Ok...add me to the list of fans for this new product. I grabbed it on sale at Target last week and have been using it for 4 days now. I have normal, blemish free skin with a touch of pink to my cheeks ( Mom gave me great skin, but the roseacea starts early) This foundation is perfect...I apply with a sponge or a brush and get perfect coverage. The foundation seems to melt into my skin and gives me a flawless,even matte finish! This takes my nice skin and makes it perfect. I agree with other reviewers that have said it takes a minute for this to look good. I let it set for a few minutes before placing anything on top of it. Great product!

After seeing an add at Target for $5.99 I thought I would give this new Dream Matte Mousse foundation a try. Glad I did as I like it very much. I bought Natural Ivory Light #3 hoping that it would not be to dark for my medium fair skin tone. It look a bit to dark in the jar but all of the other colors seems to be way to pink or yellow in the light selections. This color turned out to be perfect and looks very natural on my skin. I have good skin to begin with but this foundation evened out the skin tone very nicely. I am only wearing this under my eyes, on my eyelids and on my nose as I prefer the more dewey look on my cheeks. No need to wear undereye conceler with this product either (at least for me that would be way to much product under the eyes). This little jar will last a long time as only a very small amount is needed. I like the consistancy and the finish of this product and it blends very nicely with no lines.

After spotting this on sale in the CVS ad for $4.99, I came here to look it up and saw some good words. I purchased the nude shade, which is very yellow (a good thing for me). The coverage is flawless and holds up well with my oily skin. At first, it does have an unreal look to it (but that happens a lot with matte foundations, I've found), but it settles and fixes in a few minutes and looks much better. I'm seeing some girls having problems with breaking out after continued use, so I'm going to keep an eye out for that and report my findings.

Like all new makeups, I just had to try this one, especially after reading all the rave reviews. I am pretty light, so I got this in Nude (Light #4) which is on the medium side of light, almost medium. At first, looking at it in the jar, I thought it might be a tad too dark, but it seems perfect on me. The feel of the makeup is light, sort of mousse like and is very similar to Max Factor's new one, Colour Adapt, and L'oreal's version, Cashmere Perfect. Though they all come in different style packaging, MF is a pump, Maybelline's is in a jar, and L'Oreal's is in tube form. I actually like the Maybelline packaging the least, in terms of hygiene and ease of use, you might need a spatula as time goes on. However, the look is really matte and very light on. I just bought this so I will have to see how it wears in the long term. So far, so good, took off one lippie as there is no sunscreen. However, I wear a separate one every day anyway, so that's not a huge deal breaker as far as this makeup goes. Maybelline seems to keep making better and better makeups, but nothing compares to its Wonder Finish in my book, that stuff blows everything else away!

I really want to love this, but I do have a few issues with it. Let me start off by saying that when I first put it on I was shocked by how nice it went on. The coverage was great and it stayed matte most of the day on my very oily skin. However, by the second day it looked a bit flakey, and by day three my skin was one big flake. This was very surprising as I have never had dry skin. Maybe if I used a heavier moisturizer it would be fine, but I think I will just stick to my normal foundation and HG powder (T Le Clerc Banane). I would definitely recommend that you try it though, the coverage is great, it stays matte, and the texture is heavenly.

I must agree with Audrey...I had loved it so, but now after wearing it for 3 days, my skin suddenly sucks & is breaking out SO BADLY. :*( Damn, I was so happy w/ it at first...

The lightest shade (Porcelain Ivory) is a perfect color match for me (Stila 10 Watts, Px Sheer Camellia). The texture is fantastic - soft and feather-light. This product is a pleasure to apply. Coverage is medium-to-full, surprising given how light the product is. Definitely matte, and gives a flawless, airbrushed look (pores have *disappeared*). One caveat - this is not moisturizing or forgiving at ALL, so skin must be well-moisturized before application, or the foundation will really highlight any dry patches.
Love it. Great stuff.

As a user of primarily tinted moisturizers, I took a chance on this product because 1). I can't resist a new foundation and 2). I got it on sale AND had a coupon! Total damage = $2.99 at Target :)I should add that I also have very dry and (ahem) "mature" skin and don't do well with matte foundations usually. Oh...I also have an odd skintone and finding a match is generally the biggest challenge for me.Anyways, I bought Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and pondered the shades for quite awhile. I am about a MAC NC35/Stila D, quite yellow toned and it seemed like the medium range would work...but which one? #2 looked definitely too light, #3 looked too pink and #4 seemed a bit too dark. Hmmmm.I went with #4 and upon opening the pot I thought...oh no. Too dark. But...after blending it out the shade looked fine and wasn't too dark at all.Bigger surprise is that this product didn't make my dry skin look worse, as most matte foundations do. I used a moisturizer first and the result was nice...a smooth finish, easy to blend and not a 'chalky' or 'powdery' look.I do see that other reviewers have different opinions, so it might be that this is really a YMMV type of product. At least it is reasonably priced - quite affordable to take a chance on I think.This certainly won't be elevated to Holy Grail status in my foundation rotation, but it is a nice change of pace for something with a different finish than I normally use, especially on humid summer days when my very emollient tinted moisturizers are just 'too much'.Not a bad product, not spectacular....decent, especially for the price!

There's been a lot of talk about the odd color selection, but the lid of each jar matches the color of the product inside, and in the case of mine, when I opened it up I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was an exact match! I bought the first shade in the medium range, Sandy Beige (I'm MAC nc42 and BB Honey). I spread this on with my fingers around 6 p.m. A little really does go a long way with this stuff. I don't need way to much coverage, so I spread it kind of thin. At first, it kind of sat on my face and looked really unnatural, but within 5 minutes it kind of set and looked totally like flawless skin. It felt really light too. I set it with some powder and left. I come home at around midnight (now!) and it hasn't budged a bit, I never even reapplied any powder. Now, I have nearly invisible pores so I didn't have the problem of it sinking into them, but I did see it collect a little in those little lines you get from smiling. Also, I moisturized before putting it on, so I didn't have the problem of it accentuating flakes or anything like that. My one gripe is that I hate the jar that's wider at the bottom than the opening...what happens when I get down there and I have to dig down on the sides of the jar? Annoying, but a minor gripe for an otherwise great product. Definitely worth a try, in my opinion. (I am NC42 with combination skin with spot breakouts and some acne scars and this did even out my skin very much.)

Well, usually I hate foundations that come in jars (prefer pumps- esp with my sensitive acne prone skin) but had to try this with all the positive reviews.
Anyhow, it looked fake and masklike immediately after I applied it but somehow after a few minutes, it 'settles' and the finish becomes really pretty. It's a tad too matte for my taste though so I highlight with PX magic potion afterwards. Overall, I hate the packaging but the foundation is nice and so far, looks natural in all lighting that I've seen. Oh also, it doesn't budge!
