I am consistently pleased by many Maybelline foundations and this one is no different. Very reminiscent of their old Shine Free stick foundation, which I was so bummed to see discontinued back in the late '90s/early '00s. The secret for this for me is to only apply to areas needing concealing, then use a big powder brush to blend and finish with a light dusting of loose powder. I definitely don't look as dewy as early in the day as I do with any other foundation, even my other favorite Maybelline one, the Dream Matte mousse. I do think the color selection could be better, but I look better than I have in ages and it doesn't seem to be an acne trigger.
Got this product yesterday have on 2day I love it so far feels very light on my skin & easy to apply :)
Drug store products have never worked for me! I don't even attempt them anymore. However, I saw this product on Instagram and something about it caught my eye. I figured, whatever $6, why not..THANK YOU INSTAGRAM!!! This goes on sooo smooth and matte. I have extremely oily skin and it has kept me pretty matte. I wear my Cover Fx matte primer underneath and it works beautifully! I am wearing the #350 Coconut. I would suggest this to everyone!
Coverage-Defintely FULL,covers like and texture reminds me of concealer,blends VERY easily. It is matte. Wide color range available,i would def reccomend this for anyone but if you are oily/combination skin save this for cooler weather cuz it does not control oil/shine very well in hot or humid conditions. I am saving this for use as a winter foundation or use it as a concealer :)
I bought this in pure beige for my neutral olive skintone. It blends well,it brings a soft,nice finish to the skin. It last fairly long. It goes well with other products:like blushes and bronzers! Love it!
I bought this recently because it reminded me of two stick foundations I used to love - Quick Stick and Pan-Stik, both of which were deleted years ago. This one is marketed as a gel stick and says it has an "anti-shine core" and you can see it, but in actual use it goes on like an ordinary, heavy stick foundation. I expected it would be really light and sheer and give some kind of moisturizing but it is very matte. It is not suitable to use all over the face - coverage is too heavy. I use it for touchups around the nose, mouth and smile lines. It's really the same as a coverstick and so I wouldn't buy it again. However, I can see it being useful if someone wanted to carry a small stick in their purse for touchups.
I bought this foundation from Walmart. I was going to purchase Nearly Naked again or True match liquid foundation. But I saw this and thought about the great reviews on Youtube about it. I decided to try it. I'm oily skinned and I got the shade Toffee Caramel #330 which is my perfect shade now that Im very tanned from this Spring break/ Summer break. Miami weather tanned skin. Lol But I absolutely love this stick foundation because its sheer to full coverage. You can layer lightly so you can build up to full coverage. I love medium as I prefer to blur my imperfections. And its dewy. Which is a plus for me. Im enjoying this already and I just started wearing it. Go Maybelline!
I regret being one of the rare bad reviews for this, but I do not like it at all. I've had it for a few weeks and used it several times trying different application methods (fingers, sponge, brush), and it's just not for me.
I have good skin but this doesn't cover well at all, even layered. I get better coverage with my light liquids like True Match, BB creams, and tinted moisturizers like TheBalm. This collects in my pores, doesn't blend smoothly (leaves little patchy bits), and doesn't have a particularly pretty finish. I'm not oily, so I can't speak to how well it wears on oily skin or if it helps to control oil. It lasts okay on my normal skin.
It's not very expensive and it's nicely portable, but I'm sorry I bought it.
Whoever marketed this as a non oily foundation is a big fat liar.I initially bought it because I don't want to use my expensive foundation during summer when I don't see anybody. For the first couple hours I had this on my face, it felt like an oil slick and mask like. Granted I didn't set it, it was unpleasant. My face also looked the shiniest its ever been with a foundation, which I actually don't mind much because I have dry skin and chase the dewy look, but I definatley don't recommend this to oily skinned people, it would be a nightmare. However, it dried in like an hour and looked normal. Despite the negative start on this review, I actually like this foundation a lot. The packaging is adorable, and the stick form is easy to quickly apply. It blends easily but can look cakey, so be careful how you layer it. The coverage is great and it has 10 colors to choose from. I often have problems with drugstore foundation colors being too pink or dark for me (Im really pale) but this foundation seems to match me really well. I admit I was drawn to it by the huge picture of Emily Didonato who is one of my favorite models (; It was 6.99 at cvs which isn't too bad, but it is a very small tube. Id repurchase it if I ran out.
do not use if you have SUPER oily skin. whoever said this foundation was oil free lied!
I have dry skin & was looking for a foundation that was quick and easy to use on days i work. i am the shade 355 coconut. It matched my skin perfect. I blended it out with my sedona lace flat top kabuki and got decent coverage. I don't suffer from acne nor do I have many blemishes so the coverage was fine. The coverage is very natural and gives off like velvet finish which I LOVE. I still set with a powder especiallyy on my forehead because this stuff can come off a little greasy. My only concern is with this product it fades after maybe 3 hours. I might need to purchase a primer or a setting spray. I can see myself running out of this product quickly but the price is affordable. Def is a winner in my book!
