I have super oily skin that is also acne-prone. I work 12 hour shifts and this stuff lasts without breaking down or fading. At the end of the shift, my face won't be an oil slick but look slightly dewy and nice. The coverage is amazing! Covers my old acne scars pretty well. Obviously, this isn't for someone who has dry or flaky skin, hence the word "matte" in the product name for those with oily skin. I have some flakies on the sides of my nose and they are made more noticeable with the foundation. I wear Light #4 and it's a perfect match for my skin with yellow undertones. I wear MAC C25, Illuminare Florentine Fair, and I'm blanking on the other shades right now. I just apply with my fingers and I will repurchase again.

I have been on a two-month long search for my HG foundation and this, while I wouldn't say it's HG, is the best I have tried so far including some department store brands. I have oily acne prone skin and this makes my skin look so soft and it hasn't broken me out and I've been wearing it on and off for a month now. I put a light dusting of powder over it only because I am so oily and it holds up better throughout the day than any foundation I have ever tried. I wear Classic Ivory and it is a perfect match to my light olive colored skin. It has been such a long search to find something that doesn't sink into my pores, separate on my skin, or slide off my face. I have literally been in tears over my face lately and this is the only foundation that doesn't have me crying in the mirror. I never would have thought that a product from Maybelline would be my daily foundation but it is from this day forward. My search is over for the time being. I absolutely love it and would be lost without it at this point.

Not good for my semi dry skin, make me look flaky after about 2 hours. Hate the packaging. The color matched nicely.

this is the best foundation i have tried so far, which doesnt say much because i don't buy foundation often. the nude color seems to match my asian skin pretty well, although its not a PERFECT match (i have yet to find a foundation that will match my skin perfectly anyway.)

i just purchased this and with my finger the application isnt very good, but with a make up sponge it looks awesome and lasts all day. i havent used it long enough to get the break outs yet.. i'm kind of scared after reading all these reviews but hopefully it wont happen to me *crosses fingers*

Nice consistancy and felt good going on. I used about 1/2 a jar. Stopped using it because the ingredient list is scary and it broke my cheeks out. I think it's because of the silicones and the jojoba oil in it. Also, would make flakes really stand out.

The colors and packaging are horrible for this product. I purchased the Creamy Natural shade, which, judging by the (poor) in-store color swatch and the shade's appearance through the bottom of the glass jar, looked to be a very soft, natural, cool-toned choice. Once I opened the jar, however, the color was an obvious pink-orange (WHEN will the industry stop including so much peach/orange in foundation shades? I've never met a single human being with peach skin, outside of those who frequent tanning booths). The Dream Matte also showed up every flake and dry patch that I wasn't even aware I had. This experience sure left me wishing for the days when tester jars were routine in drugstores. It even left me hoping to find tampered jars, as wrong and as rude as that practice may be. But Maybelline has made the seals on these jars tamper-proof, to be opened only by scissors. So, you're left with a bunch of shades incredibly difficult to decipher, and I can't rate a product any higher than a 1 when a company deceives and rips off consumers like this.

I loved this when I first tried it but like a lot of people have said it made me break out. I don't get zits but this actually caused break outs. I stopped using it and they went away.

There is a key to using this foundation, and it is moisture, moisture, moisture!! It will not work if you have excessively dry skin, as this formula will "ball up" upon application to dry patches. If you have normal, oily, or combination skin, this is a terrific, inexpensive foundation. Just moisturize before applying. I get silky, even coverage. You can go sheer, or build it up for problem areas.
A great buy.

I couldn't find a color match in this for my medium south asian skin. The tan color was way too dark and the honey beiege was slightly too light. I also needed something more tellow-toned than these too colors. I'll stick to my clinique superbalanced compact in golden beige.

I like this! I got it in Natural Ivory and it is a great shade for my skin. Medium coverage and it does keep my skin matte all day. Except for my nose. I don't think anything could keep it from getting oily. I really like this!! Would repurchase.
