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

          I bought this thinking it was a normal foundation, which it's not. That's probably why it's called a "foundation serum". It's almost like a tinted moisturizer, just a bit thinner. Now, even though it's not what I thought, I still love it! It gives a very light coverage, so it's not going to cover up all your imperfections. But it does brighten up your face! I use this whenever I need a quick makeup look! I would definitely recommend this product!

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

            I invest in great skincare for my combination skin so this sheer foundation evens out my skin tone beautifully and offers very natural look. It blends well with light taps with beauty blender and stays on all day. Excelent for daytime makeup, workd wonderful with a lot of products and offers great sun protection. A must for summer time! It is a small bottle but the pump works wonderfully and 1-2 pumps deliver wonderful results. I put away my Chanel and YSL foundations for this one. I bought 5 more already but I am still on the first bottle for the last 3 months. It has serum content with vitamins that improve skin appearance significantly. No patches and no pore clogging. Great product!!! Love it!

              If you're looking for a super lightweight product and very sheer coverage, this is the foundation for you. I have large pores and find that this Foundation doesn't cover them at all. Slight facial discoloration also doesn't get covered with this foundation.

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

              I've used this for a few days and so far I love it! I like full coverage usually so I put this on before my foundation! It makes my skin soft and seems to help make my makeup last longer. I think people are forgetting it is a SERUM so yes it will be watery.. and it is meant as LIGHT COVERAGE. And I love that it has spf!! I have slightly dry skin so I'm not sure how it would be for oily skin but it seems to soak in quickly.

              I LOVE elf and i really am a die hard fan but oh my goodness was this foundation a mess. It was so watery. It had little to no coverage and when I finally got it to stay on my face it would just flake off. Like how does that even happen?! I have oily skin and that's never happened. Also this made me break out super ugly. I rarely break out, and this gave me so many pimples it was honestly ridiculous. This was definitely a miss from elf. By far one of their worst products

              Healthy Skin Look!

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

              I bought this foundation shortly after it was released and was less than impressed. I was aware, from watching plenty of YouTube reviews, that it was watery and very light coverage. Here are my tips from using this foundation over the last month: 1. Use a water based primer (like the Aqua Beauty Primer Mist). A silicone primer doesn't work well with this foundation 2. Apply with a dense brush, not a sponge (like the Selfie Ready Foundation brush) as the sponge will just soak it all up. 3. 1st layer will literally look like nothing, let it dry and apply a 2nd layer. You will be surprised at how much more coverage it adds. Patting down with a sponge in between really helps too With this being more sheer to medium coverage, it won't cover blemishes well but it will give a healthy skin look. I did not like this stuff at all when I first purchased, but it's grown on me a lot and I love using it now. It's perfect for summer too! Very light and you'll barely feel like you're wearing foundation.

              Awesome coverage for older skin

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

              I am now on my second container. This is so light weight and looks awesome on. I'm over 50 and my skin is a little wrinkled and starting to dry in spots. I like a lightweight foundation that doesn't dry my skin out and show more wrinkles. This glides on and stays moist. I don't even have to add a powder. I've gotten lazy in my old age and try to do less. This has become a staple!
