I have this in ivory (20). I have very fair, dry skin, rosacea and large pores. This foundation works well with my skin. I like the texture (light) and coverage (light, but buildable).

I used to use this years ago, I don't think they changed the formula I liked it back then, it was very natural looking and covered well but I remember that it clogged my pores badly.

This foundation is pretty good. The coverage is minimal, which I prefer for a casual "everyday" foundation. It smooths out my skin tone nicely and does not sink into any pores. It leaves a very glowy finish, it almost borderline looks oily, but nothing a little bit of powder cannot fix. I dust on Cargo HD powder over this and am left with a nice glowy look. It lasts all day and does not oxidize on me. The only reason I said I would not buy this again is because I always like trying new foundations.

I LOVE this foundation. I have used soooo many different foundations it's insane considering i'm only 16. I use this over primer and set it with Bare Minerals... MY SKIN LOOKS FLAWLESS. I have been searching for these results for 3 years. I highly recommend this product!
I gave the packaging a 2 because I don't really like the bottle. It would be way better with a pump.
I really like the formula of it though! It is very runny at first, but after about 5 seconds of blending it starts to thicken and cover.
ALSO- the formula lightens after you rub it in, so do a makeup test at the store. If you can't, buy the bottle that looks 2 shades darker then your skin.

LOL what is everyone talking about? Am I applying this wrong? Do I need a better setting powder?? I'm NC30, and #32 matches me well. Minorly acne-prone but have combination/oily skin. But applying this is SO difficult for me. Sponges give me no coverage and brushes leave it streaky. Fingers are messy and take a good five to ten minutes for me to blend the foundation in. The best results have been with Mac's 187 brush, which I usually use for blush. Anyways, I'm oily as heck right now as I'm writing this. I set it with Maybelline's matte powder, maybe I should use another blotting powder? The foundation cakes up and fades away, even though it supposedly has amazing staying power. Not only that, but I have to work sooo hard to get this looking good. Plus concealer under the eyes since the coverage is shoddy. I can see people with dry skin liking this... perhaps. I mean, I had some dry skin one day from benzoxyl peroxide and thought, "Hey, this is dewey! I'll put it on with my moisturizer!"...it ended up showing flakes which weren't there before AND made me oily...hahaa sooo attractive. I locked myself in my bathroom to get it off. ON THE CONTRARY... like the pump (which is new) and the fact that it doesn't break me out. That's about it.
Look, I'm upset to spend $47 on foundation ($42 cdn plus taxes) and have my foundation look gross by the end of the day. Revlon colorstay works way better in my opinion, so I ordered Golden Beige on ebay (the color isn't available in Canada) for TEN dollars! Ugh, I'll keep trying to work with MUFE until it comes, but I really feel like taking it back. It just isn't working for me. Will update if it does.

My new favorite foundation. I'm an NC20 and got this in shade 20. For reference I have combo, acne-prone skin with acne scars and milia.

The shade looks dark in the bottle but it's rather forgiving and blends in seamlessly though it's a bit too neutral and beige--my only criticism of MUFE is that they assume that if you're paler than NC20, then you have pink undertones. So very fair skinned yellow toned ladies might not find a match, but I suggest just trying the paler shades anyway, because as I said, it's pretty forgiving. Nevertheless, 20 is good match and photographs beautifully (would be great for brides).

Coverage is light but buildable to medium with the second layer and gives natural looking coverage over my scars. It definitely covers them really well! It melds with the skin because of the water-gel texture and is probably one of the most natural foundations I've tried. The finish is dewy and takes a while to dry--might be too dewy/oily looking for some, and I set with loose powder.

I suggest using a primer if you have big pores though. I found that it settled a bit in the pores on my nose without it. Other than that, the lasting power was also pretty good, didn't turn orange, and didn't make me excessively oily. I've tried applying with my SK skunk brush, but my preferred method is applying with fingers for the most coverage. Really nice for summer! So far so good, I will update if I change my mind.

It's only been a few days since I purchased this but so far I'm REALLY impressed. I hated MUFE's HD foundation, overpriced for what it did, but this stuff has gotten such good reviews so I went back to Sephora and bought this in shade 32.


