Earlier this year, Make UP For Ever released their new Ultra HD Concealer. There are ten shades broken down into two groups. Five shades are intended for color correcting and five for concealing. I understand some people are annoyed by this but it seems as though MUFE designed having two groups to provide the necessary coverage without compromising the concealer’s integrity.
Each tube contains 0.23 oz. of product and retails for $27.00. I purchased mine at IMATS but they are available at Sephora.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of the applicator. Seeing as the formula is on the runny side, with time, the tip gets very messy. Small quiffs aside, the concealer’s formula is very thin, pigmented and creamy.
Color Correct: neutralize dark circles with a peach shade:
R20: Light Skintones
R22: Light to Medium Skintones
R30: Medium Skintones
R32: Medium to Tan Skintones
R40: Tan Skintones
Conceal: brighten and awaken undereye area:
Y21: Light Skintones
Y23: Light to Medium Skintones
Y31: Medium Skintones
Y33: Medium to Tan Skintones
Y41: Tan Skintones
[Pictured below is shade Y31].
If you don’t have dark under eyes you can get away with only using the concealer. It provides a medium to full coverage. The formula is designed to cover dark circles, unify the eyes contour and hide signs of fatigue leaving the skin with a smooth luminous finish. Having dry skin, I prefer using thicker creamier concealer and was surprised to find I enjoyed using such a thin concealer. I loved that it did not crease and didn’t accentuate the dry skin around my eyes. I may purchase a different shade since Y31 was too dark and yellow for me.
With regards to application, I recommend using either a beauty blender, sponge or your fingers. I didn’t like using a brush because it left a streaky finish. Over the week I’ve been testing out, I love using the Ultra HD Concealer with the Beauty Blenders Micro-Mini.
