Normally with Maybelline foundations, I have to mix 2 shades, Caramel (a bit too light) and Cocoa (too dark) to get the desired shade. I have pleaded with Maybelline to create a shade in-between Caramel and Cocoa. When I saw that the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation was available in Light Cocoa, I had to try it out.
Initially, when the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation is sprayed into the palm of the hand, the shade appears lighter than expected, but it quickly turns darker into the Light Cocoa shade.
I tried the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation with a foundation brush and with my hands. The foundation brush seemed to make the foundation look blotchy, streaky and not a lot of coverage. On the other hand, when I used my hands, the application seemed to be more even and the coverage was medium buildable. I rubbed my hands together as if I were lathering up soap and and patted my face with the foundation. I blended with buffer
brush and I repeated the patting motion twice for the right amount of coverage needed.
The foundation is lightweight and lasted the entire day. I did not see any signs of oxidation or the gray cast that some other Maybelline foundations cause.
Overall, I like the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation in Light Cocoa. It was a bit messy to use (keep makeup remover wipes handy). I like that I did not have to mix colors. *3 Cheers*
I will definitely re-purchase.
