New Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation 04 Pure Beige
It’s been a very long time I wrote a review. I am really happy to be back. Finally, all my exams are over. I did a huge makeup haul recently. I really don’t like picking up drugstore foundations as I always find it very difficult to get a good shade match (I am around NC42 in Mac). But, I somehow wanted to try something new and ended up buying the new Maybelline Dream Satin Skin foundation.
Let’s see how much it fared for me.

My Experience with New Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation 04 Pure Beige
Packaging: The Dream Satin Skin foundation comes in a glass bottle packaging. The glass bottle is transparent and comes with light beige colored plastic cover. There is a pump dispenser provided with the bottle which is very convenient to use, one can easily take out the right amount of product for use. Overall, the packaging is quite heavy but the cap being tight makes it comfortable for travel.
Shade: The foundation is available in 5 shades and I picked up the darkest shade O4 (pure beige). It is a pure beige color. I really wished it had some yellow undertones to suit my skin tone. The shade looks a bit dark on my skin tone which I neutralize with a yellowish compact powder. I really dint like the beige base color against my warm yellow skin tone.
Formulation: The consistency of the foundation is slightly thick but easy to blend. It blends easily with a sponge, brush or with hands. It feels quite dewy on the skin. I have combination skin and I noticed shine after 3 hours of wear time. I definitely recommend setting the foundation with compact to avoid shine. The foundation has SPF 24 with PA++ protection.
Coverage: The coverage of the foundation isn’t very high. It does cover up light redness and uneven areas of the skin quite well. If you have dark spots you would definitely require concealer to get a flawless finish.
Staying power: It lasts up to 4 hours and after that slowly fades away. Priming your skin prior to application of the foundation and also setting it with a compact powder after application can increase longevity of the product.
What I like about New Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation 04 Pure Beige?
- Sturdy packaging
- Comes with a pump dispenser
- Contains SPF
- It does not feel heavy on the skin.
- Blends easily
- It feels quite moisturizing on the skin.
What I don’t like about New Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation 04 Pure Beige
- Limited shade selection
- The foundation contains SPF so it doesn’t photograph well.
- It will not suit oily skin
- It is not long staying
Final words: Overall, this is an average foundation and works best for normal to dry and combination skin. I would not recommend it for oily skinned beauties. If you are on a budget and find a good shade match then you can give this foundation a try. The shade range is very limited for Indian skin tone which is very disappointing.
