I don't know if there's anything better but this is what I buy again and again. Decent coverage and it doesn't break me out. I use shade porcelain pink and it's almost light enough for me. I find it a little dark but it seems to settle after I apply and blend in pretty well. It doesn't completely cover redness but blends well enough to a porcelain like finish. I wear it over PC tinted moisturizer shade one. A compact lasts about 3 months for me.

I tried this when I was looking for a change from my MAC Studio Fix powder. My friend who is an ethie thought that the MAC was breaking me out. I went to Sephora and was color matched into shade 113. For reference I wear C2 or N4 in Studio Fix and the shade of the 113 is very similar to the C2.

My problems with this are many. First of all, it just is not long-wearing. Even on top of a primer, it is gone or blotchy within a few hours. I want a product I can apply in the morning and maybe touch up in the afternoon. Second of all, it seems to settle into my pores or lines and accentuate them. I've also noticed that it makes my skin a little itchy.

When I first put it on it can look good- very fine texture, slightly matte but satiny. But it doesn't last.

I've applied this with various brushes: kabui brush, foundation brush, and a Missha oval brush. In no case does it work any better.

I love it for a natural look!

At first, I didn´t know how to use it and it didn´t work for me with certain brushes or sponges and looked so flaky using it with a primer .

But one day, I tried it with my kabuki brush after applying my moisturizer SPF 15 facial sunscreen Triple performing lotion from Benefit and it worked! ( the dry way to apply it)

For a really satin finish on my skin , this is the wet way to apply it. I spray my face with Aven thermal spring water ( with or without moisturizer, it works better for me without mosturizer) and then I apply this make up in circular motion with a kabuki brush.In this way my skin looks flawless and believe me I ve got the worst skin in the world with big pores and combo skin ( shine in T zone , really dry in other areas).

It´s mineral oil free so it doesn´t block my pores as much as other powders or foundations and having combination skin , it reduces the shin and mattifies giving a bit of glowing in my skin. It´s lightweight and softens the appearence of fine lines. I am 35 and I can´t see as much my wrinkles!

0% silicons.Paraben free. Less talc than other powders. It doesnt look cackey at all ( my skin always looks orange with other make ups but not with this one) and it really works onto my dehydrated combination skin ( no shine at all for hours!).

If you want to cover spots, freckles, you can use the sponge included in the compact.Focus only on the pimple and not the surrounding area. After you are finished , you can blend out to your skin with the kabuki, but do not blend or touch the actual spot or whatever you want to hide.

My shade: 120 ( neutral ivory, natural)
Cons: no SPF sun protection

I like the lightness of this but it didn't really work for me. It seem to look a little orange on me :( And when I wore it I could really tell I had makeup on which is a bummer.

The coverage of this foundation is pretty light. It was hard to build this up to medium coverage no matter how much product I put on or what I used for application. I don't have a huge problem with this though since I use concealer anyway and I just wanted a foundation to even out my skin tone. The problem I do have, however, is how badly this foundation oxidizes. I'm between NC20 and NC25 and I was matched to shade 120. It looked fine at first but then two hours later, I looked in the mirror and saw how orange I was. Which annoyed me greatly because there is a no-refund policy for opened makeup products in Korea. Also, there is absolutely no oil control to this product. The MUA said this has good oil control like Duo Mat (which I originally wanted but Korea doesn't sell that product) but... no... it doesn't. Also, the compact itself feels very flimsy. The MUA even told me that the case breaks easily, so I get worried carrying it around.

I may repurchase it, but.. in two shades lighter.

My new favorite! Easy to apply, doesn't look 'powdery'. My skin has never looked better! A little miracle.

I have many acne scars that are a bit faded. I am always looking for a foundation that covers my scars. You can build up coverage with this product but I can not say that it completely covers up my scars (about 90% by itself). I do need to some sort of concealer with this to finish the job. HOWEVER, this is great on my acne-prone skin. It gives somewhat of a light weight feel to it and does create a smooth, even skin texture with a kick of a natural look. I apply it using a kabuki brush instead of the sponge they provide. It also helps to apply it on clean and moisturized skin. I do find myself having to re-apply powder a couple times throughout the day because it does not stay on for long.

This MUFE powder has good coverage but please don't use it if you have Oily skin. It made me so oily within the first hour of applying it. The day just started and I already got so oily. Other than that it'll probably be ok if you have normal skin thats not oily. Expensive(SGD 69) and it's nothing amazing. Definitely don't recommend. You could probably find a cheaper alternative. Dont waste your money.

So no it doesn't last "For Ever" or even for a decent time.

I have to exchange it twice . my skin tone matches between 118 Neutral Beige and 120 Neutral Ivory. 125 & 118 Beige color made my face so yellow after it oxidizes. I never thought I have Ivory tone. I decided to get 117 finally. Color will turn yellow which perfectly matches my actual skin tone.

I really like this! It's a very quick way to even out your skin and the colour selection is pretty good. One lippie off though because there is so much fallout and it's so powdery and goes all over the place, I feel like I'm wasting a lot of product.
