    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    I have been looking for a light weight foundation that didn't get oily as the day went on. And this one is perfect! I love it. I did break out the next day after using but i usually do when i try a new face product. Break out wasn't to bad. Just a little pimple.

    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    It has a very nice feel to it and is full coverage. A little definitely goes a long way with this foundation. Although, if I don't set my face with setting spray or bake my face- then it starts too look cakey. Personally I prefer Wet N' Wild's foundation.

    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    I like that it's smooth and creamy but this is not a good foundation for me.. it caked on my face and wouldn't blend so I looked old.

        Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

        I have used more expensive products in the past (in the $40 range) such as CC cream, which was oily and had shine throughout the day. I am 45 and have very oily skin; this Maybelline Velvet, along with translucent powder, controls shine ALL day. I don't even have to reapply powder foundation. It's lightweight so you don't even know you're wearing anything. Before you go out and spend money on the higher end products, give this one a try!

          I loved the color of this product. I'm very fair, and it can be hard to find a drugstore product that is light enough - this was a fantastic color! I wish that it worked for me. I broke out by the 2nd day of wearing it, wasn't happy with the texture it left on my skin, and when I hugged my tall husband, I left a cheek print of skin-tone on his dark sweater. :( I will be returning it.

          It may be that this product will work well for you on your skin. It's just not the right one for me.

            Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

            I use this foundation every single day. I have rosacea and lots of redness on my cheeks. This is the best thing I've been able to find at this price point. I'm sure there are better foundations out there with fuller coverage than this, but if you're looking to spend around 10 dollars, this is it. This foundation has never made me break out, and it still looks okay after an 8 hour day at work.

                This is a great product for the person who has combination skin. I use moisturizer before putting this product on, and it stays all day. I use the blender sponges to apply and it goes on smooth and even. A touch of concealer before helps the places of sin- but this has great overall coverage and a blot extra with a little blending could conceal some sin. Great product, I've been using the entire dream matte line for years but this is my favorite one of the bunch.

                  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.
