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.

This was my go to foundation until I noticed it turns orange. My skin is norm - dry. This gives my skin just the right amount of moisture and is not matte which dries my skin out and makes fine lines more obvious. Wish they had better non oxidizing shades.

WORST FOUNDATION. It has sucky lasting powder. I hate this so much. It looks so cakey even if you just use a little and if you have acne marks or acne this will be your worst nightmare. It doesnt cover ANYTHING. It looks like im wearing a transparent flour mask all over my face. Im gonna throw this away. Its horrible. I hate this.

I have recently realised that my skin tone has changed and fair shades that used to look good on me do not offer me the same amount of coverage anymore.
When I purchased a bottle of this foundation I very daringly went for Creamy Natural 200, pretty scary for me as I usually don't go much past a 100 or 120.
I was very pleasantly surprised when I applied this foundation just how good it looked and how much it complimented my skin.
The coverage is great, all my redness disappeared, my skin looks dewy and youthful and it lasts all day.
I also liked the fact that this foundation offered me enough coverage that I didn't feel the need to apply concealer.
I think it may be a little darker than what I would like but it is winter here in Australia so I am hoping it is a better match in summer. I can still get away with it though and I certainly do think I have a healthy summer glow about me.
I don't know about the firming bit, nothing looks firmer. I do think I look more youthful and there has been no settling in my creases.
I wish it came with a pump applicator.
My husband told me that I looked beautiful and that is all that matters to me.

I bought this foundation in the shade Buff Beige #130. Right off the bat I have to confess that I bought the wrong shade. This is too light for me so I can't count that against it. As for the formula, it goes on very nicely and it blends well. This foundation makes my skin oily as the day goes on but I have not had any issues with breakouts. I would like to try this foundation in another shade so I will buy it again and give it another shot.

NC25 here.....I have Sandy Beige which is just ever so slightly darker than I am but it actually works perfectly just for my forehead area that catches a little more of a tan. (which i am not really tan but its a shade darker than the rest of my face so this works) the coverage is medium to full and is buildable. the price is right. the formula is perfect for my dry skin. i prefer this and their 24 hour over my lancome teint miracle and chanel perfection lumiere! no scent which is great. this is an all around great foundation!

I have never done a review before and I made this account just to review this HORRIBLE product!!! if you have acne, STAY AWAY! this product does absolutely nothing. it covers up nothing! even little red marks. and it made me look cakey! my face actually looked better without this stuff on. it is useless and a complete waste of money. if you have flawless skin, this may be a good product for you. it's not drying like other foundations i've tried. but this stuff is garbage and i threw it out immediately. so dissapointed. again, definitely not for acne prone skin or for people with blemishes. oh and it smells like coffee.

I had heard so many raves about this product I decided to pick it up since i do not have a set foundation I use . At first I thought i was not using it right because the applicator does not make it very easy to apply evenly. So i looked up and found a couple video's on You Tube. Someone suggested to take a sponge to pat your face after you applied it . Well ok that's great and it worked, however if i am going to have to roll it on then use another applicator why not just use a liquid foundation . The coverage is nice the color is nice but I think the applicator and packaging is wasteful . I have had the product for less than a month and its nearly gone ! I wont be buying this again .

I was trying to find a decent drugstore foundation. I wanted something that'd match my pale olive skin and usually Maybelline doesn't match (ends up very pink on me). I was pleasantly surprised by this when it did. But that was the best for this. My skin is finicky with what goes on it and most foundations will cake (I have no idea why it does this; I have tried different time combinations- applying moisturizer & waiting 5 minutes, applying no moisturizer, applying moisturizer & waiting 10, 15,20minutes...etc). Anyways so this did cake and I gave up on it. Then there's the fact that I wear white at work and this came off onto it. I was disappointed by that. I was hoping that this foundation could last a work day for me (I apply it an hour before work so it hast to last 10hrs). It didn't. It also transferred. So those who don't mind that I'm sure it could work for you. I left this a 3 'cause I could see others loving this.

I love this foundation!!! It gives a lovely, even, natural looking coverage. Never have I tried ANYTHING that gives you such a natural, radiant glow and high coverage. If your skin is well behaved, you might find it a bit excessive for everyday wear, but even then it is perfect for special occasions. I love how it photographs.
Its staying power isn't phenomenal though. You will definitely need a good setting powder with this one.This may be because this is a very non- drying sort of formula.
I do warn you: be careful putting this over certain blemishes and rough or dry skin. It will amplify those problem spots when used without primer or a thorough moisturizer.

I decided to purchase this foundation after reading all the great reviews. I ended up buying shade 300 for my NC 37-40 skin (for reference to those who want to know) and wore it to work for 9 hrs. It looked really good on me and the match was perfect. However, when i got home and took off the makeup, I noticed that my face had a bunch of tiny red dots all over. Even on my nose and my upper lip. The main cause of this... the foundation :( It was probably too rich for my skin and i tend to be very acne prone. I put a layer of sulfur overnight and this morning they were gone. I probably got some kind of allergic reaction and my skin did not take this very well. This foundation is going back.

