I wouldn't say that this is the HG of foundations, but it's something quick and easy for when you want to just smooth out your complexion. If you have dark circles, acne scars this doesn't cover it up. It really doesn't matter though I use a concealer with almost every foundations I have used, but I did notice that my skin looked supple and the foundation is build-able. Sucks that you can see the true color before you buy it. This lasts about 6 hrs if you have super extremely oily skin....remember to use a primer..it makes it last longer.

love it

I love this but it can be a little messy to apply, but if you are looking for a natural looking foundation this is it. This is a very natural look foam. Its very light. It is a good use for those natural makeup looks

AMAZING

This foundation is amazing! I won't ever wear anything else again! I am a dancer, and it stays on for 4 hours of Jazz practice! It never fades, it is build-able, and it feels great. It gives a beautiful matte finish. I even went swimming once with it on and it stayed! (well, most of it) I still had to remove my makeup after swimming. Absolutely try this out and make sure you use primer!

It's darker than it looks, and only the lightest one suits my skin tone, but it goes on easily, and stays all day. It doesn't look obvious that you're wearing foundation and it's not heavy so it's perfect for summer and a more natural look.

A Nice Surprise

I heard a review about this foundation on youtube so I decided to try it. It is the perfect sumer foundation. In the summer foundation tends to melt off of my face, but this foundation doesn't and it doesn't even look like you are wearing any foundation! I LOVE IT!

I bought this after my roommate raved about it and she was right to do so. I'm working in hot temperatures and after being out in the sun it doesn't even run! It's great I like how lightweight the foundation is and how easy it stays on my face.

LIGHT, BUILDABLE AND LASTING. PERFECT FOR SUMMER.

I saw a makeup tutorial that wore this foundation and was marveled by the fact that it was a foam so I bought it. At the first time, I spilled it everywhere because I didn't shake it first. It's VERY IMPORTANT that you shake very well first, and then you can actually control the amount that you put on your hands, which many people complain about. It is very lightweight (I'd say heavier than a BB cream, but lighter than a foundation) and you can totally build it up. My acne got really critical recently and I put about 2 coats on the areas where I most needed it and I was good to go. Don't need a powder or a primer: this stays all day and doesn't sweat off.

Sheer, Lightweight, Natural Finish, Great Staying Power, Fun Formula to Work With

By far the most lightweight foundation I've ever worn, and one of the most interestingly textured as well. I'm not fond of the packaging; being an aerosol can, it's bulky, you really have to shake the can well for the most even distribution of pigment in the foam. Otherwise, the foam will come out white and randomly splotchy with pigment.

Not to mention, some of the foundation will cake up and dry in the opening of the spray nozzle and block it, so that when you spray again later or the next day, it kind of explodes out of the can and onto the mirror/dresser/skin/clothes. Some people spray this on the back of the hand. I prefer to catch it in my palm to keep it from shooting everywhere. Also, because this dispenses as a foam, it's difficult to control how much product you're spraying; if you only need a little, you still dispense a lot.

Packaging quips aside, the foam is just so unusual that it's a little fun to play with. The foam dispenses a little dark, but when it settles into a liquid it lightens significantly and eventually dries light and sheer, making color matching very difficult with this foundation. But because it's so sheer, you can get away with a fairly close match anyway. I am MAC NC30, and was using Dream Nude Airfoam in 170 Nude, which was a little lighter but blended really well.

I apply this with my fingers in 5 areas: forehead, nose, both cheeks, and chin. The foam quickly dissolves into a blendable and sheer liquid, and dries to a fresh, natural, semi-matte finish. Not quite flat as truly matte finish! It reminds me of the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream's finish; just a tiny bit of sheen. Likewise, neither offer medium coverage, but at least they can be buildable to medium coverage at best.

I have combo-oily skin so I was hesitating to try this at first, but during the winter my skin is drier, so I gave this a chance and its staying power has lasted me 9 hours, and without powder! I was pleasantly surprised that this didn't just disappear like many sheer face makeup do. I can't say that this will be great for the summer when my skin is relentlessly oily; it may just slide off. Also, I'm not sure that the $10 price tag (I think this is the most expensive Maybelline foundation) is worth the troubling packaging. The foam is fun to play with, but I think it's more of a marketing gimmick.

As far as the formula goes though, I do recommend this for normal skin types year-round, and for combo-oily and oily skin types during the fall and winter seasons when oil is less of an issue.

Love it!

Its light to medium coverage but if you cover your beauty marks with Concealer and then use this foundation it looks really good. It feels like if I have no make up on. I have been using it for about 1 week and it stays on all day. I have supper oily skin and I loved that I did not have to retouch throughout the day with any type of powder! The only con to it is I wish that u cant control the amount that comes out you have to be careful when it comes out because the consistency is so light that it can just fly from your hand other than that I just apply it with my e.l.f flat top. power brush. and it goes on smoothly! One more thing to say about this product. is to go. and try it out for yourself ! O and for reference I'm using 265 sun beige.
