I don't know what shade you would be but they don't run dark.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

BEST FOUNDATION EVER!

I use #160 and it's a perfect match. I didn't like the HD powder though, It turns grey-ish on me

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I got my samples of the HD foundation and the Face and Body yesterday at Sephora. I don't really like the F&B because when I have it on it looks exactly the same as my MAC Select Tint tinted moisturizer. The HD foundation is really nice though. It has a silky texture and goes on easily. It has great coverage and in natural daylight looks exactly like my skin. It's not a dewy foundation, which I like. It's also not too matte either, just the right finish that looks like natural skin. I've tried both of them out at home, but tonight I'm going to wear the HD to a baseball game so see how it holds up to the heat and humidity.

For reference I'm an NC40 in Studio Fix powder and Select Tint, and 153 matches me pretty well.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

Does Sephora give out samples like MAC does?

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I'm not sure if Sephora gives out samples, they should! They probably will do it on your face idk if they'll give u a full on tester but you don't know unless you try!

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I looooove this foundation!

I purchased their package at IMATS this year and have been using in on set for a few weeks. You can definitley tell the difference, especially when mixed with their HD Powder.

I haven't worn it myself yet, so I can't tell you how it works for everyday wear.... but I do recommend it!

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

So HD foundation is the hot item right now. Here's what I know and have seen so far:

It's an Oil-free, fragrance free formula. It has a natural finish, so it's neither matte or dewy. It does have a radiance to it, but not a very "wet" look. Great for sensitive skin, all skin types, but oily skin is really going to want to press a loose powder into this foundation, because it doesn't matte down on its own and will be very mobile on your face if you have any surface oil. That was my biggest concern with it.
A great way to combat this is to prime the skin with their All-Matte primer, apply the foundation, and press it into the skin with a powder puff and Super Matte Loose Powder instead of HD powder. The reason I recommend Super Matte instead is because HD Powder is not meant to be a mattifying powder, and SMLP is. Oily skin needs those extra oil absorbing properties that Super Matte provides that HD doesn't have. You'll still get a flawless shade, flawless coverage, and a natural look that doesn't look heavy or cakey. You'll just be able to work a matte finish and not worry about it sliding around during the day.

Also, Women of Color should really try the No 4 HD Primer (it's orange.) The orange tint looks really deceiving and scary, but it's great because it primes the skin, it's slightly hydrating (but not oily) and the orange color counteracts discoloration on the skin and warms up the complexion to fight off ashiness.

Fairer skins will really love the No 1 (green) or No 5 (blue) primers. Obviously, for those of us who are okay with basic color theory, the green primer will counter act excess redness in the skin. It's not going to make the red disappear immediately, but it will prevent the redness from coming through the foundation, and you won't have to use as much. The pale blue primer is a brightener. Sometimes fairer skins tend to be dull because the skin can be thin or fragile, so the blue primer brightens up the complexion without making it look unnatural.

For those of you who want to incorporate this foundation into your kit, but are concerned about their being so many shades, it's really very easy to mix because it's got such a great fluid texture. There are 25 shades, but you could easily mix up 5 to 7 of them and get a great range, especially if you blend in some Flash Colors.

I recently went to Master Class with MUFE's national artists J'Me and David, and the purpose of our MC was to learn to create flawless complexion with ANY product. They decided to focus on flash color and star powder because it was the easiest. They gave us each a random F&B foundation color, No. 0 Perfecting Primer, regardless of our model's skintone, and 5 flash colors (please don't ask me for the numbers lol) Pale green, pale blue, yellow, salmon-orange, and dark brown. Our "mission" was to use the foundation we were given, plus the flash colors to mix up a custom shade and apply it to our model. J'Me did a demo on me, she used Face & Body #6 (not even CLOSE!!!) and blended in the yellow, salmon-orange, and dark brown Flash Colors. It looked flawless.

You can do the exact same thing with HD Foundation, No 0 HD Primer, and the same 5 flash colors, that way you don't have to buy a million foundations to match everybody. It sounds crazy to do because flash colors are so heavy, but you're just using them for the pigment to create undertones and depth, the HD foundation gives you the flawless texture. It's brilliant!


