While Make Up For Ever’s colour cosmetics are excellent – rich pigments and long-lasting performance – its base makeup range is pretty good too.
Generally, MUFE’s foundations are also long-wearing and evens out the complexion without a cakey-ness.
Like every major beauty brand, MUFE now has its own cushion compact foundation, a South Korean invention.
Soaked in liquid foundation, the cushion – which pretty much works like an ink pad – offers quick and easy coverage, as compared to a powder or cream compact.
The UV Bright Cushion gives skin additional moisture, as well as a broad spectrum sun protection factor of 35 PA +++ (with titanium dioxide which is gentler on easily-irritated skin).
It also instantly brightens the complexion with a soft glow and dewiness.
Available in five shades, the cushion offers light to medium coverage.
With just one pump of the cushion, the applicator picked up enough liquid foundation to cover my entire face.
It is also long-lasting. One application in the morning lasted me the entire day in the office, and I did not have to touch-up.
Easy to blend and lightweight, the foundation did not oxidise and turn my skin orange either.
Priced at $64 for a compact and two refills, the UV Bright Cushion is available at Sephora.
