This foundation definitely makes a difference in the pores across my cheeks but it doesn't do anything for the ones on my nose. If anything it emphasises them. I was very impressed with its lasting power and the fact that it didn't break up anywhere. With it being matte/natural finish it takes a while for my natural oils to come through but sometimes I feel like its too matte and it clings onto any slight dry patches. But my absolute favourite thing about this product is that it doesn't oxidise. I have struggled for years to find a drugstore foundation that doesn't do this.
Considering the hype around this product I'm a little disappointed. I expected more - now it's not bad at all. It does exactly what it says on the bottle but that wasn't enough to wow me. For £6.99 I think its an excellent budget option and a good foundation for those just starting in makeup. I think it's real worth lies in mixing it with other foundations to change the finish and colour.
What do you think of the Maybeline Matte & Poreless foundation?
