Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my skin look airbrushed and flawless! I recently got this because it was on clearance, but I was also curious about the so called velvet matte. The formula is AMAZING. I have dry skin and cheeks that stay red. This foundation makes my skin look truly flawless-which I love. It is a little orange-I was worried about that at first but I found that it wasnt too bad! Everyone can tell a difference in my foundation too. It feels weightless and my skin doesn’t look dry. A little goes a long way! This is my new go to foundation! My shade is the second to last one, honey beige? I think. Can’t think of it but it’s honey something

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange color range Really loved the formula but there was no color even remotely close to my skin tone. The fairest colors were extremely orangey and pink -- there was no true porceilan or ivory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WARM PORCELAIN IS INCREDIBLE! PLEASE Maybelline I love your Dream Velvet foundation in 05 Warm Velvet! Please bring back to the shelves or online! Its the ONLY foundation that matches my tone perfectly! Blends beautifully and wears all day long. It is the best and I need it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST LIQUID FOUNDATION The absolute best liquid foundation I've ever used. Provides a clean coverage that doesn't look caky or overdone but smooths out my skin tone and looks absolutely flawless. I'll never use another!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Granted this is by far the best foundation for oily skin , just disappointed that there has been a removal of foundation to compliment women of color

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible For Dry Skin I had bought this foundation on a whim, but my god, had I just done a quick review search, I wouldn't have been severly dissapointed. The texture it leaves is true to the claims: "velvety-matte," but because I've had dry skin that flakes a bit for the longest time, it emphasized those dry spots and looked extremely cakey. Even worse, I couldn't wear it for more than an hour without turning into an oily mess. I have since fell in love with the matte+poreless formula, but everytime I wear it, even after cleaning it off properly, my skin breaks out for a couple of days. If that wasnt the case, and I didn't have dry skin, this would be a perfect replacement. Yet sadly that isnt the case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse I bought the Dream Velvet Nude which is the lightest shade but when I used it, it made my skin so dark and so oily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond amazing ! i love this product so so much. I have been using it for over a year and it’s absolutely amazing. it was my first foundation and the foundation i will continue to use ! It is so light and so easy to put on. I do not wear much makeup but with this it feels as if i am wearing nothing on my face. it has great coverage and the perfect shade. People have told me that they didn’t even realize i was wearing foundation. I love this product so much and would recommend to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full blendable coverage I love the amount of coverage and the finish. It goes on great with a foundation brush. The only thing I don't love is that it wipes off and transfers. Even after setting powder and setting spray, if I lightly swiped my face with my hand it would all come off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to motto! I bought this product about a week ago and all I can say is WOW. It’s honestly better than the foundation I’ve been using for yeeears. I purchased the Coconut color and it blends great with my tone. A little goes a long way, it trully does make your skin look smooth. I’m not a big make-up person so I only use the basics and people actually think it’s my own skin! In the Texas heat it still feels light-weight so I honestly forget I have it on. The only problem I would say I have is the oily/sweat-prone areas of my face shine. I know there are products for that I just haven’t found it. Wonderful for the price!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Clearance Find Ever I saw this on the clearance aisle in a Target one day and decided to buy it because I love the original matte mousse foundation. This stuff is lit. I have weird skin, like I'm technically oily however, with most matte finish foundations, I look extremely dry. This foundation is the perfect mix of matte and moisturizing. It makes my skin look nice and fresh. I love it! My only gripe is the shade range, however, I sometimes mix it with Fit Me to get my perfect color match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels great and looks amazing! I'm really happy with this foundation. It goes on smoothly. No primer needed because it's so hydrating and camouflages my pores. It gives me medium coverage. I prefer using my finger tips to apply it. I live in a high humidity area so I do use finishing powder and setting spray with it. I'm using the color 10 Porcelain Ivory. It's a bit too pink for me but I'm able to neutralize it with yellow tone finishing powder. I love the texture. I love the packaging. Would like it to come in a light shade that's more neutral and less pink. Also wish it had SPF but then some people are sensitive to SPF so maybe it's good that it doesn't have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Foundation I just purchased this over the weekend while we were on a trip. I forgot to pack my foundation and purchased Dream Velvet Foundation. This product is great, and I love the way it goes on your face. I will definitely purchase it again soon. Thanks Maybelline for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dewy Amazing Foundation! However I recommended if you have Oily skin PLEASE use a Matte Primer from Maybelline with it. Also a matte powder. The dewy look will come through in less than 6 hours if you have oily skin. So be carefull not to pile on the highlight with this one, or else you will look shiny. I'm medium to dark skin in complexion. Carmel is a tad to light, while coconut is way to dark. So I mix the two together to get a flawless match. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect foundation My skin type is oily and it has too many pores. Anyways, I really love this foundation and I haven't felt that way in my whole life. I will always buy this foundation. My skin looks perfect and smooth. My words can't explain how much I'm in love with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from drug store foundation great finish The Finish this leaves is great. I have combination skin, oily through the t zone and rosacea. So imagine my surprise that I did not have red cheeks showing through at the end of the day. I am very happy with this buy, and I almost did not buy because they did not have the color I wanted Warm Porcelain. I ended up buying Ivory and am ok with the color but love the coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My new favorite foundation! I hope it stays around for a long time. This makes my skin look better than any foundation I've ever used. I also appreciate how this foundation has minimal ingredients since I have sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Holy Grail of Foundation!! My previous holy grail foundation was discontinued. Devastated, I went on a quest to find a 'duplicate.' Many failed attempts later, I found Maybelline Velvet. It's even BETTER than my previous for my Dry/Combo.skin. I use Creamy Natural. I love how it is hydrating (rare for matte's), the light to medium coverage feels light on the skin, and my skin looks so pretty and 'even,' and it's a great price point. Please..please...I beg you, Maynelline, don't discontinue this line or color..nor change the formula. keep.this new Holy Grail.around!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So good once you get it right I wanted to love this so bad because I pretty much love everything that maybelline puts out. I had to try and try again until I got the right "formula" but once I got it right I absolutely loved it! I had to try three different primers before I got one that worked for me. If you have this stuff and you really don't want it to go to waste, then get the TEMPTU base and mattifying primer. It worked perfectly with this foundation! I honestly love this product as much or more than the fit me foundations when used with the right primer. it's so hydrating and stays on great and you can touch your face without the makeup moving because it's thicker than most foundations.
Date published: 2017-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome makeup! I have combination skin, I can never find a foundation that stays on or that doesn't cling to my dry patches, but with the velvet foundation I have. It is perfect for my skin, please don't discontinue this foundation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way To Dark!!!! I saw so many great reviews on this product and was absolutely thrilled when I stopped by the drugstore to pick it up. When I got it, I chose shade 10 because I am extremely pale, and when I tried it on I LOVED the look of the product but it was way to dark! I immediately went back and purchased shade 05 only to receive the same results. I'm having this issue with many maybelline products and suggest you produce a wider shade range in all foundations and concealers. I have also read many reviews suggesting the same thing, it's disappointing to be told you are getting one shade and actually receive something that should not be considered the lightest shade or any kind of "porcelain" shade. I have wasted a lot of money on Maybelline products that were just too dark so I suggest you be careful with what you buy. I'm so disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drugstore foundation I love this foundation. This line has a good color selection for fair and light complexions. It is lightweight but with good coverage. I love that it is not heavy on the skin, and doesn/t makes it oily. I also love that it has no SPF in it because it is not so easy to find a good foundation without SPF. I do not need sun protection iin my foundation if I already use a day cream which contains it. The result is beautiful on my skin, my pores are refined and my skin looks healthy and natural. Please never discontinue this great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish!!! I've been using this foundation for 3 weeks and it's the first foundation that looks natural & doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It also helps cover my dark spots with a light layer. I apply over a slightly silicone based primer and it looks natural and make my skin look better. I have combination skin and do not look oily by the end of the day. I have tried a LOT of high-end foundations and Dream Velvet beats them all hands down!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAVORITE This is an amazing product, I used it daily for about a year until every store around has sold out of porcelain ivory. I work outside so it has been hard to find a foundation that can handle sweat, this product is unbeatable! It's not too oily, it blends easily and you don't have to worry about streaking or loss of color throughout the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Silver finish on dark skin???? When first applied, it's has a wonderful warm undertone. A bit thick but worth it because of the "matteness". But 4-5 hours in, I get a supper ugly silver uneven color on the surface . Weirdly you can feel it on your skin it has that light tingling. I feel like it due to my oily skin but yeah. Never had that kind of problem with any product(presently using anotherone without changing my routine).
Date published: 2017-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I picked this up from my local Walmart, love love love. Provides medium to full coverage even over dark acne scars and smooths out my texture issues! It is a soft matte finish and it does feel hydrating. I think any skin type can use this. I have normal/dry skin. It did darken slightly once dry but nothing terrible! Will be repurchasing this again. I set with a light layer of loose translucent powder and I'm good to go. I also apply with a damp sponge. So easy to use and blend. And a little goes a long way! Great foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary to life If you ever stop making this I will curl up and die. Seriously, charge however much you want....just keep making it. There's not room here to describe all it's virtues, but please....don't ever take it away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for yellow undertones I am pale white with yellow undertones and freckles. Porcelain has always been too pink, and ivory too dark. I was browsing the cosmetics wall at the drugstore and saw "warm porcelain" on the label. I bought it immediately. When I put it on, it seemed runny, and I did have to apply it twice (my face is pretty wide) but once I blended, it looked as if I had actually smoothed my skin rather than applied a layer of foundation. It feels very light and airy, and it looks so much better than the FitMe ivory foundation stick I had been using. Now, if only this shade were available in the FitMe line (specifically the pressed powder) as well, I'd be all set.

I absolutely LOVE the dream velvet line, but I can’t find Caramel #92 anywhere! I’ve searched hi and low and I only find the same 6 colors. Even as I travel I am looking and I still can’t find it. I would love to find this somewhere besides amazon! Thanks
