Comments about Models Own Matte Runway Foundation:

It seemed like a very good foundation at first. However, I have very oily skin and it has dried me out completely. I would not buy again.

    Comments about Models Own Matte Runway Foundation:

    HATE THIS FOUNDATION. it breaks apart on your face, very heavy and very hard to blend with a damp beauty blender. the only good thing is that it has good coverage. i still hate this foundation and i wasted my money.

    The Search is over

    By Jody

    from Illinois

    Comments about Models Own Matte Runway Foundation:

    I have searched for the "right" foundation for YEARS! I used to use Max Factors Pan Stick foundation in my 20's before it went out of business and I had struggled to find that kind of coverage. I've tried everything from drug store brands to high end foundations. I stopped into ULTA on my lunch hour (which I do way too often) and happened upon the Models Own section. I bought the Bisque shade which I'm pleasantly surprised that I don't have to mix shades for the right color. I love the full coverage and it makes my skin look so fresh and smooth. I use the color correcting primer underneath (it's the lavender colored one). I finish it with a matte powder and I still look like I just applied my make up when it's time to take it off at night. The only problem I have and this is likely me and not the product is that it seems to slide off of my nose. If I could figure out how to correct that problem I would be golden.

      I was hesitant at first because it's so inexpensive, however I was wrong. It blends so nicely and it's one of the few foundations that actually match my skin tone perfectly.

        I got the next shade from the lightest, but I should've gotten the lightest shade. If you don't have warm-toned skin or at least neutral-toned this is NOT the foundation you want. It's really warm-toned! I'm still testing it out, but so far I like how it looks on the skin!

          Comments about Models Own Matte Runway Foundation:

          Soooo, tried this out and liked how it looked initially. It has a soft, matte finish. Doesn't look too dry, actually photographs well. But omg, after about the 5-6 hour mark, it just...yuck. It does this weird texture thing, like it's caking up/breaking down, but doesn't look oily at all because I always set my foundation since I'm oily. And it literally just comes off in places. I have NEVER had that problem with any foundation. I've had transfer before, but this literally just goes away. I had no foundation left on my chin by the end of the day, and there were random patches around the rest of my face where it was just gone. I was embarrassed that I had been around people looking like this. I've worn it twice, changing out my primer after the first time because I thought maybe they just didn't get along. But nope, it was even worse the second time. I just threw out the box so I can't even return it. I don't even trust it to mix in with anything else. So maybe on a rare day when I'm just going to be wearing make-up for a few hours, this might be ok? But other than that, it's a no go for me.

              I have fair skin and usually go for the lighter shades, however I ordered the first shade and it was wayyyyyy to light. If you are very fair then I'd say go for it. It is a nice foundation and if you are more porcelain then the color should be good.

                Comments about Models Own Matte Runway Foundation:

                I was a little skeptical at first because I normally use Lorac, but this particular day I was shopping on a budget so I had to buy a less expensive "Budget Brand" to get me through the next couple weeks. I was expecting the usual greasy, short-lived foundation, but I was pleasantly surprised! I still use my Lorac pressed powder ontip, but I will say that this foundation goes on super smooth and has a beautiful finish. It definitely lasts all day and I don't get raccoon eyes from my eyeliner dripping down oily skin. I have super sensitive and oily acne prone skin and I haven't had any breakouts since I've used this. I might actually switch for good if this continues to work this welll for me. It's been 2 weeks and so far so good! I definitely recommend this product.

                    Hey Ike,

                    Thanks for reaching out at Models Own!

                    Both our runway foundation and the Maybelline Fit Me Matte foundation are similar in coverage, however, with ours, the formula is a weightless, matte liquid foundation, therefore feels super comfortable and light weight all day.

                    Hope this helps!

                    Hi Clarah,

                    Thanks for reaching out at Models Own!

                    Our Matte Runway Foundation has a medium to full coverage and is buildable on any skin tone. We would recommend you trying a shade on the back of your hand to be sure of the right shade for you in one of the Ulta stores. Alternatively, you can see the swatch shades online and match to your skin tone.

                    Hope this helps!

                    Thanks for reaching out at Models Own! Yes, our Runway Matte foundation is great for oily skin as it is oil free. We advise to apply with a damp, blending sponge to get an even coverage.

                    Hi Mariah, Thanks for reaching out!

                    As this is a matte foundation we do not recommend this product for dry skin. However, if you still want to get that flawless matte finish, we would recommend buying the Models Own Illuminating Face Base Face Primer as well.

                    You can use this as a base to hydrate your skin before applying the Runway Matte Foundation or you can mix them together and apply as one layer to keep your skin hydrated and still have that matte finish.

                    Hope this helps!
