REVIEW | E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick, The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Foundation & E.L.F. Mineral Foundation







This is how I look without makeup. I look very exhausted. :(



This is my E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick (Apricot Beige). This is the only concealer I have because I don't really use concealers that much.


The concealer on my dark areas. This photo was taken before blending it. After blending it (sorry, no photo was taken), I realized that the shade was too light for me. That's why I decided to blend in a cream-based foundation.




This is my mom's The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Foundation SPF 25 (#2). I borrowed it because this matches my skin tone better than my concealer. I applied this on my face and blended it with the concealer.



Now, my skin looks better with the cream foundation applied on.



To set the concealer and cream foundation, I used this E.L.F. Mineral Powder Foundation (fair). Now I'm done with concealer, cream foundation and powder foundation.


 

REVIEW:

E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick

Pros:

- Very affordable. (around 130 pesos)

- Handy. You can bring it anywhere.

- Can actually cover some dark spots.

- Can be found easily in the department stores.

- Can also be used as a primer.

- Lasts long.


Cons:

- The packaging isn't that sturdy. When I twisted the knob of the concealer, the applicable part broke and was separated from the container.


Overall Rating: 9/10

Will I repurchase? Yes, if I find a darker shade.



The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Foundation SPF 25

Pros:

- Easy to blend with my concealer.

- Smooth when applied.

- My mom got this on sale: buy one, take one. (around 1200 pesos)

- Dries as a powder.

- It has SPF 25.

- It has marula oil that helps repair skin's moisture barrier.

- It has baobab oil (contains Vit. A, E anf F) that encourages skin cell regeneration.

- The metal-like packaging is very classy-looking.


Cons:

- A bit expensive when not on sale.

- I prefer to use a foundation brush than the sponge applicator that is included in the packaging.



Overall Rating: 9/10

Will I repurchase? Yes, even if it's not on sale! :)



E.L.F. Mineral Foundation

Pros:

- I used it to set the cream foundation and it gave me a matte effect which I love.

- Smooth finish.

- Affordable. (399.75 pesos)

- It has SPF 15.


Cons:

Note about the 100% Mineral advertised by the product: Link Here

(Now I wonder if the "No Parabens, No Preservatives, No chemical dyes" claims are true.)

- It is stated that it is made in China but I don't understand why they need to cover it with a sticker to hide it. Is it because the item is really made from other country or they are ashamed that it is made in China? I really don't know.



Overall Rating: 5/10

Will I repurchase? No. I guess honesty is really important for me.
