The Review Crew® Report: Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

What our reviewers had to say about the matte-finish, hydrating foundation

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / May 25 2017

The Review Crew® panel

Beauty Crew sent Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation, which offers a semi-matte finish with medium coverage and extra hydration, to a panel of women aged between 18 and 39 with normal or combination skin.

What they loved

How matte it left their skin: Reviewers commented that the product left a soft matte finish, which was particularly handy for those with oily areas.

The texture of the product: Members also made mention of how the gel-like formula felt light to wear and was hydrating on skin.

How it covered imperfections: Many Review Crew® members loved how the product offered medium coverage and helped cover problem areas and imperfections.

This may not be for you if...

You have yellow-based skin: While the Review Crew® panel found that the foundation gave a natural finish on pink-based skin tones, a few did mention it would be handy to have shades with neutral and yellow undertones available.

The verdict

Great product for mums on the run - small tube packaging is easy to pop in a bag and foundation is easy to apply. It has a nice natural look and lasts a busy day.

I wore this out to dinner and it lasted the whole night. It left my skin feeling velvety soft and covered imperfections perfectly.

The foundation has a very natural finish and few hours after application my skin felt and looked very even and natural.
