Maybelline dream matte mousse

I don't know about you ladies, but the holidays are creeping closer and closer these days - 7 days till Christmas/My Birthday - which means we have no time to waste to find the right makeup for ourselves! Just think of all the photos and maybe videos you'll appear in over the holidays. All the parties to go to. It's now or never to perfect your makeup.

I've come to notice that Maybelline products seem to work good for my skin, and has yet to break me out. Since I haven't really had found my Holy Grail foundation I decided to give this a whirl since if you haven't noticed yet I like whipped foundations best. I find them easier to work with.

I need about medium coverage to cover all my acne scars. This foundation promises medium to full coverage. It comes in tons of shades I think 15 - don't quote me. The foundation comes in a semi-heavy round glass container. I say semi-heavy because it's light compared to Revlon's whipped foundation. (Review here)

When they same mousse foundation they really do mean it. It's dry like hair mousse, but has a little thicker concesentcy. There's a lot of product in the jar. It's super fluffy like. I use surprisingly a little amount and still get full coverage.

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • medium to full coverage
  • not cakey
  • almost airbrush look

Cons:
  • Semi pricey about $10 
  • last 5-7 hours. Not a full day but close enough
  • Not for those with dry skin
  • It's a must to use a primer
VERDICT: I'm in love. I think I found my holy grail foundation. That is until I get bored maybe, maybe not. If you have normal or oily skin this is for you. Just make sure you catch it on sale. I know the drugstores are always having sales on maybelline products. Repurchase. $9.50
