9. Doesn’t Last: Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
Among the many flaws – it is chalky, hard to blend and tends to give an ‘orangey’ color – Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse ($11) is said to often cause some serious acne problems and skin breakouts.
“I will admit I’m so disappointed I can’t use this foundation ever again.”
“It went on BEAUTIFULLY and made my textured skin look flawless, BUT I had the most severe acne breakout after a few uses. My ENTIRE face was covered in bumps, whiteheads, and blackheads. Before using this product I had finally gotten my acne-prone skin under control and this ruined it for me. I’m currently still fighting the breakouts two weeks later.” – Paris93
“Horrible foundation. Broke me out like crazy and I never have issues with acne. It also doesn’t blend well and the shades are almost all beige or pink undertones which isn’t great.”- Natasha142
8. Lasts All Day: YSL All Hours Full Coverage Matte Foundation
YSL All Hours Full Coverage Matte Foundation – which by the way doesn’t come cheap ($58 from Sephora) – seems to be the holy grail of makeup.
This foundation is described as “a new 24-Hour, a full-coverage foundation that instantly blurs pores and fines lines and provides uninterrupted flawless wear that looks and feels just applied, all-day.” It’s listed as being a full-coverage foundation with a matte finish; and it’s said the formula works best with normal, combination and oily skin types. There are 22 shades available, which is pretty impressive, but from the looks of the website, there aren’t still many options for dark/deep skin tones.
Hannah Rogers from ‘The Modern Girl’ said about this product: “This innovative formula is waterproof and transfer-resistant, and I tested this (as I am very prone to getting makeup on my man’s clothes) and yes! Transfer-resistant yes it is! More so than the other foundations I have reviewed.”
