This is the entire Mehron HD foundation line in a huge palette. I like to keep it in the palette because it has them in order of color instead of me having to look around for certain tones if I had thrown them in a zuca case. I have dropped this case a couple of times so the top cracked.
The 1st aisle are the Light foundations. The 2nd aisle are the Medium foundations. The 3rd aisle are the Med-Dark foundations. The 4th aisle are the Dark foundations. The 5th aisle are the Eurasia foundations which has an extremely white foundation and the other three that are extremely yellow. Every aisle is numbered 1 through 4 starting from the top going down. For example, Lt 1, Lt2, Lt3, Lt4, Me1, Me2, etc etc.
Here is a swatch of the foundation on my wrist. It is not my color at all but I wanted it to stand out so you can see how creamy it is and what coverage it can give on just a first swipe. Then, the bottom photo is of it blended out. I also find it impressive that I swipe very little but it blends so far out which is a great quality because a little goes a far way with this foundation.
Look at how deep the pot is! It has 0.9oz which is a lot for a cream foundation. Most cream foundations from other brands have .2 oz to .4oz. And as I said before, you really don't need a lot for a whole face, so this will last you a long time.
I love the range of color and you can't beat the price. If you buy each color on it's own, it's $10.95 (a dollar less on Camera Ready). If you buy the whole set, it's $189.95. If you are a makeup artist, you get a discount from sites that sell them. I got mine for around $160.
I used to use Eve Pearl foundations in my kit, but when I started using these, I completely stopped using Eve Pearl. No matter what skin type I used this on, it always looked beautiful on the skin, and it has amazing coverage!!! I rarely use concealer nowadays because of the coverage this has.
Now, if you have oily skin, this can get a bit shiny, but not greasy. You just have to make sure you use an oil absorbing primer and powder to set it. I have oily skin and have used this foundation and I get so many compliments on how my skin is glowing. I have converted a couple of makeup artists to this foundation!
And as we all know, every foundation starts to fade after a couple of hours, and the selling point for me is that this foundation does not fade splotchy or in patches. Hallelujah! I can't say enough good things about Mehron's HD foundations, they are just genius for an amazing price.
