Ehhhh, I hated this foundation. It looks super cakey on me and it makes me oil up so fast.. It has a weird scent to me. It just moves around my face, it does NOT stay in place. Threw it away >.<

Honestly this has worked for me for over a year. Yes in the being it would break out but my face adjusted. Its covers very nicely including liquid and powder but does last as long as i wanted. I recommenced just to use for school or for quick days you don't want to wear so much make-up. In the end its a matter of adjusting to it which you shouldn't do.

I purchased this in shade 220 which was a great match for my NC 30 skin. I would say it had light to medium coverage and looked pretty natural. I bought this to use on the weekends, for light coverage. I knew that it would not have great staying power. It defintiley doesn't control oil. I think this would be best for someone with normal to dry skin. The bad thing about it is it caused me to break out in a face full of tiny pimples. I couldn't see them until I washed my face. My whole face was red and bumpy. I obviouldy had an allergic reaction to this foundation. This has never happened to me before. I would make sure you read the ingredients to see if you are allergic to something in it. I am not sure what I am allergic to, but I will never use this again.

I usually use Maybelline dream satin liquid foundation as they do light porcelain which is good for my pale skin, but I saw this and wished to try it, although the only shade I could find for this product was 120 which was a shade too dark for my skin tone but it has good coverage and when set with powder lasts all day. It's good value for money and works well for normal skin.

I was really excited when i found that foundation on sale since i had heard some great reviews about it. When i tried it .... I felt really disappointed ... The packaging is very nice especially for a drugstore product, comes in a glass bottle with a pump and with a black lid on top feels very classy and substantial . Unfortunately i dont have any more possitive things to say about that foundation... Has a nice slippery creamy texture, glides on the skin effortless and blends very easily . The coverage is good, fot sure is not a full coverage foundation, but you can easily build it to a light-medium coverage . My main problem is that the consistency of this foundation is very oily. It doesnt feel particularly rich or greasy but it never dries or sets on the skin feels very unstable on the skin and highlights my pores and fine lines and keep in mind that my skin is more on the dry side . When i try to set it with powder the brush gets wet from the foundation and locks the surface of the powder .... Am i going to repurchase?? No ! For sure no ! I ll try to use it again during the winter months when my skin is even drier .

I bought this in 110 Porcelain. I have pale skin and it's so hard to find a liquid/powder that matches my tone and doesn't make my face look darker than the rest of my body. I also have combination skin, which adds to the frustration. This liquid foundation is "okay." I don't like the dewy/liquid chalk feeling it leaves on my skin, and if I have any dry patches, it shows up flaky. The only saving grace is that it matches my tone and it cooperates on good days when I put Ivory Shine Free Pressed Powder over it to give it a finished, matte look. The price isn't bad, I think I picked it up for about five bucks. I wouldn't really recommend this product and the only time I would buy it again is if another liquid foundation is out of stock. I also wouldn't recommend the 110 Fit Me powder over this foundation. I tried it and it made my face darker than my body.

I bought this foundation as i was looking for an everyday wear, for medium coverage and to look quite natural. as i have an oily nose and fore head i wanted something that would stay on for 5-6 hours minimum.
I bought this foundation in number 115- ivory costing £7.99
i used Mac prep+ prime and a foundation brush to apply.
as soon as i put it on my skin it was too dark and clung to every bit of dry skin on my face looking patchy and generally not nice.
the following day i went into boots to swap this foundation for something better.
the manager suggested i should try getting my colour tested at the No7 counter, where i bought my second No7 foundation, choosing this time the stay perfect liquid foundation in calico. i was much happier with this. for the

I bought this foundation in the Classic Ivory, and I'm just appalled at this foundation. Literally, five minuets after I applied this foundation it began to separate on my face. I
have extremely oily skin, and I use De-slick setting spray, before I put on foundation along MAC Mattefying Gel, over it. So, I know that my skin was not oily at all. Also, the shade was too dark, and it was the lightest color on the shelf. And, it is just an over all mess when applied. So, I took the product back to the store. I'm more than happy to use the Revlon Color Stay for combo to oily skin.

