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 . 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.
