Make Up Forever HD Foundation review #173

After a very busy week, I have finally found time to get this review up on Youtube. It's the famous HD foundation by MUFE. I am in the Shade #173 (For reference, am NC44/45 and a little NC50 from Mac & Cadiz from NARS)

This shade does lean towards the yellow tones. Blends beautifully.

It does give a flawless finish and photographs well. No white ghostly flash backs. By the way, these pictures were not retouched in any way.

This picture taken after 4 hours of wear. Very oily and looks like I had this foundation on for the whole day.

- Very good match to my skin tone.
- Did not turn orange on my skin.
- Blends very smoothly.
- Does give good coverage depending on how many layers applied.
- The consistency of the foundation is just right. Not too watery nor is it thick.

- Gives a very dewy finish, I have dewy skin and this just exaggerates and makes it look oily instead.
- Settles on smile lines and other facial lines.

I have a love hate thing going on with this foundation. Foundation looks great on my face when taking pictures but I just cannot go out with it as it will become very oily after just 1 hour of application. I have to use the HD primer before applying this foundation. I am not sure if I would repurchase this given that it is a good color match for me.

Cost : HKD 420 (Retail price) however, I did get a makeup artist discount.

Here is my review & application videos on Youtube.

Thank for your time everyone!


  1. Let me give you the best advice about using MUFE. If you set it with Banana Powder of Topaz, it will not look like this after 4 hours. I have been using it and I must say that I have not had any issues with my skin oily like this at all. Also, another great tip is to cover your skin with Milk of Magnesia for added absorption of the oil in your skin. I promise either one of the tips will work and you will see a difference. I am a MUA and business owner so I have tried, tested and remain HAPPY with my MUFE! :) Hope this helps!!

  2. Wow you looked great! :) Do you buy your make up foundation on beauty supply online stores?

  3. search mufe 173 on ebay, the first tab shows the foundation brand new on sale for 15 pounds!
