MaxFactor Ageless Elixir 2-in-1 Foundation and Serum review!

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend wherever you are!

Before I start my review I would just like to mention that I DID NOT give permission to anyone other than Gemma who runs the fan sites for Blue to use the photos from my blog from the Terence Trout fashion show.
I uploaded them onto here to share the news with my readers and the next morning realised they had been taken and were used on various sites without me giving my permission.
I am dissappointed but there isn’t much I can do at this stage.

On a happier note the review I will be writing about is MaxFactor’s Ageless Elixir 2-in-1 foundation and serum.
Maxfactor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 foundation.
As soon as I saw the foundation on the back of my hand I realised it was one shade lighter than my skintone but little me being me I still wanted to try it (nothing a bit of bronzer can’t fix)
I applied it to my skin and immediately loved the feel of it, the texture of the foundation was silky smooth and left my skin feeling gorgeous. Looking at the product again I realised this was probably because of the serum in it.
I also like the way it has SPF15 in it which helps protect our skin against daily UV damage. Bonus!
Ageless Elixir
Ageless Elixir does what it says, it provides you with full coverage so any age spots you may have will get covered but don’t think fine lines and wrinkles will dissappear, it’ll just make them look smoother.
Don’t apply a lot in one go, just take it easy and blend it in to the skin bit by bit and build up the coverage slowly, this way you’ll get a natural look with just the right amount of coverage that you want.
I wouldn’t recommend this foundation for teens or early 20’s skin types as it’s better suited for over 30’s because it’s main purpose is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to make you look younger.
I tried this on my mama and it made her look radiant and really healthy, she doesn’t need much coverage but this really suited her skin type and she also loved how smooth it made her skin feel!
It lasted all day and there wasn’t any shine, I actually think it looked better as the day went on.
Now I know I really should have a picture on here of my mamas skin but she’s a little bit camera shy and won’t let me take any photos of her but take it from me, she looks good! 馃檪
Packaging.
聽Like the Xperience foundation I love the way MaxFactor have a little clear box on it to show you the colour of the product with the name and number underneath.

2 in 1 Foundation and serum
It really does make it easy for people to pick out their shade plus it show’s Maxfactor have put in that extra thought for their customers!聽

Verdict.
I’m going to give this an 8/10 as it’s not really suitable for every skin type.
As mentioned above this is ideal for skin over 30’s or for people with fine lines and wrinkles that want to look younger.聽
I like the little extras such as the serum and SPF 15 as I feel that a lot of people will really benefit from this product because it has things that helps protect our skin from the day-to-day stresses!
Make sure you all check out Maxfactor’s website where you will be able to choose your shade for the foundation and lots more throughout the website! 馃檪
