Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi Use Powder

Saturday, January 25, 2014
Hi folks!

Thanks to Emi from Project Swatch, I was recently able to try the Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi Use Powder. I have shade #117, Golden Ivory which is a good but not perfect match (I think 118 might be a little more suitable).

It comes in a compact with a compartment for the sponge and a decent sized mirror. It's seems reasonably sturdy to me, I've tossed it in my purse and had it bounce around for a few days without it breaking.

MUFE Pro Finish is suitable for wet or dry use as both foundation and a setting powder. I've experimented with a bit, and I prefer it as a setting powder. In particular, I like to use it to set tinted moisturizer as additional cover up for blemishes. With wet application, I find that a lot of foundation seems to be wasted caked into the sponge and it can look a bit streaky.

The powder isn't the most finely milled powder I have ever tried but does have pretty good coverage for a powder. My skin is not as oily as it once was and I found that this powder was a bit drying. Though it photographed really well, it wasn't flattering to my dry areas in person. In the picture above, I've applied it wet and then dusted a bit lightly on top to set. I prefer liquid foundation for my t zone, I find that my pores look better that way.

One thing that I liked was that even when used wet, the surface of the foundation didn't change very much. It hardened a little bit but could be brushes away pretty easily.
