My biggest question with Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation is whether you really need that Dream Blender tool to go with it. The answer is no, you don’t, BUT, it worked much better than I thought it would and gave a very smooth finish although it’s a little clumsy round the eye area, the only place I needed to smooth out with my finger.
I’m not a matte foundation fan at all – I think if you have the skin of a peach or a newborn then it’s wonderful, but for older skin, it’s not the most flattering option I don’t think. However, I’m wearing Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation right now and have to say that the coverage is excellent. L’Oreal foundations are always good; they have formulas down to perfection whether it’s at the top end or the high street end, so I wouldn’t expect any less, but bearing in mind it’s priced at £7.99, it’s definitely punching above it price.
There are 6 shades (I know, not enough), in Natural Ivory, Ivory, Fawn, Sand, Sun Beige and Nude (Nude is shown above). The Dream Velvet Blender is £4.99 – I don’t think you’d be disappointed with it, but it’s not essential to the product.
