Excellent light to medium coverage
I have used Max Factor foundations in the past and have been happy with them so I was quite keen to give this a try. I rate highly that it has both spf and serum - it goes on really easily (I use on top of moisturiser) and it is very easy to get good, even light coverage which you can then build up where you need to.
As a bonus it has a lovely light floral scent to it. It sets nicely with powder, lasts well and doesn't make my skin feel greasy.
You need very little (well, I only do very light coverage) so it lasts. I'd definitely consider buying this again.

This foundation is lightweight and gives a natural coverage. It makes my complexion dewy and radiant. It is great for on the go as it blends like a dream, I don't even need to use a brush. I find that I don't need to use concealer under my eyes as this foundation makes them brighter. Also it smells absolutely incredible.

U bought this quiet awhile ago & everytime I hear about it I think "oh must remember to buy this again!"
The colour range is really good,
It feels amazing on. The consistency feels powdery but while its on your face it feels very smooth & gives a natural finish, I also remember the bottle lasted quiet a while with everyday use & the lasting power was quite good for someone with oily skin even though it doesn't advertise that :)

Not for me
This product reminds me of the cover girl 2 tone with Olay. This foundation is lightweight and almost feels like your applying moisturiser because it is easy to blend. The coverage is light and I find when I wear sunnies or touch my nose the foundation will rub off on those areas so that's annoying. I wouldn't recommend this product to people with oily skin as I have combo skin and have found this product to get quite oily on my face. This product would be best suited to dry-normal skin.

It's light and blends in with the skin perfectly, it has become my every day foundation and STRONGLY recommend it, and it has me hooked on it. One more thing that surprised me and amazed me is that it doesn't finish off as fast as the other ones <3 which I love that. Worth the buy <3

Another fantastic foundation from Max Factor
What can I say? This foundation meets all my needs!
I have this foundation in light ivory (40) which suits my skin tone perfectly. I am very pale and it can be quite a challange finding a foundation that comes light enough for me.
The foundation comes in a great pump bottle and I find that half a pump gives me enough foundation to cover my face and down my neck.
This foundation has a nice, light creamy formula that spreads easily giving light to medium coverage in just minutes.
This foundation does not budge all day even without powder (but the product does fare better when used with a powder to set it) and blends well into my skin making sure that no one notices thatI have any makeup on.
Also it has a lovely slight rose scent which gives the makeup a bit of an old world pamper feel to it which is hardly noticable.
Another fantastic foundation from Max Factor!

good for everyday
i borrowed this from a friend once after a big night and i found that it made my skin look much better. although it was a bit dark for me it covered my imperfections quite well, and felt lightweight. it is easily applied and blends well. its also good because it has spf protection, whichwould be great for an everyday foundation.

Best in Beauty 2012
I wanted to resubmit my review on Max Factor's Ageless Elixir 2 in one Foundation plus Serum because I believe that this foundation definitely deserves a nomination.
Being a mineral powder foundation user, it had been so long between liquid foundations. Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation and serum did not sound like an ordinary foundation, this is what appealed to me. Containing ingredients such as Vitamin E, allantoin, niacinamide, green tea..the anti ageing fighting list goes on. A definite plus for me is that this foundation contains an SPF factor of 15, giving protection from harsh UV rays, one of the worst contributors to signs of ageing.
Having seven shades to choose from, I found the perfect tone for my skin in the shade, Golden.
The Max Factor foundation comes in a pump dispenser, making it easy and mess free when extracting product. The liquid feels almost like a whipped consistency. Thanks to the serum in the product, the foundation application is a breeze. This says a lot, considering I am out of practice when it comes to applying a liquid. It glides effortlessly over the skin and blends like a dream.
I would say that this product gives light to medium coverage. I decided to not use concealer or setting powder, just for testing purposes. My imperfections were not totally hidden, but the foundation did give me the look of a more even skintone, without looking, or most importantly, feeling too heavy. I love how even the application looked. No foundation settled in my fine lines or my enlarged pores, which is a huge accomplishment, especially considering the fact that I had not used a primer during testing.
Max Factor foundation provided a glow, without looking oily. In fact, I have combination skin, and I often have to touch up my makeup to cover my oily T-zone. Expecting to reapply, imagine my surprise when this foundation lasted throughout the day!
I have not been using the foundation long enough to determine if there has been any positive changes to my skin, but I am very happy, and more than willing to continue use. A bottle will not need replacing in a hurry, as not a lot of product is needed for face and neck.
It is seriously worth considering using Max Factor Elixir 2 in 1 found

flawless & light weight
Usually I'm not a big fan of Max Factor but this foundation has made me think twice about there product. Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum is so lightweight it feels like I'm applying my moisturizer and it has a medium - full coverage but that's not all! it has SPF 15 which help protect you from the sun! I highly recommend this foundation if you want and easy to blend foundation with a flawless finish. :)

Lovely foundation light and dewy which is what I love. Blends and smoothes easily. Did not completely cover all my imperfections but coverage is even and smooth.
