Phew! What a loooong title!
This is going to be a review/tutorial of the MUFE Mat Velvet+ Foundation (S$65) & MUFE Super Matte Loose Powder (S$48??) which I bought at Sephora on Tuesday.
I have been using this combi since I bought it on Tues. And I got to say, I am loving both products. Everyone should own some MUFE foundation in their stash. Here, I am going to show you how I use it, and some pictures. But here, we have a bare naked face.
And here, we have the product. I am showing you a comparison of the Mat Velvet+ next to my MAC Select Cover up Concealer in NC20. You can see the similarities in texture. The MA said that Mat Velvet+ can be used a concealer, hence the comparison.
L is MUFE, and R is the MAC concealer which you can see, is a little thicker.
And if I smear the products, this is how they look like. On top is the MAC Studio Sculpt just for the sake of comparison. You can see how the Mat Velvet+ and Studio Sculpt is as 'opaque' as the concealer.
And here is how I apply the Mat Velvet+. Since I am anticipating rather thick consistency, I try to sheer out the foundation by spraying my 187 brush with Fix+.
Even coverage, I didn't use any concealer, nor primer for this review/tutorial. I also have not set my face yet. You can clearly see the redness and spots on my face has almost totally disappeared and even out. LOVES. And I don't need much concealer by this stage.
Then--- I think this is definitely my FAVE product of the moment. The powder, which comes with a puff. I have seen YT videos on the Illamasqua pink loose powder, and have been kicking myself for not ordering it earlier... since then I have been sort of hankering loose pink powder. I believe it is the key to having a radiant looking skin. And with the 'super matte' in the product name, hey, I am SOLD.
*BTW on my nails is OPI for Sephora Metro Chic.
I used the PRESS & ROLL method to apply this loose powder. It is amazing, both the technique and the product itself. I can see instant smoothing and mattifying effect -- as you can see in the pictures below. It finishes off the foundation perfectly, and make my pores disappear. And we like that!
Say hello to matte and smooth skin!
Would I repurchase? Yes to both!! But not in a long time, because I will take forever to use them! Relatively good value compared to their more expensive HD range (foundation $75, and HD powder $55)
All in all, I say... if you are checking out Sephora this weekend, you know where to go and check out MUFE, and you know where I will be. :)
Hope this review is remotely helpful, and leave a comment if you have any questions. Thanks for reading!
