Pretty big promise, huh? Yeah...
I chose the color Sand 60.
With flash, same day.
I was so happy when i took a sniff while swatching it on the hand and i noticed that they didn't use any scents! That's the main reason i didn't buy Max Factor foundations, since only lasting performance, second skin and this newbie here have no smell, except that specific, chemical one. :)
Another thing i noticed was the missing of the ingredient list! Where is it? It only had a transparent foil over it. I wanted to see if it's water based and i have nowhere to look for it.
It gives a matte finish, but it's luminous at the same time, it dries fast, like a car hitting the brake :) that's the feeling i got, at least. I find it hard to blend for a newbie. About the pump i can say that it releases just the right amount, in my opinion, not too much, not too little and it's creamy, not runny like Aerateint from Vichy. The coverage is medium to full i can say, it covers well my freckles (i have them on the forehead and under the eyes). So far, i like it and as it says on the packaging it has SPF 20. I have combination skin and i think it has that staying power i need. We'll see when i'll come back with a later edit.
Later edit: The foundation stays the same, but i had sunglasses on, it's pretty hot outside today, at noon and they made 2 'holes' in the foundation :) Maybe with powder it wouldn't have taken off...all of it! I tried retouching in the missing spots and it doesn't melt, sink or integrate at all! it's obviously uneven and patchy, so once gone, can't be replaced, so don't touch up! :( It has an amazing staying power! I didn't want to make this comment before i was sure of it. Today i wore it again and i have it for over 10hours now and i don't have a shiny spot on my face! I can see from very close, that on my nose i have some small dots of oil, but they're not so noticeable, it doesn't bother me at all and i have no powder on top!! I can say it's the first foundation that resists my oiliness, even better than Revlon Colorstay! Amazing or what?
