Here's a photo by Elizabeth (well-known on Instagram as elojelloseropian) using the shade vanilla. She's on the right.

Warm Ivory
Leslie Alvarado posted a review on the foundation on her YouTube channel. I've been subscribed to her for awhile.. Love her videos!

She also posted a shade reference photo on her Instagram, which is very helpful!
Foundations that I wear❤️ I have normal/combination skin πŸ’† πŸ”Έ@elciecosmetics (natural ivory/natural) just bought this a couple of days ago! Still testing it out. Medium-full coverage and HD. Does oxidize, water resistant, long lasting and some transfer.Flawless application $45 πŸ”Έ@esteelauder #esteelauderdoublewear (cashew)- Amazing coverage, 15 hr wear! Medium-full coverage. Great for pictures and special occasions! Currently my go to foundation ! Noticed that it does oxidize. The longer you wear it the better the application in my opinion. $35-37 πŸ”Έ@maccosmetics #mineralizedmoisturefoundation (nc42)- this is very light, satin/dewy and an everyday foundation. Your natural skin still seeps through. Evens out your skin and has SPF 15! $35 πŸ”Έ@lorealparisusa (w7)- this is light to medium coverage. Has a very natural finish and is oil free! Contains vitamins A & C. This is my go to drugstore foundation. Does oxidize! For me its 4-6 hr wear. $7-10 #hudabeauty #selfiewithelcie #esteelauder #maccosmetics #loreal #lorealparis #elciecosmetics #foundations #nc42 #w7 #beautyblogger #vegas_nay #flawlessface

HER HAIR AND MAKEUP vs. MY POLISHED LOOK ON HER ❤️ | So this is the first time I get requested to give someone an "image consultation and make over". So we agreed she would come in as she would normally do her hair and makeup to go out and have fun. Then I would help her and teach her how to polish up her look AND POSTURE. I'm gonna say I actually enjoyed doing this and I'm actually open to do it more often, for a fee of course haha πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ˆ.| PRODUCTS:::: BROWS - @nyxcosmetics "tinted brow pomade" it's the most soft and not harsh version of MAC deep down and any other products like it. FOUNDATION - @elciecosmetics "Micro slique foundation" in the color Honey (it's so light weight and blends amazingly. It does set into a matte finish so you gotta work a bit faster. I used my fingers to apply this as it made it easier for me. I also asked her to let me know the longevity of the foundation, so I will get back to you guys on that. So far it worked great). EYES - @meltcosmetics "Dark Matter" palette and @stilacosmetics . Lashes -@berry_wendy in "Doll Face" . COUNTOUR AND HIGHLIGHT - @tomford "Shade and illuminate" ( guys once you try this you won't wanna use anything else. I am obsessed with it. If you live in the San Diego area or close by it hit up @mdl4tfbeauty at Neiman Marcus she will help you with anything Tom Ford ). LIPS - MAC pencil in strip down, lipstick in Peach stock and gloss in Saint Germaine. #makeupartist #danielmarrone #nyx #elciecosmetics #tomford #melt #meltcosmetics

  1. Hi, I'm confused with the Elcie shades and my complexion. I'm NC30 and I use the EX1 in F200 which matches perfectly my skintone. Which shade would suit me the most in Elcie foundation shades? Thanks

    1. I referred to one of their Instagram videos, where they swatch all the shades and give reference to MAC shades and NC30 would be shade "Honey." I can't tell you if it will match your skin perfectly though. I really wish it was available in-stores, so people can test it out because guessing a shade online isn't easy.
