          Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

          I was really excited to buy this after seeing reviews, because I have normal to dry skin. And a hydrating foundation sounded like just what I needed but I was disappointed to find out that it has very little coverage and does not last very long at all. I will be returning it.

            I am very pleased with this product. It is hard for me to find the correct color of foundation and I have found that this product has the perfect fit. I also struggle with dry skin, which makes it even harder to find a decent foundation. This one works great and goes on smooth.

              Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

              I usually splurge and buy expensive foundation by Stila or Benefit, but when I talked to the sales rep at Ulta she recommended this one. She said she used to wear Benefit, but now only buys this soft-matte foundation. I bought it thinking it would be fun to try a new one. As long as they keep making this stuff, I am not going back to the expensive ones. This stuff makes my skin look flawless. It goes on smoothly and it blends perfectly with my skin! It also stays with a matte finish all day long. I did not get shiny or anything, which sometimes happens with other foundations. I would recommend this foundation to EVERYONE! Give it try, you won't be disappointed!!

                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.

                      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.
