As someone with complex combination skin that can never decide whether it leans more on the oily or dry side, I struggle to find long-lasting complexion products that stay put throughout the day. By the end of the day, I'm either itching to take my foundation off because it feels so heavy, or annoyed by how blotchy the oilier areas of my face appear. So, finding a dependable formula always feels like a major feat.

Queue the tears: Make Up For Ever recently discontinued one of my favorite go-to powder formulas, its Matte Velvet Powder Foundation. However, it was recently replaced with the new HD Skin Matte Velvet Powder Foundation, and the brand sent me a couple of shades to try out.

Although I tried to keep an impartial opinion, I couldn't help but compare it to its predecessor; the packaging was nearly identical, aside from the flesh-colored compact cover that's unique to each of the 32 shades offered, and it still included a double-sided sponge that controls the intensity of your coverage.

The new powder foundation comes in light, medium, tan, and deep shades with red, neutral, and yellow undertones. This vegan formula is also water-resistant, sweat-proof, and smudge-proof. What drew me to the foundation was its buildability. It can be used as a sheer finishing veil with a brush, layered to medium coverage with the logo side of the sponge, or a full coverage foundation with the velvet side of the sponge to cover redness, acne, discoloration, and shine.
