I found an amazing foundation from Maybelline. At one point or another, all women have used a foundation to help cover the flaws in their skin. For me finding the right foundation, one that isn’t cakey or dry, flakes off or leaves a residue behind is important. Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation is my go-to foundation I’m using right now because it makes me look and feel great!

Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation + Blending Brush

What I love about the Dream Velvet Foundation is how great my skin feels when wearing it. It’s seriously as velvety as it claims to be. For only $11 bucks this hydrating matte finish foundation (yes matte finish) is not chalky feeling at all. It’s super soft and keeps my skin soft all day long.

One thing I deal with a lot is very dry itchy skin. So using this foundation is a huge plus for me. It has a mousse like texture to it and honestly a little goes a long way (no need to use tons) as it seriously spreads very well. I find my issue with many foundations is either they cake on, leave a high volume residue or leave a super shiny afterglow which makes me look awful.


Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation is extremely hydrating and perfect for oily skin like mine, yet it’s not greasy at all. It’s by far my favorite newest foundation on the market right now, giving me a flawless complexion and I can get about six hours wear out of it before it starts to fade or rub off, and that’s without sealing my makeup which I don’t do very often.


Dream Blender Foundation Blending Sponge is amazing. Now I don’t use it on my face to completely blend in my foundation as I said in the video, I like to use my fingertips. I think blending with my fingertips gives me better coverage and no matter how many sponges or brushes I’ve used, fingers are best.

However, I do use the Dream Blender for my eyes and hard to reach places. The sponge is lightweight and easy to clean. Just rinse with warm soapy water and let dry. What I love is the tip. It’s a soft sponge that truly blends into the corners of my eye to get that perfect coverage to hide my bags and dark circles I get from a lack of sleep. Combine the Dream Blender with the Dream Velvet Foundation and this duo rocks.

It’s a must-have for your make-up bag!

You can purchase Maybelline Dream Velvet and Sponge at any local store that sells make-up like Shopper’s, Walmart, Superstore, Sally’s, Target, Save on Foods and other retail outlets.
