Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Review & Photos

This has been on my wishlist for a long while now, but it is not as easily accessible here in the UK, while my mum was on holiday I very kindly asked her to pick this up for me as I knew she would be going near a Sephora. I also wanted to try this out as a possible foundation to use when I get married, here's my thoughts.
Sephora now ship to the UK
This retails for $42 on the Sephora website which converts to around £25 which is pricey for a foundation, but this is a high end foundation that is more affordable than some luxury foundations.
This comes boxed with a detailed description of the foundation on the box. The bottle itself is plastic, which I didn't expect as I always thoughts it looked like glass from photos I had seen and the famous Revlon dupe for this is glass. The bottle has a hygienic pump dispenser and lid so you can control how much you pump out.
The foundation contains 30ml of product and comes in 25 shades to suit your skintone, on the box it describes the foundation as giving a natural flawless finish which is oil free and diffuses light.
I used the shade N117, I applied the foundation with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush, the foundation had a medium consistency and the colour match was perfect for my skin tone.
This is a full coverage consistency foundation as it was hard to blend in, but it covered all my redness perfectly and is defiantly buildable to achieve the desired coverage you like. On a side note I think this foundation would apply better and easier with a damp sponge or Beauty Blender as it was quite hard to apply with the brush.
I didn't use a primer or setting spray when testing this foundation out as I like to show you how it wears in it's truest form. For me this stayed amazingly well all day a full 10 hours to be precise and it felt so light weight on the skin despite it's thick consistency. By the end of the day it still looked flawless and dewy as when I applied it that morning, if I was being critical I would say a tiny bit faded on my nose but to be honest I cannot fault it's staying power!
Overall Thoughts
Upon review this is defiantly up in my top 5 of amazing foundations list! Number one is my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua but I'd say I think this has knocked it of the top spot, it did everything I wanted a foundation to do including great longevity and buildable coverage that gives a flawless dewy finish. As I mentioned before this would apply better with a damp sponge or beauty blender to get the best results. My only con is the price, this is a little expensive at £25 but not nearly as pricey as the Chanel foundation's which come in at the £35 mark! If your looking for a wonder foundation that ticks all the above boxes and your willing to spend that little extra then this could be for you!
I award the Make Up Forever HD Foundation 4.9 out of 5
