The MUFE HD microfinish blush in #8 PDA has been a staple in my makeup bag for quite some time now and it only occurred to me that I should review it after picked up the HD blush in Walk Of Shame recently (at Salon Melbourne trade show).
The MUFE HD blush formula is halfway between a liquid and a cream with a matte velvety finish. MUFE says that it combines ‘mattifying and reflecting powders to create a soft-focus effect’ and as a person with dry cheeks in the winter time I really love how this ‘soft focus’ finish hides any dry patches rather than accentuating them like some blushes (particularly powder) can. It really gives you the ‘lit from within’ glow.
PDA is a medium guava shade with a slight rusty undertone and high pigmentation. A really flattering, versatile colour that seems to suit every situation. You only need a small dot (approx 2-3mm across depending on how much colour intensity you like) for each cheek, so this product should last you a good while.
Walk of Shame is a light icy pink with sheer to medium pigmentation. I must admit I am a little disappointed with the pigmentation (after being so impressed with MUFE HD blush in PDA) – on my skin tone I feel I need to apply two layers for this to properly show up. It’s a pretty colour though, and gives you that MUFE velvety ‘lit from within’ glow. This shade would probably suit a lighter complexion than mine, and I kick myself for not picking up one of the other darker pinks that I had my eyes on instead.
Keep reading after the jump!
The main reason that MUFE HD blush in PDA has been one of my most used blushes is that it has such incredible lasting power for a cream product. I’ve always had issues with blushes disappearing quickly on my skin, and cream blushes usually fade significantly after about an hour- this one will fade significantly after about 4hrs. If it’s going to be a long day/night with no opportunity for touch ups- I always reach for this with a powder blush over the top. Unfortunately, my new MUFE HD blush in Walk Of Shame doesn’t have the same lasting power and behaves the same as any other cream blush on my cheeks.
I like pumping a small amount on the back of my hand and then blending the blush on my cheeks with clean fingers. They do dry down relatively quickly so you need to work reasonably fast, especially with the more pigmented colours.
The pump packaging is excellent for keeping the product fresh and hygienic. The MUFE pump allows you to dispense as little or as much product as you want.
