Maybe it's Maybelline - Maybelline Affinitone Mineral foundation review

Last week i bought the Maybelline Affinitone Mineral foundation and have been testing it out ever since. At first i purchased the wrong shade (21 "Nude") and ended up hating the product. It was way too yellowish for my skin tone. I went looking for a light powder and ended up in a cosmetics store, where a nice lady helped me out and made me purchase the right tone for me- 30 "Sand". 

The foundation has a very light texture, it has a natural velvety finish and evens out the complexion nicely. It contains micro mineral pigments and light reflecting particles that help smooth out your skin and leave you with a complexion. It also claims that it's:

  • talc free
  • fragrance free
  • perfect for sensitive skin
  • it has SPF 18
  • it has 100% micro-mineral pigments
  • oil free

In reality it does leave a nice velvety finish. It's very light and easy to use thanks to the pump! It does leave my skin looking healthy and nice. It has  light to medium coverage. When i don't set it with powder the staying power is between 5/6 hours. Even at the end of the day my skin still feels smooth and looks nice! I don't use a face primer. I just put my moisturizing day creme or use my grape seed oil. I actually noticed that when i use the oil i end up with a more natural dewy look. 

The things i love about this product is that it's talc free, it has SPF, it is super cheap and has a pump so it's easy to use! Don't get me wrong i still love my Rimmel Matte Foundation and Revlon's Color stay, but for now i plan to enjoy the Affinitone Mineral, since this is the first foundation from Maybelline i actually like!

You can clearly see the difference between both colors. The funny thing is they are the same products but come in slightly different packages.

You can see how light and dewy it looks. Lovees it! :) (once it's blended it looks exactly like my skin!)

Hope my review was helpful.

What is your newly favourite foundation? 

Love to read in the comments!

Stay fabulous

Hi Vendella :) How have you been?!
Great review and swatch by the way. And yes, it is strange that even though they are the same product they come in slightly different packaging.

I have this foundation in 21 nude and, sadly, my experience with it is totally different :/ I have normal skin and this foundation makes it really oily and makes big ugly spots all over the face after few hours. I'm so sad because at start it looks like a perfect product and at the end it turns up different :(
