If you’re a drugstore makeup junkie, you’ll love the new Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation, $15.99.
The Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation contains increased color pigments, which deliver complete luminous coverage for fresh-faced perfection. Maybelline has eight different shades available and is for all skin types.
The compact flips open to reveal a nice mirror, and a powder puff. I didn’t use the puff to apply the product but this is nice for on-the-go touch ups. That pot area contains all of the foundation. This is a great feature because the cushion remains sealed and protected. This will help so that your foundation doesn’t dry out and protects it from leaking in your makeup bag or purse.
I have this foundation in five shades. In the photograph, I am wearing the shade 20 Classic Ivory. I found it to be a pretty perfect match for my relatively fair skin. I applied this product with a Beautyblender. I simply dabbed the Beautyblender onto the sponge (be careful, it picks up a lot of product) and applied it to my face.
The foundation blends into your skin seamlessly. It doesn’t look heavy or cakey on your face. In my opinion, I find this foundation gives light to medium coverage. You can apply a second layer to reach medium coverage in certain areas where you might think the assistance more (like red areas, blemishes, etc.).
I have oily skin and this foundation wore well for about 5-6 hours. After that, I needed to use blotting paper to absorb oils and apply a little bit of powder to areas to mattify the skin. If you have dry or normal skin, I think you will really love this foundation as well. If you have oily skin, just wear your favorite primer underneath to lengthen the wear time and be sure to blot/powder as necessary.
I do really enjoy this foundation despite having oily skin. I love the fact that it feels weightless on the skin and doesn’t really “look” like makeup.
