Review for: Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, Medium Beige 080 - Pack of 2
I really love this product! It has an airy, whipped feeling to it, both in the jar and on the face. Literally looks like a melty mousse (as in dessert!) I think it feels great on my skin. Even coverage but still looked and felt natural. The only issue I had with it was that it made my T-zone very shiny and oily. I suffer from oily/combination skin and acne, which my particular foundation was supposed to be geared towards. It helped combat the dry and flakiness in some areas, but in the areas that it was supposed to mattify, I still got the "slick" look. I would recommend only using if only skin is not a huge issue for you, OR if you are going to set with powder afterwards. Despite this issue, I still use it along with my loose powder to fight shine. :) Same brand too.

This is one of my favorite foundations at the drugstore! Ive never really been into liquid foundation, except when i was in high school and had perfect skin, so i was excited to find this. I love the mousse texture and the coverage is great. You do have to be careful when applying and only do a little at a time because a little goes a long way and it can get cakey really fast, but if done right it gives a smooth matte finish. The only real con i can say is the packaging and the amount you get. I don't really like the little jar it comes in and even though it only takes a small amount to cover your face I still go threw it really fast and it is one of the more expensive foundations at the drugstore. Even so I do keep repurchasing just not all the time.

I have very sensitive skin & need very good coverage for my scars. The texture is intriguing but falls short on how it actually feels....it runs and rubs right off...doesn't mix well when humidity is high either. It's a bit expensive 8-10$ and doesn't come with much at all. It may work well if you didn't sweat or breakout. I'm not a fan of the glass container or the small amount given for the price...it looks cool but looking cool is a one time sell...to keep a buyer you have to back your products descriptions...I bought to cover up and it's a sad amount for the money. If you have good skin a little might go a long ways but most people buy makeup to cover up imperfections 😞

I've tried this product in two different colors. I have medium brown skin. They have decent variety of shades. I was impressed with that.
This formula is pretty nice. It's a fairly heavy foundation so a little bit goes a long way. It's got a soufflé texture. It is Cakey so you have to be careful when applying it. It's very high coverage. This reminds me of a mix between powder and liquid foundation so for us oily skin girls, that's good. It's nice and creamy but not greasy.
The packaging is cute, the price is right and you can buy it at any drug store or target, Walmart... Ect...

This is a night out type of foundation. I wouldn't wear this every day all day.

This is definitely a "im out of my favorite foundation" foundation tbh lol.
pros to me:
-perfect for coverage
-doesn't need a lot when applying
-blends well

cons to me:
-not great for oily skin
-fallout (especially when applying)

I DEFINITELY say give it a try but you need a really good concealer in my opinion also it last a long time ..its thick! we all have different skin types so It might fit you it might not but you never know till you try!!!

***QUICK TIP: If you don't like the foundation but don't wanna waste it ,mix it with your favorite foundation and you will still have a flawless finish plus extra coverage!!! good luck #beyou!bebelle!

I am not sure why, but it seems like all of the mouse products seem to settle into fine lines and wrinkles on me. I have tried many different products and brand however I always end up seeing the same thing. Also the mouse products dont seem to last long wear wise. I would have to touch my make up, up within 3 hours with these products. The price isn't to bad, but when you are having to apply it every 3 or 4 hours and you are going through a whole container within 2 weeks it is much better just to buy a higher end products that will last longer.

This is an okay foundation. The formula is truly light and soft like a mousse, but I find that it's not very convenient. The glass container must be relied on for brushes and storage, as you can't easily pump it out onto the back of your hand. Yes, you can scoop it out with your finger, but that's a bit messy and annoying. The consistency makes it not go on brushes easily at all. I've noticed that this foundation really dries out my skin, as well. If there are other options, I would suggest getting those instead of this.

This is definitely worth the price in comparison to expensive department store foundations. It does leave a very matte finish and stays on for a long time. The only fault I have with it is that it takes awhile to put on, and a certain technique, as others have pointed out. If you don't, then you might think something is wrong with it, because it will get lumpy and not spread well. I take a small sponge and dab a little at a time. It reminds me of my stage makeup in it's application, but it's definitely not as harsh.

I can not say this enough, I FREAKING LOVE THIS FOUNDATION! This foundation, combined with a fluffy foundation brush, gives you a beautiful airbrushed look that will last all day! It can be easy to use too much of this product and end up with a cake-y look, so remember less is more and only lightly dip your brush into the container to receive flawless coverage. I would say it is medium to heavy coverage, so you can skip to cover-up and jump right to this foundation for a perfect complexion and even skin tone.

This is my everyday foundation. I've used it for a very long time and I really love it. I have very oily but combination skin, and this really helps to mattify and pull everything together. I do also use a mattifying primer before using this foundation and then a setting powder and it stays nice all day. It feels light on my face, not cakey at all. It has really nice coverage and I also feel like it doesnt really clog my pores. I don't break out very often at all. I've suggested this product to friends.
