I normally wear Clinique foundation..but even the lightest shade during the autumn/winter months is too pink/dark for my skin tone. So I decided to go with the Light Ivory color of dream matte mousse and i LOVE it! I apply it with my clinique foundation brush and it covers really well. I have freckles..so I like to cover them as much as possible. I still wear my clinique pressed powder (I refuse to give that up) and the finish is light...but the coverage is great. I will definitely use all of this product and buy it again!
I bought the Light Beige-Medium 0 shade. I was so surprised that I found a shade that suited my light-medium yellow olive skin in the drugstore. No pink or orange whatsoever. Bravo!! This is suitable for MAC C3-4, Stila D, MAC NC30 ladies. The finish goes on matte at first and then becomes glowy after an hour. The coverage is light-medium. I just wish it came in a compact style instead of having to dip finger/sponge into a jar.
i really thot this wud be a good product 4 me cuz i have combinations skin n its a matte foundation....but i was so dissapointed..the texture was actually really nice, n turned powdery when it touches ur skin, but thats about the only thing good about it...it made my face look cakey n weird even tho i used a lil n my skin is oily..i actually have really good glowing skin, but it seemed to make me look tired!! it dusnt have much staying power either...n u can constantly feel it on ur skin ick...n worst of all, no oil control at all..when there r so many amazing foundations out there, this really dusnt match up...
I absolutely love this product! I'm mixed: black and filipino, so my skin is medium dark with an olivy undertone(?) i was so happy to find the perfect shade for me and that it didn't make me look too dark, too light, or even ashy. my favorite part about this matte mousse is the texture of it and the coverage feels sooooo light. it really makes my skin look perfect! i don't have really bad skin so i don't really need anything heavy on me. even when it gets hot and my face gets a little oily with the makeup, my still looks good with a cool sheen [not the dirty oily kind of look] sometimes i'll use the neutrogena mineral powder for my nose. so yeeeeah, i found a matching color, my skin looks perfect and it doesnt look caked on. the glass bottle is cute and the product very affordable. i've repurchased many times. worth it!
Edit: even though the glass bottle seems small, the product lasts me a very long time! i was pleasantly surprised :)
Dried out my skin terrbily.
The application was alright though.
Wonderful coverage (I use it with a damp latex wedge sponge so I don't get more product than I need). This is a light, whipped makeup in a glass jar. This is a grail foundation for this cool undertoned medium skintone w/some freckles complexion. I'm extremely pleased and will definitely repurchase. I find the color selection very easy as you can get a pretty good idea of the shade through the glass on the jar bottom if the store doesn't have an available tester. Even though I have cool undertones, I use Nude 04 if that information helps anyone who may have similar coloring. The only thing that I have noticed that I'm not too happy with is that as it ages (I don't wear the same foundation daily as my skin has an opinion of it's own) but anyway, as this foundation may age a little it develops a little bit of a "pilling" characteristic to the texture which doesn't seem to affect the product's performance but you can tell the pilling texture in the jar if it happens (kind of like the pilling of a wool sweater).
I love the texture and the ease of application. Ivory matches my skin tone pretty good, although it's slightly on the orange side. But it makes my nose look flaky. Works good as an undereye concealer. Overall, this is a pretty good foundation. I'd buy again, because it's so fun to use:)
Got this item on sale. It doesn't go smooth on my skin. I tried applying with fingers or sponge. Didn't work. The texture is a bit dry. I already prep my skin with primer or lotion. Still not satisfactory result.
Oh my. Well I absolutely LOVE the texture, amazing. I tend to be drawn to maybelline foundations because I am EXACTLY poercelain ivory. Exactly. The coverage is amazing, blends beautifully, and as long as your skin is flawlessly smooth, looks fantastic for about an hour. It doesn't wear well, and, while it upon application it is lovely and matte and soft, if you get oily at all through the day like most foundations it just accentuates that and creates a bizarre sheen. I'm disappointed, but still wear it for just a quick trip into town because it feels so damn nice. My rimmel cool matte still wins over this one simply due to it's longevity.
i loved this product when i first got it about 3 months ago. it used to spread easily and applying was a snap. also the glass jar is really cute. my face looked very smooth when i had it on. however, it has grown increasingly cakey and now my face looks REALLY oily and shiny with this product on, and my face broke out. and i'm not even an oily/sensitive skin type person normally. will not repurchase.
