Happy Saturday! Taking a minute this morning to post about my new concealer that has quickly reached Holy Grail product status: Makeup Forever’s Full Cover Extreme Camouflage Cream. I heard about this from Sam over at http://finallyindigo.wordpress.com/. He posted a great review and I decided to pick up a sample of the stuff at Sephora a couple of weeks ago.
My makeup life is changed forever. I have not found another concealer with the coverage and staying power that MUFE Full Cover offers. Seriously, it covers EVERYTHING. I only use the tiniest amount to cover under my eyes, around my nose, and any random spots I get. This doesn’t cry off, cake, flake, move, sweat off, sleep off, get oily, or oxidize…it stays put from 6 am when I apply it until 11 pm when I wash it off. I picked up the full size (.5 oz) at Sephora last weekend and couldn’t be happier.
MUFE Full Cover passed the sensitive skin test for me, I have not broken out because of it and it hasn’t made my skin more oily. Another plus is that it comes in 12 shades, and they flatter different undertones so you should be able to find a match. For reference, I’m a shade 4 in the concealer and a shade 20 in their Matt Velvet + foundation.
Although it’s very creamy, I find that I have to work fast with this concealer. Once it’s out of the tube, it gets drier/thicker the longer you wait; I’m sure this has to do with being long lasting/waterproof. This isn’t a deterrent for me though, because the finish is absolutely perfect. Just remember to close the tube correctly and as fast as possible.
At $30, it’s not cheap. I do think it’s worth it if you’re looking for a long lasting concealer that covers everything and stays on through anything; it also photographs beautifully. As I build a bigger kit for my freelance makeup artistry work, I plan on building up a collection of these to use on clients. Because I only need the tiniest amount, this tube should last me upwards of 4-6 months. I’ve been covering spots with it and buffing MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural over it.
Overall, MUFE’s Full Cover concealer gets an A++++ in my book. Ah-mazing. What’s your favorite full coverage concealer?
Off I go on an Ikea and British pub adventure with the bestie. Hope you’re having a fab weekend!
