Adventures in Blogging | MAKE UP FOR EVER Spring 2015 Preview

9 March, 2015


IMG_3605Every now and then, as a blogger I have the opportunity to attend some pretty awesome events.  This past Saturday was one of those events when I was able to attend the MAKE UP FOR EVER Spring 2015 Preview here in Toronto.  I’m not kidding guys, I pretty much came out of hibernation to attend this event, and what an event it was.  The event was held at the Deanery at St. James Cathedral and it was a stunning, light and airy venue with floor to ceiling windows that let in a lot of natural light and let us bloggers really explore the products that MAKE UP FOR EVER was showcasing.

Make Up Forever HD Blush in 510 Raspberry

10 March, 2014

MUFE HD Blush 510 Raspberry 6


Now lord knows that I love me some blush.  Like I really, really love me some blush.  As a result, I have a pretty large collection of blush that continuously grows at a rather alarming rate.  Part of being a lover of blush means that it is pretty hard to surprise or impress you with new blush products.  So when the new MUFE HD Blushes were launched last month I was super skeptical.  A blush that applies like a cream but wears like a powder?  Get outta town!

Fast forward a few weeks after having picked up one of the blushes at my local Sephora, and I am so tempted to go back and own them all.  I don’t know why I was skeptical.  I mean this HD Blush is from MUFE and I have never tried a product of theirs that didn’t live up to it’s claims.

The blush goes on just like a cream and it really does wear like a powder.  It is highly pigmented, but when applied properly you are able to build the colour up to the desired intensity.  I personally use a stippling brush for application and a kabuki brush for blending in the colour.  Once this blush is on the skin, it’s not going anywhere.  I have worn it several times now, both over liquid and powder foundation, and on bare skin and each time I got about 8-9 hours of wear out of the blush.  There was absolutely no need for any kind of reapplication of the blush at any point during the day.

I purposely chose the darkest colour I could find just to be able to test it out on darker and lighter skin.  510 Raspberry, is just that, a nice deep raspberry shade.  In the swatch you see below it is applied super heavily for photographs, and that is not how I would apply or wear it on a day to day basis.  I also applied it on my sister who is an NC30 to my NC50 and on her skin tone it came out as a nice rosy, youthful flush to her cheeks.

And can we talk about just how easy it is to depot this bad boy?  There is a pin hole in the bottom of the compact that allows you to just slip a pin in and push the colour right out.  You can then slip it into your palette, which I love.  I think it is just a bit smaller than a MAC pro palette blush, so it may not fit into one of those palettes,  but it should fit into any kind of Z palette very easily.

Really if you are a blush lover, you need to own at least one of the MUFE HD Blushes.  It will be a welcome addition to your makeup bag.
