This is an excellent, natural and fresh looking foundation. I rub it onto my face with my fingers like I would a tinted moisturizer. It leaves me with flawless (but not too flawless) coverage. I still use a concealer for pigmentation and my purple eye circles.
The feel and wear of this foundation is what sets it apart for me. It doesn't do strange things by the end of the day like crack, flake, clump, settle, or fade off. When I set with powder (Korres Wild Rose) my foundation looks the same as I did when I first applied it.
My skin has a tendency to turn very greasy with most foundations, but not this one. The shade is a perfect match too, not too yellow. I'm extremely happy with this product and will repurchase as long as I can.
I'VE WORN THIS AND ONLY THIS FOUNDATION FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS...
I first tried this foundation out when I started working for Sephora in 2007. I tried it once & never looked back. I tell everybody and their MAMA that this is the best foundation for EVERYBODY... no matter the skin type - oily to dry to dehydrated... it's the best. IT'S 85% WATER. say no more. it'll bring an end to your clogged pores and acne that stems from wearing oil based foundations... IF YOU DON'T WEAR IT - YOU ARE NOT WINNING AT LIFE... :o)
i say that to encourage - not to be rude. it's all out of makeup love. xoxoxo
You Need It!
This is one of those foundations that you'll always find a reason to use. It works during every occasion, and the finish is perfect! It's a gel foundation that's easily buildable. Definitely works better with your fingers or brushes, as it tends to soak into sponges rather quickly. I adore it, and if I were still a makeup artist, I'd use this on every client!
It's really hard to a water-based, waterproof, and light coverage foundation with so many ranges of color! I have combination skin with more of an oily tendency, and this product stays put all day without having to touch up or worry about it melting off. The coverage is also EXTREMELY natural and sheer, but still buildable; allowing you to build up product where necessary. Also, I break out really easily, and with this product I have not broken out once even with the light fragrance. Best 40 bucks ever spent!!
I loveeee this foundation. It's quite sheer and light in terms of coverage, but it's buildable. I have pretty acne-prone skin, but this really works wonders and gives me the illusion of perfect complexion.
Great buildable coverage.
Great range of shades.
Needs to be shaken before use because of separation.
Bottle is difficult to use. Some type of pump would've been nice but I'm not a huge packaging diva... if the product is good, then I'm good.
I LOVE this stuff. I switch up my routine quite often but I always end up back with MUFE's face and body. I love that its water based and gives such a cool and smooth finish. I love how the consistency can actually help fill in the fine lines, and leave your skin looking flawless. It's my everyday wear foundation and I've never broke out because of using it. I don't like the hassle of using primer before my foundation application and with this stuff, I dont even need it. The wide range of colors is great because I've went out and bought 3 shades so far for all the seasons.
After reading reviews all over the Web on this product, I caved in and got one in shade 34. I have combination, acne-prone skin, and a lot of liquid foundations make me look like an oily mess at the end of the day.
This, however, is fantastic. It literally melts into your skin, and yes, it is rather sheer but the awesome thing about this is that you can layer and layer until you achieve the coverage you desire. The texture is gloopy, but nothing a little shaking and blending won't fix. My face does not get too oily as the day go by (unlike when I use Revlon's Colorstay or MAC's SFF), although I would still have to blot a couple of times.
It photographs wonderfully - you won't look like you have foundation on - which is amazing.
And for the price you pay, it comes in a decent size and I reckon it can last you for a long time even with daily application. The half star was taken off because I think it made me break out a wee bit.
