      I decided to start getting into more drug store makeup, especially foundation, and this is by far my favorite foundation. it leaves my face so smooth and radiant. I will definitely be reaching for this often. It does last with setting spray too.

      works well with my oily skin. love it!

      By Rosie

      from NY

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      this is my favorite foundation for when I want some extra coverage that looks so flawless. best way I've learned to apply this is first warm it up on the back of my hand, (not even a pea size, the tiniest amount really does go a long way) dot it on my face, buff it in really well with a brush then blend it out with a damp sponge. I have very oily skin and I never have a problem with it :)

      I have only used once. It was too heavy for my liking too much of a matte finish. I had to add a little face oil to soften the finish.

            Hi YaGirlHannah, it is hard for us to recommend a shade when we cannot see you. We suggest bringing your current foundation into Ulta and comparing it to the available Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation shades to find your perfect match!

            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.

            A:

            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.
