Generally this foundation is not recommended for oily skin types, however my skin is combination and I find this foundation fantastic for all skin types. The foundation is extremely easy to apply and looks natural blending easily on the skin. It is also a prime base for applying further make up such as blush and eye shadow. Additionally, not a lot of the foundation needs to be used in application to achieve a full and even coverage and when in the correct shade for your skin type doesn't give a cakey or orange look. The feel of the foundation is also as the name suggests of a satin touch and certainly gives a pore less look whilst effectively covering blemishes. The foundation does also not clog pores leading to breakouts or feel heavy and is easily removable with any make up remover.
However, my one problem with this foundation is that sometimes the coverage begins to fade throughout the day which is not ideal and in comparison to the 24 hour lasting foundation the lasting effect of the Dream Satin Liquid does not compare. That being said this foundation is notably lighter and can be easily reapplied throughout the day.
I have been using this foundation for around 3 months now and have found it to be a fantastic purchase! This foundation often doesn't transfer on to clothes either giving it an edge over many other foundations. The overall result of this foundation is that is makes my skin look and feel smoother, exactly what I seek in a foundation.
I bought this foundation purely as it was on offer in Boots. It should have been £7.99, I paid just £5.99 for it. I have very pale skin so I was pleased that this range catered for paler skin tones. There was a good range of shades available to choose from.
The foundation comes presented in a pump bottle, which is great as it minimises wastage. The bottle is strong and sturdy and overall the packaging is pretty good.
The foundation itself is of a good consistency. It dispenses easily and it is easy to apply. I find that the foundation applies even better over moisturised skin, so it's always a good idea to apply a thin layer of moisturiser beforehand. You can also use a primer too, if you wish.
I use one pump at a time until I have built up my desired level of coverage. The foundation blends well into the skin and covers spots and imperfections well. Unfortunately it doesn't last all day, even with a primer underneath. It sort of slides off my skin, although I do have very oily skin which is probably why that happens. However, better quality foundations don't seem to have a problem staying put. Maybe my skin just needs a better quality foundation to fulfil its needs?
I would say this foundation is perhaps better suited to dry/ normal skin types. People with oily skin (like mine) should avoid this one as it does nothing for oil control. I had to apply blotting powder multiple times a day to absorb the shine that this foundation left behind. Also, it aggravated my acne around my chin area, which was another annoying thing as that meant I needed yet MORE foundation to cover it up!
This is a cheap foundation and it does the job but it certainly isn't for oily skin. I wouldn't re purchase it for this reason. I still have it and I use it on my days off when I don't have anything planned. For work and for days out I think I will stick to my Mac Studio Fix foundation in NW13 which is excellent for oily skin.
Worth a try on offer as perhaps it would suit you. It didn't suit me though.
So I decided to try this foundation because it was described to leave the skin looking 'poreless', which appealed to me, and it also seemed to give good coverage when I tested it. So I bought a bottle in the lightest shade (I'm blonde and very pale). My first realisation is that for the lightest shade, the foundation was very orange. It left my face being a completely different colour to my neck and ears! Secondly, it gave my skin a very weird and undesirable texture..it never seemed to dry, and it left my skin looking bumpy and strange, not poreless. But to give it the benefit of the doubt, I finished my face and left it on. Less than 2 hours later, I checked my makeup in my mirror - I wish I hadn't. The foundation had creased and cracked where I had smiled, and had collected around my nose, leaving weird orange patches on the apples of my cheeks and not much makeup anywhere else. I also had to spend majority of the day making sure not to rest my face on anything, or touch my face, in fear that the never-drying foundation would smear all over the place. So basically, the colour, staying power, and finish of the foundation is not for me at all. I have DRY skin and this made me so oily, so I dread to think the results a person with oily skin would get with this! I'm not sure if it's just me, or if everyone's had this reaction. But I won't be buying again!

I am a big fan of Maybelline products. Despite the annoying jingle that they use on their adverts, I think their products are generally good and offer good value for money. That's why I had no hesitation in trying this foundation. I have not really got brand loyalty with anything, so I happy to try anything and I was happy that I tried this.
