Throwback Thursday #1: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse

Thursday, 6 December 2012

Throwback Thursdays will consist of products that I used to swear by, but am now not so fond of. Or products that I'd completely forgotten about and now love all over again.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in 070 Cocoa
I was watching TV yesterday and apparently, Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse is the UK's #1 foundation.

I loved this foundation to death while I was at school; I started wearing foundation in year 11. I remember being in Superdrug debating whether it'd be a good idea or not. Clearly, I bought it. And for about 2 years, this was my holy grail. The picture above shows the remains of my third...what even is that? Jar/tub/bowl-with-a-lid? I takes me forever to get through a foundation so having gone through 3 in 2 years is about average for me. (I know girls who buy a new foundation every 4 months or so) - but that's not the point.
The point is, I used to love this stuff; medium coverage, light on the skin, pocket-money friendly. 

I used to pay just a little more than £5 for it, and now it's nearing the £8 mark in Superdrug & Boots stores. I guess that's still alright but for a foundation that lasts all of 5 seconds on the skin, I'd don't expect that kind of price.
Maybe that's just the cheapskate in me. *shrug. Quite a few girls that I've spoken to about this feel the same; it used to be an amazing and cheap product, but now it's getting too pricey and the formula's not as brilliant as it was once thought.

Despite how much I used to love it, I really don't miss it now that I don't use it anymore.
In fact, I'm quite looking forward to throwing it out now I've made this post!

Have you got any products that you once loved but have now kicked to the curb? Or are there any products that you've rekindled the flame for?
Let me know in the comments section, or tweet me @JanelleBlogs.
