Jolie in Illinois wrote me recently and asked please could I review the new Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup.
Well Jolie that’s not a great chore as I was liking the looks of it anyway!
Jump for the word.
I’m currently having a love/hate relationship with Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup myself. This is saying something as I have a deep dislike for drugstore foundation. On the note of aging…not sure I really need an age rewind foundation but hey you can never start to early right?
The foundation comes housed in a chubby little bottle with a soft, fuzzy little ball applicator on top. You simply twist and click to get the foundation flowing into the applicator and away you go! I’m a hands on kinda girl and I normally use my fingers to blend out foundation but I generally liked using this applicator for application. It really does kinda work like a little eraser, whisking away dullness and brightening up the skin as it goes. I dunno about fine lines but maybe it’ll whisk those away too! On a note of the applicator, germs, and bacteria…from what I understand it’s been treated so you can simply wipe with a tissue after you’re done and have nary a worry about bacteria growing on it.
I really like the way this makes my skin look. Flawless, bright, dewy…..quite pretty really! However, I hate the formula. It feels greasy and weird. It slips and slides around my face as I apply and leaves behind an oily film. It almost feels as if the foundation has a built in primer of some sort. Now that’s actually the good news as those with larger pores may find that this fills pores as it covers…but me…I just felt it was terribly greasy and gross feeling. Coverage is about medium I’d say but you may be able to go heavier with proper build up.
Overall, I could probably lean towards loving this if it wasn’t for the strange oily formula, that was a total deal breaker for me. You might wanna try it out in store as they have testers available but I don’t think you can get a proper feel for it unless you have a face full of it on. Larger pores, drier skin will maybe find it’s a great one. No pores, oily skin may not like it.
Ok, but needs serious work on the formula.
Do tell me how you feel about Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup.
