MUA’s Matte Perfect Foundation is actually rather good. It is just £2 from Superdrug. I went for the colour ‘Natural’ and the shade was a fairly good match.
Basic packaging, however not that much different to its high street counterparts such as Rimmel and Bourjois. It has a screw cap, and I like the fact that you have to squeeze the tube to disperse the product and not for it to just run out and create a mess.
The actual foundation is quite thick, or so it appears, however once you have blended this out, it does not appear heavy on the skin. It is not the easiest to blend, if you take a little time, it will blend in to leave a seamless finish. I used my trusty Real Techniques Buffing Brush for this, which seemed to work fairly well. It provides even, fairly natural coverage and feels hydrating.
So it’s now 8 hours later, the foundation hasn’t lasted. However I did only apply a thin layer, but I’m sure you could build this up. However it still isn’t cakey and not sitting in the fine lines. It has literally just faded. My skin is still matte and this has certainly prevented my T-Zone from becoming oily.
Considering this is just £2, this has actually out-performed Benefit’s Big Easy. If I had to choose between the 2, I would opt for this every time. For one of the cheapest foundations on the market, it’s not that bad at all.
