To make this a fair comparison, when I applied these foundations I used the same Real Techniques stippling brush. I didn’t want the application to affect the finish and therefore affect my opinion.
Price: Both are 30ml – the Revlon PR is £12.99 and the MUFE HD one is a staggering £28.95. To be fair I think the MUFE foundation is totally worth the money though, see my review here to see why.
Packaging: The MUFE HD comes in a very high quality plastic bottle that looks like glass complete with pump. PR comes in a stumpy glass bottle also with a pump. Both lids stay on well and both pumps dispense the perfect amount of product. I like both bottle designs as they look simple and sophisticated and they both allow you to be able to see how much product is left. I don’t think there is much to separate the two products packaging-wise.
Texture, Colour & SPF: PR only comes in 8 shades compared with MUFE HD that comes in a massive range of 27 shades. PR and MUFE HD both have a very light texture and are highly pigmented which gives great coverage. I find the HD much easier to blend and feels more hydrating on my skin. I have to powder the HD foundation whereas I can leave the PR on its own. Both foundations have a very natural skin-like finish, the PR does contain very low-level shimmer whereas the HD is completely shimmer free. MUFE HD contains no SPF and the PR has an SPF of 20.
I really like both foundations but the MUFE HD is by far my favourite. Regarding the PhotoReady Makeup; I like a bit of shimmer as it makes my sometimes dry skin look more luminous but I can’t understand why a foundation made for the camera contains it. I also can’t understand why it contains SPF which can cause a bit of a white-cast when using flash-photography. To sum up: both offer good coverage without looking like makeup, both have great packaging & both are comfortable to wear. I just feel like the MUFE HD is so good that nothing can really compare to it, even though the price tag is slightly over-the-top.
