Hi everyone! Today I'm going to review the ELLE 18 GLOW FOUNDATION. I usually like experimenting with different types of compacts, lip-glosses, nail-polishes, etc but I've never tried experimenting with a foundation and to be honest I didn't risk using a foundation fearing how it will react with my skin. The very few FOTD I did, you'll se that there is no mention of any foundation. This is the first time I took a chance and bought this product. Well, so let's see how it turned out.
ELLE 18 GLOW FOUNDATION is a medium shaded foundation that will go with fair-average skin tone and I think it will work to an extent for even darker-toned people.
Price: 150/- for 30 g (that's pretty cheap for a foundation). Available here
Packaging: The product comes in a black tube the company's name and logo in front and details on the back. It has pink and white scriptures.
Product: The product is liquid with a thick texture. It is somewhat dry and not waterproof. It has a mild fragrance.
My Experience: ELLE 18 GLOW FOUNDATION provides an even coverage throughout the face and blends easily without leaving any whitish cast. It is not mentioned whether it has a SPF or not. The product is a thick liquid. It has a sweet and mild fragrance. It provides an even-toned complexion. It does not give any artificial, extra glowing skin but provides a natural glow. The negative point is that it is not waterproof and it do not moisturises the skin but leaves a dry one. So, I'll suggest using it with a moisturiser. But you will need a concealer for covering major imperfections. It also leaves some residues and minor patches. Another thing I personally felt that it should be available in more than 1 shade. It remains long if not washed or sweated.
1. Extremely cheap.
2. Mild fragrance.
3. Evens skin tone.
4. Blends easily.
5. Gives a natural glow.
6. Do not leave whitish cast.
7. Cute packaging.
- Somewhat dry
- Does not moisturises
- Available in only 1 shade
- Unable to hide major imperfections.
- Leaves minor patches and residue.
The ELLE 18 GLOW FOUNDATION is overall a good foundation for its price. It is good for daily use or in just a casual hangout with friends. It does not give any unnatural glow, neither leaves a whitish cast. If used with a moisturiser it will mark up your expectations. This foundation really left a good impression on my mind. So, no fears just try it out!!!!!
