I love Make Up For Ever's foundations, they are on the pricer side, this one retails for $40US/$46CAD, but I've been impressed with every single one that I've tried. I really took the time to learn this product, how to use it and best apply it. I had trouble with it at first, the application was tricky for me. I normally don't have this problem but, this foundation is so pigmented and covers so much that I found that I always put on too much and had a bit of a mask-like canvas on, it didn't look bad, just not what I am used to. You can sheer out any foundation, but with this one, I tend to pump out too much and I feel bad because this stuff is like liquid gold that I don't want to waste it.
I have this in the shade 117, which is a Marble, for light skin with yellow undertones. I could of probably gone with the shade down, 115, but that one has pink undertones and I prefer yellow for my skin. If you wear MAC NC15, this colour is a perfect match. MUFE HD comes in 25 shades, there is hopefully a shade for everyone, which is great (don't you hate when companies don't carry your right colour match? happens to me too often). I would suggest getting colourmatched at your Sephora, and get a sample, try it out, then buy it. it comes in perfect packaging too, plastic packaging (great for travel) and a great pump. To take a look at swatches, check out Karlasugar's page, swatches here, here and here.
The consistency is lightweight, but very pigmented, like very very, I poured out what seems like a tiny bit, but once you blend it out holy batman, you get a lot! Which makes me think this bottle is going to last me forever. I use one pump for my entire face. This is medium-full coverage for sure, the kind of coverage that I think most people desire in a foundation. I've tried applying it many different ways, MAC 187 or any stippling brush works well (lighter coverage) if you want to take the time, I think that's the best method. If you like quicker application (more coverage), a flat top works well too (like ELF's Studio Powder brush or Sigma F80), but I have to be careful with this cause it tends to pack on too much and my skin likes to absorb the product and it can look cakey.
Here it is blended in, it's a pretty darn good match for me. The coverage is amazing. I do think that you need well moisturized skin to wear this though. I make sure I use a primer with it, that way it applies as smooth as possible. For those with dry skin, I would definitely suggest this over Mat Velvet + (way too drying), but I still prefer MUFE Face and Body over this, the finish is more natural and I like how it sits on my skin more. I can see MUFE HD working very well for those with normal-combo skin though.
For those looking for a flawless coverage foundation, if you are going to be on tv or taking lots of photographs, this is the foundation for you. I would totally recommend it and if applied well on smooth skin, it can look marvelous. If you are fed up with foundations not working for you, not giving the right coverage or colour match, definitely try this out.
