Mehron Celebre Pro HD Foundation review and Swatches

 Finally I’m doing this review! Before I attended the IMATS here in NYC, I had heard read so many good things about Mehron’s Celebre Pro HD foundation, that I HAD to pick it up. Its cheap as all get out at 9.95 (about 8.95 at the show), so i figured I couldn’t go wrong. I’ve been wanting and HD foundation for a while and while I love MUFE’s HD foundation in 178, It’s $40 price tag had me wondering if it was worth it. After seeing a glowing review from Wayne Goss, I decided I’d go for it. They initially gave me the wrong color at the show, so i ordered the right color from ebay.

I’ve been wearing this foundation almost daily lately, and I must say I really like it. While I still enjoy using my MAC Face and Body foundation, I sometimes want something with more coverage, like this. The idea of using a cream foundation really turned me off at first, but this feels very light on my skin. I don’t experience more mid day oiliness than usual using this, but you definitely need to set this with a finishing powder.

Another thing i really like about this foundation is that it blends quite easily. I blend the two colors together for highlighting and contouring when needed without any hassle.

A bit of foundation and moisturizer

Foundation and moisturizer blended into a tinted moisturizer

It warms up easily to your body temperature and you can mix it with moisturizer or a mixing medium to make for a more sheer application. You have to mix a bit more to achieve this with the moisturizer but its quite doable. Just make sure you don’t try to use too much moisturizer at once. A small spatula is great if you have it!

Nice range of skin colors

Again, you can’t go wrong with this stuff. It’s oil free, paraben free, and contains pomegranate extract and aloe to nourish the skin. Give it a try!
