Maybelline Better Skin Foundation

I recently received the Maybelline #BETTERSKINCHALLENGE VOXbox from Influenster. First things first, I would never let a free foundation sway my opinion....but so far I am loving this.

The concept is to try this foundation out for three weeks straight and see if your skin improves. Now, I haven't changed a thing in my routine except replacing my old [HG] foundation (Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse). The two are hard to compare. Rimmel's is thicker, fuller coverage, and made to "stay matte" all day. Maybelline's is supposed to look more natural and improve your skin over time. Personally, I think there's a time and a place for both in everyone's drawer.

I'm super picky when it comes to foundation because I have sensitive skin and I work long hours so I need that stuff to stay put.

I'm writing this on the 2nd week and 5th day of the trial. I do believe my skin has slightly improved, but in ways only I would notice. What's most important is that this foundation definitely didn't damage my skin or break me out. (Yay!)

Here's me with no foundation (and a slight sunburn):

And here I am with Maybelline Better Skin foundation:

While the coverage isn't as full as I'm used to, I started using this foundation every day instead of my HG. It feels so light and my skin has reacted well to it. It blends easily and the color match had just enough yellow tones to even out my redness. I'm so glad I got to try this foundation out and I will definitely repurchase. Eyeing up the concealer as I speak type.
