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?
