I totally get that Make Up For Ever is an amazing brand although I wouldn’t say that the range is without its disappointments – for me anyway.
I purchased the Face and Body Foundation because I had this weird idea that I’d get a beach holiday this year. I can keep wishing. So I just had to have a waterproof foundation, which is what MUFE’s base is.
This was the haul I made in its entirety by the way – everything here is waterproof (I will review the concealer and aqua creams later):
This waterproof, ultra-light, water-based gel contains no emulsifiers and provides a totally natural, satin finish. Ideal for normal skin-types as well as for fine lines and large pores. Gives skin a uniform tone without accentuating imperfections
Coming in a glass jar, Make Up For Ever’s Face and Body Liquid Make Up gives you 50ml for £27. Its a light texture – its almost a bit jelly like, gives a sheer but buildable coverage and is….waterproof!
I know, I keep going on about it….
I was particularly interested in this because I have MAC’s Face and Body Foundation which is also very sheer. I like MAC’s offering but its no where near enough coverage for my face – works nicely for other parts of the body though, say if you are having photos taken and want completely even skin.
Here is the texture of the foundation – its like jelly:
I got Honey Beige – no 34. I guessed my shade and I got lucky! This is great for my NC35-40 skintone and its got a yellow base to it. Its so sheer anyway, that you can work with it.
Here it is on my skin – I though I’d used too much because a big lump of jelly foundation fell out bit it was fine – it sinks in super quickly and dries on the skin leaving a soft, semi matte finish on me.
It was sheer. I dabbed on a second light layer and voila – my skin looked great. Natural and quite real – not flawless, but real. A great every day and summer foundation, no doubt.
On my face – you can see there is redness and I am guessing some concealer would sort out out properly but we are talking about something that is very quick to use and fresh.
I like it a lot! I am drowning under foundations here, but this one is quite special – a unique texture, light, feels kind on the skin and will last all day. Will be my summer foundation for surez.
