Review of Estee Lauder Maximum Cover by pink_cosmos
As a guide, I'm NC30 for Mac and Light/Medium is the perfect colour for me. Won't look that natural in the daytime, but at night, the SLIGHT pinkness is unnoticeable. Also I believe this has more yellow than the lighter shade.
Now there's full coverage, and then theres MAXIMUM cover. It gives you the coverage of a concealer but the spreadibility(?) of a foundation. The tiniest drop of product (I'm serious here, anything more than a dot the size of a quarter of a 5cent piece (aust)) will cover your whole face, anything more and it will be too much and wasteful! For this reason, one tube has lasted me probably 1.5 to 2 years - and I'm nowhere near finishing it (I'm probably half way through or 2/3). This is, however, because i only use it for special occassions, or going out at night. It's great for clubbing because it's water-resistant, doesn't streak even when you're sweating it off on the dancefloor. It's also long-wearing. For daytime the fullness of the coverage I find is too much and also, (and this is not just max. cover) if I use it everyday, I break out. This happens with MOST foundations as I have (very sensitive)-breakout prone skin and to date, have only found ONE foundation that doesn't break me out with everyday use (Ideal Matte also from EL) If it's the price that puts you off, don't worry it is WELL WORTH IT. Like I said, you only use a tiny tiny amount - best value for cost I've found with ANY foundation. The tube packaging is perfect and the nozzle squeezes just the right amount of product.
