Hi everyone
Monsoon is here in full swing and while all that is good and well monsoon does bring its fair share of humdity in the air does demanding a change in the makeup routine. What works in the summer will not not work during he monsoon and what works now will definitely not work during the winters. The reason I mention this is because this foundation sat in my vanity for a long time because I bought it at the wrong time. But I rediscovered it in the summer months and thought about reviewing it for you all.
First off lets see what maybelline has to say about this foundation.

  • Air-whipped liquid provides perfecting coverage for 100% poreless skin
  • Ideal for normal skin
  • Oil-free, fragrance-free,  Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic – won’t clog pores, safe for sensitive skin
  • Okay so lets start:

PRICE:  RS.575 FOR 30 ML

PACKAGING: I love using liquid foundations they are my favorite, however most of the foundations are packaged in a simple bottle with just a lid which is always a hassle to use but this foundation is a savior. It comes in a transparent glass bottle with a pump. It doesnt however come with a lid but you can close it after use by twisting it clockwise, nice huh? It makes it travel friendly. 

Now lets talk about the color selection. Well there arent many to choose from. You are lucky if you find your exact match. The shade that I have is a tad bit lighter than I would prefer but I make it work after contouring, but it isnt ideal I would admit. 

Regarding the texture and pigmentation I would say I am really impressed while the coverage is medium it is definitely buildable to full ,  a little bit of foundation goes a long way, and blends like a dream( pun intended). Its thicker than an average liquid foundation and has a mousse kind of texture to it though its not heavy looking or feeling on the face, just dont over use it as it provides excellent coverage, build up the amount as required.It really blends into the skin and provides a flawless finish, but remember to moisturize your face first. 

Another thing to note is that this foundation does not have any SPF. which is a plus and minus both, because for any night time event or outing you can always skip the spf and photograph well, SPF foundations give a white cast to the photos . Where as for daytime use you need to add the extra step, if however you have oily skin just do the spf skip the moisturizer. 

Phew…that is too much talk….

The staying power on this foundation is pretty good, the maximum I have had it on is for 6-7 hours and it did a good job, I have dry skin no I did not have any issues, it might not be the same for people with oily skin ,so a mattifying powder might be required for setting the foundation and for touch ups.

Overall I am happy with this foundation and would recommend it as a nice budget buy.  It gives beautiful coverage with a dewy to matte finish and its lightweight and doesnt feel heavy on the face.
