I used Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid for the last few weeks as I was sent a bottle through the post as part of a competition win, I'm not sure of the shade name I used (I didn't check!) but it's what I'd call a 'Nude' or 'Natural' shade which was good for me.
The foundation is sold in a glass bottle with pump top, you need a couple or three pumps to dispense enough product for a whole face and maybe a little more if you're wearing something low cut and want to continue your foundation down your neck. I applied mine with my make up blending sponge and the texture of the liquid is perfect for that method.
My skin looks really fantastic after using this foundation but sadly the appearance doesn't stay looking as good for long, the foundation starts to look patchy and faded very quickly (within two hours, maybe less than that) - I had applied concealer one day over a blemish and was mortified when I spotted my face in the bank to see my foundation had decided to wear away in that area so my slightly lighter concealer was showing through. Not a good look!
This is a semi medium coverage foundation in my opinion which doesn't last long enough for it to be useful, that's a real shame as otherwise it's fab as the colour is good and the foundation applies beautifully. I wish the dewy appearance of my skin would stay for longer as after using Dream Satin there is definitely a visual improvement to the tone of my skin - unfortunately I can't trust it to remain on my skin where it should be so I won't be paying the £8 for a new bottle now mine has run out.
This foundation slides on easily and blends really well. The pump makes it very easy to use and you can see how many pumps you need to cover your whole face meaning that nothing is wasted. For a short while, it looks flawless and it is so light you can hardly tell that you have make up on. However, it does not last very long at all. After a couple of hours it goes patchy and starts to slide off the face and it sits unevenly on dry skin. It is much better suited to oily skin but it may need some powder to help it stay longer.
The range of colours means that it is very easy to pick one that suits your skin colour. They also stock some of the palest colours which other brands do not stock which is very helpful!
I think that this foundation is best suited to oily, blemish free skin as it has a very light coverage and doesn't hide blemishes.
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.
