Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse


This is absolutely the best foundation in summer. It is light and airy, with a slight powdery texture. It lasts a very long time and I find I only need to touch up once or twice.

Lovely little product


This product was effective, but not very long-lasting. This product is meant to provide a non-shine foundation finish. It did do successfully, however it rubbed off very easily, which is a nightmare if it gets near your clothes. The packaging is small and convenient. It is quite cute and is perfect to pop into your handbag. It has quite a strong minty smell. It is very light, creamy texture. It smoothes on easily and quickly. This product did work for me, except that it is rubs off very easily. I like how light the texture is and that it spreads easily.

Awesome product but the generic is much cheaper

This foundation provides light to medium coverage, without the option to layer as it can leave your face with a cake-y effect. It is smooth and velvety to apply; an absolute pleasure to do so whether you are doing so with your fingers, a brush or a sponge. The whipped formula really is a dream. The matte effect I feel is only valid for a few hours. For someone with oily skin like myself, I would like it to remain matte a bit longer (I often have to touch-up with some powder at some time in the day).
If you are looking for a cheaper option, you can also look at the essence mousse. I personally see no difference between the two and have started buying the essence one because it is cheaper. The colour range is wider than the essence range. I had the misfortune of buying a colour too dark and have thus started using this product as a contour shade rather than a foundation.
A downside is the shape of the bottle it comes in as it is sometimes difficult to get the last bits of the product from the edges. Overall, I would recommend this product.

I have very oily skin, and matte make-up products are my miracle workers. When I first saw this product, I didn’t hesitate to try it out. It did a great job and left my skin looking matte. I just wish it stayed on the entire day.

So this product has been around for quite some time, but recently I went out to purchase a new tub, so I thought I’d do a quick memory refresh and miniature review so you could go check out this product out if you haven’t already gotten your hands on the product as yet!

So what is the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse?
This amazing foundation is a fluffy mousse foundation, which has a lovely velvet feel on fingertips as well as a elastic feel. Once applied to skin, the mousse foundation becomes absolutely light and dries on skin for a smooth, velvet matte finish, so there’s no powder touch-ups.

Why I love this product?
This product is meant for oily skin, it’s absolutely light and keeps skin looking dewy fresh all day long. In addition, it gives skin a lovely medium coverage so there’s an even skin tone and a beautiful fresh looking face all day.

Product Packaging
This Dream Matte Mousse comes in a small pot with a lid that indicates the colour of the foundation. The pot may look really small, however the product is extremely long-lasting and a pot can last me up to 6 months.

Product Texture
The product has an amazing air mousse feel, which is light, fresh and fluffy. It feels amazing on skin.

How to apply
This foundation is simple to apply with finger tips because its easier to blend, and you won’t require a lot of the product.

Why I recommend this product?
I would recommend this product because its perfect for oily skin, and it leaves skin with amazing finish. The product is also fragrance-free, dermatologically tested, allergy tested and won’t clog pores or irritate skin. It’s perfect if you have sensitive skin! Plus, the product is available in over 16 different shades.
