This is one of those so-so foundations I don't hate or love but I'd just rather spend money on something else. There is no ideal color match for me in this. Porcelain is extremely pink, Shell is very yellow, Cashmere almost works but is slightly too dark and Sand almost works but is slightly too peach. In Becca's other foundation, the Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme, Cashmere is my perfect shade but in different foundation formulas the colors don't necessarily translate.Oily skins who expect a finish such as EL Double Wear or Revlon Colorstay from a product named "Ever-Matte Shine Proof" will be disappointed. It doesn't stay matte all day on combination to oily skin and isn't shine-proof. However, the formula isn't a complete disaster. A light application with a sponge allows skin to show through and the product doesn't emphasize textural flaws such as pores or fine lines. You can apply more heavily if you want to. It's semi-matte rather than matte, but at least it doesn't appear mask-like as truly matte foundations tend to do. Becca's highlighting products in Moonstone and Champagne Pop are special enough to tempt my wallet but this foundation isn't thrilling. An exchange is on the horizon.

I love love love this foundation because it's the most olive/yellow foundation I've ever come across. I have the color olive and I'm Asian nc35-37. Matches so well and really brightens up my complexion. This foundation has medium coverage but I find it difficult to build up to full coverage so this is an everyday natural foundation for me. I have combo skin and this is decent at controlling oil and doesn't highlight dry patches. The squeeze tube is lightweight, hygienic and ideal for traveling. The wear is impressive, lasting 15 hours with minimal fade. One of my fave foundations simply because of the color match. This is similar to makeup forever mat velvet except 10xs better!

I wear OLIVE. Im an nc37-42 shade. Im back! Been a reviewer since 2006 and now im 27 yrs old i have learned heaps from my make up experiences. I work at priceline and i literally know each make up out there esp the drugstore ones. So im a bit more interested and curious with hi end ones. Anyway this Becca ever matte foundation is perpetually the best!! I am SERIOUS! Im a guy who suffers from over oily skin and i dunno if it's the testosterone or something. I see it as a curse but it created an avenue for me to try products. From chanel to dior to MAC, ive tried it. Ive learned to accept that no foundation will keep the oil. Until I purchased Becca! After the 5hour mark usually my nose will shine and literally grease up but the Becca controlled it. I cannot stop staring at the mirror. I dint even remove it after work and i kept it for 12hrs. All good! The color match is perfect as well. MAC is too peachy , dior is too grayish yellow, chanel is pinkish but this is by far the most exact of all! If you girls have tried the Hourglass immaculate foundation, theyre kinda similar but the Becca has the best oil control factor iIm buying the ultimate coverage foundation next and buy another of the becca ever matte foundation. Please Becca do not d/c this magical product! I really mean it.

Becca's ever-matte foundation is some really great stuff. I have oily and acne-prone skin. This foundation has not broken me out. It gives me a matte finish, but it's not a "flat" matte. After a little while, the matte finish begins to change due to the oil coming through, but it's a naturally gradual change. Like, I'll go from matte to demi matte to natural over about 6 hours. I do set this with powder and/or matte finishing spray. The color selection isn't great. However, at the time I bought it, I was a weird in-between shade and the best match was Noisette; then winter came and it was too dark; but now it is perfect! It gives good coverage with just one application (but right now my skin is pretty clear). It's blendable; I usually use a "buffing" foundation brush or my fingers to apply this and either way it looks good. Idk, I really like this foundation, and I'd buy it again when I run out, but it's expensive, so I'd say if you're on a budget, you could probably find something better that is either 100% worth every penny or just something less expensive.

I asked for a sample of this in Shell whilst purchasing a Beach Tint, and I must say this was the best foundation at holding up on my oily T-zone for what I believe was up to five hours, before I noticed breakthrough. And let me tell you this: I did not apply powder over this with fear of caking my face. I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely my forehead and nose looked when in normality it becomes an oil slick by lunch break at work. A reaction I did not receive from the popular Estee Lauder DoubleWear, that just looked and felt awful.When I did look closer though, there definitely was oil, but it did not go manic and distribute itself on my T-zone, but rather was more disciplined. It made it so easy to just pat a blotting paper on the area to absorb it, but that's where problems surfaced. The sebum seemed to have dissolved the foundation around it, and once I blotted it became an awful mess. Trying to pat and blend whatever was left with clean fingers seemed to make it worse, it just picked up foundation after foundation! It was utterly humiliating, and even though powder helped improve the issue I still got an occasional stare from colleagues.I thought I had finally found the no-fuss foundation that was a match for my pale olive skin, medium/full coverage, matte without picking up dry patches, and oil controlling all at once. I am not going to give this a rating of 3 because it really is a wonderful product, was it not for the easy smearing. Heartbreaking is an understatement.

