Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation

I would like to review for you this new foundation by Max Factor*. I'm super fussy when it comes to foundation, often opting for a BB cream instead. I have terrible pores and imperfections on my skin and foundations tend to make them much worse. Also as my skin is combination I find foundation slips off my face after 4 hours of wear around my T-zone.

The shade Light Ivory suited my skin tone and despite being creamy to the touch settled with a matte finish once applied. My skin looked brighter but not shiny, something very important for those of us who are wary of luminizing products. I always set my foundation with a transparent powder for extra staying power so I can't say how long it would last without this I'm afraid.

About 4 hours into my shift at work I had forgotten I was even wearing foundation, it was so light to wear. I checked my appearance and no excess oil was showing through. I didn't have to touch up anything. After 8 hours it had started to fade slightly but I do have a physical job.

I would highly recommend this foundation to those like me prefer a light-weight texture. It had a light to medium coverage so concealer is still needed for inperfections. My skin didn't dry out nor did it fall off my face after a few hours wear so would be perfect for those with a combination skin.
