Maybelline The Lifter Foundation

Summer is all about simplifying your beauty routine, especially on those scorching hot days. If BB creams or tinted moisturizers don't offer enough coverage for your preferences, then a lightweight foundation is your best bet. I've been wearing Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Foundation* quite a bit recently, and I thought I'd share my thoughts on it with you!

This foundation is unique because the formula actually includes a primer. There's one step that you can leave out of your morning routine! This foundation pumps out what seems like a mousse, but it is actually just a thicker cream. I have the lightest shade in the line, 120 Creamy Ivory. This shade does blend in nicely to my pale skin tone, but I don't think that this foundation line will cater to anyone with porcelain skin tones.

I use a Sigma F80 to blend in this liquid foundation. I have experimented with blending in this foundation with my fingers, but I think that a brush gives a more flawless finish. I use about a pump and a half of Maybelline's The Lifter Foundation to cover my entire face. This formula gives a nice medium coverage with a lightweight feel. The primer inside the formula does add to the lasting power, and I can go a full 8 hours before I see any signs of fading. I do like to set this foundation with a setting powder, which also helps to mattify. This foundation gives a slightly dewy finish, which I find really pretty. 

Have you tried Maybelline's The Lifter Foundation? I love the idea of a primer inside my foundation, as one less step in the morning is always welcomed! What is your current go-to foundation? :)
