Having full coverage foundation is a must. For me at least.  Flawless base is essential, I’m sure you’ll all agree so I am always on a hunt for the perfect foundation that offers full coverage but at the same time doesn’t look cakey and feels comfortable on the skin. After my downright horrible experience with Laura Mercier Silk Crème, I was pretty much forced into getting a new full coverage foundation, which would make all the damages Silk Creme has done less obvious. After some research I decided that I should go for the MUFE HDInvisible Cover Foundation $42. And I wasn’t wrong.

For starters, I have to take a moment and appreciate the packaging, which is usually my biggest concern. Glass bottle – check. Pump – check. Lid – check. Luxurious feel – check. So far so good.

One thing I know all of you will be thrilled to hear is that Invisible Cover has incredible shade range. The 26 shades will cover everyone’s needs and I am lucky to say that I found the most perfect match for my skin. For reference, I am MAC NW20 and MUFE’s N115 Ivory is even better match. The HD foundation blends like a dream and there is no trace from the color in sight – it just disappears on the skin, creating a ‘second layer of perfect skin’. Buff the product really well into the skin and this barely-there foundation will make your skin look really natural. Lovely surprise, which I didn’t expect in a full coverage foundation. Thumbs up!

The coverage of the MUFE HD foundation is also incredible. At first, you feel like it doesn’t do much but as you keep blending it in, you start to realize that it actually covers everything. It just doesn’t look obvious. The coverage is definitely full but could be build down if you fancy more of a sheer finish. One thing to remember though is that with this foundation a little goes a long way and you need one small pump for your entire face. I like to apply Invisible Cover with my Real Techniques Expert Face brush and I am left with the most beautiful, even and natural complexion. Kiss goodbye those concerning visible spots or hyperpigmentation and welcome your flawless new skin.

The HD foundation is your ideal companion when pictures will be taken. This flash-photography-ready stuff remains invisible both in real life and on-screen and with the lack of SPF in it you don’t need to worry that you’ll look like a ghost. The foundation creates soft-focus effect, which is designed to meet the coverage concerns of those in the spotlight. The flawless complexion you’ll be left with, can withstand any bright or harsh lighting and pop some of this stuff on and start taking those photos! Selfies anyone?

The finish of the MUFE HD foundation is definitely natural but I feel like it leans a bit more toward the matte side. If I am having a bad skin day I know that this gem will come to the rescue. It manages to add light and glow to my face whilst keeping the oils at bay and making me completely shine-free (for the record I have normal to combination skin). The formula of Invisible Cover is great for my needs – water-based, oil-free, light, buildable and blends into the skin seamlessly. In terms of longevity it doesn’t fall short either and it literally stays put for the whole day without budging. Heads up to the ladies with dry skin though – this foundation is not for you. Even though it is enriched with moisturizing agent, I find that HD is not hydrating at all. It clings to imperfections and accentuates dry patches like crazy so if you have dry skin or if you have temporary dry spots – do not get involved with this foundation. It will not be your friend.

At first I wasn’t sure if the MUFE foundation will steal my heart but after playing around with it for a bit – I can say that I am completely smitten by it. It does it all for me really – it covers any imperfections, blends beautifully, looks really natural and makes my skin dewy, yet matte at the same time. Let’s not forget about the impressing longevity and the amazing photography results I get when I wear this. It really is a miracle in a bottle. The HD foundation is my savior and I would say that even though it is on the pricey side at $42– it’s worth every penny. Big thumbs up from me!

Have you tried the MUFE HD Invisible Cover foundation? Which is your favorite full coverage foundation?

  1. This sounds ever so lovely! I've been on the lookout for a foundation that matches my Nars Sheerglow but doesn't take as long blending in in the morning, maybe I should give this a go? If I'm able to get this around here that is. But it sounds like such a gem for sure!

  9. Did you mean to write "glass" bottle instead of "class"? Just thought I'd let you know! I just exchanged Urban Decay NAKED Skin for this, since I figured if I'm dropping $40 (well, I did have a $25 gift card, but still) on a foundation, it may as well be higher coverage. I like it so far!
