I had my work Christmas party last weekend which was the perfect opportunity to get a bit glammed up and raid my makeup stash. When it comes to a highly anticipated party, you really want to look your best, so you pull out all of your favourite products. For me, i’ve got my favourite eyeshadows and mascara and lipsticks, but the product I tend to struggle with most is foundation. But this time, I felt like I had it sorted… I’ve fallen back in love with an old favourite that I used to use years ago – the Lasting Performance foundation from Maxfactor.
I really rate Maxfactor for their foundations, and this one is pretty up there in my opinion. I am the shade 101 Ivory Beige which blends in beautifully to match my skin tone without oxidising much at all. I would personally describe the finish as a demi-matte formula; it’s matte enough to get rid of shine but not cakey or flat – it still gives a subtle luminous look and makes the skin look perfected. I put this on in the morning and it’s still going strong in the afternoon without the need for touch-ups. It’s designed to stay put and not rub off but without that thick heavy duty look. So it was an ideal choice for a night out. I found that my skin looked healthy with my blemishes covered, and products layered well on top of it.
I love this foundation and the look it gives. I’d really recommend this product to those who want a medium to buildable coverage with minimal fuss but a great finish on the skin. Plus it’s affordable and available in the drugstore.
