I’m not sure why it took me so long to review this foundation, but it’s not an awful thing because I’m 100% sure about what I feel about this foundation.
I am a huge fan of Make Up For Ever; it’s my favorite makeup brand! They are really attentive to women of color and I happen to love pretty much every product I have ever purchased from the brand. They are consistent and continue to make quality products at a really reasonable price for the quality. But on to the review. If I can describe the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in one word, it would be “medium-coverage.” Perhaps to some, that might be two words, but I would describe this as a legit medium coverage foundation. You can build it to full coverage, but it’s never truly full coverage to me compared to their Mat Velvet+ formula, which is amazing.
For some reason, I prefer the HD formula over the Ultra HD I don’t know what exactly was changed in the formula, but the HD formula, in my opinion was easier to build to full coverage. The Ultra HD foundation is very nice and has a beautiful finish, but I just prefer my foundation matte and full coverage. Speaking of matte, the coverage is not one I would describe as matte. Maybe semi-matte, as there is definitely some dewiness there. The closest match in the Ultra HD for me is 178, same as the HD formula.
I remember people raving and raging over this foundation. It’s nice, if that’s what you like. I don’t mind the finish, either. I could see someone not familiar with MUFE totally lusting over this foundation.
How do you feel about the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation?
