I loved this product! The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Matte Makeup was the perfect addition to my makeup collection. Upon application it completely smoothed out my complexion. It has a very velvety and light texture making it a summer staple. I even wore it to the gym to test how well it would hold up under extremely sweaty conditions and it performed really well. Unlike traditional matte foundations where your skin feels really tight and dry, this makeup feels very light and airy- almost as if you're wearing nothing! It also looks undetectable. I would recommend this product if you're looking for a light coverage but an even complexion. The claims of the shade adjusting technology do appear to be true. I originally received a medium shade but felt it was too light at first, now I believe the medium would be a perfect winter the shade. Upon first application I felt medium deep would be too dark considering it stood out noticeably when I first applied it. After a few minutes of wear it appears to match my skin tone well, perfect for after a summers day tan. If you have drier skin I would recommended applying a moisturizer before wearing this because the texture of the product could cause it to stick to dry patches in an unflattering manner.
Ghost of Christmas Past
Where do I begin? I was super excited to try Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Instant Perfector 4-in-1 Matte, I received it for free, in exchange for an honest review. The packaging is petite and very appealing. Upon opening the product , upon first glance, it appeared to be my exact skin hue. Now, this is where it gets somewhat quirky, upon application, I felt like the Ghost of Christmas past.
Hear me out, at first, it was smooth in texture and application was super easy, but after the product had time to sit, it gave my face such a chalky appearance. In terms of comparison to other products I have tried, I probably wouldn't buy this product on a whim as it doesn't compare to what I've used in the past , other Maybelline products included. I've typically had great experiences with their products and the finishes!
I would use this in conjunction with another foundation as a mix, it does provide some full coverage, but by itself it is a bit too chalky. I would recommend this product with exceptions, someone may love this product and it may be the very thing they need, but it didn't work for me. I would prefer not to be the Ghost of Christmas past when it comes to my makeup.
Coconut oil and it's derivatives free
Finally a makeup product for people with allergies to p coconut and it's derivatives. I find that the texture of the foundation it's weird I don't really care for the whipped texture but I love the foundation I don't really have to use a powder, my only critic is the shade range like come on maybelline I know you can do better. If they extended the shade range that would be great but please need the ingredients the same it's a huge win for coconut free people
I had high hopes for this product. When I swatched it on my arm, it blended really well and the color shifted more to my skin tone. It also feels really nice and light. My main issue is that idk how to apply this product to my face!! I have tried using a beauty blender and a brush, and both times the product just kind of pilled and I was not able to apply it! I think applying it with your fingers would probably be best, but personally I don't like doing that. Maybe I need to keep trying but it has been a pain trying to figure out how to blend this into my face.
i got the lightest shade and although i love the texture of it, it was literally orange.
this feels so light and lasts for a long time. makes my skin look FLAWLESS!!
If you have really oily skin and large pores and like a matte look and don't want to spend a lot of time putting on makeup, this product is for you!!! It literally cuts out 4 steps!! If you don't have the four issues I just mentioned, you probably will hate it (please don't ruin it for the rest of us with your bad reviews!) Thanks!
