Iconic and Epic: Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation

I rarely work on collab projects with my Twin and when we do, I'm extremely pressured! His craft demands the talent to be on point to the brink. :) Yesterday's project required me to wear makeup good enough for print and HD video. I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup recently (I don't want another round of acne surgery!!!) and finding the perfect and HD flawless shade's been painfully difficult.

Not too long ago, I got my hands on Max Factor's Whipped Creme Foundation in Natural. I knew it's too light for me but I found it to be interesting so I got my usual Max Factor shade, Golden. It set me back by Php 895 at SM Department store. One swipe and I knew it's going home with me.

Making its debut backstage at Valentino AW13, Max Factor Global Creative Design Director, Pat McGrath used the lightweight whipped formula to create a gorgeous, all-new flawless ‘demi-matte’ skin look for the upcoming season; “Demi-matte is a beautiful finish we created backstage at Valentino. It’s a dimensional matte finish but with a bit of brilliance - a really fresh, slightly radiant look.  Not shiny, just sophisticated and flawless. It’s going to be one of the key skin finishes for AW13.”

Before I go into the product low down, let me share with you yesterday's FOTD and see for yourself why I am in love with this drugstore product! :)

Do you see traces of acne and pigmentation??? I hope not because trust me -- I'm nursing plenty right now! The promised demi-matte finish is so light and (very, very) photogenic! This Max Factor foundation contains silicone mattifiers helping me reduce unwanted shine by diffusing the light as it hits the face. The even textured, skin finish is perfected by the combination of silicone mattifiers, water and glycerine. The best part? I've road tested this formula for 2 weeks and given I remove it thoroughly after the end of the day, there are no new pimples surfacing! YAY!

    Hmm, this is actually quite tough since you tend to play with makeup a lot (duh, of course) (green eyeshadows, white eyeliner on waterline, bubblegum lippies...etc) but I'd actually go with you haven't curled your lashes and applied mascara here! And no lipgloss as well!

    And just for kicks, no nameplate necklace (haha), however will those baristas get your name right?
