Make up for ever : HD Invisible Cover foundation

Grace @ No.21 Monday, June 24, 2013
 I have never used Make Up For Ever's foundation and this is my first ever experience. First of all, in my opinion,  $42 is pretty expensive for a one foundation and always scared that I wouldn't like it after the purchase.  Moreover, I use up my foundations or tinted moisturizers pretty quickly so in this case, the price does matter and affect my decision.  Thankfully, I got this one as a gift, now I had a chance to use it and could compare this one with some affordable ones.
Make Up For Ever HD Foundation #118 Flesh
:for light skin with yellow undertones. - $42.00
 *This item was a gift
Claim:
An oil-free medium-to-full-coverage liquid foundation that covers skin imperfections flawlessly while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life. This foundation creates a soft-focus effect, which is designed to meet the coverage concerns of those in the spotlight. It leaves your complexion with such a flawless finish, it can withstand bright or harsh lighting.

Ingredients:
-Relipidium: Moisturizes the skin (+46% after 4h).
-Fucogel: Forms a microfilm that prevents dehydration and protects against external aggression.
-Sericite: Enables rays of light to spread more widely intensifying the radiance of the complexion.

Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate, Mica, talc, PEG-10 Dimenthicone, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Phenyl, Trimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Lauroyl Lysine, Dimenthicone Crosspolymer, Glyceryl Caprylate, Methylpropanediol, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sodium Myristoyl Glutamate, Cyclohexacyloxane, Methylisothiazolinone, Sorbitan Sesquileate, Silver Oxide, Propylene, Carbonate, Parfum (fragrance), Methylparaben, Fagus Sylvatica Extract (Fagus Sylvatica Bud Extract), Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein, [+/- CI 77891 )titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides).

The package of this foundation looks so simple and sleek. I really like its pump, it makes easy to use.
Since it was a gift, the shade was a bit lighter on my skin- It didn't match my skin perfectly but still okay.

This foundation is a very light weight and fresh feeling, however, I found it leaves a little cakey look in the beginning and blends into skin later on. When i used tiny bit, it still covered red spots completely. It usually takes double amount of other foundations so I would say this HD foundation does good job on covering blemishes and red spots with small amount.

Pros:
  1.  Great coverage
  2.  Nice package
  3.  Usable pump on a bottle
  4.  Light weight
  5.  Looks great and flawless on-screen
  6.  Multiple shades you can choose from
 Cons:
  1. Pricey
  2. I could see it stays in lines and wrinkles.
  3. Looks a bit, tiny bit cakey in real life.
 I would probably stick with my No7 Tinted Moisturizer & Maybelline's dream liquid mousse for everyday use and might use this foundation on special occasion where I need photo-shoot or need complete coverage.

  1. I read often in people's reviews that this foundation doesn't look all that natural in person but photographs beautifully. I've always been curious about it, I think I'm going to get sample x

    1. Oh yeah I really recommend using a sample before buying the full-size one.I definitely agree with those who said looks good on-screen. It makes your skin look flawless and even toned but I think it's only made for photographs.. Not sure about it in person since it goes into every single lines and cracks and make it look cakey. xx

  2. Now this looks really nice in the photos as to me it looks really light, I presume they do a good shade range? It is a shame that you found it cakey though as there is nothing worse than buying a new foundation only to find it cakes up on your skin.

    1. It does have good shade range since there's more lighter and darker shades you can choose from. I know.. I'm glad it was a gift and didn't 'purchase' it on my own.xx

  6. I've tried this before and had the same outcome. For me, it just turned out way too cakey.

    1. ew We don't want anything that make us look caked up! I liked its coverage though x

  7. I guess it was created just to be used in photography, not so much for everyday wear and that's too bad considering how great the coverage sounds : / Too pricey for me, I'm sticking to my beloved BBs for now. Thanks for the review though Grace ^^ xx

  8. I was considering to try this before I read your review but by the sounds of it, its not for me as I sometimes go with no foundation to avoid the cakey look. Thank you! X

  9. A lot of makeup artists have said that Make Up For Ever's HD line is really just meant for photography and film, which is a bit of a shame...
