I am a huge foundation fanatic, mainly because my entire life has been devoted to finding the perfect foundation shade. Well ever since I worked for Prescriptives, I was lucky enough to find a good foundation shade. Then they kind of disappeared and I had to start all over. Then FENTY BEAUTY came out with about 50 foundation shades and I didn't have to look anymore. Companies started to come out with the lightest shades available from marshmallow to alabaster to fairest porcelain. I usually wear the lightest neutral shade from a line. Mass market lines are not so easy though. They don't classify their systems the same. I can usually wear the lightest two shades from Maybelline. So recently I tried the lightest shades from Maybelline's newest foundation. 

It is called Dream Radiant Liquid FoundationGet ready to face the day with radiance! This foundation comes in 20 shades, I tried the second to lightest shade, Fair Porcelain. It worked very well for my skin. Alabaster, the lightest shade, would have worked well too. Dream Radiant Liquid Foundation visibly improves the look of skin, giving you a natural-looking glow you will never want to take off. This lightweight foundation, formulated with hyaluronic acid and collagen, hydrates and smoothes skin while delivering a medium coverage foundation finish for the look of plump skin. This foundation moisturizes skin and gives a natural, radiant look. Delivering up to 12 hours of hydration, this new formula comes in 20 different shades and provides smooth and even-looking skin. It's like the perfect foundation for dry skin. To use, apply this liquid foundation to the skin and blend with fingertips, a sponge or makeup brush. 

Here is the shade chart for the foundation:

You will notice with this foundation shade chart that the majority of the shade choices are in the medium family, not in the darker family. I would highly recommend this foundation for those with dry, medium color skin tones. There are only three shades with light skin tones and the rest are medium in nature. There are only three shades in the darker tones too. The light-to-medium shades are in the second row and the rest are medium shades. This is not recommended for oily skin, normal skin, or combination skin. Only drier skins. 
It can be worn in the summer too if you have dry skin. It doesn't have any significant longer wear time though. 

The foundation itself goes on smoothly and has a light to medium coverage. It smooths on evenly and blends well, looking quite natural. I like how nicely it looks once it has been set with powder. This foundation is a nice change of pace from the full coverage foundations that have been so popular of recent years. 

Here is a picture of me wearing the foundation:
