You may have seen by now that Maybelline recently launched a new foundation that fell into the liquid powder/skin perfector category, one that’s growing in popularity with several brands putting out their own versions. I was totally intrigued by everything I had read and scooped up a bottle of the new Dream Wonder Liquid Touch Foundation on my last trip to Target to give it a try.
I’m so excited to write about this product because holy sh*t – it’s amazing. I haven’t been this excited about a drugstore product in I don’t even know how long, but believe the hype people – this stuff is amazing!
The product is very fluid (read: runny) and has a liquid-to-powder finish because of the oils in the formula. The applicator is like a dropper, and while the bottle recommends using your fingertips to apply, I suggest keeping a duo fibre brush on hand (I used my Sigma F50 Duo Fibre brush) to buff out the product for the *perfect* airbrush finish, as I think a sponge would absorb it too much and a traditional foundation brush would just be too streaky and lift too much off the face.
I’ve been wearing this now for about a week and am absolutely in love. My only complaint is it really does kind of sit on the face if you’ve got oilier skin, and it likely performs at its best on normal skin – I’m not sure how it would perform on dry skin. I do find it feels a bit greasy when my mid-afternoon shine comes through, but I’ve also found that touching it up is a cinch and all I have to do is put a tiny amount on my brush again and do a quick all-over touch up to get the matte glow it provides.
The coverage is also really impressive. Actually, no. It’s seriously impressive. It builds really easily and evens out your skin tone and offers such a beautiful airbrush finish with ease. All of that, and it’s so lightweight. The pictures below show me with zero makeup (yikes! sorry!), then with just one layer of the product – then my complete face. Can’t you see how incredible it is?!
All in all, I’m loving this product and have been reaching for it every day since I bought it. It’s great for summer and I think once the cooler weather comes and my t-zone calms down a bit, it will be excellent for fall and winter. I highly recommend you give it a try!
