I'm glad I held off on writing this review. When I first started using it, it was great. I was afraid I'd gotten a shade that was too dark but it blended perfectly with my skin and actually didn't turn me orange like many of the other reviewers said. The problem is, it DID make me break out. After a week of using it, I realized three pimples had popped up and I normally never get pimples. The way the product feels is really nice and I wish I could get it again, but I'm not going to keep using a product that makes me break out after five days.

I gave Dream Matte foundation four lippies. I bought the caramel shade. This foundation covered my blemishes and it gave me a "clean" look. Didn't need powder...I just dabbed some on my nose for good measure. I have used dream matte twice. I chose two settings: a casual workshop and my job The foundation was good to go at the workshop! No shine! At the end of my workday the next day I was a little shiny, but I could live with it. All I needed was to use a tissue or a blot paper (sic). I took away one lippie due to the clumsy packaging! I'll keep you guys posted:>)

I got mine in Nude (Light 4) and it was too orangey and dark. I thought it would be yellow. It's hard to tell if it covered my imperfections because of the color. But i do love the silicone texture. I want to try Loreal's cashmere next to see if i can find any good color matches. Maybe i should try this foundation again in a lighter color but i don't think there are any light-yellowish shades. if there is a light (not too pale) yellowish shade, please contact me. Edit: I exchanged mine for Light 3 because someone on MUA who was Jane Buffy said it matched her perfectly. Amazingly it does! It's not pink at all, in fact it's yellow based. It's amazing that i found two drugstore foundations that are totally different that match my skin tone!

I wanted to wait until I'd used this product for awhile before I reviewed it simply because if I had reviewed it right after I first applied it, I might have been too positive. So, I've been using this for a few weeks now, and I still only remove one lippie. This product does for my skin what I had wished Bare Escentuals would do. I use it in the same way. I have 2 shades of it: One in the porcelain and one in the next lightest shade. As a PPP, the second lightest shade looked a bit dark for me, but since I apply it with my big, fluffy Sonia Kashuk powder brush all over my face, it really does blend in well. I then use my Sonia Kashuk contour brush and use the porcelain under my eyes and on my browbone (concealer, highlighter) This is exactly how I used the Bare Escentuals, only I get better and longer lasting coverage. I do find that I have to take a powder to my oily nose late in the afternoon, but that's not half bad. This is, by far, the best drugstore foundation that I have used and I have been on a high-end foundation quest for years now. The only reason why I removed a lippie is that the lovely, glowy yet matte finish doesn't last all day. For the way I use it, the packaging is perfect. I truly hope that they don't discontinue it any time soon. Maybelline...who'd of thunk it?

This foundation is great for someone wanting a deeper coverage. And it did stay matte all day. However, I wear a Stila 20 Watts and the lightest shade of the Dream Matte Mousse was still too dark and orange for me. Unfortunately I've found I get the best range of shades for me in department store foundations.

At first, I liked this product, but throughout the day, it started to make my skin feel kind of greasy. I kept using it for a week and finally got the application down, and it looked great all day! BUT, it started breaking me out!! Why me!? As soon as I find something I like, it decides it doesn't like me! Oh and the packaging stinks...I didn't like the idea of dipping my fingers in my foundation, but I invented my own technique that some of you can use. I dip a small amount out of the container with a clean cotten pad each time I use it. the only thing that it comes in contact with is a clean cotten pad. Just be careful not to use a cotten ball b/c it can leave some strings of cotten in there, yuck. That technique seemed to work for me and I avoided using my fingers to dispense my makeup. Hope this helps those of you concerned with this problem. : )

For someone who is never a Maybelline foundation fan, I surely do love this foundation a lot. I got the #4 color Nude. The texture is very light, you don't really feel that you are actually wearing foundation. Coverage is good, you can build it from medium to full coverage. A little last forever. However I have to take one lippie off, because it does not has any SPF at all. So I can only use this foundation during night, or when I'm mostly indoor. Plus, my nose started to get a bit oily within 3 - 4 hrs. But overall, it looks very natural. The correct way to apply it is use a foundation brush. And you should brush the face a couple of time more (without the foundation) to make sure all of the foundation are even, and settle on your skin. So you won't have the feelings like the foundation are just sitting on your face.I will buy this again if I ever finish mine (or if it is on sale again since I got mine on sale for only $3)EDIT - (Nov 9, 04) All of a sudden, this thing broke me out BADLY. I stopped to use it for 2 weeks, all acne cleared. Then I gave it a try for just a 2 hours hang out... it broke me out again horribly in 3 days!! (i'm still recovering from it! grr) I really wanted to like this sooo bad since it has very good coverage, but gawd.. i can't deal with those breakout!

Originally purchased this at Wally World in tan. I went back out and purchased it in honey beige and mixed the two in order to achieve the right color mix. This was one product that I just had to have (after hearing so much about it). I tried it on immediately when I got it but you have to take into consideration I was wearing the day on my face (grime, oil, morning foundation, etc) and it pulled when I put it on.I used it this morning on fresh cleansed skin and while it takes a minute to get use to the texture (mousse/souffle). It is difficult to use just the right amount - too much and you look terrible (think pancake)and too little...nothing. I finally got the portions right and used it a very small amount to cover my entire face. It doesn't sink in the way I would like it to but it doesn't feel as if it is just sitting on my face. It blends well and that is a plus but something is missing.

I love this product. The finish it gives is lovely and texture is wonderful to touch and blend. It stays put and does not rub off. I use the lightest shade and it looks terrific.
