I have problematic skin. This stuff definitey helps hide imperfections, for sure. It feels a little oily going on, but once it sets, it looks really natural. I have actually learned to love the consistency of it because you really don't have to use much of this product at all. My previous bottle lasted me about 6 months!
Ok the Cons - It doesn't have the best coverage, and isn't the best for layering. Basically I would use this all over my face in a thin layer, and then on my problem area(s) like my cheeks or chin, I would do MUFE Mat Velvet Foundation as the concealer, since I already had it. That actually works perfect for me, but if you don't have both, you might need to get something with more coverage for spotty areas. Otherwise, this foundation sets into your skin really nicely. I bartend, and I actually hear people call me a "natural beauty" and say they love how I dont wear much makeup. OH GOD if they only knew!! haha ;)
Also, I don't like the packaging much because I know theres more in the bottom of that little bottle, and it won't let me have it!!! I bet theres like, another month worth of makeup in that thing but the stupid little straw isn't grabbing it. Guess it's time to get more!
This is the best foundation I've used so far! Mac make my nose oily and Estee Lauder was too heavy. This is just perfect! It's light and blends so smoothly. Medium coverage and gives me a nice airbrushed look. Not heavy at all and my skin can breathe! Lasts all day! Love it!!!
So I was expecting HG status when I tried out this item. What a disappointment. The coloring, albeit having a wide range, did not match me. I got color matched three times, and each time, the color match was wrong! Ok - I know this is not a downfall for the product itself and that foundations from a wide color range all blend into my face, but the fact of the matter is, when I put it on my entire face....within hours it oxidized like CRAZY. it looked like my face went tanning on its own. :( What a disappointment...AND it felt a lot heavier than my current HG - nars sheer glow.
I like the color and texture of this product. It also is very light so it doesn't make fine lines look worse.. The only downfall is that if you have large pores as I do in the T-Zone area it will not cover it..
I was very excited to finally bite the bullet and lay out $42 for this foundation. I'd heard so much about it and have been lemming it for a couple years. What a waste of lemming! This stuff sat on my skin. Looked horrible. I had the right color as I'm easy to match. It didn't sink in or blend into my skin. You could see it sitting on my skin. I use moisturizer and a primer so that wasn't the problem. I have never returned makeup before, but for this price I did. The gal who waited on me turned her nose up at this product also. Said to try the MUFE face and body, which I already had decided I was going to trade this in for. 1000% better product which I'll review next and it's a few dollars less expensive.
If its smell is good I will give it 5 rating. But this is smell so bad especially when I use it under the sun exposure. But this is so good at night. And I like it when I got photographed, it does gave a very good cover but doesnt look heavy.
Love the blendability, the fact that it is very hygenic with the pump, and that it truly lives up to its reputation as the perfect foundation to use on film/photography. It feels light on, but you look airbrushed. The colour stays true, no oxidation, and the range of colours is magnificant- I believe there are around 25+ shades offered. If you are having difficulty being matched at MAC or Laura Mercier, definitely look into MUFE HD.
so everybody hyped it up for me alot when i bought it and tried it
it wasnt that good
i expected so much from it
ive heard it was amaziing but its just a regular foundation
the only good thing i found about this foundation is the lasting power
it last about the whole day which i need in a foundation because i dont have time to touchup during the day at school
but i got this foundation in shade 120 which the make up assistant color matched for me but its just slightly light for me i went back in the store and tried 123 on my hand and it was perfect but i lost my reciept so i dont know if i can exchange it.. i usually like foundations to be dewy and give me that glow but this one doesnt
it photographs great it makes me skin look smooth
this foundation is okay better than most of the foundations ive used
i just need a shade darker to fit my color
i hope they let me exchange or i hope i find the reciept so i can change it i dont want to pay another 40 $ for it .
or i might save it until the fall / winter that is coming up soon
i get super pale
* i ended up loving this foundation but unfortunately i had to return it because it broke me out really bad ..
i wish it didnt because i loved the lasting power
now i use smashbox hd foundationn
My skin is mostly normal, acne prone, and also prone to dryness although since my clarisonic I really no longer suffer from dry patches.
I am also PPP, about NW5-NW10 by MAC standards. Have a hard time finding a foundation light enough in many brands. I use this in 110 which is the lightest shade. There is a 107, but it looks as though it's darker and also VERY pink from some of the research I did online, it is also only available online and not in stores. MUFE is definitely a brand you want to try in store before you buy for shades, as some higher numbers are lighter shades and it's quite confusing. 110 is a pale shade but quite pink and a tad dark but workable.
Color selection is pretty good at 26 shades, should be a match for most.
I will also say there is a HUGE difference between applying this with your fingers/sponge and using a good foundation brush. It looks amazing applied with my sephora #55. Very airbrushed flawless look. This foundation is amazing in photos, but also lul in real life.
I find the finish to be semi matte. No need for a powder with my skin type.
As for the comments about not lasting, with my primer this lasts 8+ hrs, so no complaints there.
Only had this for a short time, but have not broken out as of yet, will update if it does break me out.
THIS IS A FACE LIFT IN A BOTTLE!! I have had this product for almost a year and for some odd reason never tried it. I was too busy using powder mineral foundations. For some reason the other day I decided to give it a try and WOW WOW WOW. I am 46, very dark hair and eyes, fairly good skin on the light side. The light GREEN side. I use EDM olive fair which I have to mix a green powder color corrector to get it right. All foundations are usually yellow on me. Anyway, this foundation was so awesome it looked like I had a FACE LIFT!! I have pretty good skin but this took years off me. Even the gentleman I occasionally have dinner with noticed a difference! My color is a #117 and it was a near perfect match. I had to brush on a little green color corrector but not much. I used E.L.F. color correcting powder over top and it was STUNNING. I will definitely use this AGAIN.
