MUFE Pro Finish Multi Use Powder Foundation Fair Complexion Swatches

This was a free sample with a recent Sephora order.  Links are not affiliate links.

I selected the MUFE Fair Complexion sample with a recent Sephora order as one of my three free samples.   These are powder foundations, and I don't normally wear powder, but wanted to show you the shades anyway.  Note I have a slight sunburn from a few days ago, so my arms are a bit pinker than normal.

While these can be applied wet for a sheer, semi matte finish, I opted for the dry, full coverage application.  For shade 110 Pink Porcelain I used slightly more than half the sample just for the swatch.  It's very close to my skin tone, and I had to apply it heavy so you could see it. 115 Pink Ivory looks ok in the photos, but in person, it was too dark/pink.  113 Neutral Porcelain was too yellow, and 117 Golden Ivory was too peachy for me.

First couple of pictures are outside, no flash.  Sun kept going in & out, I hate when that happens.

a "down the arm" shot so you can see the pinkish of shades 110 and 115, and the much more yellow golden in shades 113 and 117.

brushed lightly, but not enough to fully blend

While I did use about half of the 110 Pink Porcelain for the swatch, the others I used much smaller amounts.  The 115 & 117 I only needed a small dab to clearly show.  While there's not enough of the 110 for me to use on my whole face, I think it would work for me.  I would like to try this shade and shade 107 Pink in their HD foundation, but the two Sephora stores nearest me didn't carry either shade the last time I checked.  If they ever have them, I'll happily try a squirt of each to see if either works.

Hope you've found the photos helpful, and thanks for looking.
