Product Review:

Having purchased MUFE HD foundation years ago, with less than stellar results, I was hesitant to try this foundation. However, I went to my local Sephora and asked for a sample which lead to the purchase of the full size product.
First, since I am so pale finding an exact match for my skin tone is difficult but the color of their lightest shade is amazing and perfect for any porcelain skin tone out there. The product is very lightweight and a little goes a long way! I found this foundation to have a medium coverage with a semi-matte finish. The formula is non-irritating and easy to remove with a simple makeup removing wipe.
Second, this foundation formula did not last beyond three hours before it began to oxidize creating an oily mess. Additionally I had fine lines appear more prevalent do to the strange oiliness it created. I assume building to a full or heavier coverage would cause more problems so those with combination to oily skin should probably avoid this product.

Last, I have found a great use for this product as a highlighter of sorts on top of another base foundation. I am not completely dissatisfied with this product as I can see practical uses for it when makeup may be worn for shorter durations. Unfortunately Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet did not make it onto my shelf, but it is still in my makeup case for use as a highlighter.
