      I usually will buy higher end products but recently i have found this glory. I first saw it on a beauty channel on you tube and i cannot lie it has proven itself n my array or make up. This is now my everyday foundation conpaired to tart amazon clay. You may need to build it up a littl6w depending on how much coverage you need and may need to blend two of the tones but you cant beat it for the price.

            this foundation by far is the worst one I have ever put on my face! anytime I blend this foundation on my face it doesn't cover a lot and when I blend it together its very clumpy and it starts to come off in little chunks and it makes it look like I have hair on my face. I love maybelline but I am highly disappointed with this product

              I really like this foundation! It works as well as some high-end foundations. It goes on smooth, like a Creasy mousse, then blends nicely in the skin. I love that the color range goes to dark. I have dark skin with olive AND red understands. I do not have to combine this foundation with a lighter or darker color, it matches perfectly! I highly recommend**

              I bought this while waiting for my prestige foundation to ship. Though it went on smoothly and had a nice silly feel within minutes the humidity had it melting off my face (I live in the South). I primed, powdered and used a setting spray. I felt like a greasy mess all day, it even separated on my skin. Low price for low quality foundation

                Had been using tart for the past year, and forgot my foundation when I was on vacation. I didn't want to buy a brand-new bottle of Park foundation so I just bought this. Turns out it works just as well and looks just as good. I would buy this product again and recommend it to others.

                          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.

                          This product is great for skin that is in the normal to oily range. For skin with a tendency to oil breakthrough, we recommend the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation or the Dream Matte Mousse Foundation.
