|Max Factor Experience Foundation in Light Ivory (40), Brown Hessian (75) and Raw SIlk (45)|
I had actually been sent a sample of the Experience Foundation back when it first launched, but when I went to use it first time I really didn’t like it. I don’t know what it was (perhaps it had separated in the tube or something) but it came out much more like a mousse foundation and just didn’t blend well at all. You know when I mousse goes all uneven and a bit chalky when applied? It did that.
So I few months on, not using it – I was re-introduced at the event and the texture seemed totally different. It was a light liquid and really nice to use, and felt good on the skin. No chalky mousse-like effect in sight. So I dug out my original sample and combined it with the two I was given at the masterclass (two shades for the texture/dimension thing) and found that the original’s texture was actually, totally fine. No idea what happened on first use, but this can be a lesson in giving products more of a chance before forming opinions!
|Raw Silk, Light Ivory, Brown Hessian|
Sine I currently have a bit of a (fake) tan, I am mostly using Brown Hessian (never thought I’d use a foundation with the word brown that matches my skintone!) with a bit of either Raw Silk or Light Ivory under the eye area to help brighten the face. I mostly apply the Max Factor Experience foundation with a brush, but fingers would also be fine.

And there we have the necessary mug-shot of the foundation applied. This was taken at the end of a long day at work, so please excuse the oh-so-attractive sheen…
