I can’t resist Make Up For Ever products… I was at The Make Up Show in Dallas this past weekend and picked up a few of the new Artist Rouge Lipsticks as well as the Water Foundation. I’ve worn the foundation for the past two days and thought I’d do a first impressions review for you. The Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation retails for $43 for 1.7 ounces of product. It’s available in 20 different shades.

The foundation is packaged in a frosted glass bottle with a pump dispenser. This foundation is a revamped, modern formula of the original and iconic Make Up For Ever Face + Body Liquid Makeup Foundation. It’s enriched with pro-vitamin B5. The Water Blend Face & Body Foundation hydrates and improves your skin’s elasticity.
What the website says:
Give skin a fresh, dewy glow with this unrivaled formula that feels so lightweight, sheer and comfortable. The quick and easy application makes it ideal for face & body, as the water-based waterproof foundation evens out the complexion to leave a natural-looking, satin finish. Created with 80% water, this long-lasting unique water-gel texture naturally hydrates and blends in evenly for a smooth, flawless look.
I was color matched to the shade Y405 – Golden Honey. I wasn’t sure how to apply it best so I started with my wet It Cosmetics sponge. I felt like the foundation completely disappeared and didn’t make any difference on my face at all. I may need to try it with a dry sponge instead. I ended up using it with a foundation brush. This was perfect. I put on 2 layers of the foundation to get my desired amount of coverage, which is light. I could have continued to add layers if I wanted more coverage.
The foundation is very thin and liquidy. It doesn’t take much effort to blend it into the skin.
Verdict: The Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation will be a definite “go to” product for me. The coverage is beautiful and very natural looking. I love that it’s buildable. It can be worn sheer to medium by adding layers. It’s very lightweight. I don’t feel like there’s anything on my face. It works very well on my aging mature over 50 skin. I didn’t try it as a body foundation because that is not something I wear.
Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation is a star in my book! Have you tried it yet?
