Final Thoughts
I usually test foundation using a primer and powder that I love and that I know works with my other foundations. I can also tell pretty quickly if I like or don’t like a foundation. I tried several different combinations over a few days trying to get this one to work because I was so excited about this release. I love the original formula and knew this one would work even better for my dry skin. At the bottom of this post, I’ve included the different combinations I tried and some notes. I love the packaging update with the addition of the pump. F0.5 is my perfect shade in MUR products, but Ulta didn’t have it available in this product so I went with F0.2 which is the next closest thing. It definitely worked, but definitely leans a little more yellow. I’m super bummed this didn’t work for me, but I’ll be sticking with the original formula.

DAY 1
Primers: First Aid Beauty Coconut Smoothie, Urban Decay b6 Spray, Revlon Pore Reducing
Tool: Elcie Sponge
Powder: Catrice Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder with Equate Brush
–Skin looked cakey and dry, Nose was a hot mess. Overall, it just looked awful and I could not get home to remove it fast enough.

DAY 2
Primers: First Aid Beauty Coconut Smoothie, Urban Decay b6 Spray, Revlon Pore Reducing
Tool: Elcie Sponge
Powder: Revolution PRO Hydra Matte with Equate Brush
–I tried the Paint Pot trick (Nikkia Joy) on my nose and upper lip, hooping it would help the foundation stick and not break up. NOPE. Overall, it was improvement from Day 1, but still not good. Nose, chin, & upper lip were all a clingy cakey mess.

DAY 3
Primers: Urban Decay b6
Tool: Elcie Sponge
Powder: Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder in Fair with damp Wet n Wild Sponge
–I still didn’t love how it looked, but it was the best combo thus far. My nose still looked rough and it wore off on my chin. It was the first day that upper lip didn’t look like a cakey clingy mess.

DAY 4
–I mixed the Conceal & Hydrate with the Conceal & Define
Primers: irst Aid Beauty Coconut Smoothie, Urban Decay b6 Spray, Revlon Pore Reducing
Tool: Elcie Sponge
Powder: Catrice Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder with Equate Brush
–Looked dry, cakey, and clingy around my nose. Upper lip looked better, but not the best. Best combo of them all, but still not good.

After this, I just gave up and label it a no.
