    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Acne Fighting Foundation:

    This is my go-to base foundation anytime I'm breaking out, which is almost constantly! It makes redness and spots literally disappear, but I usually put a different foundation over it because alone it's a bit too dark for me. PSA: all the lighter shades are on the e.l.f. Website!!! Idk why ULTA doesn't have them :(((
    I do have to say that although this stuff hasn't made me break out, I've also never gotten rid of any pimples from using it. But at least it covers them!

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Acne Fighting Foundation:

    I never use to have a ton of breakouts until I started using this foundation. It's one of those foundations that if you touch your face, your fingers will have so much make up on and will need to wash them off.

    I ordered a color that was too dark. All they had available were darker shades. I would love to try this in a lighter shade and see how it works on my acne prone skin.

          Smooth application, feels clean and light but gives great coverage, while you feel like y ou are treating your skin. After applying, give it a minute befor building, it has to set a bit. I mix sand shade with revlon beige for a perfect long lasting look all day.

          I love this foundation so much, it is my every day go to! BUT WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE SHADESS???? I have a very yellow skin tone and this foundation, like many other drug store products have a more pink undertone. I wish elf would expand to make this more inclusive because its a great foundation and such an awesome price. Love to blend with my fingers or a sponge for a flawless finish.

          Iffy lol

          By Vero

          from MA

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Acne Fighting Foundation:

          I like the foundation and coverage is nice but you guys need to have lighter colors. I'm not white, I'm Hispanic but my skin color is a pretty light complexion. I tried the lightest color shown and it's still too dark for my face. I'm happy with the product because it does the job and I don't break out but it also leaves me extremely oily by the end of the day; which is why I'm iffy about it. I wash my face before hand, use either spray or cream primers and my face still ends up oily.

          Actually Acne Fighting

          By Kayla97

          from Tennessee, United States

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Acne Fighting Foundation:

          Normally foundations break my face out so bad to the point that I have stopped using foundation unless it's a special occasion. This foundation doesn't do that to me! It keeps my breakouts at bay, I just wish there were more shades. I'm very fair and use the lightest shade Porcelain, which works great in summer when I am tan, but doesn't work at all in winter when I get pale as a ghost. Please make a wider shade range!

          Absolute Favorite!

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Acne Fighting Foundation:

          This is my go-to everyday foundation! I have been so impressed with this foundation and it has replaced all of my other high-end and drugstore favorites in my makeup bag. Most importantly, this foundation does not break me out as many other brands and products seem to do. I prefer this to the Clinique foundation that is targeted to similar skin concerns and cost 5x as much. I am so much happier with my skin as a result of this product and if you can find a shade that you're happy with I highly, highly recommend purchasing this (elf please, please, please, expand your shade range and restock this product more frequently!).
