Influenster has challenged me to use Maybelline’s new Better Skin Skin Transforming Foundation for three weeks in exchange for the complimentary full size sample! Here are my first weeks impressions of using this product from 7/29/2015 through 8/6/2015.
I am so glad this product has a pump! The actual shape of the glass container fits easily in my hand. It’s not bulky and I can feel in control and precise with it.
The consistency is thicker than most foundations I’ve used. I liked that.
There wasn’t a strong scent. Good or bad. Neutral and clean.
Coverage – My naked barely awake face. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! lol
You can tell there is a redness on the apples of my cheeks, around my nose, along with those pesky dark circles I can never get away from no matter how much I try.
I applied the foundation with a synthetic brush, no primer, no concealer, just about two full pumps worth of the foundation. Here are my results.
I am pretty happy with the results! You can see that my reddness has gone down and is almost completely covered by just the foundation alone. The color (10 Ivory) is a near perfect match for my skin tone in this lighting. You can tell against my neck that my natural skin tone is flushed redder, but overall I love the clean look of just the foundation on my skin.
After this initial week my first impressions are still the same. I enjoy the coverage of the foundation and it’s longevity (9+ hours). I have seen a decrease in redness on my cheeks, but my nose area remains red. Thanks hormones.
So now that I’ve scared you with my sleepy before and after application photos. Let me share with you a “complete” photo with all off my regular makeup applied (and the Maybelline Better Skin foundation)
Thank you Influenster for selecting me to be a part of the #betterskinchallenge. I’m enjoying testing out this product, thanks your generosity, and hope to share more positive reviews with you in the coming weeks!
