Dear Maybelline: Please don’t ever change this product!!!
Found my HG! Why 5/5/5’s? As a foolish teen I spent my summers in the sun with nothing but baby oil. At 40+ developed quarter-sized liver spots on both cheeks and temples, plus spots all around that make me look like a Star Trek life-form. Dermatologist Rx’s, OTC treatments, have been totally ineffective. Some made it worse by creating a deeper contrast. In 25 years of concealers, color correctors, foundations, THIS product has outdone them all! After pure aloe gel for moisture and a ‘nourishing primer,’ I dab a kabuki brush in a few drops of foundation and apply a light over-all layer with quick strokes for an even color. A second stippling with the kabuki brush over the liver spots and a soft eye shadow brush for smaller freckles and tiny moles covers 100%!!! A spritz of matte setting spray (setting powders eliminated) I’m ready for eyes, lips and cheeks detail. My skin looks photoshopped to perfection, with 220 an exact match to my medium shade Asian skin. No caking, no artificial highlight glitter, no oxidation over time. Excellent packaging, what you see is what you get, which makes color selection simple. A controllable plunger, so no over-dispensing. Price (even without CVS discounts) is unbelievable!
Note: Didn’t need the matching stick version I purchased for concealing. BTW, first test of the stick product, I put the wrong cap back on and smashed the product end :( Definitely a packaging design flaw!
