Elf Essentials Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Honey

Best Blogger Tips

What the Label Says

SPF 15 formula helps combat premature aging and protects against sun damage while leaving skin radiant and lightly hydrated.

Comes in 7 shades: Ivory, Light Beige, Apricot Beige, Rosy Beige, Honey, Spice & Toffee (lightest to darkest)
0.42oz (12g)

$ 1.50 at ELF US
 P 150.00 at ELF counters in major department stores


I am NC35 for reference and i find that Honey is a bit too yellow & dark for me. Rosy or Apricot Beige is probably a better alternative for those in the NC30-35 range.

The Good
- feels lighweight to the skin
- blends well and very easy to apply
- has SPF 15, which is a must for me when it comes to moisturizers
- moisturizes well and offers light coverage
- leaves a natural looking, dewy finish to the skin
- very affordable

The Bad
- coverage is too light for my liking, on the coverage scale of 1-5, this would be a 1.5
- doesn't cover up minor blemishes on the face
- the weird scent bothers me (i have very sensitive nose)
- does not stay on for too long, about 2-3 hrs max 

Who Might Like This
- people who want a hint of color and coverage on their moisturizer
- great for casual, everyday use, or for those days when you're too lazy to put on makeup
- people not very fond of wearing makeup but still want a tiny bit of coverage

Final Verdict

Will I Repurchase?
The strong scent really bothers me and I still find myself always going back to my Missha Perfect Cover.
