Maybelline Age Rewind Foundation Review

This product I bought completely by accident, I really didn’t mean to buy it and I know that sounds silly but I really did. I had been watching Carli Bybel videos and she had used the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, and I went into Boots wanting to buy it and accidentally bought the foundation instead.
And Christ was I disappointed.

I applied it just like Carli did in her video and I thought there was something wrong but I didn’t twig on straight away so I carried on with it. Not noticing that it was like twice the size of the one she had in the video. When I realised my mistake I thought I would still use the product to get my money’s worth out of it.

You just simply twist some product up and it soaks through the sponge that is on top. Then I like to apply it by just putting some dabs of it all over my face. The I will take any buffing brush, my favourite for this foundation is the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

I find when the product is applied like this it does look really nice on the skin. It gives a sheer to medium finish and the product is lightweight and easy to blend and buff into the skin.

However, when I apply this foundation it feels really greasy on the skin, even when it has just come off the applicator before I even start to blend it in it feels super oily. Once it is buffed in I set it with powder as I always do which does mattify it to a certain degree. But throughout the day I do notice that I get oilier than I do normally with other foundations.

Also this foundation isn’t great if you suffer from breakouts. Because there is no other way than to apply it straight onto the face due to the foam top. Which means that the sponge on the end can soak bacteria of the face and spread it around.

I feel really bad, but can you tell that I didn’t really like this product?

There are somethings I do like about this foundation but I really cannot see myself ever repurchasing it. If I was going to go for a drug store foundation with a similar kind of coverage and consistency I would go for the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.

Please feel free to leave me any comments, I would love to hear from you. If you have any reviews, you want to see please do not hesitate to ask. I would be more than happy to do it!

  2. I heard hreat things about the concealer, there was a time when everyone was using it and had great reviews. Too bad this one is not for oily skin, I avoid bases with oily texture.


    1. Me too!
      For somebody with a dry skin type, I bet this foundation would be a dream!
