Max Factor Ageless Elixir Foundation+Serum 895php($18)
with SPF 15. Warm Almond 45 is the 2nd lightest shade out of the 7 available. Don't worry the darkest shade is really for dark skinned gals. :)
Upon seeing in the label the word “Ageless”, I quickly thought it was something for my mom. I was scared of using anti-aging products as some ingredients are not suited for my oily skin. I decided that I’ll give her the foundation after trying it once. I changed my mind. After applying it on my face, I saw how great my skin looks already. My face feels smooth and lines/pores/imperfections soften a bit like it was lightly photoshopped. It looks so natural also that I don’t need to set it with a powder, its better on its own. So, no..this product is sticking with me. I sense that I’ll be using this a lot. Plus the fact that it’s oil-free, makes my skin jump for joy. Hehe. :)
The secret to the foundation’s innovation is in the well-blended, oil-free ‘elixir’ formula, which helps to:1. Deliver instant coverage – through Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum’s specially treated pigments that reflect light and resist aggregating in fine lines. Soft focus spheres are also at work to diffuse light across the skin and blur the edges of fine lines and wrinkles optically.2. Improve skin tone by protecting and hydrating -- via Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation _ Serum’s moisturizing skincare complex containing Glycerin, Niacinamide and N-Acetyl Glucosamine and an Anti-oxidant package comprising Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Allantoin, Panthenol and Green Tea, plus, importantly, SPF 15 to give daily protection from UV radiation and prevent the return of further age spots.
The foundation glides on smoothly/easily because of its mousse like texture. It has no strong foundation scent like the others, but smells just like apples -- makes you less worried of how gentle it is to the skin.
Wearing only the foundation and concealer for the eye bags. that's it. I really can wear this on its own!
