the texture of this product is great. color options-not too bad. i was able to find a shade close to my natural skin tone. it looks orange in the container (got the nude shade), but goes on fine. coverage was ok. i have combo/oily skin but was experiencing some problems on my nose when i first tried this product, and had some dryness. it looks TERRIBLE on dry skin! furthermore, about a few hours later i started feeling really greasy-more than usual. i tried this a few more times and got similar results. it covered my redness well, but seemed to 'melt' off my face a few hours later. and i live in the midwest - you can't blame it on the humidity

This stuff looked good in when I looked in the mirror in my bathroom, but when I checked it in the mirror in my car I realized how horrible this stuff looks out in the daylight. It doesn't stay matte for more than a few minutes on me either, but i mostly blame that on the extremely humid environment I live in. I wouldn't buy this again.

Surprise-Surprise! What a find for a drugstore foundation. Like others, I love the medium coverage and matte finish. Still need to re-touch by early afternoon, but that's true for my high-end Chanel stuff, too. EDIT: This product seemed to oxidize rather quickly. About 1/4 of the way into the pot, I found it to be rather orangey. Had to toss. Removed a lippie.

This is a pretty good fndn for the price. I was worried it would break me out after reading some of the reviews, but after almost a month it has not (although I don't want to jinx myself). I like the coverage which does a good job of evening out my skin tone although not as good a job at concealing blemishes as I was expecting. I was also not particularly impressed with the matteness or staying power. I am still powdering as much as I used to. Another reviewer mentioned that a Revlon fndn (can't remember the name!) blew this away as far as matteness goes. Too bad it's discontinued b/c I agree...
UPDATE: Ok, so years after this original review, this is not discontinued, and I have come to love this drugstore foundation. It's not my everyday pick, but on a day that I need to just hurry up and go, I just slap it on - no primer, no powder, no concealer necessary. It's a great little one-step product if you're in a rush or just don't feel like the effort of multiple products. I've used up the jars I bought years ago when writing this review, and have repurchased as recently as yesterday. Definitely my favorite drugstore foundation.

I love this foundation! I am very pleased with its texture, coverage (medium to full) and staying power. When I first put it on my very pale skin, I thought it was a bit orange, but as I blended it, it seemed to melt into my skin. The only downfall is its packaging. I don't like the jar because I think it's unhygienic to dip your fingers into your makeup, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. I am praying that this won't break me out and it will keep doing its job as it has been for the past week or so!

I <3 this stuff! It gives me a nice matte finish and it blends well with my Asian skin. I have some discoloration on my skin from acne, but the coverage of this stuff is actually enough to cover it up. I don't have to use a separate concealer. I'm not crazy about concealer, it usually looks too unnatural for my skintone. It was only $4.99 at the CVS when I bought it too. And I had a $1.00 off any Maybelline foundation coupon. ;)

I love this product! The color is sooo perfect, and not orange at all. I have creamy natural. It looks really pretty and doesn't seem to enlarge my pores or anything like other people have said. I would DEFINITELY reccomend it!

The texture is good and feels nice on my face. It wears pretty well all day. I use a cosmetic wedge to apply this makeup and the technique works wonderfully for me. Will definately repurchase.

*sigh* I am taking this foundation by the wrist and marching it straight back to the Walgreen's.
Positives: I do like the little jar--so cute! The texture is lovely, and the finish is indeed matte, as promised.
Negatives: For starters, the color. It's too orange. It sits on my skin and looks like foundation. Another reviewer mentioned the '80s. Yup, that's the first thought I had, too. Maybe it's just the shade I got, but still--ick.
The other thing I don't like about it is that after a few minutes, it settles into my pores in these lighter dots, so it makes my pores more visible, not less. And I only used the tiniest amount, as recommended by other reviewers.

This foundation has the most amazing texture. You need to avoid over-applying. It is a bit "solid" once it goes on your skin, so you need to apply just a tiny bit and smooth it in well, and it works best in the T-zone, not on the cheeks. The colors look darker in the jar than on the skin (I've tried two shades). This is a great full coverage makeup.
