I actually don't care for this product as a foundation for my face as I can't find a good color match - but I LOVE it as a product to even out the skin tone on my chest. I am not consistent in my use of sunscreen on this area and so my skin is red, freckled and uneven. Each morning, after moisturizing (and sunscreen 75% of the time), I simply pat this foundation onto that area and it evens out the skin tone beautifully.

I liked the concept of the "mousse" and the texture, which bothers many other reviewers, is just fine by me. However, the color is awful! I tried for the lightest shade I could find, and it is both too dark and too yellow in tone. I have fair skin and red hair and it looks awful. Won't be trying this again.

This is possibly the worst foundation i've ever used. It goes on and feels almost fluffy on your face and ridiculously cakey. I tried this in about 4 shades and either way it was just awful. It clogged my pores and didn't do very well for my existing pimples. Just terrible, bigggg no.

I have particularly dry skin around my mouth and around my eye area. I tried a lot of liquid foundations, but I settled for Maybelline's Smooth Mousse because it is absolutely hydrating and natural looking!
-hydrating for dry skin
-doesn't seep into fine lines, wrinkles, and flakes
-looks really natural
-the color match was exact for me!
-light to medium coverage: covers redness and small spots
-dewy and light finish
-packaging...it's kind of unhygienic
I just apply it with a clean brush and buff it in, but I use my fingers to apply to red and flaky areas. I will definitely be buying this product over and over again!
*Edit: I found out I broke out because of this product. I think it's because the jar was so unhygienic and I had to keep dipping in there and that lead to bacteria:(( I really loved this product though!

My all time favorite foundation! This gives build able coverage and a natural finish. It lasts all day and I get so many compliments when I wear this . This is better than the nars radiant cream foundation!

My review on this foundation was that I didn't like it much at all, I brought this foundation since I saw many people wearing it, although I didn't like the product what so ever, I felt that it looked very cakey on my skin and also I didn't like the packaging it came in, I felt the small glass jar was rather heavy also I don't like how much product you get in the jar, the foundation life was very short however one thing I did like was the shade range.

I've tried so many foundations for my dry skin, and so far this is the best. It doesn't make my skin look flaky or ashy. All the other foundations would do this, even when my skin was smooth before applying the makeup. I've found that the best way to apply this product and get a smooth finish for dry skin is to dab it on with a damp beauty blender or one of its knock offs.
I was hoping for a dewy finish, like I've read from other reviews. But for me it's matte. Also, sometimes it acts like a cream to powder and other times it acts like a cream to liquid. I got this because reviewers mentioned that it doesn't turn to powder. I guess my skin is just weird. Maybe on my dryer days it sucks up more moisture from the product than it's supposed to. But despite these things, I still really like it. Even on it's powdery days it still doesn't cake up or flake on me.
I like the coverage. I'd say it's medium. It hides a lot of my redness and all of my light acne scars. When I had a couple darker acne scars it would tone them down a lot, but you could still see them. And it doesn't hide the few freckles I have at all. It makes my skin look better without making it look like a mask and you can't tell I'm wearing makeup at all. It's like if BareMinerals powder had a cream version formulated for dry skin!
The staying power is okay. It stays all day just as long as nothing touches my face. If I get an itch and lightly scratch or rub it will come off. It also gets on my phone.
I don't like the packaging. It's so bulky because of the sponge holder, which is unnecessary. If someone wants to use that sponge they can buy it separately. We get so little product for how bulky the packaging is. I'd rather have a really thin and sleek container that holds just the foundation so it wouldn't take up so much room in my purse or in the small drawer I store my makeup.

I wanted to like this. I bought one of these in Nude Beige, along with a Hot Tamale blush (also Maybelline). The packaging is awkward, as best. You have to unscrew the lid to get to the actual make-up. Then, you have to put the lid back on because you discover you need to figure out how to open the lid containing the foam applicator. All of that, and no mirror. How are you supposed to use this stuff?
But ok, ok. I was really wanting to like something about this. I applied it and got good coverage. But after putting the product on the sponge, I caught a whiff of the odd odor coming from it. I don't know what that was all about but decided that this stuff had too much against it for me to keep. I returned it for a full refund.
I'd like to add that when I clicked on the Add/Edit Review to put this up on our board here, it was sent back to me because I had selected 0 (zero) as the Packaging Quality score. As we are not allowed to use 0 for a score, I had to use 1. I guess the packaging it was in was better than a baggie.

This is a good foundation. Not amazing, not HG but not horrible. My mom brought this home one day and I've been trying it out. I have oily skin and this product was intented for normal to dry, however I feel that this would probably accentuate dry patches on dry skin. On first application it looked cakey as heck, so my trick when wearing this foundation is to apply all of my foundation and concealer and take a towel (one that you don't mind ruining, I have specific older ones for makeup purposes) and just blot the face careful not to rub. By doing this is takes away most of the cakeyness and within half an hour the rest of it fades. I still had visible contour and blush which is more than I can say for other foundations besides my colorstay. I keep trying to find a foundation that will stay on completely and keep my contour and blush throughout the day. This did so for a good 6 to 7 hours at work, but I had to reapply before going out so not too bad. It has a nice natural finish which is what I wanted for spring, not too matte but oil controlling and definitely not dewy but had a little shine in places I wanted to. I find it breaks up in the corners between my eyes and nose bridge oily area that I usually have but it's not too bad. The packaging, well I don't use the top compartment so I would've appreciated less bulkiness. All in all good foundation, but I don't find it's HG. But it has it's place in my collection. I think I would take it again if my mom gets another for me at some point but I wouldn't spend my money on this. Overall, not the worse foundation at the drugstore and may be the best to some.

This has become my HG foundation. It is light but not overly sheer coverage, which is exactly what I needed. It evens out my skin and covers up some slight redness that I get on my chin. It feels very light and breathable, blends in nicely, and can be built up a bit where needed. I use Porcelain Ivory in the winter months and Classic Ivory in the summer when my neck and chest get a little darker. Both shades look natural and well-matched on me. The price is very affordable and one jar tends to last me for about 6 months. I swap out the applicators with fresh ones as needed. The packaging and the fact that it's cream and not liquid makes it easy to use when traveling too. I haven't had any skin irritation or breakouts from it, but I'm not prone to those.
