Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation Stick: Review

Any Jaclyn Hill lovers out there dying to try this foundation as much as I was??? As soon as this got the 'JH' seal of approval, I wanted it almost immediately, the only problem being getting to a store to find the correct shade! As soon as that opportunity arose, I picked it up immediately, along with the regular HD liquid foundation!

I chose mine in the shade 'Y315', which is the perfect match for me. If you already own the liquid foundation, you can get away with purchasing this in the same shade, but bare in mind it isn't as yellow toned! I thought that would be a problem for me, since I kind of love that 'Simpson-chíc' look.. but nope! It's perfect. 

As for application and 'blendability', (is that a word??), it's an absolute dream. I was incredibly dubious about using a foundation stick as it brings back painful memories of using them as a young teenager, and the stick literally dragging my skin off and being incredibly waxy and tacky. I was SO wrong. This glides onto your face in any which way you like. I draw a few lines on the sides of my face, one on my forehead, and I dot some on my chin and my nose. I use a buffing brush to blend it all over my face and it gives super full coverage, but it's super glowy! It's not heavy either, so you needn't worry about being 'cakey'.

It wears beautifully, and lasts until I want to remove it. I have a very oily t-zone, particularly my nose, and at first I thought it was making me produce more oil, but it turns out that's just what hot, sweaty London does to you! After wearing it in a less.. sweaty.. environment, it didn't budge. 

I'd say this is perfect for those who want full-coverage, but still want to look dewy. I can't speak for those with dry skin, but on my oily skin, it didn't cause me any problems. Any scars or blemishes are completely sealed away, this has climbed to the top of my 'foundation' ladder pretty fast!! 

I will continue to test out the liquid version, and I will definitely review that one too! I have a whole host of new base products that I'm trying out, so expect more from me on that topic! 

You can purchase this foundation from Debenhams here!
