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.
