It's become my go-to foundation. Good coverage for my red aging skin & visible pores. Considering my dry skin it spreads and blend pretty well. I also love that it comes with a pump dispenser. continued >>
This was my first "high end" foundation and I still absolutely love this. The shade range is incredible (I'm in #15) and the finish is so beautiful!! Love love LOVE this foundation! It is expensive, but its worth it to me. I recommend to everyone! :)
Too bad I don't like like this product...at all. After seeing all the videos and great review about it i couldn't wait to have it. I saw that it can hide imperfection perfectly and give flawless result BUT when i finally bought it, it was total garbage. :(
I put this on after my moisturizer and primer and set it with powder but the result is such a shame. The coverage is sheer to medium, some say its full coverage but i don't think so no matter how much you put it on your flaw it will still show through, you need to work it with concealer. I have oily acne-prone skin, but sometimes my skin get a bit dry. When i apply it on my face it looks nice but after 3 hours or so...oil mess! My T zone gets really really oily in short period of times really, my nose is the most oily part and the foundation goes off, it looks terrible. It doesn't even stay half the day! So i really don't recommend it for people with oily skin or people who tend to get oily in the T zone area. To make it worse it gave me break out. I think it's one of the ingredients in it. It sometimes look really greasy on me too. Ugggh. What a waste of money! It's quite pricey. Oh btw my color range is nc20 and somehow it looks a bit yellow-ish but its okay for me because i have yellow skintone.
If you're searching for foundation that will stay all day through activities, this one won't work.
I was initially delighted with this foundation but sadly this is not for me...it is SO oily! Granted, I have oily skin to begin with, but the amount of slip this foundation develops throughout the day is embarrassing. Not to mention it also seems to stain my skin—I have to really, REALLY scrub my face to get it off. While it is not for me, however, I think a dry-skinned gal would possibly be very happy with this. Going to swap my bottle!
For something rated to be so great, I was so sad that it wasnt that great.. It slipped all over the place, the coverage with one pump is light to Med, and just ok...
For this price i expected more,, went and bought the Mat and Velvet find my review there.
Will not ever buy this again..
This is the one and only foundation I've found that actually matches my super-pale skin and doesn't oxidize. I wish I could find a cheaper option, since this stuff is responsible for my astronomical spending at Sephora, but it's so good it's been my splurge for the last year or so. My skin is acne-prone and combination but this stays put on my face and doesn't break me out, nor does it adhere to blemishes and look flaky (which my expensive Lancome used to do). I do start with moisturizer and primer, so that might be why it stays put, but other reviews seem to suggest that doesn't work for everybody with this product. Coverage is great for evening out my skin; I kill my atomic dark circles with concealer but otherwise this foundation completely smooths out my tone. It also looks fantastic in pictures.
I docked it for the price and for the fact that I can't ever extricate every last drop from the bottle, but other than that...it's great.
I had been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for about 5 years when a friend used this foundation on me for a photo shoot. I have normal to dry skin with no acne. I was amazed at the finish and coverage this gives. IT IS AMAZING. However, make sure you get color matched, since MUFE has about 30 shades. I know enough about undertones and shades and such so I was able to color match myself but the girl buying the same foundation next to me had a color 3 shades too dark in her hand and the sales girl and I had to help. That being said, everyone has their own way of applying this too. I personally use the cheapie sponges from Target for the time being. I would like to get a beautyblender but can't fathom spending $26 on a SPONGE. However I have heard it works miracles. Stippling, flat foundation brushes, and fingers also work to give amazing coverage with this. It's not so thick that you have to work ultra fast, which I like. Having taken a 5 year hiatus from liquid makeup, I remember having to work at warp speed to keep it from streaking. Maybe it was the cheap makeup I was using in high school or just the anti acne stuff, I don't know. Either way, this is a good priced foundation that lasts a long time, has great coverage, looks awesome on camera, and lasts all day. Worth the $ and a good buy...
Apparently this is Sephora's best selling foundation in North America.
Look, I tried this on in Sephora and I like the fact that their consultants are well-trained so the colour is perfect.
As is the texture - it gives good coverage without being heavy and it's easy to use.
However. I have oily skin and this slips and slides all over the place!
The packaging is also really bad - it's a pump bottle but a LOT of the foundation has caught up in the pimp itself - big waste.
For something so expensive, I'd be expecting much more
I have tried many brands from YSL, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Lancome, Givenchy to Clinique. But this has been my favorite because:
1. unlike the other brands I have used it does not break me out.
2. love the color selection. I have medium skin with cool undertones and matched with
shade # 128 which is perfect.
3. comes with a pump which I like.
4. I have combination skin and have had no problems in terms of oiliness or dryness.
I love this foundation for special occasions where I know I'm going to get photographed, as this looks amazing in pictures. Add the MUFE HD powder and it's perfect. The downside to this foundation is that it's not a long wearing one, and even with a good primer it will not last me an 8 hour workday.
I've also had some issues with the colors, even though they have a great range. I use 120 although it will make me look very yellow when I am more pale, and I have tried 125, 130, and 135 in hopes one of these would work in winter, but it seems 120 is the only one that closely matches my skin all year round.
