Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Maybelline’s Dream Satin Liquid Foundation which I have (well, had) a sample of. The shade I tried is Sand. This foundation promises to make pores appear invisible and to create a perfect complexion. Sounds… cocky! I’ve now given the foundation a try, so let me tell you more about it.
I love how the foundation felt when I applied it. It was dreamy. And satiney. Wow! However, it was impossible to blend the foundation into my skin. I tried, and tried, and tried again – but it didn’t work. And I was disappointed to see that this foundation settled into my pores and fine lines, thus making them more visible.
This foundation doesn’t provide much coverage. However, it still manages to look unnatural and cakey. And on top of that I’ve noticed that this foundation oxidises quite a bit. My face looked orange after just a few hours.
Based on my experience I wouldn’t recommend this foundation. If you want a natural looking foundation that provides good coverage without looking like it’s been caked on, you need to look elsewhere. Maybelline’s Dream Satin Liquid Foundation is available as 30ml for £8.
