  • I'm not even sure what prompted me to try this Maybelline product since I almost never have a good experience with this line of cosmetics
  • I think part of me still equates it to cheap drug store makeup, but then I always end up feeling like I'm justified in feeling that way, because that's kind of how Maybelline tends to act, at least with my skin
  • I have a few friends who swear up and down that Maybelline cosmetics are absolutely the best they've tried, and I guess that usually spurs me to go buy something and give it a shot, because I like working off recommendations from famiy and friends
  • Far more expensive than any of the Revlon products I've used, so I don't guess I can continue to consider Maybelline a cheap drugstore cosmetic anymore
  • I might try this again in the future to see if they've done anything differently to perfect the line, but as of right now, with the three color options, I can't see using this again when I know that the lightest color they have isn't light enough

      I’m not even sure what prompted me to try this Maybelline product since I almost never have a good experience with this line of cosmetics. I think part of me still equates it to cheap drug store makeup, but then I always end up feeling like I’m justified in feeling that way, because that’s kind of how Maybelline tends to act, at least with my skin. I think I was already expecting it to faily miserably before I even started it, which is really pretty sad, I suppose. I have a few friends who swear up and down that Maybelline cosmetics are absolutely the best they’ve tried, and I guess that usually spurs me to go buy something and give it a shot, because I like working off recommendations from famiy and friends. I should know better.

      I have very oily skin and I’m pretty prone to breakouts because of it, so I need a powder that’s going to minimize the look of pores, cover blemishes well and control an oily condition. Even my trusted Revlon ColorStay


      powder doesn’t do all those things perfectly, but it comes pretty close and I’m always on the lookout for something that can do it even better. I was hoping this was one of those instances, especially considering the $15 price tag on this powder. Far more expensive than any of the Revlon products I’ve used, so I don’t guess I can continue to consider Maybelline a cheap drugstore cosmetic anymore.

      I bought this powder in “light”. Unfortunately, there’s only three color options, and that’s one of them, so if you fall somewhere in between, you’re pretty much out of luck. I don’t know why Maybelline doesn’t understand that there are thousands of tones of skin, and there’s no way only three colors is going to provide natural coverage. luckily for me, though, because I’m so pale, “light” usually covers it it. Not in this case. The powder is applied very smoothly, no doubt about it, but it’s definitely not a natural coverage because the color is off. It has a very pink tone to it that I ...


      • don’t like at all, and I end up having to cover my entire neck with this product all the way down to the collar of my shirt because it doesn’t blend naturally into my real skin tone.

        Also, I find it looks a little caked on, even though it’s just a powder. I don’t think you’re even supposed to use it as a wet/dry powder, but it almost has the appearance of one on my skin (I find those to be too much for me). It’s used to perfect and set foundation, so I’m not sure this is meant to be a stand alone product. If there were more color options and I wasn’t using this over another foundation, I might consider buying it again, because I really did think it covered pretty sufficiently. It went on very easily. I didn’t have to keep building and building to get the coverage I was looking for. I think it only looked cakey because I was using it over a foundation and it wasn’t a foundation in the Maybelline

        line of cosmetics.

        I really do wish they had more color options, like an ivory, without any real pink tones in it, because that might be a much better fit for me, and I think I could even get away, on light breakout days, with using only this powder and not a foundation, and then it wouldn’t look so caked on like makeup piled on top of makeup. I might try this again in the future to see if they’ve done anything differently to perfect the line, but as of right now, with the three color options, I can’t see using this again when I know that the lightest color they have isn’t light enough. However, I do have to say I was pleased that this wasn’t a completely failed experiment! It covered well, and only looked caked on, I think, because of the foundation I applied this over. It didn’t feel greasy on my skin and actually felt very light, so there are some points in its favor. Hopefully they’ll improve it a bit more, though. 7
