So many events lately! Not that I’m complaining, but I’m really sorry for the lack of tutorial posts, and again soooo sorry if there’s too many “event” posts. It’s just pure coincidence that all the events were very close to each other this week. Anyways, today’s post is about MUFE Pro Finish Workshop event. I do have to say that MUFE Indonesia PR Staff was one of the best team that I’ve met so far. They are extremely kind, and friendly, so helpful and I really had a good time with them.
This MUFE Pro Finish workshop event was an introduction to their new product, which is (duh!) MUFE Pro Finish. This product was released to the public on September 7, 2013 in Indonesia. There’s only 17 shades in this range for Indonesia. There’s actually 25, but only 17 is available in Indonesia. I think this is one of the best brand for foundation since there’s a huge range of colors, besides MAC. This product will cost IDR. 430,000.
Just to let you know, I’ve actually already owned this product (my shade is 118). I bought it in Canada beginning of the year and have been using it. Let me just give you a brief introduction about MUFE Pro Finish. This product is a compact powder. What’s special about it is the fact that it can be used both DRY and Wet.
However, a word of warning, if you do apply this wet, you might find that the shade goes darker when applied to the skin. I’m not too sure why, but this is what I find. They also said, if you apply this wet, you get a sheer finish. I find this otherwise. I think applying it dry gives a more sheer finish.
I don’t like using this product wet. I, much prefer, using it dry to set my liquid/cream foundation. If you apply this dry with a buffing brush, you can get a good medium coverage. You, do, need to set it with a setting spray to avoid looking cakey or powdery.
It’s so great how, after you apply this wet, the powder will just dry and return to its normal powder state. If you’re like and have tried to wet MAC compact powder or ANY compact powders, you’ll find that there’s this weird coating, and had to scrape the coating off first before you can apply the powder underneath. With MUFE Pro Finish, you don’t have to do that! No coating!
Anyhow, let’s get back to the event. I felt like I’ve just done a short review about the product…lol…So, the event started out with a little makeup demo by Morris, a MUFE Makeup Artist. Then we were asked to try the products on our own face. Obviously, if you followed me on twitter/instagram, you’d have seen my makeup in the morning – bare face, strong brows, mascara and bold lips. However, since I wanted to be a good sport, I removed my makeup and stripped it down using MUFE Gentle Milk (picture above). Everyone was provided with a little table and a few products, as well as brushes on the table. We pretty much shared everything, not the most hygienic thing to do, but at least I already wore my mascara and I sharpened all the lip liners. The brushes were clean, so that was great.
Below on the left is my face with nothing on, but mascara. On the right, I’ve applied MUFE Pro Finish (dry) using foundation brush, filled my brows using MUFE brow pencil, contour slightly, a little bit of blush and added lip-liner to fill my lips. As you can see, the result from MUFE Pro Finish is pretty natural. It knocks out the redness and it covers my pores pretty well. Very sheer and natural. It also helps when my skin has been behaving well lately. However, you can see my dark under eyes (those late night sleeps are taking its toll..hahahaha). I didn’t apply any concealer.
Before and After MUFE Pro Finish
After I did my own makeup, Franky (from Rebzone) and I did Lucia’s makeup. Lucia is actually a friend of mine who tagged along today. So, again, thanks MUFE for allowing her to join us. It was fun, she enjoyed it a lot and she actually ended up buying that pink lip-liner on her lips! Isn’t she gorgeous?
So, after I did Lucia’s makeup, I wanted to go back to my bold lips since my face is quite bare. So, I applied MUFE Aqua Lip Liner in 11C and filled it in my lips. I, then, applied my Revlon Black Cherry on top of it. The result is the photo below! Super awesomely dark! Perfect for Fall/Winter makeup! I’m starting to love dark lips now.
Below is a picture of me with Maria. The pretty lady is a MUFE Intern, and guess what?! She is Indonesian, but her background is a Pakistani. She’s so friendly, and we couldn’t stop talking the whole time!

Of course the event won’t be completed without a great pictures of us! By this time almost everyone was gone, so it was just the 5 of us and the Staff. Thanks MUFE Indonesia for inviting us! Thank you for being such a great host!
P.S.: FYI, I was not forced or felt compelled to post every events I go to. I think it was nice that I was invited to all these different events, and I just wanted to share with you guys what I learnt and did during the event. To be honest, no one told me I’ve to do an event coverage or anything. I just wanted to share my good experience, and hopefully you guys can learn something from this post as well (i.e. the products).
