ELCIE MICRO SILQUE FOUNDATION

Categories Make-Up, Product Review

I must admit I am hesitant to buy this Elcie Micro Silque Foundation. I am normally skeptical of new makeup brands but what led me in buying this new makeup brand in the industry? Simple, After all its created by Lilit Caradanianmore commonly known as @MakeupByLilit to the beauty world. Lilit is an LA makeup artist who adores foundation and wears it better than anyone I’ve ever seen.

pxntswb8While haven’t seen any much of reviews online, I took a leap on buying these $45 bottle of foundation. My first dilemma is knowing what shade is suitable for me. Elcie Micro Silque Foundation comes in 12 shades. Yes you read it right 12 Shades.

Lilit wanted to create foundations that will suit all skin type, condition, and in all age group.

Starting from the left – Porcelain: NW13, Porcelain: NC15, Cameo: NC20, Cameo: NC 25, Vanilla: NC30, Sand: NC35, Sand: NC37, Warm Ivory: NC40, Natural: NC 42, Butterscotch: C4.5, Honey: C5, Warm Beige: NC44, Golden Tan: NW43, Almond: NW45, Chestnut: NC50

Back to my dilemma Should get the lightest or the second to the lightest? So I did more research, Lilit said that she formulated 12 shades that won’t give a hard time for her consumers to find a foundation shade that won’t turn pink for lighter tones and won’t turn orange for darker tones. So it means that their lightest shade won’t turn pink on me because I have fair neutral skin tone. But still I’m confused in getting the right shade. I am somewhat a mix of NC15 to NC 20 based on MAC cosmetics foundation shade range. I spun the wheel and decided to order the lightest shade – Porcelain NW13. Because it is easier to get away with a lighter shade that a dark shade that could end up looking like a bronzer.

REVIEW ELCIE MICRO SILQUE FOUNDATION

Application and Finish

Micro Silque liquid Foundation is very lightweight, a small amount goes a long way. The coverage is smooth, and gives a clean finish without looking cakey. For those that are familiar, it is quite similar to Make Up For Ever Face & Body but with a bit more coverage.

Freckles still noticeable even after 3 layers

Although, I was disappointed that it was not able to cover-up my freckles. I applied 3 layers but the freckles were still noticeable. FYI followed the recommended application procedure to put one layer, wait for 10 seconds then apply the next layer.

 

Longevity

I applied Elcie Micro Silque Foundation and finished it with MAC Studio fix powder NC20. I wore the it for 10 Hours without reapplying and it held on quite well. There are some oiliness but that is expected after wearing it for a long time and could easily be fixed by reapplying powder.

Holds well even after 10 hours of wearing
