Make up forever Foundation
 Product No. & Shade: #125
Weight/Price: 1 oz. for £27.00
Made in: U.S.A.
Where to buy: PAM, MU boutique
Product Description: 
The MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion products use innovative formulas to create a new generation of make up which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye. The HD Foundation is an oil-free medium-to-full coverage liquid foundation which covers skin imperfections, while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life. Its extremely fine texture is supple and easy to apply. Enriched with moisturizing agents, it leaves the skin soft and radiant. It is available in a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones. 

Personal Experience: Make up forever HD foundation is hyped up in the beauty world. I personally went to buy this for a bridal trial on someone and saw a lot of positive reviews on this product. I found it difficult to work with at first, in store I just used my fingers and was amazed about the smooth skin it gave me. However when I went home, I tried using the MAC 190 brush to apply the foundation and it made my application look cakey. The MAC 187 worked better, but most of the foundation absorbed onto the brush. The best brush to use this foundation is E.L.F studio blush brush; it gave me such a natural flawless finish. Coverage is medium to buildable, and the foundation comes with a pump, I only use 2-3 pumps for my face. The consistency of the foundation is slightly runny; it also makes my face looks hydrated throughout the day. I say the finish looks matt and I use MAC prep and prime powder on top. The major downside of using this product was it clogs pores badly the next day my shin will pop up with pimples. It does look fantastic on camera both in Flash photography and film. Looking good comes at a price, it is quite expensive for foundation.

Product love rating    

Pros:✓flawless face
✓no need for concealer, great coverage 
Cons :✗ clogs pores
✗ hard to work with 

Would I re-purchase again? Maybe, the only thing that puts me off is the pimples I get the next day.

I was disappointed with this foundation and actually swapped it on Makeupalley, lol! It just didn't last on my skin, and made me look a bit oily... Great review! xxx

@stephanie - I've forgot to mention it started to slip around the nose area. It's a hard foundation to work with
