Maybelline Urban Cover Foundation – Review / Trial

Recently when I was in Hawaii I picked up this beauty at a local CVS drugstore (love that place!) as it is not yet available in Australia; I was so excited to be able to get it before the release here in Aus.

As soon as I started seeing the YouTube world reviewing this product, I knew I wanted to try it myself, being from Australia – A foundation with SPF 40? Unheard of, and I also wanted to test the flashback as it does contain sunscreen.

So let’s jump in and learn about the product and then the real fun, the review 🙂

Product Review and Trial

Holey moley this product is beautiful!

I’m always on a hunt for a new drug store foundation to have in my collection as they are cheap, easy to replace and generally run in the same shade range as each other so easy to purchase.

So I was obviously devastated when I seen that this new product came out, which was getting such amazing reviews BUT wasn’t available in Australia for months.
So I lost my marbles when I realised I could get it in Hawaii during our trip this September 😀

I am in love with this foundation; it blurs my pores, smooths my lines and the coverage is ridiculous! It leaves my skin looking so glowy and beautiful, I don’t set it with any powders, other than bronzer and it just glows!

Enough talking, let’s see the picture proof!
