I don't know how I feel about this product. It's got a great coverage but, even after applying powder, it makes my face look shiny and oily and I don't even have naturally oily skin! The price of the product doesn't make up for its quality. Disappointed!

I have oily skin in my t-zone, and really love this product. It's matte, it stays on for at least 6 or so hours, and it's budget friendly. The only thing that I don't like, is that you have to kind of "dig out" the product, which isn't very hygienic. But overall, a great purchase!!

I'm still absolutely in love with this product! I only wish that they had more darker shades. The darkest shade almost matches my skin, but in the light, it can make it look a bit pale.

I love the texture of this product! I have very oily, acne-prone skin and I love using a thin layer of this foundation on my skin for school or just a casual day's wear. It definitely looks natural and evens out my skin tone, which is all I need it to do for just an every day look. I love the packaging, and although it does look orangey, applying a thin layer and blending well (I use a small stipple brush to apply) it isn't orange at all, and I have very pale skin. Overall, I love this product, and I will repurchase!

If your skin is normal this is fine. Terrible for oily or acne skin.

I know some people rave about this foundation, but I didn't like it at all. I think that for one, it just wasn't right for my skin type. I have rather dry skin, so full coverage matte foundations don't tend to work out that great for me, & just didn't glide on very nicely. But I couldn't even sheer it out or mix it with moisturizer, because it was really orangey. I got the palest shade they had, the Porcelain Ivory, & it was still way too dark as well as orangey toned. I'm pale, but not THAT pale, so I was surprised. It definitely appears alot lighter than it actually is when you're looking at it through the glass jar. Personally, I like the Dream Mousse liquid one that comes in the pump bottle much better.

i purchased this product as i liked the colors the foundation came in. i used a normal foundation brush to apply the mousse it did feel very matte on my face but i disliked the texture and the way my skin looked with the foundation it was very thick and didn't last very long on my skin. at the end of the day as a girl from Liverpool i obviously want to be glam all day and not have my makeup become patchy and look like i have a skin disease within twenty minutes of wearing the product. i gave the packaging a one because i dont like the thought of a pot of makeup i put the brush on my face then back in the pot although i keep my face clean you dont know what germs are around. i gave the price a one even tho this product wasnt overally expensive it retails for around £7.96 and i think thats too expensive for such a bad product xoxox

This foundation works well for my skin even though I have quite dry skin. The only problem I have with it is that I don't really like the feel of putting it on my face with a beauty blender, but that's just me. The finish it leaves on my face is really nice and I would recommend this product to people with oily skin as you don't need a matte-ifying powder to set it, just a regular one would do. Overall I am quite pleased with this product.

I have been using this foundation since it came out years ago and it is still one of my favorites! It has a nice fluffy texture and a very matte finish. I like to use this product on my T-zone and under my eyes to cover dark circles as it can be fairly full-coverage when built up. I don't typically use this all over my face as the formula can be drying on the parts of my face that are not typically oily, like my cheeks. I love using this in combination with Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse. I am not a huge fan of the packaging because you have to keep putting your fingers in it but there isn't really another way to package it to maintain the whipped texture so I have just accepted that fact. Also, the lid is slightly tapered so it is difficult to stack in your makeup drawer since it isn't flat on the top of the lid (I have it in several shades in my makeup stash!) Overall, I like the coverage and shade range, the matte texture is great for oily or combination skin types, and it is fairy inexpensive at the drug store, which is always a plus when you're looking for something to wear every day (they used to make a blush and bronzer version which was also equally great but I haven't seen them in a long while, boooo).
