MUA Matte Foundation

Sunday, 9 September 2012

A quick review on this amazing £2 foundation from MUA. Yes, I am an MUA addict but I am poor and love make-up a little bit too much. As you can see, it isn't a matte finish at all as I'm dewier than Spring but honestly, I love it. A little bit of powder dusted over the top and it's perfect but it would be great on it's own if you like the dewy look.

So, I'm very pale and I bought the lightest shade. The shade is close to perfect for me and is quite yellow so it takes away the coolness of my skin and covers the red rosacea on my cheeks perfectly. It is very thick and quite difficult to blend but I found using my fingers was easier and buffing in at the end works well.

This has taken over most of my foundations. For £2 for a decent sized tube it is a cut above the rest of the more average foundations like Collection 2000 and even some of Rimmel's. I would liken this to a thicker Wake Me Up foundation and while I would love to see more than three shades, it's the best quality foundation for the price I have ever found.
