Here’s my update on Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation.

What I love about this foundation is the shade. It works for me. I also like the coverage. It covers almost everything. Those acne scars are annoying! Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation does a great job at covering up post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. But there is something that is bothering me about this foundation. It is very drying. This is coming from someone that has oily skin. I know the finish is matte, but I didn’t expect it to dry out my skin. I was hoping for it to keep my oily skin at bay. It didn’t. Not only did it dry my skin out, it settled into fine lines and wrinkles. I stopped using it on the skin around my eye area for that reason. I did like this foundation at first because it didn’t dry out my skin yet. The more I use it, my skin increased in dryness. Perhaps this foundation works better during the summer months instead. I’m very wary about using it right now because it doesn’t make my skin look smooth and soft. As for breakouts, I’m not sure if it causes acne or not, but I did notice 1-2 whiteheads out of nowhere. I don’t want to say that it’s this foundation yet, but I want to report what I have experienced. As of now, I went back to using Dr Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream. I’ll try Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation again when my skin is ready. I’m not feeling it right now. The dryness is just too much for my skin. Dang it, I really wanted it to work.

Here’s my first impression of Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation. I’ve used it twice already. But first, let’s get to know more about this foundation. 🙂

The first time I used Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation, I was very impressed. It felt soft and smooth on my skin. The coloring of the foundation worked for me. It blends into my skin very well. I liked it. This is what it looks like.

Here, I dispensed too much foundation out of the tube for one application. This foundation is very concentrated. It comes in a 1.01 fl oz tube, but you don’t need a lot for a full face coverage. It acts as a foundation and a concealer in one. It does cover blemishes, acne scars, and other imperfections. I didn’t have to use too much concealer for my dark under eye circles or blemishes. It’s that awesome.

When I used it the second time (today), I felt the same way about this foundation. It works for me, and I really like it. I like it a lot more than my other foundations — Dr Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream, Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation, and elf Flawless Finish Foundation. After trying Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation, I won’t repurchase Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation and elf Flawless Finish Foundation again. I found something better, and this is it! I will always like Dr Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream. I use it as a base before I apply my foundation, since I can’t find a SPF that works for my skin. I have Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, but it’s not working for me. It dries my skin out. I need some form of SPF in my morning routine. Dr Jart+ Silver Label does it for the time being. It’s better than using nothing.
