It provided good coverage to any flaws or blemishes on the skin (even though I didn't need it). With other foundations I have used, I realise that most shouldn't be applied with your fingers, as it doesn't blend as well and may become cakey. However, with the Dream Liquid Mousse it still gave a beautiful end result, without becoming cakey.


It's a watery substance, so it spreads over the skin really well. It doesn't dry up quickly either, so there's no rush when applying your foundation :) And true to it's word - it gives a flawless, glowing "airbrushed" finish. It literally brightens up your face and gives it a touch of colour that may not have been present before.


HOWEVER ... sadly, as perfect as it may seem - it does have it's negatives.


For me, after only a month of using it - it's side effects clearly took a toll on my skin. I began to have break outs, or little bumps began to appear on my skin. Before hand, I'd only get one or two pimples every couple of months - and my skin was rather smooth from moisturising everyday.


After using the Dream Liquid Mousse, it became uneven, dry and bumps appeared. So, I stopped using it, as wonderful as it is ):


If I had the chance to buy it again, I wouldn't.

It is a cheap and decent foundation, that gives good coverage and does not break skin out. The color I used was natural ivory and it suits my face well. About one pump, it covers my entire face ( few more if needed for specific area of acne spot/marks) without leaving a mask- look because the color blends in very well.
However, it does wear off in the middle of the day. another dissapointing feature is that it does not help control oil at all.

I wanted to like this product because it seemed so lightweight on my skin, yet the coverage was pretty good (light to medium buildable) for my acne blemishes. It was also a really great match for my skin tone. A few hours later (maybe 2-3), however, I had noticed that the foundation had started to fade. Then the next day, I saw that I had two new pimples that were not there the day before. I had not broken out in a while due to my Clindamycin lotion I use for my acne, and it was NOT a pleasant surprise to see two new zits on my face. I didn't dare try the foundation on again and returned it. No more new breakouts ever since. So long story short, if you have sensitive, acne prone skin, then I would advise you not to try this product because it can cause breakouts.

This is what you would expect from a drugstore (we call them chemists in Australia ;-)) foundation. It is ok borderline pretty average. I used the lightest shade and found it made my skin look very dark - definately not my colour. It also made my skin quite shiny. I didn't like the coverage at all and when I compare it to foundations I do love I can see how inadequate this foundation really is. I think if you had tanned skin and normal skin (not combo, dry or oily) then this would be worth trying. But yeah, I won't be buying this again.

I used this foundation 2 years ago in natural beige, which was my colour in my Revlon make-up (silly me, I thought it was all the same), and the Maybelline liquid foundation made me look really orange, it was terrible. I switched back to Revlon for about 2 years. Recently I ran out of my Revlon foundation, and couldn't afford another bottle, so I went to Big W and used some of the testers on the back of my hand and found the right shade for my skin.
I have fairly pale skin, so it makes me look a little orange when I first apply it, but after about 20 minutes it goes a bit lighter, so it all works out in the end.
It doesn't take much to cover my whole face properly and blend down into my neck, so I can see this bottle lasting quite a while.
One of the things I love the most about this foundation is that my pores are quite big and noticeable, so this foundation covers them really well and it's easy to remove and clean my pores out, so it's really no problem. It doesn't make me break out either! It makes my skin look so flawless.
I'll definitely buy this foundation again, for $17 dollars it's pretty good quality.

Love the way it looks and feels! Just switched to Dream Liquid Mouse... and I must say that I am really enjoying using it. It provides great coverage without feeling like I'm wearing a lot of makeup. Only need 1 pump (the size of a small pea) to cover my entire face. Will definitely buy again.

It gives me reaaly good coverage, but my skin is kind of pail and it turns orange in an hour or so, no matter how light of a shade I go. If your tan though, this is the perfect makeup for you.

i'm still not too sure about this product as i've only just started wearing it but here are my pro's and con's. pro's: inexpensive, love the pump bottle, i absolutely love the coverage as i've got acne, acne scars, dry patches and it covers all of that beautifully and i believe it is buildable, definately an airbrushed finish, so easy and quick to put on and the tiniest amount is needed. con's: in a couple of hours it starts to get shiny and oily looking and not just on my t-zone but everywhere and i'm not sure whether it gives me pimples yet cause i've only just started using it but i haven't notice any new ones just yet. i really like this product but the only reason why i wouldn't purchase it again is because of the way it starts getting shiny so quickly, damn it!

edit: i suspect this has completely broken me out so i'm returning to my estee lauder double wear light foundation.

another edit: gave to my mum to use because i didn't want to throw it out as it was just purchased and she broke out like crazy and she never breaks out so i changed the overall rating to 1 = worst.

I wanted to love this. Oh Dear God, I wanted to love this. The coverage was pretty darn good, it didn't turn me into an oil slick by the time I was halfway to school, It's a drugstore foundation which means I don't have to babysit for eight years to be able to purchase it. And the airbrush finish they claimed? Pretty close, Maybelline, it really was. My pores left the building, and it wouldn't crease or sink into anywhere possible. But alas. It couldn't be perfect, right? That would be far too awesome. Broke me out like it was nobody's business. I refused to believe this was true, and thought 'heck, ANYTHING coulda broke me out with my *amazing* skin' so I waited till things cleared up and used this foundation again. Yeah...my hopes and dreams are broken.
Although, the reason for the three lippies is because if this DOES work for you and somehow does NOT break you out, you'll be sure as heck giving it five lippies. Not repurchasing, sadly, loves.

I found this to be too heavy and strange. Also the medium color was too light for my NC 35 skin tone. Overall, i just didn't like it.
