First things first...this powder is not the best when it comes to oil control. I kind of bought it for that reason because the YT reviews paint it as a good oil control powder. However, my nose still gets really oily and I have to blot after only 2 or 3 hours. BUT, this foundation has other good qualities that make me still give it 4 stars. I don't use this powder alone. I use it in conjunction with MUFE Face and Body. The F&B is super dewy so I bought this powder to combat the dewiness and also to give me a bit more coverage. It is very natural looking. It doesn't go on cakey at all and I love that because I hate looking like I have makeup on. It's super lightweight and you can't feel it. It covers pores and gives your skin a naturally smooth finish. Even though my nose gets oily, my forehand, inner cheeks, and chin stay matte throughout the day and only get a little dewy.I also like that this powder stays put on your face. After I blot, my face looks just as nice and freshly applied as it did when I first applied it hours ago.

So... after doing so much research on Amazon, Sephora, and Ulta to find the best foundation for my super oily face, and trying a few liquid foundations, I ultimately bought this since I wouldn't have to worry about streaks from makeup brushes, or spending extra money on a makeup brush for a liquid foundation. I have a great match for my skin; you can still obviously tell I have makeup on because I have a naturally more tan forehead and this hides the 'discoloration', as it's called by the cosmetics industry. PC/Feminist rant: Um... ok. 'Discoloration'. There's nothing wrong w/ my skin. It's not an anomaly. The coverage is good, oil control isn't amazing, but the thing that bugs me the most is that the powder rubs off so easily! It's in the nature of the powder foundation, but if you have allergies like me, and are constantly blowing your nose, then this isn't for you.

If you have oily skin this will not last on your face for more than 4 hours. It started to flake off and settle in to my pores. For a 35 dollar price tag, I expect my powder foundation to not do this. Even cheap cover girl's powder foundation lasts on skin longer than this. Will be returning.

I decided to try out a high end powder foundation and went for the Duo Mat after reading such great reviews. This powder is in a sleek magnetic closure packaging with a cute half size mirror and sponge under the powder. I got the color 203 and it matches my light-medium skin perfectly. The staying power is average on my combo-oily skin but I don't think it controlled my oils that much. It does provide good coverage though and I like using with on it's own when I'm in a hurry to do my makeup. Overall I do like it but i'm not sure if this is better than regular drugstore powder foundation in terms of finish, staying power and oil control

I'm a fan of this powder. I've heard some good things about this powder from a few friends and a few of my fave beauty youtubers, mainly Casey Holmes. Anyway! I was due for a new powder at the time to set my bb cream so I was in Sephora and already knew I wanted this powder. I didn't do Sephora's new color match technology, the girl just swatched 2 colors on my cheeks and I was matched to 202. It is a half shade darker than my current color but since its winter, my skin will be warming up a bit once spring comes. I use this every morning to set my garnier bb cream and it sets flawlessly. I do get minor oil in my t-zone, but no matter what products i use, i still get a bit of oil everyday coming through. I do touch-up once in the late afternoon w/this powder and I'm good for the rest of the day. I am a fan of the sponge it comes with. I also love the packaging. its black but there clear strip where you see the color. I will repurchase this from now on.

This powder blew me away. I have been using it for a little over two weeks so I will update is my mind changes. But so far I'm blown away. I love powder foundations to lightly dust over my liquid foundation. I have been using Mac studio Fox powder for about a year. And loreal true match powder for two years. But this one ( mat duo) is almost for perfect for me. My skin type had changed since I have birth. My skin type is usually dry but I'm a combo of normal and oily t zone. I have been using the Revlon colorstay and this mat duo powder together and I do not get a shiny t zone or need to reapply any makeup through out the day. My makeup look and stay flaweless throughout the day. The powder is packed tightly and it's not a lot of product for the price. I wouldn't call it full coverage but I think it's medium but buildable. I use the color 214 and my Mac reference is nc50 and nw44. I wear the Revlon colorstay in 400 caramel in the normal to oily skin it's a perfect match. Mac colors aren't to much of a perfect match. I will continue to purchase this powder. Also it does not accentuate any dry patches. So dry skin people should be okay. Just apply lightly. One of favorite YouTube makeup is socialite life ( Sandy) she wears this powder all the time and her makeup stays flawless. Hope I helped someone. Its better to send a little more to look better sometimes.

When I first bought this from Sephora I was so excited to think my skin would stay matte ALL day long. I have the shade 214 and it fits almost perfectly. After a month, I realized my skin doesn't stay matte that long (even with mattifying products to prep). According to the ladies at Sephora it's the best mattifying powder they have so there's nothing else I can run to. For $34, I need my face to be flawless through life & this only lasts about 4 hours on my face WITH a primer. So this is a no go for me. Wish I could return but I've already hit pan and I'd feel bad even trying to.

All the bad reviews amaze me this works perfect for me with my primed and poreless by too faced and revlon colorstay. It gives my face a perfect matte glow and the best part is I don't ever touch up my face from when I put it in at 8 til 5/6 at night. Plus it's always humid and very hot 90+. The only thing is that it is a bit more expensive and I find it too similar to sephoras pressed powder. Yet the only reason I buy makeup forever over sephoras is because my shade, 207 just can't be replaced by their colors. It's such a unique color and it's my perfect shade which makes me love the product more. I've repurchased this three times in the past 5 years(everytime I run out). Great product definitely my go to powder and I've been through many powders ( makeup forever hd finish, primed &poreless powder, bareminerals mineral veil, sephoras pressed powder, Almay, revlon, etc) I also just like how if used with a very fluffy powder brush it feels light and airy even in too of revlon which is a very thick foundation ! The great thing is when you go to sephora you can just test it yourself:)

This has to be my favorite powder. Matched my skin perfectly stayed matte and will only go cakey if you keep applying throughout the day. Blotting sheets do help with the oil instead of re applying. Probably the only powder that doesn't make my skin irritated or break me out. Lasted me about 2-3 months!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Beautiful silky MATTE, medium to full coverage (depending on application method) foundation. Can be used to set other foundations. For my very oily skin, I prefer this over Lancome's dual finish powder foundation. Edit 9/2015: I still really love this formula but I can't find a good shade match for my skin.
