Day 28: Favorite Face Powder: Maybelline Dream Matte Powder: Review

Hi loves! How are you? Today, I will be reviewing my favorite face powder for you guys. And the winner is Maybelline’s Dream Matte Powder. A quick preface – I love using powder and I use it almost every day. I like using it only for setting my makeup and maybe sometimes for blotting, but I never seek for extra coverage. So with that being said, I can honestly say that the Maybelline pressed powder is amazing for what I look for – it absorbs the oils incredibly and it sets my makeup so well that it stays on for hours! :)

To start off, the packaging is pretty cool in my opinion. I love its concept – it has two compartments. First, we open the lid and we have the powder itself and then you can twist the bottom part of the packaging and there is another separate compartment where we have a mirror and a little puff. I love the fact that the powder comes with a mirror and I don’t need to carry a separate one with me. Plus, I like that there is a puff that’s covered, so no dirt can go inside. I rarely use it though, cuz I prefer to use my Sephora Kabuki Brush, but the puff is great for when I’m on-the-go.

The formulation of the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder is amazing. It is really lightweight and it doesn’t look cakey or powdery on my face. The powder is really finely milted and its texture is very soft and smooth. On the Maybelline’s web site it says that “Formula is jet-milled into ultra-fine particles for an air-soft, ultra-silky texture”.

Now, I have combination skin and my T-zone tend to be oilier so I love using this powder to give my face a pretty matte look. It definitely gives me some good 6-7 hours of it. After that I just put on a little bit of product where it’s needed and I’m good to go. :)

I find that The Dream Matter Powder is perfect for setting the makeup, as well. It seals it and it stays on place throughout the whole day. Some people may be disappointed to hear that but this powder has a very light coverage. I don’t mind it, but if you’re looking for some coverage as well as the matte finish, then this powder may not be for you.

Usually, most the face powders that I use break me out, but I am pleased to say that with the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder I’ve never had that problem. My skin reacts very well to it! :)

The powder comes only in four shades and unfortunately all of them are pretty light, in my opinion. So, if you have a darker skin tone, then you may not be able to find the perfect shade for you.

Overall, I think that this is an amazing product and I would definitely continue repurchasing it. I think, however, that it may not be suitable for people with super dry skin, since it can be a little bit drying. But if you have combination/oily skin I would absolutely recommend it! :))

Last but not least, let’s talk price! The Maybelline Dream Matte Powder retails for about $8 but the price may vary a bit depending on where you purchase it. I think that this is just a steal, considering how amazing the quality of the powder is. This product can be found in pretty much every drug store that sells Maybelline. :)

Which is your favorite face powder? I’d love to know and try some new products!
Have an amazing day, everyone!

XO,
Andrea
