Spackle for skin! And it's pretty good spackle. This stuff paves over pores and mattifies my face quite well. This is NOT my daily foundation. My pasty-pale sensitive skin gets blotchy if I wear this more than 2 days in a row. But if I need to put on a fresh matte face for a solid 4-6 hours, this stuff is GREAT! It paves over reddish areas and dark under-eye circles better than most other foundations. The texture is soft, smooth and fluffy. It blends beautifully, sets well with any powder, and is a good base for eye shadows. As others have said, it can get cakey on dry patches, and it melts after a few hours of heat. But it "does" super-matte really well. I am paler than NC15, and this is a drugstore foundations that has a shade that works for me. It's not a perfect match, but it's a good quick fix for uneven skintone when I need extra coverage. I'll always keep a jar in my makeup bag.
This foundation is a mousse that is very soft when you apply it on your face. It dries matte like it says. I got a color that was a little bit too yellow but it blends well. It hides pores and makes your skin look smooth but does not really cover any large pimples... will probably need a concealer to do that job. You need to apply moisturizer before for sure, otherwise it crumbles on dry areas. It doesn't stay that long on hot days and within a few hours it is long gone if I am sweating... it stays on the dry areas tough. Other than that, I like it.
Very pinky undertone (not at all suited for my yellow undertones ) the packaging is my worst nightmare, very unhygienic because its in a pot instead of something like a pump or squeazy tube. Shade is too dark (perks of trying to find foundation on the high-street). Will not repurchase ever.
Honestly, this foundation is terrible in my opinion. Having combination skin, I find that this foundation clings to the dry areas of my face, and disappears off my oily t-zone. It also oxidised on my face as well as broke me out. I do not get on with this product at all.
Absolutely horrible- it has all the nasty things I don't want in a foundation: poor color selection, uneven, cakey and orange with a tendency to settle in dry parches.
Luckily this wasn't expensive so I didn't waste too much $$
I bought the Dream Matte Mousse in the shade Cocoa at the price of 2 for £10 ( Boots had an offer going on) and I am really pleased with the results. It left a flawless look on my face.
but I wish there was more dark colours to choose from, the cocoa shade is a little bit too dark for my skin so i use the maybelline fit me powder in a lighter tone to lighten up my face.
I did recommend it to a family member who loves it just as much as i do.
This mousse foundation is a great choice as it goes on so matte and no powder is needed. the coverage is build-able but one coat is medium coverage. The colors are surprisingly neutral. One hint is that this is a great eye-shadow primer. I use the lightest one on its own for an ivory shadow or as a primer. The advantage of using this for a primer is that first it is cheap for a big jar and unlike other primers it comes off easily. In the summer I use 2 shades darker than my skin to give me a bit of a tan color. anyway it think this is a miracle product and the liquid version is sublime and is up there with Lancome and the like. There is no need to buy department store foundations anymore girls. Save your money for Shoes.....
I wanted this foundation to work out...I really did. It comes in a cute little jar, and it's fun to put on. It has this cool fluffy texture that evens out to a matte powdery finish when you apply it.
The powdery finish is nice, but it highlights any blemishes or flakes on your skin, and I would not recommend it if you have any fine lines because it tends to collect in them. The mousse kind of "sits" on top your skin, and never really sinks in. As the day goes on, it mixes with the oils in your skin and makes a greasy mess. It transfers onto anything your face touches (makes for a messy cell phone screen!).
It slid off of my T-zone leaving it bare so the red discoloration showed. And it clung to my cheeks and looked oily and gross. I couldn't wait to get home to wash my face!
I've tried it several times with primers and powders, but it's just not designed for really oily skin.
I'm surprised I like this so much, actually. I find it easy to apply, and the shade (005) suits my skin really well. Wears well, and doesn't oxidize (a huge problem for me with liquid foundations). Nice coverage: medium. It does tend to cling to dry patches (which is why it gets 4 lippies instead of 5). Doesn't break me out. As good as, or better, than any HE products I've used
I thought this foundation was 'OK'. I got the shade light porcelain 004 which was a good match but a bit too light (the darker shades were too dark). I have oily skin so thought it would be good to keep me matte. However, it just started to completely dry out my face and it was going all flaky and didnt look healthy when I put the foundation on. It also looked a bit cakey and you could definitely tell I had it on. I did like the coverage as it was medium - full on my skin and doubled as my concealer at the time. I stopped using this because I went to put it on I twisted the lid off and it fell to pieces on the floor! The glass just broke! I don't think it was very strong because I had never dropped it so dont know what happened. Wouldn't repurchase because too drying and bad for skin. Think it have me more breakouts
