Maybelline Dream Matte Velvet Foundation*

Maybelline Dream Matte Velvet

Ok, so the weather today is beyond gorgeous. Apparently it’s warmer in Edinburgh than it is in Barcelona, which doesn’t happen too regularly, so I’ve been doing the sensible thing and enjoying every second of it! So, as you can imagine, when I’m out and about, I want to look super fresh-faced and natural, not like I’m wearing a tonne of makeup!

A new find for me has been Maybelline’s brand new Dream Matte Velvet Foundation – a whipped gel formula which provides medium-to high coverage with a super natural finish.  It’s a really awesome option if you’re wanting a super natural but polished look, and it comes in seven colour options. I’ve been apply a tiny amount of the formula using my fingers, blending it into freshly moisturised skin. It’s amazing for covering redness or outbreaks without looking heavy, and all I need is a quick dusting of bronzer and a slick of mascara and I’m goo to go!

Maybelline Dream Matte Velvet Foundation is priced at £7.99 and is available here (UK) and here (US).

      Hi Lucie,
      Thanks so much for your comment! It’s a really good laster – a teeny bit of oxidation (nothing a touch of bronzer can’t fix) and I got 7 hours before I needed to touch up! xxx
