Acne Fighting Foundation is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 1453.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you forget it’s there have no fear I discovered this about 18 months ago because I kept falling asleep in my foundation and my skin would just be horrible the next morning. This is the only foundation I have ever used where if you fall asleep or forget to wash it off it doesn’t damage your skin or clog your pores. It’s acne fighting so I almost think of it as a mask. Will continue to buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I use this everyday for work and I’m a flight attendant. It lasts all day and only need to touch up my nose and chin with powder after a long day of work; before I head out. Tons of compliments on how it blends. I use a brush to put this on. Small pea size amount does my whole face. It’s one of my favourite elf products. I use the porcelain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! I bought this foundation online about a month ago having never tried it before. I'm 32 and still struggle with temperamental skin, and I have spent more money than I would like to admit on products with salicylic acid. I was impressed with this foundation in every way. Simply as a foundation, the color, coverage, and texture were spot on, exactly what I was looking for. It doesn't take much to get great coverage, and it blends well. It feels light -- not greasy or heavy at all. It's a bit more matte, which is what I prefer (I live in hot, humid Florida, so I'm "dewy" whether I want to be or not). Add onto that the addition of the salicylic acid, at E.L.F. prices, and I won't be wasting my money by shopping anywhere else again. Awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I bought this foundation because I have been starting to break out from the place I work at. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical because I have tried so many “high-end” products that cost wayyy more, but did not help my skin. I was super impressed with the quality and the way it looked after applied! I’ve been using it for a few days now and already notice a difference in my complexion. Thankyou e.l.f. for an amazing foundation, please never ever discontinue!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I love this foundation. I have used it for YEARS. I am super oily and though it doesn't control my oil too well, it is way better for oily skin than the Flawless Foundation(please come out with a matte foundation!!!) I love the finish and this is a go-to for me. Please don't ever discontinue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genuinely impressed This is my first time ever writing a review but it is 100% needed. I have tried SO many high end expensive foundations and NONE of them can even compare to this one. The fact that it's so inexpensive is even better. It gives me such a perfect glow and amazing coverage. 10/10 would recommend to everybody. They do need more shade ranges though but I'm happy porcelain fit me just right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too dark Porcelain was to too dark, I have to mix it with my concealer to try and match and it still comes our dark even if I blend down my neck, would say it more medium coverage. But doesn't seem to last on my face, if you get oily throughout the day don't know if this would work the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation! So I just recieved this foundation and this is my second time using it, I'm pretty impressed! I have other high end foundations that don't cover as well as this one. A little bit covers all of my face, and I don't have to touch up with concealer, I have to do that with most of my other foundations. I've tried so many foundations but I think I've finally found my holy grail! Also it doesn't break me out which is a bonus! I got the shade buff, I read the lightest shade was too orange and the beige seemed like it would be too dark for my skin. I think the buff matches me pretty well.

I use Maybelline super stay 24hr full coverage foundation and concealer in Caramel. The swatch is elf shows suede in flawless finish foundation and coffee in acne fighting foundation both of which seem too dark for my skin. Suggest apt foundation please.

Asked by: Van19x
We apologize for any confusion. The Acne Fighting Foundation does not have a wide variety of shades, however we would suggest that you try the Virtual Try On Feature. We think that Buff would be a better shade match for you.

Asked by: Angelica127
We apologize, we do try to be as accurate as possible with swatches. Please note that the swatch shows the payofff, or how the product will appear when applied to the skin.

I want to get this for my little sisters, they both have such AWFUL acne and they get self conscious about it, but one of them has dry skin. Would this bother dry skin or do you think she'd be able to wear it?

Asked by: Casper9
They may both wear the product. We suggest that the sister with dry skin use an appropriate moisturizer or primer before applying. We also suggest our Acne Fighting Spot Gel to help their complexions.

What's the shade for me if I use alabaster with peach undertone?

Asked by: Kellyn
We apologize, the lightest shade available in the Acne Fighting Foundation is Porcelain, which still may be too dark for you. Our innovation team is aware of the many requests for a wider shade range for this amazing product, so please stay tuned for updates.
