The Maybelline 'Dream Satin Finish' comes in a 30ml bottle perfect for travel, will fit inside the makeup pouch or handbag. The lid is easy to remove and works well with keeping the foundation from leaking over the bottle. Made from glass, this bottle is a little heavy and could break if dropped. The product name "Dream Satin Liquid" is written on the front of the bottle, clear and easy to see from a distance, promoting the smoothness and 'satin' finish of the liquid formula. There are 8 shades of this product:
- Light Porcelain
- Sun beige
This colour range starts at very pale/fair, right down to more olive, much darker tones. However this product could have darker shades beyond Caramel.
Formula and application
The formula itself is very smooth, light and creamy. It easily blends into the skin, and doesn't need a large amount for good coverage. Is this product buildable? To an extent, however after two layers the foundation is pretty thick.
The product SHOULD provide, according to L'Oreal:
- Air-whipped, oil free liquid formula
- Provides full yet lightweight coverage.
- Luminous finish
- Won’t clog pores
- Suitable for sensitive skin
The formula lasts roughly 4-6 hours, depending on skin type. On oily skin, it will begin to separate on oily areas ever so slightly after this time, but can be rectified with a top-up, as this product does 'stick' to the skin well. The coverage is full, and feels light on the skin. The luminous finish is more matte with a slight sheen in the formula - it doesn't reflect the light or give off a radiant or dewy finish. The colours appear slightly dull or orange based, depending on the shade. In small quantities, this product can be used for a natural look, and could be used with an illuminating primer to enhance this. However overall, this foundation does not provide a complete smooth, flawless, radiant look, it is thicker and can be noticed. This is down to personal preference.
The foundation gives a perfume-like, light musk fragrance, which is very pleasant when applying (doesn't last on the skin).
Superdrug's price for this product is £7.99 (currently). This price seems pretty fitting for the formula, taking the feeling of the product on the skin, the fragrance, the result and packaging into account.
To begin, with Maybelline is one of my all time drugstore make up brands. They almost never seem to fail with my needs. 90% of the time, a new maybelline product I have purchased, I am in love with and obsessed with. I am not going to sit here and lie though because Maybelline hasn't always been up to game when it comes to their makeup.
When it comes to foundation, I never really go to Maybelline. I am usually such a huge fan of Sleek or Mac. In addition to this, I don't wear foundation because I have pretty clear skin, I'm not trying to be cocky, or sit on my high horse. But, I like to wear foundation on a night out or a meal out because even though my face is clear it can often make me look like flawless and airbrushed.
Talking, about this foundation though it is okay. It's not bad but its not amazing. The pro about this product is it makes me look quite flawless and that's why I like it.
However, a con about this product can look very cakey after a while or if to much product is applied. I do agree that a lot of foundations can have this problem. Another con that I have found about that the bottle can become very messy after awhile. It spills very easily causing the product to become messy and when taking the lid of it often goes all over my fingers which is such a pain.
It has a good packaging. I love its bottle. It looks so fragile but because of my clumsiness, I accidentally dropped mine (from waist length) for like 4 times already and it doesn't even have a crack on it. I think it's pretty sturdy enough. I also have a good control when squeezing out the product from the bottle. The squeeze nozzle is also good.
It has a somewhat creamy-liquid consistency. It's thin textured which is another reason why I like it. It doesn't look cakey. Instead, it has a velvety satin finish which looks very natural.
It blends perfectly even when mixed with a foundation from a different brand. I tried to mix it (for experimentation) with a good, local drugstore foundation and it looked and felt great. It covered my redness instantly and most of my dark spots. It also made my large pores less visible which is awesome. For the bigger blemishes, I dabbed one more layer to it and voila my skin looks flawless than ever. I bought the Light honey shade to match with my summer light tan and my skin looks healthy and glowing than ever. The Light honey shade is also yellowish based. I'm also going to try other lighter shades of the Maybelline Satin Liquid Foundation line when I lose my tan. I hope that there will also be a pink based shade.
I applied it with a good loose powder and it lasted for 8 hours which is a pretty good number. No need to do touch ups often. You can also pair it with a good primer.
