      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      I have used several foundations hoping for one that is smoothing for 40+ skin. UD, Tarte, love Mabelline line though. I have used this for only a few days and have had several people compliment how nice my skin looks and how I seem to have more of a 'glow'.
      A tiny dab on your fingertips, then spread gently...lasts, great medium coverage, decent color, selection could be better. Yes, will keep this on hand for sure. Hope it can stand up to humid Atlanta summers though.

        Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

        I love this product with all my heart. It's the perfect mix between matte and luminous, whereas "luminating" foundations tend to be greasy and not last long on me. I apply it by tapping it on and blending lightly with my fingers after first moisturizing and then using Almay's color-correcting primer. I think those two steps may help it blend and last longer. Guys, if you're applying this, as with virtually any foundation, over bare, dry, flaky skin, you're going to get dry flaky caky foundation.

        The porcelain ivory is the perfect match for my fair skin with slightly pink undertones. I'm very happy. For every day, I can wear this foundation with a little blush and mascara and I look fresh and pretty, not overdone. Maybe a little highlighter and more eye makeup and lip color for when I want to look more made up.

              • Q:

                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.
