  • I found Max Factor erace concealer when I was looking to replacement my usual makeup, which I had run out of
  • It was on sale for very cheap at the local pharmacy, so I figured I'd give it a shot since I enjoyed it as a kid, and know now how to properly apply makeup
  • Now, I love the makeup I normally use, but I need something a little stronger specifically for my undereye circles, which requires a thicker coverage, and liquid makeup doesn't cover it, and I didn't want to buy a whole thing of two-in-one concealer just for this problem so the stick was a perfect solution

      Most girls start wearing makeup when they are barely a teenager. And, like most barely-teenagers, I wasn’t too clear on how to properly apply make-up. The first kind of makeup I ever tried was a Max Factor product, and it was as thick and goopy as stage makeup, that was five shades too dark and orange for my very fair skin tone, because I was pilfing it from my mother who used to run a tanning salon. Not smart, I know. But, though the makeup was totally the wrong kind and color for my skin, even then I knew it covered really well if it was applied properly. I’ve always had exceptionally blotchy skin, with dark circles under my eyes that never dissipated no matter how much sleep I got or how many cucuumbers I mutilated for my eye washes, and it’s been hard over the years to find a concealer that would cover the dark circles without looking artificial in any way. I’ve tried department store very expensive cosmetics and found

      them to be no better than cheaper drug store cosmetics and though the department stores will have you believe theirs is better for your skin, it’s all dependant upon the kind of skin you have to begin with. My skin is very oily and prone to breakouts, sometimes light and sometimes not so light, so I need a makeup that wont clog my pores, will help clear up existing breakouts, and will cover the blotchy skin tone.

      I found Max Factor erace concealer when I was looking to replacement my usual makeup, which I had run out of. It was on sale for very cheap at the local pharmacy, so I figured I’d give it a shot since I enjoyed it as a kid, and know now how to properly apply makeup. It comes in a tube, like a lipstick, and there aren’t that many shade options available, but when I saw “fair”, i figured that was my best bet. I’m as pale as pale can be without actually being, you know,


      • DEAD, so I need something that’s light with more yellow tones and with less pink tones. Max Factor is known for its pink tones (which is wrong for ANY skin tone- we all have more yellow than pinks, no matter what color or shade you use), but its been years since I’d used their products and wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt.

        The price on the concealer stick is great, at only $5 (you’ll pay twice as much for a good tube of lipstick!), and I could see it carried more yellow tones, just by looking at it, then it had in the past, so there were things already in its favor. Now, I love the makeup I normally use, but I need something a little stronger specifically for my undereye circles, which requires a thicker coverage, and liquid makeup doesn’t cover it, and I didn’t want to buy a whole thing of two-in-one concealer just for this problem so the stick was a perfect solution. Easy to use

        and small enough to carry in a pocket for quick touch-ups. I just blotch the tip of the stick two or three times beneath the eye and blend it in with a sponge or my finger, though I’ve been told its better to use a disposable sponge because you can toss it, and oils on your skin wont get transfered. And really, it was like a night and day difference when I looked in the mirror. My undereye circles weren’t noticeable in the least, and I was thrilled, and it blended in great with the other foundation I typically use. This stick would be a bit much as an all-over makeup, because it’s just too thick, but if you can find a shade that blends with the foundation you normally use, it’s great for touch-ups and those harder-to-handle skin tones and fluctuations. Now I’m pretty much never without it, though its sometimes fairly difficult to find in stores these days. Max Factor has pulled through again with a great product that covers very well.
