    ChickAdvisor kindly provided this product for review.

    First thought when I opened up my package and glanced at the retail price with the amount of foundation I was shocked at how much drugstore foundation prices have gone up. Personally I think I will go through this tube fairly fast and find the price a little steep for that.

    I do love the soft matte texture (feels sort of like a primer) and the coverage is light, but you can definitely build it up to medium coverage. I'm not sure if this is advertised as fragrance free because I love how this foundation does not have a scent to it. My nose is quite sensitive to scents, so I can detect a slight scent to it, but it's barely noticeable.

    I was expecting this to settle into fine lines on my face, luckily it did not, rather it gave me a sort of matte second skin appearance. I do want to mention that the foundation pills off or rubs off into little balls on my skin if I were to smudge my finger down my face. From old habits, I tend to rest my hand on my face a lot in class and found this happening every time. Also I have combination skin and found this to not control oils at all (though it isn't advertised to) after a couple of hours I notice more shine than when I don't wear anything at all. Before applying the foundation onto my face I put some on the back of my hand and felt it slightly sting- therefore sensitive skin gals may want to watch out. I would say if you have pretty nice skin already, don't need the coverage, and is dying to try a new foundation with a nice whipped texture- this would be it.

    Overall, I wouldn't repurchase this as I have tried better foundations that perform better for a lower price.

    The consistancy of the prodcut is nice, not exactly my color but i played with a lighter setting powder. The blender with a bit hard but workable. I have oily skin so I did need to touch up during the day!

    I got chosen to test and do a review on how I liked the Dream Velvet foundation, I was really excited to recieve this and am thankful for the oppertunity!! The box I found in my mailbox was too cute, it had both the foundation and blender. Now for the foundation, I did choose a colour that was to dark, the consistancy of the foundation was deffiantly different from any others I have tryed, it was almost like a mousse. When putting on my founation I usually dot it on my face then go in with my beauty blender, however for this when I "dotted" it on my face it didnt blend out, just stayed in the circle area where I had dotted it on.. I did my best to work with it. The coverage is great as I do have acne and scarring and it was completely covered. I also have oily skin and it did well to keep me looking matte throughout the day! I like the foundation but I wouldnt say I love it.. Really wish it was easier to blend!! & the price is alittle over priced.

    So I tried the Mybelline Dream Velvet foundation in Ivory, and it matched my skin well, especially for it being winter - I think in summer I would have to go a shde or two darker.

    I am coming from a couple years using Rimmel BB Cream which I used to love until they changed the formula, so this is a good substitute.

    The urea (bird poop yum) makes thinks matte. I am VERY concerned about the addition of aluminim though, and probably won't be finishing the tube. I avoid aluminim in deodorants due to its link to causing cancers.

    I received Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation from the ChickAdvisor Product Review Club for the purpose of a product review.

    When I opened the ChickAdvisor box, and upon seeing the packaging of the foundation, I was somewhat concerned that I had chosen a shade too dark for my "winter white" skin tone. Upon application, I was immediately concerned that I'd gone too light. The 'velvet' seems to create a whiteish hue? Additionally, there seems to be a mismatch between the tint of the container and the actual product it contains.

    With the Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation being a tad on the light side, I primarily used the product around my eye area. It offered good coverage on areas of discolouration / bags and did go on uniformly for the most part. I did not find that there was any particular learning curve with this product in terms of the way it is best applied - however, it will start to ball and peel after too much rubbing.

    As it will, my skin is slowly but surely starting to mature. I found that on some areas of my face, the Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation actually highlighted those fine lines after only a couple hours of wear. I've attached a photo illustrating such, using my hand (easier to see). This foundation may be best suited for young, naturally radiant skin, or perhaps paired with a heavier moisturizer.

    It is my preference to use foundation in a thin, nearly translucent layer. With this, I found the Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation wore best when set with a matte pressed powder.

    The product does not seem to have a detectible scent, which is a bonus if you ask me!

    Overall, I did enjoy trying the Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation and I do anticipate continuing to use it up, but only in combination with other products I am already using.

    Sincerely,

    R :)

    I am not really sold on this foundation. The texture is weird (literally is a mousse or "whip") - which ends up going onto my face super cold (I think it's the time of year and that my house runs cold, still weirds me out).

    For me, it doesn't give me the coverage that I'm looking for, yet at first whenever I put it on it feels really thick. It's a mild coverage, that eventually feels very light (after I guess your face gets used to it) but at first feels extremely heavy.

    I will use until the product is gone but I won't be re-purchasing.

    For a mediocre product, this stuff is quite expensive. Maybelline has much better foundations in the line that aren't priced this exorbitantly.

    This foundation has medium coverage. I didn't need a lot to get the coverage I needed on my face. I'm an NW45 in MAC and the shade Coconut 95 is just a little too light and a little too orange for my skin. It looked like it was going to be a good match when I squeezed a drop out, bu once I started spreading it on my face it turned out much lighter. It's still the closest match I've found from Maybelline, but it's still not close enough to my skin tone.

    This foundation has a thick consistency and whipped texture. It feels very hydrating and cooling on the skin.

    I have combination oily skin and I thought this foundation would be good for me, but it's not. It looks lovely immediately after I apply it - it gives my skin this beautiful satin matte,soft focus finish - but after an hour it greases up like crazy. Normally my cheeks aren't oily but wearing this foundation my entire face was swimming in oil.

    With a mattifying primer like Rimmel Stay Matte, this foundation wears better but it still gets oily so quickly. And this foundation never sets, even if you powder it. If you touch your face, a lot of foundation will come off.

    I can see this working well for people with dry skin or people who aren't going to wear this foundation for an extended period of time. If you've got combination to oily skin and are planning on trying to wear this foundation all day, I don't think it'll be worth your time and money.

    Matte foundations are beautiful, but I have problems with them clinging to dry patches and problem areas. This was my first time trying a hydrating matte foundation, so I hoped that the hydrating aspect would eliminate this clinging problem. I was disappointed when it did accentuate those problem areas, but even more so that it didn't come off as a matte finish foundation for me. I find it somewhat dewy, which is odd because matte is in the name of this product. Besides the problems I mentioned above, I do like this foundation, I just don't love it. It's an average foundation in my opinion. I will probably stick with a foundation that I know works for me, one with a more liquid formula which is easier to blend.

    I was selected to test this product in exchange for my review.
    I had the opportunity to try the Dream Velvet Foundation. It glided on smoothly with the help of the blender applicator, but it felt like I was wearing something on my face all day. I prefer my foundations to blend into my skin so I can forget that I'm wearing it. I felt like I was wearing a mask all day. I will not be purchasing.

    The Classic Ivory I tried wasn't quite right for my skin tone, which is strange because most other brands I'm Classic Ivory. I found it was too pink, I'm going to give it another try with a different shade, but I'm skeptical at this point. I did like the Matte look to it, how my skin didn't look dried out, and it was easy to apply, which is why I'm still going to try again with a different shade. I'm hoping that the next shade will be a better match, and not as pink.
