Oh my gosh. Are they still making this?
Max Factor cosmetics used to be available in all drugstores and major retailers across the country once upon a time. After all,the late founder, Max himself,was the makeup artist to the legendary stars of Hollywood.
I used this concealer in my teenage years and it was awesome. It matched skin tones perfectly,blended like a dream and made your face look like flawless perfection. And lasted all day! No irritation. No breakouts. Not oily. Demi matte finish. And all this from a stick concealer.
You can still get Max's cosmetics online but no longer in any stores here in the US. The last time I bought a MF product in a store was about 9 years ago. Shortly after,they were gone after over 60 years.
What a shame. His line was a bit more on the medium-high end of the mass retail spectrum and worth it more than L'Oreal could ever be.

I have terrible dark circles, and I finally found a product that works! I have been a fan of Mac Studio Finish Concealer combined with a few other products, such as an orange corrector and yellow powder to further cancel the blue and purple hue under my eyes. But this product has the same result by itself! It is very full coverage and when combined with a corrector and yellow powder, it's like I never had dark circles.

What I like about this concealer is that it covers ok, I would say medium to full coverage. Also the shade "Ivory" (EU) matches my skintone quite well, and I tend to have a more pinkish undertone. I like that it is a stick and has a bit thick consistency, since I've got oily skin.

I'm not sure if I love this though, because I do need to reapply under my eyes and around my nose throughout the day, but that might just be because I've got oily skin. Especially under my eyes the coverage dissapears quite quckly, and my dark circles start peeking through.

I bought this in fair, which is too pink. Otherwise, I like the texture of this concealer. Too bad it doesn't have more of a yellow cast.

I really loved this concealer when I first bought it. It was perfectly suited to cover my bluey/brown undereye circles. I would apply it with a small concealer brush and set it with powder and it would look fabulous all day. But after about a month or so of being open I feel like the texture of it changed and it became far too hard to spread and blend under my eyes.
I think as a cream it would be fabbo, but as a stick it's just too thick difficult to use.

If only I could still buy this in 07 Ivory in Australia! It was discontinued here a couple of years ago, and they stupidly replaced all the shades with one shade only! Why?! A bizarre thing to do... Anyway, this is a great concealer: perfectly matches my skin, "sticks" to the skin well and doesn't wear off easily, blends quite well. I'm really sad I can't get it anymore... still using up my last stick!

This product was a complete waste of money. It's too thick and caulk like. Also, it did more to highlight problem areas than to camouflage them.

I love this concealer I have been buying this product for years. I have
acne prone skin and Ive been covering red acne scars. This is better than all the high end products that I have tried and that has been a lot!! I will always buy this product you should give it a try.

I love this concealer! This is my second tube, I can always count on this when everything else fails!
This concealer is such a soft rich creamy texture, easy to blend, it soo thick that it clings on to the area you you applied it and you dont need to use a lot of the product at all.
It very durable, barely need any touch up, its got a pink undertone which very good to conceal those dark circles. Small and compact, always have it handy in the bag.
