View Full Version : Makeup that won't wear off or fade

I was wondering if you all would help me figure out which ones I should use that stay on and don't fade. I have used the Cover Girl one before. It always wears off.

I don't know how old you are but you may want to try Dermablend, it is available at JC Penney. It is in a tiny little round pot and it will last forever. It is water-resitant and is basically used for people with severe coloration problems or scars. This stuff is hard in the container and read the directions and make sure you set it with powder. It is really great stuff, just read how to apply. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif">

Dermablend is more for covering scars and tattoos, it's REALLY heavy. I model, and I use Ultima II Wonderwear for heavy coverage, and Max Factor Lasting Performance, which is my absolute favorite, for medium coverage. Go over the foundation with a light dusting of loose, translucent powder, too, and it will hold it on better. Hope that helps!

Hi! Vegas girl is right. Max factor lasting performance is definitely a good one. Unfortunately i had to stop using it cause i have really oily skin and it just made it worse. But i swear it definitely stays on and doesn't rub off so it's worth a try.

Just to back everyone else up really! Dermablend is brilliant, but is right that it's a lot heavier than most foundations and is used to cover scaring, birth marks etc. I also use Max Faxctor, always have, would never use any other foundations, so i hope my experiance will help! I started using Lasting performance, which is great, only for the day when you need a lighter make-up and don't want to look so made up and just want something quick and easy i use their facefinity compact foundation, i have only just started using this one but i find it really easy to apply, and you don't even need to use powder with it! I carry it in my handbag to touch up, but i never have to!

Good Luck!!

Please try Clinique...I love there "Double Face Powder" when used with the foundation the coverage is flawless..Heck I don't even really need to use the foundation because the face powder works so well. It is also hypoallergenic...a plus
