I've tried this in literally every shade that comes remotely close to my skin color and NOTHING matches. Either there's a geisha thing going on or I'm orange. There seems to be no in between. I don't like this foundation enough to try mixing anything, unfortunately, or I'd go that route. There ARE a lot of color choices, so hopefully you'll have better luck finding one if you decide to try this. It applies nicely, and offers kind of a dewy finish... I say kind of, because something struck me as being a little off about it. It was almost plasticky. I love a dewy finish, but this one was just a little weird and shiny or something. I don't know. I just didn't really like the finish on my skin. It does cover pretty well, but I'm not convinced that it's very buildable.

There are some major issues with this foundation, though. The biggest one is the lack of staying power. Obviously, it doesn't work very well with my skin type, since it is literally sliding off and caking after one to two hours. More than three hours and it has disappeared from my t-zone entirely and my entire face feels unbelievably disgusting. I've tried this at least five separate times and every time it seems to get worse. I've tried with moisturizer, without moisturizer, with primer and without. It just doesn't seem to matter. In fact it might even be worse with a primer. Additionally, it broke me out BADLY on my chin. I haven't had a breakout like this in a year or more...

It's definitely a one-star product for me. Very disappointing since it seems to work so well for other people, but I guess I'll keep looking.

I had really high hopes for this foundation, and was really excited to try it. After hearing all the hype and having it recommended to me at my local Sephora, I finally decided to give into the fact that it was 40 dollars to have a foundation that wasn't drugstore and promised flawless, "HD" like skin. I was completely disappointed. I have very fair/porcelain skin with yellow undertones and the lightest shade offered 110 was way too pink based, despite the fact that my Sephora consultant matched me to it... I found that it enhanced the red undertones in my skin, and not only that, it was very drying and gave a plastic, tight effect, it was weird. It also didn't have enough coverage and agin seemed to enhance the redness of my blemishes instead of covering them up. That is the last time I will buy a non-drugstore foundation.

I REALLY wanted to love this. It just doesn't work on my skin. I have large pores and a REALLY oily T Zone. Even with primer, this just doesn't hold up. It sinks into my pores and into fine lines. My search continues!

I love this foundation! A friend recommended it and I'm so glad she did. I was using MAC face and body foundation before, but I found that it was super wet and slick after applying, even after waiting awhile. My setting powder would get all gooey and it just didn't look quite right. I love this MUFE foundation because it's still light and almost fluffy in it's application. Does not feel cakey at all, but still hides imperfections well. I dust some mineral powder on top to complete the look. Love it!

I am yet another person who is in LOVE with this foundation! First of all: PUMP! I love the pump! It's so silly for companies to make foundations without pumps.
I apply this with my Sigma F82 and I love the flawless finish it gives me. I'm in the color 110 and it matches like a dream. I am someone with an uneven skin tone and a fair amount of blemishes (probably due to my non-existant skin care routine xD) and it covers everything very well, I just use a bit of under eye concealer since my brush won't fit under my eye without stabbing it.
I orignally bought this because my Matte Velvet + was just too drying for the winter time, but I think I actually might love this foundation more!
I have decently dry skin and it doesn't really dry me out or flake, which is good. I use it with a powder (and even if I don't) it lasts all day and has minimal transferring. I will definately repurchase again and again.

EDIT: After about 2 weeks of use I have noticed my skin breaking out like CRAZY..and it's a little itchy so I'm unsure what is really going on since I'm not allergic to virtually anything. I'm going to keep using the foundation though to see what happens when I up my skincare.

Love this product, goes on smooth, texture is rich and there are so many shades to choose from you will find a match! It's good to use a finishing powder because if you have oily skin it'll show. So use a finishing powder and you'll look flawless.

Although I will never use this foundation in my usual make up routine anymore but it is still the best liquid foundation in my make up case. As a make up artist, I would appreciate the great work this foundation does on almost every type of skin. It is great to wear it for photo shooting. I bet my opinion would be appreciated by the others who wear this foundation. It covers flaws perfectly and you will definitely look great in the photos. It also provides well radiance and natural look. However, it may be a little bit heavy for day make up even if only a small amount is applied on the skin. The coverage is buildable, from medium to medium-full. It may be harder to cover redness. It can be a little bit drying so dry skin babies may wanna consider wearing a hydrating make up base before applying this foundation. The price is similar to the other branded liquid foundations. It is about RM135. A little goes a long way so I guess this can last for at least 5 months if without using too much everyday. It is quite long lasting but the oil absorbing effect isn't well appreciated. It may melt a little bit on oilier skin after a few hours. It allows your eye make up (even smokey eyes) to last much longer. It is not advisable to touch your skin when you are wearing this foundation as this may rub off the foundation a little bit. It comes in 30ml pump packaging so I consider this is well designed and the shade range starts from #107, the very deep pink undertones (I am wearing #115, however it is still a little bit darker than my skin since my skin is pale pink undertone) to the deepest shade with orange undertone (for Negro).
