Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, @makeupforeverca Ultra HD foundation is now available in even more colours. They just added 15 more colours to their range and so if you were mixing to get your colour, chances are that you don’t have to do that anymore. This foundation is available in 50 colours!
I gotta say it: although I keep trying tons of different foundations, and have two on the go right now, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation is my holy grail foundation because it has a colour that matches my skin perfectly. It’s yellow, but not too yellow, and has just the right amount of warmth for my skin tone.
The consistency of this foundation is light and not thick. You can build up to medium-full coverage, but this foundation just doesn’t layer to be full coverage. I don’t like full coverage and don’t usually need it, so I’m thinking that they want you to turn to a concealer for the parts that need more coverage.
On the plus side, it’s extremely light and does look truly like skin. I forget I’m wearing foundation (although my skin looks great) and it sets to a satin matte finish that looks very natural. It’s not long-wearing and oily parts need to be primed, set well or will need another application of foundation. The foundation goes on so smoothly and has just the right amount of slip to glide on to skin. It is oil-free but not oil-absorbing so works well with a primer. I use my finger-tips to apply because it’s so fluid. I pat on to my face, and then quickly blend all over, focussing on the centre of my face.
People with normal or dry skin will really like this foundation because it won’t move throughout the day, but if you have oily skin, you may find it doesn’t last that long. It doesn’t have SPF and of course, because it’s Ultra HD it photographs beautifully!
I’m using this daily – but if I have an evening event, I reapply or even wash my face and do it all over again.
All said and done, because the colour is so great, I love love love this foundation. I even think that every person of colour should try to find a match with this foundation and try it against what they normally wear. It’s that good and you may find that you’ve been wearing the wrong colour all along!
$57 at Sephora or The Bay. There is also a stick version of this foundation (in fewer colours) that also works very well – it’s emollient and spreads evenly on the face and is more pigmented so gives more coverage.
