Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation is 'Product Of The Week'. You'll see why in a bit. I got Nude Light 4, which is a tad lighter than my skin tone, but it settles down after blending & mimics my skin tone. I was confused between Light 4 & Light 3.5 (slightly darker shade), but I was afraid 3.5 would look a little too orange. I have to take another look at it to know for sure though, please don't quote me yet.
Coverage: Medium to heavy. Even a tiny blob of this is enough to cover the whole face. Swatch above if only half a pump.
Finish: I'd say it's between dewy & matte. Definitely needs to be set with powder if you have oily/combination skin. It would probably suit dry skin types as well.
Love: It gives a natural-looking airbrush finish. The medium-heavy coverage is better for my skin. Makes large pores almost invisible. Blends quickly- even with fingers. A small amount goes a long way. Conceals blemishes to an extent. Doesn't break me out. Fragrance-free. Looks really good in photos.
Don't Love: Can look streaky if not blended properly. Face gets a little oily after a couple hours & needs to be powdered again. No SPF.
Now let's test it on the side of my face with the most stubborn blemishes (EVER!) You'll see my real skin tone on my jawline. For those of you who are new to my blog, I battle hyperpigmentation/melasma - a hereditary problem- everyday.....
It evened out my skin tone, covered my pores and made my skin look Isn't it awesome?! I'd say it does live up to the 'Airbrush Finish' claim. Remember these pics are taken very closely, so the "imperfections" look giant. Can you imagine how my 'After' skin looks from afar?
This is officially the best drugstore foundation I've tried till date. LOVE!

*Btw, that Dream Matte Mousse Foundation was no good for me. It became very messy under the Delhi sun. A flamboyant male friend was like, "Ohmygod! What happened to your face??!"- under his breath, embarrassed tone, coz we were buying make-up at a store & my face looked like it was powdered with gram flour and wet fingers. I never wore it again! =[
