Review of Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation by ubaydah
I began using MUFE F&B around 3 years ago. I have true yellow based skin. i used 32 but also own a shade deeper to mix in sometimes when i'm darker. I use 32 even though its lighter on my skin because this sets to be the exact same colour as my skin. theres a plus right there since thats pretty rare.
to me, this foundation is pretty awesome. if your considering getting it, i would say get it. i believe no matter your skin type, you could find a way to make this foundation work alright for you. maybe not perfect but i doubt you'd regret it.
my skins pretty strange like most skin. its dry and sensitive, and has a tendency to become flaky. so i moisturize like crazy. but on a normal 8 hour work day, by the end i'm a little dewey. yet still tight. yeah, it sucks. so i'm very picky.
this foundation is sheer and jelly like. the nozzle clogs easily so i gave the packaging a 3. its also pretty heavy. i would say even though its sheer--if you have very heavily scarred skin, go for it. i think you could either layer slightly more over the pigmentation, or if the scarring is dark, then use a concealer.
though ive used it with other methods, for me the best and most recent routine is to sheer it out with sunscreen (shiseido) and apply it under the eyes, the nose, a little to the forehead and around the mouth, and just blend it out. this would be over suncreen which is also over serum. this works well but i find at the end of the day, it does separate around nose and mouth. it cracks and becomes slightly cakey looking. after the initial 10 minute oxidization (when first putting it on i look a little ghostly) it oxidizes again at the end of the day but not an orange, sickly, oompa loompa oxidization but a healthy normal oxidization. hence, i would suggest getting a shade lighter. expecially if foundations tend to oxidize on you. so the oxidization i can live with but NOT the cakiness.
sheering this out with a serum i find looks best. it helps it look matte and smooth for longer. the reason why i dont do this is because serums are pricey and i can't afford to do this everyday.
setting with a loose powder ( i used mac translucent powder to set) i find does not make matters better. i feel like the powder sucks the foundation up and makes you look cakier. this happened even when i tried it after the initial application and when trying to blur out some cakiness late in the day.
blotting sheets, do work though. i find they help make things look a little fresher with this foundation but not the best solution.
if you have dry skin, then rejoice, because this has neverr made my flaky spots look flakier. everything you are reading below is true. it looks like skin but fresh and dewy skin. but i find what it does around my mouth and nose by the end of the day a little gross. maybe you couldn't see it if you were standing a few feet in front of me, but up closer, in better light people could see it for sure. i would repurchase but am still on the search for the HG. dont know if it exists:s
