Why I Love Make Up Forever Mat Velvet+ Foundation, Plus Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon GlaceMonday, June 06, 2016
I have been hollering about how great Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ Foundation is for years. Somehow, I haven't reviewed it on my blog, which is mind-blowing. I used to have a YouTube video on it, but it was so outdated and not the best representation of its glory. No matter how many foundations I try, Mat Velvet+ will always be my boo, my first love, bae, my knight in shining armor, definitely on holy grail status. If you prefer a matte face, it should also be your boo because it doesn't get any better than this!
I am an 85 in this foundation (usually only sold online, as the shade is rarely ever in stock in-stores at Sephora), and sometimes I use 80, if I need it right away (always at Sephora). The two shades are fairly similar, except I think 85 has more of a red undertone. For that reason, this is primarily my summer foundation for when I am darker, but I also use it in the winter months as the difference is minimal.
