I'll get the cons out of the way first,only one...the dispenser (packaging, whatever), I hate that no matter how well you shake it, there's always a bit flying off somewhere--onto my clothes, the shower curtain (which is quite a distance away!), my hair...sigh, you get the idea. It may be user error, I admit If anyone has found a way to dispense this stuff w/out it spitting, please let me know. Anyway, I do like this product. I love how it feels very light, covers just enough, can be built up to med coverage. A perfect Summer foundation, IMO.
I really enjoy this foundation. I will definitely say if you are looking for a heavier coverage foundation, this is not for you. I have a few problem areas (redness, acne) and for the most part it does cover it. I do use concealer over in some places though as needed. I love the fact that this is extremely lightweight, and I don't need to worry about it looking cakey. Be careful about some of the shades looking orange. The shade I have is 240 Natural Beige and it is the perfect shade for me while I am tan. I apply it with my hand, and while it does come out slightly orange, it adjusts just right on my face and does not look orange. Also to help with that I use a lighter shade of powder over it. I have extremely oily skin, and while I still get oily, this is the best foundation I have used that helps control that. One of the complaints I have with this is when you first open it, it comes out straight up white. I was disappointed because while it did state that on the packaging, I feel like some of the product was wasted. Which also leads me to being careful when dispensing the product, it is super easy to dispense more than you need, but if that happens just use it where you need extra coverage :) Definitely recommend for lightweight coverage, and for oily skins! :)
I love playing with makeup and switching things up so I figured I'd try this on a whim. I hadn't seen the commercials or anything, just came across it in the drugstore and decided to give it a go....so I wasn't sure what to expect--like, does it spray on or what???
Anyways, you shake it up and spray a clump onto the back of your hand. It comes out kinda like mousse like for your hair. The color is pretty light and deceiving--it goes on darker. I use a flat, teardrop shaped sponge(damp) to dab it on where I need coverage, and kind of blend it out. This doesn't cover very well, but it does give the skin a really nice feel. Once it dries though, if you apply a dusting of powder to set it, your skin looks luminous and natural not artificial at all. It doesn't cover entirely well, which is I guess the point of HD makeups--so it doesn't look completely fake on-camera...but for those of us not on-camera, it doesn't do a whole lot if your complexion isn't great to start with. I conceal, highlight and correct before applying and just dab this over. Once set though, it does give your skin a very smooth appearance and a very natural look. The colors though are a bit unnatural and look kinda freaky. I used the second to lightest and it goes on a little dark, clings to the skin so it doesn't blend thoroughly...but a little careful application with a sponge evens it out nicely.
I like that it's light weight for summer, and it does give my sadly-pale skin a nice bit of glow. And so far, no breakouts and my skin feels very nice with it on. Oh, and when you rinse it off at night, your skin does feel much nicer than when you wear heavier foundations or even the MMU's...It's got some kind of skin benefits to it so that's a plus.
The only downside I can see are the colors being unnatural, but they do blend out to something resembling human skin.lol And you really do need to set it with powder in order for it to actually work right.
Not too expensive and the spray-mousse type bottle is kinda kitchy so I'd def buy this again. Hope they work on the colors though for the future because nobody I know is naturally any of the colors they have....
This foundation is a JOKE.
Firstly the packaging uses aerosol and the lightest tap dispenses too much foundation.
It comes out as a very thick looking mouse.
I tried two methods of putting this on.
1. Popping the bubbles and applying it as a liquid, this make is easy to blend, but I may as well have been applying water to my face, there is no coverage, none, even if you're looking for sheer coverage you will be disappointed, this does nothing for evening out skin tone. As for lasting powder, frankly I couldn't tell whether I still had it on or not. It's awful.
2. I tried using a brush and applying it while it still had air in it, this was a massive mistake, it wouldn't blend, but at least you could see the foundation... when it dried I was left with little "holes" all around the creases of my face where it had dried.
I bought and returned this foundation in the space of 24 hours. Totally useless. Nothing more than a vaguely tinted moisturizer. And I do mean vaguely--it offers absolutely no coverage, no evening out of complexion, nothing. It's just...mousse. I could probably cook a vanilla mousse myself, add a little food coloring, and get the same thing. I have no idea what Maybelline was thinking. Ridiculous.
I was interested in trying this new Air- Mousse Foundation, I have normal skin, not dry and not oily, with little to no blemishes. I liked this foundation because it was very sheer once applied and not heavy. I only need small-medium coverage, so if you are looking for heavy all day coverage, this foundation is not for you. I live in Central Texas where the humidity is insane during the summer, so I like how this mousse felt very light weight and not like my face was melting. You do need a finishing powder to set in the foundation.
I decided to try this product based on seeing the commercial on television. I'm always looking for lightweight foundations once the warm weather comes, and this one looked interesting.
I applied it about two hours ago over my usual makeup base of milk of magnesia and monistat chafing gel and it went on well. Your BEST BET is to always set it with powder. I applied my usual powder, L'OREAL True Match powder and it smoothed and set it to perfection.
There is no way that you can wear this foundation without powder to set it. I also used my usual concealer, Maybeline ME under my eyes and on some acne marks I have. And I must say, I look sensational today.
This is a really good warm weather foundation in terms of it is lightweight and easy to apply. Just pump on the back of your hand and take it from there, as the bottle tells you to do. Also, be sure you shake it up WELL! If you don't you'll end up pumping out a product that is streaked and not well-mixed at all.
I've seen other reviews here where they suggest applying with a makeup brush. I will give that a try next time.
But this foundation is definitely worth a look.
I saw this product and thought it'd be perfect - a liquid type foundation, but not too heavy. I bought it, and I must say, to me, it was expensive. I usually don't spend $14 on a foundation. Also, this is the first time I have ever written a review on ANYTHING. That's because I think this product SUCKED. It's worthless. It did nothing but make my face moist. I don't understand why they sell different shades. It's sheer w/no tint. The foam comes out white- with no skin tones shades at all. I thought it would have a tint to it- hence the different shades they sell. I am very disappointed. Almost disappointed enough to write Maybelline and tell them I'd like my money back. And again, this is the first time I've reviewed any product in the world on line. This stuff is a waste of money.
i read reviews on this product on various websites and the reviews were all negative. i wanted ot buy this foundation for the longest time just to try it out and see if i would like it for the summer time. although the reviews werent as i expected, i bought the foundation anyways a few days ago. i used it that day and was quite impressed, yes, it is not a full coverage foundation, but for what it's claiming to be, the coverage is exactly how i would expected it to be. when i used it i got a quarter sized amount on the back of my hand used it for my entire face. after that, i applied some concealer under my eyes and on two problem areas on my skin. i set it with some powder and it looked as good as my revlon colorstay. i have very oily skin and i have acne scarring all over my face. this foundation worked really well on me with coverage i was pretty satisfied with. i have very pale skin as well, im in the shade 110 porcelain ivory. it does not look orange on me at all, it matches my skin perfectly! if you want to buy this foundation, i would recommend it!
This is the worst foundation I've ever tried. It was too expensive for the amount of product you're given. I first tried this product after applying moisturizer. Even when I applied it sparingly, my face was dry and my skin was tight within minutes. I returned it immediately. No shame.
