I’ve been a fan of cushion foundations for a while now. I love their light coverage, dewy finishe, and the fact that they’re usually quite an affordable base option. So, when Maybelline sent over their brand new Dream Cushion, I was rather exited.
Packaged in a dinky little compact, the cushion foundation is everything you need to create a flawless base. There is even a handy little puff to apply the foundation, in case you don’t like using your fingers.
Honestly, if you told me this came from a premium brand, I’d happily believe you. The colour (1 Natural Ivory) is the lightest of seven shades, so if you’re super light or dark skinned, matching might be an issue. The formula is quite sheer though, so you can hopefully make it work.
With an SPF 20, it’s a fabulous choice for a summer foundation, and I just adore the light, glowy coverage. It perfects skin without covering it up, and it is the perfect base for blushes and bronzers – never looking streaky or too heavy. I’ve been wearing it daily, and it’s become a real fave!
