            Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

            I just used this product the other day. I love experimenting with foundations since I have oily skin and I want to see what will last. Immediately I knew it was going to be bad because I didn't have my right shade even though I picked out the lightest shade. I did mix it with the NYX foundation drops in white, so they helped to lighten up the foundation. When I squeezed it out of the tube, it was unusually thick. I tried blending it out with a brush and a beauty blender. Both did not work at all. Not only did it look super cakey on my face, but it clung to some of my zits and made them look super dry which is strange for a hydrating foundation made for oily skin. Long story short, just don't waste your time and go for something for liquidy unless if you like a really thick consistency.

                this product didn't work for my skin it might be good for other skin types but not oily it collected in my nose crease and melted off my face it gets uncomfortable towards the end of the day and as you use all of the product the coverage gets less and less

                  I bought one for myself and one for my daughter who needed some light stage makeup. It isn't the fullest coverage for covering all blemishes, but it does a great job for something quick when you don't have a lot of time to apply a ton of makeup. I've bought it before and liked it so I bought it this time so I could have one for my purse for moments when I have to run out the door before applying or for quick fixes while on the go!

                    I have used this product before however when I used it before I got it in a darker tone so this time I went with a lighter tone I really like this product it goes on well with a beauty blender and sets well with powder you do have to use a setting spray with it and you do have to you know lightly powder during the day after about 3 to 4 hours but the coverage is really great if you've got sunspots if you've got a little bit of redness and it such as a match but it's not like over-drying so I will definitely be using this product again. I like all the products from this specific line that they make but out of all of the foundation's this is my favorite.

                        This was awful don't waste your money. I took it back. I have oily skin and was looking for a good matte finish and this was definitely not the one. Even with primer and pore filler this junk settles into every pore every line makes you look like an old woman and God forbid you have just a small bit of dry skin...it will draw attention to it like a lit up sign. After a couple hours it started floating on top of the oil on my face. That was with finishing spray too.... I'll go back to my Ulta bb illuminating cream with smashbox halo powder....tad pricey but worth it not looking like an old hag...

                          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?

                            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.

                            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.
