Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse: Dream or Dud?

My go to foundation is Make Up For Ever's HD Foundation, but at $40 a pop it's not super budget friendly. I'm reluctant to use drugstore foundations because of how hard it is to find the perfect match. Well, I used Temptalia's Foundation Matrix to find my match. This is a truly amazing resource. Choose your undertone and skin tone. If you know your MAC shade, you can figure it out. I'm a NC 25.  My match in Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse (around $9) was Nude Light 4. Perfect. The pot is pretty big, I can't find anything to compare it to right now, but it's .64 oz. and it looks like it will last you a long time. The mousse is impossibly light and fluffy. I use my fingers to blend it over my face. I find it fills in my pores, so I suggest using a primer beforehand. Coverage is medium to light but is easily build-able. I have normal/combination skin and it lasts about 4 hours. Definitely set it with powder. I'm obsessed with the texture! And at under $10, it's a winner. I want to try the blush now.
