I will be honest, drugstore foundations are not my thing. The process for finding an exact match is at times exhausting; the lack of testers, the inability to obtain samples, it just makes me steer clear of drugstore foundations.
But the Maybelline Matte + Poreless foundation seems to get people excited, so I trudged along to my local drugstore to purchase it. There was no one match (another issue I have) and I purchased the 330 Toffee Caramel and 355 Coconut to mix the two. I like the matte finish of the foundation and it photographs beautifully. I prefer to apply it with a beauty blender which always gives an airbrush finish. I wish it would last a little longer; if I know I’ll be gone all day, I don’t think I would reach for this foundation.
This is perfect for the summer! I have extremely oily skin which gets ten times worst in my humid, muggy city. And let’s be real, dewy and oily are two very different things. If you haven’t tried this foundation yet, I think you’d be happily surprised with this drugstore gem.
The top swatch is 330 Toffee Caramel and the bottom swatch is 355 Coconut.
