Review for: Porcelain Ivory more...
So far I've learned to like this foundation not necessarily love it I'm giving it four stars because it has a super great variety of complexions and skin tone colors which porcelain Ivory was the closest to my natural skin tone color that I could find because my face is much more paler than the rest of my skin. First I want to say that it's a pretty decent amount for a 7-ounce little bottle it really does you know allow you to pick the amount you want to apply to your face and being a application bottle and it does swivel for lock and open usage. Now with that being said I do usually like to use a concealer over my blemishes before I apply foundation so I can achieve a smoother airbrushed like it entails look on my face for a Flawless finish. I have noticed that this Foundation does give and leave a dewy look which is good in Winter for a more hydrated look and feel. If you don't like The Dewy look or feel you can easily Pat it with a tissue and it takes care of that issue. I like to apply with my fingertips for a more natural look and setting. I don't necessarily love how much I have to apply for coverage but it does cover what you're trying to hide. I'm sure why this isn't the best foundation for me or for anyone who has the same dry sensitive combination oily skin type as me but it's the best one I found in a drugstore for a decent price in a long time. I do recommend this foundation for quick easy on the night spot go out cover-ups I wouldn't recommend it for a full face Foundation coverage and less your more into the heavyweight makeup look. Also be careful when hugging and kissing your loved one this makeup is transparent if you do not use a setting powder. All in all I feel that this makeup did Justice for what I needed that moment this isn't something I would recommend for long-term use or future use if I do find a better product I will review it so all together my analysis is I don't necessarily hate this Foundation but it's not my all-time favorite yet

Review for: Nude Beige more...
I found out about this foundation from a MUA on instagram! I, myself, have been using it for a couple months now! I have combination skin, and it's very hard for me to find a foundation that stays on and gives me the right amount of coverage. I was praying  that this would finally be my match! I really love that it is very lightweight, and doesn't have that "cakey" feel or look. However, I wish the coverage was a little bit better! I have red areas on my face that I try to hide, and even with using corrective concealers (green) before applying the foundation, I can still see the red areas on my face! Would I purchase this again? Probably not. It is not the right fit for me! But would I recommend this product? Absolutely! If you are someone that needs little coverage, and likes a lightweight, moisturizing foundation, this is perfect for you!

Review for: Natural Ivory more...
This used to be the ONLY foundation that I would use. However, as I've gotten older and my skin has changed and become more dry I can't use it except during the Summers. I love the coverage that this foundation gives and the airbrushed look it gives as well... however if you have ANY dry spots it definitely will accentuate those areas. I typically will mix this foundation with a lumi foundation for more coverage and also so it doesn't accentuate those dry spots. However, if you have more normal to oily skin I would highly recommend this foundation. But if you have combination to dry skin I would recommend either using only during the summer or mixing with a lumi foundation.

This foundation was okay. I wasnt too impressed by it. It was okay as soon as i put it on, but once it got later into my work day it started to make my face greasy and my nose super shiny and the foundation kind of cracked on the top of my nose as well. I'd say its a good foundation if you're only going to the store but i wouldnt recommend it for a night out. One good thing about it is that it didnt feel heavy on my skin and despite making it greasy which my face doesn't tend to be, it didnt make me breakout.

I constantly get complements on how “clear” and “flawless” my skin is. I am always shocked when these compliments come my way because I suffer from rosacea and my skin is SO red! Maybelline Dream Liquid® Mousse Foundation is the only foundation I have found to mask my blemishes, go on smooth, never looks caked on, and it is so affordable!

Review for: Porcelain Ivory more...
I’m going to start this by saying that I have incredibly dry skin. I’m always looking for drugstore foundations that will provide good coverage without drying out my skin. So far, I think Dream Mousse Liquid Foundation is the best drugstore foundation I’ve found under $10. The coverage is pretty good, it helps cover the redness of my skin that I have due to irritation. It has a slightly dewy finish which is great to counter the dry appearance of my skin. My only problem is that this is the lightest shade I could find and it still is too pink for me 😭 So unfortunately I have to mix in porcelain concealers over a lot of my face. So if you have fair skin, this foundation might not be the best option for you, but if you’re a bit tanner than I am and also have dry skin I would totally recommend this product!

I SWEAR by this product. I have really bad acne and redness on my face but this foundation evens out my skin tone and has such amazing coverage. It is thick but doesn't feel thick on your face at all. I do have to reapply but as a college student I have long days. It will usually last me all throughout my classes and work. I usually just reapply if I'm going out that night.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
I bought this foundation at Walmart to use while I figure out which full coverage foundation I wanted to buy at Sephora and I was in desperate need of foundation. This overall has I would say a medium coverage it does still allow some spots to poke through however it does last all day and works amazing for being seven bucks at Walmart I would definitely purchase again

One of my favorite drugstore foundations, I've tried most of them and I've found this one to be the best. Gives my skin and nice almost airbrushed look and has great medium to full coverage. It's also thick but doesn't feel thick or heavy on the face. If you're looking for a good drugstore foundation, I would recommend this one, plus, it comes at such a great price.

El producto es bueno lo único que al colocarlo se siente aceitoso pero luego de un tiempo se siente con una textura suave. Me gusta pero no para el diario. Se oxida un poco. Lo utilizo más para la época de invierno. Utilice este producto en unos de mis videos por YouTube: Ruby Batista
