In my recent haul, I came across this Dream Matte Mousse from Maybelline New York. For a very long time, I believed that this product was very heavy and cakey but I suddenly felt the urge to give it a go and to my surprise, it's completely the opposite to what I thought. A lot of young girls tend to use this in the wrong way. They usually slap way too much on their face making it look very thick. 

Although the product is a foundation, I find it very hard to use and make it look natural so I apply very little to small areas as a concealer. If I us this as foundation, I feel as if it's so smooth that it feels like it doesn't sit on my face and the make up I put on top of it (like liquid eyeliner or blush etc.) doesn't stay put. I have this in Nude which matches my olive asian skin tone very well once it is blended in properly. I use this on top of my usual BB cream and finish it off with a matte powder. Despite the product stating that it is a matte finish, I feel like it becomes greasy and oily throughout the day. So I put very little on my skin to avoid a face that resembles warm butter. However, after asking other girls they don't have the same problem, so perhaps it only certain skin types that this suits.

I bought this on offer at Boots but the usual price is £7.69. I wouldn't buy this on a regular basis because of the texture but due to how much I use anyway, I doubt I'll be running out anytime soon.

What's your opinion of this hidden gem?
Do you have the same problem as me?



  1. I like the idea of a foundation being in a glass jar packaging. do you apply this with a brush or with fingers? (ps. love the gold glitter nail polish!) xxx

    1. Thank you! I apply this with my ring finger so that I can control how much I use, then I use a brush to blend it in :) xxx

  2. I used to use that until they got rid of the colour I went for and I had to mix it with face cream.
    Great post xx

  3. I've personally never tried this as I'm wary of mousse type textures. Rimmel have a new foundation out which is supposed to be quite good for oily skin, it has a matte finish to it.

  5. Hi there ^ _ ^ I've never used this product either although I have heard of it from a friend. I don't think it would work well with my skin because I am VERY oily haha and I agree, I feel my eyeliner and other stuff would slip off >////< Cute cute blog!!

  6. I used to use it all the time but gone off it. Liquid foundation is the way to go for me :) x
