Out of all the fabulous makeup brands in the world, no other competes with Makeup Forever when it comes to top notch foundations.
Recently I have been wanting a lighter coverage, lightweight foundation to wear on an everyday basis, but it’s been a challenge finding that perfect match.
On a night on YouTube binging (let’s be real, that’s almost every night), I watched one of my all time fave’s, KathleenLights rave about what she claimed to be her go-to foundation: the Makeup Forever Face and Body. To be honest, I hadn’t heard much about this product. Sure, I’d heard of the brand and their incredibly popular HD Foundation, but not this. After hearing Kathleen talk about the perks and downfalls (which were few), I decided to try it out for myself.
After testing it out for about two months, I’ve gathered my thoughts and thought I would share.
Let’s start off with packaging. At $43 a pop, it would have been a crime if this foundation lacked a durable glass bottle and a pump. Thank the makeup lords they included these key features in this packaging. Along with being a high quality bottle, this product actually exceeds the average foundation in terms of amount. At 1.69 fl oz, the MUFE Face and Body Foundation has over 50% more product than your average foundation (which tend to come in 1fl oz bottles). That however, is probably for a reason…
The reason being that this is an incredibly sheer foundation, that would require far more product to build coverage than the average medium coverage foundation. This has a water based gel formulation that is meant, not to cover imperfections, but to even out the skin tone.
Never have I used any other product, full coverage or light coverage, that does the same thing. In application, you can still see your own skin (along with its blemishes) underneath, but this foundation almost blurs the skin and pores to give you an airbrushed look. It completely diminishes the look of pores and leaves you with a natural to satin finish. Essentially, this gives the best skin day you’ll ever have.
That being said, in order to get the fullest coverage possible from the MUFE Face and Body Foundation, I highly recommend using a brush in application rather than a sponge. Because this foundation is essentially colored water, if you attempted to use a sponge, it would simply absorb right up and leave no color payoff.
Moving onto the only negative on this product: The shade range.
I am in the shade Pink Porcelain, which is the lightest shade in the range, and it isn’t quite pale enough. However, I will point out that I highly doubt there are many people out there who are more ghostly than I. But other than the fact that I wish they included one more pale shade, the range is actually pretty incredible and I believe pretty much anybody could find a fit for them.
There you have it, the newest addition to my overflowing foundation drawer.
