There was so much buzz around Makeup Forever being available from Debenhams as it had previously been difficult to get hold of in the UK. And with their original HD foundation being loved by many, when they released the ultra HD version, with so many good reviews I NEEDED to try it!
This foundation has been developed for use in the film and TV industry and promises to create a naturally flawless finish on and off camera. With such advanced technology this promises to be completely invisible under 4k lens. A 4k camera has 8million pixels meaning that detail is stronger and the image is much clearer. The foundation provides a medium buildable coverage, with a light weight second skin feel. It's also formulated with hyaluronic spheres for all day comfort on all skin types. There are 40 shades to choose from. YES 40! Meaning all skin tones are covered. Although this did make matching my shade online rather tricky. I picked up the Y315 Sand. Which actually matches my skin tone perfectly (go me)!
I don't think I've been more excited to try a foundation and was really hoping this would be the one. The consistency is very light weight and easy to blend. Although I did found the coverage more on the sheer side, it did require some building. I definitely prefer coverage on the full side so I was not to pleased to have to build this, although this is good for those who prefer to have coverage choice. The finish is definitely very skin like - not too matte but not too glowy. This does have amazing lasting power! It lasted all day with out caking, going patchy or shiny! So that was a major plus! (I have combination skin, depending on the time of year) I can see why this is loved by makeup artists and those in the film industry. Although, I don't think this is the best foundation I've ever tried. I prefer foundations to be more glowy and to not have to build the coverage. I didn't find it comfortable either - it felt a bit dry through out the day. Oily skins will probably love this. Overall, I think this foundation is ok. I don't love and I don't hate it. And at £29 pound a pop I was definitely expecting a lot more! Will my quest ever end?!!
