I purchased the porcelain ivory, I'm pretty pale and I usually have a hard time finding a color that doesn't make it look so obvious I have foundation on. This is definitely light coverage which is great because I use a bb cream for all over my face and use this for cheeks, nose, and chin and it works perfectly! It's so smooth and completely blends into the rest of my face. I love it!
Honestly, i bought this out of desperation and crossed my fingers it would work because i ran out of my mac liquid foundation and they didn't have the color i needed at my local mac store.
I was really suprised and happy with it. I don't even use the mac one anymore which i always thought had way too strong a smell. This is good for some lightweight coverage. If you're trying to cover up some serious issues, i'd say go for something else. This is great when you use a little just to even everything out, it looks really natural too which i love. I usually pair it with my mac powder and am satisfied.
The only downside to this is that if it's super humid outside, it'll amplify the grease and shine on your face if you put too much on and you'll totally need to re-apply powder or use an oil wipe. My skin type is normal though so it's not too bad for me. I wouldn't suggest this product for people with oily skin.
It's a great cheaper alternative that lasts a long time. I've been on the same bottle for about 6 months now.
I loveeeeeee Maybelline foundations, they are absolutely amazing.
This foundation is no different, its very lightweight and for me its more of a medium-full coverage.
Its fluffy whipped texture makes it really easy to apply and blend, and the colors are just as good. HOWEVER i don't think these foundations have a huge range, so buy two if need be and mix them for your shade..
I'm NC37-40 in Mac and i can wear Pure Beige and Natural beige.
Its so light weight and great for a night out. If you have dry skin like me, i suggest wearing moisturizer before. A skin spray like skindinavia is good too, but get the dewey one. I think its a bit too matte for me, i prefer the luminous look, but i overdose on highlight.
This covers my pores and leave my Witt a semi- flawless finish. But I only use it a few times because I borrow it from my mother. I try not to use this too much because I feel like it will cause me to break out since it seeps into my pores.
Normally, I tend to stay away from Maybelline because their color selection isn't that broad for my shade and tends to make my face look like an ashen oil slick. Buut I desperately needed a new lightweight foundation for the summer. I usually use Revlon Colorstay in Mocha but it makes me look extremely shiny if I'm out in the heat for too long. Since I live in Texas, that needed to be fixed real quick! Revlon didn't really have any water based foundations in my shade and Covergirl is waay too unreliable, so I turned to this foundation.I found it on sale at HEB, yet again, for $6 with a coupon and got in the Cocoa Dark 3 shade. Man am I glad that I bought this! I used Rimmel's Fix and Perfect primer under it and dusted some Black Radiance pressed powder on top. It got me through 6 hours of heat, humidity, and a little bit of sweat. I will admit, after about 3 hours, I did get a tiny bit of shine on my T-zone. But it was more of a dewy shine so it wasn't that bad. If you like that effect, then you'll be okay. If not, a little blotting paper and a tiny bit of powder will take care of it.. All in all, the effect was flawless and the price was perfect for my flat college student pockets.
Okay, first off I have to say BEFORE I BUY ANNNYYY MAKEUP I ALWAYS check its reviews first, but surprisingly I bought this product on a whim at Walmart. After purchasing I decided to read all of the reviews and no doubt about 75% of them were negative. I honestly have to disagree with that 75% because this product is amazing. All u need is a good setting powder (I use cover girl) and it should stay in place for hours. My skin looks legit airbrushed. Most deff repurchasing.
I have had this product for a while now and haven't used it much, because it wasn't a raved about foundation. Naturally I went and tried the most loved drugstore products like the Revlon Colorstay Foundation. This stuff is honestly 10 times better than Revlon Colorstay. Revlon Colorstay doesn't have a pump, and this Dream Mouse does. I have dry/dehydrated skin, and my face tends to look cracked. This stuff blends in perfectly with my skin. I actually look Airbrushed. This is my favorite drugstore foundation. Feels good on your skin, looks AMAZING, lasts long enough.
Don't pass this up just because every beauty guru isn't raving about it. Give it a chance.
This stuff can work for a lot of people. You look airbrushed, but also natural if that makes sense. When wearing this with minimal makeup you just look like you have amazing skin. The coverage is good, but not like Double Wear full ultra matte stage makeup, and that is why it looks somewhat natural.
GO BUY THIS.
I have purchased two bottles of this trying to get a good tone, but one I have is too yellow (medium sandy beige) and the other makes my skin look slightly red (medium pure beige) and looks cakey yet the coverage isnt great if you have acne or redness and doesnt stay matte for long. I dont like this product, and wonder why so many people use and buy it when I think that a BB cream looks much nicer and has just as good coverage as this.
I used this foundation for about 6 months, and I absolutely loved it. I have very light skin with a few noticeable acne scars and light red blemishes. This foundation did an excellent job of covering them up, and it didn't cause me to break out anymore. It has no fragrance, which I love (I hate fragrances in makeup!). It feels a little greasy in my fingers, but once it's applied and smoothed out, it gives a nice, medium coverage, dewy look.
Now, the bad:
It's necessary that I exfoliate before I put it on, or else it makes the dry patches on my skin very visible. This doesn't bother me too much, but it might not be very wise to exfoliate your face everyday. So, this might not be a good day-to-day foundation for some.
Also, it looks a little orange-y on my skin (This is why I wouldn't buy again). Though I'm quite fair, I have yellow pigments in my skin, and prefer to find foundations with more pink pigments to balance it out.
Lastly, if you do not blend it well enough, there will be noticeable makeup lines. I have to be sure to blend it down my neck so I don't get a solid orange-y line down my jawline.
Nice velvety feel on skin, dewey finish, not cakey, great coverage.
Orangey pigments, makes dry patches visible, difficult to blend
I have been using this now for almost 3 months and have been really happy with the results. This comes in a convenient pump top bottle and it is transparent so you can see when you are starting to run low. I like the way it dispenses and can get get just the right amount for my entire face in 2 or 3 pumps. I have light 3.5 in Nude Beige. this is a perfect match for my fair skin and it has good coverage without looking like stage make up. I can still see my freckles if I use 2 pumps and work quickly to thin this out, otherwise 3 gives me a little more coverage and still looks natural, dewy, and moist. This feels light, spreads evenly and doesn't streak and blends well. I am so impressed with how well this works for me. It doesn't feel drying or tight once it sets and it doesn't rub off on everything that touches your face. It stays on and stays put all day and I am definitely planning on buying more of this when it runs out.
