Good range of shades for pale and dark skin tones

There are 24 shades available, ranging from pale porcelain to deep java tones. It’s nowhere as extensive as Fenty’s shades, but hey, it also costs a fraction of what Fenty is charging.

There are enough warm and neutral shades to suit most skin tones, including medium and deep tones.

Longevity is not its forte, but a bit of prep will help

Unfortunately, it won’t last a full sweaty 12-hour day without some help. If you plan to wear this during a strenuous workout session or commute, a thin dusting of powder and occasional touch ups will help you look flawless all day.

Affordable and available everywhere

Maybelline products are available pretty much everywhere from supermarkets to Amazon.

And who needs to spend $40 on foundation when this stuff is cheaper than a bag of chips?!
