The Dream Velvet Foundation & Blender | Maybelline

Hello, I'm back! Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to post over the weekend, I had a lovely time in London, visiting my brother and doing a lot of sightseeing which I'll be sharing with you on the blog later this week! 
Recently I've been trying this new foundation and blender by Maybelline so thought I would share with you my thoughts of how it lasted on the skin and if they are possibly a new 'must have',  for the make-up bag...

First off, I loved the look of these products, a beauty blender on a stick and a hydrating matte foundation made me really excited! It was a must that I tried these...

The Dream Velvet Foundation - As a teenager I loved the dream matte mousse (I think most of us did!) it was great to stay matte and this reminded me of mousse, but a thinner substance in a tube form. I loved the feel of this on the skin, very lightweight and smoothed over the skin lovely making a medium coverage with a natural matte finish. However, the make-up did not last all day, on areas I get oily (the chin, nose and forehead) it did start to separate and rub off very easy. I would recommend this for just out and about and for something quick and easy,  but if you want it to last all day and have oily skin this might not be the best choice for you!

The Dream Blender - This looked really different and I was interested to see how this would work with having something to hold onto and being a smaller applicator than what I was used to. Firstly, I like to use my blender damp which didn't seem to work with this one and I have to say this is much firmer which made it hard for me to blend the make-up and it seemed to soak into the sponge as it took longer to blend the foundation. I was unfortunately really disappointed with this, I think I'll have to stick with my original beauty blender, as personally I prefer it softer and larger to get a better blend, evenly and quicker.

I hope you enjoyed this review of Maybelline's new products, there are so many new and exciting beauty products out lately which I can't wait to try and share with you on my blog! See you with another post this weekend...

Have you tried either of these new beauty buys? What are your thoughts? :)
