Foundation Friday – @maybelline Dream Urban Cover Full Coverage Foundation

September 20, 2019

I recently picked up a few new drugstore foundations, so I posted a poll on my Story to see which one you wanted to see a review of first and over half of the votes were for @maybelline Dream Urban Cover Full Coverage Foundation ($12.99 for 1 ounce at @walgreens –!

What it claims:

🔘 Experience the first full coverage makeup, specifically formulated to protect your skin from harmful environmental aggressors

🔘 This lightweight foundation has broad-spectrum SPF 50 and is enriched with antioxidants to protect against pollution

🔘 It not only leaves a natural-looking finish but protects skin day after day

🔘 Available in 16 shades

My experience:

👍🏻 I purchased shade 120 Classic Ivory. It’s a bit yellow on me, but it still works.

👎🏻 The shade range isn’t great.

🔘 As I am typing this, the foundation has been on for six (6) hours.

👍🏻👎🏻 I didn’t experience full coverage on the first layer, but it was high medium. I don’t like caking product on, so I stopped at that level of coverage.

🔘 I applied it with a beauty sponge.

👍🏻 It blended out easily and worked beautifully with all of my other products. The only thing I would suggest is to set the places in which you’ll be applying powder products because it was a bit tacky.

👍🏻 There has been no settling into my forehead lines.

👍🏻👎🏻 There has been very slight settling in between my brows and in my chin crease.

👍🏻👎🏻 There has been slight cakiness on the sides of my nose.

👍🏻👎🏻 After around four (4) hours of wear, my nose started to get oily. However, since it claims a natural finish, I wasn’t surprised.

👍🏻 I don’t see that it has faded from any area of my face.

My verdict?

If this were the beginning of summer, I’d assume I wouldn’t be getting much use out of this foundation because of its natural finish. However, since we’re heading into fall, I can see myself using this constantly on what will become my drier skin. I also love that it contains SPF and is affordable (even more so now because @walgreens is having a buy two (2) get one (1) free sale!). It wore well and made my skin look healthy and flawless. Definitely a winner in my book!
