Update: elf Flawless Finish Foundation
Sep. 13, 2019Leave a comment
Here’s an update on elf Flawless Finish Foundation. I’ve used this foundation for about 1 month on and off. The first shade I used was called Lily (fairest fair with yellow undertones). I’m not using it anymore. It makes my skin too yellow. I’m currently using Swan (fairest fair with peach undertones). I really wanted to try Pearl (fairest fair with neutral undertones). That’s if I’ll ever get to that point. haha. Let’s begin this updated review! 🙂
Shade: The elf Flawless Finish Foundation has a lot of shades to choose from. That’s awesome. You’re not stuck with 5 shades like the elf Acne Fighting Foundation collection.
Texture: This liquid foundation is lightweight. It feels like your typical liquid foundation. It’s not thick.
Finish: It is semi-matte. It gave my skin a dewy appearance. Some people might like that, but I have oily skin. It just looks like my skin produced more oil.
Coverage: I would love to say that it’s light-moderate or full coverage. It’s not. It’s has light coverage. I had to use more product to move up to moderate coverage, and that didn’t work as I hoped for. Even with a makeup primer.
Fragrance: It has a subtle fragrance. Take it or leave it.
Breakouts?: I haven’t noticed any.
- After using the elf Acne Fighting Foundation, elf Flawless Finish Foundation isn’t as great anymore. There’s no to little coverage when it comes to this foundation. I am getting tired of layering more and more foundation onto my skin. The color is decent, but I feel like I have to use more product than I should.
- There’s no SPF. I would like a foundation that contains SPF. I wear sunblock underneath my foundation, but I still want that extra layer of SPF on my skin.
- It’s cool that it’s only $6, but it’s not living up to my expectations. I think this is why I like BB Creams. They’re an all in one type of product, and it’s better to have something like that than just a foundation for coverage alone. I felt like I was missing out wearing a basic foundation without the extra benefits. BB Creams usually contain SPF too. I’ll be on the search for a new BB Cream to try. Boy, my love for BB Creams are coming back. It was going to happen sooner or later. :]
- I think this is the last time I’m going to purchase elf Flawless Finish Foundation. Love the price. It’ not for me. I need more punches to my foundation if it’s going to sit on my skin.
Those are my thoughts. Leave your own thoughts on the elf Flawless Finish Foundation in the comment section. 🙂

Garden of Life & Raw Rev Protein Bars

I have more protein bars to share!
- Garden of Life Organic Fit High Protein Weight Loss Bar (Chocolate Covered Cherry)
- Raw Rev Glo (Mixed Nuts, Caramel & Sea Salt)
Garden of Life Organic Fit High Protein Weight Loss Bar (Chocolate Covered Cherry)
I’ve tried Garden of Life High Protein Weight Loss Bar before. At one point, I was addicted to them, haha. This time, I have Chocolate Covered Cherry. It’s a new flavor to me. This is what I think about it.
These are the blandest protein bars out there. They don’t taste like what it’s called Chocolate Covered Cherry. Just a hint of that flavor. It’s barely there. They are soft in texture. Somewhat similar to a brownie, which I like. Even though they are bland, I really do like these. They make a satisfying treat that’s low in sugar. There’s only 1 gram of sugar (0 grams of added sugar) per bar. That’s why these protein bars are tasteless. Each bar contains 200 calories with 14 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber.
Do I recommend these? Once again, they are satisfying. I do enjoy having them early in the morning with my breakfast or alone. Since they contain Green Coffee Bean Extract, it wakes me up quickly. But, I realize that I am very sensitive to caffeine. I get really hyper when I consume caffeine, lol. That’s why I don’t drink coffee with caffeine as much anymore. I choose decaf whenever possible. These protein bars (to me) are very addicting due to the caffeine in it, so I only purchase them once after a couple of months for a nice low sugar, high protein snack. Yes, I would recommend them if you can handle a snack that’s bland.
Organic soluble tapioca fiber‚ organic vegetable glycerin‚ organic pea protein‚ organic almonds‚ organic chocolate coating (organic cacao nibs‚ organic erythritol‚ organic tapioca fiber‚ organic cocoa butter‚ natural licorice flavor‚ organic stevia extract (leaf)‚ organic sunflower lecithin‚ organic vanilla bean extract)‚ organic pea crisps (organic pea protein‚ organic starch)‚ organic sprouted brown rice protein‚ organic cacao‚ organic acacia fiber‚ organic tart cherry‚ organic carob‚ organic flavor‚ organic svetol® green coffee bean extract‚ organic ashwagandha‚ sea salt‚ organic cinnamon.
Raw Rev Glo (Mixed Nuts, Caramel & Sea Salt)
Remember Raw Rev Glo Protein Bars? One of my favorite flavors is Mixed Nuts, Caramel, & Sea Salt. This is what I think about them now.
I still feel the same way as I did before in my last review. It’s healthy and tasty at the same time. It’s filling too. This protein bar makes it feel like I’m eating a candy bar. I would definitely purchase these again soon. 🙂
Raw Rev Nutty Superfood Blend (raw cashews, peanuts, raw almonds, pea protein, organic brown rice protein, raw organic hemp protein, raw organic virgin coconut oil, raw organic chia seeds, raw organic sprouted flax seeds) isomalto-oligosaccharides (prebiotic fiber from tapioca), organic Italian dark chocolate chips (cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), pea protein crisps, natural flavors, organic brown rice syrup, sea salt.
