If I ever want my skin to look both dewy and perfect, this is it! I prefer using this in the cooler months when I can avoid sweating or oilyness because the slippage looks SO weird, especially around the nose where it never wants to stay on. Thats my only qualm. Love the look, love the bottle, the pump is great and the colour spectrum is one of the best I've ever seen. Its a bit pricey and it was discontinued from where I work, but I'd gladly spend the money on this again elsewhere. The only complaint I have it that the matching system is kind of wonky.
Unlike some of the other reviewers here, I am really pleased with this foundation. The coverage is almost complete...in fact more than I have experienced with other foundations. I like a little less coverage during the day to see some of my own skin showing through, so I have done some experimenting with this and have found that I like it best as my evening base. (I use MUFE's lighter weight F&B for daytime.) Using a sponge, standard foundation brush, and fingers were all strike-outs for me with this. However, after seeing a m/u pro use a buffer brush to apply, I tried that and oh boy! I use this in the PM when I go out and want to be at my best. It is always stunning and perfect! Truly gives a "Wow-she's pretty" look to your face!
This product makes your skin look great, but only for about four hours. I bought the whole line of HD products from MUFE (primer/concealer/foundation/powder), and the foundation did not make it until lunchtime for me. I use it for pictures or on the weekends when I don't need to reapply.
Im caught in a dilemma because i love how lightweight this feels, like i not wearing anything at all and how it erases my flaws and makes my skin look radiant in mirrors and natural. However, it gives me small bumps allover my right cheek and that puts me off. I hate to admit this cos i really love this stuff and its finishing =) btw, i do not agree that its full coverage unless u keep dabbing it over the blemishes, however, its a good medium coverage. the bottle and the pump is very hygienic too.
Hands down the best liquid foundation I've ever used. I find that I'm always comparing this with MAC Face and Body and I toggle between the two because both are equally lovely. However, I feel that MUFE's one provides better coverage in comparison to Face and Body. It's oil-free, which is always welcome and I've always used this with their HD primer and its effects are amazing!
Although it is indeed very pricey (and I only use it for the weekends), but I've never come across a product which blends so beautifully into the skin that it looks as though I'm not wearing foundation. Definitely repurchasing it despite its price tag because I JUST LOVE THIS IMMENSELY.
CONCLUSION: Great foundation but it doesn’t last: won’t repurchase. I feel like HD is best used for beauty photography or events…not everyday use.
MY PREFERENCES: I’m not a foundation wearer, normally I don’t like the suffocating feel and the fake look that it seems to impart. So I need something that feels light, that’s easy to apply and looks amazingly natural. I have good skin to begin with but I like to even out the redness around my nose and mouth. I have been applying half a pump of HD with my fingertips to sheer it out for lighter coverage.
Looks amazing in person and in photos. No cakeyness, no “fake” look. In fact, aside from beautiful skin, I can’t even tell I’m wearing anything.
Color match is perfect: I’ve been using 115 for my nw20 skin
Pump packaging is nice.
Feels lightweight; doesn’t feel like it’s suffocating my skin
Covers and evens out nicely
Finish is a “my skin but better” look…not matte, not dewy.
Price ($40!), which I wouldn’t shy away from if the product lasted on my skin
Scent: kind of old fashioned, rose/Chanel sort of, but it disappears quickly.
Doesn’t control oil (but also, it doesn’t claim to)
It doesn’t last. As one that is picky about the suffocating skin feeling anyway, adding the additional steps of a primer, powder, and then touching up with powder throughout the day is just too much. The fact that HD doesn’t last more than a few hours on me is what has killed the love.
This foundation has good coverage and feels great on my skin. I found the best way to apply was with a "skunk" brush and stipple it on, this gives it an almost perfect airbrush type finish. I actually prefer it to using my airbrush gun that I use for photo shoots. The finish is matte, but not overly dry, and after a few hours my skin does not feel oily like some foundations leave it.
This make up provides the best and most even coverage that I have ever tried. The color matches my skin tone flawlessly. I love this stuff and would use it less sparingly if it wasn't so expensive. Used in combo with the MUFE primer (with SPF), MUFE HD translucent powder, MUFE mist & fix spray, it works brilliantly.
For what it is worth, I have some minor acne scarring / discoloration and oily skin.
I do hear what people are saying about how long this foundation lasts BUT when I applied this product with the primer it STAYS PUT....just the other night i went to an event that started 4 and finished at 3am and my make up STAYED put....even in a hot sweaty club environment. WITHOUT the primer then yeah, it does seem to wear off by midday BUT this foundation is so light but with amazing coverage that it just takes a tiny touch up in the "problem" areas to fix it again. I personally prefer it over MAC products....I've been through the mill with all the MAC products and have always been disappointed. Also as I have dry skin this foundation is a god send, it keeps my skin looking fresh and glowing and doesn't get all chalky or patchy, it looks amazing on. I love it!
I was really excited to buy this foundation but after using it for a while i noticed that it does not last throughout the day and my skin looks oily after only an hour or two.. Even though it looks nice on my skin in the beginning it doesn't last thats why i wouldn't purchase this again
