Good for cheap daily makeup. An improvement over the jar mousse which I had as this form is cleaner. However the down side is that the coverage is not as good as the mousse which was buildable. Not too dry or oily. However does not have much staying power. Goes off after a couple of hours. But it does give you a natural look :) I would use this when I'm going out for a casual day with friend and don't want to look like I'm piling on too much makeup. probably good for someone with almost flawless skin that just need minimum coverage :)
However I do not see much difference between this and some other some other maybelline foundation i was using Angelift foundation. Basically you can find lots of drugstore foundation like this, light , natural , blends well but comes off after a couple of hours..
I have some mixed feelings- but do like this product very much. I love the pump feature and the first color I got was a perfect match for my skintone. I like the finish and how easily it glides on.
I do have drier skin so that's probably why this works okay for me. I also live in Colorado so my skin is even drier most of the time.
However, I am in Florida on vaca now and I already notice a difference...my skin looks a little oilier by afternoon time because of the foundation. So....in a hot, humid place or oiler skin, this stuff may not be the best but drier skins in drier climates should be just fine.
It is a nice foundation and I also haven't had any breakouts- been weaing for about a month.
I have very mixed feelings about this product. I love how it smoothes and evens out my skin with the perfect amount of coverage. It really does give you that airbrushed look. I've gotten so many compliments on my skin being glowy and perfect whenever I wear it. The pump feature is great; it only takes me two squirts to get it to look just how I want it to.
The down side to this product is after about two or three hours my t-zone looks like an oil slick. My skin is a bit oily, but it has never even appeared close to how oily this stuff makes it look. Adding powder throughout the day helps a bit, but it's still just really frusterating. I want a liquid that will last all day.
It's been over a year since I last purchased this product and I was roaming the drugstore aisles the other day and decided I wanted to try it again. The foundation still gives a perfect airbrushed look when first applied and it so light that you don't even notice it on. But it still makes my face look like I took a swim in a grease pit.
So I decided I would try to play scientist and mix some in with my Revlon Color Stay for Oily skin, and I will say this helped some. My skin still got a little oily after about six hours with it on, but not near as badly as before. It also helped thin out the Color Stay which, although it is a great foundation, can get very heavy and thick on the skin.
I gave it one star because they have good color blendability, but that's where it stops. I have very oily skin so I should have know better, my face was an oil slick within 2 hours and anything that came it contact with my skin would have my foundation on it. Primer and mattfying powder didn't help at all. I'm now using Bare Minerals matte and it's amazing!
My best friend used this for a long time before realizing she didn't even need foundation (yes, it makes me mad too) and since she really liked it, I decided to give it a go.
I went to my local drug store and asked the beautician for a foundation that had good coverage and lasting power. I was willing to spend some serious dough on it, but I was delightfully surprised when she said that the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse would do the trick for one nine dollars and some pocket change. I am fair skinned and I bought the second lightest which is a little too dark for me (but I won't take off any marks because of that considering that it was my fault). The next morning, I applied it carefully with a sponge and I am pretty impressed with the results. My face looks fresh and even, not oily at all.
The packaging is really convenient and easy to use. The little pump dispenses a good amount of the thick liquid.
I feel like this a hit or miss product. I do have combination skin, but after reading the previous reviews, I see that a lot of people had problems with shiny-ness or having the product "melt off"; I didn't experience any of that. I recommend trying a sample first, to make sure that you're compatible with this product.
EDIT: I'm taking off two lippies because the lightest shade was just too dark for me! I had the awful orange mask and I'm sure people were thinking "do you want some face with that foundation?" i don't recommend this to people with fair skin.
I feel like this was over-hyped. I wasn't that impressed with it. I didn't notice it doing much of anything. I guess it evened out my skin a little but I didn't notice much of an "air brush finish" as they claim.
I like the container it comes in except I think mine might have been a little broke when I bought it because, while it works, it doesn't go down right. But it's much easier to handle than other foundations I've used due to it's pump.
They have quite a large color selection and yet the pales don't quite hit me perfect, as with all foundations I've tried to date. The one I settled for, being the palest, is still slightly pink on me. I need a more neutral.
As for the price, I can't fairly judge that. I got mine on 40% discount from Mejiers for $4.50, which is pretty cheap but not what it typically runs most places.
All in all, not my favorite. I won't rebuy.
I love this foundation! I have normal to dry skin and it goes on great, even over areas where normally I have problems with the foundation settling into my pores. They only caveat is color selection....I'm a super fair olive skinned girl, and while the porcelain ivory was light enough, it was a little pink for me...and the next product up was also pink....because it's such a cheap foundation I ended up buying one of the darker, more olive colors, and I mix the two. Works pretty well, but I wish they had a very pale color with more yellow in it, instead of pink. Oh, I also have very sensitive skin and have had no itching or burning from this foundation, and I've been using it for over a month now.
Looking back on it, this foundation caused my normal-skin type to break out. A lot. And as stated, I have a normal skin type, so the chances of me breaking out are extremely rare.
This foundation is also very cakey and thick. It's easy to apply and blend, yet the product can still look "heavy".
This foundation provides such heavy coverage, that it excels at covering up acne scars and blemishes.
Plus, this foundation is really cheap. You can buy it for $8.54 at Walmart, $9.74 at Walgreens, or $7.27 on Amazon.com.
For the record, I wouldn't reccomend this foundation to anyone unless you have ultra-ultra dry skin.
I had pretty high hopes for this foundation, it made my skin look nice and flawless for about 30 minutes and then it quickly felt like it was melting off my face. I even set it with the dream matte powder but that didn't really help. The good parts are that it is easily blendable, there was a shade that actually matched my skin very well and I LOVED the pump packaging a lot better than some other foundations that get everywhere or are easily contaminated. I also think it was the cause to my recent break out considering I hadnt had one before using this for quite a while. I really wouldnt repurchase it or recommend it.
This product would be great for people who aren't as pale as I am. The shade 01 is still to orangey for me, but I'm a redhead and it's hard to find a good foundation that matches my skin. The pump is a very nice packaging feature, and there's even a little cap to put over it it you want to travel with this foundation, and I think the bottle is glass. As far as coverage goes, this covered my dark circles very well, as well as some minor redness in my cheeks. It did emphasize some dry patches on my nose but a lot of foundations do that on me. Overall If you're not super pale, buy it. It's one of the nicer drugstore foundations, along with Revlon ColorStay with SoftFlex.
