 THE VERDICT:

As a lover of all things matte, I'm always on the lookout for new matte foundations, from drugstore to luxury brands; Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation, according to some reviews, is a really good, affordable matte foundation; tried it for myself and true enough, it's really good!


MAYBELLINE DREAM VELVET SOFT MATTE HYDRATING FOUNDATION IN DETAIL

A velvety smooth matte foundation with a hydrating formula that promises to last for up to 12 hours. It comes in 5 shades.

Ingredients

L-R: Sandy Beige, Nude, Natural Beige, Pure Beige, and Honey Beige

Consistency is a soft, mousse; it spreads well and produces an even coverage despite the fact that mousse is quite hard to work with sometimes. It is unscented and yields a medium to full coverage, a first for Maybelline foundations.

MAYBELLINE DREAM VELVET SOFT MATTE HYDRATING FOUNDATION IN ACTION

Bare face

With one layer of the foundation

I used Natural Beige in here, the shade that I think is best for my skin tone; Pure Beige is a good candidate also, but base is quite Pink so I'm saving it for days when my skin is more tan and golden. I use a flat top brush to help the product look more even on the skin. I also do not need to use corrector anymore with this foundation because it has pretty good coverage! Does it have a tendency to cake? I have combination oily-normal skin and I did not experience this; for dry skin, you may need to moisturize prior application because mousse formulas tend to cake on dry skin; my tip for dry- skinned people is use a damp sponge to apply this foundation because water helps soften its texture, allowing it to cling better on the skin.

Natural Beige is a shade lighter than me so I just bronze my skin afterwards. Wear time is great! It lasts for 3 hours before oil begins to seep from my T-zone; it is also comfortable to wear too despite the mousse consistency and doesn't look and feel heavy or cakey at all! 

I'm loving this foundation because it is affordable and it's the first Maybelline liquid base that impressed me; I definitely recommend it if you want a very good yet affordable matte foundation; I just wish that better shades will be offered soon, but overall, it's impressive! Perfect for oily and combination oily/normal skin!

8 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I think this is the reformulated version of their mousse foundation and my perfect match is light beige that looks like my skin. With this updated version I find it difficult to find my shade because Currently I'm somewhat in between sandy beige and natural beige, what I love with this foundation is that I find this more easy to blen.

  2. Finally! I've been waiting for this! Now, I teally have to try it na sonce you already gave it your seal of approval. I'm thinking Sandy Beige or Natural Beige will suit me, hopefully they do come out with more shades.

  5. Wow, naamaze ako sa coverage, maganda pala! The foundation that I always use is from Maybelline, Loreal and Revlon. Hmm, I think this one replaces the mousse foundation (in a jar), I really like that foundation kasi it has nice coverage and it's matte, but katagalan the foundation tends to get dry and namumuo sya, so I think this one is better alternative to that.
