Because I buy the majority of my makeup items from department stores, I’m not especially familiar with some of the drugstore makeup gems out there. For this reason I personally find makeup reviews extremely helpful. I recently purchased this Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation in search of finding a suitable foundation replacement. I normally use Laura Mercier’s Silk Creme Foundation (aahhhmazing) but for financial reasons I had to temporarily switch to a more affordable product. I truly believe that the $43 foundation is worth it, but I can’t afford the hefty price tag at the moment.
I really like this mousse foundation. My skin is typically red toned so I need a foundation with medium to heavy coverage. This foundation is very buildable, meaning you can layer to get your desired coverage. Because it is a mousse, I wouldn’t recommend this foundation for women with oily skin types. The reason I say this, would be due to the dewy sort of glow that the foundation gives the skin. If you have oily skin and want to go ahead and try it out, just make sure and set your foundation with a powder after applying!
I found this helpful shade match guideline on Karla’s Sugar and wanted to include it for your convenience!
