I was really excited when I saw this foundation as I have a lot of troubles finding a foundation to match my yellow toned skin, when I put it on it had a very strong fragrance similar to that of an old lady but the look it gave my face made me over look it. Having extremely dry skin, it is very rare for my skin to look very fresh but this foundation gave me that, for all of half an hour when the foundation started waring off and looked very patchy. I would not recommend this foundation to aaanyone
This was one of the worst foundations I've ever tried. The color was just so orangey looking (but aren't all Maybelline foundations orange looking?). I'm already oily skinned & I feel like this made me 10x oilier when I had it on. The coverage wasn't good at all & the smell of it was just disgusting. After it being on my face for an hour, I still smelled it! I don't recommend this.
This product is awful... I have very dry skin and it made it 10 times worse. It made my skin flakey and usually im acne free but gave me a lot of cystic pimples! It looks great when you first apply it but after not even an hour it's off your face and on your clothes. By the end of the day it looked like I had no makeup on at all.
Ew gross no way! That says it all!! Was excited to use my new makeup fur work and stuff turned out to be disgusting it leaves you're face so oily and glossy looking . It' was a terrible buy for me, smells nasty too.. This would probably be good for people with dry skin, but if you have normal skin it'll actually eff it up.
I was so excited to purchase this! I used it for about a month and I HATE it. Don't even waste your money. It has light coverage so you have to put on layers and layers of it.. It also has a glossy finish. If you have oily skin like me, definitely don't get this. Just one hour after I applied it my face was super oily. I blotted and packed on loose powders on my face and it still didn't help. My nose had oil puddles on it...and it was so shiny and nasty looking. So embarrassing!
i loooove this foundation! it works great with my dry skin for the most part, although it does cling to some dry patches on my forehead sometimes...but my bangs always cover them, so i don't mind much at all. everywhere else on my face looks perfect and seamless with this foundation on. it really does let my skin breath. it has just enough pigmentation to even out my skintone and cover most of my imperfections. it doesn't look cakey at all, and it wears all day. when reviews said that it was dewy, i was prepared to look just a little too oily for my liking... as it turns out, the finish isn't all that dewy. it does have some shine, yeah, but it looks extremely natural and nice. then again, i do have dry skin, so people with oily skin may beg to differ. i have this in the shade 210, which is a liiittle too dark for my skin (like half a shade darker), so i'm going to get another bottle in the shade 130 to mix with it. 210 has just enough yellow in it for me though, and once summer comes along it will probably be a perfect fit!
the fact that it clings to some dry patches on my forehead and that it doesn't have a pump are the only cons to this foundation. other than that, i really recommend it!
This foundation blends well with my skin. My skin is very sensitive, so finding a foundation that is SPF 15+ and dermatologist tested that will not break my skin out is important. Some beauty gurus call it “dewy”, I’d say it gives one a natural look. The coverage is amazing. Many reviewers have mentioned that it gives light to medium coverage. I am very pale and it is hard to find a foundation that will not turn my skin darker, but this one had the best tones. It is definitely not for people with oily skin, though. It has no pump, so you either have to use your fingers or a makeup pad.
I bought this in 115 because the store didn't carry 110, but it still fit my pale skin very well. I have normal to dry skin and this foundation imparted the perfect amount of dewiness. I have only used it a few times, but for now I am sold. I didn't notice it rubbing off like the other reviewers have.
Even though you can apply it with your fingers, I used a stippling brush and it gave a fabulous finish. I did follow up with a light translucent power to set it though. It doesn't give a crazy amount of coverage, but for me, that's ok. I want my skin to breathe and if I have blemishes I need to cover, then I use concealer.
Compared to the Dream Matte line, the colour options are far better for those on the pale end (Dream Matte Mousse in Ivory is seriously a joke—it looks dark and orangy on my skin).
For those looking to create a youthful and radiant look, this is the product. With spring around the corner, this foundation is an ideal choice.
Got this because I was using the Instant Age Rewind in cocoa 360 but once my summer tan faded it was waaay too dark and I got tired of mixing it with a lighter elf tinted moisturizer. I really liked the consistency and coverage of that foundation so I figured why not try another maybelline foundation since it was on sale at target for $6. The available shades were minimal for darker skin tones (what else is new) but I took a chance on 355 (the darkest shade)which turned out to be a perfect match.
It transfers easily but a primer or setting powder might fix that. The finish is really natural looking and even though it transfers a bit it never fades completely and still looks nice at the end of the day in my opinion.
At first I really liked this foundation but as I got closer to the bottom of the bottle I found my skin was getting oilier and oilier. It started oxidixing and making me break out on my forehead, and I NEVER get pimples apart from certain times of the month. It wears off after only a couple of hours too.
I thought maybe it was just because I was getting to the bottom and it may have gone stale. After buying another bottle I realised, no. The new bottle did exactly the same.
I would not recommend this foundation to people with oily to very oily skin.
