Product Spotlight: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

I love this foundation for a number of reasons!  I have tried several high end foundations that don't even compare to this lovely drug store find.  What's nice about it too is the cost.  Typically it probably runs about $10, but with a sale and coupons, you could get it for way less!

I rarely find foundations that give me a good amount of coverage.  I don't necessarily need full coverage, but I want something more than like what a tinted moisturizer provides.  Well, this pretty much does the trick and it doesn't take a whole lot.  Since this comes in a jar, I put it on with my fingers, which I know is a big no-no, but hey, that's what works for me.

The texture is pretty neat too.  It's a light, fluffy, whipped consistency [hence the name mouse....], and so I feel it goes on really nice.

I think this is actually more for oily skin so that's what the matte effect is for, however my skin is pretty normal.  Sometimes I like for my skin to look pretty dewy and this won't really give you that effect without adding products specifically for that.  They have a liquid kind, I believe, that is more for dry skin and so I bet it's not as mattifying, but don't quote me.

So bottom line, I like this a lot because I love the way it covers, it's super blendable, and makes my skin look flawless!  I have heard others mention that it doesn't last long throughout the day and I would say my face looks pretty covered for the most part, but I guess I need to pay attention more.  For drugstore prices, this is the way to go.  I'm about out of this one and am debating on buying the sister kind mentioned above.  I know if it's anything like this, I'm good.

I have also tried lots of other drugstore brands where some are good, some are ok and others just plain stink. 

What about you?  What's your go to foundation?

Thanks for sharing! I love tinted moisturizers, but I do need/want more coverage at times. I'll definitely be checking this out.

I have heard so many great things about this foundation. I'm tring this as soon as I'm finished with mine. Right now I'm using the new Revelon Photo Finish foundation. I look dewy and covered. Most say glowing! I really like it, but I get way oily in the summer so I know I need something more mattifiying.
