Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Review

Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation
Grade: A
Purchase Price: $7.99
Purchase Place: Ulta
SALE ALERT: Today (9/24/2011) has the Dream Smooth Mousse foundation on sale for only $5.00

I bought this foundation on a whim one day when purchasing some makeup from Ulta. I wasn't really sure what to expect from it being that at the time I purchase I had never used it before. I am glad I bought it because I ended up loving it so much that I purchased a second one when my first one started to get empty. It is a decent sized product that twists apart in my middle. The top container houses a sponge applicator while the foundation is in the bottom half. When i apply the Dream Smooth Mousse I use the little sponge that came with the product and lightly apply all over my face. I've found that when using this product a little goes a long way especially when using the sponge applicator. I've found that it's very easy to apply, but you do need to be careful how much you put on the sponge because it is easy to apply to much. This foundation gives me great coverage especially when used with a very good primer. Don't let the name fool you, this products consistency is not like the dream matte mousse foundation. I actually like the consistency of Dream Smooth I think is much better than the Dream Matte. The Dream Matte Mousse felt like whipped air and when I used the Dream Matte it seemed to sit on top of my skin and separate during the day and leave noticeable patches on my face and looked horrible after a few hours. The Dream Smooth Mousse however does not do that at all, the consistency is hard but slightly creamy in the pan and when I wear this all day it always looks good on my face, gives me nice even coverage, is lightweight, and leaves a nice matte finish. I also use the Dream Smooth Mousse with a translucent powder which gives it a even nicer finish. Overall I'm loving this foundation and will continue to use it for awhile.
