Most Helpful Positive Review Best Drugstore Full Coverage Foundation
Almost Holy Grail, if I can find the perfect shade. This 128 warm nude color oxidized on me & I've never had a Drugstore Foundation oxidize on me (Only Dior Forever Foundation oxidizes on me" Color starts a bit too light for my Medium warm skin, but still looks wearable, but then starts to turn a neutral darker beige after 5hrs and doesn't look as nice. So to make my Holy Grail foundation I mix this with my other Fave Drugstore Foundation Cover Girl Healthy Elixir and omg both of these together have a beautiful flawless finish. The Coverage together is excellent, not too Matte or Dewey but flawless. I know It's probably too much for most people, but I am a full coverage girl with a lot to cover.
I just ordered Natural Beige "which also claims to be a warm undertone" for medium skin & hope if it does oxidize it oxidizes to a warmer tone & not a neutral like the warm nude did.
Overall this is the Best Full coverage Drugstore Foundation I've tried & ive tried mostly all of them. I never liked the Fit Me Matte & Poreless since it never worked for me, it looked thick & heavy with a weird thick textured finish (but not full coverage) Its hard to explain. But this is nothing like the Fit Me. So if Fit Me didn't work for you, I'm sure if you can find the right color, this will be the Bomb! Yayyy Maybelline you did a Great Job on this!
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

I did not like it.
The best affordable foundation!!
Amy from Tennessee
This is a wonderful foundation for the price, you really can't find a higher quality affordable foundation! It is buildable and it does not look or feel thick.
The best high coverage foundation ever!
Molly from Phoenix
This foundation is comparable to the Estée Lauder double wear foundation but more affordable. It has high coverage and it is extremely long wearing. It doesn't sink into my fine lines and gives my skin a filtered appearance. I wear it to work where I tend to sweat a lot and I also work long 12 hour shifts. This foundation lasts all day! I've bought this time and time again. I highly recommend trying it as it is inexpensive as well.
TRaw from Florence, KY
I have bought this foundation twice and both times it has been too warm toned.
Tray-cee from Riverton, UT
This product held up so well! Loved it. Was not drying which is amazing for a full coverage foundation. Did not crease. I used in conjunction with their super stay powder. Great touch up! This foundation did not separate over my oily pores (an issue I have with foundation)
I also used the NYX primer and did a light exfoliation before applying this.
Leah from Wisconsin
This matched my skin color perfectly. I usually have a hard time finding the right match without it looking too pale or orange. It's priced well and affordable.
Alexis from San Antonio
This product is great & the color is beautiful!
XG from Oregon
I have oily skin and honestly with the right primer I love this foundation. It's full coverage and blends perfectly. The only thing I would say is to go a shade lighter because it does oxidize.
mallin from Utah
Really not sure how this works so well with my dry skin but it's perfect. I definitely use moisturizer right before every time. I have tried so many other foundations (including urban decay) and this one stays on better. I think it just depends on your skin type but it is really vibing with mine (combination skin. More often dry because I live in Utah)
My new favorite!
Tee A from Maryland
I was stuck on (still am) the matte and poreless fit me foundation. I love the superstay powder foundation, so I wanted to give this a go. It pairs very very well with the superstay powder and I only need one pump. I like it better then the fit me because of the pump and I feel like I get a little less oily with this foundation.
NOT for dry skin!!!
Jess Moone from Mesa, AZ
I tried this product because of all the glowing reviews. Let me tell you, it is not suited for dry skin at all. I put it on and immediately thought "well this sure isn't working". It made my patchy spots worse and my problem areas more noticeable.
Good for drugstore!
Michelle from Ca
Best drugstore foundation I've tried! Good coverage and it feels good on the skin
This product lives up to its name and is worth every cent!
Anaiah from Roseburg, Oregon
I have red, dry skin. this foundation makes my skin look smooth and healthy, and covers up all of the redness completely. it is so smooth and makes you look flawless. i am in love with this foundation! It is completely worth the price. Ignore the bad reviews, this is an amazing product.
foundation great, bottle broken

received defective bottle
Holy Grail Foundation
Jaqueline from west covina
okay ... let me just say not just because I'm a makeup lover n hoarder n the fact that I'm a full coverage type of chick... that this foundation is the best hands down.. beats my expensive foundations all the time. I have gone thru maybe 20 bottles or more of this lol. I love to mix it with other foundations as well. the coverage is insane. NO not cakey at all. unless you have bad acne prone skin any foundation is not going to sit very well. my favorite mix is the morphe foundation and this one. and let me tell u the coverage n it looks sooooo smooth. I love it. I get compliments all the time. try it.. you can't beat the price!
Excellent on my dry skin.
Sweetestex from Florida
This foundation never fails me. I use a good moisturizer and primer and this looks beautiful every time.
Slaying foundation! ☆☆☆☆☆
Kim from Seattle, WA
Love it, and quick tip, if you love this foundation, but have dry skin. just add 1 to 2 drops of oil and viola!
Dry as the desert
kmccull from Birmingham
Horrible look once it dries down. Looks cakey and just dry. Wouldn't repurchase.
Awful Flashback, Oxidizes, Cakey
Sarah from Virginia
I have fair skin and this has the worst flashback seriously. I was out and I looked like a ghost when I saw the pictures. Also it is very full coverage, so I will give it that but it's so cakey feeling. Feels like makeup. I have normal leaning to dry skin. Also make sure to get a shade or two up cause it turns orange like crazy.
Loved it, but... :(
Karina from Arizona
Okay so phew I've been on a wild ride w this rollercoaster. when i lived in Colorado this was SO good on my skin. looked so amazing a my Elf Putty Primer and Sonia Kashuk sponge. when you have normal hydrated skin it's beautiful. but as soon as i moved to Arizona my skin for like very very dry and i kept my routine the exact same, it looked cakey and just flakes off in my extra dry patches. no matter how much i hydrated my skin and everything it still was rough looking. i even tried brush application and it was just bad. i might go back to it at some point my skin is just too dry and this definitely is more of a matte foundation.
Oxidizes to orange
Stardustgypsy from Buffalo NY
I was looking for a liquid foundation with staying power. Unfortunately, even after applying a primer, this "cool fair" shade turned to a sickly yellow-orange. So I can't speak as to whether or not the foundation had staying power because I had to wash it off and apply my old foundation. It did blend well though -- so that's why it gets a two-star rating from me.
Amber from Wichita, KS
This is a good foundation for me. I have combination skin and this is very light feeling after applied. Doesn't feel caked on, even if needing to layer. I use a brush to apply. It offers good coverage, but does not break out my skin like other foundations.
The only issue is the bottle design. You have so much more product in the bottle with the pump design and have to pry it off to not waste.
I wanted to love it...
Maria D. from New Mexico
Unfortunately this didnt work for me. Wasnt able to keep up with my oily skin and the application was patchy. I gave it several ties because the color was near perfect, but it didnt like my skin. I tied brush and sponges, and nothing seemed to get it to apply correctly. I so wanted to like it, but sadly couldn't.Gave 3 Stars because the shade range is pretty good and the price is also pretty good.
Les from Riverside
This foundation is amazing! It feels light on your skin and gives amazing full coverage! Every time I wear it, it stays on beautifully all day!
I buy this product over and over again
