I need a make up without sunscreen. I add my own, finding very few sunscreens work for me. I also over-react to absorbants in cosmetics, though my skin is normal-combination.
This was horrible. It was so thick it didn't come out of the bottle unless I opened the cap up and stuck in a finger. Then, even when combined with Origins sunscreen, the stuff was thick. The more I left it on my face, the more is started to do dull my face. The same thing happened when I tried a bit on my arm and neck. It just kept making the skin dry and tight, and I don't have dry skin! I'm spending the $42 for NARS illuminating foundation next time. This is junk.
I used this product off and on for the past couple years. I alternated between medium 1 and medium 2.5 depending on how tan my skin was, and sometimes mixed the two shades together. I was never crazy about this foundation but whenever I tried a different foundation it turned out to be worse so I would just return to this. I tried to like it but the coverage was just too masky and heavy. It was obvious that I had foundation on. Once I saw a picture of myself wearing it and it looked like I was wearing a thick layer of a cream to powder foundation with powder on top!! There was no way to make it look natural--I would even mix equal parts with a liquid highlighter and apply that with a damp sponge to sheer it out and it was still full coverage!! The coverage was so full that my light colored eyebrows practically disappeared into my skin, which looked especially freakish in photos! This foundation took forever, like 4 or 5 hours, to melt into the skin where the coverage and texture looked even remotely natural. My t-zone can get oily on a warm day, and this foundation made it 10X worse. If I applied this before noon, I would be a total oil slick by evening. It would also separate and slide apart on my skin-especially around my mouth and on my cheeks it would get really splotchy. The last thing, which I think is the worst thing a foundation can do, is that it oxidized horribly!! I couldn't wear it for more than 6 hours without looking super orange. I have very light blonde hair, so when this foundation would oxidize I looked ridiculously fake. There is nothing good about this foundation that I can think of. It says airbrushed finish on the bottle, so if by airbrushed they mean heavy orange and shiny, then it's spot on. Like i said, I returned to this foundation a few times thinking I could make it work, but that definitely wasn't happening. Maybe it just didn't react well with my skin, but I would not recommend this.
I used this about three years ago, but found that the colors were too orange for me and the product didn't look natural on my skin even though I used a little bit. I found that it worked better when I mixed it with some moisturizer. I wouldn't rebuy this because I find bb creams better to work with.
This is my favorite drugstore foundation. To be honest the only foundation I like more in MAC Satinfinish. I think the result of this is rather close. I get pretty pale in the winter but I am Native American so I have a warm undertone. I have found that most drugstore brands' pale tones usually have a very pinkish tone which I am not at all. So one thing I love about this line is that it has warm pale tones.
This gives a beautiful finish that is very natural and dewy. One thing I don't like is that the straw is not long enough to get to the bottom of the bottle. Great stuff though.
This is one of my favorite foundations! I have warm undertones and I found this foundation has a wide varieties of warm colors, including one that fits my skin tone perfectly (#5 Creamy Natural).
-Wide selection of colors
-Easy to use pump
-Gives a dewy finish
-Light coverage that is hard to build
-If you have dry skin (like me) it will cause flaky patches
-Not very long lasting
I found that using a primer and setting it with a powder helps the foundation last longer, but not by much. :(
My ultimate drug-store go-to foundation. I've never tried a drugstore foundation better suited for my skin type, and skin color. I cannot begin to say how many compliments I've gotten about my skin, women of all ages question if my skin is naturally this perfect. Granted, I've never had a problem with acne, but it really gives the flawless yet natural airbrush finish. I've bought 3 bottles so far (in different shades to create a dimensional face) and it's lasted me at least 3-4 months each (about 2 pumps a day, I have a large face haha.). Around wintertime, I'm a perfect shade Medium 2.5.
I love how it comes in a pump, but one little downside is after I'm about done using the bottle, I try to scrape the insides with the pump pipe and it breaks off. But you can reattach it easily. Just now, I use a brush to cleanup the last bits of foundation.
While desperately researching every makeup option out there for my poor broken-out, ultra-reactive, sensitive, allergic skin desperately looking for a replacement for my discontinuned HG foundation Maybelline Natural Perfecting Mineral liquid foundation, I came across this realizing it had similar ingredients. Even after putting it on, it had a very similar finish and consistency as my HG so I got really excited. However, this is defintely not as good as my adored long-gone foundation. This ended up clogging me up and breaking me out a bit because gets so oily by the end of the day. But what's worse is that this oxidizes/turns orange immediately after hitting the sunlight outside! I have this in the lightest shade and next thing I know I have oompa loompa streaks on my arm where I patted the foundation onto my cosmetic wedge before putting it on my face, so I cringed at the way my face probably looked after I realized that! So sad though because that left me still on the lookout for a liquid makeup that does not break me out. This ended up being a big "oh well" and is about to get returned to Ulta very soon. Maybelline, get it together, girl!
ICK! I had to use this again while waiting on my mineral makeup order to come in and man this super-sucks!! I started breaking out all over my face while using this and it's cause this stuff is so greasy/nasty. And then when I caught a glimpse of myself w/this makeup on in a brightly lit mirror, it looked AWFUL. It just sits on top of my skin like a bunch of gross tinted oiliness, not like skin at all! Back to Ulta this shall go..
I think this is a wonderful product. It certainly works as well or better than the Este Lauder foundation it replaced. The bottle, with its little pump is great: you get just the right amount of product... not too much, not too little.
I have moderately dry skin. I use this product over Neutrogena SPF 15 moisturizer and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance. My skin has never looked so good.
This is a wonderful foundation. I have tried every foundation out there and ALWAYS come back to Dream Liquid Mousse. The texture is super smooth and easy to blend. The finish is absolutely flawless and slightly dewy. Blemishes are easily concealed with just a small amount of product. My face truly looks airbrushed and glowey after I use this foundation...almost like I have perfect skin! I get many compliments on how healthy my skin is but nobody knows it's just that I'm wearing a really good foundation. Have bought many bottles and will continue to buy more. Also this is great for people with dry skin!
I like this foundation but it is nothing special compared to my other foundations.So I just have it in the back of my foundation drawer.It feels nice on your face and the color selection is nice.Since it is nothing special I would'nt buy it again, but that doesnt mean it is bad.
