Make Up For Ever HD Foundation review.

I'm back! Finally I can settle back into blogging regularly. I have recently moved into my house that I bought with my boyfriend. We haven't had any internet since we moved in, hence the no blogging.

Anyway, today I have a review (as the title says) on the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation.

I bought this while I was in America at the end of 2010 from Sephora. I was matched with the colour "117 Marble" - the 4th lightest shade. Once I left the store, it actually looked to be a little too dark for my pale skin which is why I never really gave it a chance. I did use it a few times and didn't particularly like it - I felt like it didn't enough coverage as I usually wear full coverage foundations and I still felt it was a little too dark for my skin tone.

A year on, it was still sitting in my makeup collection so I decided to give it another chance because everyone always raves about how amazing this foundation is - that's the whole reason I bought it in the first place. To my surprise I loved it! It seems to match my complexion perfectly. I have taken a few photos (see below) to show you what it looks like on my skin.

Note: the photos of my skin/face are UN-EDITED - my worst nightmare! haha.




Also note: I am wearing a little bit of MAC MSF Natural over the top as I was getting ready for the day and only decided to take the pictures after I had done my powder - no concealer was used at all.

"HD Invisible Cover Foundation
What it is:
An oil-free medium-to-full-coverage liquid foundation that covers skin imperfections flawlessly while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life.


What it does:
This long-wearing foundation creates a soft-focus effect, which is designed to meet the coverage concerns of those in the spotlight. It leaves your complexion with such a flawless finish, it can withstand bright or harsh lighting."


The above quotes were taken directly off the Sephora website.

I would say this foundation is a medium coverage although it feels quite light on the skin. I am used to wearing more full coverage foundations like Revlon Colorstay. This MUFE foundation definitely feels a lot nicer on my skin for everyday wear.
I wouldn't say it is "invisible" but as you can tell by the photos, it really does do an amazing job at concealing flaws without looking like you are wearing a lot of makeup.

I also love the packaging of this foundation, I'm always a fan of a foundation that comes with a pump!

The only con I have noticed is if I have been touching my face or for some reason been resting my hand on my chin/side of my face while sitting at my desk (I don't do that consciously) it does come off easily.

All in all, this foundation is very good and I would recommend it to anyone with any skin type.


 Have you tried this foundation? If so, do you think it's as great as I do?

    1. Haha that's okay. I have also been using the Healthy Mix by Bourjois recently (trying to get away from the heavy foundations) but I don't really like it that much...
