Review: Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam

Saturday 11 February 2012

I have not had a good week at all. Work has been beyond horrid (I won't get into it but I actually burst into tears at my desk on Friday!) and I'm getting really sick of feeling like I'm trying my level best and still getting nowhere.

I'm just feeling so flat at the moment, the only thing that could possibly cheer me up was another random make up purchase.

So I ended up caving in and trying the new launch from Maybelline. I heard word of this product late last year and at first, I couldn't wait for it to launch.

Then, I tried a tester when it finally landed in stores and I just... Didn't like it. I thought it was really liquidy and it didn't seem to give any real coverage. Plus, I was really annoyed because the shop had testers, but no product to actually buy. Is that weird or what?!? What is the point of having a tester if people can't actually buy any? But I thought I'd had a lucky escape in the end as I wasn't impressed by trialling it and I also read a few reviews where people said the coverage was really bad and they hated it.

However, I can safely say there must have been some kind of an issue with the first tester I tried, because seeing it again today, curiousity got the better of me and I tested some again.

I want to like it, because I love Dream Matte Mousse, but that can sometimes be too drying. And like it I did this time. It seemed to give far superior coverage to the tester I tried before- still light but much more pigmented and gave a really nice, smooth finish.

Although the foam texture takes some getting used to, and is very liquid when you start rubbing it in, I did like the light, glowing finish it gave my skin.

With it on, skin feels really smooth. It doesn't need any powder on top and it gives a demi-matte finish, which is less dense than the mousse.

So I've gone from being desperate to try it, to being initially unimpressed, to actually quite liking it.

I think it may well be more suited to the summer time, but although the finish is average to nice, if you want an easily blendable, lightweight base, it's a good one to have in your bag of tricks.
