There are so many exciting drugstore beauty releases lately, one of them being Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation.
“Maybelline’s Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation is a refreshing gel-whipped foundation that leaves complexion perfected and smooth with a velvety, soft-matte finish while skin stays hydrated for 12 hours.“
This foundation is supposed to be a first hydrating matte foundation that creates 100% velvet-smooth perfection with unique, gel-whipped formula that ‘s ideal for normal to combination skin.
What I love:
-the formula is unique. It’s soft and fluffy and blends like a dream
-even though at first it was difficult to pick a shade, once I blended it into my skin, it looked like a perfect match
– the coverage is really nice- light to medium
-the finish is matte, but not flat- it looks natural and smooth- unlike a lot of matte foundations that tend to accentuate pores and lines
-felt lightweight on my face
- I loved how it gave a natural feel and look
-the claims that this foundation is most suitable for normal to combination skin are spot on
What I don’t love:
-as much as I like this foundation, I don’t feel like it holds up the full 12 hours as it claims. After about seven hours, it starts to wear off.
I really like this foundation. It has a nice coverage, a really nice finish. Now, I know I mentioned, this is not as long-lasting as I had hoped, but it’s a perfect “everyday” foundation.
