Colour Correcting & Concealing Made Easy with Make Up For Ever

MUFE, Review

I admit that I don’t do much colour correcting on myself and usually just hope for my foundation and concealer to mask the redness and discoloration I have on my face. Sometimes it does help but in most cases, those areas still shine through. I finally decided to challenge myself to try to do more colour correcting when I received Make Up For Ever’s new Ultra HD Underpainting Color Correction Palette.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Underpainting Color Correction Palette

It’s an all-in-one colour correcting cream palette with curated shades, depending on your skin tone, to give you an even, primed complexion that is long lasting. It contains a signature combination of coated pigments, powders and a blend of emollient oils that provides a second skin, seamless effect. The collection comes in 6 shade options that range from Very Fair (what I’m reviewing here) to Deep and each palette comes with two colour correcting shades and two concealers that give you a medium to full, buildable coverage that has a natural finish.

Price: $53 CAD / Available now at MakeUpForEver.ca & Sephora

The Very Fair palette comes with a light yellow and mauve for colour correcting and I found that the light yellow was more helpful with correcting dark circles and discoloration. I don’t have any sallowness in my skin or brown spots, so I use the mauve if my freckles need to be toned down a bit but it’s not a must use for me. What I wish was in here was a light green for colour correcting my rosacea. I know there is a light green in the Light palette but it looks like it would be a tad too dark on my skin tone, so it would be nice to have a lighter, paler green as an option in this palette.

My Glittery Thoughts:

The concealers are amazing and everything I was hoping they would be. I can use both of them under my eye, although I prefer the lighter shade for brightening, and they blend as easy and as smoothly as they claim to, leaving me with a natural skin-line finish. I prefer applying them with my finger or dabbing it on with a brush and blending it out with a sponge and both ways creates a natural, smooth finish. With the light yellow and concealer over top, my under eyes and the discoloured areas on my face look like I have never ever had to deal with any imperfections because they make my skin look like it was airbrushed to perfection. The consistency of all of the creams are very lightweight, buildable in coverage and creamy. They are long lasting as long as you use a setting powder because they don’t completely dry down and will transfer.

All in all, I’ve found my new favourite concealing palette because the results look so natural and everything melts beautifully into my skin. I would love to see them come out with more colour correcting options so I can swap out the mauve for a pale green but other than that, I’m in love!

Make Up For Ever Artist Color Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

When I think of bold, vibrant eyeshadows, I think of Make Up For Ever. They know how to come out with quality shadows in a range of finishes and colours that always provide stunning results to any makeup look. The new Artist Color Shadows immediately drew me in with the huge range of colours and finishes to choose from as well as their claim of being highly blendable with immediate colour pay off that lasts up to 12 hours.

I had the chance to try out a couple shadows from the collection and I found myself instantly drawn to the blues in the collection. They looked so stunning and vibrant, so I asked to receive ME-230, a metallic peacock blue and D-236, a sea blue shade with a diamond/glittery finish.

My Glittery Thoughts:

Wow, wow, wow! Seeing them in person blows you away much more than online. Especially the diamond finish shadows. I love my glitter, obviously, and D-236 is everything I look for in a glittery eyeshadow. The colour is strong and the sparkle shows throughout and the blendability is amazing and very easy. Even the metallic eyeshadow, ME-230 is vibrant, very smooth to apply and works really well with other shadows. Since they are very vibrant colours, they will dye your eyelids so that is something to consider when buying one of the brighter shades. Overall, if you love colour and playing with fun shadows and finishes that offer smooth, intense colour then you won’t regret getting your hands on the new Artist Color Shadows!

Mini Make Up For Ever Review: Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow & Aqua XL Ink Liner

Mini Make Up For Ever Review: Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow & Aqua XL Ink Liner

When it comes to eyeshadow creams and liquid liners, I like to own every colour they could possibly be made in. They enhance any makeup look and make them look much more pigmented and vibrant. Make Up For Ever is one of the brands that knows how to deliver all of the colours of the rainbow and the quality of the products themselves barely ever disappoint. I just received two new products in shades that I oddly don’t have enough of in my stash from their Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow and Aqua XL Ink Liner collections!

Mini Make Up For Ever Review: Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow & Aqua XL Ink Liner

The new Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow‘s ($31 / 4.8 ml / Available now at Sephora) have 24-hr wear in a waterproof cream shadow formula that’s easy to blend and provides highly pigmented colour. Smudge-proof and crease-resistant, the shadows are enriched with mango butter to give your skin nourishing hydration so that your lids feel comfortable all day long. The collection comes in 20 shades that range from neutrals to bright tones that come in iridescent, matte and lustrous finishes.

The Aqua XL Ink Liner‘s ($30 / 1.7 ml / Available now at Sephora) are 24-hr, waterproof liquid liners that offer very pigmented colour and ultra-fine precision. It’s smudge, transfer and fade-proof with an ultra-fine felt tip and comes in 15 shades that offer matte, lustrous, diamond and metallic finishes.

My Glittery Thoughts:

I feel like these products would’ve been absolutely perfect to wear for Canada Day but aside from that they are just awesome! The cream shadow is very easy to work with and blend out and really makes my red eyeshadows POP! I have struggled to find really pigmented white liquid liners but this one definitely impresses with its bright and very opaque whiteness. I really like cream eyeshadows as eyeshadow bases and making powder shadows pop that much more and now I know that I really need to get my hands on more of these babies. The same goes for the white liner because I’ve been loving using them to define my crease and to do fun things with my winged liner and this packs the punch I’ve been looking for. The longevity of the cream shadow and ink liner are also amazing and I don’t find them to crack or crease like other products have. If you appreciate bold, vibrant colours and enjoy being creative with your makeup or just want cream shadows and liners that are really waterproof, then you have to check out these collections πŸ™‚
