Max Factor Pan-Stick
China Doll complexion
I bought this mainly for the nostalgia factor but boy was I surprised at how smooth and creamy it made my skin look. I have used the most expensive department store foundations and they don't compare. My face actually feels like it's being gently caressed by this makeup! I'll never use another foundation again.

Love hate relationship with Pan Stick
This is not Vermont Country Store's fault so I am not sure this comment will make any difference to who ever is making the product now.
My mother wore Pan Stick in the 40's when it first came out and wore it until she died at 87 years old. She had amazing skin and would have been a beautiful poster girl for the product.
I am 71 and have worn it since junior high school in the early 50's and through out my life. I paid $1.25 for a large tube. Even though it did not have sun screen years ago (not sure if it does now) but both me and my mother swear it helped keep our skin protected from the sun. It covers beautifully, keeps skin soft and stays on all day. I am appalled that the company has not marketed it in drug stores anymore, has made the product smaller and is charging an astronomical price for it and now I have to pay for shipping. I doubt if i will ever buy it again. I will start searching for another product to take it's place, very sad. Loved my old Pan Stick!!!

new smaller size product
I was happy still to be able to buy this product. It is the only foundation product recommended by my doctor that does not contain ingredients to which I and his other sensitive-skin patients are allergic. However, I was a little disappointed to see that the quantity of the pan sticks is about half of those I purchased previously, but they cost twice as much. (Go figure!)

I started using this product 20 years ago by accident. I am a faithful customer and always will be. Since using this product I noticed that people really misguessed my age, it was fun at first and then it became exciting to me. I am 68yrs old, and I tell you no lie, no one ever gets my age correctly, not even the people at the Circus that try for money. They guess my age to around late 40 or early 50. How great is that!!!! I have never had a face lift or used Botox. My husband may be only 1yr. younger then I am, but they think he is "a lot" older then I am.

I was hesitant to order this coverup after reading the reviews because one of them stated something about it resembling a pancake makeup. But after trying the one I received I am ordering more. I can't believe how much I like this makeup. It covers beautifully with just a touch of your finger and even has a very slight fragrance when putting it on which dissipates soon thereafter which is a shame because it is a very nice, soft smell. I am so glad I tried this. I have been buying my makeup from you for at least a couple of years now and am always ready to try your products as I am eternally grateful for what you offer. Can't seem to find anything like your products anywhere and I keep coming back for more. This one is definitely at the top of the list!

Max Factor Panstick Dreamy and Creamy
I have been using Max Factor Panstick for over 55 years. I have found it to be the best foundation on this planet. I have tried others but nothing comes close.
I was happy to find that Vermont Country Store is stocking it. I just wish they would get the color Suntone. That is the best shade for my skin. I am currently using Olive, but it is a bit too light for me
but doable. I highly recommend this product. I was not happy to see Max Factor go overseas. I went into a state of withdrawal when I could not find this product anywhere in the US.

Makeup for Performing
I'm a performing with a Sr. Dance group and have always perform most of my life. Max Factor Pan Stick was always used as my stage makeup. I no longer could find it in the stores. I was delighted when I found it in your catalog. Its the best for stage makeup and reasonably priced which makes it even better. Thank you for bringing it back!
