MUFE Face & Body Liquid Make Up Foundation Review

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 14 - 2010

Going back through some of my old photo folders I was surprised to notice that I hadn’t blogged about one of my favourite foundations ever!

I love light foundations that feel comfortable on the skin and MUFE’s Face & Body Liquid Make Up fits that criteria beautifully.  Yes, it’s sheer and will not cover blemishes – but it evens out my skintone nicely and lasts all day.  Being waterproof, it’s pretty fabulous for warm climates too.

In my humble and completely non-expert opinion, the key to falling in love with this foundation is in the way you apply it.

I layer it.

It takes a little longer, but I adore the finish that I can achieve if I take some time and care with my application.

Starting with a thin layer all over, I give the jelly-like water-based formula a couple of minues to dry.  Once set, I apply another layer… this time focusing on the centre of my face.  This is the layer that evens out the redness in my skin… not completely, but enough to keep my tone looking more uniform yet still natural.

If I have blemishes, then before applying anything… I’ll conceal them.

The formula takes a little getting used to… it’s very wet and jelly like.  Before dispensing, you need to give the bottle a thorough shake to mix the formula and when tipping beware that you can dislodge a big jellified blob onto the back of your hand if you’re not cautious!

Make Up For Ever’s Face & Body Liquid Make Up isn’t an inexpensive choice, but it’s certainly cheaper (especially for the quantity in the bottle) than most high end alternatives.

Available in the UK from Guru Makeup Emporium and PAM Makeup, 50ml will set you back around £25-£27.

As an aside, Shade #36 is the MOST perfect match for my skintone (especially in winter).  Though, ironically… it wouldn’t matter if it were a shade or two off because it’s such a forgiving sheer formula.  Why can’t I find this shade in other foundations huh?

Have you tried MUFE’s Face & Body Liquid Make Up?  What are your favourite MUFE products?  I wish we had greater availability in the UK… I can’t understand why a national chain haven’t picked the brand up already *sigh*.

    I love this foundation but i mistakenly bought no 2! I’ve been using it on my legs though over the summer and it does look lovely! I’m so mad with myself though for buying the wrong shade.

    I got this last week( in Milan of all places.) I was so impressed with the colour match that I bought it on the spot(not caring about the euro cost!) It is a delight to use, I’ve applied using fingers and a synthetic foundation brush and get a fantastic finish with both. It lasts better on my oily skin than Mac F+B which I’ve been using in C1(far too yellow) and I will def repurchase. It is a sorry shame that those of us who don’t live near London will struggle to colour match accurately due to limited stockists

    My problem with MUFE full stop is that the shade numbers bear no resemblance to what one would think, and there is nowhere near me that stocks for me to go and try and even though I am a frequent London visitor I would no more walk into a specialist makeup shop than I would fly to the moon. The reviews for this product are legend and like you I cannot believe that this brand is not more widely available. Thanks for the post and pics Jan x

    • Oh they’re so confusing aren’t they?

      Next time I’m in London, I’m planning to head to GuruMakeupEmporium again.. I’ve been there once and it’s flippin’ great. And they’re really helpful in there too. I want some of the MUFE magnetic palettes.

      If we’re ever in London at the same time, you’re coming with me!

    Have you ever thought of reviewing MUFE’s HD foundation? I’m really curious about that and I’m curious about their lift concealer…

    Ooh ooh, and I’m also curious about NARS sheer glow…my shade would probably be in Gobi (they note it to be fair with a yellow undertone and they mention “for Asian skin”)…hope you have a chance to review that somehow :) No better place to read about it than here!

    That sounds fabulous… I love light, sheer foundations but you don’t seem to find that too much in drugstores (which is where I spend the bulk of my money, when you don’t count e-tailers). I might have to find a coupon and give it a go! I need something a little more moisturizing for the upcoming winter than my regular mineral foundation.
