Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Men Too! This is a great medium/light coverage foundation that is extremely easy to apply. It's basically foolproof as long as you pick the right shade, and there are several from which to choose. I like to help men look their best and the Dream Cushion is something easy to carry and apply when needed - it can even function as a concealer because it's so easy to build! It can be set with a little powder but even that isn't necessary - it dries VERY quickly to a luminous but natural glow. Men have trouble with liquid foundations because the facial hair will grab the liquid - this is very thin and doesn't seem to smother the hair as much thanks to the pigmentation of the product. I've never used anything quite like it, and it's great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent foundation I recently purchased dream cushion foundation. I am a foundation and lipstick product junky so I have and tried lots of different foundations. I have a couple of favorites but they always seemed to get discontinued. I decided to try this after reading several positive reviews. I am extremely pleased with the product. It blends and covers well. It starts out sheer but is buildable and able to cover any blemishes. I will say the trick is using just a little. You don’t need to saturate the makeup pad with foundation. Instead use just a tiny bit at a time and tap it over your skin. The foundation blends flawlessly and gives your skin a nice healthy glow. The only draw back are the color choices. They don’t have many and really should add more. Also, I wash the makeup pad about once per week and let it air dry before placing back into it’s holding. It’s also very convenient to carry with you for touch ups/traveling. Overall it’s my favorite foundation at the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant At last I have found a foundation that makes my face looked tanned rather than orange (Sun beige No 48). It's perfect for taking on holiday too as you know it won't leak in your case. Please don't discontinue this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Foundation! I’ve had this for a while and it has lasted for a pretty long time which was surprising to me. I like how easy it is to apply and for the price I think it’s a good investment. However, the shade range sucks. I’m not a POC but the shades do not come in variety, which is disappointing. I love the product and if there were more shades then I’d be completely satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I bought this a few days ago and ever since my first use everything about it has been so amazing. The color matches my skin perfectly, the product feels light weight and it has good coverage. Plus I love the packaging/ cushion application. <3 10/10 would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love it! I am 71 and loved the cream to powder foundations. Have trouble finding foundation that doesn't feel heavy. This one fits the bill, no sweating, the Classic Ivory color is perfect. And easy, quick application. Thanks so much for this!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IT'S FEELS SO SOOMTH. I got this at Walmart and I thought it was going to be too orange and dark for my skin but it actually blended in very well being I have yellow under tone. I love Dewey make up like this one but it doesn't stay dewey very long for me since I have super dry absorbent skin. (yes I pre moisturize). But I like it enough to send my mom one in Mexico she said she loved it as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No applicator I love the coverage...however, when I opened the product, there was no applicator/pad to use to apply the foundation. Very disappointed, especially considering the cost.
Date published: 2018-05-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Shade Range The shade range is ridiculous. I'm pale, and not even super pale, and their lightest shade is not light enough. They just don't even have an ok shade range, it's not good. They need to add more shades, especially because I liked the product but it was way too dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best!..but too little product for the price Love it!! It’s the only stuff that doesn’t seem to oxidize or settle into my large pores. The only problem is it only lasts about 3 weeks, and can get expensive to go through so fast.
Date published: 2018-04-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it-but doesn't last very long This is the only foundation that doesn't turn orange and doesn't sink into my large pores, but it only lasts a couple or three weeks before it dries out. It's a little pricey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love- more shades please! Really fantastic coverage, dewy and blurring. Lasts all day without transfer, which is huge for me. My only issue is being gold toned and fair. Porcelain is too light, Ivory is too pink, Classic Ivory is too dark. But otherwise, it's great. I make it work. <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You’ve done it again! Kudos! Maybelline you always come thru for my skin with the most awesome foundations. I’m a huge fan of the FitMe line but this—this is a dream I never want to wake from! This product is so easy to use, so breathable, and covers my flaws naturally without drawing unwanted attention to them. I apply this over my sunscreen and spritz the Maybelline makeup sealant and I’m good to go! Thanx again and keep up the great work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation I cannot say enough nice things about this foundation! Being as though I have some skin issues, (dryness, hyper pigmentation, and pitted acne scars) I've tried almost every foundation there is to try. From drugstore foundations to high end products. I can honestly say that this is the FIRST foundation I've stuck with. Not only did I not return it, but I've bought about 4 compacts. It's so easy to apply, it blends beautifully, has a nice medium coverage, and gives me a nice healthy glow that lasts all day. It's also very travel friendly because it's a compact foundation. My only complaint is that there isn't a lot of product in the compact. I run out fairly quickly which is a bummer but it's affordable so I can't complain too much!
