Max Factor Smooth Effect Foundation in Sand 60
Unfortunately, that’s all the good things I have to say about this.
When you get the product onto your fingers/brush/sponge, you’ll get a whiff of a pungent, sour, plastic-y smell. I’d like to say you get used to it, but it bothers me up to this very day, and I bought this like half a year ago.
After application, it looks beautifully natural and smooth. After a couple of hours, my face turns into an oil spill. My T-zone gets especially shiny. If I use my Clean & Clear Oil Control Film, it only takes around an hour before I have to de-grease again. I checked, and the bottle says oil-free—so what is happening?!
It transfers, too. When I wore this, I couldn’t lean on my boyfriend’s chest or shoulders without leaving an orange stain. My handkerchiefs are always spotted with the stuff, and the neckline of my clothes too. Ew. Such Oompa-Loompa feels.
Verdict: Way too expensive for the piss-poor quality! Frickin’ NO. Thanks to this product, I am never buying a Max Factor product again.
