Monday 5 August 2013


Happy Monday! I hope your Monday was nothing short of fabulous! Here we are in August already the 5th day -- where has the summer been going? I have been really busy with activities and events here this summer but I can not wait to pick up blogging full force again come September.
I have for you all today a review on the MAKE UP FOREVER MAT VELVET + Foundation ; A couple weeks ago I was sent the HD Complexion Starter Kit and advised the coverage wasn't really what I was expecting. MAKE UP FOREVER (Aida) really thought for a more full coverage foundation sending me the Mat Velvet + would be best, of course I agreed as I have heard great hype of this foundation from guru's such as Nicole Guerriero and Casey Holmes on Youtube. Thank you again Aida I hope to continue to review for MAKE UP FOREVER Canada it has been a privilege.

 Foundation Buzz

The information below can be seen first hand as well as the various color shades via MAKE UP FOREVER section on the Sephora website , by clicking here or visiting a Sephora near you.

What it is:
A shine controlling, oil-free, water-resistant, complete coverage liquid foundation.

What it is formulated to:
Hides imperfections, evens out skintone, and mattifies with a non-oily, perfectly powdered finish. The result is flawless and lasts for hours.

What else you need to know:
Although this foundation provides full coverage, the end result is completely adjustable to fit your needs—a little goes a long way.

Research results:
-Study panel composed of 22 adults (using a 48 hour patch test) showed this product to be non-irritating and non-comedogenic.

There are 16 shades to choose from, which I love! There is also a guarantee that not only will you find a shade that will match your skin tone but your undertone as well. I really loved this product. I have combo skin, not oily not dry a mixture of both and I am sensitive as well. I really appreciated how it applied, it's light weight,blends flawlessly and dries 100% matte. 
To apply I prepped my skin with a Lioele skin base "Secret Pore Rich Balm" I than took my Sedona Lace "928" synthetic flat top brush with a squeeze of the MAKE UP FOREVER Mat Velvet + foundation in #40 Natural Beige and buffed it into my skin.

The foundation is very long wearing , I applied around 8:45am and it lasted me until about 9:30pm with only 2 touch ups (around my nose) As you can see from the images below the left image is without the foundation applied, and the right is with only one layer of the MAKE UP FOREVER Mat Velvet +
Overall I really have been enjoying this foundation - It's the perfect coverage and it's great for all skin types. The retail value for a bottle of this foundation is $42.00 for a 1.01oz bottle. I really have no qualms about this product as it did everything it said it would.
Thank you again MAKE UP FOREVER CANADA! 
Have any of you lovelies tried the MUFE MAT VELVET + Foundation?
