Kat Von D Lock It vs. MUFE Mat Velvet

Hello! I am looking for a good fuller-coverage foundation. My skin is quite pale and slightly cool (I tend to prefer neutral or slightly warm-toned foundations as they help cover redness). It is difficult to find a good color match. My skin is also very sensitive, acne-prone, and oily, but with some random, occasional dry patches.

I have been looking at Kat Von D Lock It Foundation and Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet +. What is your experience with these foundations and what would you recommend?


Thanks! Smiley Happy


For reference:

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage in Fair: nice formulation, but a bit too dark

Clinique Acne Solutions in Fresh Alabaster: less coverage than what I was looking for; slightly too dark and pink/orange

Ulta Mineral Foundation in Warm 1: color is okay, but causes breakouts

Revlon Colorstay for Combo/Oily Skin in Ivory: terrible color (too dark and too orange); extremely irritating on my skin; all-around awful foundation

L'Oreal True Match in W1 Porcelain: color is okay upon application, but oxidizes too dark; doesn't last long

Hey, I have pale skin as well!!Smiley Happy

I know you said you used Clinique, and didn't like it so much. But I would recommend using Clinique Even Better foundation in 05, Neautral. (That's the color I got, it is a slightly darker color than my skin, but I think it covers darker spots and redness quite well). I agree that it is not the best coverage out there, but I love this foundation. I would then recommend using bareMinerals original foundation on top of that. And, then the bareMinerals mineral veil. I just got these products and am in love with how they look and feel on my face!! Smiley Very Happy As for acne prone, I recommend using X Out face wash. It's amazing. You use it day and night. Just one simple step to clear skin. Proactive didn't work well for me, too hard to keep up with. Also, X out is cheaper. Anyways, I just bought the Try. Belive. Love. Kit from bareM, in Fairly Light and it;s a good price for the amount of product you get. I hope this helps.

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I'll definitely take a look at those. The Even Better foundation appears to have a lot more shades then the Acne Solutions foundation does. Maybe that one has a better match for me. I've thought about trying Bare Minerals, but I was little hesitant since other (cheaper and probably lower-quality) mineral makeup brands have caused me to break out. But since it worked for you, maybe it'll work for me too. Thanks! Smiley Happy

Yea, I think that is the reason I went for the Even Better instead of the acne solutions.. bareMinerals is seriously my favorite thing ever!! I am going to purchase the full sizes soon. Smiley Happy And you're welcome! Good luck!Smiley Happy
