Maybelline is a really good drugstore brand and I do have some of my favorite products with them. So, when I saw this foundation in the store, I thought I would give it a try.
|To give you an idea about it’s coverage, I applied this on my hand where I had done henna. You can see it doesn’t provide much coverage and has a shiny finishing.|
But only when I started using it did I start regretting. It just wouldn’t dry on my skin. I powdered it and thought it would eventually dry but no. I felt like it was melting off my face and I had to constantly blot my face. One hour passed and it still felt all heavy. I went to the washroom to investigate. My face looked worn out and oily. I tried applying more powder but it just made my skin look all caked up. Finally I just decided to wash it off! I wanted to murder the lady at the counter, I had specifically asked her if it would suit oily skin. I should have researched more online than believe her blindly. Either she was desperately trying to get sales or had no idea about the products she was selling.
Following days I tried applying it with brush and sponge but I would end up washing it off within 3 hours. And then I started breaking out (Great!!! like whatever was happening till now wasn’t enough).
- Budget friendly
The ‘Ugh’ factor
- A BIG NO for oily skin beauties. It wouldn’t dry and melts off from the skin.
- It doesn’t stay long and wears off too fast.
- Made mine and my sister’s (dry) skin break out.
Every skin reacts differently to different products. Mine and my sister’s skin broke out doesn’t mean it might be the same for all but I wouldn’t personally recommend this to anyone.
