What does the brand say?
"Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation helps skin appear completely poreless with our first liquid mousse foundation. Our lighweight, air-whipped liquid blends on to transform the look of skin. From flawless to impeccable, even coverage. Our new satin perfect finish!
Price and Availability
This foundation is £7.99 from Boots, Superdrug and some supermarkets but can be found a couple of pounds less on websites such as feelunique.com.
This foundation comes in a 30ml transparent glass bottle with a plastic clear lid and convenient pump (that pumps out the perfect amount of product needed). The bottle is of good quality and is more luxurious than plastic tubes. Some may find the glass bottle as a disadvantage but if you don't want to waste the product, the pump could be removed if necessary ( as I have had to do with still 1/3 of the product remaining).
According to the Boots website; Maybelline offer 8 shades offering to a pale shade, pale enough for someone like me who often struggles finding a foundation pale enough, to deeper olive shades. Correct me if I am wrong but I think the Maybelline colours names in this foundation correspond with the colour names of the other foundations have to offer.
My skin type
I have dry and very sensitive skin that is very fair. When looking for a foundation I want something that is kind to the skin and makes it look healthy and dewy, therefore the dream satin liquid is perfect for me.
This foundation is thick enough to not run off your hand when you dispense it but not too thick that you can't blend it. It is very easily to apply, I usually opt to use my flat-top elf powder brush, with either your fingers or a blush. It doesn't dry straight away so blending into the skin is easy and doesn't take much effort.
Finish of the foundation/Coverage
The foundation, as the name suggests, is a satin finish, which is semi -dewy semi matte. It's not overboard shiny that you wouldn't be able to pass without a powder however I do feel that I need to at least powder my t-zone, even with my dry skin.
The coverage is medium and will easily cover redness and most blemishes, although bigger or redder blemishes may still be seen.
Lasting power/ Fading
For a drugstore product, the lasting power impresses me. I can apply the foundation at 7.15 in the morning and it will still be in a perfect state by the early evening (about 9 hours wear)
When it does begin to fade it doesn't fade in patches but the coverage begins to disappear and your natural skin colour/redness will peak through.
I am very impressed with this foundation and would definitely repurchase it as it is an affordable product with higher end quality. 5 Stars.
