I thought I had found my HG liquid foundation quite a while ago.
I really love Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It’s lightweight, it covers well, and Sand is almost a perfect match for my skintone. But my head has been turned by another liquid foundation, MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about my undying love for MUFE Ultra HD Stick Foundation.
It’s still my favorite for everyday and for the colder weather because
- it’s so darn fast to apply and blend in
- it acts as foundation and concealer in one
- the stick form is heavier than liquid.
As much as I love the Stick Foundation, I was eager to try the liquid version of Ultra HD.
A few years ago, an SA at Sephora recommended MUFE Mat Velvet+ for me, and it really was not the right foundation for this dry-skinned gal. I don’t need matte anything! So I was happy when the MUFE Ultra HD liquid foundation came my way.
Here’s how the liquid MUFE Ultra HD Foundation is described: “Developed specifically for the film and TV industry’s most advanced technology, Ultra HD Liquid Foundation creates a naturally flawless complexion—on and off camera. Completely invisible under the latest, super-focused 4k lens, this revolutionary foundation features uniquely-coated pigments that provide medium to buildable coverage with an even lighter weight, second-skin texture that looks just like skin.”
Plus it’s great for wearing in photographs!
Although MUFE says it provides medium to buildable coverage, if I dab just a bit more on my two most visible dark spots, they are covered well enough that I don’t have to bother with concealer. I like to apply this foundation with either a blending sponge or a flat kabuki brush.
What I love about this foundation is that it suits my older and drier skin. The formula has hyaluronic spheres suspended throughout, and it feels comfortable to wear on my dry skin. Also it doesn’t seem to sink into my wrinkles as much, though I wear it over primer most but not all of the time.
Another thing that’s great about MUFE Ultra HD Foundation is that it comes in 40 shades! That’s right, 40. There’s gotta be a match for almost everyone with that many shades. There are quite a few pale options and deep options with about a million in between, with yellow, pink and neutral undertones. I’m wearing shade 115=R230 Ivory. That’s the same shade that I wear in the stick foundation.
I’m wearing one light layer. #nofilter
If I’m going someplace, I’ll put on a little more to cover the dark spots on my nose. But overall, I think it’s an excellent match for my skin now, at the end of winter. We’ll see how it looks once I start spending more time outdoors. In the meantime, I keep reaching for this terrific, lightweight but hydrating foundation. Oh yes, it doesn’t appear to have any SPF, so wearing sunscreen is a necessity.
MAKE UP FOR EVER UltraHD Foundation comes in a heavy plastic pump bottle. A little goes a long way. $43 for 1 fl. oz./30 ml. Sold at Sephora, Ulta Beauty, the MAKE UP FOR EVER website, and other fine retailers. It will last me a loooooong time.
Have you tried MUFE UltraHD Foundation? If so, what did you think?
