Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

I know I've written this so many times by now, but I really do not like wearing foundation.  However, sometimes I find I need to.  I wanted this Maybelline foundation after reading about it on Makeup Geek.   
It comes out of the bottle nicely, not too thick or too runny: 

I was really impressed with this foundation!  I've worn it many times and used the Sigma F80, my Hakuhodo, and the Beauty Blender sponge, and every time it applied wonderfully.  I really love that it blends so well, it doesn't look or feel unnatural at all.  I liked that it felt light, but I still felt like it had good coverage.  It didn't dry my face out and it made it look much smoother and more radiant than nothing at all.  I always use a setting powder, either tinted or translucent, but I tried this without also and it performed well.  I didn't have a problem with slipping or changing colour on my face throughout the day. 

My shade is Natural Ivory- Light 3, but I also have a swatch of Light 3.5- Nude Beige, as a reference.  Although it is just the next number up, the shades are not even close. 
And here is me with the foundation on:

The only negative is that here it cost me $20, as opposed to half that in the U.S. but it's still a bargain considering others are $60.  

I really like this, remarkably it has transformed me into a foundation fan!  


  1. Nice review Amalia. I must say I am a fan of this foundation too. I've also read that it's some bloggers Holy Grail foundation

  2. It looks very natural on you! I've tried the Revlon Mousse type one (can't remember the exact name) and I liked it. I usually use mineral foundation, but some days you just need a liquid/mousse! It sucks that it so expensive for you! :/

  3. I always meant to try this and never got around to it! It looks lovely on you. Thanks for the review!

  4. I Love this foundation and I also like the fact that it comes with a pump.Great review.

  5. This is a great foundation. :)
