    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    Disappointed in this one. I've used maybelline's bb cream and foundation stick- love both. I have dry skin, so thought I would like this. Since there is no SPF, I had to wear SPF moisturizer underneath it- gets too greasy, "melts" off, and the matte finish is gone within an hour or two. I did try it without moisturizer. Still, It goes on heavy, gets greasy, and it's gone by 2 pm. I'm going to keep it and try it again this winter, but suspect I'll end up throwing it away.

      I like to try new things when I go to Ulta, and I like most of the things I buy. But this makeup is really thick and heavy, and it looks it on your face. Unfortunately, I'll be returning this.

        I love this product so much. I switch to this one from the mouse foundation. This one is a build able coverage and can best be applied with a damp Beauty blender for more build able and even coverage.

                  Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

                  I had to find a new way to cover my face after Maybelline stopped producing the dream smooth mousse foundation. I decided to try this foundation and was pleasantly surprised that it covers a lot more but still doesn't feel like a mask. It makes my face very smooth and even. It comes out of the tube and looks thick but does go on with a very light feel. I have oily skin so it does get a bit shiny but it's hard for any matte foundation to stay matte on me. Overall, I am pretty impressed with this foundation.

                      While we don't have an exact match for your old favorite, in the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation our top pick is sandy beige 60. But close runner up would be creamy natural 50 and natural beige 75

                      The Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation is available in 12 shades, however, selecting a shade will depend on how dark or light your complexion is. It sounds like you need a warm tone. The only shades we would say are too cool for your skintone are the ivory 15, creamy natural 50 and the pure beige 70.

                      Its a bit of a challenge to compare shades between brands but based on what we see on their website we can narrow it down to 3 shades. In the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation take a look at (from lighter to darker) nude 40, sandy beige 60 and natural beige 75.
