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 use this product on a daily basis and I love it full coverage and light weight and stay on all day
Excellent budget full-coverage foundation w/issues
ShylyBrave from Colorado
I've had to tweak this foundation to get it to work for me but since I have, I do love it. I need to add a few drops of facial oil to get it to look amazing on my dryish skin but it still lasts all day and looks freshly applied with good setting powder/spray. My biggest hurdle was the color. Light Tan has the best yellow undertone for me but a little too dark after oxidizing for my light to light-medium skin tone. I mix it with a little bit of Porcelain to lighten it up. I wish I didn't need to haul two bottles around with me when I travel for work but the finish, coverage, price, and lasting power makes it worth it (I guess.)
Worth a try, but beware of oxidation
eBunni from Colorado
This is a pretty decent drugstore foundation, and is worth trying. It offers pretty full and buildable coverage and lasts several hours. However, the cons are that it oxidized more than any other foundation I've tried, so go lighter than usual, and it is quite drying. I have combination dry skin and I have noticed patches around my dryer areas.
Best Best Ever!
Mezabreed from Fontana
I can make a LONG list of foundations I've used by Cover Girl, Revlon, L'Oréal, etc. and even Maybelline always looking for the perfect one! Look no further! I've been using this 24 hr SuperStay for years now and you I just love love the product! It has a medium to full coverage and it's buildable. It isn't thin and runny and they have so many colors to chose from. I highly recommend this product to my friends.
My favorite foundation ever!
Ella from New York, NY
If you're considering buying this foundation, here's your sign to get it! I've tried so many different foundations and never liked how they looked on my skin, whether it was because of the formula or the color. But this foundation is my holy grail. It lasts all day even during the hottest days in the summer, and you can build it up to have really full coverage, but one layer has a ton of coverage on its own. It is a little bit dry, but if you have oily skin or apply a hydrating primer first, it is perfect! I have olive skin that gets pale in the winter but very tan in the summer, so I have shade Light Beige 118 and Warm Nude 128, which match me great in the respective seasons. The undertones match my skin perfectly and I always get compliments on how nice my skin looks! This foundation is similar to the TooFaced Born This Way foundation, but at a better price!

Best drug store foundation I've tried so far!!
maddie from redwood city
The coverage is there somewhat but it clung onto every tiny little bump on my face and the foundation oxidized quite a bit honestly i tried liking it but it just didn't work out also the shade range was poor so that was another problem of mines.
Best drugstore foundation
Anna from Dallas, Tx
I love this foundation so much! I have a very oily skin and have acne scarring and it covers it so good! Full coverage for me!
Best product ever
Julia from Lyndhurst, NJ
This product is HOLY GRAIL. It is super lightweight and blends in so well. It also has a really nice matte finish. And its full coverage.
I found a great product
Niki from Fl
The product is a bit darker but looks completely amazing!
Good coverage, my skin hates it though :(
Megan from Southern Maine
I LOVE Maybelline and the finish/application of this foundation. I binge NikkieTutorials who did a review on this a few years ago and I bought it crossing my fingers that she was right about it. I love the full coverage finish it gives, but it settles into my smile lines in 0.2 seconds and tends to break me out after using it once a month. My sensitive skin is also always left red after taking it off. So this will remain in my collection as a "cheap full coverage foundation" but will never be my holy grail. If you are one that has amazing skin with no breakouts, pores, lines, dryness, or sensitivity, you'll probably like this. I wouldn't not get it just because of this review :)
I will be returning this bottle - maybe exchanging
C from Illinois
I will be returning this bottle. I have bought and used Maybelline face makeup for years and this was the same number/color I have bought before, but this one was Orange!
Perfect for mask wear
Mel from Chicago
I wanted a little coverage while wearing a mask and remembered seeing the adds saying it won't transfer to clothes. I like it because it doesn't feel heavy and you don't need to use a lot. Even with humility, it holds up well.
Busta415 from San jose
Great coverage however this broke me out like crazy in less than 3 hours !!! I washed it off immediately and sure enough bumps al over my forehead .
SBEAR45 from San Jose Ca
It applied well . It was hard to blend at first but eventually it worked . You just have to work fast with this foundation before it starts to settle otherwise it won't blend so easily .
I liked it up until it broke me out . I was pimple free on minute and then I had all these bumps .
BEST FOUNDATION FOR OILY SKIN EVER
maddie02 from Philadelphia, PA
first of all: I wear foundation every single day. I've used almost every foundation (high end especially) you can think of. This foundation has by far surpassed any foundation I've used. (Yes the $60 ones). I literally tell all my friends to buy it. I'm normally super oily and my skin is textured (hence why I wear foundation daily). This is the ONLY foundation I've ever had that kept me from being oily throughout the day while making my skin look literally smoother than ever. I wish I could do more to say what a greater product this is bc it is the best thing I've ever discovered (not trying to be cheesy just really wish more people would stop wasting money on high end products when THIS EXISTS). Maybelline THANK YOU!! Side note: I bought two shades and mix them together- highly recommend if you have trouble matching yours!
not good, but not horrible
jenna from mi
this is a decent foundation for the price don't get me wrong. the only problem with it, it comes off shiny and doesn't make my face look smooth! it cakes up and i have to blend what seems like FOREVER to make it look decent.
LASTS THROUGH ANYTHING!
Bri from Florida
I have found my new holy grail foundation. The coverage is incredible, the finish is gorgeous, and it WONT BUDGE! I gave it the ultimate test: 2 theme parks in 90° heat, while wearing a face mask, and riding water rides & girl, that stuff did not move!!! When I got home and took off my mask, my makeup looked how it did when I left that morning! Highly recommend!

So I tried this foundation for the first time, and this is my first "full coverage" foundation that I've used, and I was a little nervous about the product looking cakey because that's what I've dealt with in the past with medium coverage foundations. I used a little less than a full pump for my face and I do have some texture aswell as acne. It covered up most of the redness, and it didnt feel as if it clogged my pores, but that could be due to the primer I used. Either way, this product is pretty nice!
I will buy this product again!
Christina from Tx
It covers well and wears well too. One pump is all I need to get a good coverage. Two for nights out or longer days I want fuller coverage for.
emilyys from San Diego
My go to foundation! You can use this for natural makeup or full glam. I know this is a matte finish but it works perfect on my dryer skin. I've tried soo many high end foundations and this one is just as good if not BETTER! I love how it's also non comedogenic too so it doesn't break you out! Even if I try out new foundations I always end up going back to this one lol. Must have for everyone!!
Em from San Diego
I LOVE this foundation. You could wear a light amount or layer it on and it'll look great. However, the pump on this splatters everywhere. At first I thought it was the one foundation bottle, but after over a year of using this foundation, it always dirties me. It's not that big of a deal but it does tend to get my clothes stained.
not what it's hyped up to be
motomom from Idaho
I got one of the fairest shades and it was still orange on the skin
drying. wasn't my fav
I would buy again!
Char from Cleveland, Ohio
I like this full coverage foundation. color match is good
Anna from Texas
My favorite foundation, I'd say it's almost the same formula as my NARS foundation which I love
