I had been using this for such a long time and now I came back to this great product. Its light, the coverage is sufficient for me (I have no skin problems) and also I can find a good shade for me, meybe because I have quite darker skintone... But the most amazing thing is that it is not noticable on your skin. I have tried so many foundations and each of them I could see on my nose and around, especially in the winter when you have runny nose, and this foudation you apply and there it leaves just no traces at all.... thats brilliant. I would definately recommend it! You can compare it even to much more expensive foundations.
I know that this product does not have have that many good reviews but this is the best foundatiion I have ever tried! It looks natural on me and lasts all day. Really love this foundation, and its not that expensive! The only downside is that it deos not have spf in it.
This would be a great foundation if there was a much better shade selection. I have never had problems colour-matching with ANY brands before, but for some reason with this one they always ran either too pale or too dark.
I love the texture, and I loved the finish of this. I did have some issues with oxidisation with the darker shades, but on the paler ones there was no issue there. Would definitely recommend it to someone who could match their skin tone!
What a shame! It had all the workings of a nice foundation, good coverage, good shade, sits nicely on the skin. But I won't abide oxidation - & this oxidises in weird patches and ends up looking streaky and by the end of the day you can see all of your flaws but now they're magnified by the collection of pigments in certain areas. I bought this because I've been looking for a thinner liquid foundation that provides the same kind of coverage as a cream foundation. I was sick of feeling like I could see a 'layer' on my skin - the consistency of this is great but doesn't mean squat at the end of the day.
Maybe I was expecting too much from this foundation, but I wasn't blown away by this at all. I bought the correct shade to match my skin tone, but left my face feeling and looking dirty. And provides no even coverage at all. I only purchased this as I couldn't get hold of my usual foundation, and assumed this one would be really good quality. I think I will be going back to my old foundation in future!
This is my foundation. The best I've tried yet. I hate foundations that look great from afar, but are flaky and powdery up close. I think it's disgusting looking. But this is completely brilliant. It doesn't even look like you've got foundation. No matter how close you get to the mirror. It does oxidise slightly, but it's okay if you have a slight tan. Just blend it right. This foundation is kind of drying - amazing for me because I have oily skin and need reverse moisturization. At the end of the day though if you have a spot it will collect around it and it does seem to wear off. If you're always re-applying though it will be fine for you, I just don't have time.
I used to like this foundation till i started using Oriflame's Giordani Gold Mineral Therapy foundation. I found out that my skin wasnt the reason why this foundation never looked perfect. it was always close to perfect though! above the mouth and between the brows there was always this flakiness, although i moisturized real well. on the positive side,it doesnt become oily during the day too much and it did blend well with my coloring but when i use it now, it kinda stings i dont know why. besides one has to shake it even if you use it every day as the color separates.
No repurchase for me!
Since I have oily/combination skin I like foundations with a natural and matte finish. Well this foundation promotes a second skin effect so I gave it a try. While this foundation doesn't provide much coverage but for an everyday casual (and natural!) make-up I would definitely recommend this one. Use concealer to hide the imperfections and then use this foundation for a flawless finish.
- hygienic bottle with a pump
- really light
- natural looking effect
- hydrating yet doesn't make your skin oily
- not long lasting
- light coverage
The reason i gave this a 3 and not a 4 is because on myself i didn't feel as if the product had a strong lasting power, however it did it give a nice dewy finish which i love, esp because I have dry skin!
Moreover the colour was just too grey and ashy, if you used a small amount it wasn't very noticeable but when you build it up it is quite greyish, eugh!
I've been recetly trying this foundation again after abandoning it and i really like it!! :O I wear quite a fair amount and my face looks so natural and teh colour seems to absorb into my skin and match quite nicely so i think it deserves 4 lippies!
Wore it for 3 DAYS and had the worst break out of my life. Thick, hard, pustules covered my cheeks for about six weeks (after I stopped using). I tried everything to get rid of them, 3xweekly exfoliation, stringent cleansing routine, peel, mask, you name it, it just took time to clear this disgusting break out, compliments of MaxFactor! If there were one product I could tell everyone to NEVER USE, it would be this one. Im not acne prone, I get occasional hormonal spots but never break outs. Yucky, chemical ingredients, have turned to BodyShop foundation which is so gorgeous with a little bit of Benefit concealer and couldn't be healthier & happier!
