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.

          which undertones does the ivory and classic ivory shades have?

            A:

            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.

            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.
