This was one of the very first foundations that I tried, and I used it for years. I remember thinking it was sooo good, mostly because of the beautiful finish it gives. I still think the finish is great, it looks natural and dewy and definitely makes pores less visible. However, that is pretty much it for the positives, as I realised its flaws more and more after trying other and better foundations.
First of all, the color choice is not great. I always used the color "Ivory", as it was the lightest color I could find (I'm Mac NW13 - NW15), but I have realised it is too orange for me. Right before I stopped using this foundation I found a lighter color which was called something with Porcelain, which was a better fit, but too pink for my skin. Anyways, the main problem is that no matter what color you choose, the foundation will oxidize like crazy, leaving you with a completely orange face. So embarrased I didn't realize this before, people must have been wondering what the heck I was thinking!
Also, the staying power is not good, most of it is gone by the end of the day. My skin is quite dry, but I do get an oily T-zone after a while. This foundation however, made me think I had a serious oil problem as it made my face an oil slick within the hour, and I was always blotting and powdering to keep it under control.
Thinking about it now I can't believe I stuck with this foundation for so long! Definitely a good idea to look around for a while before settling for a foundation I think... Anyways, I give it two lippies just because of the nice finish initially, and the fact that it did not irritate or break out my sensitive skin.
Oh, and if anyone wonders, the foundations I now prefer are Estee Lauder Double Wear (Ecru), Mac Studio Fix Fluid (NW13, sometimes NW15) and Collection 2000 Naturally Radiant (in Vanilla, my best color match to date).

This product is OK. I am quite pale and the lightest shade is so orange which is not good. It doesn't last that long but the coverage is great. I would not buy it again xxx

This is defiantly my go to foundation. My skin gets a bit dry and this is great for dryish skin. Makes my skin feel silky smooth would recommend this to anyone.

I think those with dry skin will enjoy this foundation. It's lightweight and it blends well. the coverage is light to medium. I have a combo skin and it last a decent time but I always have to powder. So if your skin is dry give it a go, otherwise not the best choice. I have to say i like the fact that it came with a pump.

The best foundation I owned so far. It gives perfect cover of all imperfections, skins looks so smooth and natural. Although it covers it gives fresh and light feeling. Also, you don't need a lot of foundation (for daily make - up I usually use 1 pump per cheek and half of it for forehead using foundation brush) so 1 bottle is for about 4- 4.5 months. However, I should agree that after about 5 hours you have to refresh your make- up as foundation tends vanish

I originally bought this product in Fawn 40,and then again in Cameo 20, and I found it fairly sticky and oily, which worked fine for my dry skin. The pump is good, however, it does get all over your hands and anything you touch after you've applied it which is really messy and inconvenient.
For me it stayed on well, and worked fine for awhile. I think the trick depends on your skin type; if you have oily or even normal skin, it will slide right off after a couple hours, but if you have dry skin, it will absorb right in and stay for awhile. It gives fairly good coverage but has a pretty sticky and a bit heavy feel to it, which I personally don't like very much.
Overall, worth it if you want a cheap, okay foundation. I would buy it again if I really couldn't find anything better.

When I first put this product on I thought it felt really nice and silky, but within an hour of wearing it had migrated onto the scarf I was wearing and the collar of my coat. I also got comments that I was looking tired...which I often get when I am wearing no foundation, and sure enough most of it had come off. Felt nice at first, shame it did not stick on my face.
I have since found Collection 2000's lasting prefection. Its a new product which is absolutely brilliant and only £3.99. I have fair, combination skin, which is muture. I wanted something that moisturised, but didnt break me out, and lasted all day. This ticks all the boxes and feels weightless but gives good coverage, and looks like my skin but better!

After about a year of using this product I“ve realised that it actually might not be the most suitable for my combination skin. It sure looks natural , blends in nicely and doesn“t cause break outs either, but after about 2 hours of applying the T-zone gets very shiny and after 8h there“s no trace of foundation left on your face whatsoever. Overally i“ts not a bad product but it would probably work best for the dry-ish skin type.

