Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation review

Happy Thanksgiving in advance, everyone :] I'll be going on a four hour drive to Alabama to see my hubby's grandparents. There will definitely be some good country cooking! I'm not much of a turkey eater, but I know I will still enjoy whatever they cook. Anyway... to the review!

I purchase this a couple of weeks back, and have been using it almost everyday. I've never been a big fan of liquid foundations because I usually break out using it [I've always used mineral foundation]. However, I do like this Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation [wow what a long name...!]

Here's a quick overview/claims from -

"Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation with 100% micro-mineral pigments not only provides perfect coverage and all-day hydration, but also makes your skin clearer, smoother and more radiant - even when you’re not wearing any."

Retail Price: $8.99

My thoughts: This liquid foundation has a little opening on the top, almost like a baby bottle. You shake it well, and squeeze product out. I use clean fingers to dot the foundation around my face, and blend it in a circular motion. This foundation is liquidy. It's also really easy to apply, and goes on smoothly on my face. It has a light to medium coverage, and it's something that you can build [apply product in layers if you need more coverage]. I can't feel it when it's on my face, very lightweight. Having oily/combination skin, this product doesn't work too well for me. I start to get oily after 4 or 5 hours, and will have to blot. It does keep my face hydrated over 8 hours though, and doesn't cake up. It also makes my face feel radiant, and evens out my skin tone [my chin and mouth area is darker than the rest of my face]. I definitely recommend it to someone who has dry to normal skin who does not need a full coverage foundation.

Would I buy this again? Probably not, because I need something that will keep my face matte. If I didn't have an oily/combination face, I would definitely buy it again :]

With the foundation

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts on it? Have a lovely day :]


  1. I haven't tried this product, but great review ! ^_^ Maybe it will work for me since I have dry skin? Hmm...

  2. I almost bought this yesterday, I will have to go back! :-)

  3. I haven't tried it. I always used MAC's fluid foundation until I discovered Revlon's Colorstay and since it works just as well (and is more than half the price) I'll be sticking with Revlon I think : )

  4. Thanks for the review. Good to know, because I've seen this product before and was thinking of purchasing it. I think I will not^^

  5. I haven't tried this b/c the packaging ^^ but thanks for this great review - now I know I needn't bother since I am very oily :P

  6. i haven't tried this. but i do use liquid foundation - i have revlon and covergirl. happy thanksgiving! :D
