New Favourite: MakeupForever DUOMAT Powder Foundation

Is it possible? Sarah Chaudhry has moved on to a NEW powder foundation??? Its surprising news to many who know me well because Ive been sticking to the same powder foundation for YEARS now! Well not literally the same piece! The same product and brand!
Ive been a massive fan of the Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Powder foundation since I was first introduced to it by Elizabeth Arden Singapore, in 2010! 
Dont get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with the product, it still works very well for me, still is one of my must haves but when I was at MakeupForever last month, I felt like I wanted to try something new….just for the fun of it! Its good to have options! :)

So I decided to try out the much raved about MakeupForever DUOMAT Powder Foundation.

“Created by Dany SANZ, the Duo Mat compact powder comes in a practical case which includes a mirror and a sponge, for a shine-free finish. It covers blemishes and perfectly evens out the complexion. Its formula provides a fresh feeling upon application, as well as exceptional hold and comfortable wear from morning to evening.”

And, exceptional INDEED! I use this DuoMat on days I have a function to attend, or days I will be out for super long hours. Simply because it provides an excellent FULL coverage AND keeps my skin alot less shiny. Ofcourse it DOES help to use the MakeupForever ALLMAT primer. (STILL my #1 primer BTW!)
So when I use the DuoMat out, I barely ever require any touch ups! Makeup stays put throughout and stays fresh even after several hours.

I wore it out to my friends birthday and not ONCE did I whip out my DuoMat for touch ups, despite seated outdoor in the humid night! I only had to touch up my lipstick after dinner. I LOVE…truly do…LOVE the MakeupForever DUOMAT Powder Foundation!

Its currently a huge hit with me! the only downside of it is the price, which is I believe S$65. But knowing my makeup stays fresh, and matte through out, makes it all the more worth very cent!
You can wear it over your foundation, for a FLAWLESS, FULL COVERAGE finish. Or wear it on its own, for a MEDIUM to FULL coverage finish! Eitherways, I dont find it cakey…my skin can breathe!

EVEN GREATER NEWS is that MakeupForever is launching a  new powder foundation thats supposedly the improved version of the DUOMAT. I cant tell you how excited I am!! If the DUOMAT is already so amazing, I cant imagine how the new powder foundation is going to be! You can read up more on that new Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation HERE. Its already available in the states I believe. But for now, I figured Id share with you my thoughts on the current existing DUOMAT which I will keep using(and buying!) till the new one hit Singapore’s market.

If you have oily skin, I would suggest checking this out! I also highly recommend pairing it with the MakeupForever ALLMAT primer. If there’s ONE thing anyone should get from MakeupForever, its their ALLMAT primer. No doubt abt it! 

The MakeupForever DUOMAT Powder Foundation is available at SEPHORA Singapore and also at MakeupForever’s PRO STORE at 36 Armenian Street
