Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation ~ Review, Swatch & Picture Demo

 Maybelline claims that we'll love Dream Matte Foundation for:
  • Revolutionary whipped formula provides an air – soft, perfect matte finish coverage, with a weightless feel.
  • Color pigments offer superior coverage.
  • Blends effortlessly for a soft, natural – looking, even – toned result


Price: 525 INR for 18g

Look & Feel:


  • Texture: The swatch of the mousse looks like floral foam rather than whipped cream. Nonetheless feels light to touch.
  • Package: Agreed it's the unhygienic glass jar package but still it is cute, sturdy and compact.
  • Fragrance: Odourless
  • Shade: It comes in 6 shades and the shade that matches my skin tone is N*de. Other shades available are
    • Honey Beige
    • Pure Beige
    • Sandy Beige
    • Natural Ivory
    • Classic Ivory


Effects:



  • Moisturizing? Will not provide external moisturizing and aggravates any dry patches/ flakes present on the skin.  So a good moisturizer is always suggestible beneath this foundation.
  • Mattifying? Works well as I noticed that it absorbs any oily residue left behind by a moisturizer. But don't get excited because the matte finish lasts only for 2-3 hours. 
  • Application? It doesn't work well with a brush. I used fingers which does give smooth application but is time consuming. Currently I am using a sponge which is comfortable and covers face & neck in seconds. Only downside of using a sponge is the product wastage.
  • Blending? Blends smoothly into skin without much effort.
  • Lasting Power? In an all AC environment lasts for whole day. Otherwise the brightness lasts for 4 hours.
  • Coverage? Covers light skin imperfections but as claimed it doesn't give a superior coverage. If used on dark circles looks pathetically ashy.
Caution: While wearing this foundation, never ever photograph using a flash as it reflects a whitish cast . Definitely not a night time foundation

Final Note:  Dream Matte Mousse Foundation feels more like a pressed powder than a foundation. For the 'Matte' claim the lasting power is comparatively less and hence not suggestible even for oily skin.  I prefer Lotus Daily Matte Glow to this which comes at a much cheaper price and gives much better results.

  5. This is a complete no no for dry skin, since u really need to moisturize ur face in loads of cream and even then this foundation manages to make u think, shit! i shud have applied more moisturizer. I had bot this jar unknowingly and have whitish cast photos and i feel embarrassed even today. So i use it as a TM now along with moisturizer , so that i can finish the jar. I don't believe in wasting products which i have bot with hard earned money. Pls dont waste ur time, effort or money on this. Totally not worth it.