I decided to try Maybelline Instant Rewind Radiant Firming Makeup because I felt it was time to give up the Bare Minerals and try something that would be more moisturizing and something that would not emphasize any fine lines I have (my skin is dry and prone to flaking from eczema but not sensitive to most products, I have fine lines on my forehead ("11s" and worry lines) and faint nasolabial lines that only show up when I'm wearing the wrong foundation). I also saw that it had very good reviews on MUA. I have to say that I love this foundation! It makes me look so much younger than the BE foundation did! I doesn't sink into fine lines and is moisturizing. My skin had a dewy and natural finish and the flakiness I have was not emphasized or made worse. My skin was looking radiant again! Someone was even stunned when I told her I was 32 - she thought I was in my 20s! The coverage is medium, but you could thin it out if you wanted more sheer coverage, or build it if you wanted more full coverage. It has lasted the day every time I've worn it (even in the gym). I have tried it both with and without powder to set and have tried a few methods to apply it. I feel a stippling or foundation brush works better than blending it in with fingers. It also has SPF, which is always a plus with foundation. The only thing I don't care for is the packaging. I think a pump or a bottle you could squeeze would be much better. All of this for under $10! I am so glad I tried this!

I wasn't sure which "Instant age rewind" foundation category to put this under but the picture matched my product, so there I go. This is my second bottle. My first was in creamy natural and a little too dark, but it worked in summer. My new bottle, which I bought today at walmart for under 7 dollars, is in the second lightest, buff beige. This is medium/full coverage and looks very natural. I also have Colorstay foundation, but I never understood the hype, it doesn't last or cover very well at all. This one on the contrary, does. It doesn't look like your wearing it and gives a smooth, flawless and natural finish. It also doesn't sink into pores or lines. I hope they don't discontinue it.

This is wonderful foundation. Is relatively heavy coverage and is not matte. But it covers most redness on me and stays in place all day. For the price, as good or better than some high end foundation. It makes me look better, not made up. It probably would work better with normal to dry instead of oily. I am MAC NW 20 and Buff Beige and Soft Ivory both seem like they work.

I am a middle-aged with acne-prone, combination skin. This is the best foundation I have found to date: full-coverage without appearing "masky," non-greasy, and long-lasting. Buff Beige is a perfect neutral shade for my PPP skin.

Affordable ~ around $7 at Bed Bath & Beyond
Comes in a glass bottle which I am not so thrilled about but I will overlook it because the foundation is great
Medium coverage that can be built up or you could even sheer it out by using a damp sponge
Perfect for normal/dry skin which I have ~ not too sure how it would work on an oily skin though
Lasting power is great ~ stays put the entire day with powder on top ~ looks just as fresh in the evening as it did in the morning
Removes easily with my Dove Beauty Bar and water
I'm a Mac NW20 and I have this in Buff Beige (perfect color match) ~ I don't think they had a huge selection of shades but it's worth a shot if you can find yours
Doesn't oxidise at all
It has an SPF ~ always good to have that in your foundation
If your on the hunt for a good basic foundation and your skin is on the dry side I would highly recommend Instant Age Rewind.

I have been using the same foundation for a year now (Almay Skin Stays Clear Foundation, which I love) but I recently went to a huge makeup sale, and seeing as they didn't have my normal foundation, I figured I'd try something new. I picked out the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, for no particular reason other than it seemed to be around the right colour for my skin tone. I got it in the shade Nude, which turned out to be slightly darker than my skin, but I can fix that with a powder.
Bottom line, I really like this foundation. It gives my skin a flawless finish, in between matte and duey I would say, and covers up blemishes really well!
-Staying power is good, not amazing, but as long as you finish with a powder it lasts all day for me.
-Really easy to apply, doesn't dry too fast.
-Doesn't leave you looking cakey.
-Didn't make me break out (As far as I know, but I will update if it does)
-Colour range isn't fantastic so some people might have trouble finding a good shade.
-Smells awful, but thankfully the smell goes away shortly after application.
All in all, I would definitely buy this foundation again, and again.

I'm already on my second bottle and soon to repurchase a third as I simply love this foundation. It's so creamy, blendable, provides medium coverage, and sets to a satiny matte finish. In terms of wear it lasts extremely well on my combination skin with an occasional blot and/or powdering required to my t-zone. I have not had any problems with clogged pores, breakouts, cakiness, oxidization, or the product sinking into fine lines or pores. It's been a long time since I have been this impressed by a foundation. I personally think the formula, coverage, and longevity of wear is awesome. The only negative is I personally not a fan of glass bottle. For reference I wear "Buff Beige" and in other brands I wear MAC NC15, Revlon Buff, L'Oreal N1, Almay Buff, and Cover Girl Classic Ivory. The colour is a perfect match to my fair complexion and quite neutral with no overpowering pink or yellow undertones.

LOVE this foundation! I have tried many foundations over the years - from expensive, on down, and this really works for me. Other foundations have either caused blemishes, oxidized, become cakey, or not enough coverage. Color match works for my skin tone which is fair/light, normal to dry. Best of all, NO breakouts what-so-ever! I will keep buying it as long as they make it.

Color selection isn't great, I'm very pale and the lightest shade was way too dark. I did like how easily this applied and how smooth it felt on my face. I also liked the soft glow it gave. Too bad they didn't have my shade.
