Morphe Filter Effect Foundation


Now that we are heading back into the office, we need to start wearing makeup again. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had to throw out a lot of my makeup – it’s gone past its shelf life during Covid. I was on the lookout for a new foundation – one that wouldn’t irritate my skin if I did have to wear a mask, and is hydrating for my mature skin. One that softens my pores that have started to reappear with menopause would be a bonus too. I think I’ve found it with the new Morphe Filter Effect Foundation.


Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, to boost skin’s moisture, antioxidant Vitamin E, to soothe and nourish, and pore-diffusing pigments, to help diffuse the look of imperfections, the foundation is ideal for mature skin. The foundation provides a natural coverage, and is buildable for those who like more cover. The formula is paraben, artificial fragrance, and oil free, so it’s designed to be gentle on skin, and is designed to be sweat and transfer-proof (so it won’t come off in the heat or on clothes). The foundation is available in a range of 40 shades to suit a wide range of skin tones and undertones (helpfully numbered from 01 to 40, so you don’t have to remember a name). This is a brilliant foundation that really performs – my skin loves the hydration it provides, and I love the soft focus filter effect to blur the few imperfections I have that age has supplied, as well as the wallet-friendly price. Morphe Filter Effect Foundation 30ml RRP $30.00. The Mophe Filter Effect Foundation is exclusive to Mecca from February 2021, and available from from May 2021.
