I have been using the ELF Acne Fighting Foundation on and off for a while and decided that it was time I did a Foundation Friday video on this cruelty-free foundation. I have always received compliments when wearing it on camera and really wanted to put it to the test and show you a full days wear of the ELF Acne Fighting Foundation.
In this video, I show how this cruelty-free foundation applies with a beauty sponge and a makeup brush, as well as how it wears throughout the day.

The Verdict: The ELF Acne Fighting Foundation is a great budget-friendly full coverage cruelty-free foundation. While there aren’t a lot of shades available, mixing and matching from the shades that are sold can accommodate most light to medium skin tones. This foundation applies evenly and smoothly. While it does oxidize a bit after application, it doesn’t appear to continue to do so throughout the day. It gives full coverage with a natural finish that looks great throughout the day.
