Maybelline has begun the year with a bang! A new collection featuring a Liquid mousse foundation, a matte compact and a range of blushes! What more could we ask for? Well, how about the eye tattoos and the bouncy blushes??? i’m so impatient for those…I know, I know, I’m greedy….Sigh…Let me comfort myself by buying what’s available atleast in the mean time 😉 😉 So here I present, the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder!!! Ta-daaaaaa!!! (Yes, you have to applaud 😉 )

- New, Air-Soft Matte Perfection
- Won’t Clog Pores
- Dermatologist Tested
- Applicator & mirror inside!
My take on Maybelline Dream Matte Powder Foundation: –
- Packaging: Maybelline has been concentrating on the packaging a lot I see..First the Liquid mousse foundation which has a pump dispenser which can be locked…and now this compact which is no ordinary pan although it looks so. This baby has a panel on the lower part of the compact which swings out to present a mirror and a puff applicator. Cool right? The front panel is a see through which I like and this entire compact is so easy to carry around albeit a bit larger due to the fancy packaging.
- Price:Â 475INR
- Quantity:Â 9gms
- Coverage: Its a really good formula which mattifies my skin perfectly. I use it alone or even to set my foundation. I also use it with the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation and for touch ups as well.
- Texture: As described by Maybelline, this is air soft and goes on like a dream. But this may not be the right compact for duper dry skin since it makes the skin REALLY matte….so the skin starts feeling a bit flaky. For me, this is perfect for my combi skin and during summers when all the elements decide to pour oil on my face… 🙂
- Staying Power: This blots out the oil and keeps my skin matte for atleast 2-3hrs…if not more.
My Verdict: I f you have oily or combi skin, then this is a good investment. But incase one has dry skin, I wouldn’t advice the purchase since.

Would I repurchase: I don’t think this will ever get over to begin with. But I like this for summers and would stick to Lakme Perfect Radiance compact during winters when my skin gets dry.
