Absolutely HATE this product. Even when using foundation primer this foundation would accentuate my pores, not cover them up for a flawless pore free finish. What a bunch of bull! I took it back and got my money back.
Now, I know some of the reviewers said that this is not good on oily skin. I have this foundation and I have combination/oily skin, but it does not make me any oilier than I am. The best way to apply it is in patting motions and this can be done either with a stippling brush or a sponge. Just take a dab and pat it on. Then take a setting powder and with a sponge, pat then roll over the foundation. You will get the desired coverage that you want that way. It is a great overall foundation!
Amazing for the price
I'm a cheap-o so most foundations I have bought in the past turn out to be pretty crappy. I was so happy when this came out! I can never find foundations that match my skin and the sand-beige matches almost perfectly since it has a kind of yellow undertone. It goes on so smooth, you can barely tell I'm wearing it and it usually lasts me all day. I love it!
Great but not for oily skin
Absolutley love how great this foundation goes onto my skin. It gives an airbrushed finish, just as it says it does. The only problem is that I have oily skin, so it doesn't stay on for a long time but I love, love, love the coverage and texture of this foundation so I am willing to put up with a couple extra touch ups during the day.
Smooth, even, light-as-air coverage.
I do not understand the reviewers that found this foundation to be "cakey." I apply it over clean, moisturized skin, usually with a slightly damp sponge, although I admit to occasionally using my fingers as I would a moisturizer, then blending it and my concealer with the sponge. I get a perfectly smooth, flawless finish.
I have seen some people apply liquid foundation by pumping some onto the back of their hand, and stippling the foundation on their face with a brush. That technique did not work for me using this foundation. I ended up with uneven coverage that way, despite blending afterward with a sponge.
I use a lighter shade in winter, when I am paler, and one shade darker in the summer, along with a bit of bronzer.
With this foundation, my mild melasma is completely covered, and my skin gets many complements.
As good or better than more pricey makeup lines.
I am in love with this foundation!!!! It goes on so nice and it is not heavy at all. You can barely tell that I have it on. I have also noticed that it doesn't rub off on things. It is very light and really gives you that airbrushed look without the machine. I will definitely be purchasing this in all the shades for my MUA kit that I am currently building. My face is extremely sensitivee to everything so the fact that it didn't break me out was a plus as well. When I use it, I apply it with a sponge and I set it with a light powder. My face has such a nice glow to it and I just absolutely love it!!!!
My skintone in the middle of Honey Beige & Caramel, so I just mix the two. Besides that, I love this foundation. Since it's a mousse, the key is to apply it lightly, then layer if needed. A lot of people I know have problems with Maybelline's Mousse foundations because they aren't applying it properly. The coverage is good. I recommend using a primer if your planning to wear it for most of the day.
This foundation is a dream! covers really well and feels so light i forgot i was wearing any. This is my first maybelline foundation in 10yrs as i found their products made my skin very oily and would quickly slide off my face. But, now i'm a convert and this product really does work and my face doesn't go oily like it did and the product stays. This item also works very well with their age renew primer.
