Most Helpful Positive Review Great daily wear!
I bought this because I wanted something to wear every day with a but more coverage than a BB cream. The color match looks completely natural. The coverage is medium - covers uneven skin tone but moderate pimples are still visible. But it can definitely be layered (I put on far too much one day!) It's almost smooth enough to be rubbed in with your fingers like a BB cream but not quite (and you'll end up using too much.) I LOVE the applicator tip!! So easy to control how much you use, no mess patch of foundation on the back of my hand, just a few lines drawn across my forehead, cheeks, and chin, and I am ready to go. You'll want a good hydrating primer as it can feel a bit tight on the skin later in the day, and a setting spray to keep it around.
One note - I dont know if it's because of the high SPF but sometimes I have trouble blending this on my nose and it looks like it's peeling.
Overall for the price I am thrilled to have this in my daily routine because it allows me to cut it down to 3 minutes!
Most Helpful Critical Review You know what they say .... third times the charm.
Trying out this foundation at first I thought the color was going to work out. As the day went on the color looked pretty orange/oxidized on me. I tried wearing it throughout the day and am sad to say my face ended up looking dry and kind of cakey even with translucent setting powder. I only set the foundation due to the SPF and not wanting to look like a hot oily mess later.
I think the idea behind this foundation was fantastic! I just think they need to re-evaluate and re-formulate this foundation's formula. The colors are also a bit odd how they scale it out. In the bottle the color seems to be okay but once on the face it's a whole different story. A lot of locations which carry it do not have any testers so that makes it harder.
If you have dry or yellow-undertone skin this sadly won't be for you. You can try it out but for me I just feel it went South as the day went by. I literally tried it two times and haven't used it since.

Good foundation. Good weight. Not too heavy. Good coverage
Catherine from Minnesota
I love how easy this is to apply. You can use a small amount and get an easy lightweight look or you can build up to full coverage. I use it with the elf poreless putty primer and my skin looks flawless.
It does have a sunscreen scent, so if that bothers you it's something to keep in mind.
It pairs nicely with their Age Rewind concealor.
I have light, neutral skin and 120 Classic Ivory is the perfect shade.
Unflattering and sticky
Meesh from Va
This does not have a smooth finish. It creates texture out of nowhere. It also smells awful. Super unflattering and had barely any coverage. There are no shades for light yellow skin tones. Classic ivory is orange. :P
I would buy this product again
Di from Maryo
Use it eco. It stays on and looks good all
Ryann from Philadelphia
Very lightweight on the skin. I find it to be medium coverage and gives a natural finish. The only thing that I would say is that the shades online are not close to what they are in person. I use Toffee and it matches me perfectly but the shade online looks very different then it does in person.
One of the best!!!
ChiDoll from Atlanta, GA
I absolutely adore this foundation! I use my Fenty Skincare and no primer then apply this foundation and my face looks so flawless! It provides medium coverage and I use my E.L.F. medium oval complexion brush (match made in heaven) to apply. Only con I have is a good setting powder is needed if you don't want to look like a oily mess.
SAVE YOUR MONEY
Lauren from SCS
This sucks it feels old and your skin feels dirty. Sticking to the maybelline fit me
Sam V! from Texas
I have acne pro combo skin and this foundation is my holy grail! I was so tired of my foundation having to be cakey and heavy because I wanted full coverage but this foundation covers so well and if you aren't satisfied you can always add more of the product and it never looks too heavy! This foundation is like wearing a second skin and I'm not afraid of it coming off or touching my face when I have it on! It works perfectly with my Tarte Shape Tape concealer! I just can't stop raving about it!
Better than expected !
Meggg from Tampa
I didn't think this was going to be full coverage but it was ! Lasted me all night. Love it. Great price too!
Love this foundation
Tillie from WA
I have oily skin. Typically, my makeup melts in a few hours. I do use primer under my makeup. This one keeps on longer and not much transfer to my face mask. Not too heavy, but good coverage.
