2 Max Factor foundations I loved & hated!

I usually do not find Max Factor anywhere except in Egypt and GCC as it has been discontinued as I heard specifically in the States. And since the ingredients are not very friends to my face, I do not use their products much.

However, I had a party and I was in a hurry as suddenly I found due to the tan I took from Sharm el Sheikh's sun, none of my foundations suited my sun-kissed skin. All of them were much lighter than my current skin color. Due to that I had to run off to Mazaya city stars and the only brand the lady suggested-for some reason I didn't understand till now!- was Max Factor. I was pretty confused between two kinds of foundation and because I have a combined skin, I rarely find a good foundation that doesn't look cakey or greasy on my face, so I had to buy both just in case.

The first was Miracle touch, in Golden 75. That colors suits Medium/dark Beige skin mostly but not bronze/ebony skin. The foundation is in a compact but contaions 11.5g of products that has a soft creamy texture ( liquid illusion foundation as stated on the packaging-which is true!). Its slightly overpriced than the usual drugstore foundations (175 LE) yet its worth every single penny! It has a medium to full coverage, and doesn't greese my oily T-zone, yet slightly dries my cheeks, but I apply moisturizer either before applying my foundation so I didn't notice any cakiness :) By far, this is one of my favorite foundations for long night events.

The other foundation I purchased that day was the 3-in-1 foundation, which I think it has been discontinued and replaced with another similar name-yet better product-foundation, the photos is the one below:

This product I HATED so much, at least for my skin. It dried it out so much even if have priorly applied a moisturizer excessivley. The color variations are terrible, all of them had pink undertones and I have a beige/yellow undertone because of my middle-eastern origin. The damn thing smelled too! I really hope that no one buys this products if the every see the packaging above!