Date published: 2017-09-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! It was so amazing and light and has perfect coverage! This is so light and has the best coverage for a foundation I've ever found from high end to drugstore.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The first foundation to work with my combo skin! Maybelline seems to be the only foundation that works with my combination skin. I have oily areas, where it makes it feel light and breathable. I have dry areas, where it doesn't show flakiness and moisturizes. The only thing about this foundation, its the lack of coverage for acne or redness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!!! One of the worst I've used. I bought this foundation 3 weeks ago and I am completely disappointed. I've used numerous Maybelline foundations and have never had such a terrible product from them. Coverage is very poor and the foundation goes on patchy with the provided sponge and needs to be blended with my fingers. It is also very dry and does not give a luminous result as the packaging suggests.
Date published: 2017-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a holy grail foundation! I've gone through 5 of these already. I have the warm nude 30 and use this every morning on the go. I'll apply it right before work and add the rest of my face make up and flawless! I've been searching for a foundation for 3 years since I started aging and needed to cover pigmentation. This is the ONE and I highly recommend if you have dry skin and like a little glow. Would love to see Maybelline create this formula in a bottle. The cushion lasts me 3 weeks, I would surge for a bottle instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great coverage, but it doesnt last! I bought this foundation about a month ago, because my normal foundation was out of stock. I thought I would give it a chance as it was the newest one available. My normal foundation normally lasts me around 5-6 months, this has practically run out already. The product itself is great, and provides great coverage, but for the same price you can buy a foundation that lasts 5-6 times longer which is a big disappointment. It is great for touch ups on the go, however I would not use this as an every day foundation - even for the little bit I do use on a daily basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic lightweight foundation Before I became knowledgeable about makeup, I used to have the hardest time finding makeup that matched my skintone well. Part of the problem was that people always think I’m much darker than I am because I have a bit of natural coloring but they don’t realize that my face doesn’t have a lot of color. It’s no wonder that I wear makeup for a natural ‘no-makeup’ type look. Nowadays I know myself better and I know how to shop for makeup. Everyone learns over time and I’m happy to report that Maybelline makes it easy for everyone to find their perfect match because the Dream Cushion comes in 8 shades for a variety of skintones. It’s super easy to pick a color that matches well, and the coverage is medium and buildable. The Dream Cushion has an interesting application because it’s basically a sponge that has foundation in it and you get the liquid by using a small applicator pad that is stored inside the container. There’s no mess and it makes it very portable for ladies that do their makeup on the go. The DreamCushion has found itself a home in my daily beauty routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cover. I just bought the dream cushion I have brought many different types of makeup but this one is the best. I can't stand the smell from others but when I put yous on I didn't get a head ache. Thank you .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Face looks dry I bought this product after they discontinued the other liquid foundation with the sponge. I had been using the other product for 4 years and was so happy with almost flawless skin. This product is all wrong, the application puff needs to have the sponge the one that came with it is not made for liquid but powder. After applied, my face looks dry and dusty. Now I need to find a new liquid foundation after almost 5 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth coverage and perfect colour. I just bought this for the first time today and have to say I am absolutely in love with it. I usually avoid liquid foundations because they tend to 'sit' on top of my skin and look pasty. This just blends right in with my skin and it's easy to build it up if you want a heavier finish. It's also quite literally the first liquid foundation I've come across that matches my skin tone and doesn't carry the annoying red / pink overtones that so many foundations tend to have. I don't generally bother with product reviews, but in the interest of keeping this product around for a long time I thought I'd add one, because it really is fantastic. I'd happily recommend this to anyone who wants light to medium coverage and a nice dewy finish. As far as durability goes, I live in a humid climate and I've yet to come across anything truly sweat-proof, and I doubt this is any exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I bought this hoping for a medium to full coverage that didn't look like I had caked on enough makeup for two weeks. Not only is this incredibly easy to apply (I rarely use makeup of any kind so it has to be easy) but it's like wearing my own skin only better!! I thought maybe it was a fluke when I first started applying it so did a half and half test...what a remarkable difference. It lasts all day, doesn't smudge (I did finish with a powder) and best of all, doesn't feel like I'm wearing a heavy mask of makeup. This is definitely my new favorite and takes the place of beauty balms, creams and all other foundations!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough cushion. Great product I love the coverage but for someone who wears a thin coat .. I wished the cushion it lasted longer than just like 10 -15 applications. Sort of disappointing because I was so excited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended Its just perfect ... I tried heaps of expensive foundation, all gets caky and dont last long... but dream cushion has saved my life.. it gets better by the end of the day

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Product I bought this product a month ago, and even when storing it in a plastic bag (airtight); it was dried out within the month. The foundation that this replaced (dream liquid) was much better. I'm very disappointed with this & the price. But found a better product with another line.

I use the Maybelline cushion foundation in the shade 45 ( medium beige), what would be the shade equivalent in your other foundation ranges (The Fit-Me range and mousse to be more specific)

Asked by: tn8788
Hi tn8788, None of our colors are exactly the same but we have a few that may work! In the Maybelline FitMe collection, a good option may be to try the Natural Tan 320 color. For the Dream Matte Mouse Foundation collection you could try the Medium beige 80 color. Again, none of our colors are the exact same so we can not guarantee a perfect match, but these are a few good options! We attached the links for both of the foundations below: http://tinyurl.com/y92okjwy http://tinyurl.com/yba72544 We hope this helps!
