Foundation Overview - Make Up For Ever (MUFE) HD Invisible Cover Foundation
This foundation creates a soft-focus effect, which is designed to meet the coverage concerns of those in the spotlight. It leaves your complexion with such a flawless finish, it can withstand bright or harsh lighting.
Size: 1.01 oz.
My Skin Background
I have normal/oily skin with larger pores on my cheeks and nose. I have light freckles across my nose and a sprinkling on my cheeks as well. I have a warm undertone (yellow) and relatively even skintone. I don't have issues with acne or red spots so I don't need much coverage.
This costs $40 for 1.01 oz. This is within the range of higher end foundations and I'm sure the HD label factors in quite a bit here. No issues for me here because quite frankly if you are going high end for foundation then this price is expected.
The foundation comes in a hard plastic rounded bottle with a built in pump. This is ideal since it's more sanitary than an open bottle plus you have more control over how much product you dispense. Plus since it's built in you don't have to spend extra dollars on a separate pump. I do prefer glass for foundations just because it extends shelf life but this is hardened plastic so it's as close as you can get to glass minus the breakage risk.
This bottle is not completely transparent even though it appears to be so guessing when you need a refill takes some eyeballing and squinting to figure out how product remains.
This foundation is available in 25 shades at Sephora and Make Up For Ever. The colors cover a great range of skintones from very light to deep with pink, beige, olive and yellow undertones. It is best to get matched to the correct shade in person but you can check out Temptalia's Foundation Matrix for what others have found to match. I'm shade 173 - MAC NC45 for reference.
Make Up For Ever is available in the US at Sephora, Sephora.com and The Make Up For Ever boutiques in NYC
Medium coverage. I don't get full coverage from this foundation since it is a lightweight and thinner formula. It allows the skin to show through while evening skintone and covering light discoloration.
To get the best effect for HD filming this foundation needs to be used with other HD products such as primer and powder. Otherwise you may lose the intended 'HD'ness of the foundation.
