I HATE this foundation, it feels so gross on my skin, and when I go out side the coloring looks weird.. When I first applied it I thought wow this actually looks pretty good, but once I got to school I noticed how ugly it really look and how bad it felt. Plus the worst thing about it is, Maybelline TEST ON ANIMALS! Theres no reason makeup should be tested on animals thats soo wrong. Please buy products that are not tested on animals. For example: MAC makeup. (:

Despite the negative reviews, I really enjoy using this product. It's very light coverage - which suits me because I'm very lucky to have reasonably clear skin - but if you want full or even medium coverage, I wouldn't recommend this to you.
When I first purchased this, I bought it in Classic Ivory, which usually matches my skin well. This looks just a tad orange for Classic Ivory, though how it looks in the container is very different on my face. Also, a friend of mine has very porcelain skin and purchased this, and the lightest shade is very orange on her. I'd only recommend this to people with neutral or warm undertones - and no one with very porcelain skin.
I usually use this less as a foundation and more as a concealer, for dark undereye circles and the occasional blemish. It works great to this end, but as a foundation, I'm not as sure.

This foundation is horrible. If you get it applied just right, it looks really nice. But it is so easy to apply way too much and end up looking really cakey. Also, it caused me to break out horribly and the color was all wrong. I will not buy this again or recommend it to anyone.

nooooot buy this EVER again. Cakes, accentuates dry spots, no coverage. I got two shades from bogo and one is too yellow and the other one too pink. Now I'm taking this and mixing it with moisturizer to make tinted moisturizer. That seems to be going well though

ok so i needed a new foundation to try out cus my growing makeup addiction so called for it :-) so i bought this stuff. took it home, put it on yaddah yaddah. the first thing i noticed was how soft and smooth it felt on my fingertips. (yay!) so then to TRULY put it to the ultimate test, i went about my day. (it was very hot out btw. :p) everytime i went to 'check' on my makeup to make sure it was holdin up okay, i had to touch it up. about 8 different times. (im sorry thats one too many times for meee :p) and the WORST and might i add most EMBARRASSING thing about this makeup is that when i pulled away from giving my best friend a hug, there was my makeup juss hangin out on his WHITE shirt. this makeup transfers WAYY too easily for my liking. :p it was cakey-looking. it 'cracked' too easily. (i guess cus i make so many facial expressions lol ;] ) and idk it juss wasn't worth what i paid at all.
i will not buy this ever again. :p

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation. At first it's kind of expensive for a drug store foundation but it is really worth it considering the quality. I have normal to dry skin with occasional acne and I also have dark circles underneath my eyes. I don't even need to use concealer when I use this foundation. I'm a light three and it matches my skin perfectly, it's a pretty light color with a pink undertone. I apply this with my fingers and I barely need to blend at all, its sooo easy. Since it's matte it can highlight dry spots a little bit, so you really need to make sure you moisturize before putting it on. I would not recommend this for people who have really dry skin or for people who need a lot of coverage.

I really thought I'd like this product but completely changed my mind. I can't wear this in the summer time, when I sweat, the foundation leaves my face somehow so there are little dots all over my nose. I also look really pastey, maybe I got the wrong color or something.

I may give this another try if I find a store with testers.

Came all clumped up, with half the tub stuck to the inside of the lid. Nice light texture but it settles immediately in my pores. I didn't even know I had some of the pores that look like craters with this foundation on! Also absolutely no coverage over redness, bruises, even pimples despite being so thick. And finally, it comes off all day long if you touch your face or blow your nose. And that's even with using a sponge to buff it in before leaving for the day. So I can't imagine anyone this would be good for, except maybe perfect 18-yr old models.

Used to be my ultimate favorite foundation before I discovered L'oreal true match liquid foundation, but I still adore this foundation and use it a lot. It is the prefect match for me and my shade is 2.5 medium. Most drug store product look too pinkish on me because I am olive skin tone, but this one is perfect!! I stipple it on using a very dense kabuki brush and I adore the result, very airbrushed natural look. The only down side is that I feel that it does not last, but I still like it a lot.

I've been using this foundation for over a year and I really like it. It can give light, natural coverage if you use a small amount of product, but it's also buildable to full, flawless coverage without looking cakey. It photographs well and doesn't make me look white-faced, and has a really good range of shades. The only drawbacks for this product are that it doesn't last particularly well in hot weather and can tend to sit slightly on the surface of the skin if you don't blend it in well (however, this is only noticeable if you look really closely). The packaging also isn't the most hygienic, but I really can't think of another way they could package this because of it's mousse texture. For these reasons, I give it a 4 out of 5, and I'll continue to buy and use it.
