Elle 18 Glow Foundation Review & Swatches

I have always been fond of Elle 18 products as they are pocket friendly with really good quality. Elle 18 is an Indian brand that is targeted towards young college girls and provides budget friendly products. Recently Elle 18 has launched new products and Elle 18 Glow Foundation is one of them. Today I am going to discuss my experience with Elle 18 Glow Foundation in shade Pearl.

Elle 18 says-
An every-day silky delicate texture foundation with SPF 8 and fragments of a gentle moisturizer that blends into your  skin to give a bright radiant finish and is available in 4 shades. The glow foundation is your instant beauty fix right before your class presentation, college fest or even a simple party in the evening. 

MBT says-
Elle 18 Glow Foundation comes in a sturdy, glossy black plastic tube with a black screw top lid. The shade name is printed at the back of the tube. The lid is quite tight and the tube can be easily carried around in a makeup bag without any fear of leakage or spillage. The packaging is attractive, girlie and quite chic. The scent of the foundation is mild and pleasant and won’t bother sensitive noses.

The texture of the foundation is soft and smooth with perfect consistency. It is neither very thick nor very thin. It does not come gushing out of the tube wile pouring out. I just need to squeeze the tube a bit. I always use my finger tips to apply foundation. Before applying this foundation, you must moisturize your face well else it would look patchy and dry on your skin. It blends really well on a moisturized skin without being patchy or cakey. It provides sheer, slightly dewy (true to the company’s claim) and flawless finish. It feels soft, smooth and silky on my skin. It gets blended into the skin well without making your face look like a plastered one.

The foundation gives sheer coverage. It does reduce the redness and cover up very minor flaws but if you have major blemishes then you do need a good concealer. I always make sure to set it with a powder. The staying power is pretty average. It stays put on my combination skin for a good 3-4 hours after that it makes my T-zone shiny. It does transfer onto my cell phones, white collar etc when it quite hot. It does not tend to settle into pores and looks smooth on skin. It is easy to remove with a makeup wipe or remover. It works well on my sensitive skin and doesn't break me out. It photographs well and does not give a white cast though it contains SPF 8.

Elle 18 Glow Foundation comes in 4 shades- Pearl, Coral, Marble and Shell. I got Pearl which suits my fair skin tone perfectly well and gives me a lovely, natural look. It makes my skin look soft, smooth and even. The scent lingers with me for few hours before fading away. I love using this foundation during day as it is quite light and looks natural on me.

It comes in four shades so there is a shade for every skin tone. Although it is sheer, it does cover up minor flaws and redness. If you want budget friendly foundation with good results then I would definitely recommend it you.
