Product Review Maybelline

I ran out of my Make Up Forever Foundation.  When I went to go buy it I found out they replaced the one I usually get with the “PhotoFinish” formula.  I tried it but didn’t like it as well.   It’s not a bad foundation but I felt it was almost too sheer.  It didn’t cover imperfections as well as the old formula. 

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish, Porcelain Ivory

Wandering around Walgreens I thought I’d give Maybelline a try.  I bought the Dream Liquid Mousse foundaton and tried it last week.    Went on great, very smooth finish, color was perfect and felt like silk (though a tad heavy feeling).  However, it made my normal to oily skin break out like crazy.  At first it didn’t occur to me that it was the foundation but the more I used it the more breakouts I got.  When discontinued my skin started healing immediately.  Cost 9.50 plus a week of broken-out skin. 

So my recommendation for this product falls under the “oh HELL no!”  category.   Use at your own risk!  0 stars! 


I went to Sephora today and got Nars foundation.  They have 3 different types:  sheer glow, sheer nude and firming.  I got the sheer glow in Deauville.  The sheer matte and sheer glow are light to medium coverage and the firming is a full coverage foundation.  It was color-matched to my skin.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

This is the description from Nordstrom:  NARS reinvents foundation with a modern formulation designed to enhance your natural complexion without masking it. The weightless formula glides on effortlessly, blurring imperfections and evening out skin tone for the ultimate sophisticated finish that allows your skin’s natural beauty to shine though. Sheer Glow is a glowing, satin-finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage.  

It got 5 stars from reviewers.   Wish me luck.  Cost 42.00
