Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum. Review and Swatches

I have written a preview of Max Factor Elixir Boutique some time ago and I was actually given both lipsticks and foundation to try. So today I want to tell you about the foundation.

Since I like Max Factor foundations and Second Skin is probably my favourite foundation ever, I was excited to try the newest addition to the range.

This foundation contains serum and is developed  “to target the antiageing needs of women”. It should protect against signs of ageing such as skin discolouration and age spots over time, it also addresses the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Since I don’t have any discolouration, age spots or fine lines, I can’t make any comments on that. But I can tell my impression about the foundation in general.

It comes in a light plastic  bottle with a very convenient pump which makes the application easy. I personally absolutely love the scent of this foundation, it smells  something fresh and fruity. But the scent disappears after some time so don’t worry if

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation Review, Photos and Swatches

I’ve already posted a preview of the Illamsqua Sin Base Foundation. So today, after trying it out, I can  share my opinion.

I was very curious to try this foundation as both Illamasqua team and fans of the brand were raving about it.

I was sent the samples of three shades to try.  So I have #3 (yellow undertone), #4 (yellow/pink undertone) and #5 (pink undertone).

Although I felt in love with this foundation from the very first time I’ve tried it, I’ve decided to wait and use each shade for at least one day to give my opinion.

As you probably remember, I haven’t tried the original BB Creams so I can’t really compare the effects but I can give my opinion on the Skin Base.

This foundation is a pleasure to use, it glides on the skin and it’s easy to blend. I also liked that the product lasted for the whole day on me and did not make my dry skin look cakey at all; it did not enhance the dry patches which often happens.

If you don’t have any major problems – this foundation will be enough as it gives a beautiful natural finish with a nice coverage which is buildable.  Plus it won’t look as if you are

Bourjois Paris Healthy Mix Foundation Review and Swatches

After reading so many raves about the Healthy Mix foundation I’ve decided to get it myself. And you know what?

I have to agree with those who are impressed with this product.

It comes in a pretty packaging with a pump which make the application easy and hygienic.

The first thing that you notice is the amazing fruity smell as this foundation includes: apricot for radiance, melon for  hydration, apple for antioxidant, ginger for energy. But don’t worry, it disappears pretty soon, although I personally wish it would stay for a longer time.

What about the finish and the coverage?

It gives a medium coverage and semi-matte finish. I really like the coverage but I wish the finish was a bit more dewy although you can always mix it with the primer which gives a dewy finish, something like Satin Primer by Illamasqua which I love.

I personally
