If you are Having trouble finding your shade:
Use the Shade Finder on Sephoras website. It's under the MUFE page at the top (next to a small pc it says "shade finder" This takes you to the shade finder for thier HD product, but find your shade in that and then you will see at the bottom of the page other MUFE foundation options - hover over the small pic of the Mat Velvet and it will tell you your shade # in referance to the shade you picked for the HD.
If you are having trouble with oil and the product seperating:
I would try and oil controling primer befor you completly give up on this product. A primer will make your foundation much easier to apply and thier are different primers for individual skin problems. MUFE has several primers, evan a mattifying primer called 'All MAT'. But you can find other brands with oil controlling primers as well that may be cheaper to purchase.
I also use MAC prep+prime transpararent finishing powder to set my make up and it seems to control the shine for me. I only have to touch up just a bit on my nose around 5pm. I found this technique from this youtube review www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lkJaGRpIHQ
Hope this helps some reviewers.
Oh my ratings:
I love this so i gave it a 5 overall
Cost is high - It costs $34+tax so it is pricey
I gave the packaging a 3 becasue I have a feeling I will not be able to get all of the product out of it when I get near the end (hopefully I am wrong)
I forgot to add that I use the Target version of the BeautyBlender , its by Sonia Kus..... (I don't know how to spell it). It's about $10 and blends perfectly while using a much smaller amount than your fingers or a regular spong.
I LOVE THIS! my t zone is very oily, and i couldnt find any foundations that would give me a great coverage and keep my oil under control. This is trully the best.. It keeps my skin looking perfect, and when I start to get oily, it doesnt look nasty like it would normally, but it kind of glows in a nice way. Ive worn this for 5 hours without blotting... If it was cheaper, it would become my daily foundation.. but since its $34, and I cant get those here in Brazil, I just keep it for when I wanna look my best.
ps: if you have oily skin, dont mind the price, and you live near a sephora lol, THIS IS YOUR FOUNDATION
I will be fast and simple with my review since there are plenty of others. Just FYI: my skin is combination/break out prone and I wear 20 in this formula.
Pros: Feels very lightweight, nice finish, lasts pretty good on. No break outs.
Cons: can look chalky if not blended properly, medium ish coverage so if you have a break out you may still need concealer with it.
Over all I really like this foundation. I was going to try a matte Chanel one, but I got this instead after too many reports of breakouts for the Chanel and I am really glad I tried this. On thing is you want to use a make up remover or just wash really really well, because once on this foundation doesn't want to leave.
This is my favourite foundation! I have some scars and redness and this covers it right up! People often comment on how good my skin looks and think that I'm using a special moisturizer, but it's really the foundation! I sometimes have trouble finding the exact shade I need, but this one matches perfectly. The downside is that it comes in a squishy bottle, not a pump.
I need help with the color selection! I love this foundation but need help on the color match?
I am a 010 in Dior foundation, which is the lightest
a nw15 in mac foundation which always looks dark for my face, ( looks like i have a mask!)
What color should i get?
Between no.15 and no.20?
This is one of my favorite foundations i've tried so far. It works well with my oily skin and the shade is perfect for my medium yellow undertoned skin.I bought a bottle last year and i'm finally running low on it. I have lately been really liking to mix moisturizer with this product for a lighter finish. A bad thing about the packaging is the color of the case, it's hard to tell how much product you have left. The thing about this brand though, is that whether or not they test on animals is unknown, if I found out they do, that would really suck because their products are amazing.
Love it! this is a great foundation for combination to oily skin. The texture is smooth and easy to blend. I can use with both foundation brush and my finger and it goes on very nicely on my skin. A BA at Sephora was so helpful. She helped me pick the right shade. This foundation stays all day. I have tried many foundations which claimed that it's oil-free. They disappeared after 4 hours of wearing them. But, MUFE is not. I only give 4 stars because I still have extremely oily face at the end of the day. I'm not sure is that only me. I have extremely oily skin. Maybe it won't be the same to others. Just my guess! Anyway, I still like it and will buy again.
This goes on beautifully--hence the 3 stars but for me was highly ACNEGENIC. I was breaking out by the end of the day
I don't like this foundation. The coverage is wonderful, and I love that it's free and doesn't break me out - but really, that's about it. The colour options / matches aren't so great, and it has an orange tinge on my pale skin - something you do NOT expect from such an expensive foundation. also, this foundation completely SITS on the skin, which makes it look SO obvious and unnatural - even after really buffing it in. I use a 187 to apply and it's not enough. and one of the worst things about it is how it settles into fine lines! I am EIGHTEEN! I don't HAVE wrinkles! but throughout the day just from talking and you know - your face moves as you talk, and the foundation settles into those areas! by the end of the day the foundation DOES look really good, except I always have a line of buildup on my forehead and around the nose! So if it does that on me, someone older is not going to love this. OVERALL: this foundation is COMPLETELY not worth the price.
When the sales associate at Sephora put this on me I loved it. I liked the coverage and the finish...and even the color in the store. The next morning I applied it and liked it but a couple of hours late when I was in the natural light I looked extremely orange! I went inside to see if it looked that way inside and sure enough I had turned orange I thought I would try to apply it differently and see if that helped any..nope not at all. I attempted to use it for a couple of days...the same thing happened each day...beautiful in the morning perfectly matched my skin tone a couple hours later (no matter what kind of lighting) I was orange. It seemed to oxidize really quickly on me.
I would suggest getting a sample of this before purchasing a full bottle. Try it out for a day or at least a couple of hours to see if it turns on your skin.
