The New MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation

The newly reformulated Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation

I can’t believe its been ages since I last posted! I had an unexpected work situation occur: I had to take over a project in a sort of emergency capacity to get it back on track and it has seriously taken up all of my time for the past couple of weeks. Today was the start of the new semester at my university and even though I was busy with orientation events for new faculty and students all day and am exhausted, I really wanted to do a post and get back in the swing of things. I have several new products that I’ve been using that I’ve been dying to write about.

If you’re familiar with my blog, you know that I’m head over heels in love with the MUFE HD Foundation (read about how its the best foundation for fair skin imo). Its the only liquid foundation I’ve found that is light enough for me, that doesn’t oxidize, and also doesn’t irritate my skin or break me out. I tried a lot of foundations in my quest for a good liquid foundation as evidenced by my foundation graveyard. So imagine my horror to discover that my beloved foundation was *gasp* being reformulated!

New Make Up For Ever Ultra formula VS original HD Invisible Cover Foundation

How does the new “ultra” formula compare to my beloved HD Foundation?

Turns out, I shouldn’t have worried. The new Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation is just as even more awesome as the original. I didn’t notice a huge difference in the formula, although MUFE claims the new formula “appears more invisible, comfortable, and natural-looking than ever before.” I think it was just so good to begin with that its difficult to notice a huge improvement. It’s still long wearing and sheer and natural looking, letting your own skin come through but also provides good coverage.

For me the two differences are 1. even cuter, and more high-end looking packaging, and 2. improved shade range. I really like the new silver band around the bottle versus the original black. I also liked the addition of the little MUFE lips holding a makeup brush logo on the cap.

Some cute touches on the new packaging!

I think the most impressive improvement is that the Ultra HD foundation comes in even more shades; an astonishing 40 shades! (compared to 26 in the original formula). I had been using the lightest shade in the original line, N110 Pink Porcelain, which I still found slightly too pink-toned for me. In the new line, the equivalent of 110 is R220, but there is an even lighter shade (which looks to be about 2-3 shades lighter than Pink Porcelain), Y205 Alabaster. You can see the difference in the swatches below:

Alabaster is an even better match for me! So the new Ultra HD Foundation gets a huge thumbs up from me. If you have a difficult time finding a foundation light enough for your skin tone, definitely check this out. I think its nice that they include a sample of the Step 1 Skin Equalizer Hydrating Primer with the foundation as well.

    They also have a new color called R210- Pink Alabaster. I have Pink Porcelain, but I think the lighter shade might be even better. Unfortunately, I had to order it because they didn’t carry that shade in store. I was worried about Y205 Alabaster being too yellow since it’s classified on the yellow undertone side of things. It doesn’t look it in the swatch, though!


    • I find Alabaster to be pretty neutral – not too yellow and not too pink. Did you order Pink Alabaster? Hope it worked out for you. I’d love to hear what you think.

        I ordered it but haven’t gotten it yet. Should be one day this week.

        I got the Pink Alabaster. To me, it seems a bit more neutral than pink. I think it does match nicely, but so does the Pink Porcelain shade! I am curious how the Alabaster would look on me; I may see if I can find a store that carries that shade. (I know stores near me don’t have Pink Alabaster)

  11. This is a foundation I could not live without!!


  12. Welcome back, sweetie. I got a deluxe sample of this foundation and really, really enjoyed it. Usually I prefer a tad more coverage, but I’m considering a full size nonetheless.

  13. Oooh, I’m almost out of my current foundation and have been wanting to try MUFE. I love that the shades are light enough! πŸ™‚


  14. Nice to see a post from you! πŸ™‚
    Wow, that’s MUCH lighter! Glad it matches you better. I didn’t find this foundation to work well for me – it broke me out – but I wonder what they changed. I might have to give it another go.


    • Thanks! It does have silicone in it, so if you are really sensitive to that, it may cause some breakouts. I find because its mainly water-based I can tolerate it, even though some siliconey primers have bothered my skin. I find a lot of liquid foundations clog my pores, but this one doesn’t. I am loving how light it is!
