This is an awful foundation. Very hard to blend, which totally accuntates any dry flakes, looks horrible, chalky and unnatural, for 25 quid you dont get a lot in the bottle either, doesnt cover anything as its meant to be full coverage! Ive only worn it once for a few hours so I cant comment on its lasting ability but it does give a very matte finish

I've tried so many things I've lost count. I always have a hard time matching colors on my own so I finally wen to Sephora one day and asked them to find me a good foundation/concealer that would help me stay matte and they directed me over to the MUFE line. She tried a few colors of the Mat Velvet and we decided 30 was the best choice, not the perfect choice, but the best one. She did me up and I liked it, but felt like I could still see a lot of the post blemish marks that make me feel very self conscious so she went and got a matching concealer from MUFE as well. Now we were talking... I really liked the finish and coverage. I definitely use a brush for applications and it goes on smooth and I can buff it out so it looks pretty natural. I have yet to see any make up that doesn't look like make up on you. I do think it helps keep me matte, but there is a point in the day when I will have to blot a little around the nose area. I'm hoping this will be good for my upcoming wedding in May. The price is pretty comparable to other brand name foundations out there and I don't have to use a ton of it so hopefully, it'll last a while.

I heard great things about this product so I had to try it.The color matched my skin perfectly and it is easily blendable,but I honetly think I could get the same if not better matte coverage with a cheaper foundation.The foundation goes on smooth and covers nicely ,but the coverage doesn't last,by 2 every afterboon, I'm resenting choosing this foundation.Overall opinion....will use the rest of this bottle,but will opt to try something new when its time to re-up.

This foundation was good, but not quite HG. I may have liked it more if it leaned more yellow than pink (I have cooler skin but I prefer a bit of yellow in my foundation to counteract redness). It just wasn't the right color match for me, which is the main reason I didn't like it.

The finish is lovely when applied with a brush or damp sponge, and the coverage is pretty buildable. It didn't keep me matte, however - I had to blot throughout the day.

FInally, I would've preferred if the tube wasn't opaque so I could see how much I've used, although I liked squeezing it onto the brush or sponge.

I've moved onto Lorac Natural Performance in number 2 and I'm liking it much more. Overall, Mat Velvet is a decent foundation but it just isn't right for me.

Perfect for my very oily skin. It dries fast and really sticks to the skin. It provides great coverage without having to pile it on and it allows me to use less concealer. It is a little expensive but definitely worth it. You must give this a try!

I've used many foundations over the years, from drug store brands to high end, and this is my all-time favorite foundation. It lasts throughout the day, even when I get sweaty, and never makes me breakout! I love it, love it, love it.

I wanted to love this because MakeupbyTiffanyD from YouTube highly recommends this. But it caused cystic acne on my nose everytime I used it. It was also too drying for my skin and I have oily skin. Since then, I have turned to mineral makeup which seems to be better for my skin.

You know what? I actually liked this foundation. This is really good for those with oily skin and it has great coverage, BUT I wish that they had more color choices! I just found it too pinkish for my skin tone. I am usually medium to tan in coloring (ranging from NC35-42 depending on seasons). I believe I bought a 35, but it was still too pink for my skin. Im not gonna rate it low just because it didn't work for me, it is still a decent product! It's just not for those with yellow undertones =(

Ehhh ... just ok. Yeah it was mat which is good for oily skin but the coverage was just not what I am comfortable with and didn't last the 8 hours I am at work. I keep on going back to my Estee Lauder Double Wear which I have been using for at least 5 years now! It's worth a try which I am always open to ... but there is much better out there!

Reallly wanted to love it, since I have oily, acne-prone skin that has some redness and marks. It does great with coverage and it definitely dries matte, however I found that after using it for a few days it dried my face out so bad that I started peeling around my nose and mouth. Also looked cakey beneath my eyes. Had to return it :(
