Elle 18 Glow Foundation Review and Swatches

Hello Beauties,
I am a foundation junkie and I love foundations that can give matte look to my skin with brightness. I am always in the search for a good foundation that can gives a matte look. Well I have a long story about it and if I start it here you all will fell asleep :p. In the meantime I got this Elle 18 Glow Foundation Shell Shade for review. Glow foundation and my matte look desire!!! yeah it sounds totally different. Let see the review for more details...

???

My Experience with Elle 18 Glow Foundation Shell Shade:
Packaging:

Elle 18 Glow Foundation comes in a long black tube with screw lid. It is very compact and can be carry with you anywhere, ofcourse travel friendly.

Shade, Smell & Texture:

I got shell shade for review, but it is bit darker than my skin tone. The smell is exactly same to same Lakme foundations smell. The texture of the foundation is fine yellowish cream, neither thick nor runny. 

My Take:
I found this foundation is more or less similar to lakme foundation creams. This shade is bit darker than my skin tone, but I didn't find any major difference when I applied it on my face. It looks so natural aftre blending. This foundation brighten the face immediately after applying and hides minor flaws like my recent brown acne marks and slight dark circle (I got it recently because of continuous sickness). Thi Elle 18 glow foundation even out the face very well.
You can blend this foundation in minutes, it blends on the skin very easily. This is monsoon to winter whether, so I didn't found any oiliness for 3 to 4 hours after setting my face with compact powder. My face stayed very fresh for good time. Later, my face started to show tint of glow on my cheeks, forehead and nose. For this foundation doesn't need any moisture base, as it is smooth in texture and easily blends on the skin. 

I found this foundation is best for daily use and very budget friendly too. For oily skin this may not be suitable during summer. It gives a semi dewy finish as they said with a tint of glow.

My Like with Elle 18 Glow Foundation Shell Shade:
  • Easily available.
  • Budget Friendly.
  • Travel Friendly.
  • Four shades available to choose.
  • Best for normal, dry and combination skin for all seasons.
  • Easily blends on the skin.
  • Smooth texture.
  • It didn't cause any breakouts for my sensitive skin.
  • Hides minor flaws and brightens the skin immediately.
  • Sheer(light) to medium coverage.
  • Best for daily use.
  • I didn't found any cakey appearance.
  • Give natural finish.
My Dislikes with Elle 18 Glow Foundation Shell Shade:
  • Not for oily skin in summer.
  • Who wants more coverage may not find this foundation useful.
  • Ingredients???
Final Verdict:
Elle 18 Glow Foundation is a good foundation for daily use who needs light to medium coverage with natural look. When compared with it's price i can not complain about it more and it will be very great foundation for college girls. 

Hope My Review is useful for you all,
Thanks and please share your thoughts...
With Love Radha
