I LOVE this foundation!

I have read lots of reviews about MUFE but here in the UK it is quite difficult to get hold of. Although on a recent trip to the US I went to Sephora and had a full MUFE makeover...the results AMAZING!

So I was hooked, although as much as I love MUFE HD Foundation due to the difficulty of buying this product I have dabbled in others from Chanel, Estee Lauder, Revlon, Maybelline, No7, Giorgio Armani...but they really dont compare at all!

I am combo skin and can be a little on the oily side, though this is a dream to apply, so easy to build for more of a coverage, yet feels so light at the same time...I find it lasts all day through summer and winter (I usually wear it alone with no powder top ups needed) it doesn’t dry up, it doesn’t grease up…it just adds a general healthy glow to your skin, it doesnt break me out at all or cause any reactions, the colours are just the best you can get and with that all being said I can safely say, MUFE HD Foundation is my HOLY GRAIL.


Also to add it looks AMAZING IN PHOTOS! And seriously, who wants a foundation that doesnt look amazing in photos!

I was really excited to finally try this foundation, after seeing so many other people use it. But I was disappointed.

I wasn't really able to find the right color. The pinkish shade was a little too pink, and the yellowish shade was a little too yellow. I couldn't find anything in between.

Tints aside, the makeup went on very smoothly. I was EXTREMELY impressed by the coverage, i normally have to apply two different concealers in addition to a foundation to completely hide my blemishes/ discoloration. But with this, one coat was enough to smooth out the appearance of my skin.

Unfortunately, the makeup does not last very long, even with primers and setting powders. About an hour after applying it, I lightly blotted my face with a blotting tissue, and was dismayed to see makeup transferring onto the tissue. This has never happened with any other foundation I've used. An hour or so after THAT, I had to make a phone call, and was even more dismayed to see a giant splotch of makeup on the screen of my phone where my face had been touching it. Pretty disgusting.
Near the end of the day, the makeup started to look a bit cakey and unhealthy.

I was also very disappointed that this foundation wasn't non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging). My skin had been improving over the last few weeks, so I was hopeful that it would be able to withstand this foundation. But it wrecked my face after one use.

I really wanted to love this foundation, and I was impressed with the coverage. But because it is so terrible for my skin, I will have to return it and try something else.

Initially the SA at Sephora gave me a color that was...not right. I should have just grabbed the lightest one to begin with, that's the one that matched. Color 110.

I use and love the Smashbox FX foundation and was told by the SA that the MUFE is comparable and that many people prefer it. I used a damp Beautyblender and achieved light coverage; when I went back in to stipple a little extra on areas that needed more coverage, it got a little dodgy. I did not use a foundation brush, perhaps that would have offered some good coverage and then smoothed with the sponge.

On the day I tried this I was having a rare almost-perfect skin day, and the foundation was pretty decent looking today. Not so great that I would replace what I use! So in this case I could probably wear the MUFE and look good about two days a month. The color is very believable, it feels nice on my skin, and applied directly (no primer underneat) it didn't cause any irritation or blemishes. I really like this foundation overall.

*Note: so far this is the ONLY foundation that will not wash out of my Beautyblender despite repeated attempts.

Great colour but wish it lasted longer.

I do like this foundation it is a perfect colour for my skintone and i love that it feels light on my skin, looks very natural, blends in wonderfully and can be used as a concealer ( well thats what a salesperson told me at sephora). It also gives a good medium coverage not the best but good.

My problems are that it does not last as long as i hoped approx 4-6 hrs, it could be because its summer and i tend to 'glow' a lot ( i.e. i basically become sweaty betty) and it slides off but even when i use primer and set it with MUFE hd powder it still does not stay.

Another major problem is it is not available in the UK except from very pricey stores that sell the product a good £4 more than in the US. luckily i bought mine from the US but if it runs out i would have to plan another trip there to get my supply.

I love this foundation! Out of all the high end and drugstore foundations in every form (liquid, powder, creme, bb cream, etc), this is the BEST product I've used. It does not streak or gets oily, even on my combination skin. If you're Asian, you know how difficult it is to find a shade that matches your skin perfectly. For me, #125 Sand is the perrrfect shade.

Sure, it's a bit pricier than regular foundation but think about how much money you are saving on faulty products!

****UPDATE****My complaint about this is that it doesn't last long at all..a couple of hours after I apply the foundation (with a primer, powder, and setting spray) it is already time to blot and is sliding around my skin...anytime i touch my face or touch something else you can tell that it smeared the color and the foundation...also, if you cry or get water on your face you're screwed. Very Disappointing because i love this..had to knock off a lippie. still really good coverage though. Also, i do not even have oily skin. My Skin is fairly dryy/normal.

This is my holy grail of foundations! I've never had a foundation with such a lightweight texture and such amazing coverage. I have normal semi-dry skin, and I totally recommend this foundation to anybody who has a similar skin type because it's flawless, natural, and lasts all day. I work at Sephora so thankfully I get a discount on this foundation - but $40 is super expensive for a foundation. But it's truly worth every cent! Even my boyfriend compliments me when I wear this. He can barely tell I have make up on, and he loves it, even though my skin looks flawless. I pair this with one of their waterproof concealers and either the HD micro-powder finish which is ALSO extremely outstanding. 5 stars!

THIS RIGHT HERE.. IS THE GREATEST FOUNDATION EVER MADE. It is so good although it's kinda pricey.. If you're an NC35 get 153 because it'll match you so great. I got 127 before but I found it a little light on me. At first they didn't want to give me the 153 cause it's far from my face skintone, but it looked good! It matched my body skintone so everything is even. It doesn't feel heavy at all, when applied used a flat top brush so it gives a nice flawless natural look! It dries out on the matte side, well for me. I have oily skin, I suggest always putting on moisturizer before applying this. I love it even though it's only been two days!

I love this foundation. I'm a PPP and I find the lightest yellow shade (117) fits me great. If I apply this with ecotools foundation brush, I achieve a matte flawless much that my skin looks slightly fake!! I weird to negatively comment about having a flawless face, but being in the 30's, I need a little bit of sheen to mask fine lines. So now, I apply it with my fingertips after sunscreen. I sometimes apply the powder foundation for touch ups throughout the day if needed and I love how my skin looks. This makeup hides pores very well for me and really settles/melts into my skin:) The pump is nice, but it bothers me knowing that there is a little bit more product at the bottom that I can't get to...

Its kinda hard for me to review this as there is no color match for me. I've tried (several times) #115, #118, #120, and #125. None are right and then they just get darker from there so thats it. #115 was the right tone but too light. In in mac I'm NW20.

ANYWAY, I really like this foundation b/c it looks so flawless and leaves a satin/natural finish like real skin should look. Its medium coverage to me. I don't think this would be good for oily skin and you have to be careful not to apply to much or else you will look waxy. So I give it a 4 but I wish they would expand the light end of their color range, specifically the cool tones.

I'm an NC30 and I bought #123 which was the WRONG color match! I do like how this looks freshly applied but by the end of the day I'm extremely oily even with primer on! The reason I gave it 2 lippies was because it does look amazing in photos and I like that it comes with a pump.
