Hrmph. I thought I was on to something and had FINALLY found my perfect summer foundation. WRONG! For a while, it wasn't too bad- granted it made my nose even oilier than usual and I couldn't re-apply very well without making my face look red. Then I started breaking out- at first I thought it was hormones, but it turns out other women share this problem too. The concept is nice, and it feels great when you first put it on, but after a couple of hours it just sucks. It's made me break out, and doesn't help with oil at all. I still have some of the pot left, I only use it under my eyes and around my lips for when I apply lipstick/eyeliner. Otherwise I will not be buying again.

Hmmm...what to say about this one...well for starters, it covers okay, and blends great, but it TOTALLY rubs off. It's amazing how well this stuff will totally transfer to any surface, like you don't even have to rub, just press a tissue against your forehead and you'll have a perfect square of foundation on the tissue. And if its not rubbing off your face, it'll totally be sliding off by itself around 9 a.m. HORRIBLE!!!!!

I was very pleasantly surprised by how good this product worked out for me. It feels creamy when applying it and it blended out great using a sponge. Not so great when using a foundation brush though. It covered any discoloration evenly. The only down side is that now that I've been using it for a while (just about 20% left in the pot) it is starting to dry up a bit so it is not so creamy anymore. But I do recommend this as a good cheap drugstore alternative.

I bought this because it was all anyone was talking about. The lightness of it, the lovely packaging & the softness 'marshmallowey' texture of the foundation. The price isn't bad either so it went over to superdrug & picked a pot of this foundation in 'light ivory'. I practically ran home to try it out & was pleased with how it glided on to my face. But (& yes there is a but) i could feel the stuff on my face & when i looked in my mirror in natural (outside) light, although the colour match was good, you could tell i had make up on & one of my friends commented on it saying 'you're wearing more make up than usual becca' oooer :S i think i'll be steering clear of it. Plus it gave me spot breakouts. So i don't think i'd buy it again.

the idea of this is great if it actually worked. it sat on my face and made my pores looks like craters. and then it dried my skin up and made it oily at the same time. i had patches all over my face. ew, no thanks maybelline

I was pleasantly surprised about this product. If I had read the MUA reviews before purchasing this, I don't think I would have purchased it! I bought the palest shade (Ivory Light 1). I have trouble finding foundation in the right shade, and this seemed to work very well without looking ghostly. I have some small acne scars on my cheeks and this foundation glides smoothly over them- making them almost disappear! Make sure your skin is WELL moisturised- preferably after a scrub and then prime, prime, prime. It makes the mousse glide on so much better.
You HAVE to make sure you prep your skin before putting this foundation on- otherwise it will pick up and emphasise every flake or dry patch.
That is my only criticism on this product- it is not completely flawless, and does pick up on dry or uneven skin.
So make sure you moisturise and prep plus exfoliate regularly and I think you will adore this product. One more tip- spray with Mac's Fix+ to take off the Matte effect and make your skin look a little bit healthier with a radiant glow.

Greasy, cakey, and I couldn't stop from looking orange! I wanted to like this product so badly that I bought 3 different shades trying to diminish the orange pigmentation, but nope.

This product gives a very smooth finish but it rubs off way too fast and doesn't give good coverage. I'm a fan of maybelline foundation but this one is one of my least favorite.

I had the good fortune to use this product both before and during acne treatment, so I was able to experience exactly what this covers.
First, a little goes a loooooong way. A little smear about the size of my pinky nail is enough to cover under each eye.
This is great for undereye circles, or purpley looking tired eyelids, or any sort of unevenness. If you apply it correctly, it settles in and looks pretty natural. It works really well on unblemished skin that has a few acne scars, freckles, circles, discoloration...anything FLAT.
Unfortunately, this seemed to slide off my acne. I had to first apply it to the blemished area, blot with powder, and then apply concealer over it on my worst acne. It also tended to stick to the flakier skin. One pro for acne prone skin was that it didn't make me break out more.
I'll continue using this on my clear skin days, but will need to use something else when I'm broken out.
