Max Factor introduced a while ago its latest foundation breakthrough, the New Second Skin Foundation.
I received this product only a few days after I just bought a new foundation from MUFE, so I wasn’t to excited to try it out. I usually don’t use foundation but when I do I ask a lot from it. I want to cover all my breakouts, I don’t want to feel it heavy of my skin like I was wearing a mask and I definitely want to have a matte complexion for as long as possible.
I got the 40 Creamy Ivory shade which is the lightest from the 5 shades available:
- 40 Creamy Ivory
- 45 Warm Almond
- 70 Natural
- 75 Golden
- 80 Bronze
The product comes in a transparent 30 ml bottle with a black pump (a plus for hygiene) which allows me to take just the right amount of product. It’s very practical and has 12 months availability. You can order the foundation online from Max Factor if you are sure of your shade, for the price of £13.99.
The new Skin Foundation has an innovative formula that creates a look of naturally perfect looking skin. I think you’ve heard this phrase before from almost every brand. So I was really skeptical at first but after I tried it on my skin I felt the difference instantly.
I don’t use a foundation brush since my complexion is combination to oily and I usually use a foundation sponge just to fix the product better onto my skin, or my hands when I’m in a hurry (don’t you?).
I’ve read positive reviews about the Second Skin Foundation but you’ll notice if it’s good or not for your skin only after you try it. On me it really looked and felt like a second skin. It was absorbed fast into the skin with a really good coverage leaving my skin not completely matte but with a natural glow.
The texture is so light that all day I didn’t even felt that I had foundation on my complexion and my oiliness was under control all the time. I can really say that Max Factor Second Skin Foundation it’s like having a make-up artist in your handbag!
My skin looked healthy and what I like most was that it didn’t leave the impression that I had a mask on. I can’t say that it provides the best coverage so if you are having more serious things to hide other than breakouts, redness or small pimples I would say to go for something with a full coverage. I’m curious to test it during the summer on those hot temperatures and see how it goes. 🙂
I’m almost in my 30’s, so for me it worked great when I wanted to hide some little imperfections from time to time. It contains unique multi-tonal pigments, provides virtually undetectable coverage and synchronizes with the skin for a look of natural perfection.
It lasted on my skin all day without fading or needing a retouch. After 8-9 hours I came home and removed my makeup and I was happy to notice that my skin was not dry and my complexion was not tern. 🙂 I fell that Second Skin Foundation protects my complexion against pollution and all that dust you can feel in a crowded city.
The texture is really smooth and can be blended flawlessly into your own complexion leaving no lines and no traces. My complexion looked perfect in any light and it’s hard to say that you are even wearing a foundation.
Max Factor says that Second Skin acts as a base from which to create a perfect natural look.
Have you girls tried this foundation yet? Please let me know about your experience if you did and if you haven’t tried it yet I hope you liked my review and if you are looking for a foundation with a light texture that will leave your skin looking flawless you can give this one a try. 🙂
