Mehron Celebre Pro HD Foundation Makeup Review & Swatches

Mehron Celebre Pro HD Foundation makeup review is on the plate today after having been using it for a long period of time. This is a highly recommended foundation for professional makeup artist and is intended for HD TV. I wrote a previous review about this foundation but decided to update it since the old review was based on a short-term use experience. If you haven’t heard of Mehron and you are a professional makeup artist, then you should check out this review if you like crème foundations and are looking for something for HD TV or photography. I will also be showing swatches of the foundation (below) and will update them to as soon as I update my collection.

Mehron Celebre Pro HD Foundation

I have tested and compared my Mehron Celebre Pro HD foundation to my Graftobian Crème foundations. I personally loved my Graftobian crème foundations but I decided to see what else I could get for my buck, since Mehron is cheaper per gram. Mehron and Graftobian have a similar semi-matte finish, but is smoother and dries more matte. Because it dries more matte, it requires very good skin prep and a very good primer so that it doesn’t enhance your dry patches. The biggest difference is that Graftobian offers a better range of color than Mehron. Mehron, even though it has a good range of colors, doesn’t label them as warm, neutral and cool as Graftobian.

Mehron Celebre Pro HD Pros & Cons

Another thing to mention in this makeup review of Mehron Celebre Pro HD foundation is that you get 0.9 ounces for $9,95 (this might change over time). The texture is very smooth and it contains ingredients that offer a soft focus effect. The coverage can go from sheer to heavy. Since the foundation in general is intended for medium to full coverage, it covers redness effectively. The best thing about Mehron Celebre Pro HD foundation is that it doesn’t oxides on oily skin like Graftobian does. The foundation‘s stay power is quite long but longer if you prep, apply a good primer and set with the Mehron Celebre Pro HD setting powder or pressed powder. I also do not get any breakouts, unlike with my Revlon colorstay foundation. The foundation is oil free, fragrance free and it contain antioxidants and the finish is not flat matte.

Mehron Celebre Pro HD Foundation Conclusion

To complete this makeup review of Mehron Celebre Pro HD foundation, I would like to say that I got the best results when using the Mehron Celebre pro HD setting or pressed powder. I used other setting powders but didn’t get the same finish. On camera this foundation looks beautiful and flawless and I use my mehron color corrector and concealer wheel to cover any other flaws. I would also like to mention that I apply this foundation with my Sigma Beauty round top kabuki brush (Sigma Beauty Coupons) or a damp sponge. I do not recommend applying this foundation with your fingers since crème and liquids are not the same thing.

  • A lot of people have been asking me about the Mehron Celebre Pro Foundation review – undertones so I’m going to list the undertones as they seem to me. This might not be 100% accurate but it’s close! Got a question? Ask away!
  • Mehron before set with a powder looks amazing on the skin and very natural. It does not feel like a mask.
  • You must use a good primer and prep the skin in order for the foundation to not flake on dry spots on the face
  • Mehron celebre pro is recommended for oily – normal skin skin (doesn’t work best with dry skin, make sure to super hydrate it if you have dry skin)
  • Stay power is long with using the Mehron Celebre Pro HD Mineral loose Setting Powder or Mehron Celebre Pro HD pressed powder

    Hi, Could you please help me find my shade in Mehron. I am an NC42 in Mac, never used Graftobian so don’t know what shade would I be in it

    I know this post is close to ancient, but I hope that you’ll still be able to help me. I’ve looked at the mehron colorcharts, but I’m just not sure which color is my match, as I’m a nw 15-20. I’ve asked all my friends and my sister, but we can’t decide on which is my color, and as I live in Denmark I can’t find a graftobian foundation to compare with, hope you can help me 🙂

    Hello! I know this review is pretty old, but i was wondering if you could give me some suggestions on which color in the Celebre Pro foundation might suit me? I can give a couple examples in other brands if you’re familiar w/ their ranges or give you my google+ thing since my photo is there? If you can’t help, that’s fine too. Just tryna get this right the quickest (& cheapest lol) way possible! 🙂 Thanks!

          Ok. The two products I have that match are Laura Mercier Silk Creme in Cashew Beige (i believe is the name) and MAC studio fix concealer in NW25. I bought the Medium Dark 3 Celebre Pro but it’s a lil too deep, and when i got home i realized wow that’s pretty off LOL.

          I meant Studio Finish concealer*

          Hi Chelsea, sorry for the delay. Since you already have MD3 you can get either ME1 (warm undertone) or ME2 (neutral undertone) and basically lighten your MD3 to get your unique skin tone. I personally believe this is the best option. The Laura Mercier Silk Creme in Cashew Beige is a beige foundation which makes me understand that it has a neutral undertone based on the name but I might be wrong. MD3 has a warm undertone, so make sure to check if you have a warm, cool or neutral undertone then you can choose between ME2 or ME1.
