Today we talk about
I had this product on my wishlist for quite a while and when I caught it on a 50% off sale, I decided to go for it. I was a little skeptical towards the shade, 45 Warm Almond, because I thought that it's a little bit too dark for me, but luckily that wasn't the case.
The packaging of the foundation is a very nice round box, which is also transparent, allowing you to take a better look at the shade. The lid has a special compartment where you can find a small sponge to apply easily the product onto your face. I find it very handy and useful, especially if you decide to carry this foundation in your bag, for a quick touch up during the day. When I first saw the small packaging, I thought I'm going to finish this product in no time, but that is not quite true. A little goes a long way, and with daily use, I managed to finish one box in almost 3 months.
If you look a little bit puzzled at this product, let me tell you from the start that this is not like an average foundation. Its solid consistency turns liquid the moment it gets in contact with your skin, making the application a dream. I usually apply my liquid foundations with my Kabuki brush, but with this one I feel it's best to apply it with a sponge, that way I am sure that I cover every single spot of my face and that I get a flawless result.
The coverage is medium, but you can easily build it to your own desire. I also love the soft glow that I get after I apply this product. That is thanks to the small shimmer particles that are inside and that are illuminating and giving a nice and healthy glow to the skin.
I know that this foundation is recommended for all skin types, but after I used it for a while I can say that this one will not be suitable for someone with dry skin. I noticed that it tends to make the dry areas on my face pop out in an ugly way, in the days that I don't moisturize properly, so if you want to purchase it, make sure you try out a sample first.
The lasting power is another thing that I'm happy with. If I apply it in the morning, I can be sure that it will stay on my face the whole day without problems. The only area that requires a small retouch after 4 hours, is my T- zone. I solve the problem using a setting powder, also from Max Factor (another good product).
All in all, I am very happy with this product and I am so happy that I decided to try it out.

Till next time, take care and don't forget to smile!
