Got my paws on Max Factor’s new foundation, Second Skin to try out. AS some of you will know, I am foundation mad, yet its such a stupid make up item to buy regularly – I never or should I say rarely, finish a base product.
I got this in Golden which is a teeny, teeny bit too light for my NC35. I think Bronze would be a better match for the future without looking dirty faced.
There is an excellent foundation tutorial by Caroline Barnes on the Max Factor site here. The only annoying bit is when the models start talking rubbish – gob shut, sit down and look pretty, please.
Now – the base itself is called Second Skin, so obviously it should be a really light, natural, glowy base:
The texture is not super sheer, like you would expect from a natural foundation which I like as I have quite dry skin.
This foundation is really really really nice. Really nice.
Considering the fact that most of the base products I buy are about £30 upwards and this is £11.99 at Boots (or less if you shop around) its a a brilliant base.
Basically I found the foundation have me good coverage but felt so so so light, so natural and glowy. It really is almost undetectable on the skin – just so flattering and soft! I love it! No streaking, so orange face, just effortless.
I’ve been testing out base products like crazy this week, but this really stands out to me. It reminds me a bit of Prescriptives Traceless foundation – perfect for those who want a really natural look.
