I hated this. It doesn't blend in well at all, and like one poster already said, it settles in creases of your face and pores no matter how much you prime your face beforehand. It doesn't look natural at all, and the only way you could describe the look is, "cakey." Look for another foundation, this one is definitely not worth your time!
I love this foundation... well loved until I bought some mac mineralize skinfinish foundation :) but if I'm in a bind and cant afford expensive foundation I will use this. I have very dry skin and if u don't slather the moisturizer on before using this it will be very bad... but apply some moisturizer and make sure you get the right color i got number 2 light and it was perfect coloring. I would say go lighter than you think you need with this one. I really don't know why alot of people are hating this product I felt that this was such a good price for a good foundation. It covers up blemishes real nice and I have sensitive skin and it didn't break me out. I don't think this foundation is for everyone especially dry skin but I have dry skin and make it work. It also is not dewy it is matte so it's kind of like powder and foundation in one. I like to have more dewy skin so I don't reach for it too often. Use a wedge to apply this foundation, a brush might not work. hope that helps!
One of the worst foundations that I've ever tried. Cakey, messy and the colors are terrible. Even the lightest color looked like it was muddy and brown. I've tried a lot of foundations (Tons actually) and this is at the rock bottom. MAybelline either needs to consider reformulating this or getting rid of it all together. I moisturized thoroughly before putting this on and it still looked like I put frosting on my face. Tried a brush, damp sponge and fingers and it was a no go. I returned to to Walgreens and the lady in the cosmetics dept agreed with my opinions on this. Waste of money. Don't bother unless you like to look like your makeup was put on with a spatula.
Way too cakey for my face. This item is full coverage and after having it for a month the product gets dry then its hard to apply on your face. They don't have a great selection of colors either. I am in between the colors. Their medium 3 is too light and the medium 4 is too dark. Waste of money..
At first, I liked this. But after a few uses, it seems too dry. I have a tough time blending it over larger areas of my face.
I don't understand why so many people say bad things about this. I LOVE it.
It really evens out my skin tone and even lightens the dark circles under my eyes (which can get really bad after pulling an all nighter studying)
I do agree that the packaging is bad and very hard to see through, but I happened to luck out and got a shade that matched my skin perfectly. I used my E.L.F. foundation brush b/c I hate the feel of foundation on my fingers, and it makes it incredably easy to apply
Sets smoothly and doesn't need a powder over it (I use one anyways though)
Leaves my face looking flawless and smooth
I certainly wouldn't buy this again. The cakey formula emphasized all the dryness on my skin, was heavy and stifling on my skin (burning underneath my eyes), and caused break-outs. I only gave it a one because I passed it onto my friend and she seemed to like it; God knows why.
so i bought this about 2 years ago because i had never seen a product like it. i used it on occasion until i bought bare minerals, then dream matte just stayed untouched in my makeup bag. when i ran out of bareminerals i decided to use dream matter again until i could head to sephora. i ended up just settling for dream matte for a few months. i then stopped using it at all for a year and just a few days ago i started using it again. it keeps my combo skin oil free but it some areas it drys up my skin. the color is a little off, its a little more orangey than my skin tone. its not the best for covering blemishes but i use bare minerals to post conceal.
I got this product through a swap and I have to say I love it!! I usually use Lancome (liquid) or PurMinerals for a foundation. The coverage looked natural! The color I received was perfect (I was so lucky). It's not the BEST foundation in the world, but hey for a drugstore brand its great. i will definitely re-purchase. Also I agree with the poster below.. It looks great in natural light by in photos I look white as hell ! CASPER white
Perhaps is because I've got oily skin...but this make up just sucks.
I bought it because of the cute packaging and the texture innovation, and of course because it claimed to leave a matte face...yeah, matte, right...¬¬
First of all, I don't know if I got a color that wasn't for me or something...because 2 hours after I put it on...I am as pale as I've never been, chalky face...you get the picture. Then of course is the matte power...doesn't work on me. I think I get oil from this make up, instead of hiding it...
And last, but not least, when I have a little dry area, this foundation makes it even more obvious.
If you have oily skin, just forget this...
