Maybelline age rewind foundation

Im only 13 (almost 14) but I've heard amazing reviews about this makeup onyoutube and on makeup alley. If you have this does it work well? I have oily skin but also lots of redness around my nose near my eyes and I heard it's buildable. I normally use hard Candy just face it but I'm looking for something new. Thanks!

Kisses :)

How to read ingredients in a cosmetic product 101:
I know you might not read this, but it's probably good to do so, since you can be buying smart in the future.

Maybelline Age Rewind Foundation Ingredients (thanks google also you don't have to read these, I explain what some of the main ones do if you scroll down):

Active Ingredient: Octinoxate 7.5%. Inactive Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Water, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Glycerin, Isotridecyl Isononanoate, PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/Pvp Crosspolymer, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract, Acrylates Copolymer, Potassium Sorbate, Ethylparaben, Tocopherol Ascorbyl Palmitate, Panthenol, PEG-9, Aluminum Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Sodium PCA, Urea, Trehalose, Polyquaternium-51, Soluble Collagen, Sodium Hyaluronate. [+/=- May Contain: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Mica.]

The active ingredients list is the part of a cosmetic, drug, or pharmaceutical ingredient label that must adhere to specific FDA-mandated regulations. Active ingredients must be listed first on an ingredient label. The amount and exact function of each active ingredient is controlled and must be approved by the FDA. Active ingredients are considered to have a pharmacological altering effect on skin, and these effects must be documented by scientific evaluation and approved by the FDA. Active ingredients include such substances as sunscreen ingredients, skin-lightening agents, and benzoyl peroxide.
So it's advertised as anti-aging. It's active ingredient

I will tell you right now Octinoxate is a sunscreen and it only blocks UVB rays, Zinc Oxide blocks both UVA/UVB rays and titanium dioxide (which it does have) blocks both to a stronger degree as well, but only within a certain % amount or it's pointless. Which leads us to what Inactive ingredients are :

The list of inactive ingredients is the part of an ingredient label that is not regulated by the FDA other than the requirement that it be a complete list of the contents in descending order of concentration; that is, the ingredient with the largest concentration is listed first, then the next largest, and so forth. Thousands and thousands of inactive ingredients are used in cosmetics, and there is controversy about how truly inactive these substances are in regard to safety as well as about their long-term or short-term effects on skin or the human body.

So going back to the ingredient list we can say that the things in higher percentages, meaning more likely to impact your body in the inactive ingredients come in first:

Cyclopentasiloxane - It's great for covering up imperfections, but that's because it's heavy, it's made out of a Silicone fluid , it has been said to cause skin irriation, and works by forming a film over the skin so that it looks like your face is fuller when it's simply just smoothing it out but, when it does that it doesn't allow your skin to breath....(http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=144672/cyclopentasiloxane/0/Foundations)

Regardless what some people may say, SILICONES (dimethicone, methicone, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, etc) all can cause major breakouts. Silicones work as a humectant by putting a seal over the skin that can be likened to saran wrap, the skin cannot breathe and breakouts can occur. As you can see, this foundation is heavy in dimethicones , I read three, within the first couple of lines. Stay away if you're acne prone.

It has a paraben. Trying to sneak it in. And for it's anti-aging, it has collagen as near the bottom, meaning in one of the lowest percentages! Not only that it's SOLUBLE COLLAGEN! The second ingredient on the list is water, so that means, the collagen isn't doing anything, and I doubt it was nano-collagen particles anyway.

The point is, don't waste your money on this. I would suggest you find out ways to wear less makeup, focus more on skincare. You're only 13/14 afterall....besides, this may provide excellent coverage and make you look fuller, but it will not be the best if you have sensitive, acne prone skin, or redness at all.

Mineral Makeup is still the best imo, if anything. MAC is stage makeup practically >.
