Holy Grail Foundation… Make Up For Ever’s Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation Review

This here’s a powder foundation that changes the rules.

While most powder foundations go on light when dry and heavier when wet, Make Up For Ever’s new Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation does just the opposite.

It’s a light powder that goes on heavier when used dry (especially when it’s applied with the accompanying sponge), but when you wet the sponge and apply it, it goes on like a sheer tinted moisturizer!

Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation

The reason I’m calling the the holy grail of foundation? Let me tell you the reasons:

Firstly, the colour selection is just awesome. I found a complete match which means no foundation lines at all.

Secondly, when used dry even though you’re getting heavier coverage, there’s no caking. The foundation looks pretty natural.

Thirdly, you can play with the coverage. Though I really liked the look when I used the foundation wet, I also found it pretty easy to apply with a big fluffy powder brush and got light coverage even though I was using it dry.

Fourth, this foundation lasts on your skin a really long time whether you use it wet or dry. It’s actually really impressive.

Fifth, it works for almost any kind of skin. If you have oily skin, you’ll see that the powder version does a great job at absorbing oil, while the wet version is great for those who have dry skin.

If you’re looking for a good foundation, give this one a try. It rivals anything by MAC, and the colour selection is actually better!

Available at Sephora stores for $42.

    Thanks for the great review. I’m going to check it out at Sephora tonight. I have oily skin so I like the idea that it absorbs oil.

    Hi, recently found your site and love the info always very honest and complete. I was wondering what your opinion is of the new Bare Minerals Ready Foundation which I understand is still the same mineral powder but it is now pressed into a compact.

    Dior Capture Totale has been the foundation I have found over the past year. I do want to try Estee Lauder double wear as it is recomended by many.
    I would like to try this powder as well as I just am tired of the mess of loose powders, where is it available? Is it in any stores or online? Thanks and Im pleased you found the one, its quite an important thing and feels great to know you have found a product that works so well for you, it is exciting. Still looking I think as I would like to find a powder I like as well as the Dior liquid
