I've used this foundation for 6 years. I have Mary Kay reps asking constantly what makeup I wear! It goes on so light and matte, not watery or shiny like other foundations. I've never tried anything else after I found Maybelline's mousse. During the summer I darken my shade, and in the winter I lighten. So simple! The trick is to use a powder underneath. I will always love this product although the price is now almost $10--- RIDICULOUS!
I was really hoping for some good coverage and a matte finish. I got neither. it looked cakey and I just felt gross and oily and it pretty much melted off my face. I got a pimple after using this but I'm not sure if this product is to blame. giving it to a friend with normal skin hoping they have better luck with it than I did.
THE GOOD: I think it covered my face well. I try to get pretty thick-coverage foundation and this met that need. It didn't make me break out.
THE BAD: It wasn't the right amount of coverage for me; I wanted something a little bit more. Plus, the texture was a little gross and constantly got under my acrylics to the point where it stained them. VERY frustrating to get that out.
THE UGLY: Carries a decent amount inside it, small but convenient packaging. Again, bad texture. Might've been a little too orangey but not enough for it to be noticeable or a problem for me.
This is one of the worst foundations I have ever used!! If you have any dryness, it just shows up even worse, even if you prime and/or moisturize. I bought the palest shade and it still looked orange on my pale skin. And to add insult to injury, it made me break out after just two days of using it. Steer clear!!
Colour, off, i bought the lightest shade and it was so orange i looked like an oompa loompa. Texture, horrible (tbh i do have dry skin so it should work better with oily). Horrible product
I love this foundation! I have tried many high end foundations such as Chanel, Lancome, and Estee Lauder and I keep coming back to this one. I apply it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and I get a flawless finish! Also the fact that it comes in a little glass jar is super convenient for me because it is easy to carry in my purse and it makes the application easier too, I just have to tap my brush into it. Just be sure to apply with a light hand so it wont look too cakey. Will definitely repurchase. The only reason I am not giving it 5 "stars" is because if you are not careful sometimes you can get that obvious foundation look.
I bought this foundation for £6.99 which is average for a drugstore foundation. But I've got to say i hate it, I have oily and dry skin, im oily on my forehead and dry all around my nose, and when I put it on the dry patches on my nose even after moistruizing it made them way worse than it was before and really accentuated them :/ Alot of oil was coming throughout the day. Overall i dont like it and I wouldn't repurchase Hope I Helped! :)
After a month of use: I use natural beige and it is perfect for my nc42 Indian skin tone. The shades differ greatly. Be sure to look online for shade swatches! I went by names initially and honey beige was orange on me! I apply it with my fingers (a light layer since it's high coverage) over neutrogena ultra sheer sunscreen and set it with Palladio rice powder (warm beige) and it lasts me all day in Florida's climate. If I have any shine after a few hrs all I do is dab with a napkin (or any clean absorbant material to be honest :p) and it looks matte again. It doesn't oxidize at all with my sunscreen which is hugely important to me. It covers up redness in my cheeks and forehead very nicely. It removes easily with my aveeno gentle cleanser but I use a DIY acv toner to ensure no residue is left. No breakouts! I advise against the use of a primer with this product as it contains dimethicone already.
hmmm what can i say, i am not a fan of foundations at all any of them but this is ok......its not something i where everyday but the application is nice and smooth i do set it with rice powder but its nice. the packaging could be more carrier friendly
This is an okay foundation, but it didnt make me feel like i found the best foundation that would really make me feel like i have a natural but all coverage foundation. Its an okay product, maybe if your starting out with makeup, you should try this , it is very easy to blend though, But it oxided on me and also it doesnt last very long, not like revlon colorstay, so in competion with that, it doesnt stand a chance! but otherwise i would recomend it to those with good to okay skin..
