Make Up For Ever Best of Make Up For Ever Set Review, Swatches, Photos

If you’re looking for great sets to haul during the Sephora VIB Event might I suggest the new Make Up For Ever Best of Make Up Forever Set?

This one is a great introduction to the brand for the n00bs or a nice value for fans of MUFE.

Take a peek!

At $55 this is a nice value as it includes three full size Make Up For Ever Products and three deluxe mini sizes.

You get:

  • Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 13 Warm Beige (champagne shimmer) (Full Size) (Review/Swatches)
  • Make Up For Ever Travel Aqua Eyes in Mat Black 0L (black) (Review/Swatches)
  • Make Up For Ever Lab Shine in Star Collection – S4 (pearly pink beige) (Full Size)
  • Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer
  • Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara (Full Size)

The selection includes everything you need for a complete face, lip, and eye look. You probably don’t need me to spread the joy about most of these products but I will say many of the items included are fantastic.

Aqua Eyes Eyeliner has a dreamy, creamy formula that blends easily and wears strong. It’s one of the best eyeliners you’ll come across. Aqua Cream is a fantastic cream shadow that builds easily, wears well as a color wash, or makes an ideal base for powders and piggies. Lab Shine Lipglosses have a nice pop of color, a wear time of at least 4 to 5 hours, and plenty of shine.

Plus essentials and cult favorites like Make Up For Ever’s High Def Powder complete your look.

I’ve never tried their HD Primer until I got this set and was pleasantly surprised it’s a moisturizing primer rather than one loaded with silicone.

Overall, the set is a nice value and the extra 20% Off you get during the VIB Event over the next few days makes it even sweeter.

The Make Up For Ever Best of Make Up For Ever set is available now, exclusively at Sephora and

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      oh sorry stellar I forgot to add a review link for the smoky mascara…I’ll track it down and update with my review. I reviewed it a while ago and personally I didn’t like it. Alot of people disagree though and enjoy it. I just don’t see anything dramatic about it…it’s pigmented so it will help enhance a smoky eye but fuller lashes, nay not really, longer, nothing to get too hyped about. let me track down my review and update. I already included review/swatch links for both the liner and aqua creams in this post already if you needed more detailed deets on those ;D!

      • Stellar

        Thanks! I never tried Makeup Forever products before. Maybe this will introduce me to the brand =D

        • the Muse

          my pleasure stellar it’s a great way to introduce yourself to the brand ;D!

    I got this during the FF at and its lovely. The mascara is ok, clumps more than i would like. I love the aquacream and since this purchase i have gotten 2 others! Im loving MUFE. I love their Face & Body and Mat Velvet+ foundations. Lasts all day during my 12 hr shifts!

    • the Muse

      kiki I love their aqua creams too ;-D nicest stuff ever ;-D I have a slew of shades I purchased when they first launched ;-D!

    Hi Muse, What is HD powder like? I know it doesn’t fare well in photographs but how is it as a powder otherwise? I avoid powder if possible as it looks cakey and dry. Thanks 🙂

    • the Muse

      pretty great stuff particularly for setting under your eyes. but you have to be careful not to over do it, things can get crazy fast. I normally set my concealer with it for longer wear and brightening my eyes up! ;-D

  • irini

    That seems lovely, wish Sephora would ship to international locations! However, it kinda bugs me when they have these clear caps on pencils, IMO they look kinda cheap-y 🙁

  • Wendy A.

    Nothing warms my heart like the words full size at half the price. Besides these are like the greatest hits.
    Thanks Muse.
