    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    I went in to get a foundation for my wedding and I have only ever used powder foundation. I have oily skin which breaks out very easily. After talking to not of the girls at Ulta she told me what to look for. I used this foundation along with a matte primer and is perfect!! It last all day, goes on really smooth and I don't breakout at all.

          I had to buy 2 shades in order to get one that matched my complexion. It went on smooth and had a very pretty finish. However, after about 3 hours, I looked very oily and shiny, so be sure to have oil blotters at hand.

            After Lancôme discontinued my favorite foundation (Lancôme - TEINT IDOLE FRESH WEAR), I've been looking (and buying-grrr) lots of product. Believe it or not, Maybelline has come up with something almost identical...maybe Lancôme sold the formula after discontinuing?? Anyway, goes on smoothly, very light but excellent coverage. Stays matte for many hours on my oily skin but your results will vary depending on your degree of dryness/oiliness. And the price is truly a bargain compared to what I've been paying!! Worth a try, highly recommend.

                        Finding the best match in a foundation can be a challenge. We suggest taking a look at the Classic Ivory (20) shade. This has cool or pink undertones and is similar to the 115 Ivory.

                      My skin is quite dry. Every foundation I have tried just looks cakey, or flakes my skin no matter how much moisturizer I use after exfoliating. Would this foundation be right for me? I have heard wonderful reviews, but I am not 100% sure if it would fit my dry skin. I really want to find a new foundation with good coverage!

                        This hydrating foundation is ideal for normal to combination skin. For dry skin we would recommend the Dream Liquid Mousse or FitMe Dewy + Smooth Foundation. The Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation has the creamiest texture.
