As a beauty blogger, I am on a constant search for interesting beauty products that are available in the market. When it comes to makeup foundation, so far, the ones that I have tried are the liquid and powder types. This is why the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Classic Ivory (Light 2) caught my eye when I was browsing over the Maybelline counter last month. It is not the usual kind of foundation that I have been used to. So, I bought one to give it a try. 😀

Upon seeing it for the first time, I kept on thinking as to how I would use it since I am used to the typical liquid or powder foundation. I have initially tried this with a foundation brush. However, I cannot seem to make it blend properly. Aside from that, product particles fall off from the brush that can stain your clothes. Such a hassle…
Here is a swatch of the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Classic Ivory (Light 2). That is a heavy swatch, by the way. See those product particles? If you use a brush, some of the particles will fall off and stain whatever it is in which it will land. If you get that much amount using your finger, it would be hard for you to apply and blend it on your skin.
