I actually really like this product. I have oily skin with large pores, and I think the trick with this foundation is to use a primer. I've never had any problems with this foundation accentuating my pores when I use a primer.
The color selection is OK--I got the lightest shade "Light Ivory 0" and it's still a bit yellow on me, but I have redness in my skin so the yellow is really good for correcting that.
As for the pot, yes, it can be gross, but I just make sure to sanitize my hands first. Then I tap one finger onto the surface of the foundation, apply to a portion of my face, and blend. The tap will prevent overdosing on product, which can be easy to do with a mousse. When I'm done, I lightly run a sponge over my face to remove any excess product.
This wears extremely well on me. Lasts all day.

this stuff is so gross.
it's in a pot so it's not super handy for on the go or in your make up bag because you SHOULD apply it with a sponge or soemthing other then your dirty hands to prevent bacteria infestation and what not. But i am not a total germaphob so that was just a little extra pet peeve.
the product itself is sooo icky. It feels okay when you put it on- covers easily and smoothly but a few minutes after applying it your face feels super oily and greasy. i used it with out a primer of any sort and could prob. count every little pore on my nose bridge as this whip cream consistancy foundation seemed to fill them up and point them out.
i wore it only twice- both days under 70 degrees in dry heat on my normal non- acne prone face doing minimal activity [ just work and school] and broke out BOTH times BAD [ like 3 new pimples after each experinc which NEVER happens to me] - same thing happened to my best friend ( we bought them BOGO at rite aid) so we tossed em. SUCH a waste.
i think if i wore this when it was hot outside my face would melt off, stain my clothes and make me break out to the extreme.
NEVER EVER again- not even for free. i will stick to the powder.

I've been experimenting with foundations recently. I tried the pot version of this with success, and when I heard they had a liquid version, I was quite excited. I found it at the local store, and found a shade that was a perfect match to me. That's quite hard to do with my skin tone. I think the packaging is genious! The pump gives precision, and it looks quite nice. My first reaction to this stuff: A little goes a very long way! It's also easy to overdo it, and then it becomes very cakey. It gives a lot of coverage, which is good for me, but even the smallest imperfections in skin quality are dramatically enhanced. If not used with extreme caution, this product's results can turn bad.

I did like this product, it looked matte and smooth when applied properly, but it made my sensitive skin break out. I also found that the lightest shade was too dark to my fair skin. Overall it is a good foundation but it can look too heavy if you're not careful.

I LOVE Maybelline and I am now using the Age Re-Wind and LOVE it. I've used lots of other department store and drugstore brands, and always seem to come back to Maybelline. However, a couple of years ago I bought this Dream Matte Mousse, and did use the entire jar, but it was just so-so. I agree with most of the other posts. I also dis-like using anything from a "pot", due to bacteria, so I sued a plastic spatula. The Instant Age Re-Wind liquid foundation however, is beautiful, and it may be for a more mature skin (like mine).

I love this foundation. It was my first one. It doesn't clog my pores, and it helps prevent my face from becoming oily like the liquid foundations. The color Classic Ivory, matches me perfectly.
I apply this with a wedge sponge. This way I don't get the makeup or my face dirty. I also use a brush. I love the little glass jar/pot it comes in, very cute.
Sometimes, if my face is a little dry I apply lotion before putting this on. I use Ponds and add some brown sugar, leave it on my face for 5 -10 minutes, wash it off, then apply the makeup.
I love the feel of the makeup when I apply it. Then when it dries or for finish (?) it is almost powdery. I don't even feel it on my face, as with a liquid foundation it is heavy feeling on my face. I also use Cover Girl Micro minerals powder to set it sometimes. It really helps.

i like this product when my skin is good. it has ok coverage and seems to work best for me if my skin has no breakouts and isnt dry because it doesnt really cover my breakouts, and does show flakes of dry skin. it basically evens out skin tone really well. if you want something thast has minimal coverage, def try this out, as it does have a nice finish on skin which is already looking ok. otherwise, meh.

I adore this foundation!! I have horribly oily skin and I was well on the way to having completely un-coverable pimples and freckles. But this stuff does it all! I started out using it as stage makeup, since it stays on forever, but then I began to use it as regular makeup and it was the best change I've ever made! I used bareminerals for a long time, and my skin always looked cakey and dry (weird with my oily skin, right?). But with matte mousse, it's always natural. The only thing I'd recommend is after applying it, dust finishing powder over and spritz with water or a hydrosol. BLOT dry, don't rub. If you do that, the makeup stays on all day, guaranteed!

Before I discovered the wonderful world of dept store makeup, I used DS makeup. This was truthfully one of the best DS foundations I have ever used (right there w/ infallible). It leaves a really nice matte finish, just as the name says. It is pretty impressive for being a DS foundation. The only downfall is it does not work for dry skin at all! It shows any flakes on your skin, which is why I deducted two lippies.

I am totally editing this review after going through a whole jar of this. I dont' like it. It got cakey and slid off my face. I hated the packaging more and more. It didn't stay- on my face, though it did get on my collar! I still had shine throughout the day. It just did not have any staying power at all, so I'm changing my previous review!
***I really like this product. It goes on light but has good coverage. It's a good deal especially when Ulta has sales. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is the packaging is sort of awkward. I use my fingers right now, but should probably get some makeup sponges....
It has replaced my L'Oreal foundation as a fave...
I tried the liquid and hated it, the Matte Mousse is SO much better!
