    Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

    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.

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

      I have combination skin that foundation refuses to stay around my nose area. I have tried so many techniques, foundations, primers, powders and setting sprays (high end and drugstore) and none ever make it last except this foundation!! this looks beautiful covers my acne scars and stays put. it was hot and so I was sweating during application and after but it still managed to look good, I wish I used it sooner, I'm worried because it looks like they might discontinue this with the new foundation release soo if maybaline sees this please don't take this away from me!! I do want to try the new foundation but I still think I will love this more.

        I went to Ulta to buy my usual FIT ME foundation, but they ran out of my color. As an alternative, I decided to try this tiny tube of mousse foundation. To my surprise, I loved it!! Went on smoothly, buildable, and flawless. I can't get over the fact that it's so lightweight. Def a recommend.

          Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

          I have tried so many products high end to low and frankly I hate all of them. I have extremely fair fair skin with light freckles and I would say a neutral undertone. Most every foundation in 01 is too dark for me or they start off great and oxidize yellow or orange on me. I also have very dry ( aging) skin that seems to just look like an Orange peel with most products settling in to my pores. I like to have light coverage that I can build up if needed but let my real skin show through, this product does this wonderfully. With jut a tiny amount on moisturized face I can dab with a damp beauty blender and cover where I want and let my freckles show through where I want. I set it a touch with translucent powder only around the nose and chin and away I go. No scent to freak me out. No oxidization. No heavy crispy feeling. No lip crease lines and I look porcelain pale without looking painted on. I have worn it three days so far and have had no break outs on my sensitive skin so my fingers are crossed. I bought this on a whim and I am so glad I did!

          I have been having trouble with foundation for a while now, as I am redheaded with extremely pale and pinky skin. Whilst out shopping I came across this product as I was looking for another. Since it was only 10 dollars, I decided to just go for it. I had my doubts but this works perfectly! It makes my usually red fact look like the rest of my skin. I would definitely recommend. Go Maybelline for having a great range of colors from pale to dark!

            Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

            I have the driest skin to the point where I apply lotion and as soon as any foundation or concealer hits my skin I start seeing the flakes and have to use tweezers to pick the large ones off and deal with the rest of the dryness. This stuff doesn't dry my skin out at all and goes on like a dream. I have to add a layer or two to any blemishes but I'm very satisfied with it.

            really drying

            By Adriana

            from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

            Comments about Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:

            I was quite disappointed with this product as it really dried out my face and accentuated every little line and dry spot. The coverage itself was medium and went on evenly, but it just did not flatter my skin (combination and sensitive.)

              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.
