The shade I picked is very yellow. Needs to be applied sparingly. Can't wait to take it off at the end of the day - too heavy.

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      I found that this works slightly better if you blend it with a brush using oils to smooth, but after a few hours it tends to get very patchy and flakey. I did not hate the product but I have used many other affordable products that I've been more satisfied with.

This Shade Finder will help take the guesswork out of finding your perfect shade. This link will take you to this online tool as well;
