Make Up For Ever also known as MUFE is one of the top leading makeup companies that have mastered the art of HD makeup. MUFE was created in 1984 in Paris by co-founders Jacques Waneph and Dany Sanz-Davalinas, with a store located in the rue de la Boetie in Paris. The line is dedicated to produce high quality makeup products for makeup artists and professionals. Recently MUFE has created a new line of HD Microfinish Blushes which included 14 shades ranging from natural to bright, light to deep and with undertones of pink or yellow.
HD Microfinish Blush is a new generation of blush that looks, feels and performs up to the standards that professional make up artists require and consumers desire. It naturally sculpts and highlights the
cheeks for a healthy glow
- The unique and innovative “second skin” cream formula shows no texture to appear exceptionally natural-
- The extremely fine granulometry of the formula allows the product to be invisible to the high def camera and the naked eye.
- A combination of mattifying and reflecting powders create a soft focus effect on cheeks to blur imperfections.
- For the most natural feel on skin, the formula is elastic and supple, allowing it to go on smoothly.- Thanks to special evaporating oils that disappear on skin but leave pigments behind, the formula is long-lasting and stays put all day.
The blush comes in similar packaging to MUFE's HD foundation with a pump which is great for sanitary purposes. It is 0.33 fl. oz retailing for $25USD, $29CND.
First off, the application of these blushes require only a very tiny bit of product. When I say tiny, I literally mean half a pump or less. The blush is highly pigmented and the consistency feels like a fluffy mousse cream. It is very easy to apply on the skin using either your hands or a duo fibre/stippling brush. You can use MUFE's HD Blush Brush #55N which was created to use with the line. Dab a small amount of the product onto the back of your hand, lightly tap onto the brush, and stipple it onto the cheeks for a flawless application.
#4 Walk of Shame is a light bumble gum pink that is most suitable for light and cool skin tones. With a light hand, you can get a really nice healthy flush from this color.
#12 First Kiss is a bright apricot/coral color that may look scary at first glance but is beautiful for medium/dark skin tone.
# 13 Smooth Talker is a light peachy color that is suitable for an every day neutral look.You can also use this for light contouring if you don't want to use a dark bronzer.
After doing swatches on this product, I forgot to wipe them off and went to wash my brushes for next week's review. I washed a total of 13 brushes using soap under running water which took me almost 45 minutes. Afterward, I looked down at my hand and realized I still had the swatches on! So to demonstrate to you how long lasting the HD blushes are, I took a couple of pictures.
As you can see the blushes stayed put even after the large amount of water I've already ran it under prior to the picture taken. I even pushed the envelope further and used my fingers to rub across the swatches as hard as I can but nothing budged. Clearly MUFE delivered on the promise that "the formula is long-lasting and stays put all day."
Overall I am thoroughly impressed with Make Up For Ever's new line of HD Microfinish Blush. The quality is superb, it is extremely easy to use/apply, and the lasting power is phenomenal. You may be surprised by the size of the blush but rest assured, it will last for quite some time because only a small amount is required for each use. I made the mistake of using a full pump on the first try and it was too much blush, making it hard to blend and it looked like I had a large pink circle on my face. Please use a light hand and a stippling brush for this product. HD Microfinish Blush can be found exclusively at Sephora or Sephora.com. There are 14 shades to choose from so I bet there will be at least one that's suitable for your skin tone. Check these out and you can use the 15% Beauty Insider coupon on them!
