Well here we are. Recently, I was in Macy's and learned that my beloved Prescriptives Virtual Skin in Real Camellia has been discontinued. This, my friends, is even worse news than finding out they've stopped making your favorite bra. And that's pretty bad. Well, I was able to buy up a couple last bottles of Virtual Skin, but I knew that eventually I'd have to commence the search for a new foundation HG and that it could take years. My problem is that I am very fair, and very cool toned. Clinique, for example, has nothing that matches me. I did quite a bit of online reading and came to the obvious conclusion that the color swatches they provide on beauty websites are COMPLETELY WORTHLESS. I don't know why they bother. Anyway, after reading all the good reviews here, I found the one that stood out and that I had a good feeling about is MUFE. I tramped back out to Sephora and, of course, they didn't carry the color I had read about, Pink 36. I persevered, however, and within a few days, the UPS man was ringing my doorbell. I had spent $38 on a makeup shade sight unseen. But it is just beautiful. When I compared the color even to the Px, I thought it was even more perfect for me. Today was the first day I gave it a try. After moisturizing as usual, I shook the bottle and used my fingers to apply it around my eyes, and my usual clean, damp sponge for the rest of my face. Since I use a sponge, I'm glad it doesn't have a pump, but I wish the opening was a bit smaller so I could cover it with my finger, but you can't have everything. Yes, it smells like rosewater, but I love roses, so no problemo. Yes, it has a weird lumpy sort of consistency, but I am really, really happy with it. It actually does look like my skin but better. I'm so happy to have stumbled on this find and this site. Thanks for a great recommendation.

I am a devoted powder foundation user and had purchased the Duo Mat Powder foundation. But I did not like the way it looked on me and exchanged it for this instead. I hate liquid foundations due to the mask-like look and feel. But this has completely changed my mind. I LOVE this foundation. I feel quite vain because I can't stop checking out my complexion. This is the only foundation that has passed my ultimate test: looking good under flourescent lighting. Shade 32 matches my skin perfectly. I shake it really well then use a foundation brush to scrape whatever sticks to the cap and repeat if I need more. It's silly to be so giddy over a foundation, but I can't help myself because it makes me look so darn good.Update: This would have been awesome if it didn't break me out. Also, the scent was so overwhelming that my little sister couldn't stand to be around me whenever I wore it.

*EDIT*The bottles now come with pumps. Yay!---This is one of my favorite foundations. I have it in two shades, one for winter and one for summer. It's my go to foundation for the "no makeup" makeup look, because it gives me the most natural finish I've ever experienced with any foundation. Once applied correctly, it looks like my skin, but better. I think it has to do with the gel like consistency, which threw me off at first, because I had a hard time figuring out the best method of application. From trial and error, I've found that your finger tips are the best tool for applying this. After primer (I use Monistat anti-chaffing gel) I use a q-tip to dab a bit on one area of my face, use my fingertips to rub it in a circular motion until it dries up, then I move onto another small area of the face. If I need extra coverage in some areas like the under eye area, around my nostrils, or to cover a blemished area, I just smooth on another layer after the initial layer dries, eliminating the need for concealer. It blends in flawlessly and doesn't look cakey at all. I usually finish with a loose powder (I use NARS, great!) and voila! Beautifully flawless, yet natural and not too done up. The only thing that I would change about this is the bottle and how you either have to pour it out (which usually gives you too much) or use a q-tip (which wastes product). Also, I've knocked it over with the cap off a couple of times and needless to say, I think I might have shed a tear. I would much rather have a pump dispenser, but I don't know if that would affect the integrity of the consistency. Another thing that I'm not sure if I mind is the fragrance. It's has a rather strong floral fragrance that might be too intense for some. My mother loves it, and I got used to it. I don't think it irritates my skin as much as any other foundation, because let's face it, whether it's comedogenic or not, make up still clogs pores if not properly removed.

I wanted to love this soooooooo bad!!!! It matches my skin perfectly and the finish is gorgeous. Like my skin, but much better.....until about an hour or two later. It looks like it melts off my face around my brows and around my nose and I don't have really oily skin! I have tried numerous ways to get it to stay on longer, but nothing as worked. It took me a year to work up the guts to buy this. I wanted it mostly for the staying power. so sad...I bought a setting spray from Skindinavia and it has helped with keeping my tinted moisturizer on all day. I decided to give F&B another try. It stays on all day with the setting spray and looks great!! I'm so happy because this is a beautiful foundation. I hate the look of foundation on your face. This just looks like your skin.

