If you are tired of searching for a foundation that won't clog your pores or melt on your face, try  MAKE UP FOR EVER Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation .  I would highly recommend this matte foundation for dark skin women with combination or oily skin.  I applied this foundation at 8 in the morning and stayed matte until around 2 in the afternoon.  I only needed to blot my nose because the foundation DID NOT MOVE on my cheeks, forehead and chin.  When I use the right primer and setting products, it lasts even longer.  The foundation goes on matte but it's not drying.  It also doesn't transfer when I wear my glasses.

I use my  Sigma 3DHD Kabuki Brush - Black to blend and buff it across my skin.  The finish doesn't look patchy.  This is a medium to full coverage foundation that won't sink into or emphasize your pores. 

I am absolutely raving about the wide range of colors.  I only wish that the foundation came in a pump because I feel like some of it goes wasted because I can't get it all out of the bottle.

This foundation was a recommended to me by a sephora worker and i really like that they had a shade that had pinkish and golden undertone which i am its hard to find that in other foundation i have oily skin and i wore this out all day in the summer in texas which is hooot and i didnt even feel like i had foundation on the only thing i didnt like is that it kind of sinked into the lines in the dent under my lip above my chin and side of my nose and its kinda pricey for such a small bottle

LOVE LIVE LOVE this foundation. I finally found a shade light enough for my skin tone. Matched my skin perfectly which is really hard for me to find the foundation itself has a medium to full coverage and dries really smooth and matte. It’s not tack or Dewey at all but still feels like there’s nothing on your skin. I don’t even use a setting powder when I use this foundation because it stays all day and it doesn’t need the added layer. Bronzer and contour blended perfectly over it.

This is my holy grail foundation. I use it everyday. It has very nice coverage and is pretty buildable. It does not break me out and has a great matte finish. I like it because it is full coverage but doesn't feel too heavy. I have tried many different foundations and this is the one I keep going back to. The color is a perfect match for my skin as well. I only wish it wasn't so expensive because the bottle isn't all that big, but it does last me a good 3 months.

Fell in love with this at very first use! Trust me when I say it's totally worth it and a little really does go a looong way! Flawless! Great formula! Only thing I wish is that I would of got a shade or 2 darker than what I bought, I noticed its too light on me now. Works great with a good foundation brush or beauty blender... Never had to use my fingers so not sure on that but this stuff really is great and yes I absolutely would buy again (even tho it's not cheap!) this is the first makeup forever foundation I've ever used and I would love to try their others, I'm sure they are great!

this is really nice light coverage. i like to wear this over mac strobe cream during the summer usually with other cream products because it helps blend. this foundation is pretty expensive for what you get which is why i put 4 stars but it is still nice. i use a paddle brush to apply it and then go over everything (after cream products) with a sponge to blend it all in.

This is my favorite foundation I have ever used! I've tried other similar products, but I keep coming back to this foundation! I have a big problem finding foundation light enough for my skin tone, and this foundation has ranges that always match me! It gives medium-full coverage and is extremely buildable. The finish is very matte but it never looks washed out or cakey. I love this foundation!

Truly suitable for any skin type depending on skin prep. This is a full-bodied full-coverage Foundation. If you’re looking for a dollface perfect complexion, look no further. Best applied with a beauty blender, this is the high glam high coverage foundation of dreams. A savior for oily users but not drying for dry users (properly prepped). This is always a go-to

This is my go-to holy grail foundation. It goes on smooth and does just like it says, gives you a velvet matte finish that is so beautiful. I get so many compliments on this foundations. The only time this is not my go to is when I have dry patches as the mattifying qualities of this foundation seem to make it slightly more noticeable.

i have really fair skin so i'm always partial to a MFU product because they  have shades that match my tone. i personally think this foundation is a bit too heavy for full face usage but i use it as a spot concealer over a different MFU foundation for full face. just dab on with a beauty blender and any problem spots are fixed.

Is it good for really oily skin? Does it last a long day? The coverage it gives you? Full coverage? Medium? Light?
