I love this product! I have combo skin, and this actually stays on my face all day! (With smashbox primer beneath it). I love the coverage, and it has a smooth application. This will definitely be a re-purchase!
This is refreshing to use after having to deal with drug store brand foundations that never stayed on more than four hours. It was so annoying and frankly embarrassing when I had to work all day and It's a customer service job so I have to be confident and happy and whenever I'd go to the bathroom and come back I'd be uncomfortable because my makeup was gone. Anyways. THIS SAVED ME. Not recommended for people with dry skin but I have an oily t-zone and in the places I get most oily I apply more there. I use hourglass veil primer before and benefit powder in porcelain after. This stuff doesn't come off when I apply it in that way. Pricey, sure. But worth it if you're fed up with drug store brands ripping you off with products that they claim last all day. The only thing is I've been using it for a week and the bottle feels really light and a lot of air comes out when I squeeze it... Not sure if this is normal or whatever. If it were a pump that would be so much better. If you get this, don't overdue it because you don't want to look flakey and I've noticed sometimes when a lot comes out my skin doesn't look as nice. Overall, great improvement from drugstore brands and I did my research on other products supposed to help oily skin and this seemed to be the winner out of most sites I have personally searched.
So far my favourite foundation!!!
This foundation is absolutely amazing! I find the coverage for my face gives a flawless look and smoothes out my skin especially for me I have acne. My skin is oily-comb skin and I find the coverage is long last wearing and it doesnt make my face look shiny. Its such a great product! love makeup forever cosmetics
Next to Shiseido's liquid foundation, this is the best I've ever used. I've been using MAKE UP FOR EVER MAT VELVET+ for 4 years now and it's literally like magic. I have combination skin, ie. oily T-zone, and since this product is oil-free it helps me not look greasy after a long day of wearing. All I do to maintain is occasional blotting with a oil-absorbent sheet and my skin looks flawless and acne-free.
Amazing go-to foundation for extra matt coverage
I love this foundation - I use it on almost all of my clients either on top of MUFE HD or MUFE Face & Body or by itself. Does require a moisturising base underneath it because it can make dry skin appear flakey. Doesn't require much powdering, just the t-zone. Photographs beautifully and doesn't oxidise!
This foundation is fantastic. I absolutely love it. I am very pale and I find it very difficult to find a foundation that matches me without oxidizing over a period of time. I also have pink undertones as well as freckles which adds to my trouble of finding a good foundation. I personally feel like this foundation neutralizes the pink in my skin and gives me an amazing coverage and helps hide my freckles. I love full coverage foundation and most that I have tried are very drying,which my skin is already very dry and I really don't need that, and I find this doesn't dry my skin out anymore than it already is. I use the Estee Lauder "Hydrationist Moisture Creme" and my Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation primer with the foundation and it works marvelously. I give this foundation a 10 out of 10.
This foundation is lovely. I wore it the other day mixed with a bit of my OCC Y0 and it was PERFECT. It stayed matte and lovely all day, even though I usually end up shiny and my makeup kind of melts off - this didn't! It was awesome. For me, it wasn't drying, and it just made my skin look flawless. Plus, it doesn't hide my freckles too too much. Which is always nice. The only thing is that I mix it with a lighter, yellower shade and it's perfect, so I might end up getting a different colour next time.
I was recommended this product by a Sephora employee because of my oil slick face and acne scarring. As anyone with oily or acne-prone skin has also done, I've tried basically every brand of foundation and a whole bunch of diff combos. This was amazing. Without looking cakey it covered everything flawlessly, kept my skin matte and it didn't sink into my pores.
Best liquid foundation for super oily skin
I have super oily skin to begin with and the kind of oil I have is, if i don't put any milk of magnesia or oily skin daily control cream from Proactiv, then my face will be swimmin' in oil (yes, it's that kind of oily skin). However, one day I accidently forgot to put those products on and instead just put the foundation on and it really keeps my face mostly matte. Better than other products when I didn't have the extra 'face prep' products to use. I always used to look for foundation specific for oily skin. Anyways, this product is the best I've used. Prior to buying/using this foundation I was using NYX HD foundation which was cool at first but didn't really cut it in the end. This foundation (makeup forever one) has really really good coverage. I am very satisfied and a little goes a long way. They have a ton of different shades so the varieties good. I recommend this product for woman with oily skin.
