This foundation made me break out in horrible cystic acne! I already have acne prone skin but this foundation made it worse than ever. I never had such bad breakouts. I tried it several times, thinking maybe my breakouts were not caused by this product, only to find they really really were. After one wear I had so many cysts that I had to detox my face by not wearing any makeup and doing intense treatments for at least a week. This foundation is definitely going to the trash. It is not for oily/combo skin types either, it made me look like a grease ball in like half an hour.
One plus side is that it did match my skin tone perfectly, I had bought a shade darker than my normal color, and wore it several times in summer. Each time I wore it I was bronzed to a different degree, but it never looked like a mask on my face. It always matched.
So maybe it is going to be ok for you if you have dry-normal skin and no acne problem, I don't know.
I would say the coverage is sheer to medium. Wouldn't cover acne scars or anything. It is also reasonably priced and the packaging (mine came in a glass bottle with a pump) is useful.
it'a really good light-weight foundation. it has a powdery,satin finish which makes it appropriate for all skin types to use. it has a very liquidy consistency. it's really good at evening out your skin tone but it's probably not enough for covering serious skin imperfections. when you wear it it looks almost non-existant yet flawless. i have oily skin and i need to put some mattifying powder on my t-zone but its longetivity is good, it doesn't slide off your skin during the day when set with powder. as a conclusion buy it if you want a natural-looking medium coverage foundation. it's really affordable
I've been using this foundation for almost 4 years now, and I must say no matter how many foundations I try, I always come back to this one. It's cheap, it reminds me to the Mac Face&Body but it looks more matt and perfecting to me. It feels light and it didn't get me oilier that any other foundation. I even share this with my mom, and the tone that we have fits both of us as it sets amazing to your skin tone. I set it with a bit of Mac studio fix (any other powder will work if you have oily skin) and it lasts about 5h even in summer (I live in Madrid, so we have pretty hot summers).
I used to use it 2 years ago, but dumped it, and here are some reasons why.
-So, the first thing I'd like to mention about this foundation is that it's freaking SHINY. It looks awful. You can set it with a powder, whatever.
But the truth is that it doesn't really last long (3-4 hours) and tends to get super oily, especially on your t-zone.
-The coverage is light to medium, I would say, but it doesn't really cover any serious problems. It's like you're applying something pretty oily on your face, simply smudging it all over.
Of course, you can try to apply more and more of the product, but I wouldn't suggest that.
I like to use this foundation mixed with a dollop of moisturizer. It brightens my face and looks very natural, which is, of course, the desired effect.
It doesn't have a particularly great coverage but if you're looking for a product that will level out your skin tone and leave you with a gloriously satin smooth skin, look no further.
I don't usually wear foundation but when I DID by this one I bought it with the intention of wearing it for competitions and stuff like that.
I am not satified with the outcome, maybelline is usually a good line, but it's too runny, you shouldn't use it straight out of the tube, warm it up on the back of your hand.
The range is minimal (as it ususally is with drugstore lines), I bought nr 24 and it was too light even in my winter coating when I am at my pale state. I have combo skin with slightly oily forehead, AVOID if you are prone to dry skin. I started flaking around my mouth. This product only ALMOST work if you have oily skin.
This is not a bad foundation. I am happy with the coverage, it's light enough for me but yet when I have imperfections on my skin, it covers then well. I like the matte finish it has and the fact that it lasts really long. It doesn't make my skin oily. But what I hate about it the fact that the colors are way too limited and even the lightest color is still too dark for me and I can wear it only in summer. That's why I probably wouldn't buy it again and I would look for a color that matches my skin tone better.
This is a very foundation, and at least for me, a safe bet.
It blends with my skin tone really well and dries into a very nice finish. Coverage is medium and looks really natural. I haven't had any problems with it.
A very liquidish concistancy, which dries up into an matte finish. Easy to blend with (fingers go best) and an medium to high coverage. Does not break out my skin. Overall look is nice. Only thing some may be sensitive is the awful smell or the bottle/tube in which it's very hard to control on how much you want to get out from it (comes in literally a hole which lets out the foundation in large amount, unless you have quick reflexes).
my on the go foundation...
it is a marvelous textured liquid foundation that is perfect for blending with a stippling brush!!
it spreads evenly,no mess-no stress....my colour is Golden, a wonderful medium, yelow based shade that covers perfectly!!
it is definitive a medium cover foundation, very thin in consistency, very comfortable on the skin...it really kinda gives you airbrushed look, velvety skin and the shades are great for my NC 30 skin!!
I adore this drugstore foundation, it lasts for hours on my face, doesnt make my skin oily, and it is dirty cheap...
one of my 5 absoluteHG foundations!!
