Review for: Classic Ivory more...
Ok SO, I'm definitely not one to spend a lot of money on foundation. I never know what my skin will be doing that day so I am constantly needing variety of what I can put on my face. That being said, Dream Velvet is one of my favorite foundations for when my skin is behaving and not being too oily and annoying.

It's a little bit on the more expensive end for drug store foundation, but it comes out in like a lotion-y mousse texture, so you only need a liiiiiiittle bit to cover your whole face. These tubes can last me a few months easy.

I always have the pale-est of pale skin so I always find myself having ot purchase the lightest of all foundations, and then they give me a weird ghosty-white look. This foundation isn't just light, it also has natural skin tones to it that blend well with my skin and don't leave me looking like the dracula that I am in real life. 

I would highly recommend this foundation to someone with skin more on the dry end of the spectrum. If used with a good setting spray, this foundation will easily give you great coverage all day.

Review for: Porcelain Ivory more...
I actually love the odd, thick texture of this foundation. You've got to work quickly though because it does stick and dry fast. It does leave a super soft, smooth appearance (and even touch). However, shade range is awful. Porcelain ivory was pure pink, and the next one up was pure orange on me. Some lighter neutrals would be great (and I'm sure the shades could be expanded on the other end of the spectrum as well).

I had high hopes for this product but it didn't live up to my expectations. I tried applying it several different ways (with a sponge and with a brush). No matter what way I used the product it seemed to always break up on me half way trough the day and looked terrible. I guess if you are looking for a foundation that you only have to wear for a few hours this is a good one for you.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
I don’t care too much about this foundation. It’ll last all day but it cracks up after a couple of hours. I also wasn’t a huge fan of its blending it looks heavy sinking into my lines. The color was also really off the undertones just didn’t match my skin. However I do like it when I’m going for a more natural look. I will use it on my eyelids as to apply eyeshadow and liner without using this on my entire face. Probably won’t buy this product again.

Review for: Ivory more...
I have kept wanting to love this product but I just can’t. The claims were something about a hydrating matte finish and as someone with dry skin, this instantly sucked me in. This product just looks awful on my skin. It looks so incredibly cakey and I have tried applying it with a brush and a beauty blender but it looks bad every time. Would not recommend.

I recently strayed from my usual face regimen and discovered this product. I think that it needs a bit of work, but provides a good amount of coverage and protection! The texture is easy to favor and the end result is fair. If you don't use the correct brush or amount of the product, which varies, it can look a bit "cakey."

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
This is a great foundation. It offers fantastic coverage, blends incredibly well and you can barely see it on my face! I love the matte look that it offers while still looking natural. I have dark under eye circles and this does a great job at covering them. This is better than some products I have purchased at Sephora.

Review for: Warm Porcelain more...
I’ve tried AT LEAST a dozen high end and drug store foundations in the past year. After an entire drawer of my vanity filled with foundations I was just “meh” over, I finally found the ideal foundation! Maybelline dream velvet! I have very pale combination skin with redness and Wrn porcelain velvet was a thick enough yet light weight foundation with absolute FULL coverage!!!! Best coverage by far even compared to high end costly foundations! I also tend to break out with some other brands but my skin is completely flawless using this foundation EVERYDAY! It covers the pink flushness of my skin and leaves it bright and healthy looking all day long!

Review for: Coconut more...
I love this foundation so much! I was not going to buy it because I thought it was quite pricey for a drug store foundation. However, I got it on sale and I fell in love! This foundation is full coverage without feeling so heavy. The color is a perfect match for me. Although, I wish they had darker tones because my shade cannot be the darkest, considering there are women that are darker than me. This is such a beautiful foundation. It lasts all day!

Is this foundation good for dry skin? is it hydrating?
So I've been debating wether or not I should get this. I've seen good reviews and bad reviews about it. I just want to know does it last all day? Is it comfortable on the skin?
