Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse

This is my first cream-foundation I’ve ever tried, and gurrrll, I must say, it is FABULOUS.

I bought it in a previous Wal-Mart haul, and HAD to share it’s amazingness. Truthfully, I bought it mainly for experimentation.

I got it in the color “Classic Ivory”, which is a perfect match for my fair, neutral skin.

The packaging is sort of wonky, because you’ve got a compact on top for the sponge, THEN a twist-off bottom for the cream product. And no mirror for touch-ups!

But aside from that, the product is GREAT. It provides a smooth, creamy coverage that’s about medium-intensity. The product is very emollient and moisturizing, which is great for dry spots.

DISCLAIMER: Just because the product is called “Mousse” doesn’t mean it’s mousse-like in texture. (It’s not at all!)

Anyways, I ran a couple experiments with this and was quite pleased. On my combo skin, it lasts quite well without powder, which I was really surprised at. The finish is interesting: it’s really luminous but not dewy, sort of like fresh, clean satin.

But anyways, this is truly a wonder. It doesn’t cake, streak, splotch, or oxidize, a problem I have with many drugstore foundations. If you were curious about this product before and it sounds like it’s for you, GO GET IT ASAP. ❤

Among all my fancy high-end lotions, potions, powders, and liquid foundations, this little sucker’s going to squat right in the middle of them all.

I love it.

IT’S GOT THE OFFICIAL GIRLY SEAL OF APPROVAL.

Wal-Mart Haul!

Hey my little curly-fries!

I went to Wal-Mart literally just a half an hour ago, and picked up some stellar products that I wanted to share with you!. :}

It was late, and I was tired, and my mom wanted to leave, so I snatched some products that looked interesting and booked it to the nearest check-out.

So let’s dive in!

First off is two Essie nail lacquers in “Sugar Daddy” and “Mint Candy Apple”. Image

As you can see, the colors are very pastel and candy-like, like the colors on an Easter-egg! They go on really smoothly; Mint Candy Apple dries to a cream finish and Sugar Daddy is a sheer gloss.

These are my first two Essie nail polishes, and I’m SO happy with them! Sugar Daddy is totally my new staple nail-color because it makes your nails look really healthy. Mint Candy Apple is a very fresh spring-summer color, very minty, and very bright. If you’re tan, it will pop against your skin!

Next is a Maybelline Eyestudio Duo in “Persuasive Plum”…something I wasn’t too sure about. Image

Guys, I’m a brown-eyed girl, and purples are my thang, mmkay?! (Tho I haven’t found the perfect shade yet.)

The duo comes with a dark eggplant-purple shade and a lighter shade with spots of champagne, mauve, light brown, dark brown, and lilac. The dark purple was so pigmented and velvety, but the lighter color HARDLY showed. Poo.

AND LAST is a cream foundation, my first, I might add! It’s the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse, a very hit-and-miss product, in the color “Classic Ivory”.

It’s really emollient, but comes in a sort of funny packaging. If you guys want a review, leave that suggestion in the comments! I’d be more than happy to do one!

Anyway, that’s all for tonight!

As Tigger says: “TTFN! Ta ta for now!”
