I love this foundation
Skip first three paragraphs if you want to start with reading the review
After a long search and trying dozens of foundations and facing some failures like It Cosmetics CC Cream Your Skin but Better,Estee Lauder Double Wear, Loreal True Match,Loreal Infallible Stay Fresh 24H,Milani,Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define,WetnWild Photofocus and ... and buying some average ones I finally came across a couple of foundations that look nice on my dry-combo,dehydrated skin and I love them like:
Bobby Brown Moisture Rich(have it in shade 2.5/Warm Sand a bit too dark for me but still manages to look good) which I love so much that I can call my HG foundation..I also love Mac Face and Body(shade C1)..and as my special occasions,full coverage foundation I have Huda Beauty Faux Filter(shade 140G) and kind of like it
Among drugstore brands I like most Bourjois foundations like Healthy Mix Foundation(shade 51),Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation(shade 52),City Radiance(lightest shade),123 CC Cream(lightest shade)..I also like Catrice HD Coverage(shade 010) and love Rimmel BB Cream the one with blue cap(shade Light)
I thought it's the time to stop buying new foundations at least until I go through and finish some of the ones I already had.but my husband dropped my Catrice HD Coverage when he wanted to pick up his perfume from the vanity and broke it to pieces.he thought I'm going to be mad so he rushed to buy another one and replace it before I notice.he wasn't able to find that one so asked the seller to give him a foundation good for fair-light,dry,sensitive skin.he came back home with a bottle of Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid in shade 10/Ivory
I like it's packaging.it's bottle looks good and I like that it has pump and doesn't become dirty easily.it's perfumed but I don't mind it as it smells lovely and not overpowering and doesn't break me out.it's texture isn't thick but it's not runny and very liquidy/watery like some other foundations either.it has a moisturizing texture without being heavy or greasy,I believe it really contains a hydrating serum. it blends easily and melts in skin beautifully no matter I use my fingers,Beauty Blender sponge or brush.
Coverage is a high medium,more than most of my other foundations which have sheer to medium coverage but nowhere near full cover ones.it's still more than enough to even out my skin and make it look smooth and flawless.it has a lovely luminous finish,like a velvety,matte dewy if it makes any sense!
It doesn't look cakey or heavy,doesn't cling to dry patches and doesn't exagerate pores or fine lines.what makes me love it even more is that it doesn't look patchy or greasy at the end of the day.it stays pretty unchanged after hours.I usually don't use a primer with it.just a light moisturizer as base but after applying it,I powder my nose,forehead and under eyes so I don't how it lasts without powdering
Shade 10 is light but doesn't make me look like a ghost;however it has a bit of peachy undertone,I can call it a good match and it looks nice and natural on me
All in all I'm very impressed.Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation has everything I want from a foundation: medium coverage,natural skinlike look and a satiny finish,very good longevity,a hydrating formula,reasonable price,being able to find a decent color match and not messing up with my skin
Honestly I can't think of any Cons here.oh except that if shade 10 is the lightest shade,it may be too dark for super fair skins.
