I've been testing these two foundations, the Dream Velvet foundation by Maybelline in the shade Ivory and the Infallible Pro Matte foundation by L'oréal in the shade Natural Rose, for a while now so that it's time for a quick review. I have to say one is definitely a hit for me, the other one a miss ☺
Both shades fit me well (if I blend them properly). Ivory is a little lighter than Natural Rose and the lighter the foundation, the better it fits to my skin tone. By the way, my skin is combination.
1. The foundation that's a Hit
I'll be definitely repurchasing the Dream Velvet foundation. I'd say the coverage is medium to light with a natural and glowy finish that I love. The moussy texture makes it so easy to blend with your damp Beauty Blender. I wouldn't recommend this foundation to anyone that has really oily skin, as the finish is dewy, or wants a lot of coverage. Also the lasting-power isn't overwhelming. But for an everyday makeup look it's perfect!
2. The foundation that's a Miss
I know people are raving about this foundation on YouTube or blogs for so long, but for me the Infallible Pro Matte foundation just isn't working. No matter which technique I use, brushes, sponges or fingers - the result is cakey and the foundation doesn't blend. Also, the finish is too matte and heavy for me, I feel like it even accentuates fine lines. I won't repurchase.
