    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    Being African-American, I usually only buy high end foundation because the drugstore retailers seem to think we're all the same shade of black. I bought this on a whim--just to try it. I had never heard of it but I wanted something small to travel with. NOT ONLY does it match my skin tone EXACTLY, it doesn't break me out (like the Fit Me Foundation.) I'm still going to buy high end for special occasions (e.g. going out, weddings) but I love that I can find something for everyday--for under $10--at the drugstore. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      This is my Holy Grail foundation. I have very sensetive, combo and acne prone skin. I've been searching for a year for a product to help cover my acne marks and mattify my skin. I've tried other drugstore to high-end luxury items. From skin tints, tinted moisturizers and light to full coverage foundations. This is the only product that worked.
      This product goes on smooth and dries down to a beautiful power like finish. This has medium coverage with just one application. It covered my inflamed acne like a dream. There is a very faint orange creamsicle smell to the product which I like, that fades quickly upon application. I applied this product with my fingers and it blends so smoothly.
      This product will not settle into your pores or make your fine lines look bigger. It gave my face a flawless finish. I will repurchase and do recommend this product.

        My absolute favorite product. A little goes a long way and though it seems thick, it is actually incredibly lightweight once applied. Great even coverage and perfect formula for combination skin. It does not dry me out or make my complexion oily.

            • 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.
