Discover your Miracle Foundation :
Depending on your skin type, concerns and your desired end benefits, there are 2 types of Foundation.
1. The Skin Smoother : Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation –
I have tried this foundation earlier in the Shade ‘Sand 60′ and repurchased it too. This is close to my skin shade and I have yet to get the perfect match as new shades have been launched recently. I have got the Shade ‘Rose Beige 065′ to review, which is a little dark and light pink or rose.
This foundation is one of the best that I have come across so far and one of the foundation that I started with actually. It comes with a transparent lid on one side (so that you can see the foundation shade) and a compartment with a mini sponge applicator on the other side. That makes it so apt for travelling and for touch ups too in your vanity bag. It is a skin smoothing foundation, that transforms from solid to liquid when applied on the skin, without settling into skin’s imperfections, for flawless even base. It is a long lasting foundation and stays good for hours together without cracking or fading.
The sponge applicator really does a good job in applying the foundation as good as the beauty blender. The foundation glides on very smoothly on the skin without leaving any traces. It is wonderful for dry skin like mine and gives medium coverage. I suggest you to apply powder and makeup fixing spray to set the foundation.
This foundation comes in 12 shades, so I am sure you will find one for your skin.
2. The Age Defier : Max Factor Ageless Elixir Miracle Foundation –
This is a new launch. With both instant and long term benefits, the 2 in 1
formula provides flawless coverage while protecting against UV induced signs of
ageing. The best part is that it comes with SPF 15, so you need not layer your skin with sunscreen first. It is foundation and serum in one, so it takes care of your skin, giving that flawless look. Perfect for women who suffer from aged, tired looking skin. It stays again for hours together without cracking or fading.
I got the shade ‘Bronze 80′ to review, which is dark for my skin shade. I applied the foundation to review and was amazed with the results. It comes with a pump, that makes it so hygienic and pouring out only the amount that is needed as less is more in makeup ! It comes in a light weight transparent bottle, so you can see the shade of foundation and the amount of foundation left. You can apply the foundation with a brush or beauty blender. It blends really well in the skin without the cakey feeling. It provides a medium coverage and good for sensitive and dry skin like mine. I suggest to set the foundation with powder and fixing spray.
This foundation comes in 11 shades.
Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer :
key to achieving a flawless base is all down to the primer. As a make-up
artist, I always prep and prime skin before applying foundation, to ensure the
skin is super smooth for a seamless foundation application and finish.”, says Samira Olfat, Max Factor Regional Make-Up Artist .
Launching in February 2017, the NEW
Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer is the perfect complement to Max Factor’s suite
of Miracle Foundations, including Max Factor Miracle Touch and Max Factor Ageless Elixir Miracle.
a hydrating formula that instantly smooths the look of skin texture, the primer
allows for an even foundation application that transforms the skin’s appearance,
for healthy looking, youthful skin.
Like the Ageless Elixir Miracle, The Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer also comes with a pump and in a transparent light weight bottle. The primer blends in so smoothly and it not at all greasy.
The primer also contains skincare
ingredients such as Glycerine, Niacinamide and N-acetyl Glucosamine, to
moisturise and condition skin for a super smooth surface. Powerful
anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Panthenol and Green Tea work to
contribute to healthier, younger looking skin. It is oil free and hence suitable for all skin. It worked well for my sensitive skin and did not leave any white traces.
