Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation

This is another product that I got recently for two dollars. I purchased the one that was in the lightest shade there, but I still had a feeling that it was going to be a little too dark. I was right.

This foundation is too dark for me. I cannot apply it on my face because it just turns me orange. If I use the tiniest bit, it is passable, but it gives me no coverage whatsoever so there is very little point in applying it - after all, isn't that what a foundation is supposed to do, cover?

The fact that it is the wrong colour is rather unfortunate really, because I think it would be perfect otherwise. You only need to use a tiny amount of product, and it goes on perfectly. It's so smooth and gorgeous, and has a wonderful finish on your skin. As the name suggests, it is matte and makes your skin look so smooth and even. I was so disappointed that I couldn't wear it, but I was determined to find a way.

A lot of product rubbed in - when I use it as a bronzer
I use a lot less product

I decided to use it as a bronzer. It is just the right colour for a bronzer, and I am so pleased. It gives me this subtle, lovely glow (but I must be careful to apply a very small amount or else I look like an orange clown). Because it is supposed to be a foundation, it is long lasting and wears for a while. It feels so nice on the skin and as I mentioned before, looks lovely.

I would definitely recommend this wonderful product, just make sure that you get it in the right shade!

I give this product 8 out of 10.


  1. Would you, if you could find your colour, purchase it full price (or closer to regular price) and use it as a foundation?


  2. I sure would, though I probably wouldn't wear it everyday because it is slightly (slightly) heavier than my usual foundation. But yes, I definitely would (that is, if it is not obscenely expensive!)

  3. Im not really a fan of it. Mine seemed to dry up really fast. I liked the coverage but I only used it for a couple weeks and it was already becoming dried up

  4. BeautybyKimi - that is no good, I guess I'll have to see what happens!

  5. I have the blush in a very pretty bright pink color, i love it! Maybeline has some great products!

  6. Maybelline does have some wonderful products! I have been looking at the blush, what shade do you have?
