I bought this product about two weeks ago, and have used it daily since then. The coverage, texture, and price are excellent. It stayed on my face all day, with minimal transfer. The only reason I won't buy it again is that I have acne-prone skin and this product caused huge whiteheads to breakout all over my skin, an occurance which hasn't happened to me since I was in high school (I'm now 25). I am very disappointed; I thought I'd found the one!

i really like this powder. it goes on very smoothly and it doesn't make my skin look dry like others have. i don't wear foundation so when i'm in a hurry i wear this under my eyes or around my nose and it really stays for a while and covers very nicely. i'll definately get this again in the future.

Pretty good colour selection for a drugstore find (Nude is a golden tan that isn't pinky, that matches my skintone pretty well). But while this stuff goes on matte and silky smooth, in a couple of hours, you look in the mirror and it's shine city, as it's not oil-free. Overall, it doesn't cause breakouts to my combination, acne-prone skin, the line has a decent colour selection and price, but I'll be giving Lancome's Photogenic a try after this.

i have currently been using Cover Girl Fresh Complexion Pocket Powder.. i had realized that it made me look a bit too powdery. so i picked this one up and i must say it does the job very well! gives good coverage and looks natural.. NOT overdone. much better!! ivory is a nice color on me. bravo Maybelline! all other maybelline powders/foundations have not worked for me.. but i guess this one just stands at the top of my list.. ^_^

I lov this product. I bought it sortof by accident b/c i needed a new foundation and i had picked this up just to look at it and my mom was like, hurry up, so i just ended up getting it and it's so easy. I don't even have to use another foundation with it. Plus you can keep it in your purse and easily reapply it during the day. I got it in the color golden and it gives a little more color to my face. i would definetly reccomend this to people, and it's pretty cheap.

I absolutely love this product! I am picky when it comes to foundations (I always seem to have difficulty finding a good color match and a formula I like in both high and low end foundations), yet this is the one I always come back to. I will also add that I have detested every other Maybelline foundation I have tried, but I must say, they broke the mold with this one! It is great at controlling oil, makes my skin look flawless, has SPF, is easy to apply, lasts all day, doesn't break me out, doesn't change color, and the Ivory color is perfect for my skin (a nice neutral ivory--not too pink, yellow, peachy, or orange). Having said that, I will also say that I would NOT recommend this product for someone with dry skin or a lot of lines. I have to keep it away from my eye area because it makes my wrinkles look worse, but it is great on the oily areas. So, if your skin is on the oilier side and you don't have dry patches, dry skin, or a lot of wrinkles, this product will make your skin look lovely, and on top of that, it is quite inexpensive! A final hint: use a triangle wedge sponge to apply instead of the sponge that comes with it for a more natural looking finish (but use the sponge included in the package if you want heavier coverage).

I wanted a cheap powder foundation since I keep one in my purse, in my drawer at work, in my work touchup bag, and at home. One of the few powder foundations that actually act like a foundation in terms of coverage. I've tried lots of others and they act more like a sheer powder on me. Only one better in coverage than this is my Shiseido powder foundation (use 'old' formula in red compact).

I loved this product. and when maybelline changed their products a little and didn't ship it for a while i had the scare of my life when i went back to buy some more! they never had the lightest color (which is a little dark for me btw in the winter) but it covers great, goes on great and has real staying power, and sunscreen to top it all off! I love this stuff!

Ugh. I got this in the lightest color they had, Ivory. Gives nice coverage, but isn't good for pale skin (I'm MAC NC15). Turned orange, and caked slightly too.

i kinda like its packaging- silver casing. this powder foundation goes on light and "silky". doesnt cake up and great for touching up. recommended to all.

I have just gone back to school full time (after being a stay-at-home mom for many years) and I re-discovered this product. It wouldn't be my top choice if I were at home and could carefully apply a cream-to-powder product, but it's great for fast touch ups at school. My main area of concern is my nose, which is very big and red if I don't cover it with foundation and powder! A quick swipe of this stuff covers up the "uglies", at least for a little while. I'm very fair, so I use the lightest shade available. And I usually just use it on my nose area.

Not too crazy about this one. I was looking for somthing because I ran out of my MAC Studio FIX, so I picked this one up on sale. I like it, but it doesn't compare to my trusted Studio FIX, so I think I will just stick to that.

This wasn't bad, I liked it way better than the Cover Girl Fresh Complexion Pocket Powder because it was smoother and gave better coverage. However, this contains mineral oil, not good for oily skins. After a couple of hours I was wondering why I was so shiny...checked the ingredients and viola! mineral oil was the culprit. I stopped using it before it had a chance to break me out. Otherwise, pretty good for the price, just not for me. UPDATE - 12/08: Tried this again out of curiosity as my memory is somewhat faded; was hoping to find a cheap, easy powder to use when I feel rushed in the morning. Well, this stuff is total crap. It doesn't cover anything, and just looks so fake. Why oh why do I always try drugstore makeup which is normally sub-par???

Not bad! I was looking for a cheapie foundation to take with me on vacation this year. I bought this in 'natural beige', and was pleasantly surprised! The coverage is even, and it covers 'enough' for a powder form. leaves a soft finish, and i use it on weekends as my 'pared down' look. easy to swipe on. I'd probably buy it again.

Hum... It's only been two weeks at my drugstore and now it's on sale. It's very good as a powder, but awful as a foundation. Why? it's so freakin dry... Color is good though and it stays put.

The coverage and blendability is great! Very natural looking, and powder is very fine milled. However, my face looked *VERY* shiny after 2 hours. A no-no for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
This is a staple for me! It gives buildable coverage and lasts all day. It keeps my skin looking clear without feeling like I have a mask on. I use this in Buff which is great for ligh skintones.

This is originally my mom's. It really isn't creamy WHICH I LIKE and I like that its just a little bit more of a hardpressed powder or dewier powder. I liked it. I would buy it again

this was nice. perfect for those days when u don't want to wear make-up, but u still feel like u need a little "something."
it gave me a very natural look. i really liked the finish.
however, i think it would be better on me if were tanner. i am too light (usually the #2 for most foundations), so it was a tad too dark for me. but in the summertime, when i get a tan, i'm using this stuff! :)

This is the best coverup ive used, it covers great, and it doesnt make my skin oily...but theyr arent that many colors to choose from but its still great
