I get pretty excited when I see new foundations out at the drugstore. I want to try them all! I saw this new Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation at Target and I've been trying it out for a few weeks and I'm ready to share my thoughts!
This foundation is getting a lot of excitement because it's suppose to be both matte and hydrating which I don't think is offered in a lot of foundations. For someone with oily skin but gets a little dry during winter time, this foundation sounds like a dream right?
About this foundation
From Maybelline's website
The formula is thick. It blends out okay. I definitely do not agree with their 12 hour claims. I don't find this foundation long lasting at all- even with a primer, setting powder, and setting spray. The coverage is medium like it claims, but I didn't find it covered much redness or blemishes on my skin. I've found that most of the 'dream' line from Maybelline foundations have broke my skin out in the past, but I've heard that removed the ingredient that was in there for this foundation. I did have some breakouts on my face while using this so I'm not sure if this was that cause.
Bottom line, this is just can okay foundation for me. I wouldn't repurchase it, and I'm not sure how much I'll reach for it. I'm pretty sure I paid $8.99 for it like I said, but I don't think it's worth the $10.99 that in finding it online for.
