This product is the PERFECT color for me which is really sad because the quality is terrible. I have a really hard time finding pale foundations, drugstore and high end but I saw how pale this was and picked it up when it first came out. I'm in a very hot/ humid climate, about 90 degrees in the spring and around 100 in the summer. That being said this will slide right off your face and my face isn't that oily. It is a little bit better in the winter though.I have tried primers under it and set it with powder and everything. It lasts a little longer with powder but powder always makes my face look cakey so I try to avoid using it.
Also it never really dries and it transfers so beware of that if you have a s.o. and like to lean against their shirt!
I'm trying this product again because I ran out of my Lancome and have to wait a few weeks before I can purchase a better/paler foundation. This time though I am trying it with Merle Norman's Matte Moisturizer, I will update if it stays on better (doubtful).
To Be Honest The First Time I Used This Foundation, I Thought Yuk! Slippy!,Slidy!,Oily!, And That's Coming From A Person With Dry Skin.
A Few Months Down The Line I Realised I Had Used Everything But A Sponge To Apply, It. Change My Complete Opinion On The Foundation It Sat Nice Look Not Overall Dewy But A Natural Shine/Glow. Then I Retried With My Fingers And Brush Again And Found The Application Wasn't The Problem It Was Just The Fact That I Hadn't Worked It In As Much As I Needed Too, Now Even Though This Foundation Is Super Bendable It Needs Time To Be Work And Set Into The Skin.
The Colour Range Is Fantastic And Hallelujah A Drugstore Foundation That Takes In To Consideration Deeper Skin Tone As Well As Yellow Undertones For Fairer Skin
As For The Packaging Here In The UK This Foundation Comes With A Pump Which Makes Me Give More Credit To Maybelline, Also It Feel's Nice And Heavy But Not So Heavy That You Can't Travel As It Is Glass.
This Foundation Is A Fantastic Natural Light-Medium Lightweight Foundation And Is Really Affordable. Great Foundation But I Would Recommend Making Sure You Work This Foundation In Enough
Awful awful foundation. It made me look like a greaseball as soon as I put it on. I have combination dry skin and it just does not work for me at all. Shame because I have used numerous other maybelline foundations and they were pretty okay. Don't waste your money. There are plenty other better drugstore foundations out there.
This has to be the worst drugstore foundation I've ever used. I have slight acne scars and discoloration. This did nothing for me. Very light coverage. It feels greasy on my face and added more oil and shine. The foundation slides and clumps up in a couple of hours. Not a good look. Maybe if you have extremely dry skin this may work for you. Only plus I see is that it contains spf 18. Oily and/or acne-prone skin, stay far, far away!
Ehhhh, I hated this foundation. It looks super cakey on me and it makes me oil up so fast.. It has a weird scent to me. It just moves around my face, it does NOT stay in place. Threw it away >.< continued >>
Honestly this has worked for me for over a year. Yes in the being it would break out but my face adjusted. Its covers very nicely including liquid and powder but does last as long as i wanted. I recommenced just to use for school or for quick days you don't want to wear so much make-up. In the end its a matter of adjusting to it which you shouldn't do.
I purchased this in shade 220 which was a great match for my NC 30 skin. I would say it had light to medium coverage and looked pretty natural. I bought this to use on the weekends, for light coverage. I knew that it would not have great staying power. It defintiley doesn't control oil. I think this would be best for someone with normal to dry skin. The bad thing about it is it caused me to break out in a face full of tiny pimples. I couldn't see them until I washed my face. My whole face was red and bumpy. I obviouldy had an allergic reaction to this foundation. This has never happened to me before. I would make sure you read the ingredients to see if you are allergic to something in it. I am not sure what I am allergic to, but I will never use this again.
I have heard a lot of good reviews about this, but as for me this foundation those not work for me at all. its a matte finish but I just don't like it. for woman of colour the colour shades are limited. when you this foundation during the summer its very dewy and it get everywhere like when you hug someone it would stain there clothes. its just a no no for me
I usually use Maybelline dream satin liquid foundation as they do light porcelain which is good for my pale skin, but I saw this and wished to try it, although the only shade I could find for this product was 120 which was a shade too dark for my skin tone but it has good coverage and when set with powder lasts all day. It's good value for money and works well for normal skin.
I was really excited when i found that foundation on sale since i had heard some great reviews about it. When i tried it .... I felt really disappointed ... The packaging is very nice especially for a drugstore product, comes in a glass bottle with a pump and with a black lid on top feels very classy and substantial . Unfortunately i dont have any more possitive things to say about that foundation... Has a nice slippery creamy texture, glides on the skin effortless and blends very easily . The coverage is good, fot sure is not a full coverage foundation, but you can easily build it to a light-medium coverage . My main problem is that the consistency of this foundation is very oily. It doesnt feel particularly rich or greasy but it never dries or sets on the skin feels very unstable on the skin and highlights my pores and fine lines and keep in mind that my skin is more on the dry side . When i try to set it with powder the brush gets wet from the foundation and locks the surface of the powder .... Am i going to repurchase?? No ! For sure no ! I ll try to use it again during the winter months when my skin is even drier .
