Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

This product is good for day to day foundation, but it's not long lasting. If you applied in the morning, you would need to touch up before a night out. It can be oily-feeling too, depending on your skin. However, for the price it's a good buy.

Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

The product said it hydrates your skin so I guess I should've known better since I have very oily skin. It blends and covers well but I've been wearing it in the summer time and by the end of the day my face is so greasy and any little touch from my finger, it rubs right off.

          Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

          I've discovered that most Maybelleine products are better than prestige products (except for eyeshadow - spend more for that). This is the absolute best foundation I've ever found - it covers so well, doesn't cause pimples, and is hydrating so fine lines don't show. (My 2nd favorite foundation is Smashbox's hydrating Studio Skin foundation which is slightly heavier coverage but costs about $30/bottle more). I JUST LOVE THIS MAYBELLEINE FOUNDATION!

            My skin type is combination/dry so I have a very oily T-zone and dry cheeks especially around my mouth where it gets very tight. Would this be a good product for that?