Sorry for going on and on, but getting education on this brand and these particular products (because EVERYBODY wants HD Foundation) is really exciting to me =)

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I know you've already bought it but I just wanted to suggest Makeup Alley to you. Not sure if you know about it, but it's a website where real people like us can go to rate products and see the feedback for products they'd like you try.

I absolutely LOVE that website. It has saved me a lot of money. Haha. Have fun, it can be addicting.

I have really fair skin with a hint of rosacea and I love the HD foundation and found one that matches my skin color perfectly. Do you think I need to try a primer or flash color to counteract the redness?

Go for the green HD primer. You'll love it and it's really going to help you get a great even coverage without having to layer the foundation over your redness. Ask for a sample if you're still on the fence.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I just picked this up today. I'm a NC35-37 in studio fix fluid and the girls at Sephora matched me with #140 (Soft Beige). I'm also trying NARS oil free in St. Tropez and we'll see which one works better on me! I haven't had a good foundation in ages, so I sure hope this works!
post #76 of 531

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

Oh and the HD microfinish powder I got with the foundation is very soft and silky but it's WHITE. They assured me that it goes on translucent but it kind of reminds me of baby powder and I am hoping it doesn't wash me out. If I like this on me, I will probably go back and purchase the kabuki brush as well.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

MAC PIXIE04 i need your professional advice as to what foundation would you suggest for me in MUFE? i like a matte finish. i have oily t-zone. i currently wear nw40 in mac. Can you help a sistah out please? PM me if you would so that way i get the info please

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I am an NC45 in Studio Fix power and HD #173 is a perfect match for me.
post #79 of 531

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

Ok so for someone who has tried both Face and Body and the HD, which do you like better for very light coverage? I have face and body and absolutely love it b/c it's very light and doesn't look like makeup at all. I haven't tried the HD, and am on the fence because I haven't even made a dent in my bottle of F&B but am now lemming for the HD, lol.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

Is the HD Microfinish Powder anything special?

It says 100% silica, is that's all that is in it or do they just mean the silica in it is 100% real?

Either way, what do you girls think? I want something thats going to make my face look almost photoshopped when I take pictures as far as smooth/evenness

If you like sheer coverage, stick with your F&B. Also, HD foundation isn't waterproof/sweat resistant like F&B is. The HD Foundation isn't LE, it'll be around permanently. Finish your F&B first, and then if you're still wanting to try HD, go to a Sephora and get a sample.

It should be fine, it's oil-free and fragrance-free, so it's non irritating. My trainers told me it's perfect for sensitive skins and acne-prone skins.

Both. The HD Powder is made of 100% mineral silica, not synthetic materials. It doesn't have any talc or starch or anything, which is why it feels so silky when you touch it. I would definitely try it out, it gives the most beautiful finish, especially when applied with a stippling brush or nylon powder brush.

Girl! you are always so helpful. Seriously! Thankyou

So, I have:
NC15 (mac shade) colored skin.
Somewhat oily, not terrible, but enough that I can classify my skin as oily.
Some acne and an overall tint of redness.

From what you said, I'm going to consider buying:

1. The green primer No.1 (im so excited about this, its the kind of thing ive been looking for)
2. All-Matte primer (I love those matte primers)
3. HD Foundation
4: Super Matte Powder

What would you rec for under eye concealers and acne concealers?

Thankyou so much.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

MAC Pixie - you have provided such wonderful information in this thread - thank you! I think I am going to give this foundation a whirl - I just got the MAC Mineralize Satin Finish - but it did not agree with my skin so back it goes (a shame because it looks beautiful on). I love many other MUFE products so I am keen to try this.

Thank you again for such an informative and helpful post!

Ive never tried it before! Im very excited.
As of right now I use Mac studio fix fluid and powder...
and that isnt working. The coverage is PERFECT and exactly what I want,
but its not agreeing with my skin.

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

Anyone know what shade might work for very pale skin with yellow undertones (NC15 or lighter)? I'm thinking 117?

Re: MUFE High Def Foundation!

I just tried the powder today and I love it! It's very different form Mineral Veil. It feels like silk when you put it on. It just disappears and feel amazing! My skin is oily and I still had to do a mid-day degreasing LOL, as usual, but this powder gives a really nice finish. I can't wait to try the foundation!
