I wouldn't buy it again but I may recommend it , not sure. definitely test it first.

my very first foundation buy :D I was in college and Maybelline was ofc one of the first brands I tried. it was the easiest to find and the most marketable. and affordable.

this one was at 9.99$ . has a great consistency for oily skin [if the formula hadn't changed , also I didn't …

I am, unfortunately for my wallet, a HE foundation & makeup snob. I rarely (rarely for me.. possibly quite often for a less makeup-obsessed individual) delve into the drugstore makeup aisle. However, right now is the first time in a while I am very tanned from BOTH self/spray tan + real tan. So my typical summer >nw30-ish is colliding deeper into my fake tan go-to of nc42-3. I have a much …Read more

I used this foundation a lot in my 20's and it was okay, it gave me some of the coverage I need but I could never find a good match for my complexion, the price is kind of high in my opinion for a drugstore brand but all in all it is an okay foundation. I no longer use it but it may work for other women who are on somewhat of a budget.

The consistency is like of whipped mousse, which for me is quite difficult to work with. When applied the foundation feels slightly greasy and powdery, and not very natural. I found it easier to apply the product with a stippling brush with a few sprays of MAC Fix+.
Colour Sand is a good match for NC25 skin.

I recall using this in my late teens and did not understand how makeup really worked. I got that foundation probably because it was on sale and i was like Why not ? I ended up using it and every single time people would tell me how my skin looked perfect and doll-like. I never had bad acne but still had pimples now and then plus a alot of white heads on my forehead and rosacea on the sides of …Read more

**EDIT**
This foundation broke out my forehead very badly within two weeks of using. Returned it and got my money back. Bummer!
Now I’m using La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (light) which is similar to a BB/CC cream with Clinique Stay Matte sheer pressed powder (oil free) and my skin is clearing up nicely!

I’m not a foundation wearer because normally I …

After the light "swirls" ran out on this makeup it went on dry and "hard." Coverage was spotchy and uneven and showed every pore. I have to do better than this one!! Have new ones which I will try (as I' m thrifty ) but will not buy again. Thx.

This was the first foundation I ever used! The first shade I had wasn't right but I never seem to be able to find my shade in Maybelline products.
This is quite a dry foundation and dries out if you've had it for a while. It always accentuated my dry patches, especially around my nose. Once the foundation got quite old, the product used to bunch up into little balls on my face …

Okay, I have tested this out twice now (full 9 hour days at work) and I can say that this a really good (not perfect) foundation for oily skinned folks who need something quick, easy, and light (but can be built for fuller coverage) to apply for a quick grocery run, shopping afternoon, or movie night. I say "lite" events - where you might be out no more than 4 hours bc after the 4 hour …Read more

This foundation looks sooo amazing! I was scared to try it bc it was a mousse & i have really oily skin but lately since it’s been cold my skin has been dry but really oily in my T-zone. The only foundation i use every day is the L’Oréal Infallible pro matte. I love the L’Oréal foundation but lately by 4th hour at school my face will be so oily and start breaking up & it looks horrible. I …Read more
