This is the best foundation i ever came across. Lately i've been on the look for a foundation with light coverage that will even out the skintone. And this is just that. It really leaves a beautiful finish which is undetectable with the bare eye, even in bright sunlight. It takes away the redness in my complexion and makes it just look really fresh and healthy. It stays color true, i didnt expierence any oxidation whatsoever.
As with all sheer foundations, this will not cover scars, acne, pimples etc. This will only even out the skintone.
How i use it is, I shake the bottle up real good and poor a bit on the back of my hand. So far, i find it applies best using a plain foundation brush. On application it feels really cooling which is nice. I have dry skin and dont find that it dries my skin out or anything, if anything it actually hydrates my skin.
The color range is absolutly great and the SA really helped me pick out the right color. I am fair skinned (NW 15-20) and got the color number 20.
The consistency is pretty unique, its kind of a watery gel like texture.
The only downside would be the pricetag. I live in Europe, so here its extra expensive compared to the US (48 euros). But that wont stop me from buying it again when i run out!
After looking at the reviews am planning on buying this product.I got very light undereye circles so my question here is can this be used only as a concealer.Am trying to order it online,can anyone here suggest me what shade will suit me best? I am NW30 in mac select coverup.Am a pale asian with yellow undertone.
This is an absolutely beautiful foundation. When I put it on, it makes my skin look like it is perfectly clear, with no makeup, just a dewy glow. I love the gel texture and it works so well with a stippling brush or my fingers.
The only problem is, each time I use it, I break out. I am currently recovering from a breakout of whiteheads on my chin because, for the fourth time or so, I pulled out MUFE F&B thinking I'd try it again, maybe it really wasn't responsible for my breakout. Nope. Whiteheads all over my chin.
I would definitely recommend trying this foundation due to the glowing reviews here, and the glowing finish it gives, especially if you don't break out easily. I wish it had worked for me.
I received 2 of these in a swap on here. The #32 didn't have a pump (older packaging), but the #34 has a pump (new packaging). The pump is great. It's so sheer that both shades work for me. I can also mix them together. For reference i'm Barcelona in NARS, and in MAC Pro Longwear NW35, I'm NC40 in Studio Fix Fluid & Mineralize Satin Finish, and in Avon I'm Pure Beige.
I just tried this out about 2 hours ago, and already, i like it MUCH better than the MAC (which I swapped this for). The MAC one you get more bang for your buck, however this formula is nicer in my opinion. The MAC one smells better. They are both light coverage and on the runny side. In my opinion, the MAC one is more liquidy and sometimes, it tends to feel sticky on the skin throughout the day (especially in the heat). the MUFE doesn't feel sticky AT ALL! HUGE Plus. It's more gel based than the MAC. Blends nicely and buildable, and it literally looks like natural skin (only more polished & better! :) I LOVE the natural look of this foundation. If you want/need fuller coverage, you will hate this. If you want a natural coverage, just to even out skintone and look polished, but not look made up, you will LOVE this. It's pricey, but it's worth it.
If you're debating between this and the MAC, this will feel nicer on the skin and not sticky.
I haven't used this in a while, so I decided to give it a go again & I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I've been using it for about the past month now. I love the fact that this is so lightweight but it covers sooo well. You have to shake this foundation before use. It's runny, but not as runny as the MAC one. I use about 2 layers for good coverage. (it's buildable). i'm just so amazed because this is so lightweight and feels so lightweight on the skin but covers so well. nice, natural looking everyday coverage. 2 thumbs up. only downside in my eyes is that the price went up to $40!
This foundation is fabulous and basically identical to MAC's face and body except it doesn't break you out like everything Mac does. It is very sheer which for me is perfection as I have super clog/breakout prone skin and rarely wear foundation aside from nights out where I just wanted something to slightly balance out my slightly flushed cheeks/overall tone (pretty fair). For that it is perfect and really just enhances your skin for a flawless natural look. Ofcourse for those who need heavy coverage I would look elsewhere (MUFE's Mat Velvet is an amazing option). I hate the feel of most foundations (hence why have never worn them daily and have always been a skincare natzi to not have to) in general and pretty much all of them break out my fussy skin. This one is just so light and you can't feel it on. For my needs couldn't ask for more. Absolutely love MUFE and it's quality makeup! :)
After reading all the great reviews about this foundation, I was really excited to try it. Especially since my skin has been looking so good lately (thank you, Cerave!) I've been a long-time user of DW Light, which I love, but it has a tendency to make my dry patches show up later in the day, and the color I was using (#2) was the tiniest bit too dark.
