Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Review in Sandy Beige
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.

This foundation isn't 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 application. It’s not matte, but it’s not too dewy either. It blends really easy and it's not too watery nor runny and it isn't a mousse-type either. It offers a light coverage that you can build up to medium. If you want more coverage, you'll just have to use a concealer on your eye bags or dark spots. I also love that this foundation doesn't have any harsh smell.

As for the packaging, it comes in a clear glass, so you can actually see how much product you have left, which is a good thing. I love products that come in glasses. The pump isn't the best kind as I've used other BB creams and 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 three hours after application. When you first apply this product, it looks flawless and has a great natural finish, but after a few hours, it really makes you look dewy. I don’t mind it since I like the 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 three to four hours.

Does it have a white cast?
Yes, but it isn't horrendous as you'd think. Probably minimal?

Do I recommend this product? 
Yes during the colder months, no during summer. Weather really does play a critical role. When you’re in a tropical country sporting oily skin, I’d say you need to retouch after two to three hours. If you’re in an office or a cold environment, four hours would be tops before you touch up. Product is very easy to apply and blend using a brush or 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.
