REVIEW: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation & Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

A while back my boyfriend and I had to go to Walgreens, I knew he wouldn't take long so I ran to the makeup aisle (of course) and quickly looked around. I wanted to try a new foundation and they had a Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off Sale on some of their products, so here is what I got:

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

To be honest I don't have too many Maybelline products, and this is the first foundation of theirs that I have tried. The formula itself is supposed to be a cross between liquid and mousse, and I would say it definitely is. This foundation has a medium coverage with a matte finish. As far as the packaging goes, the bottle has a pump that I absolutely love--it makes it easier to use the right amount and it's just more sanitary.

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

I love using this to set my foundation. This product doesn't make your face look powdery and leaves a nice, flawless finish. The packaging is nice too: it comes with a mirror that makes it easy to use on the go.

For the price, these are worth a shot. The only complaint I have, is that there aren't too many choices of shades in these. In just a couple of months my skin tone will go back to normal and I will need to buy another foundation, so I'm interested in knowing what you all recommend using. Thanks in advance!

  1. Nice review, my sister sometimes use these too.:D
    Beauty. Fashion. Interior Design.
    & Life According to Marie.

  2. Thank you Marie! I really try to keep my reviews short and straight to the point.

  3. I think the best drugstore foundation is Revlon Colourstay. (It's kind of the drugstore equivalent to MAC Studio Fix Fluid, and is a good comparison). If you haven't, I would recommend checking it out when you're looking for a new one :) But it dries really fast so you need to work quickly and in small sections with it, but otherwise its fab.

  4. Thanks so much for letting me know. I'll keep that in mind when I need to buy a new one. :o]

  5. I have to give these a try :)))

    Also jst wanted to let you know that I just did an exclusive post on Chanel's new line of lipglosses debuting this fall :))

  6. Lol, I always sneak my way over to the make up section whenever I'm at the drugstore with the boyfriend, too. : )

    I've heard a lot of positive reviews from their "dream" line so I'm curious to see how it would work for me. I haven't found a good drugstore liquid foundation that works well with my skin. However, I really like LOreal's True Match face powder. It's really nice plus they have a variety of shades so it's easy to find one that matches you.

  7. i agree, that foundation is alright with medium coverage. it's not a favorite of mine - i usually like full coverage. a drugstore foundation that i almost always fall back to is the revlon colorstay foundation.
