Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Compact Foundation

Shades 117, 115

Powder foundations are my favorite.  I love liquids too, of course, but powders have been very good to me. They are super fast to  use and work great for oilier skins.  The new Make Up For Ever powder foundation, Pro Finish,  is all that and a bag of chips as the saying goes. It's  a powerhouse powder.

The coverage is excellent dry and the wear time is amazing. It looks good all day and all evening. Without a touch up.  I am less oily in winter so in summer I would say I'd  need a blot on the nose at times.

This isn't a heavy powder but it is full coverage unless you use it wet where it becomes very sheer. Too sheer for me. I'm all about the full. It's full and mainly matte but not flat. Your skin looks good. Perfected and soft.

New things in this foundation- a patented vegetal lecithin coating which helps to make pigments look more natural on skin, and it has much less talc than other powder foundations.   Ximenia oil and Aloe Vera  keep it  from looking dry as well.

I've talked about the long wear, MUFE also says it is water resistant.

Make Up For Ever calls is a powder foundation for the woman who would never try powder foundation and I agree.

Pro Finish comes in 25 shades and is $ 36 at  Sephora

Hi~ I wear 115 in the liquid and heard the powder runs darker. How do you find the colors compare in different formulas? Thanks!

Hi Lily,
It's been really long since I used the liquid so I can't say for sure.

I can say that the 115 powder is pretty light . Light enough that I can also wear the 117 without it looking too dark on me. I am fair but not super pale. Hope that helps a little.

Thanks, I think I'm going to try the 115 first. I'm fair but not extremely pale. I wish I had a Sephora close to me. I appreciate your help.

Good luck Lily. I don't have Sephora super close either. Not too far but not a quick trip . Makes it easier if they are but probably harder on the wallet :)

Hi! Happy New Year! Just stopping by to thank you for this post. I wore this foundation all year and just bought another :) I ended up with #113, perfect for me and great coverage which I need. Thanks again!

Hi Lily, Happy New Year to you as well.

Glad you found the shade that worked and nice of you to pop back in and update. I wear mine all the time as well, it's a really good one.
