Oh, Matte, yes! A thousand times YES!
I think I’m going to cry…
I’ve been wondering when you’d ask. You just made me the happiest girl in the world.
I actually thought you might pop the question that morning two weeks ago when we were getting ready for work. You were thinking about it that day weren’t you, Matte? We were standing in front of the mirror together, and I was holding on to you so tightly, and we looked into each other’s eyes, and I thought, “Yes, I could spend the rest of my life with you, Matte.”
Haha! It’s kind of crazy that we can spend all day together without driving each other nuts. Isn’t that crazy, Matte? I’ve never known a liquid matte foundation that left my skin looking so smooth and feeling so comfortable.
And the way you take control of oil on my forehead, nose and chin? — gosh, that’s so frickin’ hot. You always keep the shine away, baby, even on your own. I’ve never known another matte like that. Because of you, I don’t even need setting powder. That’s epic, Matte.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that you look so good in pics, haha! Oh, you know it’s true. You’re easy on the eyes. You look so natural on my skin. Not fake or mannequin-like at all. Honestly, because of problems in my past with that, I didn’t think I’d ever commit to a matte foundation…
I love how just the smallest amount patted on my cheeks, my nose and around my chin and mouth give me medium coverage. And how if I want more opacity, all I have to do is add and blend another layer.
Now, your family — it’s big, Matte — and you know that I love your family, but are we going to invite all 18 of your brothers and sisters? Because that’s going to be a big-@ss wedding. Bigger than we talked about.
Why don’t we just call your cousin, and have her meet us at City Hall? We could elope right then and there.
Oh, Matte! From here on out, it’s just us. Just you and me, baby.
BECCA Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation
The marketing mumbo-jumbo: A liquid matte foundation with medium coverage designed for oily and combination skin. Microfine powder particles in the formula help control shine while minimizing fine lines and creating an exceptionally smooth, matte soft-focus effect. Matte without oil, alcohols or fragrances, and it’s available in 19 shades.
The real deal: Bomb-diggity! I usually shy away from matte foundations, in large part because so many of them are very drying on combination skin like mine, but not this one. On me, it keeps oil under control, lasts all day long, and I can even skip setting powder. I LOVE the finish, too. It looks natural, both in person and in pics — not hard or harsh like many matte foundations.
And the best part of all? — that it absolutely refuses to settle into my pores or fine lines. I feel like it makes my skin look incredibly smooth, and for that it deserves an all caps WOOP-WOOP!
For medium coverage, I apply the tiniest amount with my fingers, and blend and smooth everything out with a kabuki brush. For fuller coverage, you can build it up. Just don’t forget to blend.
I think it was the first or second time I used it — but I was in a big hurry, so I didn’t blend, and I ended up with visible edges in the foundation on my skin.
Who might lurve it: If you have oily or combo skin and you’re looking for a liquid foundation with a natural matte finish and otherworldly oil control, you’re a prime candidate to fall in love with this. Just budget some time to blend (but it shouldn’t take long).
