I'm not usually one to follow a trend or beauty craze, I'm usually one to stick to what I know works. 
However, when I saw Maybelline's Dream Flawless Nude Foundation on offer in ASDA I had to join the craze and see what the huge social media hype was all about...

I bought this New Blogger Crazy Maybelline Foundation from ASDA for £4.88 on a promotional offer, so I gave it a try!

I'm usually a Matte and Matte-only foundation kind of girl, switching between my MAC Studio Fix Fluid, Oxygenetix Breathable, (High EndL'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour and Collection Lasting Perfection Foundations (Drugstore) only, I've never strayed between.
But I'd love a sheer less-matte finish foundation so I took the plunge..

Unfortunately, I don't get it!
I don't understand the hype at all?
I'm so disappointed. 

Having read review after review about how truly amazing this foundation is I just don't quite understand why?

It's got the most pointless application method ever.
What on earth am I supposed to do with a tear drop on a stick when applying my foundation?

It's not even a nice pointless tear drop applicator! It's scratchy plastic.

It's not an overly generous amount of bottled foundation.

It's got a sheer coverage.. Ok. Fine
But it doesn't last, the staying power is rubbish!
You need to carry it, a concealer/powder every where with you to keep applying it.
Even with my two favourite Primers, it doesn't last.

But most of all,
It smells horrific!

It's got a pungently medical, detergent smell to it. 
It takes me back to chemistry classes at school and smells like the horrible chemicals you'd get anyone but you to pop into the test tube. 
It's vile.

I don't get it.
I don't get the hype or craze about this foundation and I definitely will not repurchase.

I've tried Drugstore Foundations but I'd definitely buy L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour or Collection Lasting Perfection Foundations over this Maybelline gimmicky foundation any day.

Sorry guys!