It feels lightweight. It doesn't look cakey. Looks very natural. Its scent doesn't smell like alcohol rather, it smells neutral.
The only downside to this product is that it "oxidizes" after a few hours! I looked a shade darker than my current original skin tone. I found a quick fix to this by applying a lighter shade of loose powder. I'm thinking of using a lighter shade than my skin tone to see that whenever it oxidizes, it may neutralize and fit my original color. However, I think that this is also not a good idea. I should probably stick up to the lighter shade of loose powder fix. If this makeup product doesn't oxidize, I would probably rate this as an excellent product.
It is definitely non-comedogenic. I have never experienced having break outs with this product. It is also suitable for my combination skin but I think that it is more suitable to dry skin because of its satin finish. It's also easy to remove with a good makeup remover.
It only has a low SPF of 13. That's why I used a good primer with an extra number of sun protection formula for better protection.
I bought mine at Amazon for only £7.99. I've used it for 2 months already and there's still half of the product left. The price and the volume is good enough.
I purchased this product from my local Boots store when it was on offer and after hearing good reviews on the product i thought i may as well give it a try to see if all of the hype was relevant to the product - it wasn't.
When i first applied the product it seemed easy to blend and appeared to give a decent coverage on my skin which was even and gave me a clear complexion. However after the application and when it began to set i found that it turned extremely cakey on my skin, creasing in any fine lines i have and becoming patchy on my cheeks. I also found that it because really drying on my skin which made it even more patchy than beforehand. I've tried using various primers with the product to see if this has an effect on it and i've tried suing heavier moisturisers before using the foundation but the foundation still ends up drying my skin. I also found that it caused breakouts on my chin and forehead whenever i used the foundation even though i always thoroughly wash off my make up at the end of the day.
Overall i was really disappointed with this product and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone because it wouldnt be suitable for oily or dry skin and certainly isn't appropriate for my combination skin. Even though it isn't overly expensive i still consider it a waste of money and wouldn't advise buying this foundation any time soon.
I used Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid for the last few weeks as I was sent a bottle through the post as part of a competition win, I'm not sure of the shade name I used (I didn't check!) but it's what I'd call a 'Nude' or 'Natural' shade which was good for me.
The foundation is sold in a glass bottle with pump top, you need a couple or three pumps to dispense enough product for a whole face and maybe a little more if you're wearing something low cut and want to continue your foundation down your neck. I applied mine with my make up blending sponge and the texture of the liquid is perfect for that method.
My skin looks really fantastic after using this foundation but sadly the appearance doesn't stay looking as good for long, the foundation starts to look patchy and faded very quickly (within two hours, maybe less than that) - I had applied concealer one day over a blemish and was mortified when I spotted my face in the bank to see my foundation had decided to wear away in that area so my slightly lighter concealer was showing through. Not a good look!
This is a semi medium coverage foundation in my opinion which doesn't last long enough for it to be useful, that's a real shame as otherwise it's fab as the colour is good and the foundation applies beautifully. I wish the dewy appearance of my skin would stay for longer as after using Dream Satin there is definitely a visual improvement to the tone of my skin - unfortunately I can't trust it to remain on my skin where it should be so I won't be paying the £8 for a new bottle now mine has run out.
This foundation slides on easily and blends really well. The pump makes it very easy to use and you can see how many pumps you need to cover your whole face meaning that nothing is wasted. For a short while, it looks flawless and it is so light you can hardly tell that you have make up on. However, it does not last very long at all. After a couple of hours it goes patchy and starts to slide off the face and it sits unevenly on dry skin. It is much better suited to oily skin but it may need some powder to help it stay longer.
The range of colours means that it is very easy to pick one that suits your skin colour. They also stock some of the palest colours which other brands do not stock which is very helpful!
I think that this foundation is best suited to oily, blemish free skin as it has a very light coverage and doesn't hide blemishes.
