Product Review: Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish Foundation
Hello everyone! I will be reviewing a liquid foundation today. The product I will review is the: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish foundation in the shade 90 Honey Beige.
Cost: Between $6-$9 each depending on where you buy it, so it is an inexpensive foundation.
The newest updated version of this foundation is the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation + Hydrating Serum. This new version is formulated with hyaluronic acid to keep your skin moisturized all day for 12 or 16 hours.
The brand promises that this foundation will give you a completely poreless, smooth, airbrushed finish; it is suppose to be lightweight and a breathable foundation; it is suppose to last on the skin for 16 hours; it is suppose to be cake-free, full coverage, moisturize your skin all day, and be safe for sensitive skin.
Ingredients: This foundation has a small ingredient list of 15 ingredients, including glycerin. This small ingredient list is awesome and I give Maybelline a great big thumbs up 👍 for it. When a product is organic or natural, the more ingredients the better, but when a product is not organic or natural, a smaller ingredient list is better because people are less likely to have a negative reaction to it or be sensitive to it, so I consider this small ingredient list a huge benefit for this foundation.
Swatch: This foundation is too light for my skin in the summer ☀ when I am darker, but in the winter time ⛄ when my skin is lighter, it matches nicely.
Shade Range: This foundation has a decent shade range, but it is definitely not an ethnic-friendly foundation, since there are 12 shades, and only 3 will suit women with darker more tan skin tones like mine, so this is a negative to this foundation. You need more of a balanced shade range Maybelline. You are losing a lot of money by limiting yourself to mostly just light-skinned women 😣
I do feel that this foundation fulfills almost all of its promises. It did:
1. Hide my pores
2. Give me a smooth, airbrushed finish
3. Feel lightweight and was breathable
4. Last on my skin for hours. I wore this foundation for over 9 hours and it held up nicely; it did not fade off of my face throughout the day, even though I did not set it with powder. So even though I did not wear it for 16 hours, I do believe it will last that long since it stayed in place the entire time I wore it.
5. Not cake
6. Make my skin look moisturized
7. Not bother my skin, even though I have very sensitive skin, so I do feel that it is safe for sensitive skin.
My Skin Type: I had normal skin since I was a child, but recently it has become oily
Oily: No, it did not look oily on my skin.
Dark Circles: This foundation did reduce the appearance of the dark circles under my eyes 👀, but not as much as other products I have tried, so you will still need to wear concealer in the under eye area with this foundation.
Scent: It does not have a perfume scent; it just has that typical clay smell that most foundations have.
Lines/Under Eye: The lines under my eyes were still noticeable in the under eye area even while wearing this foundation, but it did seem to moisturize this area and reduce the appearance of them. This foundation did not settle into my smile lines either.
Final Thoughts: This Is one of my favorite foundations because I absolutely love the finish. It makes my skin look so perfect, smooth, and airbrushed. The finish looks natural too, instead of like a mask. During the wintertime when my skin color matches this foundation, you can't tell that I am wearing foundation; it just looks that natural and blends in well. When I wear this foundation, I often get compliments on my skin.
I do recommend setting this foundation with powder when you wear it, because where I touched my face, the foundation did come off, so setting it in place with powder will help prevent this.
Lastly, even though this is a lightweight foundation on the skin, it is a thick consistency, so I did have issues with the foundation clogging the pump. The pump no longer works for me, so I have to take off the pump and put the foundation on my hand in order to get the product out.
All-in-all, I honestly love this foundation. I love the way it looks and feels on my skin. I do wear this foundation several times a week, so I do feel that this is a good quality foundation and I do recommend it.
