I only use this powder to set my foundation and have yet to try it on its own. I purchased it in Nude and it's pretty close to my NC25 skin. It goes on as medium coverage and it does look cakey when applied with a powder puff but tapping it on lightly with a brush its okay. I always use a setting spray after using this though just to remove any cakey-ness. It helps my foundation stay on all day.
Best shampoo and conditioner I've ever come across! I love this more than Joico Kpak (and this is a lot more affordable). I was recommended this after bleaching my hair from black to platinum blonde and Matrix really helped in the healing process of my hair. OF COURSE my hair was still damaged from all the bleach but it went from feeling like hay to something closer to normal hair and it kept the split ends AWAY. Overall LOVE this product and recommend it for dry, damaged hair!!
Primer/ Corrector -Shu Uemura - UV Underbase Mousse SPF 30+

Pros: It's lightweight, brightens my skin, has SPF 30, helps foundation to last a tag longer Cons: Accentuates dry patches on my skin, doesn't do much for enlarged pores, application is messy. It's not that this is a bad product, its a great sunscreen but not a great primer. Overall I wouldn't buy it again!
Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever - HD Microperfecting Primer

This primer is great coupled with MUFE's HD foundation! It feels light on the skin, moisturises, colour corrects and helps your foundation last a tad longer (HD foundation on its own already lasts pretty long). HOWEVER it does not do much for it terms of creating matte skin or filling pores so if you're looking for a primer in that area this is NOT for you! But if you're looking for a lightweight colour corrector this maybe pricey but I find other colour correcting primers that have good coverage enhance my dry patches whereas this one moisturise. Will definitely repurchase =)
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

This is definitely one of my favourite foundations, a go to on a night out! I'm around a NC25 and find the 120 a pretty good match. This foundation is medium to full coverage, it really covers all the redness on my cheeks, around my nose and mouth although I do need to reach for my concealer for any problematic blemishes. When I'm done applying, it really looks like a second skin and lasts ALL DAY (I always use primer, powder and setting spray). I'm surprised with all the bad reviews but my skin is more on the dry side with the occasional oily t-zone after a long day so maybe its not suited for those with really oily skin? =S
