The Review Crew® Report: Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation and Bricks Bronzer

This is what our reviewers thought of these new makeup buys

The Review Crew® panel

Beauty Crew sent Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Foundation and Bricks Bronzer to a panel of women aged 18 to 39 with normal skin, who were looking for a long-wearing foundation with sun protection and a luminous finish.

What they loved about Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Foundation

The finish of the product: Many Review Crew® members loved that the product gave the skin a nice glow that lasted all day.
How light the product felt: Members also praised how the product felt light on skin and that they could easily achieve an even coverage.

This may not be for you if…

You have oily skin: While reviewers did love the dewy finish, testers prone to some oiliness thought that the foundation made them look a little shiny and mentioned the product would be better suited to those with normal or dry skin.

The verdict:

The formula is something that I'm really excited about, it's beautiful! Very breathable (great for balmy summer nights) and lightweight, which I very much appreciate as I dislike the feel of foundation.

The foundation is highly pigmented, I applied it with its sponge, and it blends easily without any hassle.

What they loved about Maybelline New York Bricks Bronzer

How it was multi-purpose: A few members reported that they enjoyed how the product could be used as a bronzer and highlighter at the same time.
The pigmentation of the product: Many reviewers also made mention of how the product showed up on skin quite nicely, even on medium skin tones.

This may not be for you if…

You have fair skin: While members loved how the product could give their makeup a sun-kissed finish, some reviewers with fairer skin tones found the bronzer a bit too orange for their complexions.

The verdict:

It gives me the perfect bronze effect without being too much and has a slight shimmer which complements a summer glow perfectly.
