maybelline dream cushion review

New for spring 2017: Maybelline Dream Cushion

I can’t remember the last time I had a makeup-related dream.

Or a dream where I even realized I was wearing makeup.

Can you? Have you ever had a dream where you’re putting on your makeup? I wish I did. Dream makeup… I think I’d like that.

New Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation, which is coming in January in eight shades that are $16 each, has the word “dream” right in the name.

Cushion compacts like this one have been over the place lately! When you open the compact, instead of there being a pan of cream or powder, there’s a sponge pre-soaked with liquid foundation. You take a puff applicator, a Beauty Blender or a brush, dab it on the sponge, and then apply that to your face.

I haven’t tried many of them yet, but MAC Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact is my cushion compact holy grail at the moment. It’s $38 though. It’s lightweight, medium coverage, and it beautifully blurs my pores. And it doesn’t budge on my skin.

But I like Maybelline Dream Cushion as well.

I definitely like the much lower price, but it doesn’t cover quite as well as the MAC one. It has a more satiny, uber-natural finish, through which I can still see my 40-ish pores and freckles.

If I were still in college or in my early 20s, I’d be all over this in a heartbeat. The coverage is sheerer than the MAC one, and it doesn’t blur my pores as well, but on the flip side…my skin still looks like real skin.

Seriously, for a drugstore face product, I think this is really, really good.

Oh — you’ll probably want to set it with a powder, because it tends to start scooting around and seeking out my fine lines after a few hours (especially around my mouth).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. TGIF!!! 🎅
