When I think of a perfect foundation, three things on my mind are: no cakey look, light weight and non oily. I picked up the Maybelline Matte mousse recently just to try it out considering it had great reviews online. I must admit, I just love the container. Small, cute and portable. When you open the product, you see a clayish mousse inside. The product is supposed to be 100% Matte perfection, air-soft feel and ideal for normal to oily skin.
How to use ? Take some on your fingers and dab it on your face. Then take a brush, spread it and even it out. If you use your hands to spread it, you will end up with a cakey look.

Pros: So what’s great about this product ? It’s light, buildable and smooth. I have a very oily skin, but this just worked fine for me. It did not clog my pores and did not make my skin more oily, so basically I don’t break out with this (Yay !). Its also fragrance-free, dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested and non-comedogenic which are great positives. It also lasts for a long time, I wore it for 8 hours at a stretch and it stayed, despite not using too much of it.
Cons: Getting the right colour match was a challenge for me. I bought one and then realised it was too white for me. So take your time when you buy it. I use a Nude Light 4 currently. Also, the quantity is not much. So you may find yourself buying a new one within a month, if you use it everyday.
