Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation Stick

Hey guys! Thanks for coming back. Today I’m going to be talking about the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation Stick.

I’m not the type of person that reaches for a full coverage foundation daily, but when I do, I’m grabbing a stick foundation. Why? Stick foundations are usually easier to use than liquid or powder foundation, they glide on the skin beautifully and leave you with a smooth, creamy base.

Having textured skin, too much blending can sometimes be a bad thing. I find using stick foundation minimizes my need for blending as it melts into the skin with ease.

The product

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation Stick was developed for photography and film. This means that the formula was created to look beautiful and natural on today’s 4k lenses. It’s advertised as a medium to full coverage, hydrating foundation with a “second-skin texture that looks just like skin.” I would say that’s pretty spot on. Although it masks all my redness, it feels lightweight.

I have two shades here. One for Winter and one for Summer. Yes I’m that dedicated to this foundation. I need to make sure that I can wear it year round. The darker shade also works as a contour stick in the winter months where I’m approaching paper white territory.

I realize that this can be seen as completely unnecessary when a product goes for CAD 52 dollars but when you like a product, you like a product and it’s as simple as that.

What do I love most?

Not only can I apply this at home or on the go, I can throw it in my bag and touch up virtually anywhere. Yeah I’m the type of person that does my makeup on public transport so I can sleep in 30 minutes longer. It’s extremely travel friendly and fool proof.

It’s creamy and thick, You can choose the type of coverage you need by how heavy handed you choose to be. It can be used as a foundation or concealer.

It’s buildable and doesn’t look cakey when layered on so I can put a light layer all over my face and add product on to the areas that need more coverage (my cheeks and chin.)

Are there any cons?

That’s actually a good question because I’ve been going on and on about all the things that I love.

I do have to say that there are a few minor cons. First of all, the price. I bought the first one because one of my good friends highly recommended it and after she applied it on me, I could see why she raved about it as much as she did. You do get 0.44 oz of product which is almost double what both Anastasia Beverly Hills stick foundation and the Hourglass stick foundation have and they’re all up there in pricing.

The product does… How do I say this… Melt. This might be because I have an extremely oily T zone and I have issues with the longevity of foundations. I know I’m not the only one. Foundation usually just breaks up around my T zone but this foundation just moves around so much, if I try to blot, it basically just wipes off.

The only thing that helps this is baking. So If you have normal to dry skin, you’re safe. If you have oily skin, set this like your life depends on it. Although you may be using a ton of powder to set it in place, the pay off is beautiful and not powdery at all. You still have that creamy texture, you just need to put more work into it.

Take away

If you have the money to invest in a good stick foundation, this is definitely the one. Whether you’re using it on camera or as a regular daily foundation, this will do you good.

Something I do also want to touch on is shade range. Although I’m a white woman, I do get upset when brands don’t come out with shades for all women. I applaud Make Up Forever for coming out with so many shades and constantly working on adding shades to their existing lines.

Have you tried it out? What do you think of the product and was the shade a good match? Let me know!
