i have just started using it being "seduced" by my friend who adores it. well, at this point wouldn't say it's worth such a high price, or perhaps it just doesn't match my skin-type. In areas where my skin is normal to dry, it looks pretty decently, but the T-zone gets oily fairly quickly and also the pores, spots and all other "beautiful areas" are not masked evenly. The texture works much better when you moisturize well before applying, otherwise it's too creamy and can cake up in some areas. i don't mind the smell at all, and the bottle is good too (a little heavy) but the pump is perfect. i have porcelain skin and number one is almost a good match, number two is already too yellow
i will give it a try because there WERE days when it looked very nice on me; however, i can get similar effect from a cheaper foundation (beauty for all season for e.g.)
I called the New York store and they said it is not discontinued. Everybody has called in to order thinking it is discontinued and so they are waiting for more stock from France. So you can still get it. You just have to go thru the MUF stores.
I love this foundation. I am not liking the new HD foundation. Anyway, this foundation gives you a dewey, clean look. Not powdery. I hope this stays around. I always get complements on my skin when I wear this. Not my makeup. That says alot.
Let the lamentations begin - Sephora is discontinuing this product both online and in the shops.
I used 01, about as light as I would go, a light, luminous coverage, and wanted to get another - but Sephora is not selling it anymore.
""Make Up For Ever Liquid Lift Foundation has been discontinued on our website as well as our stores. We greatly apologize for the inconvenience. The Make Up For Ever HD Foundation has a similar texture which is slightly thicker but not heavy in texture. The HD Foundation does offer more coverage, and while it does help to minimize imperfections such as lines and pores, the HD Foundation does a better job of soaking up excess oil, but yet is still hydrating and does not sink into lines.
Here are some of the key ingredients of this foundation, which is designed to photograph flawlessly and look like skin in all lighting conditions.
-Relipidium: Moisturizes the skin (+46% after 4 hours).
-Fucogel: Forms a microfilm that prevents dehydration and protects against external aggression.
-Sericite: Enables rays of light to spread more widely, intensifying the radiance of the complexion.
This is their most cutting edge formula, so you may find that you enjoy this even more than the Liquid Lift Foundation.""
MUFE HD foundation is the newer one. I'm trying it out: the palest one (110) was too pale on me (Nicole Kidman Kabuki shade) ; 115, (pink undertone) or 117 (yellow undertone) were closer. Lots of colors on the HD - I'd suggest trying it in the shop with sample before buying.
Revision as of Nov 2012 :
Sephora does seem to have relisted this as a "new" product!
Let the rejoicing begin!
I just started using this foundation. So far so good. I wear No. 3 I buff it on with M.A.C. brush 180 and set it with M.A.C. sheer select pressed powder NC30 using M.A.C brush 150.
It's not the cheapest foundation, but it feels the least mask like. I was turned onto Revlon's ColourStay foundation when I was working on a movie. The makeup artist mixed it with some liquid M.A.C stuff to get the right colour, but I found I liked the ColourStay just by itself (not a huge fan of M.A.C anymore). The only thing was that I could really "feel it" when it was on my skin. Liquid Lift's coverage isn't as heavy/matte as Revlon's, but it feels a lot lighter on my skin and leaves a more natural, dewy look (Note: dewy, not SHINY or SPARKLEY), and a little goes a long way with this product. I use the flat brush to paint it on and a year later the bottle is still half full. I find this foundation particularly good for dry skin. The bottle could be improved though. It's hard to know what shade you have because there's no info on the bottle. Makes it hard to remember for re-purchase especially if this stuff lasts as long as it does.
The coverage is good but the smell is terrible. It's very strong and doesn't go away immediately. That's one of the drawbacks of this foundation. The color is ok but too muddy for my yellow-undertone skin. I'm a NC40 and I use #4. However, it's great for my dry skin. If you find a foundation match and don't mind the scent, then buy this if you have dry skin.
I really like this. Let me preface this review by saying that I hate the look of obvious makeup--where you can spot foundation on a woman's 10 feet away. When I bought this product, I was looking for something that could do double-duty as a concealer, and this product works perfectly for that. I agree with other reviewers re smell--very heavey smell. I learned about this brand when I was a bridesmaid and was made up a very in-demand makeup artist.
It is expensive but a little bit goes a long way. I cannot remember but I think I bought shade #2.
I love MUFE foundations! Liquid Lift is close to HG. This foundation offers medium coverage and a dewy, natural finish.
Pros: 1) Most importantly, LL has not broken out my combination skin. 2) I find that my concealer applies more smoothly and seamlessly over this foundation than any other. 3) I absolutely adore the finish. Very natural and pretty - makes my skin look dewy and believable, definitely not heavily-made up or greasy. 4) Finally! A great color match (NC25-30, Asian, #10 is my color).
Cons:1) The texture/finish is a bit TOO moist for me; I wish it was a little drier. I definitely need to set with a powder else it's sticky city. 2) This could definitely be cheaper. $41?? Ouch. 3) How transportation-unfriendly can packaging get? The heavy glass pump bottle is nice for my countertop, but risky for travel.
Other notes: This has a somewhat heavy, flowery scent during application that some may dislike; it doesn't bother me. Oil control is decent, but not stellar - I imagine this to be great for dry skintypes, but not for very oily ones.
Overall, I love this foundation. My makeup collection would feel sad and incomplete without Liquid Lift. Give it a shot!
A few years ago, I started experiencing dry skin. Before then, my skin was oily. When it was oily, I used Make Up For Ever's Mat foundation and it worked great. However, when my skin changed and became dry, this wouldn't work anymore. I started using the Liquid Lift foundation since it was recommended for dry skin. It works great! It makes my skin look great. My pores look smaller and it doesn't settle into the fine lines on my face. It makes my skin feel great, not tight. Love it!!
My mom gave me a couple of samples of this foundation, and I really loved it so much that I went out and bought it. I was using Clinique Superfit foundation in Creamwhip, and I really didn't like how it looked dry and unnatural.
I purchased this foundation in shade No. 9. The samples my mom gave me were in shade No. 1. Both looked nice and blended naturally with my skin tone, but I believe No. 9 has more of a yellow tone. I like No. 1 because it doesn't have a lot of pink in it. It's lighter than No. 9, but I decided to go darker with No. 9 instead.
This foundation has medium coverage, and it glides onto my face like a second skin. This foundation looks very natural, and compared to the other foundations that I've used before I don't look made-up even with the medium coverage. I like how it looks moist and dewey without looking greasy. This foundation photographs well also. My face looked natural and not greasy in pictures.
This foundation has not made me break out which is a plus also.
