Maybelline Better Skin Foundation
Lately I have been a sucker for new releases. One of those being the newly released Maybelline Better Skin Foundation, it caught my eye as it claims to do the following things;
 - Our foundation improves the look of your skin every time you wear it. Skin looks better today, tomorrow and beyond.
 - Better Skin reduces the appearance of dull, blotchy and uneven skin, leaving you with flawless, hydrated, even and glowing skin.
- It evens out discoloration and brightens dull areas, providing a healthy looking glow from day to night.
- The formula is suitable for sensitive skin, contains no perfume, and is non-comedogenic. It is tested under dermatological control.
Of course, if something is claiming to give me amazing looking skin then I will jump to the chance straight away of trying it out.

One of the things that bugs me about Maybelline is there colour range for all there face products. I picked up the shade '020/04Cameo' which does look really light but if you happen to see the spectrum of shades over on the maybelline website (here) you will see that it is one of the middle shades. I found that any shades darker than this one was far too dark for my skin and the ones before it are really light. Hence, this one being the best one to go with! Once blended it well however, it does look okay and then as you add concealer and so forth it looks fine. 
+ I will admit that my skin does look a lot better when wearing this foundation, I applied 2 think layers as one wasn't doing anything for me. 
+ I used the foundation without any primer underneath to see how it worked, even though it applied to my face easy and blended well - i think that I may need to use a different primer with it and not my Nivea one to see how it compares. 
+ I LOVE IT because of the finish, it is very natural looking and mattifying. It is also very hydrating
-  But it snugs at my dry skin around the nose and forehead. 
+ Having SPF is always a benefit.
- Even though it claims to help with sensitive skin, I don't think my skin likes it! I seem to have broken out recently and whether it is down to this foundation I have no idea, but I think I may need to use it once more when my skin is getting better and then I can really see!

Having never tried a liquid foundation from Maybelline I am very impressed! If you want something quick and easier for everyday then at £8.99 you can't go wrong. However, if you have dry skin like me then I wouldn't recommend it! I have a feeling that it would be great to use in the summer time!
