Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Review

I have Make Up for ever HD foundation in # 123 Desert. It is a super close match to my skin. In fact sometimes I am surprised how close match this foundation is to my skin tone.

Claims : The MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion products use innovative formulas to create a new generation of make up which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye. The Make Up For Ever HD Foundation is an oil-free medium-to-full coverage liquid foundation which covers skin imperfections, while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life. Its extremely fine texture is supple and easy to apply. Enriched with moisturizing agents, it leaves the skin soft and radiant. It is available in a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones.

My Experience with Make Up for Ever HD Foundation:

  • It is one of the finest formula in foundation I have ever used. The texture is so thin and fine that even if you are standing very close to me, you would not be able to guess easily whether I am wearing a foundation or not.
  • It never ever broke me out.
  • It is an oil free foundation so girls with oily skin would love it. However I don’t find it drying for my dry skin as well. These days when the weather is getting very dry, I am finding it difficult to use. Otherwise I can easily use this HD foundation all year round barring a few cold months.
  • During the month of September when the weather was still hot, this foundation used to oxidize on my skin. However, when worn with aย  primer, it stayed as it is all day long.
  • The foundation doesn’t disappear or fade after a few hours .
  • It has medium to buildable coverage, which I love. I would say the coverage is pretty good and itย  leaves only a small room for concealer application.
  • The Make Up For Ever foundation is especially designed for photography, however I don’t find it any special for photographs. In fact, I feel other foundations photograph better. ๐Ÿ˜•

  • This is the only foundation I am not comfortable applying with fingers. It dries super fast and gets difficult to spread. So I love using brushes with this brush. Mostly, it is Sigma F 80 brush.
  • Non transferable.
  • No funny smell.
  • It is not a dewy foundation so I mostly like to use cream blush when I apply this foundation. Also I don’t need to set this foundation with powder. It just sets and stays on its won.
  • It gives a flawless non cakey coverage.
  • It comes in a sturdy pump bottle. Easy to use and easy to carry around.

Overall, I love this product. It’s worth the hype. Girls would oily skin would love it but those with normal to dry skin wouldn’t be disappointed either.ย  If you have not been able to find your exact match, you’d probably find it in Make Up For Ever. There are shades that are neither too yellow or pink. Great for any time of the day.

    1. The biggest plus point I see is that a lot of people are not able to find their exact match in MAC foundations. Either they find it too yellow or too pink. In Make Up For Ever such people would be able to find their exact match.

      Otherwise I dont see a major reason why you would pick mufe over a mac foundation. It’s a good foundation but I wouldnt place it right next to my mac foundations ,not above them.

  1. Sounds really great. But I find it a bit expensive. Isn’t it??
    I was thinking of buying Revlon colorstay or Max factor Age renew or maybe this one too.
    Which one do you think is the best? ?:-)

    1. It is super expensive. I love max factor foundation. I have used the age renew one. That’s for dry skin. I think almost all maxfactor foundations have been reviewed here. you may check the reviews here :

      Never used revlon but it has great reviews.

      The biggest plus points with high end foundation is that you get your perfect match and you can try the foundations at store.

      If you can find a good match in revlon or maxfactor, you may very well pick those up. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. Another thing, make up for ever claims that their products are good for skin and they would make your skin better with regular usage. Well! i didn’t see any such change in my skin texture and I have used it regularly for weeks at a ago.

      So if you think that the claim would work for you, you may pick MUFE. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. i love makeup forvever foundations, im currently using one.. not this one though…
    its not even meant for oily skin, still i dont even know why i wear it, maybe because its super easy to blend,and simply because some how it makes me GLOW.. like realy REALY GLOW..! ๐Ÿ™‚

    but makeup forever is sooo expensive mine had cost me around 2300 even on discount :O

    1. It happens. Sometimes you use products that you like and that may not be necessarily “made for you” types. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I am also pretty happy with this foundation. it does its job well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. opppss my bad … i confused it for makeup factory foundation…
    mine is makeup factory ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› its makeup factory dats expensive ๐Ÿ˜› :silly: :silly: :silly:

  4. Rati your skin looks flawless and glowy. ๐Ÿ™‚ This foundation sounds great. The blushes from the MUFE HD line look great too. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: makeup forever is an expensive brand. they don’t even call themselves a luxury brand. They are the revlon of high end brands. Quite confused with their pricing. ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. “They are the revlon of high end brands” lol.. you look really pretty!!!!!!!!!!! but i wonder why i like your mi ๐Ÿ˜Ž neralize spf 15 better!:P:D

  6. wonderfull..ur skin looks flawless…even without loose natural..n here the confusion begins..mac or mufe..but mufe is not available in chennai na Rati? :pain:

  7. U look au naturel! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know much about foundations, but I hav heard that mac isn’t for the Indian skin tone…. Which one gives a more natural look, MAC or MUFE?

