Review of Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder by angelixia07
This loose powder has the most lovely finish I have ever experienced from any other loose powder and that includes the great Chanel & Laura Mercier ones, both of which are very good but this beats them both in terms of the finish. The powder is extremely fine and goes on invisibly no matter what condition my skin is in. It doesn't settle on the dry patches or enhance my pores. My skin type is a combination of oily and dry acne-prone. This powder doesn't break me out, doesn't cling to dryness or enhance it but it also does not control oil. It's important to know before buying this product that it will not do anything to help control oil. It is an excellent loose powder that finishes off your foundation very well, locks all the makeup in place and puts an incredible smoothing, diffusing finish over your skin. The finish is just so flattering and makes everything look so much more perfect and soft. It is amazing that something can have that effect without adding any additional coverage. I generally use a very light coverage foundation/tinited-moisturizer on a daily basis (TheBalm BalmShelter and Mac Face & Body) and finish it off with this powder. The effect is that of very light, natural coverage but of the most diffused smoothing effect. I've even layered this over a moderate coverage foundation and it still adds a more perfecting, diffusing touch to the skin. When compared to the Laura Mercier and Chanel powders, I find that the Laura Mercier one controls oil a bit better but looks generally invisible and doesn't enhance the finish like the MUFE one; the Chanel powder is a bit more brightening but also just goes on invisible and also doesn't add that extra touch. I highly recommend this powder. I don't think oily skin can be controlled by products anyway and I use this frequently for the beautiful finish it imparts.
