e.l.f. Mineral Foundation

Contents: 0.10oz
Shade: Fair
Price: HK$105

According to e.l.f.'s webpage:

Our weightless mineral foundation will help get you on your way to healthier illuminating skin. All our powders blend naturally into the skin, and are so light that they work with your skin color to create a perfect color match. All of our foundations contain sun protection factor (spf) 15 and are 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.

Shake the Mineral Foundation - SPF15 back and forth to get excess powder loose into the tray. Gently glide over the powder with a Total FAce Brush to grab the powder, bring your brush to the cap to work in the powder to the brush, then tap off any excess. Apply to areas of the face that need coverage by working into the skin in a circular motion.

Active ingredients: Zinc Oxide 15%, Titanium Dioxide 10%
Inactive ingredients: Mica, Bismuth Oxycholride, Titanium Dioxide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Boron Nitride. May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007)

My Opinion:

I've initially got this in light, but noticed that it turns darker after wearing it for about half an hour. I went back to the store and got this in Fair, which was slightly too light. I end up mixing the 2 together and it works.

I haven't been using this for too long because I prefer minerals during the summer, but it appears to be a decent mineral powder, and imo, definetly better than maybelline. Although this product does contains Bismuth, I'd never had any problems, but for those of you who are allergic to Bismuth, please beware.

我最初買了light, 但用了這個粉底約一小時後便發現會便深色, 所以我再買了一瓶fair, 可惜又太淺色, 最終將兩瓶混合就ok.

我比較喜歡於夏天使用礦物粉, 所以其實只便用過這瓶粉底數次,未能提供詳盡的用後感(遲些再會update), 但暫時都覺得ok, 起碼好過Maybelline礦物粉. 雖然成份中有Bismuth, 但對並沒有任何影響, 但對Bismuth有過敏的人記得要小心.


  1. Where did you buy the e.l.f products in HK? I wanna buy it too

  2. I didn't get these in HK, I got them in Macao

  3. I really like this foundation. When I first applied it, I noticed that it is sheer in coverage and somehow invisible on my skin. This High Definition Mineral Foundation is a silky, lightweight foundation made from pure minerals with all the benefits of a skincare treatment. The soft-matte formula is infused with minerals, vitamins and deep sea water. Glides onto your skin for perfect coverage, and evens out your complexion while allowing your skin to breathe. Continued use will make your skin smoother and clearer, even when you're not wearing foundation! Thanks for nice information.
