I liked this foundation fairly well, but nothing to get too excited about. I have combination skin that is generally good and clear, but have "ruddiness" and need foundation to even out my skin tone. This one accomplished that, I did not suffer any breakouts from using it, but I have still not found my "holy grail" foundation, and will continue to try others.

Copy-pasted from another Dream Matte review I wrote:

I don't typically wear foundation, since my skin is pretty clear. I usually only get it to balance out my skin tone, so I aim for lighter formulas with good coverage. That is exactly what I've found with this product.
First of all, the texture feels -so nice-. It's light as air and just melts into your skin.. all you have to do is touch your fingertips to the mousse and you've got a good bit of product to work with. The coverage is very satisfactory - it's not so sheer that you have to keep layering and layering, and it's not so thick that you look like you have pancake makeup on. The price isn't too bad, either, considering what you'd pay at a department store.. I think it's somewhere around ten dollars.
Unlike other people, I haven't had any adverse reactions to this. I can't even feel it on my skin unless I put too much on, and it does have a nice, matte finish. I'm very content with this product.

---Edit: Aargh, I was hoping this wouldn't happen, but this product has made me break out slightly. Nothing major - just some tiny bumps. Still, I'll have to start looking for something new :(.

you gals dont know how much i wanted to love this foundation. The texture of it was great, very light weight and give a matte look and keep me oil free for hours. Color Light 4 - NUDE was a perfect color for my super pale yellow skin. And the coverage was soo good! BUT... it broke me out badly :[ yup.. VERY BAD! Took me around 2 weeks to heel from those zit.. grrr

This worked great on me for a few days then I noticed bumps. After a while my skin started feeling greasy and the matte-ifying stuff didnt work anymore. I noticed it has oil in it. I wont be using this agian.

I just can't seem to find a decent foundation. It's almost like my skin gets used to a product after using it for awhile and it stops working. Having said that, this one works well for me, The coverage is great, it evens out my skintone wonderfully. However, I do find that this tends to slip off easily, and makes my t-zone a tad bit oiler than usual. But, I can live with that, since I've not found anything really comparable in a LONG time.

Bought this product because my pregnant skin wasn't responding well to my regular foundation (BE). I am so impressed! No more oilies! Just smooth, matte, clear coverage over my blotchy, break out prone, pregnant face. I love the consistency. And, I guess I lucked out by choosing the perfect color on my first try. I haven't had any trouble with break outs (or, at least, no more than usual) and the coverage lasts and lasts. I will definitely use throughout the remainder of my pregnancy and will see how my non-pregnant (can't wait) face responds. Oh, and the price ($3.50 at KMart during 1/2 price sale) was unbelievable!

I of course had to try this new product that came out...I did not like it...my face is combo with oily tendencies in my t-zone. It sort of just slid around on my face and seemed to rub off with a touch....not for me..went in the garbage..sadly another waste of $10.00. Sorry Maybelline

This is just like EL's Ideal Matte for a fraction of the price, and different packaging. No more EL for me.
Great stuff! Be sure to use moisturizer underneath, though.
