    I think this foundation is quite heavy on the skin. It exagerated my pores and made my dry patches really visible even after I moisturized very well. I will try it in the summer again and see how it will react with my summer skin. I received this product for free for testing purposes from Chick advisor. The shade I believe classic ivory was too pale because in other maybeline foundations the shade worked great. The price I believe is a little too much for this one as well. Overall, would not recommend it right now but I will cone back and review during the summer!

    I was sent this by ChickAdvisor! Thanks so much, ladies :)
    So first things first, I was expecting this foundation to be super light and super matte. At first glance, I was a bit worried about how thick it was, and was wary of what it would do to the oil balance of my skin.

    The foundation is light and mousse-like, and applied surprisingly thinly, and gave me a light to medium coverage. I found that with this foundation, I had to use more, as the foundation dried quickly. It was cool to the touch, and I did feel an initial hydrating sensation, but it didn't last for the whole day. I found this foundation to be a bit too cakey for my taste, and it did wear off and clumped in dry patches. The soft matte finish wasn't as matte as I expected, and it really made me oily, sadly. I wouldn't really recommend this foundation for summer, and maybe for really normal-type skin people, definitely not oily or dry.

    Je trouve que le fond de teintDream Velvet de Maybelline, que j'ai recu gratuitement, sent bon. Il a une belle texture et sa couleur correspond très bien à ma carnation de peau. Le seul hic que j'ai constaté, c'est que n'étant une très grande consommatrice de fond de teint j'ai eu quelques difficultés lors de l'application autant avec mes doigts qu'avec la petite houpette. J'ai aussi remarqué qu'après quelques temps je sentais une certaine lourdeur dans mon visage.mest-ce le produit ou le fait que je ne suis pas habitué au fond de teint ??? Je ne le sais pas.

    I was soo excited to try the Dream velvet foundation from Maybelline. However I was not overly impressed! I received it as a trial from Chick advisor with the Dream blender. I enjoyed the blending tool, quite a lot actually. Sadly, though, I did not like the dfoundation itself as much as I had hoped. Yes the formula was creamy and smooth and super light but I didn't find the coverage enough unless I pasted it on, which I don't like to do. It worked well over non problem areas but my under eye bags came through immensely and my combination skin posed problems around my mouth!

    Thank you Chick Advisor for allowing me to try this product! This was another one I was excited about trying! Im a big fan of Maybelline products and is usually my go to foundation brand. Ive tried mousse foundations before and I found the Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation to be very similar to that. This foundation had a nice feel and a nice texture but for some reason did not work well with my skin. It just basically smeared over and it was really hard to get it to blend on my face. I found it left streaks and marks and sank in to every fine line I had. Im not sure who they would market this foundation to but maybe we be good for a younger (teen) demographic. It does feel natural on the skin and not heavy but after a couple hours it did seem to make my skin very oily and greasy looking. I would not recommend this to anyone who has skin issues or blemishes they want to cover. I will not be purchasing this product in the future but grateful I did get to try it.

    The shade I recieved was 90 Honey Beige. I applied it with no primer underneath with the Dream blender (which I loved) and at first I was impressed. It seemed to be the perfect shade when I took selfies and looked in the mirror. It was hydrating. In addition, I loved how it did not feel heavy at all and gave good coverage. It was lightweight and my skin felt great. However, when I decided to do the flash test, I found that I looked like a ghost. Either it was the wrong shade or something is completely off in the formula. I am willing to try it again with another shade but the ghostly appearance it gave me when I used the flash really turned me off. I washed it off immediately.

    Received this free from ChickAdvisor and to be honest, I didn't really like this foundation very much. For me, it seemed very heavy and it was easy to tell that I was wearing makeup. Perhaps the colour match wasn't too great and that was the reason for it.
    I'm used to lightweight foundations that are light-medium coverage so this was too heavy for me, and I felt it make my acne bumps more visible. Even with the beauty blender, it didn't look very natural on my skin.

    When I first purchased this I liked it . After wearing it a couple more times I noticed it was drying out my skin. It didn't last long, faded and left matches on my face. I guess my face it too dry for it.

    i received the Maybelline Dream Velvet foundation in the colour 95 COCONUT.

    This line can improve by adding to more diverse colour line. i had to choose a foundation that was darker than my skin colour, but i mad it work (kinda)

    in terms of feel of the product, it feels amazing! very smooth an not heavy (cakey).
    i do wish there was more product. i felt like I continuously had to squeeze the product. that may be because its not a liquid that an easily cover your face.

    This product does not make your face oily at all, which is a great thing.

    Overall, it is great to use for oily and non oily skin. I would just suggest a more diverse line of foundation colours.

    I liked the texture of this product as I applied it - it was a creamy mousse, light application. I got medium coverage out of the product, which is exactly what I prefer.
    My skin didn't dry out but this product didn't exactly hydrate my skin to the point where I could apply it without using a moisturizer first (I tested it both ways).
    Compared to the foundation I currently use, I prefer how weightless this one feels - I don't feel like there is a heavy product on my face, which is great because when I wear makeup I want it to last all day without looking greasy or feeling cakey.

    I received this product free with ChickAdvisor's Product Review Club. Since I received it complementary, I was given a sample which I never got to see before. That being said, the shade I received was creamy natural, which is the colour I usually buy for other foundations, and it was a bit too dark for my skin tone. It was also a bit more orange for my preference but I mixed it with another matte foundation I use so I don't end up wasting it. If I got a colour that matched my skin tone better, I might purchase this product some time in the future because as I said earlier, it feels light, has the velvety-smooth feel as advertised and it isn't too expensive.
