Yummy411: Maybelline Fits the Dark and Lovely

I went with my friend Peaches*, a new makeup fiend, out to Bed Bath & Beyond for the best in drugstore beauty, my favorite place for cheaper drugstore brands besides Walmart. She was in search of sunblock (yes everyone of all skin tones NEEDS to wear SPF!), but I found one better for her! A drugstore foundation in her skin tone with SPF 18! Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind in Cocoa (Dark 3)

Peaches was thrilled (as was I) that out of the vast selection of limited shades (they don't even have the Queen collection of CoverGirl), Maybelline was able to get the job done.

Here's what Maybelline says:
Why You'll Love It
Rewind the years with this age-minimizing liquid foundation that leaves skin firmer, more radiant.
Caffeine makes it new
Skin looks firmer immediately
Micro-pearls illuminate skin for a more radiant, brighter, younger look
Contains SPF 18 Sunscreen to help protect skin from sun damage
View all Instant Age Rewind products
For Best Results
Shake well. Apply smoothly and evenly to your face and blend with your fingertips.

My tips for Peaches: "Take a sponge and blend out the foundation after application. Apply sheer translucent powder to set."

Thanks Peaches! Good times! We'll do it again.

*Peaches is my nickname for her. Ask her how she's doing and she'll tell you, "Just peachy!" LOL

Age rewind is a great foundation for fall! I have tried it before and it works wonderfully well! I love the small shimmery particles in it...they reflect light in a way that gives you a natural glow! Peaches looks very pretty!!

Peaches looks great in the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind. It gives her a natural glow. The fact that she has fabulous skin doesn't hurt at all either :-)
