    Do not buy If you have very fair skin!

    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    Don't get me wrong I love the consistency
    and value for this product, but I have bought the 2 lightest shades and they look orange on very pale skin. It really upset me that such a good foundation had such a poor colour selection.

      Best drugstore foundation!

      By Katie

      from Indiana

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      This is hands down one of my favorite drugstore foundations. It goes on so smoothly and has great coverage with little product. Better if stippled first and then swiped over the skin. Covers my pores and acne and wears all day with minimal touch ups. Only thing I have to say is that it is not completely matte but is pretty close. I have oily skin and it works like a dream.

        Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

        This is my favorite foundation right now and I usually buy very high end makeup. Many of my foundations eventually turn reddish on my skin but this one doesn't. I love and recommend it, especially to my friends that are just starting out with makeup.

        Pretty good

        By JuliaBee

        from Texas

        Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

        I have repurchased this foundation multiple times and it really is a great foundation. From the beginning I noticed it gathered around my nose and between my eyebrows but it will look great if you set it with a good powder (I used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless). I recently noticed that it wouldn't cover my forehead as evenly as the rest of my face, which is quite annoying since it was working beautifully before. I'm not quite sure how to fix this issue but I will still say it's a good foundation. You can very easily get it to full coverage. I apply it with a beauty blender. I get it wet the night before, let it dry overnight so in the morning it is slightly damp. I then spray it with a setting spray to make it last a bit longer and apply.

            Hi quantocaliente!

            1. The shade from lightest to darkest is: Warm Porcelain (05), Porcelain Ivory (10), Ivory (15), Classic Ivory (20).
            2. Warm Porcelain has a pink undertone, Porcelain Ivory carries a warm undertone, Ivory carries a warm undertone, and Classic Ivory is more of a neutral undertone.

            We hope this helps!

          Hi! I saw the Dream Velvet Foundation, and I currently use the Fit Me! Matte and Poreless in Natural Ivory 112, and I love it. I would like to ask somequestion(s) about Dream Velvet:

          1. What skin type does this foundation suit (oily and acne-prone, dry, normal, or combination skin)?

          2. What shade of Dream Velvet is the same as Fit Me! Matte and Poreless foundation in Natural Ivory 112?

          3. What is the texture of the foundation?

            A:

            Unlike so many matte foundations, the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation is hydrating, so its ideal for skin that's in the normal to dry range. The shade closest to your old favorite is the ivory 15 and like it says in the name, the result on the skin is a soft matte finish.

          Hi .. I'm a 310 in fit me dewy foundation collection. What shade should I buy from this ?
          Asked on 11/12/2016 by rr from singapore

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Because the finish for the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation is matte vs. the dewy finish you are accustomed to, even a very similar shade can look different. In the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation, take a look at the natural beige 75 and the honey beige 90.
            However, product lines and shades may vary outside of the U.S.

            We don't distinguish the undertones for our shades in the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation, however, the only shades that would be considered to have a cool undertone are the creamy natural 50 and pure beige 70.