    1. I like both the foundations but MUFE one can give you no makeup look. ๐Ÿ™‚

      And MAC foundations are so awesome for Indian skintones. It’s just about finding your right shade. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. rati, you loos so natural with this on! btw which lipgloss is this?- i luv it ๐Ÿ™‚

    also, how the hell am i to uplaod my pic alongside thse comments….i just can’t seem to figure out. i asked a few but nobody tells me anything here :-((

  9. Natasha and preetha,

    go to and upload your photo there. Just use the same email id you use on IMBB. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Natatasha , just a clear gloss. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Would you pls stop wearing lipglosses…use some dumb dodo lipstick…dark brown or something… :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: Me going :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :alien: :alien: :alien: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: looking at the pic. I liked the bottle … I guess its all your crazy talk getting to my head…I want these kinds instead of pans and tubs which I will need ice cream spoons for ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    1. Why would I stop wearing lip glosses. it’s only recently i have started wearing them :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

      grrrr…I checked the dior foundation. they have two kinds for dry skin. me doing to buy that next if I find the shade. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Huhhhhhhhhhh….enoughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: I send you MF ka foundation which I no longer like in comparison to some others I have recently purchased…you use that…I use my fingers directly to take it its pretty dirty also :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

          1. and “compared to other foundations I recently purchased” Prrreeeennn queen title of the day goes to you. :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil:

    thnk u rati ji . . . :blush: :blush: :blush:

  12. Was waiting for this review from you… ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ The hype around this is unbelievable.. I mean women are just throwing themselves off the roof to get this na… ๐Ÿ˜•

    Hey, I am sooo satisfied with Age renew only.. :blush: :blush:

    You know trying out these high end brand just make you hungry for more.. It’s addictive… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

    Change this blog’s name, Rati… It should be MA.. Makeupaholic anonymous!!!! :laugh: :laugh:

    1. Huh??? really? I mean it’s a good foundation but i can easily resist myself from repurchasing it.

      yeah once you use high end foundations, you dont want to go back to the drugstore ones. but then except maxfactor I did not find my shade in any other foundation as well.

      Makeupaholic anonymous is a good name. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  13. Yeah tht’s whtg i thought after I googled it and referred you tube…

    MF has very few shades but even i managed to get my perfect one.. We are just lucky, maybe…

    But the textres and varieties are amazing with MF.. Maybe I’ll get my first MAC foundation next week… MAC Concealer toh I’m getting for sure..

    MA rocks!!!

  14. I love :heart: this foundation…been using it from july 2010…picked it up from Sephora when i’d gone to the Usa…. i use shade 127(dark sand) gives good coverage and looks natural at the same time…and i will definetely buy it again unless i find sumthing better ๐Ÿ˜›

  15. woooooooooow… your skin is gorgeous and flawless in that pic :inlove: ! but i am not gonna be able to afford this foundation no where in the near future! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Rati I love ur skin. I have a ques for you ….Can you please tell me what are nice products for indian complexion ? and which foundation gives a nice and healthy glow and the concealer, face powder, translucent powder……??????

  17. Hi Rati,
    Can you suggest a foundation which is good for acne prone skin and does not leave a white cast in flash photography?



    1. thnxs Jomol :thanks: :thanks: ….but i am from Bangalore :woot: :woot: …..Any store in Delhi ?? :waiting: :waiting:

  18. I am confused whether to buy MUFE HD foundation or MAC. I have been using MAC’s studio fix foundation for almost 4 years. It stays for long but oxidizes so quick when its hot. What’s your take? MUFE or MAC? ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Dear Rati, I have been reading many of your reviews. I too use the Lotus Herbal Eco-Stay Hazelnut Star shade, which you use as mentioned in your different post. I don’t find much Cosmetic Outlets here in Goa, so can I go ahead and buy this 123 desert shade online, since this too you are using, and your and mine shade matches in Lotus.
