Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish Foundation Review

The only thing I loved about oily skin is that the foundation spreads and blends in really easily without leaving a patch behind. When I had dry skin in winters, I really find it hard to make my skin hydrated and smooth. I had always been impressed by Airbrush technique though I never got the chance to try it but when I saw the word ‘Airbrush Finish’ on this foundation I know I had to get it. Today I am going to discuss my experience with Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish Foundation. I got the shade Pure Beige Medium for my fair skin.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Airbrush Finish Foundation comes in a clear glass bottle with a beige colored pump dispenser. You just need to twist the pump a bit and press it to dispense the product. The pump dispenser dispenses the right amount of foundation and does not lead to wastage of the product. The shade name and number are written at the front of the bottle. The packaging comes wrapped in a plastic wrapper to ensure that the product has not been opened or used. Well I would not consider the packaging ‘travel friendly’ as it has no lid and I would not take the risk of creating it a mess in my bag. Though the pump would not get pressed all by itself still I would not love to carry it in my bag. The packaging is fairly simple and subtle.

The texture of the foundation is soft and smooth with liquid mousse like consistency. The consistency is fairly thick when compared to other liquid foundations. Before applying foundation, always make sure that you moisturize your skin well to create a perfect base. The foundation can be easily applied with a brush or fingers. It gets spread easily and blends effortlessly into the skin. It offers great coverage with only a small amount. It settles into a soft, smooth airbrushed finish without sinking into the pores. I do not need to use a primer to get this effect. It evens out my skin tone really well and hides all the redness and minor flaws. It lightens the scars I have due to acne but does not hide it properly so I do need to use a concealer. It leaves my skin looking slightly dewy yet natural. I chose the shade ‘Pure Beige Madium 2’ which is a bit darker than my usual choices of shades but it gives a lovely warm, natural and healthy look to my skin without giving any whitish cast. Longevity of the foundation is pretty. It stays put on my oily skin for a good 5-6 hours before it starts wearing off but if you use a primer underneath then it will last longer. In order to set the foundation, I apply compact powder gently all over my face (If you have dry skin then you might skip this step!). It does not oxidize and feels light on the skin. 

My favorite way of applying this foundation is to apply it with a stippling brush and then blend everything out with a wet sponge. This way it gives a natural, airbrushed finish with medium to full coverage. It does not melt or transfer easily. I have oily, acne prone skin and I have not faced any adverse reactions whilst using it.