Generally this foundation is not recommended for oily skin types, however my skin is combination and I find this foundation fantastic for all skin types. The foundation is extremely easy to apply and looks natural blending easily on the skin. It is also a prime base for applying further make up such as blush and eye shadow. Additionally, not a lot of the foundation needs to be used in application to achieve a full and even coverage and when in the correct shade for your skin type doesn't give a cakey or orange look. The feel of the foundation is also as the name suggests of a satin touch and certainly gives a pore less look whilst effectively covering blemishes. The foundation does also not clog pores leading to breakouts or feel heavy and is easily removable with any make up remover.
However, my one problem with this foundation is that sometimes the coverage begins to fade throughout the day which is not ideal and in comparison to the 24 hour lasting foundation the lasting effect of the Dream Satin Liquid does not compare. That being said this foundation is notably lighter and can be easily reapplied throughout the day.
I have been using this foundation for around 3 months now and have found it to be a fantastic purchase! This foundation often doesn't transfer on to clothes either giving it an edge over many other foundations. The overall result of this foundation is that is makes my skin look and feel smoother, exactly what I seek in a foundation.
I bought this foundation purely as it was on offer in Boots. It should have been £7.99, I paid just £5.99 for it. I have very pale skin so I was pleased that this range catered for paler skin tones. There was a good range of shades available to choose from.
The foundation comes presented in a pump bottle, which is great as it minimises wastage. The bottle is strong and sturdy and overall the packaging is pretty good.
The foundation itself is of a good consistency. It dispenses easily and it is easy to apply. I find that the foundation applies even better over moisturised skin, so it's always a good idea to apply a thin layer of moisturiser beforehand. You can also use a primer too, if you wish.
I use one pump at a time until I have built up my desired level of coverage. The foundation blends well into the skin and covers spots and imperfections well. Unfortunately it doesn't last all day, even with a primer underneath. It sort of slides off my skin, although I do have very oily skin which is probably why that happens. However, better quality foundations don't seem to have a problem staying put. Maybe my skin just needs a better quality foundation to fulfil its needs?
I would say this foundation is perhaps better suited to dry/ normal skin types. People with oily skin (like mine) should avoid this one as it does nothing for oil control. I had to apply blotting powder multiple times a day to absorb the shine that this foundation left behind. Also, it aggravated my acne around my chin area, which was another annoying thing as that meant I needed yet MORE foundation to cover it up!
This is a cheap foundation and it does the job but it certainly isn't for oily skin. I wouldn't re purchase it for this reason. I still have it and I use it on my days off when I don't have anything planned. For work and for days out I think I will stick to my Mac Studio Fix foundation in NW13 which is excellent for oily skin.
Worth a try on offer as perhaps it would suit you. It didn't suit me though.
So I decided to try this foundation because it was described to leave the skin looking 'poreless', which appealed to me, and it also seemed to give good coverage when I tested it. So I bought a bottle in the lightest shade (I'm blonde and very pale). My first realisation is that for the lightest shade, the foundation was very orange. It left my face being a completely different colour to my neck and ears! Secondly, it gave my skin a very weird and undesirable texture..it never seemed to dry, and it left my skin looking bumpy and strange, not poreless. But to give it the benefit of the doubt, I finished my face and left it on. Less than 2 hours later, I checked my makeup in my mirror - I wish I hadn't. The foundation had creased and cracked where I had smiled, and had collected around my nose, leaving weird orange patches on the apples of my cheeks and not much makeup anywhere else. I also had to spend majority of the day making sure not to rest my face on anything, or touch my face, in fear that the never-drying foundation would smear all over the place. So basically, the colour, staying power, and finish of the foundation is not for me at all. I have DRY skin and this made me so oily, so I dread to think the results a person with oily skin would get with this! I'm not sure if it's just me, or if everyone's had this reaction. But I won't be buying again!

I am a big fan of Maybelline products. Despite the annoying jingle that they use on their adverts, I think their products are generally good and offer good value for money. That's why I had no hesitation in trying this foundation. I have not really got brand loyalty with anything, so I happy to try anything and I was happy that I tried this.
