For a long time ago, I haven’t been reviewing face powder and foundation for the reason that I don’t use nor buy them anymore. But this item has caught my attention and awaken my curiosity so I tried it and decided to make a review for it. Since college, I’d been hearing from my classmates that Maybelline foundation is really good and this was the one I always see on their hands when retouching.
It’s packaging is very neat and simple in a periwinkle pact and a mint-green box. According to its packaging, it is suited for Asian skin, fragrance-free, oil free, non-comedogenic, does not clog pores and suitable for sensitive skin; it can also conceal pores, blemishes spots while giving the skin a fresh look all day, prevents skin darkening and perfect oil control with matte finish. Well I can say that the manufacturer of it has a very good sales because their item is really good and they were able to describe it a mini box! When I tried it for the first time, without anything on my face, I noticed that the shade is really perfect for my skin tone.
I seldom use natural shades because it tends to be darker for me instead I use light beige. But this one is different. It looks darker as a whole as I see it on the pact but when I applied it, it blends well on my skin and looks very natural while covering the red spots from pimples and other skin blemishes. It also minimized the appearance of my pores, though it tends to settle on dry areas of my face so I need to pat it really well.
It is non-oily compared to other foundations that I’ve tried before and very light looking even when I apply a little bit more. I was also surprised that it was able to conceal my eye bags without the use of concealer. So far I love how it makes my skin neat, fresh and smooth even after hours.
Truly this powder is worth the price and I was really impressed with it. I truly love it from now. It’s like a love at first try! hahaha Though it is scentless, simple, and low-priced, I can say that it can really excel over the expensive ones. This is a must try, ladies!
