Happy Weekend Pettigrew Crew!

You know how much I love fun mail, so I was quite happy to get this cute little box from Influenster in my mailbox! img_9252Inside was a full-size Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Foundation and a full-size Ultra HD Stick Foundation to try. Pretty Awesome right?img_9268abI’d heard good things about this foundation, but hadn’t tried either, so I was super stoked to try both.

Influenster emailed me a pic with a ton of color swatches to choose from. I was impressed with the shade range. {so many more colors to choose from than most foundation brands} But, I was nervous that the shades I chose wouldn’t work with my skin. Pretty if-y choosing from a picture! I was happily surprised when they blended perfectly with my skin tone. Nice!

img_9280aThe foundation has a pump and works so well with my Perfect Blender {my Beauty Blender dupe. You can see my review HERE!}

When I first used it, I noticed that the formula looks a lot thinner than some of the other foundations I use. I wasn’t sure if it was going to have much coverage, but I was very happy with the outcome. It feels much lighter on my face than some of my other thicker foundations, but it still covers very well.

I like that I can put a little on and it evens out my skin and looks very natural. {It’s seriously hard to tell I’m wearing any makeup} or I can build it up with a few more coats and have more coverage that looks great too.

I have normal to dry skin and I felt that this foundation helps with the dryness, but doesn’t leave me looking oily. In fact the finish is a little more on the matte side and I find that I need less setting powder. {which is awesome} I’m not sure what the outcome would be if you have oily skin. So, if you have oily skin, I’d love to hear your thoughts!img_9274aI chose a couple of shades lighter in the stick foundation in hopes that I could use it under my eyes and on any blemishes and it works great. It’s so creamy and goes on easily with a foundation brush. It has more coverage than the foundation and really covers up the dark circles under my eyes. {dark circles are a constant with four littles}

The foundation and stick foundation are quite the dynamic duo!img_9270abFinal Thoughts: 

I have an eclectic collection of makeup from a lot of great brands and it’s usually hard for me to pick my favorite of any one kind of makeup, but this is hands down my new favorite foundation!

I love how it blends, covers and builds. It feels great and doesn’t look cake-y, but it covers and makes my skin look even and beautiful. It also looks great in photos. {as someone who loves photography, that’s always a plus}

Lovin’ it and I recommend!
