Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation has been launched not so long ago. Today, this innovative foundation is one of the most talked about in the beauty community.
I have never tried Make Up For Ever before, so you can probably imagine how excited I was when I’ve got this package:
I’ve been analyzing countless reviews and opinions on the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation and here is my conclusion: people either love it or hate it. Unfortunately, I am one of those who have been deeply disappointed by this foundation. I will tell you everything about it.
The packaging is nice. Looks neat and professional. In case you’re wondering, the container is made of plastic, not glass. It also comes with a pump.
Regular amount of product – 1 oz/ 30 ml. Price – $43. Water based foundation.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation comes in 40 shades!!! You have yellow and red based shades. Depending on which undertone you need, your shade will start with a Y (yellow) or R (red). I have been sent the first three lightest yellow based shades.
You will have your number printed on the bottom.
Out of three shades Y205, Y215, Y225 the last one Y225 was a good match for my skin tone at the moment. Y205 was way too light even for my light skin. Y205 is almost white. Y215, even though starts with a Y, has a pink hue in it. That was something I didn’t expect.
I would highly recommend you trying this foundation on before you buy it, for the best color match. It can be tricky to get the right shade online. Especially since there 40 shades! You can get easily lost…
Here you can see the swatches yourself. I have included a swatch of my MAC Studio Fix Foundation NC15 for comparison.
With 4k technology, the next generation of digital devices will display images with unbelievable detail, stunning clarity, and heightened color than existing HD technology. Completely invisible under the latest, ultra-magnified resolution, these innovative foundation formulas look completely natural on camera—and to the naked eye.
Make Up Forever also promises buildable coverage and a smoothing effect.
Now, let me tell you my story.
- Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation doesn’t blend into my skin. It just sits on top. Looks awful.
- Applies patchy. And it is not easily spreading out.
- I didn’t notice any smoothing effect.
- Very light coverage. And I’ve been trying to build it up… FAIL! I ended up looking cakey.
- Also doesn’t blend well with other products I apply on my face, like correctors and concealers.
- It will cling to your dry patches.
- A drugstore foundation lasts on me longer than the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation. It separates on me so badly withing 5 hrs. I know that could happen if I’d have dehydrated skin, since this is a water based foundation. But I use pretty heavy moisturizers… So this should not be the case.
- Since it is a very runny formula, it will get messy.
- It just separates after being on my face for 1.5-2 hrs.
And I tried to apply this foundation with every tool possible, from a stippling brush to a beauty blender… The magic never happened.
Yes, I’ve been shaking it too before using. Didn’t help.
I wanted to love it, I really tried to… But with every new try, I have been more and more disappointed.
I didn’t mention from the very beginning, but I have received along with the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation, the Step1 Skin Equalizers, which are basically primers.
Make Up For Ever has a variety of 10 Step1 Skin Equalizer Primers that would cover any of your skin concern.
They retail for $37 and you get 1 oz /30 ml of product.
Again, lovely packaging. The tube is pleasant to the touch. Feels so velvety.
I have 4 primers out of 10: Mattifying, Smoothing, Hydrating and Nourishing.
Do you see that each one of them is made in a different country? :)
The nozzle is very very convenient and practical, You can get the tiniest amount… So you don’t waste any product.
I am not gonna talk much about these. The only one that is worth mentioning and really worked for me is the Mattifying primer. Just make sure you apply the smallest amount possible – the size of a rice grain, just where you need it. Otherwise your foundation is not gonna apply right. The Mattifying primer did really keep me shine free. Not for the whole day of course, but there definitely was a difference.
The Smoothing one didn’t do much for my pores or fine lines… The Nourishing primer feels just like a heavier version of my moisturizer… The Hydrating works like a light moisturizing lotion. Nothing impressed me that much that I could say these are worth the $37.
I can not recommend these products besides the Step1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer.
The only thing I liked about the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation is the huge variety of shades and the packaging. I consider for the price they could do it better. Especially marketing it as a Ultra HD foundation… it looks horrible on me. It looks horrible on photos, videos and to the “naked eye”.
