Maybelline's Dream Matte Powder is a pressed powder that you can use as a finishing/setting powder. This provides sheer, almost zero coverage, has a silky smooth texture and has really wonky packaging. I picked this up in the colour, Light 2-3. I think my drugstore was changing the packaging so they had these on for pretty cheap and I had a coupon so I paid like $3 for it. I was interested in purchasing this after watching many youtube videos on how great it was. Once I got it, I was really surprised by the lack of coverage, thinking it would be a pressed powder foundation, but no this is not that, the coverage is zero in my opinion.
The packaging is really weird and bulky. The compact opens up two ways, first to reveal the powder that you see through a clear window in the front, and then the back part swivels out to reveal a mirror and on top of the mirror is a powder puff. The powder puff is pretty cheap and useless, I would throw this away after using it a few times. When opening the back part, I often get the puff folded and stuck in the back, which is annoying. I know a lot of people have gripes with the packaging, as it's not the traditional compact packaging. If you pulled off the back of the packaging, it could be less bulky, but then you wouldn't have a mirror in the back, which sucks.
You can tell in the picture above that this powder is pretty transparent, and once you blend it in it's gone. So it doesn't really matter what shade you get, I could of picked up the deep tan or whatever and still probably wouldn't see any colour on my face. I would recommend this as a blot powder for those of you with oily skin, it can work well for that. I use this, very rarely however, to set my makeup by lightly dusting it after applying liquid foundation. I would not re-purchase this as it isn't essential for me and the product is not what I thought it would be.
