I know I've written this so many times by now, but I really do not like wearing foundation. However, sometimes I find I need to. I wanted this Maybelline foundation after reading about it on Makeup Geek.
It comes out of the bottle nicely, not too thick or too runny:
I was really impressed with this foundation! I've worn it many times and used the Sigma F80, my Hakuhodo, and the Beauty Blender sponge, and every time it applied wonderfully. I really love that it blends so well, it doesn't look or feel unnatural at all. I liked that it felt light, but I still felt like it had good coverage. It didn't dry my face out and it made it look much smoother and more radiant than nothing at all. I always use a setting powder, either tinted or translucent, but I tried this without also and it performed well. I didn't have a problem with slipping or changing colour on my face throughout the day.
My shade is Natural Ivory- Light 3, but I also have a swatch of Light 3.5- Nude Beige, as a reference. Although it is just the next number up, the shades are not even close.
And here is me with the foundation on:
The only negative is that here it cost me $20, as opposed to half that in the U.S. but it's still a bargain considering others are $60.
I really like this, remarkably it has transformed me into a foundation fan!
