Max Factor Age Renew Foundation
This is a truly lovely foundation. I was a little wary of paying $36 at first, but I dont regret it at all. It has lasted me nearly a year, and the pump action packaging means it's not exposed to air, so it doesn't dry out. The consistency is almost like a whipped mousse, light and fluffy. It's an anti-ageing foundation so it's great if you're over 30, as it smooths the appearance of fine lines, illuminates your skin and disguises dark shadows. It claims to make you look five years younger and I think it lives up to this claim. Age Renew foundation won a Beauty Heaven Glosscars Award in 2008, so I guess it's not just popular with me!
My only slight gripe would be that my shade, Creamy Ivory, is slightly darker than I'm used to. My shade in foundation and concealer is always Ivory or Light (the lightest shade available) and this is a bit darker than that shade normally is. But, as it turns out, it doesn't look weird or too dark on me, it just makes my complexion appear more natural, instead of really pale!
