Ecco Bella FlowerColor Natural Foundation SPF 15 Linen -- 1 fl oz
Favorite Affordable Natural Foundation
I've tried a lot of foundations and the Ecco Bella FlowerColor is my one of my all-time favorites, and by far my favorite for an affordable natural foundation. It provides a nice medium coverage, goes on smooth (especially with a Beauty Blender) and gives you a nice glow-y finish. Whenever I wear this foundation I get tons of compliments on my skin.
I have olive skin that tans and fades, so I wear the Natural color in the winter when I'm pale, and the Linen in the summer when I have some color.
The only foundation I like better is Arbonne's Perfecting Liquid Foundation, but it is literally twice the price.

Nice feel, Good coverage, Wrong shade for me
Firstly I'd like to state-like other customers before me- that Vitacost really needs to swatch or provide pictures of the shades of the cosmetics! I had to rely on other reviewers for tips before ordering.
Product: It has a nice feel, smooth and moisturizing from the glycerin and aloe. A little goes a long way and it can dry quickly, so apply sparingly and add more as you go or work quickly!
Shade: I purchased Linen because according to other reviewers, Natural is light for some people with medium skin and Linen is dark for some people with medium skin. With warm weather approaching, I chose Linen because I tan easily. I have medium Asian skin with yellow/orange undertones. However, Ecco Bella chooses to formulate their colors neutrally and it looked dark on me. It wouldn't have mattered if it looked warmer because I often wear bronzer, but it gave a dark (think gloomy) cast to my skin. To get an idea of my skin color, Bare Escentuals medium beige looks okay on my skin in terms of darkness/lightness but a little pink, golden medium is a very good match because they made it have more warm yellow tones, but can look really light when I'm tan. I'll try again and order Natural.

This foundation is great and completely natural. After trying numerous brands and seeing what their ingredients were I finally found this product. It had great natural ingredients and even has a natural sunscreen so it is all you need.

Little goes a very long way. I am olive skinned and went with natural foundation linen. Good match and will even be good for winter months. Feels light, not a heavy foundation. I have oily skin and it doesn't seem as oily as with the other foundations. I was a little disappointed when I saw how small it was. But it will still last me a good 6 months or so. Would recommend!

I really love this foundation. I’m very picky about natural ingredients and how foundation looks on me. Since I live in Florida and it can get very humid, I need a foundation that is light, yet it also enhances my skin. This foundation does both. I don’t want to see make-up smeared on my face. I love the way this looks. I also use this foundation on my eye lids as a primer to set my eye shadow and also under my eyes for dark circles.
