Most Helpful Positive Review OMG
I am super oily and I can tell in one day if the foundation bottle will stay or need to be returned. I'm keeping it!
Pros- the coverage is flawless and the wear is something that I can't explain, almost velvety. I'm pleased to say the least.
Cons- The matte look will turn into a dewy look by afternoon; however, dewy and greasy are two very different looks. Dewy means that their is a glow but no separation or sliding. Do even when the dew sets in...it's nice.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointing
I got this when it first launched in this site. I got natural ivory (112) I'm in 112 in the matte & poreless so I thought it'd match. But it does oxidize! I returned for porcelain. It still dries darker. Concealers in top doesn't look right in some areas. Looks heavy around my nose & chin. I am usually oily but since it's been so cold I've been very dry. This really doesn't look good on dry skin! It cakes up around dry patches. Eve between my brows where I have some invisible fuzz from not waxing, it looks awful. I've tried so many different primers/setting sprays & it's just not working for me. Which does suck because if it looked right on my skin I'd love a cheaper alternative to a great full coverage foundation but this just isn't it. I've even tried mixing this with my pro glow & that's the dewiest foundation I own & it doesn't help. Idk. It's just not worth it for me. I think you'd have to have perfect skin for this to work. By 4 hours I was in a store & saw myself in a mirror & holy moly, did I look awful. I just left because I was so embarrassed of how my face looked. My pores looked ginormous & it had separated around my nose (I wasn't oily, Idk what made it break down like that). I just don't know. I wish it worked but it just didn't for me

Ellie from Danbury, CT
I hate this foundation. It didn't blend well at all with my skin. No matter what tool I tried to use it still ended up patchy and inconsistent. I wouldn't recommend, I'm going to try and return this.

I got the shade 118 and it's a perfect match for my skin color. Finding a drugstore brand with full coverage is great. I have ance scars and hyperpigmentation and this foundation covers it. I also love that it's oil free and it lasts all day
I would not buy this product again
afsmartinez from thomasville, nc
It dried out my skin and it looked much lighter on than i expected
Not for pale girls
Itsbubbi from South Dakota
If you are a really pale girl I wouldn't recommend this at all I'm combination to dry skin and it's so dark on my skin I picked the lightest shade and it's a thumbs down for me
Mbsalt from Nyc
I bought this foundation and find that its amazing. I wear it every day. A little goes a long way and covers everything + so easy to apply i usually use a stippling brush. It stays on well and when you apply blush it looks stunning.
Not a fan
Gabs from Denver, CO
Saw this a lot on social media and it lots of people claim it was good for their oily skin but it was so patchy and rubbed off within the hour. I had patches of rub off on my cheeks and nose after an hour of wearing a mask. Also color is not really true once you put on. Wayyy lighter in real life than looking at the bottle abs oxidizes more on the orange side. Not super pleased
I would buy this product again
Jaateeh from Dallas, TX
The cost would make me purchase it again.
I would purchase this product over & over
Angel from Salinas California
This product works great with either a beauty blender or brush, both give you a full coverage finish.
I have purchased this over and over
MorganNoelle from Lewistown, PA
I love this foundation! For a drugstore foundation, it really does do a good job at giving you a full coverage look. I do have acne prone skin and it does not break me out at all. However, I do mix this foundation with Clinque's beyond perfecting foundation and it looks amazing.
Full Coverage & Long lasting
Nessa🌻 from Palmdale
Great for long wear special event makeup..Works for dry skin with good moisturizing primer and non cakey with light hand..Photographs amazing
Transfers and doesn't last...
Arely from texas
This foundation looks so good when you first put it on, and even for the first 3/4 hrs... i have normal skin now, and it gets pretty oily... also you can't even lightly touch it, because you will remove that part of foundation 🤷🏻♀️
Best foundation ever!!

This is the only foundation I would use

I love this product. So does everyone else most of the time its sold out in 2 days.
Rivals high end brands
CRomo from Seal Beach
Great everyday foundation. Full coverage - covers everything. Reminds me of Estée Lauder at a third of the price.
Better than most!
Sweetrin from Florida
I love trying new foundations and rarely repurchase the same one but I'll keep buying this. I regularly choose it over much more expensive foundations. It looks so natural despite it being high coverage. I have dryyyy skin and this has never caked me up.
A really nice foundation!
Steph from Alabama
This foundation was nice for me. It blended well and has nice coverage. It settled a bit into the fine lines in my forehead, though, and foundations rarely do that to me. It oxidized a teeeensy bit on me, but not horribly. Honestly if you wear contour, bronzer, blush, etc you probably won't notice any oxidation. Bonus points for having a pump on the bottle!!
I would repurchase again
Lily from Indiana
I love this foundation! It's matte and full coverage. I use my wet sponge to apply for a more sheer coverage bc my skin isn't bad, just to even out. But you can full coverage this and it looks amazing ! I would say make sure to prep your skin and hydrate. I have oily skin and I used to use matte primers but now I use a hydrating primer and then use this foundation for a very natural but full coverage look. A little goes a long way and use a brush if you want more full coverage since a sponge will soak some. It's very long lasting and doesn't look too chalky. It doesn't oxidize on me. And I love the shades bc I'm Latina with a yellow undertone.
For a particular skin type!
Kels from Georgia
Okay, at first glance I was not sure about this product being fair skinned it is very challenging to find a foundation light enough and not fully pink under toned. I pull more neutral to yellow, so I decided on the color porcelain. I thought maybe it was going to be too yellow toned and nope it was a perfect match. When I applied it appeared way to light and as it settled it did oxidize some. Which made it a perfect match for me but something to be aware of. This foundation drys down velvet Matt so if you are not oily I would not recommend powdering, I even went lighter hand with the powder. For me it applied smooth, filled in pores, great color match. I don't have really any dry patches but the one small one I did I can see where this foundation would cling oddly. It performs like a high end foundation and it's gorgeous on the skin. I have been using covergirl 3- in 1 for years but I think this may be my holy grail. Worth trying for the price tag I can see though why others would find this problematic
Sarah from Michigan
I first bought this foundation about maybe 2 years ago? I don't exactly remember, but I loved it! I have very dry and sensitive skin and it did wonders for me! I'm about to buy it again because I completely forgot about it and saw that mine expired. If you are fair, I would say try to go up a shade because maybelline foundations always turn up orange if you use your normal fair shade.
Good and bad
Hotmama from Louisiana
It's hard to find your exact match in drug store. So I don't mind mixing in another foundation to help make it perfect. But it is full coverage. I actually really like it because it is still lightweight feeling at the same time. I love maybelline
Miri33 from Palm Springs
This is the best foundation ever!!! I always buy $50-$70 foundations and this foundation is the best drugstore it even beats my expensive foundations I have
Great Matte foundation
Mrs.AE86 from Riverside
Great Matte foundation. Very full coverage one you find your right shade. It does oxidize so keep that in mind
color scheme is off and not suitable for super dry skin
Kimmy003 from Austin TX
I tried 4 shades and none of them matched my skin because they were either a) too pink or b) too yellow. My normal shade in any foundation is usually natural beige but for this line, the shade looked too orange??? How is that possible?? I decided to get buff beige and use a green color corrector. It looks nice on skin once freshly applied (I have dry skin btw) then becomes a bit cakey in certain areas. Definitely prehydrate ALOT. Good price for a Demi matte finish. Beneficial to people with smooth skin, pink undertones and are oily.
Beth18 from California
This was suggested by an Ulta employee and it honestly made my dry/patchy spots worse. It also looked super chalky.
Made me look orange

I did not like it.