I cannot believe it!! MUFE finally added some new shades to their wondrous Face & Body Foundation! Life has new meaning. I purchased #38 Pink Porcelain, and it is perfect. Just perfect. Okay, not perfect - I have to layer it on on days when I need extra coverage, but it is as close to perfect as I think liquid foundation might ever get. This is my HG. All right, gushing aside, here is what I like about it. 1) Wonderful texture. It has this unique gel-like consistency, and once applied, it feels and looks like it's just skin. It doesn't look like you have foundation on at all. I normally only apply one layer to the top half of my face, and two or three to the bottom to ensure coverage of blemishes and to even out skin tone. The bottom half always perfectly matches the top even with those additional layers. 2) The color match is just about perfect. I am very pale-skinned, and until now, the very lightest shade was always too dark. Also, the color does not change. The way it looked on the first application is the way it looks when I wash it off at night. As far as dislikes, I wish it came in a pump bottle, I wouldn't mind if they made a version that had a little more coverage, and I wish it wasn't so expensive.

This is my HG foundation! I have dry skin, am 44 and use colour #20 and just love this product! I apply it using a makeup wedge rather than a brush as it blends better. The coverage gives you a natural, glowing look. I am out and will be getting more :)

I love love love this product!! It is the BEST foundation ever!! I've been looking for a sheer foundation that would be light and pleasant in touch forever and now I found it. I wished i had given it a try long time ago so I would have saved up all the money wasted looking for this HG foundation. It gives a very sheer coverage which I love and also gives this dewy finish without the oily look. I like to blend it with my fingers which in my opinion is the best way to apply. It dries quite quickly once applied. It is very expensive (in fact I paid £41 for mine, the most I ever spent on a foundation!!) but I think it is well worth the money and the 50mL bottle should last me like a year. I also wished they would make a pump for it and maybe a plastic bottle cuz the glass one is way heavy and I can't keep it in my make up bag cuz I'm scared it would spill leaving a horrible mess everywhere.UPDATE: Though I loved it, I had to throw it away. The consistency went funny after a while.

FANTASTIC SKIN IN A BOTTLE!!!!! I have dark olive-y skin (NC 50) and this made my skin look naturally flawless! I like to pair this up with MUFE full cover concealer for extra coverage where i need it and my skin looks like there is NOTHING on it! This is definitely one of the best foundations on the market. It has a very thin gel consistancy that glides on the skin and gives you a beautiful water-resistant glow (no shimmer or luminscent additives). It's mainly for those who want sheer to medium coverage. You may need 3 layers to get medium coverage. I believe oily skins can wear this as well, you may need an oil absorbing powder over it though.When I first purchased this, I wore it on a summer date night and my boyfriend couldn't stop commenting on how gorgeous and youthful I looked! I got compliments from others throughout the evening about how beautiful my skin was! None of the dozens of other foundations I've tried has ever performed like this one! Do I really have to say Holy Grail?

This is my first foundation ever. I really like how thin it is, it doesn't cover anything but does even out skin tone, and brighten my face. I like the fact that it doesnt feel like foundation on my face I have been avoiding using foundation for the reason that I can always feel it on my face,which I hate. and usually by the end of the day it floats on top of my skin, but this one does not. I dont like the price, but I got it with a $20 coupon from Sephora, so it was ok.I am hoping the bottle well last me a while at which point I will have received another coupon from Sephora that will allow me to purchase it at a lower price (fingers crossed!)Normally I would use this all over the face and use a concealer to conceal any pimple/birth marks that has not been concealed by the foundation. It's not drying at all, which is really good for my dry cheeks. I like the finish and it looks like nothing on my face. HG!

The stars aligned perfectly and this product somehow landed in my uber-grateful mitts. I have been searching (unsuccessfully) for my HG foundation and I've now found it in this product. I was able to use my sephora coupon and get this for $25 after tax, but I would've gladly paid the $38 (that's saying a lot since I'm broke as a joke at the moment). Down to business: I've read a lot of reviews that talk about the scent....I'm absolutely in love with it. It reminds me of a beautiful powder puff set that my grandmother had ages ago, a scent I haven't smelled since I was a child but I immediately recognized it once I smelled the foundation. I can definitely see where others might not like it, but for me it brings back good memories in waves, so I am in love. Something else to love about this, it works wonders on my crazy dry skin. I get dry patches on my cheeks and forehead that soak up foundations and turn into flake city, but this is so rich and creamy and perfect for my skin. I constantly touch my face when I wear it because I can't believe how much moisture my face retains throughout the day.Earlier this year I had a crazy bout of adult onset acne, and it lasted months. I picked and picked (yes I know I shouldn't) and as a result, I've been left with a lot of red scarring. I was worried about this covering it up, but it builds beautifully and does the job. The only thing I could find wrong with this is it doesn't last ALL day, but as a reviewer below me said, I haven't found anything that does. I don't wear powder, so I'm sure that would certainly help.To make a long story short (too late), It just makes your face look perfect. Perfect color, perfect texture....just perfection. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation and I recommend that every dry-skinned gal give it a shot.
