Review: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation - Y225 Marble

In the past year I have researched for new foundations, especially ones that makeup artist's love and recommend and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Insivible Cover Foundation always comes highly rated and recommended. It was hard to get a hold of it and choose the shade only based off of internet swatches, but I did and it didn't necessary blew me away as I expected it to.


It comes in a plastic transparent bottle with a black pump. Pump works fine, you can control the amount of product you want to get out. 

In it is 30 ml of product and I bought it on Escentual for around 36€, but I've since noticed, they don't sell Make Up For Ever anymore. In Slovenia you can buy it on Allu-makeup


It has a more liquid formula that has that very smooth, almost greasy base to it which is very spreadable. I usually don't like those kind of foundations that have too much movement, because it means they don't stick to the skin well. 

It gives me a natural finish with some dewy/luminous look to it that has a good amount of sheen, but doesn't look greasy. Coverage is light to medium and you can build it up to a lighter medium. It mostly just evens out skin tone, but won't cover blemishes or red patches.


Make Up For Ever is a professional makeup brand and as such includes variety of skin tones. This foundation comes in 52 shades.

I got shade Y225 Marble based on my internet research (never saw shades in person) and it works for me in the summer, but in the winter it's about two to three shades too dark. It's light to medium warm yellow toned shade. It almost turns a bit olive on my skin tone which I like, because it doesn't look too yellow.


Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation Y225 Marble - light to medium yellow warm
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation Y315 Sand - lighter medium yellow/olive warm
MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC13 - light yellow warm 
Revlon Colostay Combination/Oily Foundation 150 Buff - the lightest yellow to olive tone
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 51 Light Vanilla - light warm peach to neutral tone


It doesn't sit in pores, which is good. In general it looks fairly natural on the skin with a good amount of sheen. It needs a bit of time to set down, but even then it's not transfer proof. It doesn't seem to emphasize dry patches, but it also won't make you look all airbrushed. It's a very natural looking foundation and the sheen that it gives the skin looks well. It also photographs good, which is to be expected.

It will work especially well on normal to dry skin as well as mature skin. If you want something to cover, minimize pores or keep sebum at bay, than this won't be for you. At the end of the day my T zone looked greasy. It stays on well though, except on very oily parts. 

This foundation looks natural and it's called Ultra HD which means it will look good on camera for sure and that must be the reason why most like it so much (especially makeup artists), but it doesn't perfect your skin that much. It won't blur pores and make you look airbrushed. Plus I prefer something with more coverage. I think my skin is a bit too oily for this formula on certain parts and that might be the main reason I don't like it as much. This is truly for those that don't need much covering and like a lighter, natural look to the skin. If you want something similar in a drugstore range at a more affordable price, I recommend Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. 


  1. Revlon izgleda bolje na tvoji koži, tisti ti res naredi skoraj videz retruširane kože :). Tale sicer izgleda ok, ampak se mi zdi bolj moj tip podlage, pa kot praviš je od Bourjoisa dovolj podoben. Dobi pa velik plus za število odtenkov :)

    1. Se strinjam. Meni je Revlon res odličen in super paše na mojo mešano kožo. Ta je pa tak finiš že, preveč sijoč za moj tip kože. Sem prepričana, da bi na tebi boljše izgledal :). Tako je, Bourjois je res dober in poleg vsega še veliko bolj ugoden. Odtenki so pa itak vedno problem v drogerijah, med tem ko prit eh dražjih znamkah to načeloma ni nikoli problem.
