I tried this foundation in shade 130. It is slightly darker than my skin-tone but blends out great. It offers full coverage with and without primer. It is a little oily to the touch and does take a while to set, but with powder foundation on top, it gives a flawless, poreless finish which I love, seeing as I have a bunch of acne scars. It's cheap, too. I recommend giving it a try.
This foundation is amazing on my dry skin. I have very flushed cheeks and this cover so well. Best foundation I have ever tried
For reference: I'm NC 35-37 and bought this in 230.
Oh boy. I thought this was going to be Maybelline's equivalent for L'oreal's True Match but no...
1. Dewy dewy. I'f you're a fan of dewy finish, you'll love it. I don't simply because it emphasizes all my skin imperfections.
2. I don't think this is for combo/oily skins. A few hrs after applying this (and trying it w/ different primers or no primer), my skin was a grease manufacturing company.
3. Doesn't lasts much. I mean, first couple of hrs is okay but then it starts to go crazy on my skin. It separates and my skin looks blotchy.
4. Transfer like crazy. +Snoozing while having this on is not a good experience+
I guess this could work for someone with super dry/dull skin that lives in a cool environment. I live in an island with very humid weather and obviously that doesn't help. Funny thing is, though my True Match does transfer, it does not leaves my skin super oily or 'separates' on it. +
Isn't Maybelline owned by L'oreal? Maybe they can give Maybelline a bit of help to work with the formula. Also, a pump would be highly appreciated (in all drugstore foundations)
I was looking for a new foundation, aside from my regular (which is MAC's studio sculpt) because it was getting a bit pricey. So I wandered off to Walmart to get this product because of a recommendation from a friend. I went ahead and bought my shade and went home to try it out. The bottle is nice, but that is probably the only thing I liked about this product. As for coverage, it's not the best and it made my skin extremely oily, which is weird cause my skin is normally dry. Another thing I really didn't like was that it made my eyeliner leak, which is a no-go for me because I wear a cat eye almost every day (gel eyeliner). I guess for some people it works cause my friend loves it. But not for me unfortunately. I tried Revlon Color Stay and absolutely love it :)
Love this foundation !! It set a natural look on me. The color I chose fit me just perfect.
I was excited about this b/c it's sooo hard finding a drugstore foundation that is light enough for me. I am a 110...the lightest shade. It's ok....very sheer coverage. Wears better with a primer
I bought this foundation in shade 355 after being a bit disappointed in the bb cream from the same brand. It didnt offer as much coverage as I would have liked and it was a bit light for my skin as well.
It also made me break out which I'm not to happy about.
I have dry sensitive skin are their any suggestions for me?
I've tried this foundation several times, really trying to like it. However, each time I apply, I remember why I didn't like it to begin with. It is way too heavy for my age group, and dries to a cakey-looking non-natural finish. Lines and wrinkles POP out! Only good thing about it was the color as it was a great match. Not sure what type of skin this might work for better. Maybe normal with no lines or wrinkles.
This foundation is disgusting! I wanted to try and find something that would match my skin tone a little better than my Covergirl Aquasmooth. Although the 110 (fair) was a good match I felt nasty all day. It never set even with a powder over it and by the end of the day I could not wait to get it off. If i itched my face it slid right off, and not to mention it made me break out the first day! If you want light coverage and to look like your diseased... this is for you, but for me, back to CG Aquasmooth!
This is for people that want very dewy skin. It's coverage is good but your skin will not look like skin after. It's longevity is pretty good. It doesn't have a pump though. So if you don't want your skin to look natural then you want this
