If you’ve never heard of Mehron or their Celebre Pro-HD Cream Foundation I take personal responsibility for failing you as a beauty blogger. I’ve talked about them before but it’s been a while because I thought people got tired of me talk about the brand and their amazing products. You might not see much from the brand on social media like you will most retail brands like Becca, NARS, MAC Cosmetics, or Urban Decay but mention in the circles of pro makeup artists that work in film and television and you will understand why it get so much love.

Mehron’s unique formula can be customized for opaque coverage or smoothed for full coverage, all while leaving skin looking naturally flawless.

I was introduced to Celebre Pro-HD Cream Foundation nearly 7 years ago at a makeup expo and was intrigued by the collection of 20 diverse shades and the price point of around $10 (which is usually the show price and even less on Amazon, $14.50 retail which is still great when it comes to foundation. They come in these simple black plastic jars with clear lids that make it easy to reach for your shade during your makeup application. That same foundation and formula are now in the form of a palette. That might be where things get a little tricky so try to follow. Although it’s called a contour and highlight palette essentially it’s a foundation palette that you can (and should) customize, contour, and highlight with. Not only will it give you a natural look (depending on your style of makeup) but it cuts down on buying separate products but it’s a formula you won’t have to question which is the biggest issue for me when it comes to buying contour and highlight palettes, most of the time I have no clue what the formula does, is expected to do, or how it’ll enhance or disturb the foundation I wear and love. I need to know if how it dries down, the finish, and wear and most of the time brands don’t say when it comes to c/h palettes. They will tell you about the shade range and sculpting but very little about the product itself.
Mehron doesn’t leave you clueless, you know exactly what to expect from this formula. The coverage is full and opaque which can be adjusted by using less, blending with a really damp beautyblender, or even incorporating some of the skincare products you already have like your moisturizer or serum. This foundation has a nice demi matte finish that handles setting powders really well. I’ve used it with matte setting powders and demi matte setting powders and it works just fine. It’s just a really good flexible formula that doesn’t dry out your skin and keeps you looking flawless and supple-skin’d.
