Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation: A Review

This is a screen shot from my latest YouTube video. I had quite a few comments and questions about my skin/foundation. Time to confess, it was a cheap  product I picked up in Boots.

I got suckered into buying  Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation the other day whilst perusing the make-up isle. Man am I happy with it!

It’s a a cream to liquid product that is designed for dry skin (which I don’t have).On the label it says it will hydrate the skin for 14 hours.


I applied this with my foundation brush. I used the tiniest smidgen and the coverage was very good. It left my skin smooth and soft and quite flawless. Best of all it didn’t dry or cake.

I have combination skin (oily chin, normal everywhere else) but lately I have been enjoying foundations designed for dry skin. Don’t ask me why they work on my skin but for some heavenly reason they do. I am a happy girl! This foundation won’t be to everyone’s taste. If you tend to get greasy, the oils in your skin will probably dissolve this foundation after a few hours.

Maybelline are on 3 for 2 in Boots so I had to pick up two lipstick as well hee hee. I’ll share those with you tomorrow, they’re gorgeous.

Have you tried the Maybelline product?

    What shade of the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse do you use? (b/c your skin tone looks very similar to mine)

    i have the Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation and i wear it every day to college. but i have very oily skin! ahhh! thats the problem. for me the foundation is extremely nice and comes out nice on my face but it only last for about 4 hours then i reapply on my face. i have no idea which foundation to use on my oily skin which will actually last all day! xx

      @Shelley The dream cream is for dry skin so I’d imagine it just slid off your skin. For oily skin I think it’s worht spending a bit more on a foundation designed for your skin type; mattifying products, oil free liquid foundations, powder foundations etc The later doesn’t have to be heavy with the new products on the market. I found that when my skin was oily I wasted a lot of money on drugstore products that just didn’t last. I eventually found Make Up For Ever Face and Body which is oil free and waterproof. This worked great for me but it’s not everyones cup of tea.

    Hmm..I tried this right after it came out. I bought it in Boots. First of all I find the lightest shade is a bit orangy for me. It’s still okay though. My main problem was it made my skin look oily.. and accentuated the dry areas. :( It wasn’t the worst for dry skin I must admit. I find it so difficult to find foundation for combo skin and this just didn’t work. It’s not the worst I have tried. And at the price it was it’s not too bad!! I think if you have better skin than me you’ll be okay. :)

    I’m a bit scared to try this foundation. I tried the Dream Matte Mousse and it broke me out badly after using it for about 10 days. Hm….

    i picked this up the other day too and i have to say i love it! i saw the add on tv and it just looked so tempting! :) i also got the falsies mascara which i think is AMAZING and an eye shadow in the 3 for 2!

    So glad you tried this foundation! This is my new day time foundation! It’s so easy to apply and the number 04 colour works great for me. I have quite dry skin so this is lovely and creamy. By the end of the day, I have rubbed it off but I am comparing that with my Double Wear that doesn’t budge!

    Great budget foundation! My wallet will take a hit in Boots this weekend if there’s 3 for 2! I blame you! :)

    PS Nearly through my first of your magic lavender soaps. The skin on my arms has never been better! Thanks so much!

    Ugh I just bought this &I hate it!. I have combo skin, sometimes oily sometimes dry. Right now my skins a little bit of both. I am using moisturizer on my face every day & before makeup application. But man when I put this stuff on all it did was make me look flakey. It made my soft &smooth &primed face and made it look like I just rubbed liquid all over my face before I moisturized & primed. I’m happy this worked for someone though because the price is right! But I’m still looking for an amazing foundation! :/

    I haven’t tried their foundation yet, but it looks amazing! Their lipsticks are really smooth, and I like them a lot! I know other people like the foundation as well!
