I have tried lots of makeups mostly liquid types, but have never worn any makeup that works as well as Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse. The texure is very creamy, I apply with the sponge that comes with it, then smooth it out with a makeup brush. After that I add a little loose face powder to help it set. I love the colors and after applied, the finish is perfection. I have never had any breakouts from it. It lasts all day without touchups. It's the perfect makup for me.

I really, really like this foundation, it's is an excellent drugstore buy and has replaced my Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation for the time being. I wear this foundation in the shade 110 Porcelain Ivory which is the lightest shade- it matches the lightness of my skin but has a bit of an unflattering orangey undertone, a problem that I find to be quite common with drugstore foundations. The foundation is very smooth and creamy and jus glides on your skin like a breeze. I have a lot of dry patches and this foundation, whether applied with a brush or a beauty blender, doesn't seem to disrupt them. When I put this foundation on my skin, my skin feels soft and supple and hydrated which are all important in my book. It gives me the most airbrushed finish of just about any foundation and gives a really pretty satin finish which I think looks most natural. I would say that this gives medium- full coverage depending on how you apply it. It if very easy to sheer out if you like less coverage and it layers beautifully if you like more coverage...I've heard of people using this foundation also a as a concealer because of the coverage and enjoying the results. On my skin which is dehydrated and oily, this foundation will last 8-10 hours. Very reasonable wear time and about halfway through that time, I like to powder it just to take away any shine. I wouldn't rate this foundation a 5/5 because one this that really bothers me other than the undertone of the foundation is that when it fades, it fades patchy. Yes it does take a while to fade but if I am having a really, really long day there is really no saving my face past the 10 hour mark. Overall though I do feel that this is an incredible foundation by any standards. I do feel particularly drawn to it because it was the first foundation I had ever purchased for myself a few years back and it really is quite a solid product. I recommend this for all skin types and I think if you try it, you'll love it :)

I really love this foundation. Even though I tend to have an oily t-zone, it's worse to use a drying foundation on oily skin because it will cause it to produce more oil later on as a reverse effect to make up for the moisture loss. Anyways, this foundation is perfect because it feels like you're using a rich cream on your face rather than paint like some other full coverage foundations. I like that I can even use it as a concealer which is what I do on most days if I don't feel like caking on a whole layer of makeup on my face. BecAuse this matches me so well, (I use 240 natural beige) I can use it to conceal just under my eyes or any other little blemishes if I need to and after blending with a face kabuki brush, you can't even tell im wearing it! Aside for some bit of shine, because it is moisturizing, but if you don't like the shine you can always powder it and it looks wonderful. As for lasting power, When topped with a powder over it, lasts a good solid 8 hours most of the time. And with touch ups, it will look nice all day and it easy to add layers to without it looking cakey or blotchy. What I love about it is that you can build up to really full coverage without it looking like too much. Overall, i really enjoy that clean fresh faced look that this cream foundation gives and I've been repurchasing this for along time now probably for 2 years! I use revlon color stay liquid foundation some days which I think lasts longer, but for me is a little too thick and paint-like to use everyday. I dilute it down with moisturizer when I use it but I don't have to do that with the maybelline cream dream mousse.

What a wonder to work with! This foundation is so easy to apply, blends in effortlessly and makes my dry/sensitive skin look great! The coverage is light and it's just the right amount of coverage I need (to hide some pinkiness). I have shade 180 nude beige and I set it with Revlon Nearly Naked Powder (020 light). It's very natural and nobody can tell I'm wearing anything at all on my face. I use it for special occasions. I'm in love with this product and would definitely repurchase!

Bought this in two shades, creamy natural and natural beige. I achieved a good match with both colors.
My skin is dry, very dry and I didn't know how the cream would apply, quite heavy I found. I ended up stippling it on with good results, but it was a matte finish on me with light/medium coverage.
A few hours later I looked in the mirror and my T-zone which only acts up in the warmer months, was a slick, shiny mess! Next day I powdered and didn't like the finish but waited and the same thing happened.
I don't know what kind of skin type would like this but it isn't mine.

I hate to say this but this is possibly one of the best foundations I have found recently for winter. I have normal skin in summer and dry in winter. I ahve a very hard time finding a foundation that is balanced.
I tried this because I was recommended to try a cream one because of my dry skin and how I am getting older. This stuff went on almost full coverage and is very natural looking. The color was a perfect match. I got Classic Ivory and am NW20 in MAC. I have not noticed any oxidation what-so-ever, but rarely have ever had trouble with that in any foundation.
It looks very smooth and feels very lightweight. I have roseacea and it covered it well. I am seriously very impressed with Maybelline lately. I used to hate the brand.
There is a trick to this foundation I found. Dab the sponge on the product, do not push. Dab it on the skin in spots all over and then press it in all over. If you swipe or drag it around it will look cakey and uneven. It sets after about 3 minutes and doesn't move.
I used primer underneath as well and found that works best. I set it with light powder with a light hand.
I am curious now about the other cream foundations as I really like this product. The packing sucks big time on this. The screw lid under the sponge flip lid is annoying. I wish this had a compact design with a mirror, but in all I am so pleased with the actual product I won't complain.

This is not for me! I have a friend who wears it and it looks beautiful. On me however, it looks good for a couple hours, turns orange and then slides off my skin in patches. Needless to say, it's not a good look. :-) For reference, my skin is oily and acne prone. Good luck!

Have been repurchasing this over and over again! I'm in the shade 240 Natural Beige which is perfect for my olive skin. I have applied this with a flattop brush or sponge and both look great. Very moisturizing and feels wet when first applying but that goes away. Only problem is I have to re-powder my nose and chin throughout the day because of how creamy and emollient this foundation is, and it transfers on things badly for me. I hugged someone the other day and I left a tan blob on their white coat! Embarrassing

This isn't a foundation I would wear going out. But, it is really good for those days when you just need a little coverage. What I love them most about this product is that it has really easy acsess to the actual product and you dont have to worry about it spilling all over the place. However, I don't like how I can't warm it up on my hand which I feel helps application. I also like how this is a grab and go formula its really easy to fit in your purse or makeup bag without it taking up a bunch of room. All in all this product has fair coverage it's basically a concealer for when you are having a good skin day. Hope this helps someone decie on whether or not to buy this product.

I actually use this as a concealer. I have oily skin and it's very hard for me to find a cream concealer that doesn't have things that will clog my pores and as a woman of color it's also hard for me to find a concealer that will match my skin and won't make my look ashy. I bought this on clearance at CVS and decided to give it a go since you get a ton of product. IT IS AMAZING!
I am blessed to not have dark circles (yet) but like to still use concealer under my eyes to add contrast to my face and give me a more 'awake' look. This works great. It's creamy enough to blend easily, but not so thick that you feel your pores clogging. I love how this just blends so well into my skin.
Not sure about this as a foundation but as a concealer it is an A++!
