Besides the cute packaging I did not like this product AT ALL. I find it is very cakey and clings to the tiniest of dry patches (I have very oily skin and hardly any dry patches but this makes them visible). The mouse consistency feels gorgeous but once on the face it shows lines and leaves very small white sandy grains on my face. I definitely regret buying this product as I have one got a couple of uses out of it. maybe for people with very oily clear skin this product would be successful though
I get the bad reviews on this. It is pretty hard to figure out how to make this look flawless, I would definitely suggest a primer because this will sink into lines. If you use the right technique and a primer this is amazing. I don't like the fact that it really doesn't set even though its matte, I do need to use a powder to stop it from moving around. Not because of oils since my skin is a good normal because of the fact that anything that touches it can move it. I'm Light 4 Nude and NC25-30. The first method I have is with your fingers. Dab your fingers in the product so there's no pilling, stipple it onto your skin and blend in light small circular motions. If you don't have a round top buffing brush this method is for you. The next method is amazing and makes it look airbrushed. It's using a round top kabuki/buffing brush. I use the Ecotools Domed Bronzing Brush. When I heard this would work with a round top buffing brush I didn't thing it would work since every method other than my fingers looked terrible but I tried it anyways. It looked flawless. I just dab my brush into the jar (never swirl finger or brush in jar or it would have too much product. Too much product results in the same coverage but a terrible finish) and buff it onto my skin. It gives full coverage.
The foundation feels good on my skin. It's slightly difficult to apply because it has a tendency to be crumbly. My major problem with it is that it makes my skin orange. I have fair skin so obviously I bought the fairest option. You'd think I bought a cheap self tanner. Won't buy again.
If you have acne or troubled skin, this is NOT for you. i have combination skin and this did not look good at all. I tried applying it with a sponge applicator, stippled brush, paddled brush, you name it. This was a sure miss for me.
I bought this foundation a couple of times already and found it very nice. It is light and matches my skin tone perfectly. It controls the oily T-zone if you apply it right but it does not really have much coverage and is probably good for people with light acne or no acne. It blends well with the skin tone and I would definetly repurchase it again.
This foundation has always been a staple in my makeup collection.
I first started using this product when it initially came out and liked it a bunch. It has a great texture for oily skin, and leaves skin looking matte but not cakey when applied appropriately.
The only thing that I cannot stand is the packaging - I hate foundations that come in jars, and I do not like the liquid version of this product but I guess one has to put up with these sorts of technicalities.
I usually use a sponge to apply this product - the great thing is that sponges do not soak up this product the way they would if it was liquid, which allows for amazing blendability and a flawless look.
fabulous stuff! Apply with a stipple brush for a airbrushed look. Avoids putting your fingers in the jar. Made my skin look flawless.(usually dry/flaky..no prob with this product)
I loved this foundation when it was first released. I remember how it was like the biggest thing in the cosmetic industry at the time with the "mousse" technology. I loved how soft and fluffy the formula felt, and how it would just glide onto my skin, giving me a beautiful, soft look but with medium to full coverage. I never had any problems with dry skin and flaking. But I did eventually stop using it because I had qualms about the packaging. Constantly twisting open the jar and sticking your fingers can not be good for hygiene reasons. Plus I noticed the mousse formula drying out and thus become difficult to apply.
I have 2 jars of this product, different shades. Hard to find my match. All had an orangey tint. But the lightest shade seems to work for me. It breaks me out if I use it to often but using it every other day seems to be fine with my skin. I will finish my jar but will not be buying this product again.
I'm extremely disappointed in this foundation. I read and heard great things about it and had to give it a try. The first time I used it, it was flawless, I was so proud I even recommended it to others. After other attempts, I could never mirror the success of my first trial. It's cakey, weird textured and it has broken me out horribly after my skin has been doing very well. I have probably gotten my last use of it, and sadly it's a full jar. One of my biggest gripes is the difficulty in application. I scoured beauty blogs and YouTube videos for tips on the best form of application. I initially used my Sonia Kashiuk flat top brush because it's the only one that seemed to provide a decent application and blending, but I always felt as little I used, it was always too much. I then read a review where a couple of people stated the best application was your fingers. I absolutely hate applying foundation with my hands, but I have gave this technique a try since it was recommended by so many, but that failed miserably-by the end of the day, my skin looked like an oil slick-I'm so done with it. I've been wanting to try the liquid foundation from this line, but dream matte mousse has turned me of, so I'm done with Maybelline foundations (their BB cream broke me out even worse) I'll stick with what they do best-Mascara.
