Purchase Regret- Maybelline Instant Age Rewind FOUNDATION

As I live in the UK, I actually can't get this foundation! But as I was going to NYC, I thought i'd make the most of my opportunity and give it a go. I have tried the concealer version of this product and I absolutely loved it- I just want to point out that I am in no way trying to shame the brand because I love Maybelline products in general but with all brands, there is always some products you may dislike. I thought I would give this foundation a go because I love the coverage of the concealer version and I loved the shade range for my skin-tone.

I got mine in the shade Buff- Beige which was actually one of the lightest shades but was still a little too dark. I thought I'd be able to work with the shade and just make sure I blend it round my neck but this was definitely not the case! The colour of this looked ridiculously red on my face and made me look so stupid- I literally had to take the foundation off and apply a different one. All of the shades didn't seem to have a yellow under-tone to it so I didn't really have a choice with it. The applicator seems to soak up too much of the product and doesn't apply it nicely onto the face, so if you do actually like this foundation, I would maybe recommend taking the lid off. As far as the formula goes, I think it is difficult to blend out as it dries quickly and you have to work very quick. I also finds that it goes patchy on my skin and doesn't give amazing coverage.

Overall, I really wouldn't recommend this product but if you want to give it a go, maybe you will like it? As I said, I am in no way shaming Maybelline as I love other products by them but this product is definitely not for me! Let me know if you have tried this product and your thoughts?
