Review of Make Up For Ever Yours by Make Up For Ever Fond de Teint Fluide / Liquid Foundation by AliceHolst
Woo-hoo! This is so great: great coverage, great finish, great price!
Yours by Make Up For Ever is MUFE's diffusion line that is available in select supermarket and department stores in France. It is super-inexpensive and very, very good quality.
The Liquid Foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle with one of those annoying "applicators" in the cap that extends down into the foundation. The bottle has a nice heavy weight to it that unfortunately prevents me from bringing it with me when I go traveling (I'm also worried about the bottle shattering).
The liquid is not-too-thick, not-too-light, and spreads smoothly over the skin. It blends easily (it takes a few minutes to set, but isn't at all greasy; it seems to melt into the skin) and has a wonderful, glow-y (but not shimmery or iridescent) finish that LASTS all day and feels COMFORTABLE. Excellent coverage well hides all my minor -- and goes a long way towards minimising any not-so-minor -- flaws.
The shade ("China") is nice and light. In an ideal world it would be a hair lighter, but the formulation is very forgiving. PPPs in France, check this out!
me: *extremely* fair with cool undertones; grey eyes, dark blonde hair;
extremely dry, sensitive skin with random spots
