I first bought dream matte mousse about a year ago and I fell in love. The colours were perfect, the application was very easy and it was nice to wear. It blended well into my skin and it was easy to put bronzer on top, it also acted like a concealer for the few spots I had missed. It was all going well and I honestly thought I had found one I could wear for years and years, until my skin became seriously oily on my t-zone. It no longer sits in my skin very well, ending up with make-up all... (read more)

I started using this mousse a while ago, and at first it seemed very good. The coverage is good and the texture is very light, and doesnt feel like your waring any. However I found out that it was making me break out, and had reactions because of my sensitive skin. As time goes on both me and a friend has found that when applying the foundation, it starts 'crumbling' which sounds odd for a mousse, but it would get all over my clothes and hair. Overall a decent foundation for lightness and... (read more)

Ive used this product for a few years. Its Matte, stays on longer than any other and looks flawless. I always had greasy skin up to my 30s when i started using Dream Matte Mouse. This stops any spots appearing as not at all greasy. People who have had the flaky skin after probably have dry skin to begin with or become dry from much use and not enough moisturising. If i didnt mousturise yes it could look flaky. But for very greasy to normal skin i couldnt recommend anything better product. I... (read more)

I love this foundation, I use it every single day. It stay on when you sweat and everything. The only thing is sometimes my face gets really dry and when I put this on it makes my face look weird, like flaky. But if you put a little lotion on first and then put the foundation on it looks good and stays on without looking flaky. (read more)

A friend recommended this to me because I spend so much money on mac cover up makeup. matte mousse is affordable and last over 8 hours. I also put clinque powder over the maybelline matte mousse to enchance the beauty. The only problem is the products sells out fast at CVS and Walgreens. (read more)

The mousse did not look nice on my skin. It looked really blotchy and dry, particularly flaky around my forehead and nose. I don't normally have problems with my complexion but this made me look worse! I was actually embarrassed to be seen out looking like that so I went out after two days use and bought a different product. I would expect this from a cheap inferior product; but Dream Matte Mousse has been well publicised and I expected a lot more than I got. I haven't bought this brand name... (read more)

I have really good skin and I rarely get dry skin or spots but after I used this product for a while I started to notice my skin getting dry and flaky on my T-zone, I also started getting spots on my cheeks. However if I moisturise my face twice a day, and put a liquid foundation on as a base it does look good. it has good staying power and stays on during exercise and when it rains it stays quite well, it doesn't make my face shiny at all at its easy to put blusher/bronzer on top of without...

I didn't like Dream Matte Mousse at all! It was good the first couple of days, but then slowly my skin started to become very very dry. I tried all sorts of solutions to stop my dry skin but nothing has worked so far. I brought the foundation about 3 months ago, and stopped using it about 1 month ago...but still my skin is very dry.

badically, if you have dry skin DO NOT USE THIS. i used this a year or two ago, not really paying attention to getting a foundation to match my skin type (i didn't know a lot about make up at this time). some of my friends used it and it looked great on them so i thought i'd try it. it did give lovely coverage at first..but i started to notice that this was drying my skin out. it dried my skin SO BAD. i can't explain how horrible it became. it exaggerated my dry patches, and made the rest of...

The best I have ever used, brilliant price in fact I would pay more for it. Easy light coverage, lasts for over 14 hours and doesn't smear or wear off in the wind or rain. Lasts forever, such a nice feeling when you touch it like a thick slightly moist powder and so breathable on the skin, perfect for oily and dry skin because it soaks up the oils and moistens the dry areas I will definitely stay with this one I have been using it for months and it hasn't changed at all over time.

I enjoyed using this product, it was easy to apply and easy to remove at night. There is a wide range of colours and I chose one a shade darker than my skintone, I put quite alot on my face and it didn't leave a thick line on my jaw. Unfortunatly it DID look very cakey on my face, no matter how much I blended it into my skin.It came off after a few hours and did'nt really last very long. Personally, I didn't think it was worth the price I paid for it.But overall a good product and I would... (read more)

Its just not good if you have dry skin because it sticks to it and makes your skin look flakey. It also tends to make it itch.

This product is okay at first, it gives good coverage for a little amount of money.
But in the long term, I would strongly advise not to buy this product.
Everyone I have spoken to who has used Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse for a long amount of time (over 6 months) has had something to say about the horrible drying effect it's had on their skin over time.

4. it gives great coverage with only a small amount

Out of all the value matte foundations ive tried, dream matte mousse definitely lives up to its claims...
I have oily/combination skin and can only use matte foundations as others are far to oily for my skin and just melt off my face after an hour and tend to go streaky and uneven.
I've found foundations that claim to stay matte all day, go oily after about an hour so when I first tried this I cudnt believe how well it worked! It smoothes onto the skin evenly and a little goes a long way.... (read more)

Review about Dream Matte Mousse. I would only recommend this product for people who do not have dry skin. If you have dry skin - do not use this product! But if you have normal/oily skin, it is fantastic for giving that matte un-shiny look, and also lasts quite a while. This product doesnt clog pores, meaning it does NOT give you spots which is great as many foundations do... just as long as you wash it off properly your skin will be fine, and shouldn't break out in any way. It spreads... (read more)

Adverts feature model with flawless skin covering up blemishes and wearing in bright daylight creating the illusion of all-day wear. Unfortunately Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse does not cover blemishes unless layered on. Is quite fiddly to get used to but does feel lovely on the skin.
