Makeup Review: Black|Up Mattifying Liquid Foundation

If you have oily skin, or just love a perfectly matte finish on your face, no doubt you are a fan of matte foundation. I love a matte finish when I’m taking photos–my skin just seems to look better. So, I’m enjoying Black|Up Mattifying Liquid Foundation for those occasions.

My results:

Black|Up Mattifying Liquid Foundation provides full, long-lasting matte coverage. I love the immaculate finish it provides, even under my eyes. I have dark circles and ordinarily I have to use a concealer, but with an extra layer of this foundation, I have the same look as if I applied concealer.

This foundation wears extremely well, lasting be four hours without fading or drying out my skin. (I do prep well with moisturizer and primer). I found the color match to be spot on and I wouldn’t expect less since Black Up is made for black skin. All to often I get an ashy look to my foundation because I wear a lighter shade for black skin–usually a tan or medium or medium deep.  This foundation perfectly matched my golden undertones and skips the ashy look!

A little also goes a very long way. So if you prefer a light application, you will find that it blends out well and will match your skin beautifully. The shade range goes from very light tones for black skin to very deep. So, if you are a woman of color looking for an oil-free, matte finish foundation, check out Black|Up Mattifying Liquid Foundation.
