Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup #32 Review


Shade

#32 is called Alabaster Beige. According to Sephora's product page this shade is made for light skin tones with yellow undertones. I think this is better suited for light-medium skin tones than light skin tones. The tone of this shade is very nice. It's not super yellow and has a nice beige hue. I think for me, #32 is a tiny bit too light right now and #34 (Honey Beige) would be a closer match for summer. You can see Make Up For Ever's full range of shades HERE

This is swatched on the underside of my arm, which is significantly lighter than the rest of my arm and my face, so that you can see the shade. As you can see, it's not a super light color, but it is what I'd consider to be a light-medium. You can see how this shade worked on my face below.


Application

This applied really nicely and easily smoothed into my skin. Consistency-wise it is a tiny bit thinner than some I've worked with, but thicker than some of the thinnest ones. It's not runny, but not extremely thick--if that's helpful.

Coverage

Coverage is meant to be light, and while it does provide light coverage, it effectively evened out the appearance of the entire surface of my face. I did find that with slightly heavier application in precise spots (like the redness around my nose) I was able to get slightly more coverage, but keep in mind this is not meant to be a medium- or full-coverage foundation. Things such as dark beauty marks will show through with regular application. This is the type of foundation I personally like best for summer.

Finish

This has a slightly dewy finish, so if you want a completely matte finish you'll want to mattify it. I personally like a dewy finish for summer so I love the way this sets. 

Wear

This wore really well for me. It is very light-weight and not uncomfortable in any way. The one thing I will say I wasn't overly thrilled with is the scent. I really dislike scents in foundations, personally. Thankfully, once dry the scent is very subtle, but keep in mind the scent was pretty strong to my sensitive nose during application. This foundation did not crack around my nose, which is sometimes a problem for me. It didn't overly cling to my dry trouble-spots as much as many foundations I've tried either. 

Now for the moment of truth...

Make Up For Ever Face and Body Liquid Foundation in #32.
This blended flawlessly into my skin with a foundation brush, making it easier to make it work for me despite being a hair lighter than I would normally go right now for a perfect match. As always, these photos have not been edited in an way aside from being cropped and watermarked so you can see how this really performs.

Here's another shot for good measure so you can see how it looks from another angle. I'm actually wearing MUFE Smoky Extravagant mascara in these shots as well! I recently reviewed it HERE. I'm also wearing a light application of Tarte Tipsy, Mirenesse Airbrush Soft Focus Blush Highlighter in Nude Camelia, matte bronzer for contour, and Mirenesse 27 hr Inside Out Kohl in Osiris.

Final Thoughts

I really like the overall effect of this foundation; for having such light coverage it really does give you a super even appearance once applied. I also love how easy it was to work with! As I mentioned above, the shade is really complementary, despite being a little light for my face right now. The only down-side to me is the fragrance. Perhaps MUFE will release an unscented version in the future! The scent is definitely heavier while wet and more subtle once dry. If you're not sensitive you may not notice it. The price is very comparable to many high-end foundations I have used and reviewed, so that's also great for those looking for foundations in this price-range. This foundation does contain parabens and I know for some that's problematic, but if it's not then definitely consider giving this a try! 

Overall, I am incredibly impressed by how effective this foundation is while offering light-weight coverage. Really! How has MUFE created something that is both semi-sheer, but complexion even-ing?! Magical! I definitely think this is a great product for those that don't want or need heavier coverage and it is absolutely a great summer foundation. 

Have you tried Make Up For Ever Face and Body Foundation? If not, will you be?

    1. I've not tried MUFE HD yet, so I'm not sure how they compare aside from coverage, but with good prep this is definitely a good foundation for those of us with dry skin ;) I always cleanse/tone, moisturize, and prime prior to wearing foundation. It helps a good deal!
