Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Make-Up 30 Sand, Dream Mousse Blush 01 Dolly Pink & Dream Mousse Eyecolor 10 Caramel Karma

Maybelline Mousse Samples2Hi there! My latest quest to finally use all those free samples filling up my drawers led me to Maybelline’s Dream Mousse products.

I didn’t do swatches because the samples didn’t contain much product. But I’ll tell you how these products fared anyway.

I applied Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse make-up in 30 Sand with my fingers. The foundation was easy to apply and it felt very nice on my skin. I think the coverage is quite impressive.

However, the product didn’t really work with my dry skin – it highlighted a big dry patch (the size of a 50p coin) which I didn’t even know I had. So I think this foundation is better suited to people with oily skin.

I didn’t care for Maybelline’s Dream Mouss blush in 01 Dolly Pink. The blush was much thinner than the foundation and I didn’t manage to apply it as evenly as I had hoped (I’ve never used a mousse blush before).

The good thing is that the blush can be wiped off or blended into the foundation easily, so mistakes can be corrected. However, the downside is that you really can wipe off the blush by accident. Also, this blush is glittery. And since it’s so very easily blendable, I looked like I had gold dust all over my face. This product is definitely not for me.

Maybelline’s Dream Mousse Eyecolor in 10 Caramel Karma fared better than the blush. The shade is a beautiful shimmery light brown which was easy to apply and blend. Unfortunately the mousse eyeshadow didn’t stick to my eyelids. So I ended up with lots of small brown flakes under my eyes and on my cheeks. I tried to wipe off those flakes – very carefully – but this started the unfortunate chain of events which made my face look like it was sprayed with gold dust.

I wouldn’t recommend any of these products to people with dry skin. However, I can see that these mousse products would work well for people with oily skin. In regards to the foundation, the coverage is very nice. I’m thinking of buying a full-size pot of foundation to see if I can somehow mix it with my much loved Pan Stik foundation this summer. 🙂

  1. I have the biggest bag of beauty samples tucked away and it’s always an accomplishment when I use one up! I used up a whole full size tub of Maybelline’s dream mousse foundation and while I did love the cloud-like, light texture, it was too drying! I love a good matte look but even my combo skin couldn’t handle it. Took me like 9 months of using it every day to use it up and I won’t be repurchasing but the application was so easy! The blush always looked interesting but glad I never bought it after your review!

    • Use your samples, hun! You could do a sampling marathon. 🙂 I too feel a sense of achievement when I’m using samples. The stash is shrinking!

      I too loved the nice and easy application of the mousse products. But they’re not great unless you have oily skin. And the blush really wasn’t fit for purpose.

  2. I have the foundation and got oily skin and live in a hot country lol. You are right though,it works very well with this skin type and goes on quite smoothly too. I think with the Maybelline products apart from the foundation their mascaras r really gd: give those a try, esp the ‘Rocket’ one.
