          I got tired of pricey foundations and got this on sale BOGO. Really nice coverage, feels lite, like a primer. I am 46 so as long as I exfoliated and moisturize this foundation looks great on me.

            I give this product 4 stars. Although it definitely gives you a matte finish, you do have to be careful with bending since it is mousse. I found a few crumbles as I was dipping my brush into the product and applying it on my face. One layer did cover up my acne scars fairly well. Second layer was much better, but I did not like the way it look when building up on layers. This product did not stay on long for me. Perhaps because my face is extremely oily. I will test it out again in the winter to see if it is the weather plus my oily skin that causes longevity. Be sure to deep clean your face when removing it. I did have a minor breakout.

              Comments about Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation:

              I might be the last one to the party on this lol. I was really surprised! It gives a true matte finish. It has the feeling of a silicone primer, so it goes on nicely. I would not wear a silicone primer under it, but a primer with some tacking to hold onto it. It is very pore minimizing and has great coverage. Blends amazingly. I find it best to dip my brush right in the pot instead of dotting on my face with my finger. I am wearing today and noticing that my cover girl dark circle eraser concealer looks pretty bad on top of it. I should have tried a damp sponge to blend my concealer that may help. If not, I will just Color correct under the foundation and skip concealer. It had enough coverage that I think it will work fine without it. Overall, one of my favorite drugstore foundations.

              If you have areas of dry skin, be sure to moisturize first.

                  I had used this product last year but didn't care for it because I felt it 'stuck' to areas on my skin (even after having applied primer first), and was hard to blend.
                  I gave it a go again yesterday, this time though I made sure to apply moisturizer on my face (instead on primer). This time I found it to be really nice and easy to apply! It gives me a medium coverage. It lasts on me about 9 hours when I'm in an office environment. Outdoors in the heat obviously not as long lasting. But all in all a very nice budget foundation.

I recently ordered this foundation in a natural beige 2.5 and it's too light for my skin tone. I always have trouble matching the correct foundation with my skin tone. I always end of getting something lighter than my skin tone. what do you recommend for my skin type?

                      I love this foundation and have always used Light Ivory / Light 0. I was lucky enough to be able to stock up before the color was discontinued, but now I need a recommendation as to what would be the closest match. I need to avoid pink based colors altogether and use a neutral or yellow based fair option. This is why the Light Ivory / Light 0 was THE BEST. Please help!!!
