Update: Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation
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.
