As many of you who follow me on Twitter may know, I have been on the hunt! I have been on the hunt for the perfect (or semi-perfect) drugstore foundation. Drugstore foundation shades always seemed to be a bit off to me in high school so for the past five years, I have toggled between MAC, Clinique and Make Up For Ever foundations. (Note: Make Up For Ever is my favorite...hands down!) Well, to be quite honest, neither of the brands I mentioned are exactly "budget-friendly." Since I wear foundation most days, I decided to hunt for something a bit less expensive.
It just so happened that as I began my hunt, I read The Glamorous Gleam's most recent blog highlighting the new Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation. Since I know she has skin similar to mine, I figured it would be worth a shot. (Note: The $2 coupon I had helped too!)

|Shade 310 - Honey Beige|
- Affordable (Price Range: $8-$11)
- Easy to Blend
- Easy Application (Can use fingers)
- Limited Color Selection
- Not for Extended Wear or Oily Skin
I can honestly say that I do not regret this purchase. I love how blendable and easy to apply this foundation is. You can apply it with your fingers if you want; however, I used a stipple brush. Also, the color goes wonderful with my skin. My only gripe is that this is NOT best for people who either have oily skin or a work/school day beyond eight hours. By the time I got off work around 4:30 p.m., most of the makeup was gone from my chin and nose. Mind you, I applied a primer and used an oil-control setting spray. Yikes!
Would I Purchase Again?
Believe it or not, I would. Even though I have super long days the majority of the time, my extended days aren't everyday. This would be perfect for a Sunday where I am going to church or any short period of time.
What do you think? Had you heard of the Nude Airfoam Foundation?
Thanks for reading & God bless!
