I have purchased this a total of three times. The first time I thought I was purchasing the right color and it was 4-5 shades too dark, which was really surprising! The next time I purchased the lightest shade they make and it was perfect for me. I have very oily, acne prone skin and I like a medium to full coverage foundation. This does the trick for me! I use a nice thick moisturizer first, then I use a face primer and then I apply this foundation. I blend it out with a brush and then I apply my eye concealer and a magnifying powder as well, it keeps me matte all day and as long as I wash my face at night it doesn't break me out either! This is my go to foundation for a nice even full coverage.
I was very surprised by this product! In a good way! I bought it was it was on sale at the local drugstore. I wasn't expecting to find a match for my skin since I didn't really see a large amount of colour selection, but luckily I did. The texture is so smooth and blends easily. I dab it all over my face and blend it out with a flat top kabuki brush. I have combination skin and it gives me a nice, matte, clean finish. My skin looks flawless. It has a medium coverage. The only con is that it doesnt have lasting power as some other foundations do. But I love how it makes my face look once applied!
I love the way my skin looks with this foundation.
I recently purchased this product after allot of school friends told me about it. Due to my oily combination skin it didn't last long. I felt that this product slid off my skin and did not last long. On days that I had dry skin it left my skin looking cracked and flakey. I do not recommend this product. It is nothing like it was hyped up to be.
Ugh! This is the worst! It went on and stuck in every pore and didn't cover anything else. It looked like mucky mess of dead skin cells all over and I made certain I had no flakes by using a scrub prior. (I have combination skin) I don't have this problem with other foundations at all, so I took this back.
It was on overall average product, and definitely not worth the youtube hype. Living in the middle east I got this for around 25 usd, not as cheep as some make it out to be. While it does give a matte finish to the skin, it seemed to dry and harden my usually oily skin. I dont mind that but it began to look it as well. I also got it in the lightest color, 1 porcelain ivory which was too dark and I am a mere nw 15 in foundation and 20 in concealer.
I love the finish of this product it seriously look really good on me i have a lot of orange undertones so Carmel 2 was a perfect color match for me . But it does not last long at all it's can also make my face very oily and it will transfer badly .so I only use it when I'm going somewhere but won't be there for long but want to look flawless
I used this after it was recommended by numerous schoolmates, and I will never purchase it again. The mousse texture feels horrible on application and the coverage was patchy, and didn't last long at all. This product is a let-down on the Maybelline brand, as many of their other products are a much higher standard than this tub of crap.
I used this for actually a couple years! I'm fond of the product! It's very light-weight and blends into the skin with ease! I'd say it's best for a person with more oily skin (like myself). About a medium coverage. Didn't turn me orange or make me break out! The bad part is I felt it wore off earlier then I'd have liked. Overall a good product, though, especially for beginners.
I thought it would be a good alternative to heavy liquid foundations but sadly I was let down! It feels nice when you put your fingers in it but it felt so rough and dry on my face. Tremendous amount of caking up in my tzone even when I apply almost nothing. The packaging is cool and compact, but I wouldn't get it again.
