♥ Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Fluid-Touch Foundation

This foundation has quite the complex name, huh? When I first bought this, I hated it. I really, really didn't like it. It just didn't look good on me. I found it super runny and hated the consistency, the applicator, the bottle... I just didn't get along with it at all. Now it's all I ever reach for of a morning before work. It looks like you've got nothing on your skin and stays put all day long. I apply this to my face straight from the little wand (though the bottle says to drop it onto your finger and then apply to the face) but I'd rather not get my foundation all over my hands. I then buff this into my skin with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and though the coverage is fairly light, it can be built up. Due to it being such a thin liquid, it works into the skin effortlessly and while it covers just enough to make your skin flawless, like it suggests, it also makes it look like you're not wearing anything on your skin at all. It's an all round winner. I'll definitely be picking up another bottle of this to see me through the rest of the summer months and for me, it's the perfect foundation to wear to work because there's no point in having the absolute best make up on for it! I do think there's a chance I apply way more than what is actually needed, so I need to tweak the way I use this, but it really is such a lightweight foundation and really perfect for the warmer weather of the summer months. One thing I will state is that this stuff really clings to dry patches. I think this is what caused me to disagree with it so much when I first purchased it. My skin was in awful condition and to say I was suffering badly with spots is an understatement. It highlighted every little flaw but now my skin is so much clearer than it was a few months ago, this works perfectly. If you have pretty clear skin, though, it should work brilliantly to give the exact amount of coverage desired, yet still manage to let your own skin shine through.

What do you think about the applicator? Let me know if you've tried this foundation and how you apply it, I'd love to find out what works for you.
