Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation £29.00 - Link
Make Up For Ever have become renown for their HD Foundation over the years, and since the news of their latest launch the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation which claims to be even more undetectable and perfecting than the original, it was only a matter of time before I'd be adding this to my makeup collection and seeing how it compared to the original.
The Makeup Forever Ulta HD foundation is designed to look invisible on 4K camera and to the naked eye. The Ultra HD foundation feels like a second skin, but still provides medium coverage, and the light-diffusing formula looks natural and makes skin look flawless and feel moisturised. The exclusive 4K complex guarantees invisible, natural and comfortable makeup, whilst the fluid texture blends in seamlessly and conceals imperfections to unify the skins texture.
The Ultra HD Foundation is actually a revamp on the original foundation - which I believe is becoming discontinued- creating a formula that is smoother, silkier and more weightless and perfect for 4K HD video. This for me was one of those foundations that once you have applied you end up spending a good five minutes looking at yourself in the mirror because it looks so good.
Once applied this is such a natural looking foundation, even when built up in areas which need it and creates such an airbrushed look when applied with either my buffing brush or beauty blender. It didn't cling around my nose or chin area which foundations sometimes have the tendency of doing and a little goes a long way, so just one pump can easily cover your face and then still leave some to give additional coverage where needed.
In terms of formula, I do actually prefer this to the original, I feel that it is a lot easier to work with and settles into the skin creating a satin finish that doesn't fall too matte nor too dewy which is perfect for those with oily skin. I love how this feels on my skin also, it's one of those foundations that provides good coverage and will reduce redness but feels so soft and lightweight you can literally dab your hands along your face and not feel the foundation, unlike some heavy formulas. Lasting power I find this wears for around 6-8 hours on my skin before I felt the need to start blotting around my t-zone which is quite good actually.
I do recommend getting matched for this foundation as there are 40 shades to choose from, so unless you have tried the original formula it can be so confusing. I was originally matched to the wrong shade in Paris, so got a lighter one from Debenhams but I have found despite my original being a darker shade it does buff and blend out easily to match my summer skin.
Overall this has quickly become one of my favourite foundations and photographs beautifully, I wore this when I went out to the Eiffel tower for my dinner whilst in Paris and looks so flawless when worn. I think if you have tried the original formula you will love this in comparison.
Have you tried any of the Makeup Forever foundations?
