Classic Makeup Concealing Matte Foundation & HD Setting Powder – Review, Swatches & Demo

Hey darlings,

After getting quite a number of requests to review the Classic Makeup Concealing Matte Foundation & HD Setting Powder, I finally got them last week 🙂 . I’ve heard quite a lot about the classic makeup brand and a lot of women seem to use their products too, probably because they are very affordable. Honestly, I had my reservations about the brand for no particular reason but as a beauty blogger, I owe it to you, my lovely Glam Fam, to review as many products as possible and give you my honest opinion about them! So, today’s review post is going to be different from the usual as you can watch me do a demo using the products, see what they look like and also find out my overall experience…cool, eh? 😀

To watch, please click the video below!

Well, if you prefer to read instead, you know I’ve got you! 😉

Classic Makeup Concealing Matte Foundation Review

According to Classic Makeup, ”the concealing foundation is a two in one magic product to even out and reveal the radiance of your complexion. Meet your secret weapon for making dark spots look like they’ve vanished! Classic Makeup USA Concealing Matte Foundation evens out skin tone when applied as an all-over foundation, and also works as a full coverage concealer, just dab onto trouble spots for a quick fix.”

Formula : It has a yellowish powdery formula.

How It Looks

How I Use : I prefer to apply with a powder brush instead of the puff.

The Scratch Panel…Confirmed Ok!

Pros :

  • The Classic Makeup HD Setting Powder locks in foundation.
  • Finely milled.
  • Lightweight.

Cons :

  • It looked darker when applied with a puff as compared to the brush.
  • Feels too powdery.


Overall, I quite like the Classic Makeup Concealing Matte Foundation and HD Setting Powder. The Classic Makeup Concealing Matte Foundation covered my acne scars in one application and I’m really happy about that. The Classic Makeup HD Setting Powder set the foundation really well too. I’m quite pleased with the results from the two products. However, the foundation isn’t oil free, so that means more touch ups while wearing it. I’ll probably just stick to wearing them on days when I don’t have any major outing. The powder is also too powdery , so I had to use a lot of product to set the foundation. I bought them for 1,500 each. So, that’s it, guys! I hope you found this post helpful. If you would like me to do more review/demo posts like this, please let me know in the comments box. Have you used the Classic Makeup Concealing Matte Foundation and HD Setting Powder? Please share your thoughts!


Hugs and Kisses,
