REVIEW - Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

CBB's featured brand for this month is Make Up For Ever. Make Up For Ever has so many great products, but the one that stands out to me the most is their Ultra HD Foundation ($50). 
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in N127 Sand Beige
I'm not a fan of liquid foundation - my skin just can't take it. it breaks out, becomes an oil slick, or both. I also don't like when my foundation sticks to my glasses - sigh-. BUT, the one liquid foundation I will swear by is this one.

The reason I purchased this foundation was for my sisters wedding, which was in the middle of July and was going to be a day long event. I was out at 6am that day, running back and forth throughout the Greater Toronto Area - tea ceremonies, photo shoots, Church, more photo shoots and finally the dining hall - praying that my foundation would stay put. The night ended around midnight and let me tell you, my skin looked almost as good as when I left the house - just a tad bit oilier. The best part, I didn't touch it up once. Not even with a blotting tissue - nada!
This photo was taken at the dinner hall - a full 12 hours of staying on my face

The foundation comes with a pump dispenser with half a pump being enough for a thin layer of foundation. With that being said, I wouldn't say this foundation was full coverage -  it definitely can be if you build the layers, but I find one thin layer is enough to give a natural finish. 

You can see from the photos above the beautiful finish and coverage of the foundation. It's not shiny, rather it gives a semi matte look without being cake-y. When swatching the foundation, I applied some of the foundation on my face and I had forgotten how amazing it was for hot summer days - I like to save this foundation for special events instead of day to day wear, but now that idea seems silly since it holds up so well.

What's your favourite foundation?

  1. I have heard so much great reviews about this foundation and now after I read your post, I am so tempted to try. For a whole day without touch up and still looks good at the end of the night is impressive. Thanks for the review!

    1. No problem! They revamped their formula recently so it's even more lightweight with the same amount of coverage! :)

  2. The finish on this looks very nice! And judging by all the good reactions from the CBB twitter chat today, I feel like I should try this one out now lol

    1. NOOOO I totally forgot about the Twitter party!
