This foundation gets raved about alot in the beauty community and now I understand (this is going to be another love story i’m afraid). I’m totally head over heels in love with this, it’s my ‘go to’ everyday base. It makes my skin look flawless and poreless (i didn’t mean that to rhyme). As stated before I have relatively normal skin with an oily t-zone; this glides over my skin, doesn’t sink into any lines or pores, infact I would say it makes them less visible. The finish is beautiful aswell, not completely matte, it does dry down, but gives your skin a very natural healthy glow.
The coverage is buildable, I apply mine with a brush normally but is equally lovely with a beauty blender. It’s got great staying power around 4-6 hours on my skin, it’s winter at the moment so my skins not producing much oil, this opinion could well change in the summer. Upon first glance I didn’t think I was going to like the squeezy tube packaging either but it is quite convenient and really good for travelling. Also, can I just talk about the price!? has there been some sort of mistake? This is so affordable, I normally get mine from Boots and its £5.99?! like wtf…anyway I’m not complaining. Ok now the negatives, this is the only thing I’ve heard people complain about; the shade range is a bit whack, Maybelline are notorious for having such a dark shade range, even ivory sometimes can be so orange on pale skin. So be careful when picking out your shade. Luckily I’ve never had this problem, shade 115 is perfect for when I’m more tan and 105 for when I’m pale. I would say that if you are lightish-medium skin tone you will love the range, if you are on the paler side and don’t wear fake tan then you may struggle to find a shade to match you. I would however 100% recommend you try this, whether normal/dry or oily, it seems to be good for all skin types. This is hands down my current favourite drugstore foundation 🙂 As usual I have linked some stores below where you and purchase this.
