omg I found my perfect one. This product really stays on well even after all day. I usually use this only with a little bit powder, and no one notice that I am wearing a foundation. when I wear this foundation my father always told me that he is glad to me see wear no foundation :)) he cant notice ı am wearing a foundation actually :)) anyway ıf i want a really good coverage or want to look like a baby doll I mix with hd and mat velvet foundation together.mixing them together provide you a really high coverage
25 shades? Helz yea!
I am middle-eastern. I've got what a Caucasian cosmetician would proabably consider a "complex" skin-tone. I have a medium shade olive tone - and its only "complex" because the beauty industry unfortuneately is dominated by "Europeans" (whites, westerners, or whatever you wanna call them). Therefore.....
Everywhere I turn, I couldn't find my shade of foundation. Everything's too pink, too yellow, too light, too dark, too gray or too orange. Even with the so called L'oreal "true-match" around (match my a*s) I didn't find it.
So when I tried this by accident I was blown away. 95% match perfection. Im sure I can get it 100% after looking at the sephora website but too bad where I bought it they only sold some of the shades. But it surprises me even with that, I could get away with more than one of them!! PERFECT. Perfect coverage and blend-ability too. AND close-up worthy, HD indeed!
Only con : Mr whitehead likes to come to town if I leave it on for too long, or, don't cleanse it off properly.
edit: i've taken to mixing this with a teensy blob of Smashbox Tinted Moisturizer for the summer. I absolutely HATED the Smashbox TM! Had it for a long time (a year? 2 years?) basically never used, as on its own it sucked & broke me out, didn't mix well with my other foundations--it would dilute the coverage or just not work well... when mixing with HD, for the first time, i am FINALLY using it up, because it works well.. the TM adds a teensy bit of dewiness/sheerness, but the MUFE HD is nice & long-lasting, with enough coverage, that they work well together. Also, not breaking out from this combo, whereas just using Smashbox TM alone, I do! Hurrah
Oh my GOD. I am SO happy with this. I was feeling so down about purchasing it because when the SA matched my skin to 153, she was in a rush. Then I found that the reviews here varied widely between loving it and hating it, and i was prepared to find it a waste of money. Especially as I already own many foundations.
This is the BEST foundation I have tried in my life. Granted, i haven't tried lots of highly raved about ones like GA Skin Fabric or any of Estee's, Chanel VA Aqua, etc. But for me, personally? The search ends here.
First of all, the colour match is perfect. In daylight you can't see where the foundation begins and the skin ends. It does not fade or look patchy after a while. It looks good indoors, and outdoors. It covers up any flaws, but of course I still need concealer--just, less than usual. It has a semi-matte finish which looks very natural.
I can always mix my Boots No 7 beauty balm, high beam, or even a moisturizer if i want more "dewiness"--this makes it rather versatile. This is what I did today and my skin looked PERFECT outdoors (i checked, lol).
My two favourite youtubers, makeupbyeman, and maggiealex8380, both use it in their tutorials, and look really good with it on, which further validates the purchase. I always loved how great the foundation made their skin look in videos, and I'm glad to finally own this item. Finally, it looks like I'm not wearing foundation but just have good skin, which is the clincher. For reference, my favourite liquid foundation before this was Dior Airflash. I loved it but I always break out from it (the kind that lie under the skin's surface) no matter how extensive my cleansing routine is. If your skin is not sensitive, I would recommend that, the finish is very pretty and natural, and it lasts all day.
I don't know how I feel about this. It gives me perfect skin, and looks amazing in photos. It lasts forever. But I get so oily. I know it's not the foundations fault but I can't help but be disapointed. This set me back $46 dollars with tax, which is a tad pricey but worth every penney for the before and after results! I am in the shade 110, which is pink porcelain. It matches perfectly, and looks airbrushed in photos. So I'm giving it a four, one lippie off for lack of oil control.
I LOVE this. I own this in 117 and it's the best foundation I've ever had; it needs a little bit of blotting after a few hours on a very hot day, but that's true of any foundation. I can see this being great for the winter, too.
The coverage is amazing, and if you're having a really bad skin day, it's buildable, so no worries there. Use concealer as needed-- most days I don't need it, though, with this stuff! Yay!-- and set it with your translucent powder, and you should be good to go!
I don't understand why this foundation has such a low rating. I will say this, Yes, I get oily after a few hours and need to blot, however that happens to me with ANY foundation I use. For those who complain about coverage, this foundation can be easily layered for more coverage. I use a stippling brush and do a "once over", then go back and will add more foundation where I need it. It layers b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l-l-y. It looks like skin, not like you caked on makeup. Apply with the Real Techniques stippling brush and set it with Ben Nye's Banana Powder and you'll be set. I wore this for my wedding day and it photographs amazingly. I looked flawless in pictures with or without flash. Anytime I wear this people compliment me on how beautiful my skin looks. I've never worn this on a daily basis so I can't comment on breakouts, I save it for special events and nights out. Also, to help with the oil, before applying powder to set the foundation, I press a tissue all over my face, then apply the powder. Overall a great foundation!
This foundation gives a sheer coverage and makes dry patches appear more obvious. It gives your skin a smooth and flawless look on photo but not in reality. Oily after 3-4hours.
Very pretty! and looks very natual, BUT be aware if you have dry flaky skin.. Be sure to exfoliate and mousterise before use! cant say anything bad except the price.. But it is worth the money.
Finally the perfect liquid foundation. I ordered this cheap on eBay knowing it was a color a bit to light for my skin (no worries just mixing with a little liquid bronzer). I love the consistency, it's a little on the runny side so it's easy to apply. The coverage is great too and it last literally all day (I usually pair with primer and a setting spray to be fair). I really like how flawless this makes your skin look!
The colour selection for this range is awesome! I have shades 140 and 128. Sometimes I mix them because 140 is too light and 128 is too yellow/tanned. Its quite sheer and gives a very natural look. The only gripe I have is that after a few hours it has sunk into my skin and makes my dry skin flaky.
