Let me start off by saying I've tried dozens of foundations. From high end, to drugstore and the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse has been my favorite for years. But I've been hearing rumors that it's being discontinued [not happy about this]. Anywaysss so I figured I'd try something new. I picked this one up on a whim and let me tell you...I LOVE this foundation! I have very dry, sensitive and fair skin. I typically use a primer, but find that with this foundation, as long as my skin is clean, exfoliated and moisturized, a primer is not needed! It seriously makes my skin look flawless and lasts all day. Now...crossing my fingers that Maybelline doesn't decide to discontinue this one.

I want to start by saying that Instant Age Rewind Radiant Firming Makeup is discontinued & its replacement is Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Makeup. Anyway, I have this foundation in the shade Caramel Dark 2 & it's the perfect match. The first time I wore it, I thought it was horrible & I almost pitched it in the trash. I felt I was wearing a mask because it was so thick & heavy; I could tell I had something on my face. It's offers full coverage & unfortunately, it caked on my skin. It took me a few wears to get it looking & feeling better on my skin. I found out less is more when it comes to this because of its consistency. It's very thick & it covers dark spots & acne spots regardless of whether or not I decide to use a concealer. Even though I finally got it to work, I don't wear it often because of the satin finish. I have only skin & a matte or natural finish is what I need. I think this is a good enough foundation. The only cons are the finish (if you have oily skin) & the fact that I have to pour it—there's no pump.

I bought this one on classic ivory which a bit darker than my skin tone nw 15-20. but I am not
really worried since the quality of this foundation is really good. it gives a dewy finish &
has light reflecting formula that make my face radient & healthy.
the only thing I did not like is the packing it is a glass bottle with no dispenser

I'm 16 and have acne prone, combination to oily skin naturally but due to the fact that I use acne treatments containing salicylic acid my skin can become dry and I find that this foundation works wonderfully with my skin. I use a primer first and then apply the product evenly all over my face using a damp beauty blender for best results.

Pros:
Good color selection
Blendable
Medium to buildable coverage
Evens out skin tone flawlessly
Doesn't feel heavy
Isn't cakey
Has a nice dewy finish
Doesn't need to be touched up much

Cons:
Packaging

Overall I really love this product. It's my favorite drugstore foundation mainly because it does NOT break me out at all!

I Love this foundation, I always go back to this I always get
complements And I do not have to spend $50.oo bucks
on makeup, I like this better than Estee Lauder, the same
company's make this foundation, your just paying for the name.

I just purchased this yesterday (10/9/13) and used it for the first time today. So far I love it, along with the 2 other Maybelline foundations I own (Matte Mousse & Dream Liquid Mousse). I like them all as well as higher end foundations. This one goes on really smooth and dries to a nice, soft finish. I am 49 now, so have "aging" skin, so a nice foundation for me, but this might not work as well on younger, oilier skins. We all know products work differently on everyone, so it's just a "try it and see" kind of thing, but for me I really like this one!

When I first tried this, I thought ugh.. too heavy. shows up on my skin. Plus, I got buff biege, which has a bit of yellow undertone, so I thought it might look good on my skin. But, when I put it on, it felt too light. I was going to chuck it.

Then, I saw a video on youtube about by the makeup artist Wayne Goss about using a wet sponge (where you've squeezed out the extra water) to apply makeup - especially heavier, drier or creme makeup. So, I thought.. why not give that a try before chucking it. And so I tried it. Oh my god.. it looked so nice. What a difference. By wetting the sponge, then squeezing it out, it keeps the sponge from absorbing all the makeup, but the sponge gives you a smoother look, and you can build in the areas you need more coverage.

So, I like this very much when I use a wet sponge to apply it. It gave me good coverage without looking like too much. I am fair, reddish hair, over 50, with a bit of rosacea. Because I have some rosacea, I do use 2 shades. I dab the sandy beige on my cheeks and use the buff beige elsewhere - around eyes and elsewhere, and the sponge to blend. That way, my rosacea is blended to my real skin tone which ends up matching my neck. Looks good.

A pump would be more hygenic, and easier to apply.. but hey, I can make do with the bottle.
I would buy again. And I will use the wet sponge again for any makeup I find a bit heavy to apply by hand. Good way to get coverage, without a too heavy madeup look.

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.
