Purchasing the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation was definitely influenced by quite a few different vloggers and bloggers raving about this product. Foundation is definitely something that I like to chop and change as I haven’t found my Holy Grail formula yet, but this one is almost there except for one small issue.
First off, this is a super thin formula, a little thicker than water. I had just fallen in love with the Beauty Blender when I purchased this, but it is definitely not made for sponge application and you will literally just soak up all the product. I like to dab some on the back of my hand with the absolutely ridiculous “dropper” (which I’ll get to in a minute) and then apply with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.
The “dropper”, which isn’t really a dropper as you can’t suck up product with it, is a bit ridiculous. You don’t need much of this foundation, but I still need to dip and dab like 5 times to get enough with the stupid little applicator. I suppose I could pour it out, but then I’m afraid I’d get too much. But still it is a nice foundation so this isn’t a deal breaker.
The one issue is that the lightest shade is slightly too dark for me which is a huge bummer. I just wish they had a better shade selection. Once its blended out and powdered, its not too made, but it’s just not a good match.
Bare skin on the left and foundation on the right, you can see it gives a nice even, natural looking coverage. It really is a lovely silky foundation!
Have you tried Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation? Thoughts on the dreaded “dropper”?
