Image for Dream Mousse - light as air

Awhile ago I had the opportunity to try the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse when a friend of my son's was visiting. I'd always wanted to check this foundation out but I wasn't certain that I'd actually like the matte finish. The friend graciously invited me to try some of the foundation and I have to say I liked it enough that I then decided to purchase some of my own.

The shades available cover a wide skin tone range with 10 different shades to choose from and the product, which is creamy smooth and thick so a little does go a long way, comes in a small glass container with a screw on top. The foundation is excellent for taking with you as it's compact enough that it doesn't take up a lot of room and the lid fits tightly so you never have to worry about foundation accidentally leaking from the container. This product isn't a liquid but a whipped, light cream type consistency that goes on very nicely with just your finger tips - although a foundation brush would work to apply it as well.

It has a slight scent but nothing unpleasant and it appears to be suitable for sensitive skin as I have had no reactions to the product while using it. This product also lasts a very long time. I have had my Dream Mousse for over a year and that includes my youngest daughter using it fairly frequently as well.

This Dream Mousse leaves a matte finish, no shine at all and it smoothes out the skin and leaves a very nice, professional finish. It is indeed very light when on and it feels as though I have no makeup on at all. A very natural finish that I really like.

The one recommendation I would like to make though is that the product come with a little makeup "scoop" of some sort. The one thing I like about liquid foundations is that you aren't dipping your fingers into the product to apply. With this product you have to dip your fingers, or sponge into the jar each time - if a little scoop of some sort were provided that perhaps snapped onto the lid or underneath the jar conveniently you'd not have to fear any contamination entering into the product every application.

Other than that, this was a product that once applied provided a nice, light, just powdered look that was a pleasure to wear and came off with ease at the end of the day but wore well throughout the day til I took it off. I'd purchase this again.
