I used this foundation like 4 years ago when it first came out. It was my first EVER experience wearing foundation & I wore it for my debutante ball. I did my own makeup because we couldn't hire a MA & I was pretty proficient in makeup so I figured I was fine.
The coverage was medium, but it totally looked cakey. It was not a cute look. Good thing my professional pictures came out nice but some of my friends' pictures, I look craaaaazy. Whatever.
For such a thick ass foundation, you would think it would cover blemishes with no problem. Yeah NO. I probably went over the same blemish 5x & it just seemed to be wiping off whatever foundation that I did apply in the surrounding area.
By the end of the night, I literally could feel at least 3 HUGE ZITS coming in on my cheeks. I was freaking dumbfounded. I didnt think I would break out that quickly but when something sucks that bad, I guess time doesn't matter.
Do yourself a favor & skip out on this product especially those who are acne-prone, with sensitive skin, clogged pores, etc.

-didn't break me out
-good coverage (acne scars, redness, etc)
-jar packaging (boo...not as sanitary)
-color selection is a bit off/difficult for many...there are "gaps" in the shade range
-unusual consistency might not appeal to some
-can be trying to blend
-not for those with dry skin, as it accentuates every flake and is very drying
I have oily skin, and my neutral skintone can get away with wearing "light 2: classic ivory"...it's a bit peachy/pinky, but some yellow powder pushes it close enough to neutral for me to wear it (Ref: Estee Lauder DW = Linen, MAC SFF =NC15, Laura Mercier TM = nude, Sue Devitt = Tanami). Because I am oily, and because I happen to match one of the colors, this foundation works for me. It's easy and quick, the coverae is nice, and it wears really well on me in the summer heat. I find it blends best with fingers, and over moisturizer, as it is drying. The moisturizer helps with the blending too. Beware that this does set fast, and you may want to work in areas rather than on the whole face at once. All in all, a foundation that will appeal to some, but a definite love or hate type of product.
Also note that the product is made even harder to match since the color in the pot looks very dark/orange compared to when it is applied...be sure to purchase somewhere there is a good return/exchange policy!

It's smooth, very easy to blend in. it gives me velvet fresh skin. However, it's not very long lasting (4 hours the most). It's very easy to be removed. It's like an emergency thing, like going to meet your bf at late night and you don't want to look too horrible without MU. Never clog pores. You can use this as a tinted primer before the powder foundation, that's what I did wiht my Studio Fix

Impossible to blend, broke me out, gave me that sexy "caked look." Was very heavy to wear.

I bought this foundation for the first time 2 years ago and ive been buying it again, because i like the texture, i prefer mousse, stick foundation formula than liquid one, i guess because its more easy to apply.
Whit my oily skin, and its not oil free, but this kinda works well, i am afraid to try new foundations that break out my skin. Thats one of the reasons that i continue to purchase.
I like the fact that it has good coverage, the finish really its matte, so you apply less powder. What i didnt like is that in really hight temperature the makeup doesnt stay long, it melts. But its great for your every day makeup.
I hope Maybelline doesnt discontinue this foundation, i love the Matte Mousse line, quality products and affordable prices.

i LOVE this product.
- Feels smooth and creamy
- I haven't really smelled it but who cares? It's definitely not an awful smell
- I've been using this for the past 2 years
- Stays on well

This product completely broke me out all over my face, especially my cheeks. The coverage was decent, but felt heavy/greasy and I personally thought it looked cakey. It was gross-feeling in general, and i will never purchase this product ever again. To be fair, I also tried the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder, which wasn't too bad at all- unlike the mousse, which my skin is still recovering from.

It did not do anything for my skin except a little burning irritation. There was no coverage. Smell was so-so. My color range was too orange. Did not work for ME.

This product destroyed my face! I bought it on a whim at the drugstore and tried it the next day. I have combination skin, and it ended up causing me to break-out AND have huge patches of dry skin. At the same time. Spent the next couple of weeks trying to heal my skin. Definitely a "do not buy."

I had problems with finding a foundation that is the right colour for my skin and that stays on for longer than an hour or two. I found this in a store and decided to try it as it was a good brand name and was really cheap (£5) but also on a buy 3 for the price of 2 offer! So basically, it was really cheap and looked good when I tested it.
This foundation is amazing. It covers my face evenly which is difficult for most foundations I have used. It hasn't affected my skin at all and gives my skin a natural looking glow!
The only bad point, hence giving it a 4 instead of a 5 is that I would have liked the product to stay on for longer. Compared to other foundations, this stays on a bit longer but not a considerable amount of time more.
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this product to people that have problems finding a decent foundation as you won't be disappointed with this one!
