Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse in Sandy Beige

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Sandy Beige Review

Someone requested a review of this foundation last week and I guess today’s the day that I’ll share with you my thoughts. I've been using this one for a few months and even in the summer time I've included this in my favorites and MOTDs.

This foundation has a lot of shades, so make sure to swatch a few first before buying it. Best tip would be to bring a current foundation that matches your skin and swatch it side by side with this foundation to get your perfect match.

I like this foundation. Not my first love nor my holy grail, but it’s a pretty good product for the price of PHP 599. It has an airbrushed finish which you’ll definitely notice after applying it. It’s not matte but it’s not too dewy either. It blends really easy. Not too liquidy nor runny and not mousse type either. It has a light coverage that you can build up to medium, but if you want more coverage, just use concealer on your eye bags or dark spots. This foundation doesn't have any harsh smell too.

The glass is clear so you can see how much product you have left which is a good thing. I love packagings like this. The pump isn't the best kind. I've used other bbcreams or foundations with better pumps and dispenses product equally.

Staying power
I have combination/oily skin (T-zone very oily but cheeks are normal) and I’d say my natural oils seep through 3 hours after application. When you first apply this product, it looks flawless and has a great finish, but after a few hours it really makes you look dewy. I don’t mind it since I like the natural dewy look that it gives in the ber-months. It doesn’t make me look like a grease ball either. Just remember to set this foundation off with powder and reapply powder after 3 to 4 hours to avoid shining bright like a diamond.

Does it have a white cast?
Yes, but it isn't horrendous! Probably minimal? Click here for pictures of me wearing this foundation without powder, retouch or anything since I first applied it and with flash photography.

Do I recommend this product? 
Yes during the colder months. Weather really does play a critical role. When you’re in the heat and have oily skin, I’d say you need to retouch after 2 or 3 hours. If you’re in an office or a cold environment, 4 hours would be tops before you touch up. Product is very easy to apply and blend using a brush/sponge. I've tried applying it with my fingers and it works just as well. For dry skin, this will work very good on you since it has a dewy glow after a few hours.
