Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Review

So this was one of thing things on my wishlist last month and when I saw it in store for Β£5.99 (it’s introductory price) I just had to get it. Can’t resist a deal.

The Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude is a ‘fluid touch’ foundation, it is essentially beigey coloured water, if you accidentally knock this over it’s gonna ruin your carpet forever so be extra careful handling this motherflower. I’ve never come across this formula before so I’m even more intrigued about it’s claims.

What makes this foundation unique also is the applicator, there’s a teardrop shape at the end of the wand and you are supposedly meant to drop a bit of the foundation onto your finger and apply it to your face. I have to say I don’t find that method very efficient for me personally as I’m also super clumsy so to speed things along I swipe and dab the wand on my face directly. It looks crazy and a little weird but it’s what works for me and I then buff the foundation in with my Real Techniques buffing brush (it is amazing and worth having in your brush collection if it’s not there already!)

Because I am such a klutz, the applicator and the way you have to dispense the product it’s not ideal for me. If Maybelline wanted to go with the whole dropper thing I think a pipette would have been a better idea, it would be easier and less risky to manoeuvre the product from bottle to your hand or face you know? But I have to say I do like the design of the wand, it is pretty but perhaps not the most practical.

Week #5: Almost Halftime

[Note: I was supposed to post this more than two weeks ago but I’ve been not feeling up to blogging much lately. Here it is anyway… once more with feeling! (Side eye)]

I totally went ham on pancake day and had pancakes for lunch and for breakfast the next day. I regret nothing cos it tasted damn fine, not gonna lie guys. Also shout out to Jamie Oliver’s pancake recipe, it’s pretty much fail proof. So on to the important part, I’ve actually lost some weight this week, hallelujah, another 0.8 lbs gone. Lets hope that actually stays off but I have been neglecting exercise so I suppose that’s not going to bode well for me… We’ll see!
