SO. This foundation changed the game for me indefinite. I can best describe it as weightless new skin if that even makes sense. When I first used it, I was very skeptical as per just in case my skin reacted as I’m super sensitive and literally anything can break me out or just look awful on me, to top it off I was using it on my 18th birthday so it kinda had to be good first time or else.
When I applied it after primer, straight away I knew I loved it. Its, in my opinion, a medium-full coverage foundation. I always tend to go for a fuller coverage because sheer on me is just a bad look. This foundation can however be sheered out to a lighter coverage and you can go in with as little or as much as you like for your desired effect. I painted it on like my face was a wall because that’s the kind of girl I am. I feel you can apply as much as you want without it looking cakey and also that you really don’t need to use a lot of product for a full coverage.
The shade range is outstanding. Make-Up Forever as a brand is renowned for their vast shade range throughout all their products. I love that they separate things into R and Y (rose and yellow skin undertones) and then have a lot under each letter from the palest to the darkest. I have this foundation currently in three shades, Y325, Y405 and Y415. Although there is a counter now in the Manchester Debenhams that I’ve been in multiple times I still have never bothered to go and match the shades in store which is pretty stupid but I’m lazy. Y405 I got using Findation.com comparing my tan shades in other foundations I own and I have to say it’s a pretty good match. A few months after I ordered the other two shades, Y415 as my fake tan got darker and I found Y405 to be more orange rather than olive toned, and Y325 for when I’m paler.
You get 45g of product at the price of £30. I purchase this foundation and all Make-Up Forever products from Debenhams. I think it’s a good price for a high-end foundation and love the way it feel and looks on my skin. The packaging is very lightweight and compact, great for travel but not flimsy. I like that it comes with a cap on-top of the stick as well as a lid.
After using for the best part of a year I can safely say it’s my go-to foundation for any night out or day where I want a full coverage, long wearing look. It is definitely more on the dewy than matte side so be wary to set with a good powder if you’re oily. I vary from being dry to oily and change my primers and powders up to suit my skin on the day. I also feel it will suit any skin type and there’s definitely a shade for everyone. Will always re-purchase.
