Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation in Ivory Review, Before & After shots :)

Hey everyone :) hope you all are well! Today's post is going to be on Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation in shade Ivory. I have had this on my makeup desk for some time, and hadn't really used it since I bought it for whatever reason. I bought it for £7.99 at Boots :)

I've been wearing this for about 3 weeks now and I really do think it's great! As I'm quite pale and got the lightest shade which is Ivory, I was worried that it might turn out to be a bit orangey as it looks a bit dark in the bottle, but I can positively say I am far from orange ha thank god :) I find that the best way to apply it is by using a foundation brush, I love using the MAC 190 but you can buy alternatives at places like Boots or Superdrug but they are still quite pricey - link 

The foundation feels really lightweight on the skin and doesn't get dry after a couple hours like some foundations do. I only need one pump and that covers my whole face with ease. It blends really well into the skin and I'd say it gives me a confident medium coverage, but I always top it with MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC20 which works best for me and gives me a great full coverage (along with concealer under the eyes)

I think this foundation gives my face a better whole colour, as I have fairly red cheeks :( so I have a better skin tone. Some people may not like this but I personally like a foundation that makes my face one colour so I can then use blushes/bronzers/highlighters etc to play around with!

I can't believe I'm showing you this haha!

In the photo shown above of me with the foundation I have moisturiser and primer on so it applies a lot easier, I also have a cheeky bit of concealer under my eyes before the foundation. I'd give it a good 8.5/10 as I think they could do a few more shades to suite people better. I'd love to know if anyone else has tried this? And what do you think of it? I hope you all have a great day xxx