The foundation comes in a really handy squeezy bottle that makes it easy to measure the amount that you are getting out in one go and means that you don't end up squeezing out too much and wasting it. The bottle is a see through one, which means you can see the colour of the product inside before you buy, which helps with matching skin tone. I have found that the colour of the product through the bottle is actually a good match for it on your skin, which is helpful
It is available in seven shades, ranging from the very, very pale to the very, very dark, which means that you are bound to find a colour that suits your skin tone.
The thing I love most about this foundation is that it is a really light and airy mousse, which means that it is really easy to blend in and it doesn't feel at all heavy on your skin. I can't stand wearing make up when I feel like my face is caked and this is not the case at all with this one. It really does feel light and it makes a nice base for other make-up, with the added bonus of it helps other make-up to stay on longer and last longer too.
The foundation is £7.99 at the time of writing, which I think is really good value for money and I would definitely recommend it.
I absolutely love this product I used to use constantly and used with Dream Matte Mousse it's flawless, it's full coverage, I have freckles and with using this nobody knows. The only downfall to this product is that it does not agree with my skin, after using this I get small under the skin bump on my forehead and cheeks, however my friends use it and it doesn't happen to them so it just must be my skin type.
I have tried many foundations in the past few years, most of them being drugstore/cheap ones. One day I came across this in the shop and decided it was worth the purchase as I had been having problems with my previous foundation anyway and was looking to change it anyway. The colour of this foundation actually went surprisingly well with my skin tone. I find it every hard to find foundation colours which go with my natural skin tone but this one went exceptionally well. I loved the finish that it have my skin, when I had just applied the foundation it looked flawless and radiant. This foundation helped to cover my imperfections pretty easily also. The only problems are if you apply too much of this foundation it can become very cakey and fake looking very quickly. If you only wear a thin layer however it looks a lot better. I also struggled to find a way to make this foundation lasts all day. I find this liquid foundation to begin to rub off and wear away as the day goes on. I love this foundation but believe you could get a lot better by only spending slightly more. The look of this bottle of foundation is very classy, the bottle is easy to use and helps you get all of the left over product out easily. The colours that this foundation are very varied so you should check before buying as they are every likely to have your exact colour
I use to be a big fan of Maybelline cosmetics. I wouldn't say I would never try them again but there are various products I would not recommend and this product would fit nicely into that category for me personally.
I have unfortunately oily skin that is thankfully under control through trial and error and due to this products 'lightweight' claim I thought it might be good for skin such as mine, but it created more problems.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a dream satin liquid foundation that aims to be lightweight due to the product being air-whipped. This should aid to give you a poreless finished appearance. When it is applied it should also give the appearance of luminous skin.
The claim on the products is that it will not clog up your skin and is good for sensitive skin.
This is oil free, fragrance free, and has been tested under dermatological control.
WHY I CHOOSE IT
I chose this product because of the points raised above. I wanted a light product without it being oil based and the fact it was great for sensitive skin and with eight shades to chose from I thought what could I lose?
HOW TO APPLY
An even layer applied to the skin for full coverage using your fingertips.
This claims to glide on lightly and effortlessly being a mousse liquid but for me it came out easy from the pump bottle and seemed light and with the mousse effect so far so good but when I applied it to my skin it seemed thicker than I imagined it would be. As I tried to evenly spread the liquid over my skin it seemed to become harder to spread because it thickened up and almost 'set' so I couldn't spread to any other area and found my adding more foundation.
I wouldn't say this gave an even coverage, even though I checked and checked before leaving my room, I had good friends mentioned that it looked clumped in one area ot not blended in another.
If you apply too little it doesn't do anything but if you apply to make it even then it caked very quickly.
When I did manage to put the product on fast enough to spread so it didn't set and evenly spread it I found that the product cracked whether I had applied it well or not.
Throughout the day I looked like I had cracked skin and the makeup affected the blusher I was wearing.
Over a period of time, the product did actually clog up my skin and I found that all the hard work getting my skin well balance this made my skin oil which obviously led to spots.
To remove this product I used soapy hot water as normal but the flannel looked like it had a layer of thick cream come away, I was a bit horrified there was that much on my skin for something so light and I found it took ages to make sure it all had been removed unlike the ease of other foundations.
I was gutted and would not recommend this.
This foundation has been around for a while and seems pretty popular. I can see why as it gives great coverage and gives your skin a fresh and dewy appearance upon application, however, I couldn't use this as my every day make-up as it simply doesn't last.
