Today I will be reviewing one of Maybelline’s newest products….Maybelline’s Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation. Here’s what I think about it. 🙂
Price: I bought this product at my local Walmart for $7-8, but prices vary by location. My local CVS had it for around $10. It contains only .49 oz., but considering it is cheaper than most drugstore foundations and the fact that you should use less, it’s a decent price.
Packaging: This foundation is in a compact-type thing. It’s half clear plastic, half beige plastic. You unscrew the beige part from the clear part to open it and it comes with a sponge that I don’t use.
Consistency: I love the consistency….it’s a cream foundation versus a liquid or powder foundation. Creams are my favorite because I have dry-normal skin. It’s very creamy and has heavy coverage, but it feels so light on the skin.
How I apply it: I think the best way to apply it is with a flat top or a stippling brush. Swirl it in the pan a little, stipple or dot it on your face, and then smooth all over the face, and use a kabuki or another brush to blend it in nicely. I never used the sponge so I can’t say how that works. 🙂
How it worked for me: I love everything about this foundation. It seriously is the greatest foundation I have ever used. It is so light on the skin, but has such great coverage. I have post acne scars that are fading, and with other foundations I still have to use concealer to cover them, but with this one, forget it. The foundation is enough to cover them. Also, I have dry-normal skin, as I mentioned before, so I don’t set it with a powder. I don’t know how well this will work on oily skin though because of the creamy consistency. Although I have acne prone skin, this foundation DID NOT break me out, which is a major plus. 🙂 I LOVE IT!!! I will definitely rebuy it, and I don’t think there’s anything better than this in drugstores. Hope it works as well on you as it did on me.
