Good Day, mateys!
Today I wanted to share with you a quick tutorial using, and review of the Make Up For Ever HD product range. I was sent these from the company and I showed all the goodies MUFE sent to me in my last Unboxing video here - there was a ton of great stuff in there, I'm really excited to really try out everything else too!
I was immediately drawn to the HD foundation, the primer, and the setting powder because I have heard a lot of hype surrounding these products. Watch my video below to see how I apply these products and my thoughts on them!
Aaaand if you're too short on time for that, here's a quick Pros and Cons list:
- The foundation is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. I honestly can't feel that I'm wearing a bunch of products on my face, which is always nice.
- Buildable coverage means you can use as little or as much as you like, depending how much coverage you need (see my Con on this later)
- I love the setting powder - it looks and feels invisible on the skin but does a good job of setting the foundation and mattifying oily areas. Also great to use on concealer under the eyes, and I will use this with other foundations too.
- These products don't contain sunscreen so they would be ok to use under flash photography (meaning no white flashback on the skin)
- Good for oily and combination skin as well
- To me the foundation just doesn't have enough coverage. It almost goes on sheer and I needed several applications to get a decent coverage. I don't have major problem skin but I mainly use foundation to even out my skintone on blotchy areas - it really didn't do that great of a job for this. To me, this just isn't enough coverage in an HD setting when a camera is a few inches from your face.
- The primer didn't wow me, but then, I rarely use primers. It wasn't a bad primer per se, but I didn't really see a noticeable difference here. Probably skippable.
I would recommend this foundation to people with combination or oily skin who are looking for something very lightweight that has buildable coverage. The first application is semi-sheer, so you are flexible in how much you want to apply for more coverage. If you have a lot of discoloration in your face, however, and you're looking for something to cover it in one go, this probably isn't it. I did really enjoy the setting powder though.