The appearance of the product is very simple and not particularly appealing in my book but I thought the foundation was worth a try based on the advert's promises so bought it on a 3 for 2. The liquid itself is of quite a thick consistency and provides medium coverage so may be too heavy for some but I like a healthy amount of coverage so it works for me. I would advise using a primer underneath this foundation as it can be slightly difficult to spread evenly without it.
One of the best things about this foundation is that it feels like it brightens up your complexion and gives quite a pure, clear skin kind of look- so although the coverage is medium it gives a very natural finish. The palest shade of this make-up was a great match for my skin but there aren't too many shade options so I think I just got lucky and others may not find their perfect shade.
The drawback of this foundation is that although it provides a lovely finish it doesn't last long and seems to transfer/sweat off/fade away incredibly quickly. I would often find that a few hours into my day I would catch sight of myself in the mirror and feel like I hadn't applied foundation that day. For me that just isn't good enough so I didn't re-purchase.
This certainly isn't the worst foundation around, but it's far from the best. It has pretty good coverage and, if it matches your skin tone well, it can look really nice and soft upon application - plus, it doesn't run and instead stays in place all day. However, it doesn't feel too nice on the skin. For starters, it feels pretty heavy, and it's hard to use only a little amount because it's of a slightly thicker consistency than a lot of foundations. also, I fin fit quite drying, and throughout the day it tends to flake a bit on my skin, but that might just be my skin type (combination, but mostly dry on the forehead). I did get a really good colour match, though, and it looks nice short-term.
On a day trip out to Otley, I came across a shop that sold loads of make up products among other things. In the things they sold I saw this Dream Nude Foundation. As I was running out of foundation, this caught my eye, as we all know Maybelline is a good brand and the price on this was only £4. So I bought it and took it back home with me. I looked at the bottle the next day and on the back it had all the ingredients on, but whatever else it had on I am not sure, as it was in a foreign language. As I did not have my glasses on when I was shopping I had never noticed this. But who really cares if it is in foreign if it does a good job.
So the next day I decided to give it a try, as you are supposed to with all most bottled products I gave the bottle a good shake, and pushed down the lid to squirt out some of the liquid. Quite a bit came onto my hand, a little bit too much if I am honest, so just be careful not to press too hard when you use this, as it does come out pretty quickly and you loose some of the liquid as it is not needed.
When I applied this to my face I usually just put a few dots of foundation around my face, then rub it in. so I did this the same way, and it did work just as well as any other liquid foundation. Although this did seem a little more wet than normal. At first I was not sure how well it would rub in due to how wet it seemed.
So I rubbed all the little dots around my face into the skin and it seemed to rub in very well, and also looked good on my skin. It did not feel oily or anything just left my face feeling smooth and looking a little bit better than it did. If I am honest I have got the sort of face that does not need foundation, so I always go for the ones that will match my skin colour and not too dark. This just blended in really well, and made my skin look and feel nice.
My overall opinion on this foundation is that I would recommend it, as it does look and feel great and it does last for a good night out, without having to apply this again, but you do have to watch how much of it you use, as it is so easy to over use this, as it comes in a 50ml bottle it has lasted me quite a while so far, so it was well worth my £4 and it is something that I would buy again.
Unfortunately this product did not live up to my expectations. I generally like Maybelline for concealers and foundations but this one really made me look like I had put on foundation. I bought two different colours and even the darker version made me look very pale and did not smooth over well. I found the packaging nice, however I would definitely not recommmend this in comparison to other Maybelline products.
I tend to use moisturises with a hint of added foundation, but I like to have some foundation in my make up bag to use on special occasions or when my skin looks particularly dull and in need of a little help. My most recent buy was Maybellines Dream Satin Liquid foundation which I picked up on offer, it is currently priced around £8. There are 7 shades to choose from: Porceline, sun beige, fawn, sand, Nude, cameo and Ivory, I chose the latter.
Maybellines Dream Satin Liquid comes in a 30 ml heavy glass bottle with a push down pump on top. The bottle is clear, so the foundation can clearly be seen inside. The brand, product name and shade are shown on the front along with the claim that this product will create a "air - whipped Air - brush finish". General information is given on the back including ingredients. Once opened the product should be used within twelve months.
