I loved the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation (which I recently used up… finally!), so when I was excited to hear about the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation. There were so many great reviews online. Let’s see how it worked for me!
What it does: (from the Sephora website)
Developed specifically for the film and TV industry’s most advanced technology, Ultra HD Liquid Foundation creates a naturally flawless complexion—in and out of the spotlight. Invisible under the latest, super-focused 4k lens, this revolutionary foundation features uniquely-coated pigments that provide medium to buildable coverage with an even lighter weight, second-skin texture that looks just like skin. This formula leaves your complexion with the same flawless results that you’d achieve with a flat foundation brush in a tap and stretch motion. It contains hyaluronic spheres to ensure comfortable wear on all normal, dry and combination skin types, and it lasts all day, leaving a natural-looking finish. Now available in an expanded range of 40 shades to match all skintones, Ultra HD is the perfect everyday foundation for a flawless complexion—and it doesn’t require touch ups.
Price: $43 for 1.01 oz. For comparison, the MUFE Mat Velvet+ is $39 for the same amount of product.
Availability: Sephora.com says this is an exclusive product.
What I thought:
Let’s compare this to the claims, shall we?
- creates a naturally flawless complexion: Yes, I loved how it looked on my skin! It disappeared into my skin and looked great.
- medium to buildable coverage: It did a good job at making my skin look even, but I wouldn’t say it covered my imperfections
- available in an expanded range of 40 shades: Yes, this is great!
- doesn’t require touch ups: This is where I don’t agree. Although this product says it works for all skin types, and my skin is not oily in the winter, this product looked shiny on me within a few hours. It also rubbed off very quickly.
Maybe I need to set it with more powder? However, since I really do like how it looks, I have been mixing this with my matte foundations for a natural look.
Would I repurchase? Probably not. Unfortunately, this was a let down for me!
Hope you enjoyed this review!
