    my skin has a natural redness to it being a red head so the pinkish color really blends in well and doesn't make my face look like a completely different color than my body like other products.

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      It definitely felt hydrating and smooth on the skin but it doesn't last at all and by the end of the day I had patchy parts and didn't work well for me... it'd probably be fine for a girl with great skin who wanted barely any coverage but for my skin it just wasn't enough to keep me looking good and it enhanced the appearance of my pores. Not for me.

          Was not good for me

          By Taylor

          from Fresno, CA

          Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

          I bought this thinking I would like a matte foundation since I have oily skin but it was not a good match. This foundation provides great coverage with VERY little product but it made my skin look funny (as if I DESPERATELY needed to exfoliate even though my skin was completely smooth). I found that mixing a liquid illuminator with the foundation prior to applying to my face helped a lot but once the weather warmed up I was a shiny mess. Great value for you money though! Even with my daily use I don't think I've used half of the container and I've had it for about six months!

              idk. Part of me likes it. It's light and looks nice after setting with powder and a spray. But for some reason on the front and side of my nose it always looks horrible.

                  Hello there Ivette! Thank you for reaching out to us. In our Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation, the shade Ivory has a neutral undertone and Classic Ivory holds more of a warm undertone. We hope this helps!

              • Q:

                Which shades of the dream velvet are for pink undertones? In the winter and spring I am at my fairest. In the summer and fall I tan a little (without sunscreen I burn). I try to stay out of the sun even with sunscreen on, but I still get a little color. I want to make sure I use the right shade for the seasons with my very fair with pink undertone skin.

                  Hi Rachel! If you are using classic ivory in the FitMe Matte + Poreless, we suggest to look at the shade classic ivory in the Dream Velvet. The formula's for our foundations are different, but the shades should be similar.