I was disappointed with this product as after reading good reviews I thought it would be great.I found it quite oily and see through and after about 2 three hours had slid off and i looked super greasy,would prob be o.k for dry skin.also I like a good coverage and this is a very sheer foundation unless you are blessed with perfect skin i would go for something with more coverage.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I love this foundation, simply because its the closest shade I've ever found!
Like most foundations it's finish relies on how you apply it, I've found the best ways to apply this foundation are:
Wet Make-up sponge (any kind that is soft, gives me a medium coverage and takes the most pumps usually 4 or 5)
Wet beauty blender (although it gives a sheer coverage, takes 2-3 pumps)
Stippling brush (Gives me fullest coverage using 2-3 pumps but can sometimes look cakey depending on how dry my skin is).
I usually don't use moisturizer before I put my foundation on, instead I use a non-greasy anti-wrinkle serum or a water based primer, this gives me the longest possible wear. I also always set my foundation with a translucent finishing powder using a powder puff then tapping off excess with a 'powder brush'.
I hope this has helped !

This is just an awful foundation in my opinion I have oily skin and it just made me look oiley and cakey I don't know maybe it would better for people with dry skin
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
I have dry skin and fair skin as well so finding a foundation is a difficult task! But I am so happy that I found this foundation!!
It applies very nicely and it does not stick to my dry spots so far. I have the colour Ivory 010 which is the lightest shade. It looks dark in the bottle and when you put a blob on your hand it would look really dark, but don't fear! As soon as I started t blend it in the colour looks absolutely perfect on me! It has a pink undertone for me which is just what I needed! I am so tired of getting a foundation and later in the day you look like a pumpkin!!
The packaging makes it look a lot more expensive according to my opinion and it having a pump is a real bonus! If you push it in all the way you can maybe get to much product, but you can also press it in slightly too just get a tiny bit extra if needed.
It also feels very light on my skin. It doesn't feel like you are wearing a mask even when you barely put anything on your face!
Go ahead and try it!

I bought this product because when I saw the advert I thought it sounded really nice. However though it does look nice on at first, I found that even the lightest touch to your face and the makeup is coming off. My hands get covered in this makeup throughout the day and so do my clothes which looks terrible. I would not buy this product again, it is so poor at staying on your face. I use primer before foundation and powder to set and I know both work well with all of my other foundations.

First I really enjoyed this product. But after a while I noticed that it left my skin looking very uneven/blouchty and flakey at some parts. I found it quite hard to blend in nicely with my stippling brush. The coulor selection wasn't too good either, unfortunately. Overall not very impressed with this foundation.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
I like this foundation, it's easy to apply and remove, and makes my skin look bright and dewy, even when I'm tired.
You don't have to use a lot and there is quite a lot in the bottle so it's good value :)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation. I bought it after I watched the advert of it and didn't read the reviews of it.
I was quite surprised because it looked great on my face. It gave pretty good coverage.
What I didn't like is that it doesn't last long. After about 4 hours it was slipping off my face so that was disappointing.
I should add I do put on primer before I put my foundation on.
Overall, for what you're paying for this foundation, I think it's pretty good.

I use this as an everyday foundation, but also as a going-out foundation. It works well for both uses! I have it in ivory, which is a good colour for my skin tone, but it can look a bit orange. I bought it for ten euro, which is a great price for this foundation in my opinion. It offers good coverage, but is quite light, so it doesn't cover redness very well. I wear a blue/green concealer under it to cover any redness. The packaging is great, not easily breakable and the pump is very handy. Great all-round product for a great price!

Love love love this foundation! When I first bought it I really didn't like it, but I recently re-discovered it and love it. I would say it adds a light-medium coverage, but it does blur imperfections well. It leaves a really nice finish on the skin which would appeal to all skin types (maybe except very dry, as it could cling to dry patches, I wouldn't know however as i have oily skin), its a 'satin' finish as the name states! A bit glowy but not too oily and mattifying in the right areas. It doesn't last all day on me, but I do not use a primer with it, and as it wears off, it wears off very naturally. It has never turned patchy on me or collected on my skin, it just slowly wears off towards the end of the day, but I'm sure this could be avoided with a primer. Its super cheap as well, give it a try :)

I use this foundation a lot for shows and I have to admit, it's not the best one I've had. I use the colour "Sand" as my skin is quite light. I probably wouldn't buy this foundation again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
After reading some reviews about this foundation, I wanted to give it a try. And I'm glad I did. I use 04 fawn and it matches my skin nicely, giving it a nice glow and making it look healthy. Stays on for a long time and overall I consider it a very nice foundation from Maybelline (a brand which sometimes comes out with very lousy products). Just a small amount will do the trick, covers well yet doesn't cake. Will definitely buy again.
