Product Review: Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder

Because I don’t use any foundation or powder, I was looking for a translucent setting powder just to keep the summer sebum at bay and set as a base for my Too Faced Caribbean In A Compact (review to follow later) which is a powder luminizer/bronzer. It’s not easy to find a truly translucent powder; some claim to be and yet the powder oxidizes and even changes the color of the makeup that goes under or over it. I need a truly colorless powder that even if I sweat it won’t cake on me. Read more…

Product Review: Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush

The Make Up For Ever HD Complexion Collection was developed using high performance formulas to create a new generation of makeup invisible to high definition cameras and the naked eye. The Microfinish Blush is a cream blush that naturally sculpts and highlights the cheeks for a healthy glow. Sericite and cellulose powder create a ‘soft focus’ effect for a radiant complexion.

High Definition (HD) Makeup – Gimmick or Ingenious?

I have heard complaints from so many people, that the ‘HD’ or skin perfecting makeup they use doesn’t do anything. You might have wondered if the term HD really means anything when it comes to makeup; given the trend of everything HD nowadays, sometimes you have to wonder whether the cosmetics companies are using the words loosely.

But from my own experience, HD makeup isn’t necessarily just gimmick – when you have the right products and use them the right way, HD makeup can make you look flawless in a very natural way. Case in point – try Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Blush. HD Microfinish Blush combines mattifying and reflecting powders to create a soft-focus effect for a radiant complexion. Its ultra-fine, second-skin texture blends seamlessly, imparting a healthy glow that’s hard not to notice. Since it is made with evaporating oils, the texture is light and melts right into your skin, which makes the glow very natural. Read more…

Product Review: Make Up For Ever Eye Seal

When it comes to professional grade cosmetics, Make Up For Ever never disappoints. It always has just the right tools and products to get the job done!

The Eye Seal is probably one of the best inventions. It waterproofs any eyeliners or powder makeup without alcohol. Just when I wanted to give up on some of the dark eyeshadow shades that come with the eyeshadow palettes I bought, I discovered this incredible product that can transform any eyeshadow into a waterproof, smear resistant eyeliner.
