Last week I “popped my head” into Sephora and I managed to pick up the Make Up For Ever HD foundation. I matched myself to shade # 155 and I must confess I was absolutely blown away. It’s not easy for a foundation to impress me but this went to the top of my favourites very quickly. I was actually in there to purchase a backup for my Dior Tinted Moisturizer which I also like, but the swatch of this on my hand felt so velvety and soft I had to match myself.
Their range of colouring is actually pretty amazing and because of this I rate this foundation significantly higher than Nars Sheer Glow which only matches me in Barcelona a colour I can only use in the winter when I’m rather pale. I love the packaging and the fact that it has a pump (cough Nars cough)!!
The application is smooth and I would say the staying power is about 4 hours for my combination skin before I have to touch up.
As far as coverage I would say it is pretty buildable to medium coverage and will not look cakey.
I would highly recommend trying this or at least getting a sample, you won’t be disappointed.
Have any of you ever tried this? What are your thoughts?
