Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel

FYI: I am a Latina woman with very fair olive skin, combination type (dry forehead, oily nose & chin, normal cheeks) in early maturity (minor facial lines, redness). Shade refs: LM Creme Silk in Cream Ivory, Bobbi Brown in Warm Ivory, Revlon Colorstay in Buff FYI (2): Maybelline tests its products on live animals. For this reason, I have ceased purchasing their products. This review refers to product use prior to my awareness of their animal testing status. I used Dream Matte in Classic Ivory, decent skin match. I applied the product with a standard (paddle type) foundation brush. Light strokes and very careful blending leave an elegant, smooth matte finish and medium coverage with a dry, lightweight feeling on my skin. Can be used to conceal dark circles, but work quickly. Sets very well. Nice "canvas" on which to apply other makeup. If you get a good match, this is a very nice choice for photography. It lasted pretty well but this isn't an ultra-matte makeup. If you're oily, you'll eventually need to blot, but you'll get better wear from this foundation than most, especially if you apply over a mattifying primer and top with powder. Drier skins will need a moisturizer or moisturizing type primer. Jar packaging should be updated to prevent waste and make for more sanitary use. Use a q-tip or small plastic spatula, or other tool to scoop out the foundation. Don't dip your brush or use fingers since this will transfer bacteria to the jar.
