NELF USA HD Foundation Review & Swatches

(Last Updated On: March 20, 2020)

Hello beautiful, Today I am going to talk about NELF USA HD Foundation and my experiences with it. I got this product in my February FAB BAG. There was an option to choose between NELF primers and foundations, I picked the foundation. NELF Cosmetics are quite popular these days, and this was my first product from NELF after that I got NELF Eyeliner in my March FAB BAG. Back to NELF HD foundation review, continue reading below:

So, the overall packaging quality is really good. The foundation bottle has stickers on it which has all the important details about the product. Additionally, there is a shade number sticker on the top of the bottle.

Smell: It has no fragrance.

Swatch: See the swatches below:

My Experience: As I already stated earlier, I found this NELF USA HD foundation inside my February FAB BAG. When I first saw this, I really liked the packaging of this product, it looks really classy and expensive. Though, it is not that expensive but the quality of the packaging is really good.

The pump dispenser saves a lot of wastage. You just need to pump once to get the exact amount of foundation that will cover your face and neck which means the product will last longer.

I had 3 shades to choose from, I chose 03 HD Neutral Rose and this is not my shade. I have a warm skin tone and I thought this shade would go with my skin because it looked warm in pictures but it is a pinkish shade.

Unluckily, there were no shade swatches anywhere on the internet which made me choose the wrong shade. I think shade 01 was perfect for my skin tone as shade 02 is for darker skin and shade 03 is for cool skin tones.

Anyways, let’s talk about the foundation. I really like the coverage it provides. It is actually oil-free and lasts for about 6-7 hours without smudging. Along with that, it is waterproof and light weight. It gives a shimmery matte finish and it doesn’t transfer to objects. Undoubtedly, NELF USA HD foundation is a great product.

Texture & Formula: The texture of the foundation is between thick and runny which is perfect as it blends easily to give a flawless matte finish. It has a light weight formula which makes you feel like you are not wearing any makeup.

Coverage: Foundations are made for coverage and this foundation does it perfectly. It blends nicely with the skin and gives a great coverage.

Stay: It stays for about 6-7 hours.

How to use: I take out the foundation on the back side of my hand and apply dots all over my face and neck. Then I use my beauty blender and dab the foundation dots all over to blend it nicely.

Shade Selection: NELF USA HD foundation comes in only 3 shades, so, the shade selection is not that hard (which I thought). Anyways, I want you all to select the right shade for your skin tone. So, shade 01 is for girls with fair and warm skin tones, shade 02 is for dark skin tones and shade 03 is for girls with wheatish-cool skin tones.

Obviously, there is no variety in shades. More brands are expanding their shade range, so I do suggest NELF to do the same.
