Happy Saturday!! Today I will be reviewing Make Up For Ever High Definition concealer that I purchased at IMATS last September. I can’t remember how much it was at IMATS but this concealer retails for $42 in Australia.
According to MUFE
The HD Concealer covers imperfections and creates a “soft focus” effect around the eye area for a natural, radiant look. Its soft silicone applicator enables high precision application. The HD Concealer is available in 14 shades to suit every skin tone.
A bit hard to see in the photo, the applicator tip is a flexible silicone spatula. To get the product out, you turn the click wheel at the bottom.
What I like about this concealer:
- Coverage is great
- Long lasting
- Shade 325 fits my skin tone perfectly
What I found annoying about this concealer is the packaging. As you can see from the above the applicator is a flexible silicone spatula. There seems to be a delay between clicking the wheel and product coming out. I would be clicking and clicking, not see a single thing and then it suddenly comes exploding out. I also found that the tip dries up and you end up wasting more product. Would I be purchasing this again? Doubt it, only if they change the packaging.
Have you tried Make Up For Ever High Definition Concealer? Any thoughts?
I hope everyone has been staying cool because tomorrow is going to be a scorching 41 degrees in Melbourne!! Drink plenty of fluids and use sunscreen if you are heading out!
I have been using Make Up For Ever’s HD powder for the last two weeks. I’m a big fan of setting powders. I purchased this at IMATS last year during one of those random spending moments I occasionally suffer from. There has been a lot of mixed reviews about this setting powder. Personally, I think it’s quite good and does what it’s supposed to do.
According to MUFE “The HD Powder is a unique, extremely fine powder available in one universal shade to make the skin absolutely radiant. It sets the foundation and matifies the skin without changing its natural contours. Consisting of mineral silica powder, its talc-free formula is non-drying. Its universal translucent shade matches all skin tones. The HD Powder can be worn alone or applied over foundation“.
What I like about the Make Up For Ever HD Powder:
- The powder itself feels very silky, fine & lightweight.
- Sets makeup well and matifies skin.
- Did not cause me to break out.
- Talc free – I was reading that talc can cause irritation and dryness because it absorbs moister from the skin. So it’s better to pick products that are talc free.
It is important to note that this is a silica powder which means that it will reflect white in flash photography. The Make Up For Ever HD powder retails for $48, a bit on the pricey side in my opinion. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, I have used Australis Ready Set Go Finishing Powder which achieved the same results for a quarter of the price.