The foundation comes in a really handy squeezy bottle that makes it easy to measure the amount that you are getting out in one go and means that you don't end up squeezing out too much and wasting it. The bottle is a see through one, which means you can see the colour of the product inside before you buy, which helps with matching skin tone. I have found that the colour of the product through the bottle is actually a good match for it on your skin, which is helpful
It is available in seven shades, ranging from the very, very pale to the very, very dark, which means that you are bound to find a colour that suits your skin tone.
The thing I love most about this foundation is that it is a really light and airy mousse, which means that it is really easy to blend in and it doesn't feel at all heavy on your skin. I can't stand wearing make up when I feel like my face is caked and this is not the case at all with this one. It really does feel light and it makes a nice base for other make-up, with the added bonus of it helps other make-up to stay on longer and last longer too.
The foundation is £7.99 at the time of writing, which I think is really good value for money and I would definitely recommend it.
I absolutely love this product I used to use constantly and used with Dream Matte Mousse it's flawless, it's full coverage, I have freckles and with using this nobody knows. The only downfall to this product is that it does not agree with my skin, after using this I get small under the skin bump on my forehead and cheeks, however my friends use it and it doesn't happen to them so it just must be my skin type.
I have tried many foundations in the past few years, most of them being drugstore/cheap ones. One day I came across this in the shop and decided it was worth the purchase as I had been having problems with my previous foundation anyway and was looking to change it anyway. The colour of this foundation actually went surprisingly well with my skin tone. I find it every hard to find foundation colours which go with my natural skin tone but this one went exceptionally well. I loved the finish that it have my skin, when I had just applied the foundation it looked flawless and radiant. This foundation helped to cover my imperfections pretty easily also. The only problems are if you apply too much of this foundation it can become very cakey and fake looking very quickly. If you only wear a thin layer however it looks a lot better. I also struggled to find a way to make this foundation lasts all day. I find this liquid foundation to begin to rub off and wear away as the day goes on. I love this foundation but believe you could get a lot better by only spending slightly more. The look of this bottle of foundation is very classy, the bottle is easy to use and helps you get all of the left over product out easily. The colours that this foundation are very varied so you should check before buying as they are every likely to have your exact colour
I use to be a big fan of Maybelline cosmetics. I wouldn't say I would never try them again but there are various products I would not recommend and this product would fit nicely into that category for me personally.
I have unfortunately oily skin that is thankfully under control through trial and error and due to this products 'lightweight' claim I thought it might be good for skin such as mine, but it created more problems.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a dream satin liquid foundation that aims to be lightweight due to the product being air-whipped. This should aid to give you a poreless finished appearance. When it is applied it should also give the appearance of luminous skin.
The claim on the products is that it will not clog up your skin and is good for sensitive skin.
This is oil free, fragrance free, and has been tested under dermatological control.
WHY I CHOOSE IT
I chose this product because of the points raised above. I wanted a light product without it being oil based and the fact it was great for sensitive skin and with eight shades to chose from I thought what could I lose?
HOW TO APPLY
An even layer applied to the skin for full coverage using your fingertips.
This claims to glide on lightly and effortlessly being a mousse liquid but for me it came out easy from the pump bottle and seemed light and with the mousse effect so far so good but when I applied it to my skin it seemed thicker than I imagined it would be. As I tried to evenly spread the liquid over my skin it seemed to become harder to spread because it thickened up and almost 'set' so I couldn't spread to any other area and found my adding more foundation.
I wouldn't say this gave an even coverage, even though I checked and checked before leaving my room, I had good friends mentioned that it looked clumped in one area ot not blended in another.
If you apply too little it doesn't do anything but if you apply to make it even then it caked very quickly.
When I did manage to put the product on fast enough to spread so it didn't set and evenly spread it I found that the product cracked whether I had applied it well or not.
Throughout the day I looked like I had cracked skin and the makeup affected the blusher I was wearing.
Over a period of time, the product did actually clog up my skin and I found that all the hard work getting my skin well balance this made my skin oil which obviously led to spots.
To remove this product I used soapy hot water as normal but the flannel looked like it had a layer of thick cream come away, I was a bit horrified there was that much on my skin for something so light and I found it took ages to make sure it all had been removed unlike the ease of other foundations.
I was gutted and would not recommend this.
