Review for: Porcelain Ivory more...
So far I've learned to like this foundation not necessarily love it I'm giving it four stars because it has a super great variety of complexions and skin tone colors which porcelain Ivory was the closest to my natural skin tone color that I could find because my face is much more paler than the rest of my skin. First I want to say that it's a pretty decent amount for a 7-ounce little bottle it really does you know allow you to pick the amount you want to apply to your face and being a application bottle and it does swivel for lock and open usage. Now with that being said I do usually like to use a concealer over my blemishes before I apply foundation so I can achieve a smoother airbrushed like it entails look on my face for a Flawless finish. I have noticed that this Foundation does give and leave a dewy look which is good in Winter for a more hydrated look and feel. If you don't like The Dewy look or feel you can easily Pat it with a tissue and it takes care of that issue. I like to apply with my fingertips for a more natural look and setting. I don't necessarily love how much I have to apply for coverage but it does cover what you're trying to hide. I'm sure why this isn't the best foundation for me or for anyone who has the same dry sensitive combination oily skin type as me but it's the best one I found in a drugstore for a decent price in a long time. I do recommend this foundation for quick easy on the night spot go out cover-ups I wouldn't recommend it for a full face Foundation coverage and less your more into the heavyweight makeup look. Also be careful when hugging and kissing your loved one this makeup is transparent if you do not use a setting powder. All in all I feel that this makeup did Justice for what I needed that moment this isn't something I would recommend for long-term use or future use if I do find a better product I will review it so all together my analysis is I don't necessarily hate this Foundation but it's not my all-time favorite yet

Review for: Porcelain Ivory more...
I'm always on the hunt for a good drugstore foundation, so after trying (and not loving) the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation, I thought I would give the Liquid a try...and again, it's just *okay*.

The packaging is nice and it comes with a pump which is a HUGE plus for me. The foundation itself is a little on the thinner side, which is interesting for a foundation that markets itself as "mousse." This foundation, much like the Matte Mousse, is a dewy, medium-at-best coverage foundation. I prefer a fuller coverage/matte look, so this isn't the foundation for me. It did give a nice airbrushed finish to the skin, but the coverage just isn't there. It also didn't last very long on my oily skin, maybe 4 hours at best before needing to re-powder.

I think this could be a decent pick for someone looking for a medium-ish coverage foundation from the drugstore, but I prefer something a little more substantial. I won't be repurchasing!

I can definitely say a little goes a long way for this product. (I use the ecotools brush, there's also a review for that on my page!) It definitely starts out as medium coverage with your first layer but you can easily build it up to full coverage. The finish isn't exactly matte it has more of a sweet like finish and it definitely transfers without setting powder and setting spray. (I use the limelight by alcone setting powder and setting spray) This is a great drugstore foundation and I highly recommend for medium coverage users and some full coverage users that don't mind using a little more product.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
I was really excited to try out this foundation, I've seen it in stores for awhile but I finally gave in and decided to try it. It is extremely silky and smooth and very lightweight, I wouldn't describe it to be like Mousse though. It goes on smoothly with very great coverage, I have two complaints though. Within the first few days of using it I got a massive breakout, it seems to be clogging my pores (the foundation was the only thing I had changed in my routine) and it the ivory is still a little dark on my very pale skin. I won't give this a poor rating because it is a really great product. It just isn't for me. However, I do recommend giving it a try, it might work great for others.

Review for: Nude Beige, Cocoa more...
This foundation I rarely use for foundation I use it as a concealer which is weird I know but it applies so Flippin well and it’s so creamy and thick when I conceal my brows and it only takes a little squeeze of the bottle and it’ll do the job to conceal the brows. As for foundation is not a full coverage but it does cover pimples and zits and just all those nasty stuff on your face that you don’t want and it blends in so well on my face I recommend you to buy it!!!!!

Review for: Natural Ivory more...
This used to be the ONLY foundation that I would use. However, as I've gotten older and my skin has changed and become more dry I can't use it except during the Summers. I love the coverage that this foundation gives and the airbrushed look it gives as well... however if you have ANY dry spots it definitely will accentuate those areas. I typically will mix this foundation with a lumi foundation for more coverage and also so it doesn't accentuate those dry spots. However, if you have more normal to oily skin I would highly recommend this foundation. But if you have combination to dry skin I would recommend either using only during the summer or mixing with a lumi foundation.

Review for: Nude Beige more...
I found out about this foundation from a MUA on instagram! I, myself, have been using it for a couple months now! I have combination skin, and it's very hard for me to find a foundation that stays on and gives me the right amount of coverage. I was praying  that this would finally be my match! I really love that it is very lightweight, and doesn't have that "cakey" feel or look. However, I wish the coverage was a little bit better! I have red areas on my face that I try to hide, and even with using corrective concealers (green) before applying the foundation, I can still see the red areas on my face! Would I purchase this again? Probably not. It is not the right fit for me! But would I recommend this product? Absolutely! If you are someone that needs little coverage, and likes a lightweight, moisturizing foundation, this is perfect for you!

Review for: Cocoa more...
This was the first drugstore foundation I tried.This is one product by Maybelline I wasn't pleased with AT ALL! I thought the bottle was okay. Once I applied it, I looked terrible! It made me look older...the color made me look unhealthy! I just couldn't find anything decent about it other than the price. This discouraged me from trying drug store foundations for a few years. I don't know if it got better since the last time I tried it or not, but I won't attempt to find out! I'm just glad I got over the fear of trying drugstore foundations!

Review for: Nude Beige more...
My favorite drugstore foundation! Smooth airbrush finish. Last almost all night with a good primer and setting spray. Smudges sometimes around my eyes but I think it’s cause I have very oily skin. I have bought this product twice back to back it is my go to foundation at the moment. Very big PRO for me is the packaging perfect for travel or to carry in your makeup bag it has this lock on the top so foundation won’t spill!!

I don’t know how I feel about this product. Formula is definitely something new to me, I tried to like this product but for some reason it’s not to my liking. The formula is soft on the skin and it’s very lightweight. I would say it’s medium coverage but you can totally build up. It did break me out around my cheeks. It also oxidized so I recommend getting a shade lighter. The packaging is nice and it also comes with a pump which is a plus for me. I would say give it a try it might work well for others.