I always check online to see a review on any product that I am going to buy, especially makeup. There were many bad reviews about this foundation but i thought I'd give it a shot. When I first applied it I thought it was the worst foundation ever. It didn't blend and it emphasized every pore,line etc on my face. But then i was thinking if this is a bare/natural type of foundation i should apply it with my fingers and without anything on my skin. IT WORKS AMAZINGLY!!!!! This foundation works good if you apply all your moisturizers and creams like 20 minutes before and you let them really sink in to your skin. Then when your face is completely dry apply it with clean hands and it just looks flawless. It also works nice with a beauty blender. Coverage is light to medium. I love the shades. I'm a 210. Apply powder and/or a setting spray and it should last you a long time. The packaging is nice. I personally don't like foundations to have a pump because i feel like you waste a lot of product. ( because of the straw thingy)

But like all Maybelline products - if you have oily skin - forget it.
I blamed my skin for a long while until I figured out that Maybelline ingredients is the reason my foundation "melts" off by lunch hour.
Good color range, nice bottle, can be found at a good price.

I used to wear Lancome's Teint Idole before they changed the formula. Since the new formula didn't work out for me, I had to look for a new foundation. I tried the nars liquid foundation and it turned out to be too greasy and shiny. I also tried MAC and it felt too heavy. This one was just perfect. It's lightweight, perfect colour match, and the cheap price is just the cherry on the cake. It also doesn't have harsh odours/perfumes.
Definitely try this one out. I highly recommend it!

I bought this because it was on sale and I like to save money. I'm not usually picky on foundation. I've been using Rimmel Clean Finish for 2 years now since it's cheap and it worked for me. I just found that I needed to try something new.
I was disappointed by this, and if I read the reviews before I bought it I wouldn't have. It's feels oily. I don't have bad skin, and I rarely get pimples, but I like looking poreless and matte, and this foundation did not do that at all. It does not last and when I come back from being outside my face looks horrible. I'm tan and this foundation made my face look orange as it started wearing off. Not impressed at all.
The packaging is really nice and it looks like high-end almost. I wish it had a pump though, but seeing as it wasn't great at all, the pump wouldn't have fixed it for me.
Please don't buy this.

I'm 21, and this is my first foundation, no joke. I love beauty and skincare, but I always associated foundation with a number of unwanted affects like clogged pores and that look of obviously wearing makeup. I'm prone to acne so I was never interested in foundation for that reason also. Mostly all I use is a concealer with salicylic acid in it. I know you're supposed to use it on spots but I always ALWAYS use it on my whole face. So it's funny that I'm willing to drop around 5 or 6 dollars on concealer but when I see a $12 1 oz. bottle of foundation I'm like, "That's expensive!" Silly. So I see this for $5.99 at Meijer and I try it on in the Maybelline aisle. Of course makeup always looks different depending on the factor, I just like to get first impressions cus if it's bad enough I'll put a product back. I avoid products with fragrance if I can, but this foundation smelt so good! At the time.. That's like the only positive tho, cus it is a "5.99 for 1 oz" kind of foundation. Practically every reviewer said this made them oily.. that didn't happen to me. But it sorta felt like I was applying a liquid-powder and in the end it looked that way. Places that could be dry were. Especially the skin around the corners of my mouth, and my nose. Goodness my nose looked horrible upclose! I mean I fell asleep in the stuff and didn't wake up with any acne at least. Applied the stuff again and same thing happened. Dry spots. Plus now it smells like baby wipes as opposed to the indescribable scent from yesterday. The foundation does leave my face velvety soft though, and it's easy to blend like up in your hairline or close to your eyes without tugging and pulling at your skin. Would not buy the product again though, I was pretty much looking for a foundation exactly like the concealer I use (which is Almay clear complexion). Packaging quality, 4, because it looks expensive and it's a bottle you wanna have out. Plus you can reuse it forever, no need to throw it away. There's just no pump and that is sort of annoying. Price, 1, dirt cheap. Overall rating, 3, as in okay. And according to mua, this foundation's average is average. I may get the Almay clear complexion liquid foundation and hope that it's a 1 oz. version of their concealer.

I love the formulation of this product and I think it feels light on the skin, while giving a decent amount of coverage. The only reason I gave this 3 lippies is because I can't find my correct shade! Always becomes more orange after application, but other than that I like this product and would buy again if I could find the correct shade for my skin tone.

