New textures, sheer coverage, and innovative formulations highlighted the Maybelline New York launch at New York’s Cult Studios earlier this month. The products, arranged in a labyrinth of counters and large screen projections of fashion runways, makeup, and New York street scenes, provided a colorful, interactive environment for sampling, testing, and education.
The new collection features a next-generation foundation, called Dream Nude Airfoam Lightweight Foam Foundation, a water-based, sheer, buildable foam, that covers with a light, nude finish, features an SPF 16 to protect the skin from the sun, and is available in a range of 12 shades. It is the latest iteration in the Maybelline New York Dream Franchise, which previously introduced Dream Matte Mousse, Dream Liquid Mousse, Dream Smooth Mousse, and now offers its lightest weight foundation, with an easy to use foam pump, to deliver ultra-fine aerated pigments. Dream Nude Airfoam retails for $10.99 and is one of three sensorial formulas, along with Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer and Dreamy Blouncy Blush that make up the new Dream regimen. Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer, a gel-based formula, combines the camouflaging benefits of a concealer with a brightener, available in six shades, $7.99; and Dream Bouncy Blush, an oil-free, sheer wash of color formulated with silicone elastomers, has a light feel, is said to melt into skin like a cream blush, and is available in ten shades, $7.99.
