Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Make-Up

What is it? Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Face and Body Liquid Make-Up

 

Never be (satisfied) enough with the foundations you have? We have another qualified one to review here. Has anyone ever used MUFE face & body foundation?

The Claim:

MUFE  Face and Body Liquid Make Up combines an ultra lightweight formula with seamless coverage. The unique gel formula is comprised of more than 75% water, delivering a natural result suitable for all skin types. It gives the skin a uniform tone and leaves a satin finish. Easy to apply and water resistant. Also a perfect formula for the body. The gel texture of the Face and Body Liquid Make Up is light, fresh and smooth. It evens out the complexion and leaves a thin layer of powder on the skin for a very natural finish. Its long-lasting and water-resistant formula suit for body makeup application. Recommended for all skin types – with its light texture, especially suitable for mature and problem skin.

The secret is all in this top-selling formula. This waterproof, ultra-light, water-based gel contains no emulsifier, and provides a totally natural, satin finish. Ideal for normal skin-types as well as for skin with fine lines and large pores. Gives skin a uniform tone without accentuating imperfections.

The Star Ingredients:

Volatile silicon: widely used as carrier or diluent to enhance spreading; evaporates quickly from the skin without stinging, and leaving it feeling pleasantly dry and smooth

Pigments coated with hydrophobic properties: surface treatments enable ease of formulation with improved stability, while improving pigment’s performance, wearability and feel, ensuring the highest degree of particle coverage and optimized consistency.

The Packaging and Formula:

This foundation comes in a chubby glass bottle with a pump. The tiny lid stays on well and the pump dispenses the perfect amount of product. I like the bottle design as it looks different than the other usual cylinder bottle, and airs sophistication as well. It allows you to be able to see how much product is left. The formula tends to keep my face moist, perfect for my dry skin. It’s thin and watery so it’s easily blendable.

 

The Verdict:

On me, normal to dry skin:

Upon first application, I love the calming sensation it gave on my skin; it felt comfortable and very easy to smooth all over face. This foundation really looks like real skin. It looks natural; on me, it’s a bit dewy in finish. I applied it with stippling brush; some reviews said it gets more matte finish if applied by fingers. It looks like my skin, just a better and radiant version of it. I had doubts about coverage power since it was so thin and watery, but it covers enough for everyday wear and is beautifully buildable. Just put transparent setting powder, and I’m done. For special occasions, I use pressed powder to set the look.

Not to forget, this product is recommended also for body, to even out the skin tone of the intended area. But I personally don’t find it necessary to applied it on body, hence I’m wondering in what occasion does someone need to have it applied on the body.

(before and after application)

On Erweniati, normal to oily skin:

The calming sensation upon application is an added advantage, but the performance and after-feel is more important to me. The coverage is sheer, (I am not really into sheer foundation) so I wear cream foundie beforehand for it to last longer, since there are many to cover ;p. I did try using it without cream foundation, it was barely there! I definitely need more coverage than this.

With my HG sequence (primer, cream foundie, MUFE face & body, loose/setting powder), I got satin finished look. Just perfect to go along the day.

What can be improved?

From the website, they have these 19 shade to choose. But apparently, only 5-6 shade are available for Indonesia market. I was suggested shade #34, so did Erweniati. It blends nicely into my skin tone, but I feel I could have a much better and perfect tone with other shade, which sadly is not available here.
