A long-lasting, oil-free mattifying powder foundation for normal to combination skin types. Provides a shine-free finish that covers blemishes and other imperfections and perfectly evens out the skin tone.
I normally use Face and Body because I like really light/sheer coverage, and it is my absolute HG foundation, but lately I am just bored with liquid foundation in general. I went in and got color matched and they matched me in 209. It looks lighter in person, but once you get it on a white sponge or a brush, it appears darker. Temptalia's FM says it is equivalent to F&B 18 or 34, which would be dead on as those are the two shades I use throughout the year.
This product, when applied over a moisturized face, gives such natural coverage that can be applied sheer or built up to full coverage with a sponge. I would only recommend this to those with oily skin, or those who moisturize intensively throughout the day. I didn't find it transferred much at all when I set it with Mario Badescu's Facial Spray. The packaging is really sleek and sturdy. My only gripe would be that if you don't use a proper primer, enlarged pores will show through.
I am definitely applying for a civil partnership with this company as soon as possible. <3
This is definitely my go- to foundation. I have very sensitive, combination skin and this foundation gives me a flawless, airbrushed finish without looking greasy or cakey. It covers any blemishes or imperfections that i have and is so easy to apply, definitely one of the staple products in my makeup collection.
I have extremely oily skin that feels greasy and disgusting halfway through the day and most recently started breaking out a lot. I had heard so many good things about this foundation and finally caved in. and the verdict is that ... I absolutely love this foundation!
I put this on after the Body Shop's Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream, primer, concealer on my blemishes, and then buff it out with a face brush. It leaves my skin looking so extremely flawless and airbrushed. It also is the only thing that has stopped my face from becoming a walking disco ball.
During the summer, I want something that will help me deal w/ my oily skin... and this is it! It manages to give me a dewey natural finish after setting w/ a setting spray, and lasts a good 6-8 hours. The only thing I dislike about this is that it does transfer... so boyfriend's t-shirts beware!
If you're not super clumsy about forgetting what's on your face, it's pretty good! I learned my lesson the first time I saw foundation on the bf's black shirt and never made the mistake of rubbing my face against his chese ever again! This foundation is too good to waste on his stinkin' black shirt... =P
Does not make my face feel tight or dry like Bare Minerals did... [I tried ALL of their foundation variations and they all made my face feel tight and itchy!] so it was a miracle I found this stuff after trudging through numerous attempts to find a powder makeup that looked good and made me feel good.
I've heard such RAVES about this product, but after using this product for months here are my thoughts.
PROS: *This product is wonderful for individuals who have amazing skin and need a little coverage. * The compact is easy and convenient. * Amazing matte finish, no oily shiny face ever when using this powder. * Replaces setting powder and foundation, this is a two in one product!
CONS: *Not good for dry skin because I find this product even shows up the dryness of one's skin even more. * Not the best coverage for someone with acne prone skin such as myself. * Pricey product! * Not too many color selections.
FINAL THOUGHTS: * Maybe when my skin improves this might work for me, but as of now I need a product with more coverage. This does not suit my dry skin.
I hear alot of great things about this product, however when I started using it I ended up not really liking it. It didnt do much for me, and left my kinda powdery. Kind of unfortunate considering its a pretty pricey item. =/
Recently switched from revlon colorstay liquid foundation to powder, I felt like my face changed on me and suddenly needed powder for my oily skin. MUF was my first high-end powder foundation I tested for a full coverage. I'm absolutely in love with it! Defiantly will Repurchase!
Not sure if this is the shade I have but full coverage lasts all day best applied with deluxe brush and circular motion matte and holds up makeup forever has never failed me absolutely love this product
This is THE BEST foundation, EVER. I've used Make Up For Ever for about seven years, but I just recently discovered Duo Mat. I layer this over Smashbox's Studio Skin and I don't need concealer. It's like waving a magic wand over your face that leaves behind pure perfection. Strangers stop me on the street and in elevators to compliment me on my "gorgeous" skin. Well, if they only knew how bad I look without the Duo Mat. Even layered over a light liquid foundation it feels weightless on the skin. It has a matte finish without looking powdery and it keeps my skin shine-free all day long. I have very fair, sensitive skin and I can pack this stuff on as much as I want and it never clogs my pores. Now that I've tried Duo Mat I can't imagine using anything else!
I have used this for about 3 years, this is a product I will never be without. This matches my skin complexion to the t. No caky feel, goes on smooth, wears well. No complaints!
