Makeup Forever HD Blush in #6


It is a shame that Makeup Forever is so hard to find in the UK.  Because I love this brand.  Not for the packaging, because it is very basic.  Not for their season collections (actually I don't think they have any).  It's because they do everyday products very well.  I love their concealers and I love the HD Blush.

The High Definition Blush is a cream blush in liquid form.  Makeup Forever colours are named by numbers which make them a bit hard to remember.  They do seem have actual names but they differ depending on which country/website you are in.  Shade #6 is a pink based coral and is also known as Quickie, Salmon Pink and Coral.

It is a long lasting and matte formula, which makes it great for those with combination/oily skin.  Some colours in the range are perfect for a natural look, others for very dramatic looks.  Some can even be used for contouring but I think it's best to leave that to the pros.

You only need the tiniest amount for your cheeks - one pump is more than enough (you probably only need a pinhead sized dot for each cheek).  And there lies the problem.  The pump bottle/tube, whilst hygienic, makes it very hard to control how much product comes out.  I have yet to perfect the pressure required and I always pump out too much for one use.  I hope MUFE will sort this out in the future.

I apply this with just my fingers.  Remember to pump out product onto the back of your hand first, blend out a little to warm up the product, then apply to cheeks.
