Great for dry skin!
Was on the hunt for a foundation for my very dry skin. This foundation kept getting a lot of reviews for use with dry skin and at under $10 why not try it. LOVE IT! So far it is the only foundation that doesn't cake up on me or dry out my skin. Goes on light but you can build it to medium coverage easily and it just melts into your skin.
Really Love It!!!!!
I really love this foundation! The only problem I've had is that it is almost impossible to find the correct shade for me. It took a few trips to my local KMart before I actually found the Light Ivory Shade. It sits very nicely on my skin and gives me a pretty flawless look. Unfortunately, I was on the Maybelline website and apparently this has been discontinued. This is a MUCH better product than the dream matte mousse and I wish they'd bring this product back!
I have really dry skin, and had yet to find a foundation that will not make me look cakey and gross. I feel like a lot of lighter foundations are more thick and cakey and just a different over all texture and usually too pink... so I was hesitant about trying this product- but I'm so glad I did. This is my favorite foundation now. I bought it in the shade 110 porcelain/ivory, and it's deff more like a creamy natural and that's the lightest color out of I think 8 shades (which is the worst part about this foundation in my opinion) but anyways, it's a perfect match. I don't have any demarcation marks on my jaw line or anything from this. I apply a moisturizing serum primer first (Monistat's chafing relief powder gel) and let that dry, then I apply this with my fingers in dots on my face and blend it out with my real techniques expert face brush (8.99 at Ulta - this is seriously the best brush &brand I've ever tried, I like it better than high end, so you should deff try these brushes out too!) and this gives me such a poreless, flawless, dewy satin finish. I have really red skin underneath my makeup and I apply a thin layer of this and then will go over any other spots and may need extra coverage since this is a very light weight foundation, it's also very buildable and full coverage will not look cakey and for the most part you can barely even tell I have makeup on. This foundation really just works for my skin, I can't say enough good things about it. I do wish the jar was a little bigger, I feel like you don't get very much product for the $9 price tag, but none the less- I will continue to repurchase!! I set this with a Mac face powder, but I wish they had a matching powder to go along with this too, that'd be awesome! I would reccomend this foundation to anyone who has dry skin and needs a foundation with more moisture and a natural almost dewy finish!
Smooth and silky, for a while!
Up until recently this was my go-to foundation. I have a skin condition that makes my skin extremely dry and flaky, and this foundation worked very well to hide that--at least for a couple of hours. After that, my skin would turn into the Sahara Desert. I loved how smooth this felt going on and how lightweight it felt on the skin. I think the colors were a pretty good match for me, but they do run on the pink side. Otherwise, it was a great formula that just didn't work so well for me personally.
This isn't the best foundation ever, but its not the worse either. I bought mine two months ago and just ran out today, not sure if I'll be getting this one again. It had good coverage and my skin looked great and smooth with the medium one I got, but it feels greasy and makes me feel gross, and it really doesn't last too long, even with primer. :(
Very light but gives awesome coverage!
I have it in shadeCaramel. I bought this foundation only because it was on clearance at Ulta and I had a coupon. I was a little skeptical because i didn't know if would match my skin but it ended up being a perfect match. I was using the Mac Studio Tech which was way to heavy and did not go well with my skin. This foundation does not make your face fee like you have makeup caked on. Very light but gives awesome coverage! I use this in conjunction with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Dark. My skin looks sooo natural and flawless! I will buy this product again!
I bought this in Porcelain Ivory and it was a perfect match for my skin. This product has very good coverage and a great sponge to blend it in. Although it is a little smelly when you first buy it, the smell of eggs on the sponge goes away. I don't think that the scent of the sponge should drive you away from buying this product though. Overall great!
