Foundation that made it’s début at Victoria Beckham’s (AW14) show; with the look created by Pat McGrath? Need I say more? I am in!
What foundation was that? Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer. I was sent one of the shades, so here are my thoughts:
The packaging is made of plastic, which may not look or feel so chic as my favourite, sadly discontinued Second Skin, but it is very handy for travelling and taking it with you, it is very light.
The pump is very well made, it dispenses even a very small amount of product so you don’t waste any.
What about the foundation itself?
It has a
I am a huge fan of Max Factor’s Second Skin foundation! It is actually the only foundation that I have ever finished, which says a a lot. Last week I’ve learned that it is being discontinued, so I did actually get upset. But I was assured that the replacement which is called 3-in-1 All Day Flawless foundation should be amazing.
I haven’t tried it yet so can’t say anything yet but I will definitely pick up a back up of Creamy Ivory from the Second Skin range before it’s gone.
The foundation acts like primer, foundation and also has SPF 20. It contains Advanced Flexi Hold Polymer System which is a ‘flexible film that adheres to the face to provide lasting coverage’.
Some top Make-Up Artists already sing praise to this foundation, and Pat McGrath used it at Valentino AW 2012 show so

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today I just wanted to share with you what makeup products I’ve been loving lately so if you have any questions about them, feel free to ask.
I have a lot of photos with beautiful makeup but unfortunately most of the time I don’t know where the photo is from
Some of my readers told me that they would love to see more posts about the drugstore makeup. So I thought, why not? For the last several weeks I’ve been testing some drugstore makeup items that I was able to find in my collection.
So in July’s favourites I’ve included some of those products.
1.Too Faced Natural Eye Palette
I got this palette back in fall and even made swatches but I just forgot about it until I’ve found it this month. You get 9 pretty eye shadows both matte and shimmery finish. I got mine from the USA for $35. I will be sure to write a detailed review with swatches as soon as I can.
2.Max Factor Lash Extension Effect mascara
I’ve been using this mascara a lot and I love how it divides the lashes and it works perfect for the lower lashes. You can read review and see photos of it here.
3.Max Factor Second Skin foundation in Creamy Ivory
This is one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried and you can find out why here.
4.BECCA Jewel Dust in Asrai
First of all I have to say that I love the package, not only it’s gorgeous but it also has small holes in it so the product stays inside the container. And also, althought it’s not glass, the package doen’t look cheap! As for the shade, it’s so beautiful: iridescent pink with some small glitter. I love dusting it over the cream eye shadows. I promise to write a review later.
5.Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in Pink Gossip
It’s a hot pink lipstick which stays on for a very long time and is great for summer. But I only
