it was my first time trying out the sample of MUFE Mat Velvet + foundation #35 that I got from Sephora from back in April (see post HERE)... & I must say, I love it! I want it! I need it! must have it ASAP!

~ I love how smooth & easy it applied on my skin
~ for a thin layer, it provides full coverage
~ I didn't even need to apply concealer after (used concealer only for under eye on this look)
~ made my face look super flawless without looking too made up
~ felt very matte, perfect for girls who have oily skin like moi!
~ matte finish is perfect for the summer
~ not sticky
~ feels very light
~ no foul smell

~ the only thing I didn't like about this foundation is that it's not photo ready like the MUFE HD foundation, but can't really complain about that as this foundation was not specifically made for that picture-ready face, instead, for a mattified non-greasy finish
~ although it doesn't look that good in pictures, my face looks amazingly flawless in person... I promise!

as mentioned, this is the first time I tried this foundation, so I would probably need to use it some more to give a fair review.... however, sadly I cannot do that as my sample is probably good for only one more application... so if I decided to purchase this, I would definitely do a review after several uses....
