Review: Makeup Forever HD Foundation

Continuing my review on the Makeup Forever brand, here is the foundation that I'm currently using. I have been holding back on buying this foundation for the longest time. So, I saved up some money, went to the counter and finally bought it.

Makeup Forever High Definition Foundation 
Invisible Cover Foundation (Shade #118 Flesh)

Availability: Makeup Forever Counters
Price: Rp 450,000
Size: 30 ml

The box is the same as the HD primer, all black and elegant. The foundation has the same pump dispenser as the primer. The bottle is a clear plastic container with a black cap on top.

My shade is #118 Flesh, which in the description states 'for light skin with beige undertones'. the makeup artist picked the shade for me and it matched my skin tone. 

I use a slightly wet sponge to stipple and blend the foundation on my face. It felt light as a feather, without any clinging sensation. I feel as if I wasn't wearing any foundation on my face. 

The redness on my face is neutralized and my skin tone looks even. It also succeeded in minimizing the look of my sun spot on my left cheek. It is not fully hidden, but slightly reduced in appearance. This foundation provides medium coverage that you can build layer by layer. However, I do feel that on applying the third layer, it looks cakey on my face. So far, I didn't have any bad reactions to this foundation. 

Overall, I really like this foundation, especially the lightweight feeling and natural look it produces. The pump dispenser is also a plus for me.

  1. I actually just read that the foundation doesn't work so well on dry skin (which I have) so I'm waiting for the weather to get warmer so that my skin improves and I can try it out. Can't wait, it sounds amazing.
