The 'truth lights' remedy: Max Factor Age Renew Foundation
Ladies, I've recently tried out Max Factor's Age Renew Foundation in Warm Almond and I've been spotting that warm glow all over my face even after the entire day being out under the sweltering summer heat. Here's the science behind this foundation: Age Renew Foundation contains pigments held in a fixed fluid film that soften fine lines and wrinkles and cover blemishes without settling into or accentuating texture. However, in addition to covering the signs of ageing, Age Renew Foundation also uses light enrichers to create an instant "warm light effect" that makes skin appear more translucent and restores inner warmth and radiance.
I'm so happy. Now I don't have to look like a ghost when I'm at airports. You know, some of them have really awful truth lights.
Another reason to love, especially moi the skin obsessed beauty junkie; this foundation not only helps you to look great and flawless, it nourishes your skin over time too. Renew contains an advanced skincare complex, with vitamins B3, B5, E, green tea extract and penta-peptide. It has been shown to help reveal new skin and fight the signs of ageing over time. Isn't that more reason to just love it? After 8 hours of application, my skin still feels soft and dewy and never cakey. I hate it when foundation cakes and accentuates the lines further. The finish for the foundation is natural and dewy and it's perfect for me. The coverage is great for a natural look, but for those who have more to conceal, I suggest using a concealer before and then applying the foundation over for more coverage.
The price is great too. It's a drug store brand after all but the performance is stellar. So far, I've not broken out yet. Touch wood I hope it won't coz I'll be really crushed. An extra plus point, it has SPF 10 in it too.
After all the good things, here are my gripes over it...
Max Factor claims that Renew will make you look 5 years younger after using it. But, I've yet to see that promise coming through. In fact, I think it's quite a far-fetched claim to make in the first place. It so doesn't make me 5 years younger, oh how I wish, but it does make me look flawless and yet natural. I don't look like I have a mask on, which I absolutely loathe about certain foundations. I would say it's a first class foundation and excels in all areas except that tall claim. I have to stress this another time, it's great for the skin too with those skin-loving ingredients in its formula.
Would I purchase it again, I definitely would without any hesitations. Would you ladies give this a try?
