After the positive feedback of the first stash pics, in this post I will be showing you my Makeup Forever collection. Makeup Forever (MUFE) is one my top three makeup brands next to Nars and MAC. My love affair with this brand started with the famous #92 eyeshadow and once I discovered its awesomeness, I went back for more. As a lover of colour, I appreciate how opaque and long lasting everything is.

If you have any questions or require specific recommendations, please let me know.

1. Foundations

MUFE makes amazing foundations for every skin type out there. What I really like about their products is the wide range of shades they offer, especially for the HD foundation. I use all three of the foundations below regularly. Face & Body gets used on a daily basis in the summer, HD is my going out foundation and Duo Matte is the best powder foundation ever created. I take it with me when I travel.

2. Eye Products:

I have accumulated more MUFE eyeshadows since the success with #92 back in early 2008. I think MUFE makes some of the best matte eyeshadows in the market and there are so many shades to chose from. I find their shimmery shades to be lacking in pigmentation comparatively though. I use #92 (needs no more praise, lol), #9, #5 (soft beautiul coral), #26 and #49 the most though I love them all. #15 and #112 are essential for a soft spring or bridal looks.

I only have one MUFE eyeliner (in shade gold) but I love how long lasting this is. I also have one of their metal pigments (#4) and am very impressed. The pigmented is very finely milled and offers a true metallic finish. What's not to love?

Aqua cream pots can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks depending on the colour. These are a bit like MAC paint pots except MUFE offers more colour options. I use them as coloured base on my eyes and they do not crease on me (I don't have oily lids though).

3. Lip Products:

My favourite part is always the lip section! Though I must admit I never paid any attention to MUFE lipsticks (I only had two lip liners from them) until the release of the rouge intense artist formula. I am absolutely in love with these babies as I love me some opaque shades. Shade #37 was my summer go-to, #48 is the most amazing burgundy and if you want a true purple, look no further than #15.

Let to right: #15 (purple) #13 (berried red), #48 (burgundy), #43 (neutral red), #34 (watermelon), #37 (pinky coral)

MUFE lip liners follow the rest of the brands philosophy; they go on opaque and are super long lasting. I really need to pick up more of these:

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. What are some of your favourite MUFE products?

    Awesome post! I love it. Thanks for showing us your MUFE stash. Your eyeshadow palette is so pretty. I still have to fill mines up. I'm waiting to go to the MUFE boutique to get refill eyehadows. I absolutely love their lipsticks as well. Great lipstick collection! I honestly think MUFE is truly one of the best MU companies out there. I love their pigmentation, intensity and lasting power of their products. Simply AMAZING!

    I am now tempted to do a post just like this. lol
