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

Mat Velvet is so luxurious and silky feeling. I absolutely love it. I have a slightly oily T-zone and otherwise normal skin, and Mat Velvet keeps my skin looking even texture-wise. My skin looks matted as long as I wear it, and it never cakes or shows the oily part of my skin. This stuff is amazing. And just another plus for me- it's ACTUALLY the right color! I have extremely pale skin, and this is the first makeup I have ever found that has a shade pale enough to match. I never tan- I only burn and then return to the same color, so I can use this same foundation year-round. I love this foundation, it's wonderful, and I highly recommend it. Read Less
