This foundation is one of my all-time favorites out there due to its coverage, formula, weightlessness, and texture.
The first positive that I want to address with this foundation is that it has medium coverage but is buildable. With everyday makeup, I usually go for a sheer to medium coverage foundation which is where the Ultra HD foundation comes into play. The texture is very fluid and allows for even coverage even when sheered out. The coverage is able to conceal/blur my imperfections and my dark spots as well as texture since I am a man.
The second positive from this foundation is its formula.
My skin type changes daily and depending on the day I either need copious amounts of powder or none at all. There are two problems with both situations.
If I use too much powder, it can cause my foundation to crease, crack and split, making me appear older than I am. If I don’t use any powder I run the risk of getting oily and causing the foundation, and anything that I put on top of it, to break down.
However, this foundation has been able to resist my natural oils and remain intact even after excessive powdering.
So when my skin is on the dry side, I will apply this foundation without any form of powder and when I am oily I use powder in order to set things down. What I have found is that the foundation without powder during my dry phases, will not budge and when set down with a powder, the foundation did not crack, split, or crease.
The last thing that I want to cover with this foundation is the texture.
The foundation, when applied to the skin, is light and smooth. Some foundations, although smooth, are extremely heavy on the skin and can be rather uncomfortable to wear for prolonged periods of time and other’s, although light, have particles in the foundation that are visible after blending into the skin, giving it a flakey effect. The Ultra HD foundation is both lightweight and smooth which gives my skin a blurred and flawless appearance while remaining lightweight.
Overall, if you can find your shade in this foundation line, I would highly recommend it to those who are just starting out their careers as an MUA or are just looking for a quality everyday foundation.
