Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation Review

Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation is a liquid foundation that has a luminous coverage and it's designed for all skin types. It retails for around $12.34-$15.99 USD. It's currently available at Amazon ($12.99 USD)), Walmart ($12.98) and Ulta ($15.99) and for Canada, it's also available on Amazon for $18.99 CAD and I've also seen it at Walmart.
Check out my video for demo and review: 

It comes in portable compact and contains 0.51 oz, which is almost half of the amount of product of most other foundations (1 oz).

It comes with a sponge applicator that applies the foundation nicely and I'm glad there's also a mirror. I like the overall packaging. It's lightweight and very travel-friendly.

Review 
  • Finish: Luminous
  • Coverage: Light to medium
  • Wear time: I tested it out for about 7.5 hours and it looks very good throughout the day. Since I have combination skin (oily t-zone), I did notice my skin looked oily by the end of the day but it's not as bad as I thought. I do find it's not as long wearing as some foundation. I feel like the foundation did slightly fade away but it still looked good by the end of the night.