Won't Fail You
Lola from Oregon
This wears like a dream - it's super easy to blend out and it gives medium to full coverage on the first layer. It is super comfortable to wear throughout the day and it's not transferring everywhere like other foundations do.
GAVE ME A BAD ALLERGIC REACTION
Brittany from Nevada
I wouldn't say I have very sensitive skin, and I had really high hopes for this but it gave me such a horrible allergic reaction. When I put it on, I did really like how natural it looked but during the day my face felt so itchy and then when I took it off at the end of the day my face was completely red and bumpy, immediately took medicine and put an ice pack on my face to cool it down luckily after a few days my skin calmed down but if you have sensitive skin or in general BEWARE!!!!!
BargainHuntress from Panorama City, CA
I finally found a foundation that meets all my needs. Maybelline seems to be working for me as far as foundation and powder. I am one of those dry skin people amongst a world of oily skin people and I have tried a lot of foundation that says it is hydrating and still leaves me with flaky skin after an hour. This one doesn't and goes on smooth and is full coverage. But the main reason why I also bought it is the high spf 50 which you can only find in korean makeup products. I'm glad I don't have to wait a month to purchase a foundation from korea from now on. High skin protection from the sun is the key to keeping a healthy and youthful skin, the koreans get it and so does Maybelline.
Ariel from Texas
Love it. Highly recommend
Felicia from TX
I've never used this product before, but heard good reviews so went out and bought it. I like it, it feels lightweight even though it's full coverage, I like the way the spf smells in it, and its buildable!
Ruby from Alvarado Tx
I have been using this foundation and it blends amazing with the whole routine. It's more on the light coverage but I love it. Perfect for your everyday routine. Also the smell is lite so you can hardly smell it.
sassy yassy from Asheboro, North Carolina
I used this product for my graduation and it lasted a long time! Despite being in the sun I did not find that it got cakey or dripped off. It is very lightweight so I needed to use a bit more foundation on my under eyes and blemishes (I don't use concealer) but it still did not look cakey. It smells a bit like sunscreen but it is not strong at all. This foundation did not crease under my eyes or on my lids like others!
Dupe for IT cosmetics your skin but better cc cream
Paige from Oswego, NY
I love it! If you're a fan of IT cosmetics your skin but better cc cream then you will love this! Definitely good to have a cheaper dupe to wear on the daily!
My regular foundation . . .
Pokey from Castle Rock, CO
I tried this product because it resembles (kinda dupe for a very expensive product) that gets all the press.
Love the consistency of it and I put it on with a sponge wait just a few seconds before powder. This is my go to permanent foundation.
The best of drugstore makeup!
Teacher Shannon from West Virginia
This is one of the best drugstore foundations Ive purchased. It is medium coverage and goes on so lightweight. The spa 50 is a wonderful bonus that I love! Don't hesitate to buy.
Would not buy this again
? from Dubuque
Did not like this product
This is actually really good
Bri from Fort Myers
It's got a solid medium coverage and great SPF. Only con is that it has a weird smell but it goes away after your blend it out.
YOU NEED THIS
Lex from Houston
I love this fountain soo much. It is very light weight, your skin will look like skin but better and it is buildable coverage. For someone with an oily t zone and dry skin this foundation last all day. I just use my beauty blender or a brush to apply this and I set it with powder and it does not look cakey at all. Definitely recommend this for an everyday foundation!!
My Everyday Foundation
Ollie from Texas
I wear this everyday for work. It's medium coverage and more of a natural finish on me. It's lightweight and the sunscreen is a nice addition. I have combo skin and use elf putty primer and setting powder with this.
Lightweight light coverage
Amandaaaaaaa from Texas
Best for outdoor use and evens out the skin tone you can use concealer for full coverage! I love this stuff great for daily use! SML_X0 put me on and I'm just stock piling this like toilet paper!
