Review: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse in Caramel Dark 2

Friday, April 17, 2009


I mentioned in my Maybelline Lash Stiletto post that I purchased Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse for 6.49( 9.49 with a $3 off coupon) and I would do a review on it because...
This is why women get really mad at drugstore foundation.
Seriously, I don't know where to start. This is your new foundation Maybelline? I know you all have been focusing big time on the mascaras but, seriously, this what you came up with?
I had to return it....It didn't work...Here's why....
I use Maybelline Mineral Power Foundation in Caramel Dark 2, love it...one of the best mineral foundations in drugstores, real talk.
I use Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Caramel Dark 2 occasionally in the Winter for a full coverage look and love it.
So when purchasing Dream Liquid Mousse, I automatically picked up Caramel Dark 2.
It didn't match...ok...so, went back to do a exchange but the next color up, Cocoa Dark 3, was too dark...way darker. I mean, brown girls come in more that TWO shades, Maybelline. TWO SHADES... and reference the website on that too...TWO SHADES for brown girls, people. There are five 'light' shades and four 'medium' shades( which some women of color will be able to wear)...have we regressed in the makeup world?
This why women run to makeup counters, Sephora, Ulta,etc. instead of saving a couple of dollars at the drugstore is because there is not a variety of colors in foundations if you are brown skin.
But on the positive side, its a full coverage foundation, if that's what you looking for you are going to get it. It doesn't lie there. I guess that's the 'airbrush' look claim in the advertisement. It felt great going on, I was excited to have it but...It felt like it 1985 again and I watching my mom mix foundations to get her color...
The calender says 2009.
Anyone else have this? Let me know!

I have this and hate it! I much prefer their Matte Mousse foundation to this one. I got a sample in Glamour, so luckily I was able to find the right shade, but the feel isn't friendly. Too bad the sample was too small for my whole face.

What an awesome blog you have! I like how you review so many products.

I was going to try this stuff too! I would need the darkest shade, but it's full-coverage and I would hate that!

You know I work at Ulta and I was putting this stuff away last night and was like, ummmm where are the shades for people of COLOR! lol! Ridic! I don't wear foundation, but if I were to go and look for some NOT at MAC I'd be pissed because there is NO selection! ugh!

i have this foundation in Cocoa Dark 3. it's a perfect match for me and i enjoy the finish, but it doesn't stay on forever - i would have to re-touch. overall i do love it.

You know, I tried this once on my face and I hated it so instead of taking it back, I'm going to use it as body makeup...I like the Dream Matte Mousse way better than the Liquid Mousse.

I LOVE this foundation! (and the Mousse in the compact as well. it matches my skin perfectly. I was a Prescriptives girl, and used Cocoa. This Cocoa is better!!!!
