I was so bought by the rave review of this product and as make-up addict I HAVE to check it out. I'm a student with allowance so, yeah, this is SOO expensive for me. When the MUA tried it on my face it looks amazing. My skin glows, looks flawless and match my skin tone perfectly. Got it in N128. And then I wiped it off. The truth came out when I tried it at home... When it is first applied, the color match my skin tone but then it oxidizes and become much much darker than original!!!!!! It still gave all the amazing HD feature though but my face is two to three shades darker than my neck and body!!! And I agree it doesn't stay long. I have to touch it up every four hours or so or else it will go all over the place. Well there goes my HK $420 (US $54).....
Been trying to find a good foundation for my wedding day, and this is definitely not it. I applied with a beauty blender. Looks great at first! Glowy and natural finish. HOWEVER, after 3-4 hours, it starts to fade. Yes, this was with Smashbox primer and UD setting spray. By the end of my workday, redness and blemishes were showing through, and I just looked tired. If I wanted sheer coverage, i would just use a tinted moisturizer! I know it has to do with my oily T-Zone. Its not bad, but when you look at the value of the product, I just can't justify paying for the price, then no. And the search continues.
I got this a while ago and I really like it for when I'm going out and such. I used to wear it every day, however i stopped that because I don't really see many people at work, and I don't care if my skin looks absolutely perfect, plus its like 45$ so there's no point in wasting. Before this, I was using Neutrogena Healthy Skin and Im one of those lame people who sometimes think that higher price=better quality which is so untrue! This foundation is really nice, and if you have the money then I recommend it. It has a nice medium coverage and covers up bad spots without overdoing it. Why does it get a 3? because I really don't see too much of a difference between this and my old $10 Neutrogena. The MUFE doesn't dry out oily areas nor does it hydrate dry areas. It doesn't make me oily and it doesn't control oil. Doesn't make me break up, but doesn't help the breakouts I already have.
Overall my makeup basically looks the same when I wear this expensive one and when I wear the cheap one. I really like the pump bottle though, for hygenic reasons. Other than that, I would say I wont be buying this again based on the price. I have no problem putting out money for good products, but this one is just not doing anything special for me to want to shell out the money for it.
I really did like this foundation... it wasnt very heavy on my skin, and didnt well to cover my blemishes. I didnt feel like it was my holy grail foundation, but is a product i definitely recommend.
I recently bought this foundation after much deliberation and have to say that I really like it! For what I want in a foundation, this pretty much gets it spot on. It is lightweight, medium coverage that does not cake the skin at all and blends in like a dream. It enhances my skin rather than sticks to it, though it definitely isn't full coverage so if that's what you're after, this isn't for you. I use the matching powder and they work well together and wear well through the day. I have also found that I haven't broken out at all whilst using this foundation, and I am someone who struggles deeply with acne. Whether or not this is the foundation I cannot say for sure but it has been since I have started using it around a month ago so at least it isn't clogging pores and lets my skin breathe. I don't know whether this is my HG just yet, but it's doing a great job so far! Worth the money.
I gave this a 3 for a few reasons. I'll tell my story. Okay, so I was at sephora and I went up to a worker and asked her if she could help me find a foundation that was full coverage, light enough for my skin tone, and not heavy feeling. ( I only ask for full coverage because I have freckles and some redness and freckles can be quite hard to cover.) So she took me to this product, got 117, & applied it with a sponge. It felt pretty nice on my skin and was a perfect match and evened out my skin tone. So I immediately bought it. It's a splurge if you're my age. (42 US dollars) But I thought hey, i have tried so many foundations and if this is the right one for me, Its worth the money. So anyway, I have been using it and it seems OK except it made me VERY oily! I am a combination skin and I am normally dry. So I normally do not get oily. I had to blot and use setting powder. It also doesn't have great staying power. Only about 6-7 hours. But the shade selection was great and it DOES match my skin. Which is one of the pros. It also has medium to buildable coverage . It can make your skin feel like its suffocating, though. But that's why i gave it a three- because it makes my t-zone quite oily.
Got a sample of this foundation in 117 after being color matched by the MUA. Before I got the sample I patted a bit on my cheeks in the store and was really excited about it- finally a high end foundation pale enough for me! One day in though, and I'm not sure i'll even finish my sample. Wore it today with my usual primer (Rimmel Primer #2) and my usual Revlon Photo Ready Powder in translucent, and boy am I disappointed. When I first put it on it looked like an okay color match- a little darker and yellower then it had looked in the store, but decent. The finish was also okay- not the velvet sheen that I get from my beloved Clinique super balanced, but not bad. Switch to 1/2 way through the day and coverage is fading fast and I look somewhat greasy; a big surprise since I would characterize my skin as dry to very dry. Cut to 8pm and I look incredibly dry and a little sallow. Combine that with its gross texture (the stuff looks like flesh colored water) and I will definitely NOT be purchasing.
Only reason it gets a lippie is because MUFE seems to be one of the few higher end brands (I'm looking at you, smashbox) that is willing to make super pale foundations.
Edit:: works a lot beter with smashbox primer, but I'll still never buy- if I'm shelling out $42 USD then I want it to look good with cheaper products too!
It's perfect to my skin to hide my fores and can cover little my acne scars. I had acnes before, and that showed and remained on my skin. I want to hide that and my fores. My fores are being larger and larger, so I need to cover my fores. It's good for covering fore. However, I give rating 4, because its lasting is not forever. After 5~6 hours, the makeup was gone. So, I have to re-touch my makeup. After retouching, my skin looks perfect!
I love my natural look skin.
I take off one star because I need retouching, but even if I need retouching, it's perfect Foundation so I will buy again until I find better foundation.
Thank you for reading my review.
I'm so sorry to my english is too bad, but I tried to my best :)
Amazing foundation. Looks like skin, perfect shade range, the only foundation that not only lasts on my face, but seems to make whatever you put on top of it last too ! Never seen such wonder
