This is a beautiful matte foundation that wears long. It's not so matte that it makes you look dead, but it has a natural finish. I'd choose this over the MUF HD Foundation. Don't get me wrong, I like the HD foundation, but it doesn't stay long on me. (I have combination-oily skin)
It is true that this foundation is thicker than its sister product (hd), but I simply love the matte finish it gives. I have oily skin. I don't need to do touch ups during my work hours (8 to 5) as much as I do when using the HD foundation. I love this foundation and will surely buy again. I have Asian yellow skin olive tone, number 40 is a match on me. Please do not discontinue this product line.
This product does not break me out and I love how it feels on my skin. It covers redness really good for me and the smell doesn't bother me at all. The color matches mine almost perfect and I have a hard time finding products that look like my own skin. This has a very natural finish to me but I still get a little oily on my nose. I hope this helps:)
i like the product so far and if you guys want to know if any cosmetics will cause break out go to cosdna. i actually analyze the matte MUFE and theres not comodgency in it or nothing that will irrate acne prone skin & sensitve. it also says its not comodgenic continued >>
This was the ver first foundation I ever bought (unfortunately it was a tad to pink for my skin tone so I never was able to use it)
Recently I found this same bottle laying around still full and I decided to give it a go (I know scary, it might have gone bad already). But I ended up falling in love with it more than my previous foundations.
Im an NC42 in MAC and definitely has a beige/yellow undertone and even if this product was pink toned, it was blendable on my skin.
-packaging does NOT say what shade I am (Im gonna have to match myself at Sephora today)
-Needs more yellow based color shades
-Great PACKAGING overall, cheapy squeeze bottle made of plastic but it served the purpose, i was able to control the amount that I need.
-THIS PRODUCT DELIVERS! Its not overly mattifying but it does leave a mattified finish that doesnt look ashy
-Dont know if.it has SPF but it looks great in PHOTOS
-Looks even better OUTDOORS on both daylight and night time
**I wore half of my face MUFE Mat Velvet+ and the other half MUFE Face&Body and it looked way better than the Face and Body!
I cant believe how underrated this product is. MUFE concentrates their attention to the crappy HD foundation and the Oil Sleek Face & Body when this is definitely one of its best!
Price is $36 I believe and for its quality, I say thats cheap! Will definitely repurchase continued >>
I bought this during the winter, so it's obviously too drying for my combination face right now, but I expect that in the Summer this will do great. Great color match, doesn't make me have ghost face in photos, good i'd say medium coverage, great for oily skin. It's a bit hard to blend, though, so I'd recommend clean fingers. And use a good moisturizer underneath, because this foundation will suck the moisture right away.
The only foundation that doesn't make my nose shiny and I don't even need to use powder afterwards. Really like this one.
It does settle into pores, but with Clinique's Porefessional it looks great.
I went to MUFE counter to buy the HD foundation, thinking it would give a medium-buildable coverage. It looked horrible,showed every tiny scar and I have not exfoliated my face in 2 days and it really emphasized those areas where old skin built-up. Sales rep recommended I try Mat Velvet foundation which I fell in love with. The color is a true match, the texture is not masky at all, it stays all day. The only downside is the packaging, which comes in a squeeze out plastic bottle. Can be tricky to get out the right size. Other than that, highly recommend it.
For someone looking to achieve as flawless and naturally matte complexion as possible and have acne, acne scars, blackheads or milia, this is a HG foundation. It's delightfully full coverage withought feeling heavy and like a super makeup. Besides the staying power (About 5 hours after set with a powder, stays absolutely forever with a silicone primers) this foundation is photoshoot professional with the feel of a satiny lotion. The scent is a clean typical foundationy smell! This applies perfectly and looks airbrushed even when using fingers. Using this method, a little goes a long way. It's also beautiful with a stippling brush application, but i find this way you need ALOT of product. This is sad because in my opinion, it's truly too pricey to not use sparingly and it's such a small volume. Full coverage minus that awful cakey feeling when you find it hard to move your features! You know, when you try to scrunch your nose? Also still looks good, although not matte, if oil seeps through or you sweat. So close to perfect!
First, let me start by saying that for a couple years now, the MUFE HD has been my holy grail (and still is). I decided to try the Mat Velvet, since I have pretty oily skin, and I figured if the HD is great, surely this will be as well. The coverage is really good.. this is definitely what I would call a medium to full coverage foundation. If you're looking for heavy coverage and a matte finish, this will surely do the job. I did still get a little oily around my t-zone after a couple hours though, so the matte look wasn't outrageously long lasting.
Now, for the negatives. This broke me out terribly. I'm talking cystic pimples on my chin that happened one right after another. I had four or five in a row.. one would come up just as another one was healing. It was a nightmare. It took me a while to realize it was the foundation causing this, because every time a zit would come up, I would pack on the foundation to help cover (which it did work well for, it was just very counter-productive). In my opinion, it doesn't matter what the overall finish of the foundation is.. if it breaks me out, it's banished in my makeup bag. I've looked over the ingredient and I'm thinking it was the corn starch in it that was irritating my skin.. so just beware if you're sensitve!
I really like this foundation. I have oily acne prone skin (dehydrated from acne treatments). This foundation gives really good coverage that you can build up and it still looks natural. I would stay away from it though if you have dry skin as It really clings to dry spots. For oily skin it is great and it lasts all day. Sadly it causes me to breakout. Everytime I use it I wake up the next day with huge pimples. Its probably from the sodium chloride in it which is known to clog pores. Otherwise it would be an HG for me.
