Product Review: Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Foundation

With my ageing skin, I am starting to see the benefits of foundations targeted specifically for ageing skin, so I was excited when I was asked to trial the *Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Foundation, here are my thoughts;


What They Say:
"Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Foundation promises to instantly create a smooth, even complexion, minimise the look of fine lines and improve sagging and loss of elasticity. It is formulated to provide smooth and consistent coverage that corrects imperfections. Available in 8 shades."

RRP: $25.95 (30ml) – Available from Selected pharmacies, department stores, variety stores and supermarkets nationwide.

What I Say:
Who doesn’t love a good multi-tasking product. Well, the new Instant Age Rewind The Lifter Foundation from Maybelline New York ticks all boxes, containing both micronutrients and peptites to help infuse, hydrate and firm the skin as well as a an in-built smoothing primer. Sounds good to me!

The foundation comes in a clear pump bottle and you can clearly see the two different components in the foundation, the clear serum, and the foundation. Once you pump it out the bottle, the foundation, which has an airy and whipped consistency, has a slightly strange look, almost as if the foundation off and has separated. But once applied to the skin, it mixes well.


And the foundation is so easy to apply, absorbing into the skin quickly, giving it a nice even finish. It only provides a light coverage, which can be built up to a medium coverage. Unfortunately it still doesn’t cover any major pigmentation, scarring or redness, for that I need to use a concealer as well.


The foundation is very lovely to wear, and I can feel that it is very moisturising on my skin, yet without being too greasy or shiny on my combination skin. And because it is so moisturising, it also appears to minimise the look of fine lines, and consequently make my skin look younger. It simple leaves my skin looking glowing and smooth.


It has a nice long wear, using a primer first, it stays put until late in the afternoon, and I love that it doesn’t settle into fine lines. I also love knowing that it is treating my skin with the anti-ageing serum while covering imperfections.

What I Like:
  • That it is a treatment foundation, caring for your skin while covering imperfections
  • Easy to blend and leaves the skin soft and glowing
  • Has a long wear and doesn’t settle into fine lines
  • Great price

What I Don’t Like:
  • Unfortunately it doesn’t contain any SPF, which is necessary under the harsh Australian sun

Overall, it is a fantastic foundation, and I really like the inclusion of the serum that cares for mature skin. It may only give a light coverage, but it leaves the skin feeling soft and glowing, so if you have mature skin like me, I highly recommend you try it!
