It’s crap. Most drug store foundations are crap. That’s how they get away with the low price point. 

 

If you want a good liquid foundation try Urban Decays naked skin. They have a massive range of shades. It has an almost watery consistancy so it goes on easily, and stays on.

@maloussii:  This is what I use. I love it! It matches my skin tone perfectly and it’s very light.

@maloussii:  Do you need a lot of coverage?  I wear Maybelline’s BB cream and find it’s just enough coverage with some concealer in spots I need more, topped off with bronzer and a finishing powder.  I use step 3 from proactiv and then a primer on top of that – those both go underneath the BB cream.  It blends really well because it’s like a tinted moisturizer, but with more color/coverage.

@maloussii:  I didn’t like the garnier one or the one from L’oreal.  I really only liked the Maybelline one and I found it at target for $7.  For foundation, I use MAC.  I only use it sometimes, when I go out.  BB cream is for every day.

@maloussii:  I didn’t think so. It was very light for me. I like it to be a little heavier.

@maloussii:  It matches yes, but if your skin is uneven if matches the uneven parts.  As others said it was really light coverage- tinted moisturizer light.  I only got it because I rarely use foundation and wanted a color to last in all seasons.  I haven’t used it in months.  I haven’t used it but Revlon Colorstay is suppose to be pretty good.
