Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation Review

I recently picked this foundation after I became very intrigued when seeing it absolutely everywhere from blogs, YouTube and greeting me whenever I entered Boots or Superdrug I just assumed it would be rude not to cave; so that's what I did and I don't think I will ever look back.


(I personally love the packaging)

 Mine's in Ivory 10 which I believe is the lightest shade, the undertone is more of a yellow which I usually avoid because my skin is more of a pink, but it is easily blended and leaves a nice soft silky finish very skin like natural looking and even coverage, it is definitely build-able to a medium coverage, It feels extremely light on the skin I suspect this is obviously due to the fact that it has a liquid like consistency and is apparently "12 times finer than Maybelline Dream Satin" which I did not personally like.



The dropper is solid and distributes just about the right amount (very technical sounding, I know) I applied it with my fingers which I was rather reluctant about to begin with, but most blogs I read  recommended doing and so did the instructions so I bit the bullet and did so and I can definitely see why as if by magic, it worked and left an even finish, I hate cleaning my beauty blender and brushes so this is definitely a winner for me. It apparently contains 'concentrated concealing pigments' and they're the secret behind the fact its basically the Harry Potter of the foundation world; great coverage without feeling cakey and is extremely natural looking- Hogwart's eat your heart out.

For the price this product is definitely worth try. Warning: You may possibly fall in love and become obsessed.


It has defintely quickly become my favourite foundation due to the fact I hate the feeling of foundation yet this feels like you're not wearing make up yet gives a great coverage and is a perfect everyday base. It's currently on offer at Superdrug and Boots so now is the perfect time if there ever was one to grab it!

  2. Wow, this sounds amazing and I will definitely give this a try! I've seen this foundation everywhere too but I thought the coverage would be too light for me but it sounds great! x

  10. Sounds good, I try so many foundations though which really don't cooperate with my combination/oily/blemished/annoying skin! Will definitely give it a go! x

    1. I have dry skin, but I think with a good powder like rimmel stay matte or something, this would work fabulously! I cannot recommend it enough for a drug store foundation x

  25. 90% of the time, I'm using my fingers to apply my foundation :) It's quick and easy and the foundations I love most are liquidy so fingers are best :)

  29. It sounds really good! Like you said, whenever I walk into Boots or Superdrug there it is haha. If you don't like the feel of foundation and ever need a backup I love the Bourjois CC Cream! It's quite similar to how you described this to be :) Great post! x
