I’ve tried countless liquid foundations from various brands over the years, but I haven’t had much luck with them. In between returning to a ‘safer’ option (with mixed results), I’ve persevered with liquid foundations, mainly because of other people wearing, talking and/or blogging about them.
And finally – for the first time ever – I’ve discovered a liquid foundation that works for me, and that’s enough to make it a ‘star product’ alone.
Maybelline’s Dream Satin Liquid Foundation in ‘Light Porcelain’ (004) is an ideal shade for my (very) pale skin, though it appears darker in the glass bottle; in natural light, this is a fairly pale foundation, without a trace of orange.
I use around 2-3 small pumps of foundation for the entire face, which is just the right amount considering that the foundation has a smooth and creamy consistency that blends effortlessly into the skin.
Once applied, the foundation provides a very natural light coverage, which is perfect for summer. Alternatively, the product can be built up, without feeling heavy and/or cakey in texture — In fact; it feels extra lightweight on the skin, making it suitable for daily use.
As you can see from the photos (above), the foundation evens out the skin and conceals any skin imperfections or blemishes. The product offers a dewy finish for dry skin, but may require a touch of powder for combination-oily skin.
Overall, Maybelline’s Dream Satin Liquid Foundation is fantastic, certainly in terms of the price (£6 on offer) and the finished look. It is my current go-to foundation for everyday wear, and I will 100% repurchase.
