Have this in shade 120.
What I like
- Shade 120 is PERFECT for my skin.
-The formula finish is really nice. A bit dewy (though this is probably not good for oily skin.)
- Has SPF 18. SPF is always a plus.
- The formula is very runny but silky and easy to blend.
What I don't like
-Not full coverage. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being no coverage, 5 being medium coverage and 10 being full coverage: I would rate this a 4. I can still see dark spots through the foundation. Definitely needs to be paired with concealer. Thankfully, Maybelline Fit me Concealer in Light 10 is awesome at fixing this.
- I didn't find it to be very buildable and any attempt to try to build made my skin feel really heavy.
-There is a very good chance your skin will break out from this. This foundation is not oil-free or non-comedogenic. I have acne prone sensitive skin. So far after using this for a week, I have not broken out but I have taken care to wash my face twice a day as opposed to my usual once a day. I won't come back and take off lippies if I do, since I am well aware of the risk of this foundation.
- No pump. I prefer blending foundation with my fingers and this foundation could use a pump. The formula is very runny and the cap to the bottle always ends up a mess.
- It doesn't last the entire day. By the time I leave college(and I stay there for 3-5 hours each day), it almost seems as if the product is fading.
Despite all of that, I do like this foundation but I do find it needs to be used with primer, concealer, and powder to reach it's full potential. The color 120 is perfect for my skin and I always have trouble finding a shade that is not too light but also not too dark for me. If I finish the bottle and don't end up breaking out, I might purchase again.
This is the only foundation I have ever repurchased and would have to be my HG foundation! I love the coverage and when primed and set correctly it lasts all day.
I have this in the 210 shade. I like that it contains a bit of sunscreen, matches my skin tone, and is easy to apply with my fingertips (I find that it works better that way with this formulation). Since I have oily skin, I notice that after a couple of hours the oiliness seeps through a bit. Thankfully it still held up in terms of coverage. It will exaggerate any flakiness so make sure to have a good base or moisturize if you have that problem like I do. I find this to be an average foundation for me and will most likely use up what I have but will not repurchase. It was about six dollars at Walmart which was not bad. I'm glad it works for others but it is not for me.
Great Product! The shade 310 is perfect for me with a fake tan and leaves a really beautiful radiant finish. Although, it does smell of sunscreen, but other than that, I would purchase again!
I am normally a NC 37-40 in mac and I use the studio fix fluid which gives a medium buildable coverage that sets matte. I used the colour 310 and i was a good match for my skin colour.
It has a sunscreen type of smell and it is very liquidy and runny. It sets with a semi-matte finish and i recommend setting it with a powder. i have used it a few times with out using a powder and my skin became oily very fast so i recommend using a powder. When i did use a powder it was very nice on my skin!
The foundation is very light on the skin and has a light to medium coverage and i did like it after trying it.
I would probably buy this again!
I have tried many foudations before but this one would have to be the worst i have ever tries.. I bave dry combo skin when is normal for me. This foundation made me look oily and streaky. By the end of my 8 hour work day it came off most of my face and I looled like a mess.. . Terrible Terrible makeup :(
I actually really like this foundation. Yes i get oily trough the day but i also get oily if im not wearing anything... and im not a fan of looking all matte. So what i like to do its at all times carry on my blotting paper cause i dont like to put layers over layers of powder. The finish this foundation gives is such a natural one but in a radiant kindda way, but also it covers and evens out my skin tone. i took off one lippie because of the horrible packaging... why dont you just get a stupid pump on it?? its so hard to get the exact amount you're going for... agrrr.. either way i'll definitly repurchase.
Do not buy this if you have combination or oily skin, or large pores. The makeup does not blend out well, and it doesn't matter what brush you use. Not enough coverage and does not last very long at all. I am disappointed since the color was a great match, but this was a waste of money. I usually love mabelline products as well, but not this one.
Okay first I bought this in the totally WRONG shade. I'm light/medium and I have no idea why I picked up 310, which is a dark shade. Really, I don't know why lol. But I wore it anyways just to see how it is, haha. Well first, it feels greasy on my already oily skin. Coverage was okay. Overall, not my favorite but next time, I'll actually get my right shade for this foundation. Ugh.
Brought this because Wayne Goss raved about this. This is a gel consistency and what I do not like about this is that it makes my skin look oily even with powder on top of it. It also have very low coverage. The color match is good. I am NC 25 in Mac and 125 matched me perfectly. Try this if you have dry skin. But oily skin people stay away. The packaging is also poorly made. You have to pour it out of the glass jar and sometimes I pour out too much. This liquid foundation is also too liquidy and spills easily.
