HD Mattifying Cream Foundation is rated 3.7668 out of 5 by 193.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have very oily skin and I love this stuff! I bought this some time ago after reading about crea foundations and such a reasonable price I thought why not? It is not matte at all but perfect in ombination with other product. I layer primer, oil absorbing powder, this foudation, ELF HD powder, and spritz with elf mist & set. I have tried it in various combinations and layered differently but this is the best way. On occasion it doubles as cocaler when I'm running late! Great stuff and lasts all day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DON'T reformulate, DON'T discontinue, just RENAME. This product is awesome !!!! This is something I would buy in bulk, however it is nowhere near a matte finish foundation. Without powder it is completley dewy and creamy looking and with power it ends up just looking extremely natural with just a hint of shine. It really does look like smooth perfect skin. It needs to be renamed though. Just take out the word mattifying. Even though it is not matte it does wear well .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overal I have sensitive skin which I have spent so much money on trying to find the perfect coverage without drying out my face. THIS DOES IT. Never stop making this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff This is my everyday foundation. It's got great color and coverage for my skin tone, which can be very hard to match (I am black/white biracial). My color (Caramel) isn't carried in stores around here, so I buy several compacts at a time when there's a sale. Can't go without it! For extra matte, I'll sometimes use some pressed powder on top, but it's not necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful! Bought in "sand" and completely matched my skin (light with yellow undertone). Lasted throughout the day (no rigorous activity). Didn't notice it rub off on anything. Didn't feel cakey or like a mask - was perfect! Cream easy to apply and blended nicely. I used the e.l.f. small stipple brush to apply. I have normal skin so any foundation type works fine, but for drier months I prefer creams/liquids - this is a great cream to work with. No acne so I can't attest to it's coverage, but I'd guess it would work well. Didn't give 5/5 stars because I haven't had it long enough to completely say it's perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Oily, no staying power-even when using a setting powder, felt heavy on my skin, difficult to color match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage! I just got this one yesterday, and used it today and I have to say its very nice. The coverage this product offers easily compares to high quality brands. I'm very pleased with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coverage! I bought this a few months ago because i dont normally wear a foundation in the summer but I do in the winter because i have very pale skin. That being said, it also makes it very hard to find a light enough foundation for me. But this stuff it great! I love it! Its thick and creamy and goes on great. Great color and its lasts all day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love, love, LOVE! This is a great foundation with excellent coverage for people who have dry, combination skin. I love how with this foundation you can build onto it and your face wont look cakey. I also love the cream texture of it, it makes it so much easier to apply. I stocked up for myself and bought some for my sisters and mom to try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Acne-Prone Skin! This makeup goes on light, but can build to a flawless look. My skin is very sensitive to makeup. Since I've learned that I am sensitive to Gluten, I was ecstatic to learn that E.L.F.'s makeup line is Gluten-Free!! Since I've been using E.L.F. products, my skin has reacted positively (without occassional breakouts)!I am not a makeup artist and only wear makeup mostly during the work week and special occasions. I am so excited that I've finally found an affordable makeup brand to use to get that "Polished Look".Thanks E.L.F.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my go to foundation! I love the coverage on this foundation! i bought it in sand, and it is true to color. I love that it does dry matt (but only if you use a little!!) a little goes a long way with this product! if you pack it on it doesn't dry matt and leaves your skin very oily. It does have enough coverage so if you use a little you still will have the desired look you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Camper i mean customer :-) Okay so basically my skins changing alot lately so i figured it was time to search for new makeup, and let me tell you, i came to the right place. This product is so affordable, and at first i was a little skeptical of that but the quality and coverage is great even through bad breakouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but... Love, love, love ... Except! I would have given this a five star, except either the makeup itself or the sponge applicator wreaks! Nasty plastic/ chemical smell for hours after application, disgusting! Which is totally disappointing since the coverage is anazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matches Pretty Well I bought this product about three weeks ago, I just used it for the #elfmakeovercontest because I wanted to challenge myself to use 100% elf products. Long story short, I am a dark skinned beauty, and the coco color was a tad off, but can be worked with if used with other products. It is much lighter in person and has yellow undertone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almond Undertone FAIL Once again e.l.f., you got it wrong with the undertone for darker skin. The VAST majority of people who would wear a shade like "Almond" DO NOT HAVE PINK UNDERTONES! So then WHY do you keep making shades like this???? It only makes us look ashen. The formula would be great if the shade weren't so bad. The other fail is with the packaging which fell apart quickly. It was a waste of money. If you need help in formulating shades, feel free to contact me. I am a former Custom Blend Specialist so I know what I'm talking about...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice foundation...light coverage I like this foundation and that it comes in a compact for on-the-go touch ups. The coverage is light, though, and I need a heavier coverage. I couldn't use it as my primary foundation, but for touch ups, it's great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coverage, but runs lighter Overall, I find this foundation to be pretty good, but not as even in coverage as the cream Flawless Foundation. I also noted that this color runs a shade brighter, though I'm unsure if it's based on how this behaves compared to the cream pump Flawless foundation. I suggest going for the next step up if you usually use porcelain. I have Asian heritage, therefore I ran into a problem. With Flawless Foundation, I get the exact color I want. Using Porcelain as this mattifying cream, I look like a China doll. While my hand matched my face, my face is usually a bit more tan. Using my bronzer pallet (also ELF) may change this, but I haven't experimented yet.When I spread this on my face, dabbing instead of pat & smear makes it look too packed on. I don't suggest dabbing to get the coverage you desire. If anything, don't pack it on like you would a cream foundation. Start light and layer it on.I also tried this in combination with the poreless primer. Go very light with that primer, or avoid it entirely. The usual mineral primer is less hydrating, but gives a nice smooth finish. I feel that the poreless primer keeps this foundation from properly drying and going to matte form.If you want a matte finish, use this product. But play around with it before donning this and going out. I'd bought this in hopes of using it to freshen up while out, so I'll see how things go. If I contour properly, I'm sure I can make this work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Amazing Color! But definitely NOT matte. I have pretty oily skin in general and I was hoping that when I bought this product, it would be "mattifying" like it promised. Unfortunately it just didn't hold up. The color I picked up was perfect for my skin but the oil still shows through, even with a setting powder. I will not be buying this foundation again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Depends on Application I bought this in Porcelain on a 50% off sale so it was only $3.00.. can't go wrong with that! When I first put it on I used E.L.F's Mineral Infused Primer and then put this foundation on with a regular foundation brush and it was leaving brush strokes on my face and not blending very well. It stayed pretty creamy instead of turning into a powered texture. I put E.L.F.'s Mineral Pressed Powder over top to dry it up a bit and it seemed to cover up the streaking and the greasy parts but it was cakey.The second time I put this on I used the sponge it comes with and let me tell you it is 100x better this way! Silly me for trying to do it otherwise haha! The sponge made it blend smoothly, no streaking, and it actually settled as a powder this time go figure!I have oily fair skin, this shade is the tiniest bit too dark but nothing that can't be fixed with Transleuscent Powder. I would recommend still using a powder over top because it doesn't quite get the powder finish all over. I prefer the acne fighting foundation from E.L.F. over this product.
