This concealer is definitely not for oily skin. It transfers and does not want to blend. It creases on me too, and it accentuates dry patches. It has poor coverage.

Love love love! This is the very first foundation stick that I tried. I have acne prone and oily skin, this doesn't irritate my face. It glides on smoothly and blends seamlessly. I ran out of my Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation so I went straight to ThatTaylaa's youtube channel where she reviews high coverage foundations. Thank God we have Max Factor near where I live so I quickly bought this. My only con for this is there's only 1 yellow undertone shade and I'm grateful it fits me. I am definitely going to stock up on this. I use my The Body Shop Instablur primer with this one as the MF Pan Stik feels greasy so I'm guessing I'll be an oil slick at the end of the day. The TBS Instablur works perfectly with this and keeps my oils away. I only have to blot at the end of the day. So happy with this discovery. Definitely a Holy Grail product. :)

So I've been using this product on and off for about two weeks - I'm in high school sometimes I get no sleep and I have quite red skin with fairly large pores and not many spots, but when I do get them I run too this tbh I use this in my day to day life and I love it! Under eye bags and your to lazy to reach for concealer? This has got us natural dewy medium coverage? This ahs got ya dry to normal skin? This studs is a dream I wear this from Spring through to Autumn but not in the summer or winter months (in summer I usually wear just concealer and powder cause foundation is to much and I'm winter I reach for my Eco soul luminous serum be cake) but yeah! I love this on all fronts cheap and cheerful and lasts for a for a good eight/nine hours!

HG Product!! Unfortunatelly Max Factor is not sold in Brazil anymore, so I stock um on this whenever I'm abroad. It is meant to be a foundation, but I don't wear it this way. It's creamy consistency and high coverage males it perfect as a undereye concealer. It melts onto skin perfectly and doesn't crease. The only downpart is the packaging. It breaks very easily and the lid won't close tightly.

The first face makeup I used. My first love. My only true makeup love. I wish they'd bring it back to the US (and double or even triple the size of the new packaging!) but I'm glad they're still making it in basically the same formulation. Great full coverage and finish. I compare every other makeup to this.

I've used it for drag make up and I have to say that it's absolutely gorgeous. Usual foundations used for drag are extremely heavy, most popular is kryolan stick but I have to say that this was pretty good alternative, especially when you compare the prices. The only sad thing about it is that in Croatia we only have 3 shades, I think a darker ones would be great for contouring.

This was my HG of all HG's....my first real makeup product which I carried with me everywhere when I was in my late teens/early 20s...loved it loved it loved it....until I stopped being able to find it....pretty certain they stopped selling Max Factor in Canada many years ago. I have searched far and wide and STILL haven't found a product to compare to this!!! Weeping...

This is such an under rated foundation, i have been using it since i was a teenager, it gives amazing coverage and isn't at all cakey, its very blendable and goes on like a concealer so its easy to throw in your bag and top up.A few years ago i really started to get into higher end makeup and iv a pretty big collection but i still always go back to this, its my holy grail out of all my foundations and it cost less than 9 euro.

There is a reason why this product has been around since 1948!! For dry skinned ladies it is a pure godsend. Since advancing into my late thirties my skin became as dry as the sahara and every liquid foundation i tried just clung to my dry cracked patches and looked ghastly no matter how much i moisturised and primed beforehand. retinoid acne treatment plus cold weather really took their toll on my face.I used Pan Stick in my earlier years and shunned it thinking it looked cakey and artificial and too heavily made up. My search for more natural foundations only resulted in pricey disasters, with practically every foundation making my dry skin look much worse. I was even considering going without foundation as i just could not find one that looked decent on my skin at the end of a working day. So, i unearthed my long forgotten faithful pan stick in 13 Nouveau beige. I moisturised and primed and smoothed it on. It's a dream! It is full coverage but it is superb. It covers EVERYTHING. It made my skin look dewy and flawless and no sign of flaky patches and it stayed on ALL DAY without needing to be touched up once! It didnt cake or transfer and most importantly, it didnt settle in my smile lines or the fine lines under my eyes.I use a cream blusher and it went on smoothly and blended perfectly over the pan stick. My t zone had a very very slight shine after 8 hours but apart from that nothing! It looked just as fresh as when i had applied it at 7 am that morning.For reference, my skin tone is nw20 and the shade 13 nouveau Beige is perfect. It's pink toned I believe. My search for HG foundation is now over. Im in love with my old flame again!

I recently purchased the Max Factor pan stick in fair (25), as I am naturally very pale skinned. I was a bit put off by the pinky appearance of this product in store, but had heard good things about it so decided to give it a shot. At a price of £7.99, the pan stick was cheaper than my usual Max Factor mousse foundation. After using this product several times, I have found that it is brilliant for my skin! I don't have a great complexion naturally, but I find that this product really blends into my skin creating a 'flawless finish' effect.However, I do use the pan stick as a second layer of foundation as I think this gives the best natural looking coverage for my skin. I then use two types of concealer (undereye and general) to make sure that my skin is fully covered.Another great thing about the pan stick is that it seems to last all day on my skin, and I never seem to have to reapply. This has always been a problem for me as I usually have to keep touching up my make up throughout the day!Overall, I think this product is fantastic for people with any skin type as the stick is not oily, yet does not drag across the skin, so is ideal. Paired with a blending brush or complexion sponge, this foundation can really do the trick.
