When Make Up For Ever posted an image of its forty shades of Ultra HD Foundation on Instagram, it also came with a swift jab at Fenty Beauty, who has been praised for its inclusive line of Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundations.  “40 shades is nothing new to us -👄- Since 2015, the #ultraHDfoundation released 40 shades for everyone’s unique skin tone understanding the difference between red and yellow undertones. With expertise, time and passion – we shall continue to develop and improve our products for pros, for you, for everyone. . .”   Rihanna, who has never been  one to sit quietly in the shade, commented immediately on the post with, “lol. still ashy,” followed by “shook.”  MUFE has yet to make their next move.

This is where the fun begins.”
