Matte Foundations Reviewed and Ranked


I've decided to put together a list of the most recent matte foundations I have been trying out and how they rank in comparison to each other. This includes the newly released Makeup Forever Matte Velvet Skin Foundation. I have ranked them based on longevity and finish.

Please note I have very oily skin and this is how these foundations wear on MY skin, but I will include which of the foundations I would suggest are best for normal (oily t-zone but dry elsewhere) and dry skin out of this bunch!

YSL All Hours Foundation - this foundation would be amazing for normal & dry skin!!

Longevity : 6 Finish: 9 Makeup Forever Matte Velvet Skin Foundation *New Release* Longevity: 8.5

Finish: 8.5

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Foundation - this foundation would also be amazing for normal skin and could work for some slightly dry skin types!!

Longevity : 7 Finish: 8.5

Covergirl True Blend Matte Made Foundation Longevity: 8

Finish:7.5

CoverFX Power Play Foundation Longevity: 8.5 Finish: 8.5

Overall Ranking from Best to Worst for Oily Skin types :

1) Makeup Forever & CoverFX tied for first. Total = 17 points 2) Lancome and Covergirl tied for second. Total = 15.5 points

3) YSL = 15 points
