I would recommend this product if you have a stippling brush. I originally tried applying this with my fingers and with a flat foundation brush, and I hated it - I thought this product had no lasting power on my face, made my dry skin very oily while making my dry patches look very flaky, was cakey, and even made me break out! Enter the studio tools skunk brush, which changed the whole thing. I get a medium-coverage semi-matte finish that stays on for a decent amount of time (~half a day), does not break me out, and does not accentuate dry patches!
Highly highly recommend a skunk brush for application in swirling motions.

1. Unbelievably cakey & chalky.
2. Rubs onto everything, clothes,hands, items, ect...
3. It showed imperfection that i didn't even know i had!
4. Brings out all the dry patches on your face.
5. Very hard to blend.
I honestly dont know how people can work with such a product on a daily basis, one of the worst foundation i've ever tried. When i first put it on you could see streaks & it looked chalky & powdery, i didnt even wear it out for a day it looked that bad!!!

It says "dream matte mousse", but it's not matte at all. It looks smooth and perfect once after u apply it, but after less than an hour, my skin feels so so so oily and greasy and cakey. It's a waste of money, so do NOT purchase this!

This product is nice if you have nice skin to start with- my sister tried this and looked flawless. I however suffer from oiliness and slight acne and found this foundation heavy and the consistency rather strange. It was disapointing that this foundation oils up so quickly- looks heavy and clogs pores really badly. I could not wait to take it off and it now lies hidden somewhere in my bathroom cupboard

hated this. I bought it thinking it would be great because I am oily but want more than just a powder, so this was a happy medium...right? wrong! Horrid! Any dry patches you didn't know you had before, you certainly do after putting this on. It draws so much attention to them. And it just makes you look like you sprayed you face with a powder mist (not in a good way). I bought the lightest shade they have in the mousse (light 0) and it is too yellow for me and the next shade up is too dark. I like the idea of this, but didn't like the way it went on and looked on my skin. I also don't care for the fact that it is an open jar and not squeezed out..although I guess thats the only option for a mousse, unless they did more of a foam. It wasn't super expensive, but I also didn't purchase this as a bogo. I had higher hopes for this foundation. It just sits in the bottom of my case now and the only time I have used it is in a pinch or just lightly under the eyes just to get rid of it.

I really wanted to like this product, but i cant say that i do. It was way to cakey, drying, and orange for my skin. Oh, well another one bites the dust!

I Actually Really like this Product, I know some People say Its Cakey, But I dont Find it cakey at All, I apply it Over Maybelline Mineral Liquid Foundation And it Looks really Nice, I also get Comments on how 'Flawless' My skin Looks, Which is Unusual for me As i have Really Red natural Cheeks.
I suppose This Foundation would be Better If it Lasted a Little Longer, But its Fine For what i Paid for it, (Five Pounds At Superdrug.)
I really Like the Packaging, Its Just about Perfect For me, I Only marked it Down On packaging, Because It can Feel a Little Heavy.
Over all, Really Good Drugstore Foundation in my Opinion.

I really like this! after reading everybody elses reviews i can see where they are coming from when they say that it has no staying power, and can look cakey. I wear this over my normal foundation, that may sound wierd but i use it insted of a pressed powder. When i use it like that it does give a very even and perfect finish, i am lucky not to have "problem" skin but this still works lovely for my best friend who has a little redness and unevenesss. I do completely agree with people who say this is bad as a foundation, i have worn this alone and it does not last!! You could always try using a foundation primer or a lockdown powder (the sort that locks in all your foundation for a long lasting finish) but as i have already said there are ways to use this product that can really make your skin look flawless! Go try it :)

I bought this foundation on a weekend away when I forgot to pack my usual estee lauder foundation and just wanted a cheap one to use whilst I was away. My friend recommended it to me as its the only foundation shes ever used (!) Personally I found it lasted a ridiculously short amount of time before sliding all over my face, I was constantly having to remove it and reapply it just to maintain a decent complexion. It has quite a dulling effect on the skin tone, which meant I had to colour my face in concealer, bronzer, blusher, highlighter etc to stop my skin looking 'tired.' I think this product is low priced because its low quality. A far more superior well priced product is revlon colorstay.

Well, I have been having a bit of a love affair with Maybelline products recently so I decided to have a go with this mousse foundation too. I have been using the fairly new (UK) liquid mousse foundation and loving it. I didnt even remember buying this but I must have done and forgot about it because I had a new, unused pot in a handbag I havent used for a while. Well, once again I'm loving this foundation.
I like the mousse texture because it is so easy to apply. It took about 30 seconds to get the base perfect. I always let my foundation settle before applying the rest of my makeup. Usually I find that I need to add a little more foundation to my chin which has light acne scarring and round my nose. In this case after the usual 5 minute settling time my base looked perfect. My skin stays looking flawless for most of the day too. It was only when it came to gym time that I felt it slipping a little. Fine by me. I like the packaging, the pot is cute and I know its not the most hygenic way to package things but to be honest I'm not that bothered! I am always freshly showered when I use it so surely my hands are not that dirty!
Above all, what I really love about this foundation is that I feel comfortable and confident all day long in it...and since thats the sole reason I wear makeup - I'm onto a winner. The only problem I have now is deciding whether to wear this, the liquid mousse or the liquid mineral foundation - all by Maybelline. Hmmmmmm...this one is pipping the others just slightly...despite me giving them all 5 stars in my reviews!
