I got this Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation solely for one purpose. And that is for touch-ups. My skin falls in the dry category and to touch-up with a compact is a horror. So I thought, this foundation will be a good replacement.

Was I right in doing so? Definitely! In fact, I abandoned my regular foundation because of this. Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation is so easy to use. I don’t use the cushion that comes with the foundation, because I prefer a buff brush. The cushion also does a good job in blending, but a puff brush is my personal preference.

This foundation is a creamy foundation that gives a sheer coverage with a dewy finish. This one makes me look more natural. It gives an illusion of a glassy flawless skin.

Another thing I like about it is, it comes with SPF, so without any worry, I head out. The open pores I have around my nose are also blurred, and it stays like that for a decent five to six hours. For a price it comes at, I think it works way beyond than it. But the quantity is a little too less.

Those with heavy marks and blemishes will not like it as much as I do, because it will not give enough coverage.

Advice: It is better not to try to build for more coverage because you will end up looking cakey. If you are looking for a high coverage foundation, skip the Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation. Otherwise, this is a keeper! It is ideal for young women who want medium coverage.

PROS

Does not look cakey

Travel-friendly

Long-lasting

Lightweight

Has SPF 20

Suitable for sensitive skin

CONS

Medium coverage


I don’t have many blemishes, and my skin is slightly oily. I have fair skin with pink undertones. The only major problem I face with my skin is redness. It is super sensitive.

I bought the shade Porcelain which suits me very well and covers the redness decently. It does not give full coverage, but just the right amount for naturally flawless skin. And since I don’t have many blemishes, it works perfectly for me.

I set with a light dusting of translucent powder, and it looks amazing. It does not catch on dry patches.

I highly recommend this product to people with similar skin type/skin issues as I have for an effortless, even, natural look.

Flawless coverage but less quantity
4.6/5

PROS

Long-lasting

Does not clog pores

Has SPF 20

Imparts a dewy and radiant glow

Gives a natural finish

Provides medium coverage

Does not oxidize

CONS

Less quantity


This is my first cushion foundation, so I did not know what to expect. Once I started using this Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation in the shade Sun Beige, I couldn’t help but fall for it. The finish is absolute perfection! I have dry skin with fine lines, but this foundation fits in like a glove. It does not result in any patchiness. Instead, it gives just enough coverage to make me look flawless. I adore the dewiness. It is exactly what my dryness needs.

The only complain I have about it is its quantity. It is too less for the price it comes in.

Ok-ok foundation
2/5

PROS

Easy application

Imparts a dewy finish

CONS

Expensive

Limited shades available


I like the concept of a cushion liquid foundation. It just puts the touch-up game to the next level. I can get a foundation touch-up with a compact-like way. The container itself looks like a compact.

Now coming to this product, I don’t think it is of the best quality. I have used better ones. I have very light skin with cool undertones, so I chose Ivory. Even if it is the lightest shade available, it made me look yellow. So, I will not be using it again. I did like the dewy effect, and the cushion makes the whole application very easy. Overall, it should be an Ok foundation, but just not right for me. I wish Maybelline comes up with lighter shades.
