    my favorite drugstore foundation

    I really like this foundation because it goes on smooth and it has light-medium buildable coverage. It doesn't feel like i'm wearing a mask, which is really nice as I hate thick liquid foundations. Powdery foundations make me look chalky, so this is a nice balance. It lasts a lot longer if you use primer and set it with powder, but overall it's a great foundation for cheap. be sure to moisturiz...read moree, though, because it can accentuate the look of dry skin a bit. I would definitely recommend this, although it is true that there isn't a great shade range, and luckily I match one of the shades. Also, the packaging is wonderful because it NEVER dries out. It comes out rather fast but when i get too much i just wipe it on the rim, screw the cap back on, and its still good the next time i use it!! No wasted product! Please, Maybelline, never discontinue this it is a staple for me. — 2 years, 8 months ago

    Does its job, but at a price

    It covers well. I used to wear this when I was going out to an event and wanted my makeup to last all night and be camera ready. However, I'd have to hide inside for a week afterwards due to the fact that my skin broke out horrendously from this product. I threw it away and never looked back. — 3 years, 1 month ago

    Decent Foundation, Cheap Price

    For being a relatively cheap foundation, this is a decent product. It's lightweight, has 15spf. I think it blends well. It doesn't feel heavy and doesn't cake. Coverage is pretty good for such a lightweight formula. Major blemishes would require a concealer though. Some people said it got oily, which I haven't noticed, but I also work inside. I would buy it again, which is saying a lot because I am a department store foundation kind of woman! — 3 years, 3 months ago

    My Go-To Foundation!

    I will continue to use this as long as they are available to me (which, I'm afraid, may not be that much longer)! I have noticed most stores are no longer carrying these. Boo! Prior to using this I used a different Maybelline liquid foundation for years which was discontinued, leading me to find the above. I love Maybelline and since I had such a great relationship with my old foundation, I wanted...read more to try Maybelline again. I admit, when I was searching I didn't know which product to go with. Foundations by Maybelline now seem to be all anti-age and what-not. I saw the Natural Perfecting Mineral Power foundation and compared the package size to my old product and made sure it had SPF, etc. etc. The price wasn't bad (under $10) so I figured I would give it a try and picked up the pressed powder to use as a setting powder and went home. Packing: The first thing I noticed was the tip. It's not an open-mouth foundation like most other drugstore foundations. Rather, it has a squeeze tip. This is absolutely fabulous for controlling the amount of product you want! It is also nice in keeping the opening clean and not having wasted product all over the place and in the cap (as I previously experienced). The product itself comes in 1 fl. oz. packaging, similar to most other foundations both drugstore and high-end alike. I am on my second bottle and I would say, considering how often I wear makeup, the first bottle lasted quite a long time! I, unfortunately, can't give you an exact time-frame as I didn't make note of my purchase. I wasn't expecting to review it at the time I bought it. Performance: For application I use my fingers. I have never used a brush to apply liquid foundation. I used a makeup sponge with my old foundation but that was because the formula was thicker. The Maybelline Natural Perfecting Foundation is a bit more liquid-y. I wouldn't say it's as runny as MAC Face & Body but it isn't as thick as some others. I actually quite like the consistency. It makes application and blending a dream! I have a lot of facial redness and I need a foundation that can even out my skin tone without looking thick and cakey. This product delivers for me! I apply product from the middle of my index finger (I have tiny hands, haha) towards the tip. I then dab the product on each of my cheeks, my nose, my chin and across my forehead. Then, I blend. This foundation glides across the skin with ease and never leaves streaky lines. I have an odd quirk where I go around my jawline with a tissue to make sure there aren't lines. This is due to my old foundation which would sometimes make me look like I was wearing a mask no matter how well I tried to blend. I did this for so long now it's second nature and just something I prefer to do. It gives enough coverage to even my skin tone and yet, look as if I'm still bare-faced. I love that I still look like me! "Natural Perfecting" indeed! If you are someone who needs heavy coverage, this product is not for you. I recommend this product to people who want "natural" coverage. It's more than a tinted moisturizer but probably coming in just under "full-coverage". My old foundation was a bit more full-coverage than these. This product does not break me out. I believe the minerals in it helps to prevent clogging of pores, etc. All in all, I love this product! But, when I run out, I will be trying something new. Mostly because, yet again, my foundation is being discontinued (or so it seems). The other reason being, I just want to try something new! — 4 years ago

    Im very disappointed with this product. First of all I bought the wrong color but its was still wearable because it was not so different from my skin tone. I have combination oily skin and after 1 hour wearing this foudantion my skin became oily than it already is!! and this product also has a kind of glow but in my case the glow made my skin looks even more oily. I find it pitty because I had bi...read moreg expectations and i can even say other problems, it stays on my clothes,in napkins when i used around the mouth etc. Really not good product. — 4 years, 10 months ago
