Make Up For Ever #HDNOFILTER

Do you know that in high definition technology, an image presented is 6 times more precise than before, which means that every detail, line, redness and spot of powder will be more obvious in the image? Sounds like bad news right! Luckily for us girls, there are HD products from Make Up For Ever (MUFE) to counter that problem.


Their latest HD products are the HD pressed powder and the HD cream blush, which I'm going to share about today. Good stuffs I promise!! Making me wonder why didn't I try MUFE's makeup earlier.....


I'm using their High Definition Pressed Powder as well as different shades of High Definition Blush in the 4 photos below! :)



The HD Pressed Powder is a handy, on-the-go pressed version of the cult HD Loose Powder. Extra-fine and talc-free, it shows no texture on the skin and fades lines optically, without settling inside the skin. Many women find the finish invisible, make-up is perfectly fixed, the powder is smooth and non-drying, and sebum is instantly absorbed.

Their pressed powder comes in only one color, which is invisible when applied. So yes, this is suitable for all skin tones.


Because it is invisible on the skin, I didn't manage to provide a swatch of it. Instead, here's a picture of the powder being picked up by my kabuki brush. You can see that the powder is extra fine, took me quite a few tries to focus on the teeny weeny specks of powder.

My review of the HD Pressed Powder:

This HD pressed powder gives a softening effect immediately after application, with a slight luminous glow. You know the Soft Skin Mode in your camera? The first thought that came to my mind is that this is a filter in real-life, it really softens my whole look! Not only does it softens, I find that there is also a slight highlighting effect which I love.

I apply this powder with a kabuki brush for my whole face. The powder is really "loose" and I like how light it is, feels like nothing on my face and my skin can still breathe. Even when I'm have powder foundation on, I will apply a layer of this HD Pressed Powder all over my makeup.

I guess what it really does is to "reflect" our minor flaws like pores and lines, so a concealor is still needed for flaws like acne and acne scars.


The HD Cream Blush has a texture-free second-skin finish, bringing flattering freshness and controlled shine to the apples of the cheeks, producing a stunningly real finish. The HD Cream Blush is extremely easy to blend and offers modular coverage. It’s the quick-shot fix to bringing a healthy flush to the complexion. The on-the-go compact comes with a large mirror to give the skin a flush of colour any time of day, even when its glow starts to fade.

Available in an extra-wide range of 16 shades – 15 nude shades + 1 funky "doll-like" coral hue to meet the needs of every skin tone.


Swatches of the 5 shades that I've gotten - 210 (Cool Pink) , 220 (Pink Sand) , 335 (Fawn) , 410 (Coral) and 510 (Raspberry)! Creamy and pigmented as you can see from my swatches..

My review of the HD Cream Blush:

I have never come across any blush that is so pigmented and long-lasting before in my life. This is really the best blusher I've ever came across, I'm not even exaggerating. The blushes really lasted all day, and still looks fresh when I was about to remove my makeup.

Application wise was much easier than what I've imagined too. Initially, I was afraid that it will look patchy because the colors are so intense (especially 510 Raspberry) and that I'm pretty new to cream blushes, but that is not the case at all. Used a cheek brush to apply them, and it was really easy to blend and adjust the intensity of the blush on my skin!

I love how they took the effort to come up with so many shades to cater to all types of skin tone and make up looks! Out of the 5 shades which I've got, I like to use 210, 220, 410 and 510 for my cheeks and 335 for contouring and as a bronzer because it is a little dark on me. I still can't decide which shade is my favourite yet.


I'm using the HD Pressed Powder and HD Cream Blush in 335 (Fawn) for contouring in all my photos below! You can see which shade suit your make up style more before getting them from the stores :)
210 (Cool Pink)

This is a pink that will never goes wrong. Good for the cute and rosy look!

220 (Pink Sand)

This is a pink with a brown tone to it, the most natural shade out of the 5 blushes I have! It makes a difference to your look yet you can barely notice it, nude they call it.

410 (Coral)

The K-beauty fans will definitely love this orange tone blush, just like me! Perfect to complete our korean make up look!

510 (Raspberry)

This has a cooler tone compared to the rest, I love how pigmented and obvious it is! But do take extra care when applying this shade because it is kind of dark.


Hope you enjoyed this post, took me quite some time to do the looks and the editing! :)
