Loved the way this product looked. However, around my eyes and upper lip are now burnt. This product burned a little when applying and after an hour I had a red bumpy burn around my eyes and lips. After 3 days of not wearing makeup, it still burns.

    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    I used this product and my skin reacted terribly to it. It caused bumps to break out all over my skin and tingling/burning. My skin is so sensitive now it hurts to wash it and if it doesn't go away I'm gonna go to the doctors. If my skin hadn't reacted so badly to it I would've liked the product...it went on nice and matched me perfectly. I've never reacted badly to foundation before.

                Hello Melanie! Its very difficult to recommend a shade based on this kind of communication, however based on what we see on the website we can narrow it down to 3 shades. In the shades Sandy Beige, Pure Beige and Creamy Natural.

                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.

              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.

              • 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.
