The End of an ERA: Max Factor Discontinued in the USA

19 Sep

This is so sad…Max Factor has been around FOREVER. 😦

I was going to go foundation hunting this weekend, and Max Factor was first on my list of things to try. Boo. 😦

I’m looking up reviews on cheap makeup (Revlon, Maybelline, Cover Girl, etc.). None of them seem combination-skin-friendly! @#$#@$^@! (Imagine a 30 second sound bite strewn with obscenities and references to tea-bagging) .

Oh and Maybelline sucks donkey balls. I know I’ve already said it, but I’ll say it again – what is up with the small amount of shades they have?! MEH.

Benefit has a concealer that looks amazing (I’ve been told you can just use that instead of foundation because it covers imperfections so well), but it’s 26 DOLLARS [As opposed to euros or conch shells? – editor’s note]. *sniff*

I’ve never used Max Factor foundation before, so I’m going to buy some tomorrow! 😀

I’m most likely going to buy their Pan-Stik foundation, and if they have it, their Pancake one. I really want the pancake one to be there, because in its heyday Judy Garland was their spokesperson for it! Which means it’s a vintage product! And you know I loves the vintage. But I heard it can be hard to find, so cross your fingers!

Update: Just found out Pan-Stik is vintage too! Below is an ad for Pancake from 1952.

Dita’s coming out with a beauty book AND perfume! I am getting them both. She’s also doing a music album as well, and her favorite foundation is True Match by L’Oreal. Hmm. I tried the concealer, but it was nothing to write home about. Perhaps the foundation is different? Now I’m dying to get it!

Speaking of foundation, I tried the new 24 hour one by Maybelline. I love how it doesn’t cake on the face (when it comes to that it’s even better than Revlon’s Colorstay), but damn, their choice of shades are TERRIBLE. The palest shade still makes me look orange. *sigh*

It's just not fair to look this good.

Product Review: Cover FX…sort of

14 Jun

So, I had intended to do a thorough review of Cover FX’s Total Coverage Cream Foundation and Mineral Foundation, but all along the way I had a saboteur waiting in the wings for the opportunity to pounce and destroy every chance at happiness I might have found with flawless-looking skin.

Product Reviews: We have our standards

28 Feb

We, the Ladies of Singlarity, are willing to try out products that have been suggested to us — within reason. Not that we’ve had unreasonable requests… not that we’ve had any requests. So far, the reviewed products are straight from RetroVixen’s extensive make-up closet, as opposed to the usual kit, bag or shelf in the bathroom that the rest of us have.

In this product review: a list of products we will not review, Maybelline Lash Stiletto, Cover Girl Lash Blast and Mary Kay’s Lash Lengthening Mascara.
