I have mild acne and as a highschool girl, I want to cover it up! This product does cover it and has a natural look to it. I love it and for 10 bucks I think it is worth its price but there isnt much product in the package with is a slight bummer but other than I like it :)

I use the 350 honey beige as a 'cream blush/bronzer'.
The texture is very creamy, moist, and smooth. Very easy to blend into my skin and leaves a really nice moisturized dewy look on my cheek bones.

I took off a star because this foundation is no "mousse." We all know mousse when we see it (think Max Factors discontinued mousse); this isn't it. I wouldn't even call it a "cream."
However, for the money, it's pretty good, though I had to use moisturizer on my face first. It glides on easily, and lasts longer than I thought it would. I'll pick it up again, if I don't first find another replacement for the Max Factor liquid (which I used when the whipped cream mousse was discontinued long ago), which was creamy and unlike any of the drying liquids available today. I should have stocked up on that like a previous reviewer did!

Sweet and Short: I like it and I would repurchase
The Nitty Gritty: This foundation is actually really great. I have old acne spots and this does a great job of covering them without making my face look cakey or too made up. I'd say it could be built up to a medium amount of coverage, maybe even a bit more. I myself have oily skin and this didn't make me look any oiler, but I do find that it tends to wear off at the end of the day. It has like a four hour max wear time (with powder it'd last much longer). But this hasn't made me break out and that's a win within itself because my skin can be super finicky and sensitive.
I normally apply it with my hands because I don't like to fuss with makeup brushes unless absolutely necessary and it goes on great, not looking streaky at all. But when I do decide to look my best I like to put this on with a damp sponge like a Beauty Blender or something like that and it makes my skin look uber flawless. It's just great. And the color Natural Beige also matches my skin perfectly so that's a plus, but that's just lucky because there aren't very many shades in the Dream Smooth Mousse line so it could be a bit tricky trying to find your color.
Some people like to compare it to the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup but they are so freakin' different it's not even funny. Revlon's is a lot more 'liquidy' and cannot stay in a solid shape and it's also much more unforgiving on oily skin than the Maybelline Dream Smooth. And Revlon's Whipped Creme doesn't have as much coverage as the Maybelline one.
Overall, I really do like this foundation and it's something that I will and have repurchased many times. It's not nearly as expensive as some other foundations out there and I like the way it feels and looks so I'd say that this is one of my makeup bag staples.

It's okay I guess. It's so wet and sticky so it seems like I need to put powder on after RIGHT AWAY. I think it also clogged my pores. Either that or my new face wash that I got the same day. (I'm not acne prone AT ALL) It does have very good coverage though!! Not much comes in the package though. I feel like they should have used more space instead of adding that sponge they put with it. I don't really care for it and it seems like a lot of other people don't too. I just dip my beauty blender in it and use that. I think I will invest my money in something that I really like cause I'm sure there's plenty of other good ones that are they same price.

My go to foundation every time! I keep thinking that I should probably venture out and see what other foundations are out there, but I cant! I LOVE this foundation! I have combination skin with much redness and a few break outs, and this covers it all! The coverage is amazing! A little goes a long way and I recommend applying this on with a stippling brush. That is what I have found to be the best, but do whatever works for you. I bought this with hesitation because it was a mousse, but it did not let me down. Dont get discouraged by the product's texture. I like it because it is very quick and easy to apply, and as college student who unfortunately got stuck with some 8am classes, this was a perfect addition to my quick make-up routine (and it made me appear more awake). If you are looking for a flawless foundation this is it!
*I just want to note that I have not broken out with this product during the 2-3 years I have used it, and I also set mines with a powder. *

I have good skin and I keep it very clean and acne free but I decided I needed something for more even skin tone. I decided to venture out and purchase this foundation in Porcelain Ivory and l love it. The colour is perfect for my skin tone and now I look less blotchy (which is awesome!).
I actually like the packaging because of the spot in which to put the foam sponge.
I would definitely purchase this again.

Well I am a young girl and need to get ready in under 5 minutes in the morning. This is perfect for me! Takes about 2 minutes to slap on the foundation and add a bit of powder and you are good to go! Great coverage, buildable, great consistency and just an all in one. I bought this on special once and cannot find it on special again :( But luckily i bought 3 of these buggers! Used on a daily 5 day a week process, It managed to last me about 4 months.. Pretty good considering how much I used and price and etc . So silky smooth i love it. Packaging is anoying to fumble with though

I actually don't care for this product as a foundation for my face as I can't find a good color match - but I LOVE it as a product to even out the skin tone on my chest. I am not consistent in my use of sunscreen on this area and so my skin is red, freckled and uneven. Each morning, after moisturizing (and sunscreen 75% of the time), I simply pat this foundation onto that area and it evens out the skin tone beautifully.

I liked the concept of the "mousse" and the texture, which bothers many other reviewers, is just fine by me. However, the color is awful! I tried for the lightest shade I could find, and it is both too dark and too yellow in tone. I have fair skin and red hair and it looks awful. Won't be trying this again.
