black Up is revamping its iconic Fluid Foundation which becomes the Matifying Fluid Foundation. Historical reference of the brand, it keeps all its benefits: a fluid texture that stretches easily, a medium coverage that adapts to skin with blemishes and a very natural finish! Moreover, this new formula ensures an immediate matte effect. Enriched with sebum-regulating and astringent active ingredients it rebalances combination to oily skins, smoothes and provides more comfort to the skin. Long lasting, the make-up remains bright and homogeneous all day long.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Blackinsussex Great coverage
I purchased this in no.16, which was the wrong colour for me. It was about 2 shades too dark with a red undertone. I have reordered it in no.13.
What I could tell from applying it is that it blended very well when I applied with both brush and beauty blender. It had an immediate matifying appearance which is great for us oily or combination skinned women. The coverage was medium to full and could be built upon if full coverage is required.
What I like about this range of products, is that there is a vast array of colours,18, from the lightest Asian and mixed race colours to the deepest ebony of my Women of Colour.
The other thing is the mistake a lot of companies make is their foundations have red or pink under tones. Black Up have covered this with yellow/olive, neutral and red/ orange undertones.
The colours are rich and pigmented, no ashiness here. You also get plenty of product in a pump dispensed bottle. Couldn't ask for any more.
My only negative, is the name of the range. But, I suppose being a French company, they don't associate Black Up with negative the connotations we have in the UK. (I'm thinking of the minstrels in the 70s).
This is a great range and I'm looking forward to trying some of their other products. Well done Debenhams for supplying it online for those of us who don't live in the big cities.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LIZZIE Fantastic Product- LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation.
Perfect coverage, Light feeling,long lasting, flawless & a little goes a long way & I use a fair amount everyday. (I bought my first bottle in July 2014 and still using it now - Feb 2015)
I never write reviews, but this foundation is great. I have tried A LOT of foundations MAC,Bobbi brown, Armani, Dior, Mary K,YSL,Lancome, plus other brands. YOU NAME IT I'VE PROBABLY TRIED IT. But nothing beats this foundation & Black Up make up in general. I love it!
I would recommend, getting matched up by an make up artist before purchasing. Other than that, it is a great product, that should get more recognition, as I only heard about the product from word of mouth. Not to mention the brand was created by a Congolese man :D.. Shame it is not sold elsewhere other than Debenhams.
I would definitely recommend this product. My friends have tried other black products & they love them. I'm yet to try more products from them - I hear the serum is to die for!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sholay A good product
Black up mattifying foundation was used on me by my makeup artist, I liked the flawless finish,,the full coverage so I decided to try it for myself.
She suggested I try colour 12 and 13 to get the sort of effect that suits my skin type and tone
On the first try I found that it didn't last through out the day as it had dried before I could set it with my loose powder. The second time I used it, I then applied some more foundation at the end of my routine and set it immidiatly with loose powder to get my desired effect.
On the whole I have no regrets ...I intend to get the setting spray and the contouring kit and other items
I will recommend blackup cosmestics to,anyone who want flawless look and great coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kiki Best foundation ever!
Love love love this foundation!! It's perfect for my skin. Excellent matte finish, makes my face look flawless. Feel like throwing away my other high end foundations. Will definitely purchase this again.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Marilyn Absolutely perfect if you want the natural look whilst still consealing uneven tones.
I was introduced to this product range by word of mouth about 3 years ago and I haven't looked back since. I was literally panicking when I logged on to replenish my foundation and found that my shade was out of stock... it wasn't, I just needed to order the new ranged, different coding system now in place. This new one is just as pleasing. I tend to have issues with sensitivity, especially in the summer, this product has proved brilliant. It also allows your skin to breath and covers up all my uneven tones without the need to pile on loads.
