We have another new launch from Maybelline last week and here I am holding it for you guys. Yayy it’s finally here, the MAYBELLINE DREAM CUSHION FRESH FACE LIQUID FOUNDATION ON-THE-GO. And this time I had high expectations from this cushion foundation. Actually this is my first ever time trying any cushion foundation. Maybelline already has their BB cushion earlier which I haven’t really tried coz with just only 2 shades, I know that it would do nothing to me. And now that the Dream Cushion has come in with various shade options, and I found my shade, here are my thoughts on this foundation.
Re imagine complete, Luminous coverage with Maybelline’s New Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation. The innovative liquid foundation with increased color pigments delivers complete luminous coverage for a fresh-faced natural finish. On-the-go, Liquid Foundation meets the innovative one tap wonder cushion. It smooths and evens skin tone, Ensuring medium to high coverage. Available in varied shades, this innovative liquid foundation puts fresh-faced perfection in the palm of your hand.
- Gives a natural, Dewy and flawless finish.
- The formula is pigmented and quite buildable.
- Available in fresh shades that suit all complexions.

There are 6 shades available as of now and I’m in the shade 48 SUN BEIGE, which is supposed to be the darkest of all shades. Trust me, it took me a day to choose between 40 Fawn and 48 Sun Beige shades from the shade chart in the Nykaa website. I was that confused, but finally went up with Sun Beige and checked out my cart.
Talking about the shade, it has slight orange undertones in it, which is actually a good thing in canceling out the dark spots/blemishes. Anyone with NC42 skin tone, I suggest this shade. And anyone with NC45 and above tones, I guess this foundation goes lighter.
If you’re familiar with the cushion makeup trend, then you might be knowing the packaging of this as well. The MAYBELLINE DREAM CUSHION FRESH FACE LIQUID FOUNDATION comes in a white-beige colored body with a double lid enclosure. Upon opening the foundation case we see the sponge applicator space and a full sized mirror included, and when the second lid is opened there’s a safety paper that has to be peeled off and there’s the foundation highly soaked and concentrated in liquid foundation.
For the application, all we need to do is slightly dab the applicator sponge into the foundation and apply on to your face in dab dab dab- dabbing motion. Do not drag the sponge during application. Only dabbing motion gives maximum and high coverage of the foundation.
The Dream Cushion foundation has ultra smooth and creamy formula and texture that it blends into the skin like a dream. It has very light weight formula. It doesn’t feel any heavy on the face, it feels like second skin. I feel it is pretty much similar to the FitMe foundation, but a much more improvised one. The slightest touch of the finger into the foundation picks up a lot of product. So even while using the sponge applicator a slight press into the foundation is enough to cover almost half of the face. And you have to be quick in blending the foundation into the skin, otherwise if you just pat and leave without blending properly, it kind of dries out and it creates a patch.
This cushion foundation gives a light-dewy and luminous skin finish. Oily skin people like me have to use a loose powder or any compact powder to set it, or else it does feel a little tacky. Since this cushion foundation contains SPF20 it does leave a white cast on the face, which is not that noticable though. It provides enough hydration without making the skin dry. This foundation gives medium-high coverage; medium coverage if you have blemishes, dark spots, some unevenness going around on your face, don’t expect this foundation to cover up all those, and high coverage if you’re really blessed with great skin then I bet you’ll love this cushion. This foundation doesn’t crease nor it settles into fine lines on the face. It gives such a flawless effect to the skin.
This Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation stays on for a long time, literally the whole day. I have the most oily skin in very hot summers and this foundation stayed on for more than 8-10hours even though I was sweating. The foundation did stay intact and I feel that it is waterproof too, even though they don’t claim about it.
Overall, I’m totally loving this Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation. I definitely recommend this to everyone. I don’t think this falls under affordable range coz the quantity we get is just half of the actual bottle foundations. And the extra amount we’re paying is just for the packaging.
