REVIEW: MAYBELLINE CLEAR SMOOTH AQUA GEL-FOUNDATION



I have been wanting to try this product but, for some reason, i was unsure, so i kept debating myself for i dont know how long until one day i decided just to get it!

Bonjour Love!

I actually own two of this foundation and dont worry, they are in a different shade :) but the one i am trying is in the shade natural :)

so the packaging:
- somehow rather.. teenage-ish, well i am assuming the product is aiming for that teen target audience :)
- strong and durable plastic material
- you have to twist the silver cap to open it
- it is easy to squeeze and control the amount of foundation you want to use
- the tube has a tiny round/hole for the liquid foundation to come out which i love because not only i can control but also very hygienic.

I seriously forgot about the price.... :( 




here is the color swatch for "natural" shade.
The texture is somehow creamy and somehow liquid-y well hence the name "gel foundation", it blends in well into your skin, lightweight on the skin, no scent i can smell off, it dries off very fast which is a good thing :)



now the experiment:

5.30pm
me getting ready for dinner ;D


10pm
i just reached home :D

it has.. been almost 4 hours and a little bit more, my skin just getting oily :D


conclusion:
- love this foundation because it is lightweight, absorb quickly into the skin, dries fast, it isnt super creamy that can make my face super oily within 1-2 hours, as for oil control, a good four hours is super enough for me :) so for my skin i will say this has a medium oil control :) but the downside is, because it is lightweight, it has a poor-medium coverage on my acne :( and of course not im not fond of the jar.
