Powder Max Factor I have used for many years and was happy with it. But then she somehow slipped out of my life. And now, a year later, I returned to her. It seemed that the powder with such a long history can't remember. As unchanged the dust comes up from 1953! But my gut tells me that somewhere there is a catch. Otherwise I can't explain the subtle change not for the better. About their experiences will tell the opinion.
Name: Compact cream powder Max Factor Creme Puff
Tone: No. 50 NATURAL
Price: 259 roubles (the price shown includes discount)
The powder is packaged in a round plastic jar with a lid. The design is executed in black and Golden tones on the lid caused a brand title of the manufacturer. The design is recognizable, it is not to confuse but to me, it looks too retro. The plastic is high quality, did not buy this powder, nothing wrong with it never happened. The lid sits tightly, protecting the powder from unauthorized opening. When I wear it in the bag, the lid does not fly.
The powder is quite dense compressed. When you set neither a brush nor a sponge is not dusty. For this, definitely a big plus. Recruited very thin, barely visible layer. The skin gives a very invisible high-quality coating. Perfect. For that, I love her)
The shade I have, No. 50 natural. In my opinion this is the most beautiful, very natural color without chicken yellow and reddishness. The powder is completely invisible and completely blends with my main tone. But it is clear that it noticeably smoothes and mattes the skin. I think this shade would suit most fair-skinned girls. The colors of the powders are quite extensive and each can choose for themselves the appropriate tone.
We should also talk about the smell. The first time I bought it, was unpleasantly surprised by its flavor. She smelled like the dust of the Soviet era. Smell the powder of my grandmother and mother). Then mix either talc, or baby powder, plus a fragrance type "Red Moscow". This scent seems at first a very vivid and repulsive. But to it quickly get used, to the benefit of the skin it does not stay long and I cease to notice it.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH
Powder used as a solo on bare skin and atop Foundation. Both I equally like.
Use both dry and wet. And I confess that wet I even like it more. She literally merges with the skin, if it is a thin layer sprayed liquid Foundation. Skin looks matte, not tight, as is the case with a dry texture, but very tender and fresh.
The powder does not block the strong disadvantages of a worsening of acne or fresh traces of acne. But perfectly evens the complexion, smoothes the skin, makes it smooth and matte. Due to the small reflective particles smooths enlarged pores, dividing them more noticeable. Your skin will be illuminated from the inside, but it looks very natural.
It instantly eliminates Shine, giving the skin a natural look. My oily skin looks normal without dryness and greasy Shine. Durability it is very good, lasts 5-6 hours, but the intense heat about 3-4 hours, then I need dusting in the "t-zone". During the day, not break, not rolled, does not sink into pores. In my opinion for a cream Foundation - excellent performance.
The powder does not clog pores or provoke acne. Did not cause irritation or allergies. Safely wear it in the summer and admire the clean skin.

For some reason I thought that pressing the dust became too dense. After use, the surface of the powder is quickly erased (salted), it becomes like stone and work up the sponge. Something I do not recall that I had a similar problem. Maybe this opinion was formed due to the fact that I don't use it for more than a year (as stated previously the grass was greener). And perhaps with the disappearance of the sponge has changed the recipe of the powder. And I can't help feeling that the powder is no longer what it was before.
✔easy and seamless coverage without weight
✔durability up to 6 hours
✔wet and dry method of application
✔dries, tightens, skin
✖lack of mirror and sponge
✖the surface of the powder is quickly erased
The powder is "Max Factor Creme Puff" gives a very light and subtle coverage without being heavy. But she is very well evens skin tone, giving the face a fresh and beautiful look. Perfectly removes oily sheen, visually smooths the pores and skin's surface. For me it would be almost perfect if it would surface so quickly was not erased. I can't help feeling that the quality of the powder has changed not for the better. I'm going to use it until I find a better option.
Thank you for your attention!
