I’ve always wanted to try a beauty blender so I was super excited when Chick Advisor sent me the new Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation and the Dream Blender to review.
Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation
The Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation application is pretty easy and it blends well into the skin. As advertised, the initial finish is matte on my skin. But after a few hours of having it on, I noticed a bit of sheen on my face. This is the part that concerns me. I want a “glow,” yes. But I am not sure I need a “sheen.” My skin is oily enough without having an extra shine to it. But like I said, the application is pretty nice. I like the fact that it’s more of a mousse than a liquid so it’s great to use with the blender. I think I will try this product again, but I’m going to try it in a different shade to see if that was the cause of it looking weird on me after wearing it for a couple hours. I tested Natural Beige – but I think this product is worth purchasing so I’ll buy it in Caramel to see if it’s a better fit.
Maybelline New York Dream Blender
I am really getting used to the Maybelline New York Dream Blender. I’ve always wanted to try a beauty blender as I heard it creates a better finish than just using your fingers. But the reason I haven’t already tried it, is because the ones from Sephora are so darn expensive. But the Maybelline New York Dream Blender is only $7.99 (CAD), so you don’t have to break the budget to give it a try. It’s worth the try. At first I was concerned that it used up too much product, but after a few days of using it, I got the hang of it. It does create a flawless, smooth finish. I love using it in the creases of my nose, between my brows and along my temples – all those spots that we sometimes overlook when just using our fingers. Plus it’s easy to wash with just a bit of soap and it fits perfectly in my lipstick stand. LOL! I’ll definitely continue using the Maybelline New York Dream Dream Blender. The price is right and it creates a great finish.
