Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation Review

Hello beauties, 
Cushion foundations have become all the rage. EVERYONE is talking about them. I'm not usually a fan of 'light' foundation coverage (full coverage all the way), but I thought I'd take one for the team and try out Maybelline's Dream Cushion. Keep on reading for my full review. 

The Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation is available in eight shades that are supposed to offer complete natural looking coverage. The liquid is housed in a sponge-like cushion inside a compact, which you apply using the puff included or with a beauty blender or buffing brush. I've been using the shade Ivory and it's a really good match for my skin. I often have trouble buying drugstore foundation as I find the colour selection really poor for fair skin and usually end up with an orange face (no thank you). 

The pigmentation is also really great. I was surprised by how much coverage it delivered, especially as the formula is very lightweight. I've used the puff included as well as my buffing brush and I get the same results each time. It does a good job of covering up any redness and problem areas and it leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant. It's supposed to have a luminous finish but I didn't find this at all - however different skin types often have different results with certain foundations. 

The compact is a good size and I think it would be amazing to travel with. You don't have to worry about it breaking and it would easily fit into your handbag. The one real downside is that you only get about half the product that you get in normal foundations. While you're not using as much as you would, it's still around the same price point. 

I found the wear time for this foundation to be around five to six hours before it starts to fade and move around the skin. For that reason, I wouldn't wear this to work. I will, however, be packing this in my travel bag!
