YES, yes, and YES!This is my HG foundation because it has so many benefits to the skin! I am an avid purchaser of MAC and Chanel products but many of their foundations fall short of my expectations when it comes to hot, humid Australian weather, although the Chanel Perfection Lumiere is quite good but it is $89 and claims 15 hours of wear but makes the skin have a slight sheen to it and doesn't cover much redness or imperfections. I found this purely by accident as I was waiting awhile for the pharmacist to prepare my script. What attracted me was the super stay claim, which actually does deliver but also in a natural-looking manner. I wear the lightest shade TRUE IVORY which matches me perfectly and I receive a lot of compliments on my skin when I wear this product! I think this is best for those with oily type skins and if you have some drier patches be sure to properly prime. Although, I would avoid any of the peachy and rose looking shades at all costs! You do need a STRONG makeup remover which is an oil in water one to get this off AND then a toner for a final cleanse. I will only wear this in SUMMER because in winter my skin turns more dry and I prefer a dewy-glow look in the colder months. Thank you Maybelline! I am surprised I liked anything from a drug-store!

I've been consistently using this foundation everyday for the past couple of years and I absolutely love it. I live in a place where the temperature not infrequently goes over 100F and the weather is very humid, making most foundations melt off my face within a couple hours of leaving the house, but not this one. This has a matte finish and the Porcelain Ivory color fits me just right, the price is decent and the product lasts a good amount of time (I used up 4 bottles this year, so about 3 months each). The only complaint I have about this is that where I live, the bottle doesn't come with the pump and that doesn't make for the most convenient packaging.

My HG long-lasting foundation! I love going clubbing, so on these nights (and special events) a long lasting foundation with a flawless finish and huge pigmentation is a must. The shade fits me good (20 - cameo). Not THE fitting shade but still a good match. The application is easy and quick. You can build up the coverage but 2 pumps are enough for me. Your face won't get cakey at all (unless you put on too much of foundation or powder). You will find a flawless canva with a semi-matte finish which doesn't look unnatural. The 24h foundation doesn't streak or fades away when you touch your face. And it really resist sweating and heat good. Ok, my t-zone has some sick days/nights where I just need powder in my bag but that's not bad, tbh. The price is ok, there are way more products which claim similar things but don't fulfill them (high end brands). I'll keep repurchasing for sure!

I got this as an alternative to my HG Estee Lauder DE, since I sometimes like to save the good stuff for special occasions. Firstly, price wise, was still kind of expensive in NZ, like $37, BUT better than the $69 for EL, so pretty cheap by comparison. I'm NW15 in MAC usually and the colour 003 true ivory is a very good match. I have no trouble with oxidation, it stays true to colour during the day. The finish is sort of matte. Not as flat as DW, but definitely not dewey. Coverage is awesome. A good medium-full which is impressive. Once on, it does have a slightly tacky feel, but that goes away when I set it with powder. It does, however, feel kind of annoying on my eyelids; like it's making my eyelids sticky or something. I really need to focus on putting powder on my eyelids to stop this otherwise it drives me mad!! It definitely lasts the distance. I can't attest to its '24 hr super stay' claims, but it is definitely robust enough to a last from 8am-10pm. I'm not oily so I have no problems with needing to blot. The pump in mine gets kid of messy but I do like the pump. Overall, one of my fave drugstore foundations, one that I think outshines a lot of its competition in this price point.

I thought I had found my favorite foundation until I tried this. I just grabbed this with me when I was grocery shopping because I need a foundation just for one evening (had forgotten my makeup at home). I had no expectations about it and wasn't really thinking I'd even like it since I hate the 24H powder.This is now over a month ago and ever since I bought it I've always grabbed this when I'm doing my makeup. This foundation doesnt smudge, is easy to apply and blends well. It's also really easy to contour with it and it is a high coverage without making your skin look greasy (at least mine doesn't).I also travelled this weekend where the weather was hot and rainy + quite busy schedule. I didn't expect any foundation to go through this perfectly, but at the end of the day my face honestly looked okay. Obviously not perfect, but I could get away with it for a little longer. So impressed by it and I LOVE that it is a cheap drugstore foundation!!

