I was super excited when I saw what I was receiving in my Play! I thought it was a gamble for the featured product to be a foundation, especially from a brand that offers over 40 shades. I have been curious about Makeup Forever foundations for a while and they actually sent a shade that was a good match! I liked that the box was so complexion focused and not just a hodge-podge of products – I felt that it represented the theme of Public Display of Complexion perfectly. Here is what came in my bag!
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation in Ivory – I have to say that this little sample has a better pump than some of my full-size foundations. The coverage is listed as medium which I agree with but it was on the sheer side for me, it can be built up but I am not a fan of having to build coverage because I am not very good at it. It was very lightweight and felt and acted more like a tinted moisturizer that improves the over all appearance of the skin rather than a foundation. That being said, it was nice and it wore well over the day but I would not spend $43 on a tinted moisturizer. If you don’t need a lot of coverage or don’t like the feel of heavier foundations, this might be great for you but it is pricey for what it is.
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Skin Booster – I have been wanting to try this product for ages but didn’t really know what it was supposed to do, thought it was expensive and there aren’t a lot of reviews to go by on the website. This is similar to a serum primer that brightens and plumps the skin and it is amazing. I would absolutely buy a full size of this even if it is ridiculously expensive at $41/.4 ounce. I don’t know how it works but my skin looks even smoother than it would with a pore-filling product, it doesn’t make my skin feel too matte and it definitely helps foundation apply flawlessly. I need this in my collection and could see it replacing a few other primers.
BECCA First Light Filter Face Primer – I have used the Backlight Face Primer from this brand before and hated it but am hoping that this one will be better. I don’t know how a lavender product is going to show up on my skin but I will give it a whirl – the full size retails at $38/1 ounce.
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – It seems like this is everyone’s holy grail setting powder, I have not cracked it open yet as I have two setting powders open at the moment but am excited to try it. The sample size is so stinking cute too. This retails at $38/ounce.
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight – I love the concept of liquid highlight that can be mixed with foundation but I never remember to use it. I have at least 3 teenie tubes of liquid highlight and haven’t used a single one. The full size retails at $42/.5 ounce.
Gabrielle by Chanel – We all know that this is my favourite fragrance at the moment and I love that I have something to toss in my bag, I wish they would release a roller ball!
That is it, I thought that the products were great this month. I am pleased that I got to test out products from Makeup Forever and definitely found a new favourite skin prep! What did you get in your bag?
Thanks for stopping by <3
