The Review: Max Factor Skin Luminizer FoundationWednesday, 10 September 2014
Max Factor Skin Luminzer Foundation (link)*
Glowing skin, natural looking, medium coverage and skincare benefits. So this is the latest offering from Max Factor. It perfects the 'barely there' appearance of make up but by still giving a decent amount of coverage, through evening out your skin tone and correcting imperfections. In fact it was the foundation used for the models skin, at the Victoria Beckham AW14 Show (by make-up maestro Pat McGrath). To be honest I was at first sceptical by the use of the word"glow," as I had an image in my head of the product adding to my oily skin. However that's where it proved me wrong, as I 'road tested' it on my daily tube commute-hard-core make-up testing I tell ya'. Which if you've experienced is a (very) sweaty/sticky place where make-up goes to melt off your face-quite literally really.
When first applied, I used a real techniques stippling brush, I found it blends seamlessly well into my skin and feels very light. Coverage wise it covers my redness and blemishes fairly well, though I do need to go back in with a heavier coverage concealer to touch-up those areas. With the colour range limited to six shades, I was surprised to find that "Light Ivory" matched my skin near-to-perfect. Pale skins gals' will know that when it comes to matching your skin tone, with your foundation, it can sometimes be near to impossible. As they always seem to have a slight orange tinge to them, or even (thanks to my oily skin) turn orange throughout the day.
Now to the important part. "So did it hold up with the daily commute?" I hear you ask. Well actually it did-pretty well in fact. Throughout the day I did need to blot the t-zone, but that's pretty normal for me with foundations. However besides from that I can *proudly* say that it has become a welcomed edition to ones make-up bag. Anyway if it's good enough for NYFW show, it's good enough for me.