My one and only gripe is the bottle, like everyone has mentioned. I suspect they have it like this because of the consistency of the liquid, however, which is very unique. When you shake it, and when you initially dispense it on your hand, it'll seem very watery. Once you rub it on your face, it seems to... thicken? into a lotion-like texture. Not something bad for me, though. It does leave behind a dewy finish, so fellow oily-skin people, have your setting powder and everyday blotting powder ready.


I apply it over Monistat's powder-gel as primer, and it'll stay put all day. EXACTLY the same as when I first applied it, fresh and never ever cakey. That's never happened with my foundation before. Even when I blot with powder, the texture or the finish doesn't alter. Right now I'm just using my fingers to apply but I'll use a brush soon, and see if the results are the same. Additionally, shade 32 is pretty much a perfect match for my skin. My face and neck/chest area are not different shades for once! It is light coverage, so I apply concealer/green corrector for redness beforehand where I need it.


If I get bad results from this in the future, I'll update, but so far I can see no downside. Hands down best foundation I've come across.

After reading some reviews on here I figured I'd check this one out. I was looking for a foundation that was a bit more sheer than my Paula's Choice "All Bases Covered" since my skin has cleared up considerably.
I went to Sephora because 1) I wanted to try it on first and 2) I wasn't sure what shade I'd need. At first I thought it might be too sheer so I tried the next level of coverage up which was too heavy. Anyway, I found my shade with some help and tried it out the next morning.

PROS:
1) It blends beautifully into your skin.
2) Coverage is buildable without looking cakey!
3) It's very lightweight and doesn't feel like you're wearing makeup.
4) Lots of compliments on how "glowing" my skin is - this leaves you with a soft dewey finish and doesn't look like you even have makeup on. I have dry skin, so it's great; may not be suited for people with oily skin...?

CONS:
1) Very heavily perfumed. They could totally do without that.
2) I gave the packaging a 2 because of it's consistency. It would be so much better suited to either a pump or a squeezable tube because of it's jelly-ness. (Yes, that's a word in my world.)
3) Takes a little practice getting used to it.

I found the best way to apply it is by stippling it all over your face with an application sponge, letting it dry, and adding more where needed. Overall I really like it and will buy it again.

This is an amazing foundation, and even though it's a bit pricey it's worth the money! The consistancy is almost jelly like an it needs to be shaken before appliesd. The coverage is pretty sheer and I would describe it as inbetween a tm and a foundation. The coverage is very buildable though and more than one layer can be applied without it looking cakey and too thick. Once the product is applied it blends effortlessly into your skin and I almost get a cooling sensation when I first apply it. The only downfall is that the packaging does not have a pump, so you have to pour it out. It is very long lasting which makes it my ideal summer foundation. It is also water resistant, but I have yet to wear it in the water. However, it does had very little transer once applied which is a huge plus because no one wants makeup all over clothes. If your on the lookout for a summer foundation make sure you give this one a look.

wow, amazing product! this is the lightest, most skin-like foundation i have ever used! i dont like heavy foundations (i am looking at u EL DW!) but i do not have perfect skin, so i still need some coverage to cover my rosacea and some sun spots. This does the job, without looking fake, like i have perfect, healthy skin! :D The other foundations that claim that its like "second skin" looked too fake on me.
however, this does give me shiny t-zone by the end of the day if i use it alone, but mac blot powder would do the job easily :)

I use #32, and it is a PERFECT match! i have used #20, but was too light for my liking.
the list of foundations i have used are: bobbi brown skin foundation in beige #3, armani LSF#5(too fake, didnt like it), dior airflash#200(use it for winter), bobbi brown luminous#2.5(too shiny, not as long lasting), bobbi brown long lasting#3 (made my skin look patchy and dull) revlon colorstay in buff(not bad for the price, u get what u pay for- wouldnt buy this if it was more expensive than it is), mac sff nc25(exactly same to revlon colorstay but with better colors. however i hated it), guerlain extreme #02 and list goes on.....
This one easily beats them all (except for guerlain which is my other HG, i use this when i need more coverage, or want perfect polished look, go try this one too, it's a beautiful foundation) my close second would be bobbi brown skin foundation, but this one does ont last as long, nor its comfortable on my skin has mufe face&body! i love it!
