Make Up For Ever *new* Artist Shadows

In commemoration of their 30 year anniversary, MUFE released an entire line of brand new eye shadows/blushes. There’s 210 new colors coming in 5 formulas: diamond, iridescent, matte, metal, satin…

Recently MUFE had a special all access preview for Backstage Pass card holders (their Pro discount) and I made sure to take advantage. With the purchase of 10 or more shadows, you received a bonus discount on top of the already awesome Pro discount received! Needless to say, I made sure to stock up.

Since I no longer live near a boutique, I called in my order to the NYC boutique. Karen assisted me and she was great. Only took a few days for shipping, everything was packed tight, and I’m very pleased. I’ll be sure to place all my future orders with this boutique.

 

I also purchased 2 of the 10 color palettes (to house these refills) and they included a cute little samples kit!

Now on to the good part….

Foundation Review Series: Make Up For Ever High Definition Foundation

There are already a TON of reviews on this foundation. From YouTube, to blogs, to Instagram, all over these innanets! But here’s mine. Cause I’m a part of this “blogosphere” I’m gonna contribute, someone’s interested in my thoughts, right?

So here we go…

Coverage
This foundation is like an extra layer of skin. Not in the sense of creating a thick elephant like skin, but like your skin, but much better. It offers a sort of perfection, especially for those with limited skin issues. The coverage it offers is medium to full, however, I can not attest to how heavy a coverage it offers, as I do not like full/heavy coverage. It has also be sheered out, perhaps in conjunction with a moisturizer or mixing medium. I used almost 2 pumps and it covered my whole face and slightly down to my neck. I did use about a half a pump more in certain spots of my face where I had a couple blemishes. I decided to use 2 pumps because this was New Year’s Eve and I knew I’d be drinking which meant, I’d probably sweat a little bit. I wanted to be sure it lasted and didn’t fade. We’ll get to that point a little later tho… Check out my FOTN from New Year’s here.

I believe if you have problematic skin, this foundation will work for you. You’ll need to work with it, layer it, but wait until each layer dries before you add another. It may take some trial and error to get the right amount without it being cakey.
