This foundation is great for a drugstore brand. I usually stick with MAC foundations but when I saw the commercial I was dying to try this. The whipped mousse texture is really nice, it glides onto my face nice and smooth. I usually put on my moisturizer first and then apply this and it gives my face a healthy glow.
UPDATE: 6/28/05 I stopped using this through the winter because I needed something more moisturizing. Anyhow since it's warm now, I switched back and what the hell was I thinking when I wrote the 1st part of my review?! The SECOND I step outside, my face turns greasy as hell! Yesterday I must have blotted my face close to 10x in 4 hrs...which is completely ridiculous for me. Any other foundation I wear, I only have to blot my face like twice for the whole day. My face is never this oily. And summer hasn't even started to kick in full effect yet. Ugh! I will never purchase this again. MATTE mousse my ***!

I love this makeup! It has the quality of department store makeup at a Wal-Mart price... I use the #2 and it suits my complexion perfectly--*hint* it looks a lot oranger in the jar than it does on your face--that's because it's so highly pigmented. I always use a silicone based primer with foundation and it's so matte I find I don't need powder to set it. I've already bought a second jar for when I run out--I've paid many times this for makeup not half as good--you've got to try it!

I adore this makeup. The coverage is great and it last all day. I did not find it settled in facial lines. My skin never look more flawless. I was lucky in choosing the perfect color. You can't really tell much from the jar. I have a light/medium skin tone and the true Beige medium No. 2 was perfect for me.

I really wanted to like this product. At first it went on with no problems, it dried matte, it was a perfect color match, it felt good and it looked okay. About two hours later I looked in the mirror and it had become chalky in spots and I had areas of my face that were itching. Also, the idea of having to dig into my foundation doesn't comfort me much simply because of issues of hygiene. Usually I try Maybelline foundation with the hopes that I will like it, only to discover that I don't. The only foundation I enjoyed was True Illusion and that was pulled a couple of years ago. As much as I wanted to give this a great rating, I just can't. Sorry girls.

I really love this stuff. It was on sale at target this past week so I decided to give it a try. It has a lightweight feeling that doesnt make your skin feel all nasty like other foundations do. I have not had a problem with breakouts yet, nor has it dried out my skin. I will definately purchase again!
*Edit* I had to stop using this product due to skin breakouts.

I was really hoping to like this foundation, but it didn't work for me. I need coverage, this goes on too sheer and does not build up. My skin is dry, this accented every dry area even though I had moisturized my skin before using. Lastly, I felt that it sat on the skin, rather than became a part of it...If you have dry skin and need fuller coverage, this is not for you.

I am truly impressed with this product, which is surprising because I usually only use much more expensive makeups. However, I have NEVER seen a foundation go on this smooth, I mean this stuff glides like butter. Not only that, it looks totally smooth... no cakeynesss. The only thing is, I don't think the staying power is totally up to par, but I have yet to find a foundation that has enough staying power for my PPP oily skin. So overall, very good product!

I love this stuff. It has a lovely matte finish and it applies very smoothly. Of course, I have extremely oily skin, so I don't imagine that a person with dry skin would have the same experience, but I don't know. Goodbye Lancome foundation. I'm gonna have to buy tons of this though, because Maybelline drops products as often as I buy lipgloss.

I gave this 3 lippies, because I think the problem, is that I have not found which one is my color.The problem with low end brands, is that there are no testers...or only one tester,in one color. I like the easy application. I am tired of brushes, and sponges. The faster the better, for me...but the color I bought just didn't work for me.I wont rule it out, until I find my color, and then I will decide.

I was totally afraid to try this one because I'm quite fair and usually have a hard time finding products for my complexion, but Maybelline has rarely let me down out of the drugstore brand stuff I've tried so I gave it a whirl and so far I love it.Not to heavy, pretty blendable, the color (light#1) works well..I could see how it wouldn't be for everybody though.
