When recently asked about my skincare routine, I noticed myself rattling off a laundry list of products that’d make any Sephora associate proud. When said routine was called “complicated”, I admitted it: My name is Shaunequa and I’m addicted to skin care. Look, it could be worse; I mean, have you seen “Intervention”?
In contrast to my skin care routine, my makeup needs are minimal. I do not conceal, bronze, or line anything consistently. So when I find a product that offers light coverage for a more flawless finish, I’m all over it.
I first saw Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam at Mercedez Benz Fashion Week. I was impressed by its frothy appeal, color saturation, and super-easy application. So I actually *gasp* bought it because they didn’t have a tester in a brown shade (c’mon, Maybelline).
1) If you’re looking for medium-to-full coverage, this is not the product for you. If you, like me, are of the tinted-moisturizer persuasion, give it a go.
2) This foam almost instantly “melts” when it makes contact with hands. My suggestion? Spray foam into the cap and apply it with a sponge or your fingers.
P.S. As of right now, there’s only one viable brown-girl hue, Cocoa. I repeat: c’mon, Maybelline.
