Was not good for me

By Taylor

from Fresno, CA

Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

I bought this thinking I would like a matte foundation since I have oily skin but it was not a good match. This foundation provides great coverage with VERY little product but it made my skin look funny (as if I DESPERATELY needed to exfoliate even though my skin was completely smooth). I found that mixing a liquid illuminator with the foundation prior to applying to my face helped a lot but once the weather warmed up I was a shiny mess. Great value for you money though! Even with my daily use I don't think I've used half of the container and I've had it for about six months!

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      idk. Part of me likes it. It's light and looks nice after setting with powder and a spray. But for some reason on the front and side of my nose it always looks horrible.

            Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

            Usually I am willing to splurge on expensive brands but this product is unbelievably great for the price. I have fair skin that is prone to break-outs, and this foundation does not irritate my skin. I use it daily with full coverage and have no issues. Solid coverage, not transparent, and am able to apply without even using a brush or blender brush.

                  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.
