Review: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation

Hey everyone!

I have been testing out Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Powder for the past two months or so, and I have come to some conclusions, chief among them: This might just be my Holy Grail foundation.

I love the texture of this- it’s a mousse, so it feels really smooth and spreads easily on my face. It’s a cream (or mousse?)-to-powder formula, so there isn’t a need to put powder on over this, unless you have a super oily skin type.  It gives my skin a smooth look while mattifying my oily spots.

Another thing I love about this is the coverage it gives. It covers minor blemishes and somewhat cancels out dark circles. For anything else, you will need to apply a concealer. (I have this in Light Nude 4, which is a perfect match for my skin.) Lasting power is also pretty formidable. I wore this for about 8 hours (a little longer than my school day) and there were very minimal oily spots on my forehead only.

Dare I say it? This is my new favorite foundation and my Holy Grail. At least until the next one comes along.

28 August- Unfortunately I deleted my pictures that I took with/without foundation. I will have those up tomorrow, so be sure to check back for those.

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think? What’s your current favorite foundation?



  1. I wish I could love this, but my skin is dry and it exaggerates my dry spots. I like the dream liquid mousse and I like the dream smooth mousse for the first hour it's on.

  2. @PoorCollegeStudent- sorry to hear that! I haven't tried any of the other foundations in this line, but I'm not such a big fan of liquid foundations. :)

  3. Glad it works well for you, i think its a love or hate foundation. I tried to follow you as i just found your blog but my computers being stupid and wont let me :(
