Maybelline NY Dream Satin Liquid Foundation (004 Light Porcelain)

Air-whipped liquid provides perfecting coverage for 100% poreless skin.
Full yet lightweight coverage, ideal for normal skin.
Satin perfect, luminous finish.
Oil-free, fragrance-free, tested under dermatological control.

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.

      I’ve been using it for quite a while and I’ve experienced no skin issues, no breakouts and skin seems well hydrated, I definitely suffered with more dry skin when using the mousse version of this product. I know that a lot of brands make claims, but Maybelline seem to be correct in this case – it doesn’t clog pores, suitable for sensitive skin and oil-free, fragrance-free, tested under dermatological control. Then again, everyone is different! What foundation do you typically use? 🙂

      It is so difficult to find a good foundation and everyone is different, so it takes a lot of trial and error, but I’m glad that I’ve found this for now. Let me know if you do have the opportunity to try it! x
