yes it is runny but that's what makes it light

By missbrooklyn

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

True, it can be a little messy, after pumping some on my fingers to then apply to my face, I got tiny splatters on the furniture. But, I don't mind that at all because I love how if feels and looks on my face (and I love the price too). It is a serum. So I did not expect it to be creamy. I expect it to be a FLUID. And that is what I like about it. It gives my skin a nice glow. I use this on days that I don't need extreme sun protection, when I'm mostly home or out and about. My skin color is between the lighter shade and the medium. I bought medium and I really have to make sure that I use some on my neck. Because summer is coming and I will tan a little, this will end up being the perfect summer shade for me. In autumn I will buy the lighter one. I applied it with the beautifully bare foundation brush and I don't find that it leaves streaks. It actually gives the product a beautiful finish. I applied this over my serum and cream without primer. Looking forward to applying this on primer. Finally, I did not even use setting powder because I love how it dried on my face and gives me a natural glow. I really love this product.

Light, perfect for on the go

By kpen921

from Mojave, CA, United States

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

I'm mixed (filipina/white) and finding a foundation that matches is truly a feat. Like...I'm sure the other mixed babes know how it feels to have that chameleon skin that doesn't seem to fit any of those convoluted warm/cool/pink/yellow/neutral/olive tone guides, at least not completely. Buying this foundation seemed ill-advised since I did purchase online but it actually matches pretty well. I chose the light-medium, and I'm typically a light/medium in most drugstore bb creams. I didn't feel I looked pale when I put it on and I think it did oxidize a little darker, which to me is fine because I'd rather look the slightest shade darker than deal with the whitecast that some sheer foundations come with. My husband also pointed out that it covers my redness for the most part, but still sheer enough that my freckles show through, which I am very happy about. I use it with the elf Prep and Hydrate balm and a light dusting of setting powder (maybelline, I think). It gives me a nice dewy look and about 6 hrs later that dew hasn't evolved into Pam spray, if you know what I mean. Consider me a convert from Lancome and my wallet very happy.

Honest, legit review (:

By akjames3

from Hamlet, NC

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

When I first purchased this product, I was a little skeptical because it says, "Light weight, barely there makeup feel". I am used to have medium to full coverage in all of my foundations. However, it's now moving into the warmer months where I live and I wanted to try something that was very lightweight and didn't feel heavy on my skin for the summer time. I tried this foundation using a brush at first, I normally use a beauty blender or real techniques sponge to apply foundation. I noticed with the brush that it did have some small strokes where the brush had applied it. So I decided to start over and do it with a sponge. It applied BEAUTIFULLY! It gave a decent amount of coverage to be "light weight and barely there" so I was impressed. I ended up applying two layers and it was the perfect amount of coverage for me! I have normal to dry skin and this foundation feels so hydrating, light weight and it gives a beautiful "glow from within dewy appearance". I have been using this everyday since I purchased it two months ago and I am still in LOVE. It wears beautifully throughout the day and it keeps my skin looking glowy. I would completely reccomend this for spring/summer. It's an amazing product and I'm so glad that I over came my skeptical thoughts and decided to step out of my comfort zone and try this!

Inlovee!

By Daiglehallie

from Moncton, NB, Canada

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

I bought this about two weeks ago online with other items as well, lovelovelove the foundation!!! Its very runny but works well with the foundation brush i bought online also, as soon as i got home from work, tried out all the products i got, have to say, i will be definitely ordering this again, its not to heavy, somewhat of a light coverage but once you add a second layer it's perfect, i ordered the lightest possible and thought it was going to be to dark as i am very light skin toned, but matched actually pretty well as i was surprised. Also a lot goes a long way which is great! Would definitely recommend to people with sensitive skin as i very much have, so smooth! As i said, will be ordering a second bottle !

Horrible

By Elly Marie

from Canada

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

I'm sorry but this product looked disgusting on my skin, it was patchy, and stuck around the outside of my face, it had no coverage and made any little blemish look worse, do not recommend

    This provides excellent light coverage with a feeling of wearing nothing. I have freckles on my cheeks and hate foundation that erases them because it changes my entire appearance. This foundation provides enough coverage for red spots but goes on smooth enough and light enough so that I still look like myself! For breakouts, it provides light coverage that may need additional concealer.

    Days you really dont want to wear makeup

    By K to the C

    from Indiana

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

    This is my go to for days that I really don't want to wear makeup. I put this on and the bare minimum of any other makeup to just give my face a nice little touch up. It works well for me and it does make my skin look better. The price def is a plus so I'm not spending too much money or wasting my more expensive makeup on just blah days. Gotta give your skin a little break every now and then. I use my setting powder to help keep it on my face all day since it is super runny.

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

    Being fair skinned it is sometimes hard to find a perfect color that is not too dark for my skin. Love this foundation! Blends well and goes on perfectly. Cant say enough good things about this product.

    Runny

    By pleasegetmyshade

    from College Station, TX

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum:

    Looked at a few reviews and it seems like I have the same problem. This was RUNNY. I almost spilled it on myself, because it has the consistency of water. I love their regular foundation, but they don't have my shade. I wanted to try this instead. Coverage was horrible. Would definitely not recommend.
