I had a 10% off welcome discount from Sephora for being a newly minted VIB along with their release of a Make Up For Ever goodie bag for VIBs free with $35 purchase. I had been pondering trying out the MUFE Face & Body foundation since I'm on the hunt for things that stand up to a hot and humid 15 minute walk in the morning to the bus - and something that can hold up to my oily zones during a workday.
I went to Sephora hoping to get shade #38 which is their lightest shade in the F&B line, but they did not carry it. I went to the next shade in line of the pink undertones (my Mat Velvet+ is also the lightest shade in the line with pink undertones and it works very well for me), shade #2. I swatched #2 and #20, but #20 seemed too yellowy. #2 felt rather orange-peach, but when blended out it seemed to almost disappear. I will do a full post later with swatches on my face in comparison to bare skin, Face & Body and my Mat Velvet+. In the bottle it looks incredibly dark for me.
This is the first time I've gotten pictures in natural daylight. Wowzers, what a difference! Look at all those freckles you can see!! I did apply Face & Body, went grocery shopping in the heat of the day and was sweating pretty heavily after dragging all of my groceries inside. I blotted away the sweat several times, not sure how much color remained.
Fun fact, my right eye (seen left here a bit more noticeably) turned partially green about 15 years ago.
On to the fun stuff! Here's the little bag it came in, I think I'll be using this in my purse to keep lip products from escaping (I lost a couple in IKEA that slipped out when sitting down).
Cutest lip gloss ever.
I need to make an effort to get pictures in natural light more often, much more true-to-life colors for my skin especially. In pictures I tend to get really washed out or look bright pink.
