Okay, the name of this product is a mouthful!
Maybelline has a line of makeup that focuses on anti-aging which is called Instant Age Rewind. I've seen several YouTubers using this and rave about this so I decided to get one for myself. The most common talked about product about this line is the concealer. I wanted to try the concealer but I needed a foundation more than the concealer which is why I decided to get the foundation instead.
Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Face Makeup in
200 Creamy Natural
This range comes in 12 shades so you'll definitely find your match. According to Maybelline, here's why you'll love this foundation:
- Patented Micro-Corrector Applicator micro-fills and smoothes imperfections on skin's surface
- Super-concentrated formula with Goji berry and collagen reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- SPF 18 sunscreen helps protect skin from sun damage
- Clinically proven effectiveness.
- * 7 years of research, 5 patents, doesn’t just cover; after 8 weeks of use reduces imperfections without makeup on.
Here's the swatch of the foundation at the back of my palm.
Notice how some of my freckles were covered without changing the shade of my skin.
It comes with an applicator which is called Micro-Corrector Applicator. You twist the bottom until you start to see the foundation seeping out of the applicator. That's your hint. You just have to twist slowly, carefully, and more importantly, twist patiently as a lot of product might come seep through if you twist too fast. Once you see the foundation, you can start applying it on your face. No need for a foundation brush that's why this product is totally handy!
Here's a photo of me barefaced. Just applied Hayan face moisturiser.
Here's a photo of me after applying the foundation. No setting powder yet. Just filled in my brows.
I don't know if it's just me but this gives a feel of a cream-to-powder finish. Creamy Natural is a tad dark on my skin (I'm the only one that notices it though) but when set with powder, it falls into place.
I like using this even though it 90 degrees Fahrenheit here in Manila because it doesn't feel sticky on my face even in the afternoon. It has a semi-matte finish that last up to 4 hours on me (staying in an air-conditioned room). When I feel that my nose struts to oil up, it's either I use a blotting paper or retouch my makeup with a setting powder.
I haven't used this for 8 straight weeks as I alternate this with another water based foundation. Therefore, I can't really tell whether it reduced fine lines and wrinkles on my face (Do I even have any? LOL). This gives me a flawless face though every time I use it particularly on my eye bags and my ginormous pores. It doesn't settle so much on lines of my eye bags. There are days when I am having a hard time blending the foundation on the skin cos of its applicator. I use a flat top brush instead to buff it around my face for a more flawless look!
I purchased this product at an online shop and apologies as I forgot which online shop! If I remember correctly, I purchased this for 300-400? I can't wait for this line to be available at our local counters! This is definitely a hit on my list!
If you've tried this or the concealer, let me know! I'd love to know what you think about it.
