In the beginning I really liked this product. It does deliver on the airbrush effect, however it slides off your face in about an hour, even though I have really dry skin. The colour range is good, and the little bottle is nice ( in Ireland and Europe we have the 'dream satin' version, which is bigger). MY pump broke but that was my own fault. I only use this foundation now over places where I have big pores on top of a more long lasting foundation, but its a bit useless on its own
this product would be your DREAM foundation if u have normal or dry skin...which i do.it does not exaggerate pores and fine lines and is VERY moisturizing.the texture is silk soft and a little goes a long way...i find that when i wear this product and remove my skin looks amazing(pimples do not come up.they seem reduced) for people with oily skin this product is sooo not recommended.i feel that it would slip during wear and increase the oiliness of the skin and may cause breakouts on oily skinned people. hope this review helps ya! :) love this product on myself!
Package: It has a pump =) hygienic and you can dose how much you need.
Price: I got it with discount, but even without that I think Maybelline is pretty affordable
Coverage: medium, it's sheer enough to let your own colour shine through, but it does cover up
Formula: not too liquidy or to creamy
Mat/glow: it has a natural glow in it, so you don't need to use highlighter. If I had to choose whether is more matt or shiny, I'd pick matt.
I would recommend & when you don't like it, you can think by yourself that it wasn't that expensive!
I bought this foundation last summer and i thought it was pretty decent. So after having no sucess with other foundations in the fall i decided to buy this again, im very pale and ended up buying the lightest color. Ummm...there lightest colour is waay to dark on me. Like im talking several shades too light and too pink. Im finding i am beggining to hate this stuff. Even with a smashbox primer and setting power this stuff is really greasy by 10:00(when i put it on at 7:30) and i dont even have oily skin. By lunchtime this is mostly gone with whatevers left sticking to my skin in weird places. Sure it looks good when you first put it on (if you have the right color) but its definatly NOT something i will be buying again.
REVIEW OFMAYBELLINE ~DREAM LIQUID MOUSSE ........
I absolutely loveeeeeeeee this product! I have it in the classic ivory/ light (2) color and am very impressed and happy with this product!
It is not thick or pastey and goes on my skin like a dream....it is so
velvety and smooth and does a great job in concealing blemishes or redness! Its a bit expensive here in Australia... a 30 ml bottle is $21.95!
I cant believe some MUA members can get it for $7...what a steal!!!
This product is buildable...you can apply it sheer or more intense but it never lookes caked on and doesn't feel like you have makeup on....I apply my PHYSICIANS FORMULA MINERAL WEAR TALC FREE LOOSE POWDER IN CREAMY NATURAL on top and it really gives me an airbursh finish!
I am on my second bottle of this and am really loving it...the consistency is amazing.....I highly recommend this product!
I bought this for about a little over $7 in Pure Beige(Medium2). The color matches perfectly and it blends super well. I haven't had any problems with it. It comes with a pump and you can lock the pump as well so there is no product that accidently comes out!:) I use one pump for my whole face and it is the right amount. the coverage is medium to full. I really like it. :D
I'm actually quite liking this foundation. I was sick of all the HE foundations breaking me out and looking like crap on my skin so thought I'd go back to DS brands. I was nervous about trying this as I remembered reading several reviews saying how this got really greasy and oily on some people's skin (I have combo oily skin and my skin oils up very easily) so thought I'd stay away...but seeing as it was on special offer for £5.99 I thought I''d give it a go.
What I really like is the naural coverage this gives me. I hate foundations with heavy or thick coverage so the fact that this foundation just looked like my own skin was good. It doesn't provide much coverage but I don't mind - I'm the sort of girl who lets her blemishes shine through ;) It spreads really easily but make sure to moisturize first. I usually apply ontop of a primer but even without primer it just glides on effortlessly.
Lasting power is okay - it lasts all day ontop of primer and with setting powder ontop, although it does tend to fade on my upper lip...it doesn't get oily if I use it ontop of primer. If I'm going somewhere fancy I like to put this foundation ontop of the original dream matte mousse foundation so I get coverage from the mousse but a more natural looking texture from the liquid version.
The bottle is very sanitary. I haven't experienced any breakouts or irritation from this foundation, and that means something because I have very acne-prone sensitive skin. The colour selection here in the UK is ok, although I find them to not have enough yellow undertones in them. I'm an NC40-44 tan skinned and yellow undertoned but luckily I found a shade that suited me quite well.
I'd definately repurchase this. :)
I really wanted to like this. I know someday I should switch to department store foundation, but I just can't spend the money. The price on this is good, I found it for 40% off but even at regular price it is less than $10. The formula is great, it feels light and silky, but covers well and blends easily. I absolutely love the package, the only thing I gave it 5 stars on. I think all liquid foundation should come with a pump. So easy to get the right amount. All sounds great right? Except one huge detail... my oh my is this YELLOW. I saw some other reviewers had trouble finding a color match and I was no exception. I have light skin with a warm undertone and I bought the second lightest shade because the lightest one looked too pink. A streak of it on my cheek looked like it would match ok, but the whole face application was a disaster and I had a terribly obvious line on my jaw where the makeup was. I really should have tried it at home before I wore it at work all day! Overall very disappointed as I really do like the formula. Maybe I will try the lightest shade, but it is more likely going back to the store.
Maybelline dream mousse liquid in light ivory:
Light Ivory, my ass. I'm scotch-irish, so I'm always at the pasty end of the spectrum, but L1 was Barbie skin pink, so I went for the lightest yellow/nuetral tone. Ha. I'm Kim Kardashian in this. That said, if you can get a color match, this stuff kicks bootay. About $10, this is full coverage with a slightly glowy natural finish. Full coverage as in I put it on my arm, and couldn't see the veins through the skin anymore. Kabuki, Illamasqua, Maybelline Dream Liquid. In that order. Full Coverage. Wears well, if you tend to the dry you could skip powder, if you're normal, you may need t zone, if oily... I've got no idea. I'd guess you'd have to powder it down. Goes on and blends well, lots of slip, then sets and stays pretty well. For the money, if you can find your shade, this rocks.
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..
