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 do like this foundation for days I do want light weight makeup or going for more lighter coverage.. it does look a little cakey in some places when you build it up so I try to avoid doing that I just do one layer. The texture is like a thick mouse and give you a natural glow finish, but as you can see in my picture it kind of emphasizes my pores and texture even with a primer.

I love the look of this foundation!  It feels good and helps with moisturizing my face.  Unfortunately, I've been noticing that the classic ivory has too many pink undertones for my skin.  Not sure if I'll get another shade of this foundation or try another one but I love Maybelline's products!

This product is amazing and I would continue buying it however it is also very affordable and it is very easy to find at any local store of your. This is a product that many people don’t think about as a brand to use but people should give things a try because it can really change your way of thinking ☺️ this product is so nice and helps ur skin very much I love their products and makeup 💄

Review for: Nude more...
I have very mixed feelings about this foundation. First, I do like the squeeze bottle it comes it. My first time ever using this I squeezed it thinking it would be A LOT thinner to than it is. This is a very thick foundation.

Personally, I blended it out with both a Beauty Blender and a Real Techniques Buffing Brush and I found it took a lot of work with both methods to blend out completely.

It felt somewhat heavy on my skin, which I did not like.

After I finally get it blended out, set, etc I really did like the finish. On me, it gave medium coverage. I did find throughout the day it did start to separate on my t-zone.

I probably would not recommend this.

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.

Review for: Pure Beige more...
This works well as a concealer, and does a good job at covering redness or skin imperfections, but it rubs off very easily and melts off with any amount of sweat almost immediately. This is the foundation I keep in my bag/desk at work for touch ups. I would never use this for my full face as it is very opaque and not easy to spread.

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?
