I am on the fence with this one. I like the coverage and blendability of this foundation, but I don't really like the "feel" of it--it feels somewhat greasy when you apply it. I don't know if it's non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic, but it doesn't "feel" like it is.
I haven't really given this a fair trial yet, so I will update when I can detect more results (breaking out, staying on, etc...).

I bought this after I got cashmere perfection by L'Oreal, just as a comparison (that and I'm addicted to makeup). The coverage of this mousse foundation is heavier than L'Oreal and I couldn't really find a great color match either. Don't like the packaging as much because it's a pain to dive into the little pot with long nails and also not so sanitary. It does keep the face Matte though (as well as L'Oreal IMO). If you are looking for a better coverage, this would be perfect.

This was an impulse buy while i was wandering around the drugstore this weekend, trying to beat the heat and enjoying the ac! i have very oily skin, and my HG foundation for years has been Mac stuido fix NC 30- so i thought i'd mix it up and try this- i got Medium 3 and it is a perfect match for my face and neck. i love the light whipped texture of this product, the coverage is great not like a mask, but evens me out- the finish is powdery light and hours later i am still not a greasy mess (that is a good thing) - i would recommend this foundation, as it is a new twist on texture from a powder cake, and has not caused any breakout problems on my skin. no scent, and a little bit goes a long way on my face, so i see this pot lasting a while (not sure if my skin will match by the time i'm out of this).

For a drugstore foundation, this is pretty decent. It's certainly not my HG but I'm guessing the problems I have with it - it is a little TOO matte on me and makes me look embalmed - are mostly basic skin type compatability issues. My friend who has horrible acne scars has begun wearing this and she really likes it. For me, I prefer something a little more sheer and with a dewier finish. I got this in Medium 1 which is an okay match for my NC30-35 skin, but it's still a bit pink-toned for me. I wear this at night to the gym and it's fine for that but for regular wear, no.

okay, I am the first to say that other than revlon skinlights, I am not a big fan of drug store foundations. I was introducted to this product by a makeup artist who works for maybelline new york and I was pleasantly surprised by it.

If it looks foundation on the skin, then you are probably starting with too much. The maybelline artist applies this foundation with a big fluffy powder brush, yes a powder brush and it goes on like an airbrush foundation. It didn't settle in the pores ro anything. I haven't tried it with a foundation brush, but i have tried it with a fluffy powder brush and I LOVE how this foundation looks.

I love this foundation. It blends perfectly and is so easy to blend. The coverage is enough to cover my acne and redness, and while the staying power cannot compare to my previous foundation, Revlon ColorStay, this foundation is *much* more comfortable and light as air! Finally, Maybelline hits it right in the foundation department.

I finally tried this, and I think it's my HG summer foundation! My only two complaints are the packaging - a pot you have to dip your fingers in. (I wash my hands before using), and that I can see it in the pores on my cheeks near my nose. Powdering on top seems to help. This goes on really easily, a little goes a long way. It blends out and you can build the coverage. My skin looks pretty much flawless in all lighting. I use a little more on areas where I want more coverage. I powder on top for a real shine-free look that lasts a long time. I still use concealer on my darkest spots, but I don't have to use nearly as much. No breakouts. The shade I got is a perfect match - Porcelain ivory #1, I think it's called. If you have flakes, this can accentuate it, so regular exfoliation is necessary. I use an spf moisturizer under this, that probably makes a difference in how it wears. This is much too drying for cooler months.

A great drug store find. Good coverage and lasts all day on my normal skin with oily t-zone. A definate repurchase.

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
