MUFE Mat Velvet + Foundation Help!!!!
Hi! I have a few questions about the MUFE Mat Velvet+ Foundation. First off, I currently use Revlon Colorstay foundation in the shade Buff. I am content with it, but not HAPPY, if that makes sense. I was wondering how MUFE categorizes thier foundation colors. Is it like MAC, where pink undertones are considered NW and yellow undertones are considered NC? What I mean is, where makeup forever says "for light skin with yellow undertones", does that mean the foundation itself is a yellow-y color to MATCH your natural skin tone, or does that mean the foundation will be pink-y in color to COMBAT yellowness in skin that is otherwise more pink? I really would like to purchase this foundation, but am confused by what I have heard on youtube reviews about the coloring system, so to speak.
Also, how is the staying power of this foundation?
Thanks so much.
MUFE Mat Velvet is a great foundation. MUFE has a "Shade-Finder" feature on their main page that will help you determine the correct color for your skintone. Also, each shade has a description of whether it has pink undertones, yellow undertones, etc. But I would suggest using the "Shade-Finder" because it is very helpful. You can find the "Shade-Finder" at: http://sephora.com/browse/brand_hierarchy.jhtml?br
I hope this helps.
First off let's clarify. having problems with redness is not the same as having a red undertone. You can have an olive, red or pink undertone and have issues with redness. Typically, you're not expected to cover your redness with foundation. There are moisturizers/primers that do that.
So to answer your question. if a MUFE foundation says "for light skin with yellow undertones" it means just that. If you are light skinned with yellow undertones then that's the foundation for you. Besides the best way to combat redness is to use its color opposite (green). Plus if let's say you had redness in your cheeks that you wanted to hide, but your face and neck has a pink undertone, selecting a foundation with a yellow undertone would just look unnatural on you because it just isn't the correct color.
I wear MUFE HD foundation in #175 and it is pretty good. I can't say it's the best foundation I've ever tried but it is indeed great for those occasions where a lot of pics are going to be taken.
I have an oily t-zone and I live in a tropical climate so it wasn't the best purchase choice for me but in cooler, drier climates I can def. use it.
The staying power is pretty incredible and it hardly needs to be touched up. The coverage is light-medium to medium and it is buildable to a point...I don't really think you can achieve full coverage with this foundation without it feeling very thick.
I would say test out a sample if you can but it is one brand that has a lot of shades to choose from which is pretty fantastic.
