Yes! They're finally here! Makeup from the Maybelline Dream Collection is finally in Manila! I know, I know. My post is loooong over due. But isn't this great? People have seen my posts announcing Maybelline's Dream arriving via Instagram, but I only found time to review about it today.. Boo... Don't hate me!
Aside from the uber exciting foundations that arrived, the dream bouncy blush came too! Ooh-la-la. Something to get really excited about! Finally, makeup that is built to withstand the underestimated humidity of Manila!
Let me tell you something about airbrush: the reason why it is so popular is because it gives the appearance of full coverage without making your skin look like it was cemented, rather it gives a very flawless, velvet-silk smooth finish, and it feels like second skin. That is what airbrush is all about, and that is the effect that this new revolutionary foundation gives you.
A bunch of other brands have tried to sell their products as "airbrush" or "HD" effect, but those products that I have tried in the past were waaaay too thick to look like airbrush. This is the closest foundation base that I have tried that mirrors the finish of having your skin airbrushed.
You can use whatever foundation tool you want too apply it with and it would still not make you look too made up.

This is NUDE BEIGE:
Although the packaging may seem like it is yellow-based, it has a slight pinkish undertone that may not be suitable for women with yellow undertones, it may look a tad ashy. So always always ALWAYS do the jawline swipe test for the right shade. It looks really yellow on camera but when you swipe it side by side (which I will show you later), you can see the obvious difference.
This one is SANDY BEIGE:
Now that I have swiped them side by side you can see the difference. The Nude Beige shade has a pinkish-peachy undertone which is best for women who have a very warm skin tone, and someone who has pinkish hues to their skin. This should blend really well! Meaning, the shade should "melt" perfectly into your skin.

Pro tip: I recommend applying this blush with your fingers because you will have more control on where to apply product.
I had a blast at the launch! It was so fun to be with my fellow blogger friends and magazine editors. It was a very intimate lunch at Stella at the Fort.
Let me show you some photos from the event that I entered during their #maybellinedream Instagram Photo Contest! It was so fun! And guess what? I won the contest too! And the prize... (Drum Roll Please)
