I wanted to love this foundation after all the reviews, but I didn't. I didn't like the way it looked on my skin - made my pores look bigger and just seemed cakey. I don't like foundation that looks like you are wearing foundation and thats what this is. It seems to highlight any imperfections - the opposite of what you want a foundation to do.
I don't understand the hype. I went back to Sephora and the MUA told me to try MUFE Liquid Lift foudation - which is amazing. I think this is also the foundation Kim Kardashian orginally named on her blog. It was discontinued for awhile but they have brought it back. If you thinking MUFE HD isn't all what it is hyped up to be try the MUFE Liquid Lift which will makes your skin look really great.
Nice foundation that can be built up if you need it. For me which makes htis foundation a big winner is that packaging, I want a pump or a tube. But th ekey for me is that this pump travels really well, I do my makeup after swimming at the gym and many bottles start to leak if you travel with them. After 2 weeks of use the MUFE foundation is still looking nice and doesn't leak.
Before i start i should say i have combinatio skin. I now understand the rave about this product. It is an amazing product. I am an nc 30 and the color i have is 127 which matches my skin perfectly. It gives a dewy semi mate finish. I was a bit scared of trying this product due to my combination skin.When i went to sephora I couldn't resist but get the product. Next day i tried it on. My skin looked amazing ! It had never looked that good before.Since it gave a little dewy finish i set it with a matte powder. At the end of the day my skin still looked flawless and a little bit dewy because of my oily skin. I love this product a lot. I would recommend this to people with dry/normal and combination skin. I would repurchase this product even though it's pricey. I only use this on special occasions so i don't see myself running out anytime soon. I am happy with the purchase i made.
I love this foundation!! May be a little tricky to apply.. I noticed in other reviews, people mentioned that it kept sliding off their skin...it did that with mine too.. But if used with the hd microfinishing powder it works like a charm! I've went through 3 bottles already.. I'm quite fair so I mix the 120 and 123 to match my skin tone.. I wish this would go on sale though. It's really pricey!!
I love it but I get tiny little pimples on my face if I use it too often. But I would definitely buy it again.
I am extremely grateful for the wide array of color selections and undertone choices that MUFE has to offer. Their shades are also very forgiving, meaning you can be a little "off" with your shade and it will still blend relatively well. I currently have 120 Soft Sand.
I find this makeup is a bit difficult to layer without losing that flawless finish. Therefore, I'd consider it a medium coverage, not completely "full". For those wanting more coverage since this makeup doesn't always layer well, I'd recommend a tinted finishing powder like MAC Skinfinish natural, or for a cheaper choice, perhaps Maybelline Dream Matte.
Despite this, I find that even with extreme redness and splotchiness, this makeup does very well to even out my skintone, and I just apply one coat, sometimes with a little bit of concealer. It blends beautifully onto my skin, although if you have dry patchy skin this formula might cling to to imperfections and blemishes.
One thing I would like to note from experience for those complaining about "cakiness" is this: If you spot-clean your brushes between uses like I do, or even spray them with water thinking it will assist with that airbrushed feel, do keep in mind that if the brush is even slightly damp, I have noticed that this will actually take the makeup from "airbrushed" to splotchy. It will not blend well and it will cling in patches. I think this might be because of the silicone, but that is only my assumption.
And when it comes to the silicone, also remember that this ingredient in makeup often makes it a more dense formula, which means less is certainly more. If you continue to build and build and build with a silicone-based makeup, it tends to just look cakey and not really improve.
For those worried about oiliness at the end of the day, I do have oily skin, although I can't say it's quite as bad as others I know. I will say that although the makeup does stay on my skin, I do notice some oil start to peek through in the later hours of the work day. I, however, hate the completely matte look, and tend to expect this in any semi-matte to natural finish makeup. Others, though, who have a lot of problems with oil, might find they have a bit of trouble with this makeup staying put or looking really shiny after a while.
As I am also one with very sensitive and acne-prone skin, I have found that this makeup does not break me out. Silicone and fragrance, however, are two ingredients that can often set off acne prone and sensitive skin, so the only thing one can do is try samples first, as only you know what is best for your skin!
All in all, I love this makeup. It is the best I have had so far in regards to my own personal skin type and shades.
This goes on nicely, the range offers a good color match and it feels weightless, but after a while looks like it's separating and looks blotchy. This also accentuates every tiny line and patch of dry skin. (I have combo skin) My skin always looks really dry when I wear this ever if I've moisturized, primed etc etc. I've tried different application methods and I've never found a way to make this work. This is very similar to the results I've gotten with UD naked skin. I much prefer the results I get with Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream.
When I first went to Sephora, the sales assistant matched me to #117 eventhough I felt it was a bit too grey. He told me that after oxidisation, it would be just right. I took his word for it but whenever I wore it, it made me look ashy-grey!
I went to another Sephora and yet again, the sales assistant there matched me to #117. I mentioned that it looked ashy-grey and said I could try #120 if I'd like to tho' it might be too dark for me
Hoping not to waste #117, I bought #120 and mixed the 2 each time. While it is slightly on the dark side, it's still acceptable. My main grouse is that it's a bit too oily for my face.
Personally, I think Bourjois 123 Perfect liquid foundation is way better and way cheaper. Won't be repurchasing MUFE HD foundation.
I ended up picking this foundation up after my old foundation, Vincent Longo's Water Canvas, didn't work well with my skin anymore. I chose something from MUFE's line for the simple fact that they have colors that actually match my skin. I've found that so many foundations (even high end ones) look fabulous when they're applied in the store but end up looking far too yellow or far too dark when I go outside in natural light. Not the case with this foundation.
I've been using the HD Foundation for almost a year and a half now and really have no complaints. I use this in conjunction with MUFE's HD Microperfecting Primer (in Mauve) along with Microperfecting Powder. While I don't have flawless skin by any stretch of the imagination, this combination of products somehow make my skin look passable - even good! It blends perfectly into my skin and has yet to oxidize or turn some weird phantom color in a different light.
I also like the fact that this foundation comes in plastic bottle with a pump. I don't like having to dip my fingers into foundation or having to use a q-tip, and I really don't like glass bottles that I will invariably drop.
The only downside is that most of MUFE's line is a bit pricey. The products usually last forever and a day (ha!) and are of good quality, so I can justify the cost. For the time being, this foundation seems to work for me so I'll definitely repurchase.
This foundation really is not all that bad, if you have normal skin. It gives a nice coverage, had a GREAT color selection, and looks beautiful in pictures. The only problem is if you have oily skin. For a couple hours it looks really good, but then it starts to look like an oily mess. I tried the hd powder that it came with and the hd primer, but that did not work either. I used setting sprays and blotted, but that also did not work. I would still end up looking patchy by the time my classes were over. I think this would be better for people who do not have oily skin.
