Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation

Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation - 30ml - $15.99 - in 12 shades: Warm Porcelain, Porcelain Ivory, Ivory, Classic Ivory, Nude, Creamy Natural, Sandy Beige, Pure Beige, Natural Beige, Honey Beige, Caramel and Coconut - with a unique and refreshing gel-whipped formula ideal for normal to combination skin that offers medium coverage that leaves the complexion perfected and smooth with a velvety, soft-matte finish that stays hydrated for up to 12 hours. 

I have combination skin and the formula worked great on me to begin with - my oily bits were less oily and my normal parts felt comfortable - but I only got about 6 hours wear out of it before it started breaking down in the oily areas and I had to reapply to smooth out those areas - the rest of my skin was fine though so I probably wouldn't recommend this for skin that is oily all over but keep it for skin that is normal to lightly combination.

There is a Dream Velvet Blender applicator also available - I haven't tried it so can't give an opinion but from the pictures it looks to be a beauty blender on a handle - which could make it easier to hold on to.

Available now at drug and mass retailers across Canada.

  1. The velvet blender is not good times. It has no give and just sucks up the product. Kind of feels like you're just hitting yourself in the face. My opinion of course, some people love it.

    1. good to know - I'm more of a brush girl myself - although I do sometimes use a sponge during a hot day to smooth foundation out if it starts to migrate!
