I Totally Love this foundation. I have such a hard time finding my color though.
This foundation gives you such a flawless look, and the best part is that you dont need to use so much of it. It is kind of a thick consistency, so just a little will do. (A lil goes a long way) It is very affordable, which is the best part! lol
Amazing... but only for short-term wear!
This product provides amazing coverage and a beautiful finish to the skin! It really couldn't be better... except for the fact that after a few hours wear time it starts to break down and leave you with that crazy "scale" effect on the face! It is a great product for those times when you only need it to stay on for a short period. For example, it would be great for when you are just going to an event that isn't going to last for too long or something along those lines.
I used the foundation years ago and stopped using it when I got more into makeup. I started purchasing liquid foundations and for the most part they accomplished what I needed. Recently, because of the weather changes and changes with my skin (I've started using ProActive), I wanted something with decent coverage that doesn't feel as cakey and heavy as liquid foundation. I came across a YouTube video where the girl pulled this out for her foundation. I suddenly remembered how great this foundation was and had to go buy it. I chose a color perfect for my winter complexion (I've gotten lighter since my tan left). It's exactly what I expected. Light feeling with just the amount of coverage that I need and at a great price. I definitely recommend this if you're looking for just a little something to give you a flawless face.
Looked dry on my skin
I'm not sure if it's because this is a cream foundation, has a matte finish, or b/c my skin is dry skin - but this didn't sit well on my skin at all. It didn't blend well, and made me look almost chalky. I saw in a GLAMOUR magazine article saying how it was worth the $$ to try the foundation. But it was an epic fail for my skin. It just sits in my makeup kit :/
Wasn't so sure when I first bought it but..
When I first purchased this foundation I didn't know what to make of it, as I have combination skin (mostly oily) it dried out a few spots of my skin and made them flaky, which I was not amused with. Then I tried it with a liquid foundation aswell as the mousse, and it works like a 'dream' on my skin! It makes it look matte in the right areas and the coverage is great, I use it with any liquid foundation and it works really well on my skin. I've used this foundation since Maybelline brought it out & I won't use anything other than this, aside from any bog standard liquid foundation..I set it with the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder & the foundation lasts all day on me, i'd highly recommend it ! xx
I really wanted to like it...but.
I really wanted to like this because I have heard so many great things! I tried it for a while. I did like it alot at first, but then after a few uses, I realized that my face looked kind of cakey with it on. Maybe my face is too dry for this. It really does have a matte finish, but I don't think this is a good thing. If I run out of my current foundation I may use it, just until I go buy another one. I don't like to waste product though so I may find a purpose, maybe as a concealer. hmm.
