{Test This} Mai Couture Papier Foundation


Mai Couture Makeup’s new Foundation Powder Papier (retail value: $24) comes in a pocket-sized booklet with 50 one-time-use sheets–ideal for makeup application and touch ups while you’re on the go. The powder paper comes in three shades: fair glow, golden glow and nude glow. You don’t need a makeup brush, which, according to Mai Couture, “often carries bacteria that can irritate sensitive skin.” Instead, tear off a sheet, sweep it over your face and buff and smooth out the powder to finish.

The mineral-based powder is also paraben and talc free. “It softens the appearance of imperfections, evens out skin tone and controls oil without the mess.” Sounds good on paper…but what do you think FOFs?

10 FOFs will test it. Click here to find out more about Mai Couture Foundation Powder Papier, and then leave a comment below for a chance to test it.

  • yyoerger

    I usually carry a translucent powder compact in my purse for touch-ups, but this would be so much more travel-friendly. The compact powder gets cracked, loose on other items in the bag, etc. It’s a great idea I would love to test.

  • cattaz1

    A product this easy working on the skin of a 60 plus year old woman? I would love to try this out as my skin is imperfect as most skin is unless it’s air brushed, and we regular people don’t have that luxury. If it works, I would be one of it’s best spokespeople!! This would be a blessing!!

  • Pamela

    Like drive thru make up..

  • Louise M.

    I can’t live without foundation, it helps even out my skin and gives me a healthy look. This would be great for travel and touchups.

  • Andy

    How VERY interesting. Sounds like a real thing of the future! I’m always interested in “investing” in mine!

  • Diane Mary

    That sounds interesting! My compact in my purse usually spills open touching up the inside of my purse. This makeup almost sounds like an oil blotting sheet.
    Diane Mary

  • hoppupp

    I am always looking for a better makeup.

  • KathleenRileyDaniels (@RileyRants)

    I would love to try this! I can’t wear so much of the products out there because my skin is really sensitive. This might be right up my alley!

  • Carrie Womer

    I find it hard to believe that you can put foundation on a piece of paper and it will work well and provide full coverage.

  • Shans

    This sounds fast and easy. Just what I need.

  • Ann

    Looks great for a mid-day touch up! Would love to try it out!

  • akrew24

    Sounds too good to be true! I wonder if it offers full coverage for someone like me who has roseaca. I would love to try it and find out.

  • Gean

    My foundation seems to wear out over the course of the day at work and I would love to use something simple to apply and give me a finished look throughout the day till I get home. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to test your product.

  • faithmm

    This sounds like a unique product. It is something that I could use in my busy day!

  • Laura Bryant

    Sounds really interesting! As a teacher assigned to playground duties occasionally, this sounds like a great solution!

  • Katie

    I use powder mineral makeup. This seems like it would be handy. I would love to try it!

  • Leslie Bonner

    Would love to try it because, if it works, it would be fantastic for travel. The last time I traveled my foundation leaked. It was in a plastic bag so it didn’t touch my clothing but it was a mess and a newly purchased pricey foundation that was emptied by the time I reached my destination (top had been secured but it leaked out the pump).

  • WendyHighfill

    Hmmm, I am up for anything! I have rosacea, and it’s dry and sensitive, I wonder if this is really something for a long term, as it says it is only for touch up. How long does it last? How often do you have to re-apply it? I am intrigued, and would really love to try this product! I see that they also have bronze and blush sheets, too. Very interesting product, indeed!

  • kmariem18

    A new application – I am intrigued.

  • naruda58

    Great idea!

    Need something different.

  • Kathy11016

    Okay I would try it, Sounds interesting

  • Shirley Turner

    This sounds like a product that I would love to try. How many thimes have you been out and something has happened to your foundation? I has happened to me and I try to divert everyone from looking at that spot. I would live to try the golden glow.

  • Luanne Kleiman

    Interesting…always up for trying something new!

    Sounds ok for touchups, but I don’t know if it would be a good “first of day” application. Limited colours.

  • Clara

    It does sound too good to be true. Would love to test it

  • Kathrine Iacofano

    This would be perfect for the middle of the day touch up. And since I use powder foundation anyway, this would be ideal. That is, if it works……

  • Pat

    Would love to give it a try and let you know

  • ACeeKayWa

    This would be a great product – if it works! – for travel. One more way to reduce luggage and liquids. Love to check it out on my oily skin.

  • diana

    This sounds like a wonderful product. I would love to give it a try.

  • jankeyser

    Sounds like something I would enjoy trying out!

    heat and humidy causes my makeup to disappear…. this would be a lifesaver to cover up those blotches.

  • animalauthor

    Sounds intriguing!

  • Brenda Wahlig

    This sounds perfect for someone who is planning a trip abroad, as I am for later this year. Space is always at a premium anyway, and this eliminates some of the products that I usually take. I would love to test this and try it out!

  • Wild_Wahine

    Interesting concept. Sounds great for air travel and in flight touch ups. Would love to be a tester.

    How cool! Would love to try!

    This seems to be super convenient and I would love to see how it works. Thanks.

    Sounds great, I’d love to try it.

  • Theresa

    Since I put my makeup on at 5:00 in the morning, this would be great way to touch up at noon

    I live in Houston, Texas and routinely use blotting papers. This would be good product to test in the heat and humidity.

  • Janice

    Very clever idea and would love to test!

  • Diane

    This would take up little space in a purse and should not necessitate washing one’s hands after use. It could be the answer to a prayer. If it covers well and does not look like chalk, it may be just great. I’ll agree to try it if you will let me. Thanks…………………….!

  • Annette Grafmyer

    I am always searching for a great foundation that is easy to use and works well. It is hard to believe that a foundation could be applied from a papier. I would love to test this out. This is right up my alley!!

    would love to try, when i do wear makeup, it becomes a chore to apply foundation

    what a new and novel idea !! Leaving on a trip soon, and now it is such a hassle to take your make up on board a plane. This would be perfect !

  • Rhonda

    This product is exactly what I have been wishing for. I often need to touch up my makeup during the day, and it is difficult to carry around a bottle of foundation and a big brush in my purse. This product would be so convenient to carry around with me wherever I go. Thanks for creating it.

    It is so unusual and sounds so simple – I am all for it!

  • Debbie T

    A new idea! I would love to try it

  • Dody Nettles

    i would love to get to test this new foundation. Seems I have the hardest time matching my color, and this just sounds so simple and easy to carry in my purse for touch-ups during the day.

    As a woman of a certain age and most definitely Fab over Fifty, finding a foundation that leaves one’s skin looking smooth and without variations in color is great. Would love to give it a try.

  • Cathy

  • amarnel

    Would love to test this…I like anything that has the concept of “beauty on the go” – something I can carry in my dance bag and after I’m donew with class/rehearsal and have to go on to the next thing it would be great not to have to “waste time” putting on the full face and using this is a quick way to get ready, add gloss, mascara and go! Can’t wait to test this!

    Sounds interesting. Would love to try this product.

  • I was in Japan many years ago and recall something like this.

    Individual sheets of foundation just sound so smart-why didn’t I think of that? Would love to be a tester…
