MUFE Face & body in honey beige # 34 (for medium skin with beige undertones)

After reading rave reviews about this foundation and watching YouTuber Himani on ‘indianglamprincess’ (http://www.youtube.com/user/indianglamprincess) use it for her wedding, I had to get it! I have skin tone similar to Himani and hence ordered the same shade as hers #34 online at Sephora (retails for $39).. The foundation looked quite dark in the bottle compared to my skin tone especially for now as I am still to get some sun/tan.. But, being a light weight foundation, it blends in quite easily into my skin and doesn’t look orange/brown on my face.. just tans it a bit..

The foundation is water based but is waterproof! Brilliant! It gives a natural, dewy finish without an oily appearance.. It does have fragrance to it – almost a rose water scent.. nothing unpleasant.. But people with sensitive skin or those with issues with fragrance might not find this to be their best bet.. I have no issues with this scent.. my skin doesn’t smell particularly rosy after using this.. 🙂

This foundation is great for wedding because it doesn’t flash back and can also be used on exposed parts of your body.. If used correctly, it will not come off on your clothes.. The MUA at MUFE recommends “Apply a fine layer, let dry three minutes, then blot the excess with a tissue before getting dressed.”

The foundation comes packed in a glass bottle – which is not the best when it comes to traveling.. but is great to see how much of it you have left! The bottle comes with a pump which is fantastic to prevent wastage and is more hygienic to use..

Product blended out.. You can see that the foundation has evened out my skin without a mask like effect and also covers my veins to some extent..

Leaves behind a healthy, dewy and natural look to the skin..

Final verdict: Yes, I enjoy this foundation.. and will most likely use it on MY wedding day… 😉