I tend to pump a small amount of the foundation onto my fingers and simply massage it into my face taking care to cover all areas evenly. I find it applies to the skin easily and it feels incredibly soft and light on the skin. It is not oily like some foundation I have used in the past, it dries in quickly to give an even finish. Perhaps saying the skin looks "air brushed" is a tad over the top but I do find it covers any blemishes and redness with ease and leaves the skin looking pretty flawless. Its quite long lasting too and personally I never feel the need to reapply. It is worth noting that the heavy glass bottle may pose a few problems for those wanting to carry it around with them in their bag. To remove the foundation I gently wipe my skin with a facial wipe and this removes all trace of the product from my face.
As mentioned earlier I don't wear foundation every day, I bought this bottle about three months ago and have just over half the bottle left. I would certainly buy Maybellines Dream Satin Liquid foundation again, especially if I saw it on offer.
I was very bored with my usual foundation and felt like a change. I have been buying Maybelline mascaras for many years and am fairly brand loyal to them, so I thought I would give their Dream Satin Liquid foundation a go.
This comes in a small plastic bottle with a beige plastic pump at the top. The front has a label giving the brand name and name of the product. The packaging is very plain and to be honest in comparison with some other Maybelline products, I find the bottle to be quite cheap looking. But if it means I don't have to fork out extra for fancy packaging then fair enough.
Maybelline claim that this is 'air-whipped' foundation that is suitable for sensitive skin. They also say it won't clog pores and will give a 'luminous' finish.
This is available in 7 different shades - Light Porcelain, Ivory, Cameo, Nude, Sand, Fawn, Sun Beige and Caramel. I am fairly pale so I got this in Ivory.
SMELL, APPEARANCE AND TEXTURE
This is oil-free and fragrance-free, and has been tested under dermatological control. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to rosacea so I need to be extremely careful about what I put on my face. I have not had any issues with this foundation - no dryness, sensitivity or rashes, hurrah!
Maybelline describe this foundation as 'air-whipped' and indeed the texture is very light and creamy. It comes out of the pump in a thick blob and I thought it might be slightly difficult to apply smoothly and evenly to the face. The foundation I used previously was L'Oreal's True Match which in complete contrast is quite a runny foundation, so it was very different for me to use this one.
Maybelline advise that you apply this with your fingertips, but I have never been able to apply foundation decently with my fingers, so I use a make-up sponge to apply this. I don't need to dampen the sponge beforehand as this is fine to apply with a dry sponge.
The foundation goes on very smoothly and glides across the skin as you apply it to wherever on your face you need it. I found that I only needed a small blob for my chin, forehead and each cheek as even a small blob will spread across the skin.
I was really happy with the coverage this foundation gave, especially on my forehead and chin. As I said previously, I have rosacea so my cheeks generally tend to be on the reddish side. This covered up the majority of that - some redness still showed through but to be honest I am like this with all foundations; it is the fault of my face, not the product! With L'Oreal True Match, it tended to give me those dreadful orange tide marks in places if I didn't blend it into my skin properly, but I didn't experience that with this foundation.
MATCH TO SKIN TONE
The Ivory shade of this foundation is probably the closest I have come to getting a foundation that 100% matches my skin tone. I find it has a pinkish rather than orange tone to it which suits my skin a lot better.
APPEARANCE AND FEELING ON SKIN
In my opinion this looks fine on my skin - not too thick or cakey. Some foundations can make my skin feel tight but this one doesn't. I can 'feel' it on my skin but I like this feeling because knowing I have make-up on always makes me feel more confident.
This has average durability, no better or worse than any other foundation I have ever tried. Enough stays on over the course of a working day for me not to scare colleagues with my make-up less face at the end of the day, and that's good enough for me. I don't have to reapply it throughout the day.
I do have dryish skin so I am not sure how this would perform on oilier skins - it is very smooth in texture and I don't know if it would fade from oily skin easier.
I got this for £7.99 in my local Sainsbury's. This is quite cheap for a foundation nowadays. I'd be willing to pay up to £15 for a foundation as it's so crucial for me to have good coverage, so I am happy to pay this.
WOULD I BUY THIS AGAIN?
Yes, I would buy this foundation again. I really like how well it matches my skin tone, and it provides good enough coverage for the relatively low price. This is a good foundation for drier skins and I was more impressed by it than I thought I would be.
