Would never have even considered this foundation until I noticed my daughter using it and liked how it looked on her. I've used many foundations over the years, both high-end and DS brands. At the store, I spent a lot of time deciding upon a color. The one I chose, 220, was a good match. Application with the little sponge top was good, placing the right amount of product on the areas and smoothing it on. I ended up with a very nice medium coverage look, it felt good on the skin, and didn't emphasize lines. I applied light blush over it, and that was it. Nothing else. No primers, no finishing powders. It lasted all day. I now have fairly normal skin, due to good skin care routines, so it didn't feel oily or dry after application. I'm not sure how hygienic the sponge top applicator really is, however. I haven't explored if it can be removed and washed yet. But, I'm pleased enough to use this everyday.
I love the sponge applicator on this product. This makeup also has a nice silky feel. I put it on with the sponge applicator and blend with my fingers. The Buff Beige is a nice color for me. However, I have an oily T-Zone even though I'm over 50 and I'm shiny pretty soon after applying. Also, this foundation doesn't have enough coverage for me so I am going to try the Age Defying Revlon one that everyone gives good review to! I like this foundation and think it is good for younger women who only need light coverage. It would be good for sporty, outdoor activity. I frequently have to powder throughout the day with this make up, but I still like it.
I like to use this foundation when i want a flawless foundation. I like to set with my NYC face primer.
***** UPDATE ***** Ok so I "absolutely loved" this makeup when I first used it, but now, after 7 days of use, I must change my review, so here goes: After one week of use I have to say that my face was noticeably more oily and break-out prone. I am 39 years old and don't have much trouble with breakouts anymore, but I do have combination skin and this stuff made my entire face seem very oily after a few days. I guess it was just my reaction to the serum inside the product, but it was not pretty. And I did suddenly have a major breakout, so obviously this product is too much for my skin. If you have dry skin this may be good for you, but it just didn't work for me after a few days.
I absolutely love this stuff. Let me state first that I am fickle when t comes to foundation. I like something but rarely buy the same foundation twice. I like to try new things, but I think I have found a keeper in this one. I am getting older and my skin is changing, so I noticed that foundations I used in the past were settling into the "laugh lines" and the larger pores on my face. Even some so-called "anti-aging" foundations did this, but not this Maybelline Age Rewind foundation! It looks flawless, even after being on all day!
The color I bought, Nude Light #190, matched perfectly; which is unusual for me. It glides on with the applicator, then I used a foundation brush to blend. I set it with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind The Protector Powder in Light/Medium #30. All blended very well, and looked flawless right after application.
But the real test was hours later. I am a nurse and I work 10+ hours a day. I do not have time to touch up my makeup, but this stuff actually looked BETTER after hours on my face! I was shocked.
It doesn't feel heavy, it covers and blends well and lasts all day. Cheap too! I love this stuff!!!
I LOVE this stuff! It makes my skin look flawless without being too cakey and thick. It goes on easily as well and isn't fussy, which I love. I put the product on my face and then blend it with a foundation brush. It leaves my skin looking smooth and perfect.
Color was bad on me so maybe I'm biased but just no coverage, too liquid-y and felt like I was putting like something that was meant to go in pancakes or cookies and not on my face.
I really LOVE this product.
Leaves a dewy finish, covers any fine lines I have and matches my skin perfectly. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
If you notice my age range when I tell you I have tried a lot of products it is the truth. I have been using Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup for well over 1 year now because it is WONDERFUL.
There is nothing better then finding a product that does what it claims to do. This is one of them.
It is easy to use and your hands or fingers do NOT get covered with foundation. That is a big plus. Just wind and apply. But what is the kicker for me is I am able to erase fine line, brown spots and even moles...swirl swirl and swirl and my makeup is on beautifully in 30-40 seconds. Lfe is sweet.
One tube lasts approx 1 month. I also use the Erase Concelor which I only wish they had a darker color to offer. I am learning a light concelor colors look awkward and going a little darker is best.
Bottom line is I am starting to write more reviews becasue I am tired of a basket of products that are down right junk. It's wasting my money and I if I find something that really delivers I will pass my thoughts along.
Give it a try and I hope you see the results I have,
I love the way this goes on - not too heavy but not too light either. Also the colour is not too dark for my skin (I am super duper pale). And the application is my favorite part - Goes no like a feather with the built-in brush! This is the only foundation I have found that I use.
I never take the time to write any reviews on any products unfortunately. It is mostly due to time constraints or just getting distracted and putting things off until later. I must say that this product was the only product that was good enough to get me to go online and write a review! I have always used only high-end makeup because I felt that when I used to buy drugstore brands when I was much younger, it only ended up costing me more down the line because I was never satisfied with the quality or the results which made me just buy more products to find the one that would work. I have been using MAC religiously for the last 15 years. I'm mostly picky with my foundation as I believe that it is the main secret to flawless makeup.
Lately, and as I got a little older (I'm 36 yrs old), I started to notice that my MAC foundation is starting to go right into my wrinkles/fine lines and actually enhance them. I accepted it and assumed it was just what I had to deal with as I get older. I then went back to MAC and bought another foundation that cost me around $30. Still I had the same issue! One night I was browsing YouTube and saw a video where one of the makeup "gurus" recommended this foundation for people with my exact problem. I decided to give it a shot as I had nothing to lose at this point. To my surprise, this foundation was honestly surprisingly amazing! It hid my wrinkles, it kept my skin feeling very moisturized and the sponge goes on like a feather. I recommend finishing it off with a good quality foundation brush to evenly blend it in and to give you that airbrush finish. It is medium coverage which was also surprising to me! Usually drugstore foundations tend to mostly have light/sheer coverage which does not work for me. I have always used full coverage foundation but with this maybelline one, I'm happy with the medium coverage and I would recommend it to anyone.
