It is no secret that Make Up For Ever is one of my favourite makeup companies and I get excited for every new release they announce because they always seem to come up with incredible formulas that perform really well.
One of their more recent launches featured the Ultra HD Skin and Lip Boosters, products that focus in prepping the skin and lips for makeup as well as new and improved formulas of their cult favourite HD Powders including brand new packaging and two new tinted versions (Banana and Peach).
The Ultra HD Skin Booster is a serum that features ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, argan oil and Vitamin E to help plump skin and prep it for skincare and makeup. It comes packaged in a glass jar with a pipette and has a silky finish to it that gets absorbed into the skin within seconds. My dehydrated skin loves this stuff and drinks it up the minute I apply it leaving my skin soft and hydrated. I love using this serum on my clean face before an oil or a moisturizer.
I’ve been a fan of the old formula for years so I was very excited to test out the new formula of the Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder especially the yellow tinted Banana powder. The packing has a sturdy feel to it and features a mirror, the powder itself has a smooth, silky feel to it. This is not your traditional Banana powder, the yellow tint is very soft and serves to subtly color correct while mattifying the skin. The powder has a light texture and allows layering without adding any texture to the skin, dusted all over the face once it takes my oiliness down a notch while keeping my skin glowy. I like to go back on my T-zone with a second or third pass (I have really oily skin) and I also love using this powder before applying any eyeshadow on my eyelids (whether I have a primer or not). This last technique transformed my eye make-up game and prevents any creasing or transfer (mascara, liner, eyeshadow) on my lids. This powder is amazing, it really works with your skin, it is light and almost undetectable and does a fantastic job at taking away shine in the most natural way possible. A must in ever makeup lover’s kit.
