ELF review: Mineral foundation, day 4!

Hello sweeties, how are you? I'm fine and ready to talk to you about the mineral foundation by e.l.f. cosmetics.
I bought this foundation online, for £3.50 (or4.13 or $5.42). It comes in a small, round shaped package and it contains 0.1oz (2.84g), if I am not mistaken. You know the foundation, it has small holes on the first layer so the powder can come out easily. I had a problem trying to find out how that works (haha ok I am clumsy and a beginner, don't judge me!) and after a few hours minutes, I did it! Yay for opening the package!

I chose the fair shade, as my skin is pretty light and pale sometimes, so anything darker would look too strange and weird on me. At first I used this foundation in a small amount and I applied it with a brush that is good for a blush too. Something like this: (the hair is not flat
And the result was not that good! I didn't see much coverage and actually, I couldn't see any difference on my face. Just a shade of a matte finishing instead of my oily face. Then, one friend suggested me to use a flat brush, and because I don't have any this time, I just used a smaller brush and the difference was not big. The coverage was kind of better, but still not what I expected. However, after some more attempts, I got used to it and when I use a good concealer (my all time favourite: Estee Lauder, review *here*) and e.l.f. mineral foundation, the result is: good coverage, matte finishing and light looking.
However, this product doesn't have good reviews. Most people I see are not satisfied and the shade of the product was not the right one for them, i.e. for the fair one they say it has some orange shades. It works for me though.
All and all, I didn't like this product that much, but after a while I got used to it and found out my personal tricks that work. If you have pimples now and then or freckles, like me, it will not work on its own. That's what I think.

Pros
*Cheap
*Not tested on animals
*Matte finishing
*Adequate content
*Light
*Works when combined with a good concealer

Cons
*Not good coverage
*Many complain about the shades
*Not working well without a concealer
*Not working well on pimples

Rate:2.5/5
Buy it again: Probably not!
