Amongst all variety of foundations available in market, I personally like the foundations that give full coverage and are matte. I have oily and acne prone skin which takes a long lasting matte full coverage foundation to cover my imperfections caused by acne. Today, I am reviewing Makeup For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation in shade 65. The foundation comes in a squeezable tube based tiny bottle. I felt the tube was quite small for a a full sized foundation on comparison with standard size of foundations.
Price – $36
The foundation claims to be –
The consistency of the foundation is quite thick, it is not runny at all. The foundation should be applied right away upon taking out of the bottle as it gets dried up quite easily. The foundation feels very smooth on application and can be built for full coverage. Just one layer will not be enough for those seeking a full coverage; single layer will give a light to medium coverage only. My skin feels great after applying it and it stays in place for good 6-7 hours which is great for oily and acne prone skin. I recommend setting the foundation with a loose powder or compact powder for prolong wear.
Though I am not sure about the foundation being water-resistant but for sure it does not melt or crease easily. This is one of the best foundations that I have used for acne/oily skin. I highly recommend this Makeup Forever foundation to anyone who is looking for a long lasting good foundation for problematic skin.
