Make Up For Ever has reformulated their traditional face and body foundation into a new formula. I wasn’t sure what to expect for the texture of the Make Up For Ever Water Blend Face and Body Foundation ($54) since it is not only waterproof, but also 80% water-based. The foundation comes with a convenient pump to dispense the right amount of product. Since it is also gel based, the texture was similar to a hair gel. I received the shades Y445 and Y455.
At first the coverage was sheer and the foundation very cool on the skin. Being a more full coverage kind of girl, I was worried that I would not be able to get that result with this formula. However, I quickly learned that a more build-able coverage can be achieved.
Although very watery in texture, the finish was a nice natural matte finish on the skin. On some days the foundation didn’t last as long as I wanted it to, but it still had a certain longevity to it.
Overall, this foundation is best for days when you want a more natural look. It is also good if you plan to do a heavier evening look because due to the consistency of the foundation you definitely won’t end up looking cakey.
Try it yourself! You can find the Make Up For Ever Water Blend Face and Body Foundation at Sephora available in 20 shades.
