Not the worse foundation I have tried. It does give a nice finish, does not last very long few hours tops (definitely needs a primer underneath). I have very fair skin and even in the lightest shade it tended to go a pinkish orangey color. Would be a better product with more fair shades and longer wear time.
This product gave me good coverage with my freckles and impurities on my face, but it gave me lots of spots on my cheeks, I have never had spots on my cheek, but after using this product for a week, I found that I had quite a lot. I have dry/normal skin and I'm not an expert on skin, but this product was not right for my type of skin, so if you have skin like mine then i would advise not to use it that often otherwise you could get more spots like me. I have now stopped using this product and my skin has become a little clearer again.
I don't know why I bought this product. I've always used liquid foundations. When at school, everyone seemed to use this. I thought I'd give it a try to see what the fuss was about. I learned it was about nothing. It's cakey, I think it even looks cakey in the container. It feels really heavy on the skin and doesn't last long at all. I used to use the dream satin liquid foundation all the time, and although I don't find it to be amazing it's far better than this!
I used this about 6 months ago and it made my skin peeling and ugly looking(ilookedlikeazombie). I'm not the one to hate on makeup but this has got to go. Plus this made my skin so oily. I was a greaseball, I'm telln ya.
You don't even deserve one star. Pssshh.
I have used this foundation for about a year now. It sounds awful, but I use it over my liquid foundation sometimes (I don't tend to use it on it's own that much) for extra coverage and for a matte finish that doesn't look really powdery.
A great thing about this regarding the packaging is that you really can use every last bit as its in a glass pot, unlike with liquid foundation with pump dispensers and glass tubes where you always get some left that you won't be able to use.
I don't find this particularly long lasting, however it doesn't claim to be. It does transfer quite easily.
I have quite normal skin so tend to get quite a nice finish with this. I can see how people find it quite cakey though. And as this is a mattifying mousse, it can be a bit drying and is by no means a moisturising foundation.
I do like that because its not a liquid foundation, you don't have to wait for it to 'dry' and you can carry on applying blusher etc on top straight away. Always good to save time!
I wouldn't recommend this if you have particularly dry skin, however of you're after a smooth matte finish, this is great.
When I saw this product I was very exited to buy it !!!!!!!!
A nice smooth Mousse foundation that promises full coverage I had to try it !!!
. Cakes up
. Settles into fine lines
. No coverage
. If u have acne or pimples it highlights the problem
. Looks terrible underneath the eyes as it settles into the fine lines and creases up
. Only lasts 4 hours with primer and powder
. Cute little glass bottle
-_- that's it !
I really wanted this foundation to work I tried applying it with different brushes and nothing worked ! I thought it looked really good on my skin at first like AMAZING but then 10 minutes later it oxidised and just looked terrible and started doing all the things that I mentioned above
And if u have dry skin this would definitely settle into your skin terribly !!
And if u have oily skin then in would fade of in patches like it did with my sister
Never buying this again !!
Waste of $22
When i saw this maybelline dream matte mousse i had to try it!
Promising a full coverage matte look it seemed worth a try for my acne prone skin. so i gave it a go, It didn't sit on my skin right if you know the feeling, it was cakey and actually quite drying :/ which was unusual for me! the coverage was good but the color selection is awful, i find that once it dries it goes a bit darker in color! not impressed! Overall not the right foundation for my combination acne skin :/
As someone who has always used bare minerals, I'm starting to branch out and use real foundation that actually lasts for more than a few hours.
I saw some good reviews on this product and as my face is combo, I went with the matte version. I really do like it... but as it being the only real foundation I've used (I generally use powders) I can't say if it's better than any others on the market.
I apply it with my fingers, and it lasts hours. It makes my face look pretty much flawless and covers under my eyes well. I hate when makeup is visible but this is so light and blendable- looks super natural. I set it with bare minerals foundation and if for some reason my face gets shiny (warm weather/dancing at a bar) I can just put more powder on top. The tub will last me a long time.
May buy again or may try another product.
This is my favorite Maybelline foundation. After a few hours into the day, my t-zone starts to look like the greasy beach of the BP oil spill, so their Fit Me makeup was too greasy, and the Dream Liquid Mousse clogged my pores and felt ultra-heavy. I picked up the Dream Matte Mousse on a whim from Target, since it was only $7.99. I got it in the shade "light 02" (I am a MAC NC25) and when I opened it I noticed that it was much darker than I expected, however, once I applied it with my fingers and let it set for a minute, it was probably the most perfect shade match I've ever had! It gave medium buildable coverage and feels SO lightweight - it didn't even feel like I was wearing any makeup! It didn't cover all of my spots, but it did even out my skin tone and my face just looked amazing! I set it with Maybelline Dream Matte powder and used a little bit of NARS Orgasm blush on the apples of my cheeks and then went off to school. When I checked my t-zone in the mirror about four hours later, I was slightly oily, but not nearly as bad as usual. I would recommend this foundation to anybody with mildly oily or combination skin!
This foundation is cheap, doesn't break me out, and I can blend 2 to 3 different shades of it at one time to address the changing color of my face. Luckily the low price allows for this. It also seems to last a very long time. I used to apply with my fingers, then evolved to using a sponge triangle thingee, but more recently I decided to grow up finally and started using a foundation brush (Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Expert Face Brush)! I'm in love.
I don't know if I've quite mastered the "buffing" technique, but so far so good. I dot smears of cream foundation on my forehead and nose (slightly darker shade), cheeks and sides of face (medium shade), and chin and down jawline/neck (lightest shade). Then I use the brush to sort of press gently on my face in a sweeping motion from the center of my face outwards and then go back and buff the make up in a circular fash...oh just go watch the You Tube video!
There might be a better foundation out there for me, but for the cost, this is my current go-to. As well, I highly recommend the brush for application. The finish is much smoother and I don't find I'm blotting off excess afterwards or even later in the day when my oily T-zone takes over. I'm a grown up now. Legit.
05/20/2013 Udate: went back to using this after trying a few other foundations. This still seems to give me the best finish...good for very oily skin. Now just applying with my fingers since I can always confirm my hands are clean by washing first...not as easy to tell if your brushes are really clean.