I really liked the no-makeup look face & body gives. It's very natural and looks nice when first applied. However, as the day wears on, my face feels greasy and I need to blot. I never needed to blot with DW Light. And I don't even have oily skin! I'm sure it's the Mango Seed butter/oil in this. I should have known, since my skin hates all oils. It didn't break me out, but I only used it for 2 days. I do think the fragrance is irritating my skin a little bit. The fragrance of this foundation is HORRID. It's so strong. Much stronger than Double Wear. It's too much for me.
It does a nice job of evening the skin, but it's too dewy and greasy-feeling for me. Setting it with powder didn't help, and I had to retouch throughout the day. I just don't like it.
Applying it with fingers is the best. It's too liquidy for a brush or sponge.
I got it in #32 Alabaster Beige, which was a pretty good color. A tad too yellow for me though, I prefer something more beige. At first I purchased #22, but had to exchange it because it was too pink and a little too dark. For reference, I'm NW20-25, #2 in DW Light. I have neutral undertones. Fresco was my perfect shade in Double Wear when I was paler, but now that I'm tanner, it's too light. I really wish EL would make a wider range of shades in DW Light, but that's another story.
I read a ton of reviews here on MUA about this foundation and then I went into Sephora to spot test. I'm glad I asked the SA for a sample to take home with me because I still wasn't sold on this product.
This is a water based foundation so the consistency is very thin. It spreads very easily.
This foundation is buildable.
Zero coverage. None. I've gotten more coverage with my ELF tinted moisturizer. You CAN build coverage but if you're looking for anything close to medium coverage, you'll end up using a decent amount of product and this stuff is 38 bucks at Sephora, so...not cheap at all.
I don't have sensitive skin. I've never actually had a reaction to a foundation before this one. It burned slightly and made my face red. At first I thought it was because I started using BP but I haven't had issues with any other foundation and BP so, I blame this.
I LOVE scented products. Like I said, I don't have sensitive skin so lovely fragrances in my face products just make my makeup experience more fun. This scent however is overwhelming, kind of a rose scent. I did NOT like it. Especially for the underwhelming coverage.
Ladies, if you're unsure of a foundation ask for a sample. Most stores will give you one happily. I'm SO GLAD I didn't spend $38.00 on this because it just doesn't work for me. Even if my skin hadn't reacted badly to this foundation I still wouldn't have purchased it. A VERY overpriced tinted moisturizer.
Great natural coverage and amazing staying power. I am a light tan NC30/C4 asian gal and use shade #34. I pump a quarter-sized blob in my palm, rub hands together, and smooth over face from forehead to neck. I have relatively blemish-free skin with some broken capillaries and redness around my nose, mouth, and chin. This foundation leaves me with even, fresh skin and a touch of dewy. I much prefer the Make Up Forever formula to the Mac Face&Body, which left me with a bit too much shine and not quite as much coverage as I want. With MUFE's formula, if I prime (Nars primer) and set (MUFE HD powder on T-zone only), I am shine free for 6 hours with a nice light-medium coverage. I look "finished," but not "made-up." Five lippies!
This is probably like the longest lemming that Ive had since being into makeup. After seeing so many rave reviews, I debated for a year before I actually got the courage to buy this foundation. I picked this up in 46 Cognac ( I am a NW50 in MAC for reference). It blends flawlessly into my skin and looks so natural. Its low coverage but I love that because my skin is good for the most part, so I dont have too much to cover. I am oily so I do use a mattifying and oil controlling primer to keep oil at bay. Overall it is an amazing foundation and I will def buy again!
I've been wearing this foundation since I was 16, I'm now 20. I have tried some others out during that time (Dior, MAC, Chanel, Bourjois, Face, L'Oreal and Bare Escentuals), but this is always what I go back to.
I do have quite good skin so I tend to look for a very light coverage. I hate foundation which is obvious and this most definitely is not, it looks like my natural skin. A great tip if you do need a better coverage or if your skin is tired is to try putting on Smashbox photo finish primer on underneath, then applying 2 light coats of this foundation. My skin looked like it had been photoshopped!!!
I'm glad the pump dispenser is now used, the older bottle tended to be a little wasteful, and two pumps is more than enough to cover my entire face generously. It feels natural on and it does last the day.
Regarding shades, I have found my absolute perfect shade. I'm 20 in this foundation, and it matches my skin so well that I can apply it in patches and it's not noticeable. If this was ever discontinued I'd cry!
I can't recommend this foundation enough :)
