Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation

6 Comments 25 February 2013

Call me backward, but I had no idea that Dolce & Gabbana did make up for brown skins!

The new Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation leaves you with a velvety matte look that has great staying power. I wore it all day and only needed one mini touch up.

The Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation range comes in 15 shades, starting at Classique for the English Rose. I think their colours most suitable for brown skins are as follows:

Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation 148 Amber
Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation 150 Almond
Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation 160 Soft Tan
Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation 170 Golden Honey
Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation 180 Soft Sable

They say Perfect Matte Concealer 6 Soft Sand will best compliment these colours but I didn’t try it so you’ll have to go to the counter and see if it’s the right shade for you.

I tried the darkest shade, Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation 180 Soft Sable and it matched my skin tone perfectly. I tested on the jaw line like you’re supposed to and it simply melted into my skin. It was a 100% colour match.

Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation gives medium to full coverage and even without concealer, does a great job at covering imperfections.

Make up maestro Pat McGrath is Creative Advisor at Dolce & Gabbana make up and she says: “The intelligent foundation formula achieves impeccable coverage for a classically perfect beauty look that lasts. Though the coverage is medium to high, the overall look is a more modern natural, soft matte that seamlessly adapts to and works with the skin.”

The packaging is beautiful (of course) and a little goes a long way so the bottle should last a while. When it comes to foundation, brands are starting to (finally) realise that providing for a large and diverse audience makes good commercial and ethical sense.

If you’re after a good quality medium to high coverage foundation, I recommend Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation.
