Every time there is a new product launch, you see every one writing about it, vlogging about, etc. for a couple of weeks to a month and then often it just fades into the background. Similarly, I sometimes get super excited for new stuff, but then ultimately end up forgetting about for a time before rediscovering it again later. Sometimes I realize that I hadn’t used it because it wasn’t that great, and sometimes I kick myself for forgetting about it because it’s the best ever. In the case of the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation (phew that was a mouthful), I am seriously giving myself the side eye for sleeping on it!
I have a few foundation favorites in a variety of formulas and finishes but sometimes those don’t seem to hold up as well depending on the season. Even though I have oily skin, I don’t typically like foundations marketed for my skin type. I used to love a matte finish foundation, but now I prefer something that looks a little fresher. Often these foundations don’t hold up well on my face though because they are better suited to dry skin. This is not the case with MUFE HD, it looks really fresh and skin-like on, but stays put on me all day with minimal blotting (which is something I have to do no matter what).
This stick has a medium to full coverage, which is helpful to me because there are some areas of my face that I like to have a little extra coverage on. My preferred method of application with this is clean fingers, because it helps the foundation melt into the skin better, however a buffing brush is also really nice. I tried blending with a Beauty Blender, but it just took to much time and more product.
As far as wear, it shifts a little by about midday in the center of my face, but that is common for me with every foundation I use. I typically just blot with a tissue and it looks good as new! Even though it can be full coverage, it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey!
I am so glad I rediscovered this foundation stick, because it’s become one of my favorite complexion products to use. It’s quick and convenient, and it gives my skin such a nice glow without being greasy!
