What a product hype causes!! Lord knows i didn't need any more foundation but i couldn't resist with all the hype around the MUFE! I had seen tons of reviews and youtube demos on this foundation and it did look great. That i must say. I travelled a few months ago and visited the MUFE stand and i was confused because i didn't know if i would be a shade 170 or 173. The lady at the counter tried to force the 170 on me but i just wasn't having it and she just wasn't convincing enough. I had just replaced my trusty MAC studio fix and it just felt wrong buying another foundation on the same day.#shopahlicsguilt #confessionsofaspendthrift

What Makeup Forever says: The HD range includes complexion products designed for the new needs of high definition image using very fine ingredients for an invisible, natural makeup finish.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: Before i post a revew of  a popular product like this , I always go read a ton of reviews to make sure i'm not being too nice or harsh . This doesn't really change my opinion of that product as i realize that stuff works differently for everyone. I'm sure a tonof people will expect me to rave about this and swear on all the makeup GAWDSS!! Firstly, i noticed this is a bit on the watery side. It is a medium coverage but buildable. I like when i apply my foundation and it gives me good coverage instantly. I had to reapply in some certain places to get the amount of coverage i wanted. Also, this applies better with a flap top brush. I used a damp beauty blender with this and it just soaked up all the product.

The color match is perfect. 173 has a nice yellow undertone that suits me perfectly. I would also recommend applying this foundation under a primer like the Beautifully matte. A gel based primer not so much as this tends to get real shiny if you have already oily skin.

Honestly, i don't know how i feel about this foundation. I am not in L.O.V.E like i expected i would be.It's decent, not cheap but gets the job done. I must say it is a tad bit over rated. I don't get the hype.

What do you think guys? Do you love it or are on the fence? Let me know your thoughts.


Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Guuurrrl!!! I've got this foundation as well. And you are right, it's slightly 'runny' (not as thick as studio fix) and I feel it leaves me shiny after a couple hours. And I don't get as smooth a coverage as I do with my trusty Studio Fix.

    I'm just like you, I don't get the hype either, BUT I haven't chucked it in the bin just yet. Maybe there's something we're missing lol!

  2. I got the foundation last year. Its still on my shelf. I'm sure I've used only about a quarter of it. I also think Its highly overrated and expensive. So not impressed. Unto the next foundation

  3. You know what's the business though? The MUFE matte velvet now that I am OBSESSED with because its the only foundation that can tamper my oily skin.

  4. Thanks for this review. I was about purchasing this product as it is am going to pause cause am already oily and I don't need to look shiny

  5. I have been revving to buy this foundation but holding on as I wasn't so sure about the right shade, am an NC45 but slightly lighter on me, I have a combination skin or should I say normal cos only my t zone gets oily, I might try this foundation cos its on offer with 20% off.

  6. I used it and gave myself the best makeup look before a runway show ever. I had run into the problem that none of the makeup artist knew how to do skin of color without ghosting my face. So I used this but I had to prime and set it and it lasted all night even for the afterparty. I did apply with a very light hand as I dont need foundation but wanted a more finished look , I would say not a bad foundation , but its not made for full coverage and if you have a lot of dark dark spots or excessive hyper pigmentation don't buy but if you have relatively clear skin and want a more finished look , do it.
