My New Favorite

Over the years I have tried several different kinds of make-up. I've used expensive ones from the mall, cheap ones from Wal-Mart, and in between. In the last couple of years I've gone back and forth between Merle Norman and Bare Minerals. These are two completely different kinds of foundations. I loved using Merle Norman Long Lasting Foundation because it will last most all day without me having to touch it up. It is great for the school year because I never touch my make-up after 6 in the morning. This one is about $40 for a small tube. In the summer, I loved using Bare Minerals, you know the one off TV. It is by far the healthiest make-up I think that I've ever used. It covers well and does not clog pores. I do believe that it would be great for teens especially those who are just beginning to use make-up. It gives a more natural appearance and you don't have make-up lines. The bad side to this make-up is that it doesn't last all day, so by the time I get home from school, it is gone.

In the last few weeks, I've tried a new make-up.

This little jewel is my new favorite. It is the Max Factor Pan Stick. You apply it with a sponge, so no messy make-up hands! It stays on all day with out touch-up. It is less than $10 at Wal-Mart.

Along with my stay on make-up, I love stay-on lipstick. This is my favorite.

I've never seen the Max Factor stick, but I'm anxious to try it now. Thanks for the product review!

Thanks for sharing! I have the same feeling about bare minerals. I like it in the Summer.
But, when working all day I go
to my all-day with staying power Estee Lauder that I've been using since 8 th grade! I'm glad you've tried this, I've got to find something cheaper!

I loved Ultimate II foundation...used it for years until JCPenney stopped carrying it. For the past 7 to 10 years (I guess), I have been using Relvon ColorStay. It is just a good as the Ultimate II, but at over half of the cost. Plus, it has some sunscreen protection too. Also, I can go swimming and it is STILL on!!!! Don't ya just love a good deal!!!!
