The same day I had ordered Nars Sheer Glow, I also ordered MUFE HD.
Why order 2 foundations at the same time, you will ask. Why not? I guess I had been wanting to try these 2 for a long time and since the reviews were so good, I kind of expected to be disappointed by at least one of them, and then I'd have the other one. Silly, uh?
Courtesy to the local MUFE online store, I had to wait over 2 weeks to get my order, and in the meantime I had fallen in love with the Nars foundation (which had arrived from abroad in 3 days, hum) and didn't see the point in trying HD anymore. But you know me, I'd do everything for my foundation reviews encyclopedia. So I gave it a try.
First things first, I looked at the packaging: this one comes with a pump, and that's always nice and handy. The bottle is transparent, so you can always see how much product is left, that's convenient too. It's not glass and doesn't feel easily breakable, which is good when you're clumsy or still asleep.
I applied with a Mac 190 and I thought it felt a bit heavy. But I tried again with a Mac 182 kabuki, which is the brush I usually use for all liquid foundations, and it worked much better since I didn't need as much product.
The finish is very nice, not totally dewy but certainly not flat matte. The coverage is medium and very easy to build up to full.
The result was flawless and beautiful. Probably as beautiful as Nars Sheer Glow. Damned, here I was with very similar products that I liked a lot! Once applied, the only difference was in the shade. Since MUFE HD in 117 was reported to be very yellow, I was afraid it would be too much for me and ordered 115. This is a fair beige with a tiny bit of pink in it but it's still a very good match for me, slightly less warm than Sheer Glow in Gobi.
But I finally found a slight difference: HD starts looking oily on my t-zone quicker than Sheer Glow. It still lasts a reasonable 6 hours before I need to touch up with powder, but since the Nars lasts particularly long on me (which is great), HD doesn't do as well.
This being said, it still is an excellent foundation, something I can rely on if I have a long day or if I am going to be photographed (don't know how Nars performs in HD pictures) and I would definitely recommend it. I am glad I have it even if Nars works slightly better for me, because it's really a brilliant product.
