I have a list of drugstore and high end products that I really wanted to try and when I went to the drugstore a few days ago I saw that Maybelline is having a buy one get half off on the next one so I purchased the Dream Matte Mousse Foundation together with the Line Stiletto which are both on my list.
I have been wanting to try this one for a long time but every time I go into the store I keep thinking about how many foundations and tinted moisturizers I have and it seemed to be not a good idea to indulge and buy it but I have a really good excuse when I purchased this one! Last week I went on a family vacation to St. Thomas, USVI (all my posts were scheduled that week) and I got really tan and even my summer foundation doesn't seem to match me and I really needed something with light to medium coverage for the season.
I have never gotten my shade wrong with Maybelline products (thank God!) and I am really very happy with this product when I first tried it out. It has very nice texture and consistency. When I first tried it out, the texture really reminded me of chocolate mousse. It blends easily and perfectly to the skin and gives a healthy, flawless looking skin. Though I was looking for a light to medium coverage foundation this product actually gave me a medium to full coverage. I believe this product is ideal for normal to oily skin because it keeps the face matte but even if I have a dry to combination skin this worked pretty well for me.
There are just some things about this product that one have to be careful about. First is the application. Pressing and sweeping the product all over your face is the best method in applying this product however, be careful of putting too much because it will look cakey. Another thing about this foundation is that it is not long lasting and lasts about 4-6 hours only. It does give a matte finish but it won't hold throughout the day so be wary of shine. It is best to keep blotters and or a pressed powder in your makeup bag.
I would definitely recommend this to you ladies who likes to cam whore... it looks great on camera! Your night time and flash photography photos would never look better! I am so loving this product that I think I will purchase this in another shade once I get my natural skin color back. :)
How about you ladies? Have you tried this one? Is it a hit or a miss for you? Let me know your favorite drugstore foundations too!
