I want to cover but it doesn't feel like I'm buried in foundation. I get a matte finish when applied, I use it with a primer and it works well. Very pleased with this formula!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from e.l.f. HD Mattifying Cream Foundation {IN COCO} Beautiful finish and it blends well with my skin however, I don't believe this is really "matte" as it is creamy with my Combination Skin. It's a great purchase I must admit but I need to ask for Beauty Advice: should I use a really great Primer to ease the shine?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and feel! I spritz some revitalizing most on it and then applied and omg it went on sooooo beautifully! I have combination skin and an oily t zone and this stuff leveled out my face texture! AMAZING!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Value I ordered this and got the lightest color, which matches well for me. However, I don't think it's mattifying. If I don't use a mineral makeup over top it definitely doesn't stay and my face is extremely shiny/oily. But, with the mineral makeup over top it does ok.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Try their other foundations I used this after the powder foundation was unavailable. This one applies very uneven and will not blend. It is shiny. I tried to do a single layer over my face and it looked really bad. I thought this would apply easily, as I've tried other brands in the same type of format, but I tried the sponge that came with it plus I also tried applying it with a brush or a beauty blender. It was like it was too thick and wouldn't even out. Maybe I will risk it and try a different ELF foundation. I don't understand how this has so many positive reviews...On the plus(?) side, it came off with just wet tissue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great texture! The coverage is pretty good, and matches my skin perfectly. It is actually matte.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I've been buying this product for a good while now, I switched over from more expensive brands that worked practically the same. I use the color Sand, I have light skin. It works really well, lasts for the majority of the day, and I have VERY long days. I do notice that the coverage lasts longer when paired with elf's primer, also it can get a bit oily (not for everyone but I work in hot temperatures), but I quickly fixed that with elf's mattifying powder, haven't have that problem since. I actually get compliments on how well my makeup holds up throughout my work day. One con I have about it is that I find that the case breaks kind of easily, not a huge problem and it tends to happen just when I'm ready to buy a new one anyways. Again, it lasts me all day and I rarely even have to touch up between getting off from work and going to class. I'm very happy with this product and the value is just so great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised 1st purchased almost 2 months ago. Wasn't sure if I liked it. Thought it would be too oily. Put it aside, trying to use up my $38 IT CC. Tried it again and realized it appears oily but once applied w/sponge it blends nicely, isn't oily, didn't settle into my over-60 face. Sponge w/compact makes application quick and clean! Very glad I gave it another chance! Won't be buying IT CC again. Good product and great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweet rediscovered treasure okay, so I bought this in the shade Buff almost a year ago. I've used it 2 times and I wasn't impressed, mostly because I thought the shade was too dark for me. I was going through my makeup again because I noticed all my foundations weren't fitting me well (it's summer) so I decided to try this again and omg I fell in love. I used a flat top kabuki brush and buffed it in and paired it with the ELF HD loose powder in corrective yellow to set. it is medium to full coverage, it lasted throughout the day in 80 degree weather with 70% humidity. at the end of the day I did notice some shine on my nose but not a lot like I usually would have but bare in mind that my T zone is oily. this will be my go to foundation for the rest of the summer.
