I’m a huge fan of foundations and I just cannot stop trying new ones because I have this extreme obsession with them. Every month I feel like trying a different foundation to suit my skin more with the changing seasons because I’m curious and because I like to be broke. Since I’m an Asian so we have to change our makeup preferences with seasons. We all are well aware of Maybelline and where it stands in the world. So automatically while looking for nice makeup it catches your attention. So the other day I came across Maybelline dream matte mousse foundation. Checked it out and bought it immediately from the drugstore. Because. You know. MAYBELLINE 🙂

My take on Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation:

Getting over the Maybelline obsession, I’m now going to give you my honest review about this product. While we get intimidated by Maybelline’s brand name, there’s only so much satisfaction in every product you can find. It was a major change for me because I shifted from liquid foundation to using matte mousse. Here are some of the features of Maybelline Dream matte mousse foundation that the company claims:

  • Superior coverage and light weight.
  • Even-toned, soft and natural looking skin.
  • Air-soft, Perfect matte finish.
  • 16 varying shades.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation Shades

I tried various shades and bought the “Nude” shade for light skin because honestly the shade that I thought was matching with my skin tone exactly was a tone darker actually. And yes ladies. Mark my words to never try it on your arms. ALWAYS try foundation shades on your face to have a better understanding of them. So anyways let me give you a rough review of some of the goods and bads of this foundation.

THE PROS OF Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation:

Well for starters, the base feels very LIGHT just as the company claims. Sometimes it feels so very light that you feel like applying a coating again. It’s very easy, soft and light weighted for application. Secondly, SUPERB BLENDING AND EXCELLENT COVERAGE. Like if I were to buy this product again it would be for this reason. It does give out a matte look. But I would rate the matte finish 7/10. Plus the foundation works really great for dry and combination skin. And it stays on with that matte finish on your skin for good 6 hours. There’s no shiny factor in this Dream Matte Mousse foundation. Which works for me during my routine usage for work or university. Other than that it’s a quite affordable foundation readily available.

THE CONS OF Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation:

If you happen to have an oily skin and live in hot & humid areas then I’ve got a bad news for you. This Dream Matte Mousse foundation might not work for you. It lacks in its staying power which makes it really unsuitable for oily skin. I happen to have a combination skin and we have a hot climate mostly here in South Asia so I prefer using it only during winters for a perfect finish all day because otherwise my face literally melts. Secondly, some of you might not like its smell.


Overall, Maybelline dream matte mousse foundation worked for me. They also have liquid mousse available in this Dream foundation series. Let me know in comment section which product you tried and what are your reviews!
