Really like this foundation Its got a slightly creamy texture to it,I have dry skin and this didn't cake on me I always moisturise before though,I also liked the coverage of this not to light and quite good at covering few flaws on my face I use Natural 70
my skin is quite fair but I use a bit of self tan at night to add just a hint of colour so this matches with my skin pretty well even on the days I don't use tan.

ive never had much luck with foundations. Untill i cam across the miracle touch liquid illusion foundation! It changed my perceptin into thinking that it is possible to find a foundation that does everythin you want it to. Not only covering all my imperfections and redness, it gave it a healthy colour and natural glow that looked like it had been airbrushed on. Simply stunning would best describe it. I would definetly buy it again. Only problem for me would be i do not agree with amount that is given, there needs to be more for that price. I dont mind paying the not so cheap price because it fits like a shoe for my skin, however it does not last long considerin i need a generous amount to cover my facial flaws.

I used to have acne on my face and after using the mircale touch. My face is getting smooth. I believe it is because the foundation does not cause damages to skin. I heard that miracle touch is made in Germany. I used Armani Face Fabric before I changed to miracle touch. I would say miracle touch is lighter but still with good coverage.

I can't believe that this product is so well rated! I bought it in almond over a year ago, and definitively won't repurchase (i gave it to my mother): In winter this foundation evidences even the smallest imperfections and dry areas of my face,while in summer it's too heavy. I also don't like the shimmer in it. I think it would work only for people with perfect skin.

I have a LOVE slash HATE relationship with this foundation, i love it coz its the best ive found coverage (covers all my spots and redness) and finish (smooth, natural, and non-oily) wise for my skin, but i hate it coz it causes me to break out.. cries, if only it didnt as i use it every day! im very pale and the creamy ivory (lightest shade) matched perfectly in summer but now its winter and its just a tad too dark! if you dont have skin problems and are at least one shade darker than casper unlike me then this would prob be perfect, still on my seach for the perfect non-pore clogging foundation, but in the meantime its going to be miracle touch for me!

I quite like this foundation. its really nice and full coverage but without looking too cakey.it didnt make me break out, and evened my skin out and made it real nice and smooth
what i did notice about this was that it did make my face feel kind of wet...but thats ok...
i wont use it in the summer but i will repurchase in the winter.

I bought this due to good internet reviews & recommendations by friends. I thought it had to be good seeing as it was highly priced for a drugstore product. Im quite picky when it comes to make up as i like my skin to look nice & spot free but not weirdly flawless. This did just that & lasted long. i think im in love with it ! :)

I was just getting into make-up when I found this product so I'm updating.

I feel that looking back this makeup was cakey, unatural and made me break out like crazy. It would also transfer as it was greasey. The sponge that came with it was flimsy and didn't do much. I think with a light hand and clear skin, this could work for some people on a budget. But to be honest - there was hardly any product in the glass compact.

Packaging with nice though. Price was nice too. Just wasn't a very nice foundation.

I really like this foundation. I've always liked Max Factor and was keen to try this when I saw the advertisement. But Im always a lil bit scared of wasting money. Luckily enough, my best friend was using this for a a while and she also liked it a lot. I asked her whether I can try it for one day (since she has the same skincolor and skintype). I really liked it and it didnt gave me a cakey look. After this 'trial' I bought it myself and have been using it for almost a year now. I really like the fact I dont have to use a lot. Blends reallllly well with the skin and the coverage is perfect in my opinion, color matches good with my own skincolor. It doesnt give me a cakey look (which I absolutely hate). I'd defenitely buy it again. The price really is worth it.

Ok, i'l admit i am prone to acne, i am never without a pimple and have scars from when i was burnt as a child so i offten just cover it up, so if there was an area of my make up bag i was willing to spend a bit more money on it would be foundation. Being a student £11.70 is quite a bit of money for a foundation ( i can buy a mascara, deodorant and moisturiser and still have change from this amount) so i'm not going to just compare one foundation but two and hopefully you understand why.
Maxfactor miracle touch liquid illusion foundation (£11.70) and Revlon colourstay foundation (£11.74) similar price, two very different foundations!
I first bought my maxfactor miracle touch after seeing an advert and (after swearing i would never go back to liquid foundation) thought i would give it a go as it was a very creamy compact.
My verdict...wow! it claimed light to medium coverage but it covered perfectly on me, blended with ease and the colour match was fabulous. It claims to be perfect on its own without concealer or powder but i find i still need a touch of concealer and powder on my t-zone as it appears quite oily even under the foundation! However, it was still one of the best foundations i'd ever tried and was incredibly pleased with the results!
So....why switch to revlon colourstay ( though iím not totally converted as i use both) ???
Well, being a total make-up addict and on a tight budget isnít easy so when i heard so many people saying how the revlon colourstay was just like MAC studio fix fluid ,which is way out of my pride range, and giving it such good press i just had to try it! and yes i was impressed, excellent coverage ( though it is advertised as a high coverage product so that probably explains it) great colour and lasted longer than my miracle touch. It left no oil round my t-zone and i was impressed. The downside was it dried in seconds making it harder to blend, it has an incredibly knack of removing any concealer i have on so i have to back an put more on and occasionally it can look like Iíve got lines on my face (this maybe due to the fact i use a foundation brush and the product is so fast drying).
So what is your point??? i hear you cry, well apart from highlighting two very different foundation, of which i believe maxfactor is probably the best, Iím trying to show the difference in products you can get for the same amount of money, especially when youíre on a tight budget and can't afford to waste money on bad products. Both are very good products and do what they say they will do and are probably up there with any premium brands but each has very different qualities which make them both brilliant.
I now use a mix of both products, revlon coloyrstay for my t-zone and chin and maxfactor for other areas and if i was in a rush i would use maxfactor, if i could only have one of the two, as you've guessed, it would be Maxfactor miracle touch. I'm glad i have the choice of both in my make-up bag and they will both last me quite a long time. Hope that has helped anyone else on a budget or struggling to make a choice.
