Here's my problem with MUFE HD Foundation:
It settles into every imperfection on my skin. It makes my chin and upper lip and the surrounding area flaky and dry, no matter how much I moisturize before (I exfoliate, put on the Lumene Vitamin C cocktail serum, AND La Mer cream, there should really be no excuse to dry, patchy skin..)
On top of that, I feel the color is still a bit too light. Although they have lots of color selection, I still can't seem to find one that suits me! I feel like its a bit ashy. I bought it in 125.
I tried different techniques. I used extra EXTRA moisturizer. I applied it with fingers. I applied it with a foundation brush. Nothing has worked.
I explained all of this to the MA at Sephora and thats when she suggested Cover Fx Skin Prep Primer.
The description taken from Sephora:
What it is:
A nourishing treatment and priming serum for the face.
What it is formulated to do:
Skinprep FX perfects the skin's texture for optimal foundati
on coverage. The formula helps to facilitate foundation, blending, coverage and wear.
What else you need to know:
Skinprep FX will reduce skin inflammation and is tolera
ted by the most sensitive skin. It is oil-free, fragrance free, and will not clog pores.
I decided to give this a try and took a sample of it home. I used it today and saw a slight improvement. Less flaky, less dry. But only slightly. I do feel that it might be the best solution though. I barely put any of it on, for fear that it might brea k me out. Tomorrow I will put more on, and hopefully will see an even better improvement.
I took a few snapshots (with my shitty ca mera) just to see how my skin looks in pictures and I have to say that it doesn't look tooooo bad. (As you can see, it doesn't quite cover up all of my acne scars, but I didn't use any concealer either)
