Soooooo, @makeupforever “Ultra HD” was my holy grail foundation for years. It is light weight on the skin, but gives you COVERAGE and it wears beautifully through the day! I stopped using it ’cause #thebeautybloggerlife, but I have been craving somethin’ old reliable 😉 After snagging this from Sephora I started my dupe research aaaaannnnd came upon the @lagirlcosmetics “Pro Coverage” foundation. Boy, oh boy. I don’t know what else to say, other than the MakeUp ForEver foundation is going back to Sephora my friends. That $5 😱😱😱 foundation is frigging BOMB babes!
There is only one difference that I can see between the two foundations: the wear. The LA Girl foundation doesn’t wear as long as the MakeUp Forever foundation, BUT I have reconciled that with the right primer. By using a great primer (my favorite is the Becca Backlight Priming Filter) I can get this $5 foundation to look perfect for about 6 hours! There is some settling after that in my fine lines, but for the price I am just over here like, whatever!!!!
I have the colors “Porcelain” for my natural skin tone and “Natural” for my tanned self 😉 If you are wondering about colors simply google “foundation swatches” of the foundation and you will be able to get a better gauge 👌🏽
