MAKE UP FOR EVER has recently launched their latest compact foundation - PRO FINISH Powder Foundation – the first multi-use powder foundation that allows me to fully customize my finish and coverage level, all thanks to its transforming texture.
Recently, I have gone down to Sephora at ION Orchard to choose my perfect match. PRO FINISH, priced at S$69, is available in 25 shades.
Formulated with exclusive bio-mimetic coated pigments (with vegetal lecithin), new PRO FINISH‘s breakthrough formula can be used wet or dry. It is also formulated with Silica and Sericite powders, Nylon powder, Ximenia oil, Aloe Vera and sodium hyaluronate. I’m glad it is FREE of paraben, fragrance and mineral oil. Enriched with hydrating ingredients, PRO FINISH corrects and evens the complexion without drying our the skin.
To get the best match, I was told it is essential to identify my undertone and skin tone. Anyone who looks great in silver color may likely have cool skin tone; or warm skin tone if you look good in gold color. I actually look great in both gold and silver colors (though silver color seems better on me) that may mean I have neutral skin tone. Cool skin tone usually appears a little pinkish.
The available shades are divided into 3 tones – cool, warm and neutral.
PRO FINISH are available in 25 shades at MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Loft & Academy, 16 shades at Sephora ION and Ngee Ann City; and 10 shades at the rest of Sephora outlets.
Since I couldn’t figure out if I’m having a cool or neutral skin tone, I’m advised to test 3 shades of cool tones to see if any one of them suits me.
Followed with 3 shades of neutral tones. I finally chose neutral shade No.113 that best matches my skin tone.
I must say this new PRO FINISH is probably one of the best powder compact foundation I’ve tested so far! Love love love!!!
I used to prefer liquid than powder foundation. It’s because I don’t really like the dry and powdery coverage and I also find it hard to create an even complexion with powder foundation. But after trying out the PRO FINISH, my perspective on powder foundation has changed.
Super love its talc lightweight texture that gives a buildable coverage with no chalky effect and easily blends for a perfect even complexion in just minutes. The result is long-lasting and it doesn’t melt off my face in the heat. The neutral shade No.113 matches my skin tone perfectly! I’m so glad I’ve chosen the perfect match that gives a super natural and even coverage without feeling heavy. My skin appears dewy and glowing without the dry powdery finish!
Application tips :
- Apply it wet for a sheer semi-matte perfection or dry for a full coverage, matte result.
- For combination skin, apply Pro Finish wet on external parts of the face, and dry on the T-zone.
- For a sophisticated makeup: apply a 1st wet layer to even out; and a 2nd dry layer to fix and improve the coverage.
- Avoid a heavy application around the eye area to avert marking lines and wrinkles and to overload the skin.
- For touch-ups: use it dry with a sponge or a powder brush of your choice.
PRO FINISH, priced at S$69, is now available at all Sephora outlets and Make Up For Ever Pro Loft & Academy at 36 & 38 Armenian Street #01-06 & #02-06.
