I Was Surprised!

published

I wasn't expecting too much on this product because I have tried other foundations with the same price but the effect weren't great. This one is different. It was very easy to apply with any tools. It is also buildable so if you're not contented with the 1st layer, you can always add another layer. It is comfortable on my skin.
After 6 hours, I oiled up but the foundation was still great after blotting. It's very humid in the place where I'm at so I already expected that. The only part where the foundation was ruined were on the sides of my nose and under my lips.

This is a truly horrible foundation

published

I haven't worn makeup for ages, and thought I'd give this a go for a function I had to attend. It didn't go on my face at all smoothly. It went straight into my pores and made them stand out like little neon lights. The coverage on the rest of my face was very patchy and rough, and it was painfully obvious that I was wearing foundation ... which completely defeated the purpose. I had to wash it all off, there was no way I was going out in public looking like that. A horrible product that I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Perfect formula, So many shades

This product is amazing I can wear it all day and it is not too heavy on the skin and very easy to remove at the end of the day, Best part is how many shades are available so it actually matches to your skin tone

Not for sensitive skin

published

It has good coverage and gives skin a good glow but for me next day after using it, it caused me acne so I think not suitable for acne prone skin

super matte for my own liking

published

I have combination skin, i get oily on my forehead, nose and some parts of my cheeks. On a daily basis I use this foundation and notice that it cracks on some areas of my face, it does cover my pores but it cakes. If you have the same skin condition as mine, you should prep your face first by exfoliating and putting some moisturizer on.

Purchased in for $12.50.

Not the best for my skin

published

My skin is dry to normal and I found this foundation to cake on my skin and be very dry. The other small problem was finding the right color match for my skin tone the color I thought would be fine was absolutely as I went very orange took 5 different shades to find my match. I can’t say I’m a big fan it’s not full coverage and showed my pores.

Worst drug store foundation

published

I have used many brands’ drug store foundations but by far this is the worst foundation. I bought it from chemist warehouse. It has weird smell and no coverage whatsoever. I am really disappointed.

Best drug store foundation

published

Product was great when it was first introduced. Definitely matte and poreless when I used it on my normally oily skin in summer. Buildable coverage and comes in many shades. Great that it’s cheap and even cheaper when on sale at major supermarkets and pharmacies. Still my everyday foundation but have found that in the last 8 or so months,it wasn’t as good as when I first tried it.

It's good, but not as good as expected

published

This is my current everyday foundation, and i do find i keep repurchasing but mainly as I'm so pale and not many brands offer pale shades. I do like the foundation, but not as good as everyone hypes it up to be.
I don't find it stays all day, and starts to crack around my nose, but until i find something else, i will continue to purchase.

I was expecting better

published

I found this foundation 'just ok'. If you plan on trying it, I'd suggest buying it on special. I don't feel it delivered on its promise of 'poreless' in the slightest. They do have nicer shades of foundation than other brands, however, but alas, I consider these to just be a basic fioundation.

Meh

published

I personally didn't like this product. I found the foundation to have a yellow tinge. They don't have the best range of complexion colours. It has a very tiny pump which usually requires me to use it 2 or 3 pumps to get a full coverage. by the end of the day it wears off and shows my pores. Doesn't really do what it says. Wouldn't recommend.

disappointed with this one

published

I love the Maybelline bb stick and a ton of their stuff so when I saw this I thought it was a no risk. It is matte but too matte for me? I feel like it accentuates dry patches on my skin but doesn't control oil on my t-zone area. I feel it oxidizes more than other foundation on my skin too for some reason. maybe it's just not for me.

Details

Features

  • As a foundation that’s made to help balance oily skin, the formula uses micro-powders to control shine.
  • Features a non-comedogenic formula, which means the ingredients won’t clog or block pores. This is suitable for people with sensitive skin.
  • Dermatologist tested and allergy tested, to make this foundation safer on skin.
  • To use, Maybelline recommends applying foundation onto the skin and blending with fingertips or an applicator.

Points of praise

  • Blends well with skin, for a seamless finish.
  • The wide variety of skin-tone shades was appreciated by reviewers.
  • The ability to build layer upon layer until you reach your desired level of coverage was considered a plus point by happy reviewers.
  • This foundation from Maybelline provided an impressive pick for its price, and worked well when compared to other brands’ offerings at this price point.

Points to Consider

  • Some reviewers disagreed with Maybelline’s claim that this is a matte foundation, as they found it felt greasy or blocked pores.
  • This foundation doesn’t work well with everyone’s skin type. For people with dry skin to begin with, it can over-dry their skin uncomfortably.
  • Coverage can appear patchy on some people’s skin.
