Maybelline New York Dream Wonder Foundation is Maybelline’s first lightweight fluid foundation. It contains concentrated pigments to deliver medium-to-full coverage that doesn’t look or feel caked on.
The majority of members found that, although the consistency of the liquid was very thin and runny, the foundation was easy to apply, blend and build up for a natural result.
Testers mentioned they could barely feel the foundation on their skin, and most said stayed put all day long – with some members impressed with the fact it withstood boiling summer days. Most members were pleased with the finish, with many mentioning they could easily build the coverage to their desired level without it looking caked-on. Triallers were happy with how smooth and velvety their skin looked, although those with drier skin found the formulation did enhance some dry patches.
Some expressed concerns about the glass packaging and how it would fare if it was dropped on a tiled surface, and testers were divided on the innovative applicator wand. While some found it useful for controlling how much foundation was used, others said the product didn’t drip off of as easily as they hoped.
There were also some concerns expressed about the alcohol content in the foundation*.
Overall, beautyheaven Trial Team members were impressed with this foundation and its natural, lightweight finish on their skin.
“It is super lightweight yet provides awesome coverage. I have been really happy with how well this product has lasted during the day and not needing any touch-ups whatsoever. My face feels silky smooth and I have received so many compliments from people about how natural and beautiful my face looks!” - Beautiful_GorgeousGirl
“It just gives a 'my skin, but better' appearance. You don't look like you're wearing makeup but everything is kind of smoothed out and refined and the redness on my cheeks was covered nicely.” – Dee255
“It is amazingly lightweight, which I think is the biggest drawcard for this product. It really does feel like you aren’t wearing makeup. My only problem was that I found it a bit drying for my combination skin.” – Lara62
“This foundation is pure bliss to apply. The liquid texture is super-smooth, leaving even-toned skin behind as I worked it around my face and neck. This foundation is one of the easiest foundations I have ever owned by far.” – Moonstone
“I am really enjoying reaching for it each day over my other [foundations] and enjoy the unique way in which it is applied and also how it feels on my skin. At the end of the day, my skin usually feels a little greasy and appears a tad shiny, but the foundation reduces this. Perhaps it is the velvety, powder-like finish.” – Candyfairy
“Maybelline Dream Wonder Foundation is the ultimate no makeup makeup! The texture is light and fluid-like, which makes it very easy to apply on the face. I just use my fingers to spread it and it applies evenly. It feels very silky on the skin. So smooth and so soft.” – Delicious Girl

* In response to these concerns, Maybelline New York had this to say:
"Maybelline’s Dream Wonder Foundation contains a minimum effective amount of alcohol to help activate various ingredients, for example, silicone oils. Essentially, the role of silicone oils is to guarantee that the pigments in the formula deliver a smooth and perfect finish on the skin. It also offers a greater long wear property.
We can also promise that the product has been dermatology tested, allergy tested and is non-comedogenic."
