Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation

 

As I have mentioned before, Maybelline is one of my favorite affordable makeup brands. I really love their mascaras but something I've never branched out with is their foundations. I have been a little stuck in my ways with brands like Mac and Benefit for my foundation needs. Having heard a lot of good reviews on their Dream Matte Mousse foundation I decided to give it a try.
 With 13 colors in the range, from Ivory/Porcelain to Cocoa, I picked up Classic Ivory02, Sand03 and the Nude04. I like the packaging of the foundation, rather a heavy jar, but neat. This small jar contains an absolutely odorless and kind-of-pasty foundation which when pressed with a finger gives the feeling like one’s touching something like clay or fluff sugar candy. I have always preferred liquid foundations coz they are easy to blend on to my skin and do not appear cakey.


I prefer matte foundations. I am not keen on glowy foundations, I would rather my skin look natural and any glow be achieved with a highlighter. It also has no SPF meaning that it should photograph well. But for some reason, my face was a white hallow in photos-that’s one Con.

It has a gorgeous velvety, creamy texture and blends seamlessly with your skin leaving it soft and silky. I apply it using my finger better than the brush, because with the brush it flakes, and I don’t know why.

Also, I have been using this for two years now. However, for no reason, all of a sudden my skin started to hate it! I have tried redeeming the mousse by using it in combination with moisturizer, day cream, tinted moisturizer, and water, but the mousse always gives a flakey look to my face.

However, it lasts very well on my skin. I have had no allergic reactions to it either. But good does it do if it no longer blends well on my skin?!

P.S. Water-based non-comedogenic foundations work best for oily skin since they do not block the pores and feel lightweight on the skin.

What Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation Claims:

· Revolutionary whipped formula provides an air-soft, perfect matte finish coverage with a weightless feel.

· Color pigments offer superior coverage

· Blends effortlessly for a soft, natural-looking, even-toned result.

It sticks to any dry areas and emphasizes the size and shape of any blemishes. L


Pros:
Cheap
Easy to find anywhere
Basic colors are available and mixed you might be able to get this to work.
Goes on smoothly, no rough texture.
Long staying power and good product for Combination skin
Cons:
Does not last
Does not work with dry skin or overly oily skin
Oxidizes making an orange cast to the tone of color
Careful when applying to cover everything as it has a tendency to look patchy
If you have sensitive skin this is not the one for you.
Does not cover acne or problem areas.

This is really a disappointment for me with Maybelline.

P.S. . If you decide to buy this product, make sure you do the lid up tightly though because this product can dry out quite quickly.
