Rinse your face with water and then apply dry cloth to soak the water from skin. Now, you are ready to apply the foundation. You can use cleansing milk for removing the foundation. Rinse your face with water after that.
I will start with packaging, as I think that it is worth to be mentioned for Elle 18 Glow Foundation. Packaging looks very interesting and girly. I love the illustration of girl on the product. Furthermore, rich magenta, combined with black base, is giving a classy finish to appearance of this product.
To be honest, Elle 18 is a mid-range makeup brand. If you have budget issues, it is one of the best low budget makeup brand option for you. So, I was a little skeptic about the quality with the foundation from Elle 18, at the time of buying.
When I applied Elle 18 Glow Foundation on my skin, it added glowing effects, though the glow was not natural to be honest. However, the good thing is that after few minutes the artificial glow gradually disappeared. It gives matte finish to the skin – makes skin to look smooth. It covers skin imperfections quite nicely.
I’m quite satisfied with Elle 18 Glow Foundation. But, the major concern is its impact over my skin. If you allow the foundation to stay on your skin for long time, it tends to harm natural moist and softness of your skin. Hence, it is not the best product for regular usage.
It retails for Rs.150 for 30 grams of the product.
Coral, Mable, Pearl and Shell.
* Adds glow to the skin.
* Hides skin imperfections – patch marks.
* Nice creative packaging.
* Has negative effects on the skin.
* After applying, initially makes skin texture uneven and glow looks artificial.
I have to conclude that Elle 18 Glow Foundation is a good mid-range product, but far being a competitor to the other brands, like Lakme, Revlon, etc.
Shall I Buy It Again?
Well, honestly, I would not go for it again. I have not found it to be satisfactory enough! I may go for it, in case of budget constraints.

After few hours of application it looks patchy on dry areas of the face. It Stays long for about 2-3 hours. It is not very expensive so its budget friendly. The packaging is a small tube like so its travel friendly as well. The foundation is not waterproof a major drawback. Since it is cheap so there are major drawbacks but as a beginner girls you can start with this product.
