Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation

I hadn’t really jumped on the cushion foundation wagon because I never thought it would work for my Oily-Combination skin. I was on the hunt for this for a while when I finally spotted it at my local Walgreens!

After a few weeks of testing it out (at work and on days where I’m just lounging) I’ve finally come to the conclusion…. I LOVE this stuff!

I purchased the shades 10 & 15 because I wasn’t really sure what shade would work. As you can see from the swatches, 15 is muuuuuch darker and more pink toned. I couldn’t use it on my face (but it did make a nice correcting color under my eyes). For reference: I am an NC15 in MAC products.


For starters, I love the applicator. It’s a typical cushion sponge but it honestly makes application SO easy. It’s also so quick to apply! It gives light-medium coverage (I definitely still needed concealer for spots/undereyes). I had to set my T-zone with powder for it to not get shiny. It doesn’t accentuate any dry patches (my skin is Oily-combination).

I was kind of shocked at the price ($15.99?!) when I bought it at Walgreens. But honestly I would purchase it again. It lasted 8 hours on my skin before I noticed any fading. I didn’t even need a primer with this stuff (which is surprising because I always need one for my enlarged pores). This never made my skin greasy! I was so shocked that it lasted through my workday (9 hours of flying!) I am obsessed. I love it for my work(travel) makeup bag since it’s so easy to use. It gives a semi-matte finish to the skin.

Overall: A+

I’m so impressed with Maybelline and other drugstore brands lately. What do you guys think of this new cushion foundation? Let me know in the comments below!
