I recently got the new Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation from Frends Beauty. I really liked the old version and I was literally at the very end of the bottle so I thought I would give this a try. They are discontinuing the old one and this is the same price. There are 40 shades available. There are new shade names but it has a conversion chart. My original shade was 117 and my new shade is Y225 as seen below. The idea behind the ultra HD is that it's supposed to be more invisible, more lightweight and natural looking. It's medium coverage and developed for film and TV and "completely invisible under the latest 4K lens". This also comes in a stick formula.
When swatched, this seemed a little more sheer than I liked I actually had to get more product to have a better swatch.
So here is the old formula and the new formula side by side. The left swatch is the original and the right swatch is the new. The colors match perfectly. The old formula is a little thicker and a bit better coverage. It could be thicker because I've had it for a long time so keep that in mind. The new formula is breathable and still has good coverage to be thinner.
The top left picture is no makeup obviously. You can tell I have some redness, my dark circle are alive and kicking, and some little spots. The bottom left is just under eye corrector and one layer of the Ultra HD. On the right is the finished product. I went very minimal so that nothing takes away from the actual foundation. It has some concealer under the eyes and some bronzer and that's about it for the face. It done a great job. I used it over Makeup Forever Hydrating Primer and it really performed well. I only used one layer and I'm very satisfied. This will be great for freelance artists and if you have trouble finding your correct shade in other brands I seriously doubt you'll have that issue with this. It's weightless, it feels like nothing. It doesn't transfer. Just all around really really nice. This formula is a "like skin but better" finish. Which in my mind translates to satin. It's not dewy on me at all. It's not matte though either. I think some people refer to matte as "mask like" or thick like paint. When it's really just no shine/sheen what so ever. Matte formulas are best for those who are particularly oily skin.
The rest of this makeup is:
NARS New Lover gloss stick
MAC Careblend Pressed Powder in Dark
Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep and that's it
Ardell Demi Wispies
Makeup Geek Mocha in the crease
Pretty low key huh?
This hair is the Side Pony Tail Loop that I learned by watching Sam Villa on Youtube. Very easy and he does really awesome videos on everything to do with hair.
