My skin: mature, used-to-be oily, now normal-occasionally dry, some lines, no biggies to hide, but I do like at least medium coverage. I searched up and down for a fdt. for mature skin suitable for my needs. Such a frustrating experience! 90% of said fdts. are too oily (not ALL mature skins are paper dry), too thick and sheer, too thin and sheer, OR too thick and masky, too expensive, colors way off ... you know the drill.
Enter this little gem. The blurb says: "Dream® Radiant Liquid Foundation visibly improves the look of skin, giving you a natural-looking glow you’ll never want to take off. This lightweight foundation, formulated with hyaluronic acid and collagen, hydrates and smoothes skin while delivering a medium coverage foundation finish for the look of plump skin." True! Emphasis on hydration, not lubrication. On me, this spreads beautifully, with or without primer (I use my Morphe sponge, which I like as much, or more, than my BB). Gives me a very decent medium coverage, satiny finish, and does not look cakey, or thick, no sparkles or glitter to speak of. Now I'm a loose powder gal. Usually, I use a good bit of finishing spray (Makeup Revolution Hyaluronic Fixing Spray, and/or L'Oréal True Match Lumi Shake and Glow Dew Mist - LOVE both) to avoid looking like something out of Tales from the Crypt. I still use FS, but much less with this foundation. Lasts quite a bit. After some hours I look satiny, not dry, the fdt. still looks quite fresh, and my lines are not so obvious.
Shade range: Ah ... Yes, just to prove that nothing is totally perfect, I was not thrilled with the shade range. Maybelline's website claims 20 shades, but I went to Walgreens and Ulta and did not find more than 14. I'm light, sometimes light-to-medium, with olive undertones. The colors that were available leaned pink or peach, and those allegedly more in my range were too ashy. So I bought two: 05 Vanilla (very fair) and 60 Sandy Beige (on its own too dark for me). I blend them and get pretty much a perfect match (^_^). It comes with a pump, so pump fans will be pleased. Price is $12.99, which some might find too much for a DS product, but I think it's reasonable.
Conclusion: While I make sure I remind people that not everything works for everyone, I am more than pleased with this foundation. Please, Maybelline, don't discontinue it, or worse, reformulate it. I hope it works for others as well as it worked for me.