I was super disappointed in this product. I went into Sephora looking for a medium/full coverage foundation that would keep me matte and cover acne scars. It did not keep me oil free nor did it cover my acne. It is most definitely not a build-able foundation, and when 2 layers are applied the foundation looks extremely cakey and separates. For it being Becca and for the price of $42 it was an utter dissapointment and I would rather purchase Revlon Colorstay again than to ever repurchase the Becca ever-matte.

I was looking for a foundation that would cover up my acne scars, stay matte and combat my oily skin while at the same time NOT break me out. I got this in the shade: Olive. For reference I am the shade Tawny in Estee Lauder Double Wear, Shade #8 in Clinique Stay Matte, Sand in Almay TLC, Shade #203 in MUFE Mat Duo and so forth.The shade is way too yellow for my light-tan medium skin! I have yellow undertones but this almost made me feel like I was a Simpsons character. I think my skin would fair well with the lighter shades before Olive which are Noisette or Nude I believe. The coverage is about light-medium. It's definitely not full coverage, if you build it up, it will look cakey.It doesn't keep you as matte as ELDW would but it holds up fairly well without a primer and setting powder. I definitely think that it would perform better used with a good primer and powder. The reason why I would not be repurchasing this is because this foundation clogs my pores and it's definitely not for sensitive, acne-prone skin. It didn't give me huge cysts but it did give me clogged pores and an an uneven skin texture. No sense in using makeup that will make my skin worse...It's going back to Sephora!

It's a decent foundation. Very light coverage (does not conceal my acne scars at all) and it is long wearing. However, I find that my skin is still oily after a few hours :( & the foundation begins to separate around my nose, resulting in patches. Mind you, I even added milk of magnesia to my moisturizer PRIOR to applying the foundation, as well as priming with the Becca Ever Matte Perfecting Primer AND setting with a mattifying powder. And to think I added the extra precautions to assure a matte face all day long and it failed. Meh, I will continue to use but I will not repurchase. It's $42!Pros:-Long wearing-Matte for a FEW hours-Blush/bronzer are still in tactCons:-Doesn't conceal ANYTHING-Separates around the nose-Doesn't combat my oil-Can be cakey if applied a second layerI got the shade Noisette. For reference, I am Mac NC37-40, Urban Decay Naked Skin 6, Missha Signature/Complete BB Cream in No.27.3/17/15 - Okay so I ended up applying MORE milk of magnesia prior to applying this foundation and I was oil-free for most of the day except for my nose. I will continue to apply using this method, however I feel that a foundation that claims to be "matte" does not need any extra precautions. Practice what you preach! xo~

I bought the Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation after running out of my Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation and I'm going to have to stand its glass bottle upside down so that I can get the last drops out of it which is a bit annoying. Which leads me to what I like a lot about the Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation which is its packaging, a soft squeezy tube that keeps out all of the air. I've tried out this foundation so far only once during the winter time and I have very oily skin although these days I use an IUD coil that controls my oiliness a bit. This foundation stayed on my face the whole day and stayed very matte yet I didn't even use a lot of powder at all after I applied it nor did I have to re-touch with powder at all. I'd say this foundation gives the skin a light to medium coverage or medium coverage and its ability to give a person medium coverage or possibly more should be quite good as its texture seems to be buildable.Around 10 to 11 hours of wear, the area of my face surrounding my nose and the tip of my nose started to shine just a tiny bit but that was all I think. I will need to test this particular foundation for transferability on to white paper and white or light clothes however as I'm not sure because when I wore it the first time I was wearing black and didn't touch any paper. Plus I'd like to see how this foundation will perform during the summer. I'm a MAC NC45, an Estée Lauder Rich Caramel, a Bobbi Brown Warm Almond and a Fashion Fair Butterscotch so my color in Becca is Tobacco. Tobacco is a very good match for me, a light to medium brown with definite yellow undertones without appearing too light or washed out.
