This makeup isn't just for mature skin.
I'm 22 and I was at work the other day (I work at Walmart) and my coworker who's the same age as me had just the most flawless looking skin. Smooth, not a pore to be seen, and so radiant. I asked her what she used and was surprised when she told me it was this. I immediately went and bought it for just over $10 CAD. And WOW. This foundation is perfect for dry/combination skin. It's so smooth and creamy, with a tiny bit of shimmer that makes your complexion glow. I have very fair skin with cool undertones and the lightest shade, Buff Beige, is perfect for my skin. I didn't even use primer and just blended with my fingers because my brush was dirty, and it still blended perfectly. Topping it with a finishing powder gave it a natural semi-matte finish, though if you prefer dewy I'd go powderless. The only downside (and not worth taking off a lippie) is the glass bottle. Could definitely use a pump, it's a little old-style.
I honestly wish this was marketed as a hydrating/smoothing makeup for all age groups, because it's most certainly not just for older skin.

Behold, the "other half" of my foundation HG!
I stayed with Creamy Natural which in this variety is #200. As an example Fit Me in the same shade is #135. I have no idea why they'd do that, but they did it and I can only assume they are intentionally trying to confuse me as part of some diabolical plot.
Alas, I have a laundry list of skin problems (rosacea, oily T-zone, dry and flaky, red and inflamed and just plain old discoloration...evidently I was born to be a make-up guinea pig, probably another part of that diabolical plan). I had high hopes before I tried it, so here's what I found after applying with my fingertips and blending it out with one of Sephora's concealer brushes. (primer and moisturizer were already on)
Consistency: Indistinguishable from a million other liquid foundations
Smell: Hardly any
Longevity: A good 7 hours, and longer with primer.
If I had just one teensy little complaint it would be the need (on hot days) to "set" it with powder or spray if I wanted to completely avoid the much-dreaded "oil slick" . Ladies and gents who run oily to start with might end up really frustrated with Age Rewind.
So, Age Rewind promises you not just great coverage, but also a noticeable improvement of your skin with regular use. I'll update if something miraculous or disastrous happens!

Let me start off by saying I've tried dozens of foundations. From high end, to drugstore and the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse has been my favorite for years. But I've been hearing rumors that it's being discontinued [not happy about this]. Anywaysss so I figured I'd try something new. I picked this one up on a whim and let me tell you...I LOVE this foundation! I have very dry, sensitive and fair skin. I typically use a primer, but find that with this foundation, as long as my skin is clean, exfoliated and moisturized, a primer is not needed! It seriously makes my skin look flawless and lasts all day. Now...crossing my fingers that Maybelline doesn't decide to discontinue this one.

I want to start by saying that Instant Age Rewind Radiant Firming Makeup is discontinued & its replacement is Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Makeup. Anyway, I have this foundation in the shade Caramel Dark 2 & it's the perfect match. The first time I wore it, I thought it was horrible & I almost pitched it in the trash. I felt I was wearing a mask because it was so thick & heavy; I could tell I had something on my face. It's offers full coverage & unfortunately, it caked on my skin. It took me a few wears to get it looking & feeling better on my skin. I found out less is more when it comes to this because of its consistency. It's very thick & it covers dark spots & acne spots regardless of whether or not I decide to use a concealer. Even though I finally got it to work, I don't wear it often because of the satin finish. I have only skin & a matte or natural finish is what I need. I think this is a good enough foundation. The only cons are the finish (if you have oily skin) & the fact that I have to pour it—there's no pump.

I bought this one on classic ivory which a bit darker than my skin tone nw 15-20. but I am not
really worried since the quality of this foundation is really good. it gives a dewy finish &
has light reflecting formula that make my face radient & healthy.
the only thing I did not like is the packing it is a glass bottle with no dispenser
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I'm 16 and have acne prone, combination to oily skin naturally but due to the fact that I use acne treatments containing salicylic acid my skin can become dry and I find that this foundation works wonderfully with my skin. I use a primer first and then apply the product evenly all over my face using a damp beauty blender for best results.
Good color selection
Medium to buildable coverage
Evens out skin tone flawlessly
Doesn't feel heavy
Has a nice dewy finish
Doesn't need to be touched up much
Overall I really love this product. It's my favorite drugstore foundation mainly because it does NOT break me out at all!

I Love this foundation, I always go back to this I always get
complements And I do not have to spend $50.oo bucks
on makeup, I like this better than Estee Lauder, the same
company's make this foundation, your just paying for the name.

I just purchased this yesterday (10/9/13) and used it for the first time today. So far I love it, along with the 2 other Maybelline foundations I own (Matte Mousse & Dream Liquid Mousse). I like them all as well as higher end foundations. This one goes on really smooth and dries to a nice, soft finish. I am 49 now, so have "aging" skin, so a nice foundation for me, but this might not work as well on younger, oilier skins. We all know products work differently on everyone, so it's just a "try it and see" kind of thing, but for me I really like this one!

When I first tried this, I thought ugh.. too heavy. shows up on my skin. Plus, I got buff biege, which has a bit of yellow undertone, so I thought it might look good on my skin. But, when I put it on, it felt too light. I was going to chuck it.
Then, I saw a video on youtube about by the makeup artist Wayne Goss about using a wet sponge (where you've squeezed out the extra water) to apply makeup - especially heavier, drier or creme makeup. So, I thought.. why not give that a try before chucking it. And so I tried it. Oh my god.. it looked so nice. What a difference. By wetting the sponge, then squeezing it out, it keeps the sponge from absorbing all the makeup, but the sponge gives you a smoother look, and you can build in the areas you need more coverage.
So, I like this very much when I use a wet sponge to apply it. It gave me good coverage without looking like too much. I am fair, reddish hair, over 50, with a bit of rosacea. Because I have some rosacea, I do use 2 shades. I dab the sandy beige on my cheeks and use the buff beige elsewhere - around eyes and elsewhere, and the sponge to blend. That way, my rosacea is blended to my real skin tone which ends up matching my neck. Looks good.
A pump would be more hygenic, and easier to apply.. but hey, I can make do with the bottle.
I would buy again. And I will use the wet sponge again for any makeup I find a bit heavy to apply by hand. Good way to get coverage, without a too heavy madeup look.

I've tried a million foundations - high end and drugstore- and returned a lot of them, too. I really like this - and I'm super surprised that I do. Makes my skin look fantastic! Really healthy looking. I use setting sprays because I have a hard job, so I can't speak to the staying power, but it looks wonderful, and makes me look healthier and more well-rested.