Found this at Woolworths and was pleasantly surprised to see that they had my colour. I fit the 03 "True Ivory", for reference. The display said $14, so I went to purchase it, and the scanner said $24! Turns out that only one colour was on sale, but they had the sale sticker on every rack.Then was even MORE upset to Google the product and find stores that sell it for around $10 locally. If I had my receipt I'd have returned it to purchase the cheaper one, but alas I had no receipt. Boo. Hardly smells, but the scent is a little like sunscreen, a bit odd as I don't see an SPF rating.Slightly sticky, but shouldn't be a problem when you're applying a powder on top. "Microflex technology" despite the name, doesn't mean it flexes around and won't crease as much. Just means it repels water and oils. To test this, I applied some on my hands, and lo and behold, when I put a drop of water on it and tried dabbing it off, the foundation was much more sheer in the area that got wet, despite letting it dry. Seems to stay on for a while. You really need to apply some pressure to get the colour to wipe on your shirt (colour transfer is an issue if you wear a turtleneck, glasses, or just like hugging people) and it needs a decent amount of pressure to transfer, even then you still have quite a bit left on your face. Not really "full" coverage as I've heard people say. I don't know if that's different with other shades, but even though I have decent skin, the pimples I did have, weren't fully covered, and there was still colour showing through. I wouldn't recommend this product for covering acne, you'd really need something more full coverage. I'd say it's a "medium-full" coverage. Doesn't create a lot, but I still had to bake my face to prevent creasing around the mouth and eyes. Pretty good product, definitely not worth the almost $25 I paid, but would definitely recommend and repurchase if you can find it around $10.UPDATE: This oxidises so heavily. When I apply it to be "full coverage" it suits my skin tone perfectly, but in ten minutes it's slightly orange, in an hour or so it's super orange. Be careful and use sparingly!

I'm a NW50 for general reference and i was shocked to see the darkest shade Cocoa in a Canadian cosmetic discount store (the entire shade range isn't shipped to Canada's regular drugstores) so I grabbed a bottle. The medium coverage and formulation great for my combo skin covering all the acne scaring I need it to but still matching so well it looks skin like, the only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because it doesn't have a pump and it's a tad dewy, which is fine once I set it. longevity is great i've had it last 8hrs can't speak to it being 24hrs but it's lasts as long as I need it toit's awesome doesn't look like i'm wearing foundation it just looks like I have clear skin which is what I want for an everyday foundation I'd wear to school or work, I think I may have found my holy grail drugstore foundation, will definitely repurchase.

My holy grail has always been Revlon Color Stay! But I heard this one was comparable to the Revlon one so I picked it up just to try it. This was during the summer and I grabbed the color sand beige I believe. It fit my skin tone perfectly and was so happy with it. I loved how the foundation covered all my blemishes and looked so beautiful on my skin. Now is winter time and of course my skin got much paler. Loving this foundation I went back and got the shade Classic Ivory expecting it to be a good tone for my much paler skin tone. When I got home and put it on I was so surprised to see how incredibly dark and orangey the foundation looked!! When I swatched my old color "sand beige" and "classic ivory" next to each other the ivory one looked darker and much warmer toned. I put on fake tan the other day and tried it wit a fake tan n its a better fit but STILL too orange tone for me! Is weird to see that "sand beige" is a much cooler and lighter color than "classic ivory" which is suppose to be a pale color. Sad that I wasted my money.. I had to go back to the store and got the Revlon Color Stay instead and bought their "Ivory" which is their lightest shade and it works perfectly. When u swatch and compare "classic ivory" from maybelline they are not even close to being the same shades!!! They need to come out with more cool tone paler shades!!! Sucks that I have to wait till next year in SUMMER and have to FAKE TAN to be able to wear "classic ivory"!!!! I also avoided the "porcelain ivory" shade because is to pink for me as well!!

I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION! it gives a great coverage and doesn't leave my face looking too cake. It makes my face look super smooth. It also works well with my combo skin, which is surprising. I know it's not the best foundation on the market, but it works great for the price and for everyday use. A small amount of it can cover quite a large area. The only downside is that mine doesn't come with a pump, therefore it is rather difficult and time consuming to get the foundation out of the bottle.
