Matte hydrating Foundation


Debating between PAT McGRATH LABS Sublime Perfection Foundation Medium 16 or theShiseido Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation. Anyone got any other recommendations or better personal experiences with a matte foundation that isn't dry?

Re: Matte hydrating Foundation

@cutiecheeks415, a matte foundation is going to be a little flat or dry, if you will, because of the finish.  If anything, you can also mix in a highlighter, primer or moisturizer into the foundation to kick up your glow or make it more luminous.  I really like the Pat one and have heard good things about Shiseido, so IMO both are winners.


Stuff I like to mix in with foundations:

Elf Halo Glow (IMO a dupe of Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter , but to each their own)

Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Multipurpose Illuminator 

Dior Forever Glow Star Filter Multi-Use Complexion Enhancing Booster 

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight Transcend 


ETA: Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation maybe more akin to what you're looking for
