When I sent Ashley to the the Make Up For Ever Seminar at the Canadian Beauty College she of course could not leave empty handed! She was kind enough to provide a detailed review of her favourite purchase from that day.
Price: $42.00 (CAN)
Available: At your local Sephora or MUFE seller (for instance, the Canadian Beauty College is a MUFE seller)
What It Claims: “…an oil free full coverage liquid foundation that covers imperfections while remaining invisible…”
Review: Here was my issue with foundation – the dreaded neckline. You could 100% tell when I was wearing foundation because there was a noticeable colour difference between my neck and my face. My problem? Too fair skin. The tones and shades sold by the drugstore brands were made for the masses, so I was forced to conform.
Here’s where MUFE HD Foundation is different. The foundation is available in 26 shades that all differ based on cool or warm undertones, and skin colour.
Best part? The foundation has massive staying power. I don’t need to reapply once during the day – unheard of with my regular drugstore foundation. I currently apply with a foundation brush; I find it makes all the difference for long-lasting wearability. Would I ever change back to my regular drugstore foundation? Not anytime soon.
Foundation Matching Tip: As provided by Jacquie, the MUFE expert I met at the Canadian Beauty College, foundation matching is all in the swipe. Most of us try to match foundations against the back of our hands – big NO NO. Also, most of us try to match foundation by blending – another NO NO. According to Jacqui, foundations should be swiped onto the cheek for a solid match. Once swiped, leave the foundation on the skin for a few minutes to allow it to absorb. The skin will naturally pick out which foundation is best for you WITHOUT blending – the foundation that is most naturally matched against your skin tone without blending is your winner.
Verdict: Well worth the expensive price tag. Who doesn’t want to wear the makeup the stars are wearing?
