The weather is finally getting warmer which means time for NEW makeup and lots of decluttering from the previous year. All of the foundations I own are full coverage and I decided to start adding some light, sheer, and medium coverage ones for those light and quick days. Not to mention I am a mother, so it is mandatory to have a foundation for on the go applications.
Cushion foundations are a Korean beauty trend that reached the Western world in 2015. Laneige, a Korean brand, released some of there products in Sephora and many companies took a hint from them. Cushion foundations make for easy and quick application and a natural finish. Loreal was the first drugstore brand to get in on this and now Maybelline has joined the bandwagon.
I have been a fan of Maybelline since high school so it only made sense to pick this beauty up. I also know the shade Caramel always matches me. So it wouldn't be super difficult to figure out a match. The consistency of this foundation is thin but it has a light to medium coverage. It feels so light on the skin and leaves a dewy natural finish. If you have oily skin like me you will definitely have to use a primer and setting powder. I never leave the house without using either of these products.
I have used both a beauty sponge and foundation brush with this product. It looks amazing with both, giving me fresh looking skin in an instant. I guess my only issue would be there is only 1 shade after Caramel. So not all my black sister can enjoy this foundation. But it is a drugstore foundation so we aren't surprised anymore.
I recorded a first impressions video, including some other drugstore spring goodies, and it should be up on my channel within the next few days. So look out for it.
