MAKE UP FOR EVER and I have been having a little bit of a love affair this year, so I was really excited to try their new Pro Finish Multi-Use Foundation. I’m not normally a huge fan of powder foundations – I’m definitely more of a liquid foundation kind of girl – but if you’re looking for a light to medium coverage foundation that’s easily portable, this one might be right up your alley.
Like almost all of MAKE UP FOR EVER’S products, it’s available in a huge selection of shades, which is fabulous. I’m so glad we’ve come such a long way from the days when foundations were available in five or so different colors. That was the worst, right? You can apply Pro Finish with the sponge included in the compact in two ways – wet or dry. Applying it dry gives you more coverage and a matte finish, wet gives you sheerer coverage and a satin finish. The coverage is definitely buildable, but I’d say if you’re looking for serious coverage, I’d still go with a liquid foundation over this – Pro Finish is more medium coverage (at least on me). I love the texture of this powder and how easily and perfectly it blends into my skin (make sure you get color matched to ensure that you buy the perfect shade for your skin tone). On me, it lasts almost all day so there’s really no need to reapply, but if you’re heading out for the night after work, it’s easy to just toss the compact in your bag for touch ups on the go. I do wish it had an SPF in it, but since I always wear sunscreen anyway, that really isn’t too much of a sticking point. The love affair continues!
