So I decided that this week, I would apply one of these "once loved but long forgotten" foundations every day and remember why I loved them in the first place.
Today I opted for Max Factor Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation.
I remember when I very first tried this foundation and I didn't like it at all. I even reviewed it explaining why I didn't like it. I then left it for a while and tried again, only to fall in love with it and once again featured it on my blog. So this is actually going to be the 3rd time I'm talking about Miracle Touch. Now as I haven't used this foundation for probably close to a year, I was a bit worried thinking maybe its past its shelf life but once I applied it, it applied just like it used too and I instantly remembered why I used to love it.
I would say its a foundation for normal/combination skin. Its super creamy but not greasy. Its easy and quick to apply, blends seamlessly and gives an amazing airbrush finish. Leaving my skin so soft and smooth. The coverage is easily build-able, if certain areas need a bit more coverage than others without it resulting in a heavy finish. Although it comes with a sponge applicator I find I get a more flawless finish by using my fingers or a foundation brush. I tend to use my fingers more often than not though. I also find only a tiny amount of powder is needed to set this. It dries to such a gorgeous finish on my skin, that I really don't want to apply powder but kind of feel not complete without doing so. I really do like how easy this foundation is to apply and I love the finish it achieves. Its not as long lasting as some of my high end foundation, but I still do get a good 6 hours or so without needing any form of touch up. The only downside I can really find with this foundation, is that there's just not enough product. Although the jar does look a good size, the glass is quite thick, so it makes it look like there's more product than there actually is.
Overall its one of the better drugstore foundations available.