I'm really sorry for the people who had a poor time with this foundation. Objectively, I think this is a good foundation.
Eminent makeup artist Lisa Eldridge says there are three things to check when testing foundation to see if it'll be a good match: Texture, Colour and Coverage.
Formulation and Texture: Is it water based, oil based? How much silicone does it contain? Is it suitable for normal-dry combination skin or is for normal-oily combination skin?
Colour: Does the foundation match the skin of the wearer? Which undertones of colour is it suited for- pink, neutral, yellow, red or brown? Is it a realistic shade that represents skin colour?
Coverage and Lasting Power: How much coverage does the wearer want? Keep in mind that foundation is designed to even out skin tone and minor imperfections. Concealer is used for more prominent imperfections. How long does the foundation last before it fades?
Those who did get to revel in the pleasures of this foundation were quite unlucky to fall outside the broad net of people who would have found this foundation to check all the boxes for the three qualities above.
The foundation is suited for people with normal to dry combination skin, skin that is not moist with oil or sebum but maybe slightly parched though not too flaky, with has a layer of moisturiser, primer or any other emollient or silicone product that covers the face to form a base or matrix on which the foundation can adhere to. A bare face is fine but the finish of the foundation depend on the smoothness of the face of the wearer.
The foundation is generally unsuitable for oily skin- unless products have been sued to dry the skin out. Silicone based primers and setting powders may not be enough for oily skin. There are far better foundations for oily skin than this foundation can offer.
Colour: The shades ending in '0' are designed to have yellow undertones and those ending with '5' are designed to have pink undertones. In reality, the entire set of foundation will better cater for people whose predominate skin undertone is yellow or neutral, 0 for the yellows and 0 or 5 for the neutrals. Those with a mixture of pinks, reds and browns in their skin may find the foundation strange- too yellow, too orange, too ashy, too light or too dark. Disappointingly, but not surprisingly the foundation has limited shades for skin that is genuinely dark.
To reiterate: the colour of this foundation will suit light, medium or lightly dark skin with predominate undertones of neutral or yellow shades. As darker skinned folks out there will know- dark skin often can often be a add mixture of several strong undertones of colours- not just yellow, so the foundation will be quite disappointing for many with dark skin.
Coverage- this foundation offers light to medium coverage with great buildability. Lasting power is great anywhere between 6-8 hours without too much fading provided your skin is more normal-dry combination. Setting powder may maximise the lasting power. Take care with skin flakes, any foundation- even this one will enhance flakes- though this one performs quite well here too.
To use: pour a very small amount on the back of the hands, and using a finger buff in circular motions till the foundation blends and disappears into the skin. Start at the centre of the face or the parts of the face where most coverage is needed. If blended into a thin, thin layer the foundation dries with ease and no setting powder is required. It leaves a dewy, albeit shiny finish to the skin, even though the skin is not oily- just shiny with it. I prefer mattifying with a light amount of powder.
With one thin layer, skin tone is evened out. To even trained eyes- it maybe difficult to discern that you are wearing foundation- except the skin maybe a little more shiny. You may choose to apply a second layer if desired in the same manner as the first layer and you'll have a nearly medium flawless coverage- wear you can just tell there is a hint of foundation to the skin.
A tip the Eldridge uses often is to apply a thin well blended layer fo the entire face. As our gaze often fall onto the eyes and cheeks of face, instead of the chin and forehead, flawless coverage in the areas of the eyes and cheeks create an optical illusion that this entire canvas of the skin is more flawless than it seems. If there are no major problems with this chin and forehead (your could still use concealer), apply a second, very fine layer under the eyes and on the cheeks. You'll look flawless.
The secret to this foundation- and perhaps to most foundations- is to apply a light well blended and if necessary and suitable, add light thin layers where required. For any foundation- it will make the coverage more seamless, natural and most importantly- it will make the foundation set to last much longer. Do not slap a thick layer over the face and hope it sets- even for dry skin it will slip off.
Good Luck- the review is too long but I hope I've helped!

I do like it. I'm #310 and the texture of the product it blends in very nicely into my skin; it does just what it's name is - It doesn't mask, it fits. It's just that i have to really wash my fingers and hands every time I apply it to avoid random tan smudges on my clothes. But I love it! i can't see myself buying any other foundation for awhile.

I got this product for my birthday and got the shade 305. This shade seemed perfect at first but when applied to my face it looked orange and cakey and when I applied it with a brush it looked bad, a beauty blender it looked bad and with my fingers it looked bad... I just don't know how to work with it.

I found this foundation ok, expected more really. I have the shade 225 which is a really good match to my skin but just not enough coverage. Saying that I do like the consistency of this foundation but not alot of staying power throughout the day defiantly need a touch up.
