Hands down one of my favorite foundations of all time. I first began using it about 6 years ago, and have tried many others from drugstore to boutique, but have gone back to Mat Velvet+ time and again. This is an excellent foundation for oily skin, providing excellent coverage with minimal product. The finish is exactly as named--matte and velvety--yet almost unnoticeable and light while wearing. I will be utterly broken-hearted if MUFE ever discontinues this product. I heart Mat Velvet+!! Read Less

before starting cosmetology school i didnt wear foundation ever for many reasons, oily skin, acne prone, can never find the right shade at drug stores and didnt see the value in investing in more professional makeup, plus i didnt like the suffocating and cakey feeling of foundation. but since starting school is mandatory to wear makeup and i was modeling for a boutique downtown where i live and wanted to have perfect looking skin since i have light acne and redness. i absolutely love this foundation and actually need to buy more. it never feels gross and thick and covers everything perfectly with such a light application and keeps my skin looking fresh and not shiny. i very excessive sebum production so i usually pair this with a hd finishing powder and just re-apply the powder about three times a day as i tend to get a little shiny. even though my shine comes through the makeup never gets cakey making it very easy to just apply some powder over top without getting a nasty build up of makeup. this is the only foundation i have ever bought and actually continued to use and love. oh not to mention it never makes me breakout and is amazing since i have such sensitive skin.

This foundation is above and beyond my all time favorite! I've been using it personally and professionally, for several years. I am a foundation junkie, I try everything on the market, and nothing compares to Mat Velvet! I have oily skin, and this does an amazing job of holding up throughout the day, looks flawless, has a great shade range, and photographs beautifully. I hope this foundation is around for a long time to come, it's truly amazing. Read Less

I have combination oily skin and after talking to a Sephora consultant, she recommended this foundation. I bough it and the first time I put it on I loved it because of the great coverage. After a few days, this foundation made me break out like crazy. If you have combination oily or oily skin, I'd be careful to try this. Read Less
