Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

12 Dec

I’ve been on the look out for a drugstore mattifying pressed powder. I’ve been using MAC Pressed Blot Powder¬†which I really like but a less expensive alternative is always a good thing.

I picked this up this morning at Shopper’s Drugmart – Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. It was on sale for $6.99. I believe that the regular price is around $13 so good deal. There was four colours to choose from. I picked up beige which is the second darkest colour. I normally use Medium or Medium Dark in the blot powder, so I figured this would be a good match. One of the biggest reasons why I purchase the majority of my make up from either Sephora or MAC rather than drugstores is that not being able to try the product drives me nuts! I hate coming home with something that’s completely not what I thought it would be.

Luckily, Dream Matte Powder did not fall into that category. It took away any shine without leaving a noticeable powdery finish. The colour works well with my skin tone.


The packaging is a bit odd. The mirror and sponge swing out from the bottom and its a bit awkward to hold while applying the product.

So far, I’m happy with this powder, especially at the price.
