Just as is the case with their liquid version, Make Up For Ever claims their Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation was developed for the more extreme detail of today's ultra HD video technology—i.e., flawless coverage "invisible to the naked eye." Today's best foundations look incredibly natural on skin, whether in front of the camera or in real life, so let's take a closer look at this one's qualities so you can decide if it's right for your needs.
Packaged in a twist-up container, this formula has a smooth, creamy texture that sets to a slightly dewy finish. Best for combination to dry skin types, this can be sheered out for light coverage, or layered easily for medium to full coverage. As this is a stick foundation, its finish and the ingredients that keep this in a solid form (i.e. waxes, emollients) aren't recommended for oily or acne-prone skin.
For those who've tried similar stick or solid cream makeup in the past, you'll find Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation feels much lighter on skin in comparison, not the least bit heavy or greasy. Those with dry skin will appreciate that this resists clinging to dry spots on the face.
With a light swipe of product, it covers redness, uneven skin tone and gives skin a healthy, natural-looking appearance. Given the ease of application, it is ideal for spot application or layering over areas that need a little more help. (On that note, we'll mention coverage builds rapidly, so start by applying less product than you think you need.) ...read more
It doesn't provide heavy coverage (but this is one reason why I like it so much) but it's enough to hide most imperfections and still lets your skin look natural. I use a MAC stippling brush to blend it, but I've used my fingers to blend before and it works quite well.
My skin is oily (with the occasional dry patch) but this foundation stays on all day, even in humid weather. It's actually the only foundation I've used that stays on my skin when it's humid outside without "melting" after a few hours. It's also very convenient to bring with you in your makeup bag for touch ups, if it's necessary!
