Hello my lovelies,
Are you in shock right now? Yes, I bought a new foundation and have been wearing it for a couple of weeks. I honestly feel like I have betrayed my Kat Von D foundation because it was my go-to for so long.
But it’s time for a change.
So say hello to the Make Up Forever Mat Velvet+!
First, let’s start with what I look for in a foundation.
-Decent amount of product within the packaging
-Needs to match my paleness
I have heard great things about the Make Up Forever brand and I really wanted to try something from their line. Originally, I wanted to try the HD Foundation Stick BUT apparently that formula is not so good for oily skin.
So what better than the Make Up Forever Matt Velvet+? I mean, it has “Mat” in the name.
So, here’s what I think!
At first, I was a little sceptical about how small it was, especially compared to my giant Kat Von D bottle. But when I looked at the mL, it was actually the exact same! Shocking, right??
It has a thick formula that blends into nothingness. I don’t know how. When I first squeezed it out of the bottle I thought it was going to be so cakey but it honestly looks so natural on the skin.
I have extremely oily skin and with the Kat Von D foundation, I could maybe make it a couple of hours (with primer and powder) before my nose and t-zone started to get oily. But, with this foundation, I stay matte all day for at least 8 hours! It’s insane!
This is a buildable medium to full coverage foundation. I’ve found that I get the best coverage when I apply it in thin layers, making sure to let it dry in between. But don’t let the layering scare you. It doesn’t look cakey and I will apply 2-3 thin layers on a daily basis.
I would definitely get this color matched if you can because if I had used my usual method, it wouldn’t have matched!
(My usual method, a.k.a just grabbing the palest shade and hoping for the best…)
I am in the shade #20 and it matches me perfectly. You can hardly tell I have anything on and it’s fantastic.
All-in-all, I love this foundation and definitely recommend if you’re looking for a full-coverage, mattifying foundation!
Thank you so much for reading! See you guys Thursday!
